Shadowhunters Episode 12 β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

HARRY SHUM JR., DOMINIC SHERWOODI think this is the last episode of ShadowhuntersΒ that I’m forcing myself through.

Once again, we fly through story arcs and subplots. We are introduced to Magnus Bane’s old friend Ragnar Fell on the off-chance he might know how to awaken Clary’s mom from the weird potion induced coma that she is currently floating in.Β I think his total screen time takes up 5 minutes. His total arc follows Shadowhunters trademark, go find, finish formula:Β Clary and Co. find his home, make their ways through his wards, he drops “Book of the White” as a plot point and then gets killed.

Why even introduce him? The same information could have been given to us in a note. There was nothing special except to say there are other warlocks.

Shadowhunters Ep 8 β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†

This week onΒ Shadowhunters, Clary Fray doesn’t check her phone messages. Evident with in the first few minutes of the episode.

“Oh Simon, I’ve got so much to tell you, so sorry I don’t seem to have the ability to listen to voicemail.”

I may have embellished the quote a little.

Oh but she does eventually actually listen to the voicemails, the many voicemails, that Simon left on her phone. And it’s what–days–weeks–later?
