Top 10 Book Series I Want to Start Reading

1. Embassy Row: This series is by Ally Carter and since I loved both the Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series I figure that this will be another series that I would enjoy.
2. Vampire Academy: I've recently seen the movie of this series and I liked quite a bit and everyone says the books are better than the movie which means that I'll probably end up loving this series.
3. The Trials of Apollo: This another series by Rick Riordan and this one comes after the Heroes of Olympus series which I am almost finished reading so since I love all the other books I read in this universe this one is bound to be another series I enjoyed.
4. Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: Once again I love series written by Rick Riordan and although this series follows different type of gods I'm sure that this series will end having good adventure and characters that I'll end up loving.
5. Study series: This series is one that sounded really interested to me when I first read about it and I still find it interesting so it's on my to be read list still.
6. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy: This series is one that sounds interesting to me and I have heard good things about this series so I would like to check it out for myself some time in the future.
7. Thorne of Glass series: This is a series that sounds like it could be good and a lot of people seemed to like it so I hope that I will enjoy it as well.
8. Touch of Power series: This is another series that I recall sounding interesting to me and it's one that I already own the first book of so this is one that I could start reading fairly soon.
9. His Fair Assassin Trilogy: This is a series with an uncommon set up that I think could be an interesting read.
10. Darkness Rising: This series is set in the same universe as The Darkest Powers series and since I loved that series I'm interested in reading this one as well.

TV Review: Shadowhunters: The Descent Into Hell Isn't Easy(1.02)

                          Shadowhunters: The Descent Into Hell Isn't Easy(1.02)Review
  • I like that Clary decided that Simon was coming with her once she decided to let Jace help her and I like that Jace just kind of went with it.
  • I liked that Simon was concerned when he saw Jace putting the rune on himself because to Simon it just seemed like he was burning himself.
  • I liked how when Jace has to hold Simon's hand so that Simon could see the institute that Simon told him that he shouldn't because Simon isn't Jace's type, it was just an odd way to frame that statement.
  • I like how Jace told Simon that he protecting Clary is kind of their thing and I liked that Simon was upset that they already had a thing.
  • I agree with Clary that it seems wrong that shadowhunters aren't allowed to know the history of the circle because it does seem like the clave is purposely hiding that something bad happened in their history.
  • I like that Clary insisted that she and Simon are a package deal when Jace says Simon can't go somewhere with them.
  • I like that Simon clearly has a thing for Izzy from the rest time he sees her and I like that Izzy finds Simon's rambling adorable and then asks him to have breakfast with her.
  • I liked that Jace was teasing Izzy a bit about how bad of a cook she is when he told Simon that eating Izzy's food might be more dangerous for him than runes would be.
  • I liked that Luke saved a warlock from being taken by one of the circle members that met with him last episode.
  • I think that Hodge's punishment of being confide to the institute and having his circle rune burn if he talks about the circle or Valentine is a punishment that makes sense for the crime he committed.
  • I like that Clary feels really bad for Hodge since by making him tell them what he knows about the circle their basically torturing him and I like that Jace doesn't like doing it either but he knows that Hodge is the only one who can give them the information that they need.
  • I liked that Clary and Jace shared a bit of a moment when he tells her about how he never knew his mother and she realizes that she doesn't really know anything about him.
  • I liked that Jace tells Clary that not having any training or even a plan is something that gets shadowhunters killed which calms Clary down enough that she's willing to try and come up with a plan.
  • I liked that Jace was able to figure out that Clary had her memories wipe and that with the few things Clary told him they were able to figure out that Dot was a warlock and that she could be the key to find Clary's mom.
  • I liked that Dot told Luke that she glamoured the house which is the reason why the police aren't looking for Clary and her mom.
  • I find it sad that although Luke and Dot are on the same side and they both want nothing more than to keep Clary save they don't trust each other.
  • I find it a bit scary that if a normal human is marked with a rune they'll loose their mind and start killing people and will need to be put down by shadowhunters.
  • I like how Izzy tells Simon that Jace is the best and that Clary is save with him so he doesn't have to worry about her with him.
  • I liked that when Clary was wondering about Izzy's relationship with Jace that Izzy told her that she grew up with Jace and sees him as her brother.
  • I liked how Izzy gave Clary a pep talk about how she was born to be a shadowhunter and that she had nothing to worry about because this is what she was meant to be doing.
  • I liked that Izzy told Clary that she find Simon to be nerd hot.
  • I liked that Luke knows that were Clary goes Simon will end up being there too.
  • I liked that Izzy just knew that Alec wouldn't approve of their mission.
  • I understand why Clary doesn't really care about the clave since she has no idea what they are but I feel like someone should explain to her that they are the people who make the laws for shadowhunters so what they say actually does matter so someone should let her know that.
  • I like how Clary can know where Dot is because of the necklace that her mom gave her.
  • I liked that Magnus was getting all the warlocks somewhere safe so that they could go into hiding since Valentine is now searching for warlocks.
  • I find it terribly ironic that Magnus is shaming Dot for risking her life to help a shadowhunter when he'll help them out way more often then she has in the future.
  • I liked that as soon as it becomes clear that they're not going to find Dot that Alec says they have to go back to the institute because it's not safe to be out there.
  • I liked that when Jace suggest that Clary goes to the Silent Brothers to recover her memories that both Alec and Izzy tells him it's a bad idea because of how dangerous the process is.
  • I liked that Clary decided to go to the Silent Brothers even though the process to recover her memories is a very dangerous one she thought it was worth the risk if she could save her mom.
  • I liked that when Izzy asks Simon if he's afraid that Simon tells her that he was born afraid.
  • I liked that when Jace was asking what Alec's problem with Clary was since his family welcomed strays in the past that Alec tells him that he was never a stray.
  • I liked that when Clary tells Simon that she's not freaking out because she always felt something was missing in her life and now she doesn't feel that way that he is somewhat concerned since things are pretty bad right now.
  • I'm worried for Dot since she was taken by Valentine and he is shooting her up with something that is no doubt painful.
  • I liked that Jace told Clary about how dangerous the Silent Brothers could be to her before she went to meet them and that he gave her one last chance to back out which she didn't take.
  • I liked that when Clary was hesitating outside of the city of bones that Simon told her that she could do anything to encourage her.
  • I liked that Simon didn't really believe Jace when he told him the city of bones could kill him since he lied about the runes on the training floor earlier but after both Alec and Izzy told him it was true he agreed to wait outside.
  • I liked that when Clary told Jace she was sorry for misjudging him earlier on that Jace told her he didn't have feelings which is such an obvious lie even at this point of the series. I liked that Jace also let it slip that his father was killed by Valentine which of course Clary told him she was sorry about that and that she now gets why Jace wants to help her so much.
  • I find the Silent Brothers to be creepy with their eyes and mouths being sewed shut.
  • I liked that Izzy distracts Simon from worrying about Clary by talking to him about his music.
  • I liked that when Izzy sense a threat near by that she orders Simon to stay in the van because she believes he will be safe in their but unfortunately she was wrong and the threat was in the van.
  • I feel bad for Clary when she finds out that she is in fact Valentine is her father and that of course is something that she doesn't want to be true.
  • I was so sad when I first watched this episode and thought that Valentine really did kill Dot.
  • I can't blame Alec for being suspicious of Clary after he found out that Valentine was her father because it doesn't seem like her showing up out of nowhere right when Valentine comes back is something that can be a coincident.
  • I was worried about Simon when the vampires decided to kidnap him and that they wouldn't give him back unless Clary gives them the mortal cup which she doesn't have.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: Sweet/Vicious: Pure Heroine(1.10)

                                       Sweet/Vicious: Pure Heroine(1.10)Review
  • I feel really bad for Tyler with him being charged with his brother's murder when we all know he's not guilty and I like that Jules feels guilty about him being there and wants to find a way to get him cleared of the charges.
  • I like that Kennedy and the other girls were waiting for the vigilantes response to her requests to go after Nate so that Jules can get justice.
  • I liked that with the take down of Nate that Jules and Ophelia decided that this one has to be a bit different with having them using scare tactics before the takedown takes places so that he could feel fear before hand.
  • I like that Harris actually looked into what the city does about the sexual assault cases and was upset to learn that they do basically nothing because it wouldn't be good for the university which makes him understand why Ophelia and Jules are doing the vigilante thing.
  • I like that Jules and Ophelia end up framing a pedophilic murderer for Tyler's brother's murder both because I'm glad that neither them or Tyler are going down for the crime but also because that man truly does belong in jail.
  • I dislike how most of Nate's frat brother's decided to side with him and that they protect him from Jules and Ophelia so that they couldn't do their normal takedown.
  • I was a bit surprised to find out that Nate actually raped another girl in high school because I mean I knew he was a bad person but I had no idea that he's been raping girls for that long.
  • I hated how completely unashamed Nate was about being a rapist and how he thinks that he can do whatever he wants just because he's good at football.
  • I liked that Jules and Ophelia publicly showed video of Nate talking about how he can get away with raping girls as their takedown this time since the way that usually do it didn't work this time.
  • I felt bad for Kennedy since she feels bad for missing the person she thought Nate was and feeling guilty about feeling this way since he hurt Jules so badly.
  • I like that Harris wants to help Jules and Ophelia out with the vigilante stuff after he learned how unjust the justice system is about the sexual assault cases.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: The 100: Hakeldama(3.05)

                                              The 100: Hakeldama(3.05)Review
  • I like how the episode opens with Clarke and Lexa heading back to Clarke's people talking about how they bring them peace while the next shot is showing that Bellamy and the rest of Pike's followers have started a new war with grounders, I just like the contrast between the two scenes.
  • I liked that even though Bellamy is working with Pike that he was against Pike's idea of killing the wounded and that he was the one that convinced Pike to spare Indra.
  • I can't blame Lexa for declaring war on the Ark's people after they killed the army that was sent to protect them.
  • I like that Kane is having Octavia sneak out to meet with Indra in order to figure out why she signal him earlier since his every move is being watched.
  • I liked that when Pike starts talking about expanded their land and Bellamy realizes that it would go into a grounder village and then Pike implies that he thinks that they should wipe it out it's clear that Bellamy isn't on board with that plan.
  • I like that Bellamy tells Pike that he thinks that they went too far but I dislike that Pike seemed to be able to convince Bellamy that what they did was justified because their doing it all to save their people.
  • I liked that Kane tried to get through to Bellamy by telling him that he should know that starting a war isn't the way to keep their people alive.
  • I can't blame Lincoln for being offended when Bellamy mentioned that his people started a war with the hundred before the rest of the Ark's people even came down so there the same as the other clans but I did understand where Bellamy was coming there.
  • I felt bad for Raven after Abby didn't approve her for work and told Raven that she doesn't think she can fix her only reduce her pain.
  • I'm not sure if Jaha coming to ark's people to tell them about the City of Light is a good thing because I don't think the City of Light is a good thing.
  • I like that Murphy and Emori are working together robbing people and I like that it seems that they are together now.
  • I like that Abby and Kane find what Jaha is saying about the City of Light to be odd since what he is saying sounds insane.
  • I like that Pike doesn't buy into what Jaha is saying about the City of Light but I dislike that he's letting Jaha recruit anyone who is interested in going.
  • I like that Octavia tells Clarke that she doesn't know anything about what's going on with their people since she's been gone for so long.
  • I like that Clarke believes if she can get to Bellamy that she'll be able to get him to go against Pike.
  • I'm interested in what happened to Emori's brother and why Murphy thinks that going after him is something that will get them both killed.
  • I like that despite Bellamy siding with Pike it's clear that he doesn't agree with everything he's doing and I like that he still did want to protect Lincoln.
  • I don't like that Jaha and the hologram lady are setting their sights on Raven for recruiting her for the City of Light.
  • I really can't blame Octavia for being mad at Bellamy and I know that she was being sarcastic when she asked if Bellamy wasn't proud of slaughtering an army but I do believe that he's feeling much more ashamed than proud over that action.
  • When Bellamy keeps telling Octavia that he might not be able to protect her if she keeps acting like a grounder and siding with them it feels like he's doing what he's doing partly because he's afraid of what would happened if they stand against Pike.
  • I can't blame Bellamy for being mad at Clarke when she tells him that they need to talk and what they need to when she has been gone for months and after she rejected his attempt to rescue her and let her go back home with her people.
  • I like that Clarke tried to get it through Bellamy's head that what Pike is doing is starting  a war and that he is the one that is the problem here not the grounders but I also get why Bellamy can't see that since grounders have been attacking them from the beginning and they have never really stopped until a few days ago.
  • I liked that when Clarke told Bellamy that she needs him to be the guy that helped her pull the lever in Mount Weather that Bellamy lets her now that she left him and that is something that clearly hurt him.
  • I liked that Bellamy pointed out that when Clarke was in charge she let a bomb drop on a place where his sister was suppose to be and that she is now back with the people that forced them to kill everyone in Mount Weather and I like that Bellamy clearly feels like he failed all the people that helped them their and he does blame the grounders for leaving at the last minute.
  • I like that Clarke told Bellamy that she's sorry that she left him and that she thought their people would be okay because they had him.
  • I dislike that Bellamy handcuffed Clarke but I like that he said sorry before he did it.
  • I really do believe that Bellamy believes that he's trying to help Clarke by turning her into Pike but I'm glad that Octavia did help Clarke escape in the end.
  • I liked that when Murphy was captured that he didn't tell them were Emori was in order to protect her.
  • I like that Clarke convinces Lexa to find a way that is peaceful to settle things rather than starting another war.
  • I understand why Raven gave in and used the thing that gets you to the City of Light but I'm still sad that she did it.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.

TV Review: How to Get Away With Murder: Always Bet Black(3.03)

                      How to Get Away With Murder: Always Bet Black(3.03)Review
  • I like that Nate is worried about Frank doing something to Annalise and I like that he finds it concerning when Annalise tells him that she's got it handled.
  • I dislike how the president of the school keeps acting like she's on Annalise's side when she does nothing but backs the boards decisions and I like that Annalise dislikes her for this as well.
  • The case of the week that involves a man that his infamous for drugging call girls and having led to death of at least one girl which is caught on camera to be somewhat interesting since everyone already knows about the client and they want him to loose the case.
  • I like that Michaela volunteers to work on the case because she wants to work on a high profile case although she soon regrets it since the client is such a scumbag.
  • I liked that Annalise told the client that if he hit on Michaela should would crush his balls.
  • I liked that during the trial Michaela keep quoting what Annalise was saying because she was admiring the way that Annalise works.
  • I felt bad for Connor when after Annalise heard that him and Oliver broke up that she assumed he did something just like everyone else did in the last episode.
  • I like that Annalise won't let Michaela quit the case just because she's disgusted by her client because a big part of being a defense attorney is defending people like their client.
  • I liked that Annalise told Wes that Laurel went to visit her father because she asked her to do so.
  • I was surprised that Laurel's dad knew that she was looking for Frank before she even asked him for his help to find him.
  • I liked that Laurel got mad at her dad when he found out that he was listening to her calls and reading her emails.
  • I liked that Wes tried to look into Laurel's dad because he remembers her telling him that her dad is not a good person.
  • I find it funny that Connor refers to Aiden as both his and Michaela's ex but I'm a bit sad to see that Michaela is sad to see that Aiden is now engaged to another woman who seems more accomplished than her.
  • I liked that Laurel's dad had his conflict manager come in because he want him and Laurel to resolve the conflict that they have between them but it seem like that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
  • I was surprised to learn that Laurel was kidnapped when she was sixteen years old and that her father refused to pay her ransom which is something she understandably holds against him.
  • I think that the prosecution office being unwilling to give a plea deal to Annalise for any of her cases is something that will cause problems for Annalise in the future.
  • I was surprised to learn that Wes hates his birthday and now I want to know the reason behind this.
  • I felt bad for Laurel when it seemed like her dad was actually trying to make things right with her and give her the information that she wanted but instead was just trying to use her name for one of his most likely illegal businesses.
  • I liked that when the client told Annalise that he was being blackmailed by another lawyer and that Annalise told him only a hack would blackmail their own client.
  • I thought it was awful to learn that the client murder another young woman years ago because she called him names and I liked that Annalise pointe out to him that everyone gets called names and not everyone kills the people who do it.
  • I liked that Oliver tried to comfort Michaela about Aiden by telling her how happy him and the girl he's with now is lie because if they were truly happy they wouldn't post so many pictures of them acting happy.
  • I like that although Connor is of course still willing to spend time with Oliver he's not sure if they can actually be friends because Connor still very obviously wants to be more than that.
  • I liked that when Michaela reveals that she stole money from their client and that she's going to gamble with it that Connor, Asher and Oliver all became very nervous until she kept winning.
  • I like that Bonnie relates to the girl that their client win because she was a runaway which Bonnie easily could have been if her father hadn't been taken away and she can't stand the idea of girl's mother still holding out hope that her daughter will someday come home to her when they know she's dead.
  • I liked that Annalise brought up how no one knows what happened to Rebecca when Bonnie tells her she wants to go to the DA about the other girl their client killed.
  • I like that when Asher sees Oliver flirting with another guy that he goes to Connor because he thinks Connor should put a stop to it and Connor points out that their not together anymore and Oliver is very firm in his decision regardless of how much Connor dislikes it.
  • I liked that Wes texted Laurel to check if she was okay in the middle of the night.
  • I liked how when a guy that was flirting with Oliver earlier came over and flirted with Connor and told him that someone like Oliver wasn't his type that Connor told him off but I was sad that Oliver assumed that Connor was sabogating is attempts to move on.
  • I was worried when Michaela lost the client's money but I was glad that she was able to get the money back by pawning off her old engagement ring.
  • I understand why Laurel didn't want to let Frank's call possibly be traced after he told her that Annalise tried to kill him although I don't like that she did that.
  • I liked that Annalise was able to let it be known that there was a dead girl in the freezer and she used the fact that prosecution wouldn't make a plea deal with her as way to reveal the truth and get her client a good plea deal.
  • I liked that Annalise made her client take the plea deal when he didn't want to take one by scaring him.
  • I'm sad that Laurel isn't letting Annalise know about Frank's location even though she agreed to help her find him.
  • I liked that in flash forward that Bonnie got Oliver to where he had to be so that he could drop Annalise's now wiped phone.

Top 10 Kdramas I've Watched

1. City Hunter:This series is one that is a story of revenge that has a good amount of action and romance to it as well. This series is one that has a really good story behind it and good characters that make you invested in the story. I thought that this drama had good conflict between the characters that kept the story interesting through out it's run.
2. I Hear Your Voice: This series is one that is a bit hard to pin down because there are just so many aspects to it, this series is a noona romance, a legal drama and thriller with a supernatural element all at once and it feels like all the pieces of the story shouldn't fit as well together as they do. The characters are great and they all are able to go through character development through out the series as well as getting plenty of relationship development. Overall this series is one that you can't help but become emotionally invested in and that makes you forgive any of the flaws this series may have.
3. Healer: This series is an action adventure romance that has the male lead acting similarly to a superhero and a female lead working as a truth seeking reporter which are tropes we've seen before but this series makes them feel brand new. This series is one that has a very good emotional core to it with characters that you can't help but love.
4. Pinocchio: This series is another great one that deals with the morals and ethics of broadcast journalism and explores the very nature of what the truth is. This series is one that has great characters that go through emotional journeys as they have their world views challenged and the romance in the series is great as well.
5. W: Two Worlds: This one is a series that has a concept that really stands out with having a comic book character become self aware and having the female lead sucked into the comic book and end up falling in love with him. This series is one that is filled with twists and turns and it gives the audience plenty to talk about as we explore what makes a human, human.
6. Heartless City: This dark crime story that deals with criminals and undercover cops just trying to survive is one that is extremely well made and endlessly intriguing to watch with all the characters being so very flawed. This show is one that stands out both because of it's darker tone and it's darker but still gorgeous look that the series has to it.
7. Queen In Hyun's Man: This series is a really sweet time travel romance that is sure to make you swoon with two leads that are completely lovable and it has the right balance of fluff and angst to it.
8. Dream High: This series is a teen drama about students at a preforming arts school working their hardest to achieve their dreams and make it in the K-pop industry. The characters in this series are all ones that I can't help but to root for and I really loved seeing them grow through out the series and I always found myself caring about them.
9. School 2013: This series is a drama that is simply about the lives of students and teachers of one class at one school and although that premise doesn't sound all that gripping the series itself is because the characters are and you find yourself completely invested in their story as the series goes on.
10. Witch's Romance: This series is about the romance between 39 year old cold hearted ultra successful reporter and a sweet 25 year old who works has a man who does any kind of part time job someone might need done, the romance in this series is unconventional but also completely heartwarming.

TV Review: Shadowhunters: The Mortal Cup(1.01)

                                     Shadowhunters: The Mortal Cup(1.01)Review
  • I really like the opening scene with Alec, Izzy and Jace tracking the shape shifting demon because they show us that something supernatural is going on with normal people not being able to see them, the demon their following shifting it's appearance when it runs into someone and even shows us some runes, I also really like the song that is playing during that scene. I think this scene does a really good job of showing us a little bit about the shows rules and mythology.
  • I liked that since the first scene set up right away that normal people can't see shadowhunters that when Clary could see Jace it was actually surprising to me that she could see him just like it was surprising for her.
  • I liked that the show took us back eight hours and that we got to see what Clary's normal life was with seeing her interview and get into art school, her meeting up with her best friend Simon and her close relationship with her mom, it let us get to know her and showed the contrast to what her life will soon become.
  • I really love the art work that show has for Clary because it is really nice art which makes her getting into art school really believable for me.
  • I loved that when Clary tricked Simon into thinking she didn't get into art school that he said he'd make them pay by writing scathing email to them because it's sweet that he wants to stand up for her but it's also kind of lame that he'd do it by writing an email.
  • I like that Clary and Simon are working on creating a graphic novel together because that's such a nerdy thing to do but it also shows how much time the two spend together which helps establish their friendship fairly quickly.
  • I like how Clary kind of teases Simon for not knowing that Maureen has a crush on him while he makes it clear to the audience but not Clary that he has a crush on her.
  • I was very confused when I first watched this scene about how Clary's biscotti became a drawing of a biscotti, honestly I didn't figure out what happened until I watched episode six.
  • I like that the show hinted at Luke being a werewolf right away but for some reason I remember it taking awhile for me to figure out what he was although it was pretty obvious from the start.
  • I still don't understand why someone who apparently wasn't a vampire were going around draining regular people of their blood because I feel like it was never truly explained but maybe I'm wrong about that.
  • I liked that Luke's boss told him that he should just marry Jocelyn since he already acts like her husband anyway.
  • I liked that Clary and Dot have such a close relationship with each other but I also like that it was clear that Dot was hiding things from her just like her mom is.
  • I liked that both Jocelyn and Dot found out that Clary got into art school from Simon's twitter.
  • I like that Jocelyn tries to tell Clary about being a shadowhunter on her birthday by giving her stele and trying to explain it to her what it does and what their family history actually is. I like that it was made clear that Clary was starting remember she was a shadowhunter on some level because she was drawing runes without even knowing what they were.
  • I thought that the flashback to ten years earlier was really poorly place in the episode but at the same time I can't think of a better place to put it in so I don't feel like it's all that fair to complain about it's placement.
  • I liked that it was explained that the reason Clary couldn't see the supernatural things for so long was because she had her memories taken away.
  • I liked that it was clear that Magnus didn't really agree with Jocelyn's plan to wipe Clary's memories in order to keep her save because one day she would discover what she really is.
  • I liked that it was clear that Jocelyn knew it was important that she tells Clary the truth about what she is but at the same time she was having a hard time doing it which is why she let Clary go off with Simon without telling her the truth.
  • I really like how Simon gave Clary a piggyback ride out of her place, I just really adore the friendship between this two.
  • I find it a bit strange that Clary doesn't find it strange that her mom has no relatives what so ever and I liked that Maureen does find it strange and rightfully suspects that Jocelyn is hiding something from Clary.
  • I like that Izzy decided to dress up with a platinum wig for their mission with a shape shifting demon which leaves Alec confused as to why she would bother and Jace complimenting her on her choice of wig.
  • I like that in hindsight it's clear that from the beginning that Izzy was trying to get Alec to be true to himself and that he didn't want to talk to her about any of that.
  • I honestly don't understand why they couldn't just wait to get approval for the mission like Alec said that they should and considering that the mission wasn't all that successful I'm wondering if it would saved them from some problems in the future.
  • I liked that it was hinted at from the start that Izzy was good at forensics when she said that if they got her a sample of the blood she would be able to tell what was so special about it.
  • I like how Simon and Maureen like to change their band's name at the drop of the hat for no real reason.
  • I liked that when Jace was shocked by Clary being able to see him and asks if she has the sight that she thinks that he's trying to hit on her and she's really unimpressed by him.
  • I like that Simon and Maureen who both can't see Jace are concerned for Clary when she was talking to Jace and with how she kept insisting that she was actually their when neither of them saw anyone.
  • I like that Clary follows Jace into the club because she wants to prove to Simon and Maureen that she's not crazy and I like that Simon reminds her that her fake ID sucks as she does so.
  • I like that Simon and Maureen go off to go get drinks despite Simon being so sure that their fake IDs aren't good enough to get them drinks.
  • I like that when Magnus sees the circle members in his club that he kicks them out right away and I like how when he was threaten them with his magic and one the guys said they've endured worse that Magnus pointed out that they inflicted worse.
  • Even though it screwed up the mission I liked that when Clary thought Jace was going to kill someone that she jumps in and pushes her out of the way because she couldn't let someone get murdered.
  • I quite like the scene where Jace, Izzy and Alec had to kill all the demons in the room which out numbered them by quite a lot while this wasn't the best fight scene in the show it does established from the start that they all know how to fight pretty well together.
  • I liked that Jace actually pushes Clary out of the way of the demon after she saved the demon and I liked that he asked her at least one more time during the fight if she was okay.
  • I like that they had Clary pick up the seraph blade and that it lit up for her which means that she's a shadowhunter and I like that Jace clear sees this.
  • I liked that when Jace was fighting the demons after he lost his seraph blade that he yelled to Alec and then Alec tossed him, his blade without a second thought and that once Jace got his blade back he tossed it back to Alec.
  • I like that it was made clear that the circle members saw Clary at the club and followed her home because it explains why they found them now.
  • I like that Clary is really freaked out about the demon killing she just witness and doesn't understand and that she goes back home and tells her mom all about what she saw.
  • I like that Jocelyn starts to tell Clary the truth about who she really is although there isn't much time and Clary is already freaking out so Clary doesn't really understand much of what her mom is trying to tell her.
  • I like that it's clear that Jocelyn and Dot have prepared for the possibility of the circle finding them and that they had a plan for what to do in this situation.
  • I like that Jocelyn makes sure to tell Clary that she loves her more than anything before she forces Clary to go find Luke who she tells Clary is the only person that she can trust to help them right now.
  • I like that it's made clear to the audience right away that Valentine is alive and that he's someone who everyone else assumed was dead.
  • I like that Jocelyn doesn't take the coma potion until it's clear that she can't escape from the circle members.
  • I feel bad for Clary when she hears Luke telling the circle members that he doesn't care about her and her mom because after hearing that she now believes that she doesn't have anyone that she can trust anymore.
  • I like that Valentine was impressed by Jocelyn's ability hide from him for eighteen years and that he kills one of his followers for insulting her.
  • I felt sad for Clary when she returned home to find the place in ruins and that her mom was nowhere to be found.
  • I like that Clary jabbed the shape shifter demon with her stele when it started to attack her but sadly she wasn't able to fight him off for long but luckily Jace showed up and killed the demon before it killed her.
  • I liked how gentle Jace was with Clary when he was examining the bite that the demon gave her and I like that he answers her questions very directly even his answers make no sense to her I'm glad that someone is actually giving her answers to the many questions she has.
  • I liked that Izzy was just waiting for Clary to wake up and I like how she just expected Clary to understand that they saved her and she should be grateful to them.
  • I like that Alec does find it weird that Clary appeared because new shadowhunters just don't appear while Jace and Izzy are all too happy to ignore the strangeness of the situation and instead want to learn more about Clary.
  • I liked that after Izzy tells Alec that she loves him that Alec stops trying to point how Clary shouldn't be here so that he can tell Izzy that he loves her too.
  • I like that Izzy tries to ask Alec if the reason that he doesn't want Clary here is because Jace likes her and that Alec tells her that he's suspicious of Clary since she appeared out of nowhere and she ruined their mission.
  • I liked that after it becomes clear to Jace that Clary really doesn't know anything that he tries to explain the whole shadow world in the simplest way possible but of course that is still confusing for Clary because how could it not be.
  • I like that Clary makes it clear from the start that what she cares about most is finding and saving her mom.
  • I liked that Simon tracked Clary down and was concerned to find out that she was in what appeared to be an abandoned church and that she was undressed there, I like that he asks her if she has a meth problem that she didn't tell him about.
  • I liked that Jace seemed oddly proud of himself for the drawing a rune on Clary's neck.
  • I like that when Clary questions the clothes that Izzy left for her that Jace tells her that Izzy is very comfortable with her body.
  • I like that when Jace is fighting the circle member and Clary is reacting to it that Simon is very confused as to what she is seeing.
  • I like that when Jace first makes himself visible to Simon that Simon asks Clary if he is her meth dealer.
  • I like that Clary actually was given good reason by both Jace and Simon on why they should trust them with Jace being a shadowhunter like Clary who can help her find her mother and keep her safe and Simon being her best friend who she known forever and she knows that she can trust him but she doesn't know much of anything about Jace since she just met him.
