Shadowhunters - Original Sin television review

As Simon (Alberto Rosende) begins his quest to get his marked removed, Jace (Dominic Sherwood) and Luke (Isaiah Mustafa) begin searching in earnest once they find evidence to support Luke’s theory that Clary (Katherine McNamara) is still alive. By the end of the episode Jace and Luke will get their reunion, but Simon’s journey of trudging through the subways to talk to Cain (Pasha Ebrahimi) and performing rituals for the Seelie Queen (Lola Flanery) has apparently just begun.

Shadowhunters - What Lies Beneath television review

The season’s new villain Lilith (Anna Hopkins) isn’t given much screentime in “What Lies Beneath,” but the search for her disciple the Owl (who one Shadowhunter mistakenly believes is Jonathan) takes up much of the episode. While Clary (Katherine McNamara), Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia), and an obsessed Jace (Dominic Sherwood) search for the Owl who has been killing mundanes in large numbers, Raphael (David Castro) mourns a loss, Alec (Matthew Daddario) throws a dinner party for his mother, and Simon‘s (Alberto Rosende) new powers continue to grow causing new problems with the Pack and other vampires.

Shadowhunters - Beside Still Water television review

Shadowhunters closes its Third Season by wrapping up the Valentine (Alan Van Sprang) storyline, laying the foundation for multiple conflicts next season, reigniting old passions, and (temporarily) killing a major character. Armed with the Mortal Cup and the Mortal Sword, Valentine travels to Lake Lynn to complete his master plan. The villain is successful in raising the angel Raziel, but he won’t live long enough to see his dream of a world without Downworlders come to fruition when he’s cut down by his daughter (rather easily concerning how easily he was throwing her around like a rag doll only minutes before) who uses the one wish granted by the angel to restore Jace (Dominic Sherwood) to life.

Shadowhunters - Hail and Farewell television review

“Hail and Farewell” sets up next week’s season finale and a confrontation between Clary (Katherine McNamara) and Jace (Dominic Sherwood) and Valentine (Alan Van Sprang). Before that happens, however, the Shadowhunters will square off against Jonathan (Will Tudor) and the truce between the Shadowhunters and the Downworlders will crumble as the vampires, mages, and werewolves choose to stand with the Seelie Queen (recast as Sarah Hyland, suggesting a much larger role for the character next season) and her plan to go after Valentine themselves rather than continue to rely on the Shadowhunters.
