TV Review: Shadowhunters: A Door Into the Dark(2.02)

                              Shadowhunters: A Door Into the Dark(2.02)Review
  • I find it a bit disturbing how Valentine has been right about how the Clave is very good at doing their jobs which is why that vampire den was able to survive as long as it did.
  • I like that Jace is clinging to the law now that he is with Valentine because while he hasn't been all that respectful of the law in the past back then he was sure of what the right thing to do was while now he isn't sure of anything anymore.
  • I dislike how Aldtree seems to let Lydia be the head of the institute when something goes wrong simply because he doesn't want to deal with the fact that something could go wrong on his watch.
  • I liked that when Clary and Jocelyn were fighting that Simon tried to keep the peace between the two of them.
  • I like that Clary is mad at her mom for trying to kill Jace and for still keeping things from her even though she had just promised to not do that anymore. I like that Clary doesn't buy Jocelyn's explanation that Jace is evil because he has demon blood because Clary knows good downworlders.
  • I really don't get how Jocelyn believed her child is evil because he made some flowers shrivel up because he was a baby with uncontrollable powers back then who had no idea what he was doing.
  • I dislike how Aldtree tries to get Simon to find out about how that vampire den came to be and threatened him to find out about it and report back to him.
  • I like that Clary tried to check with Alec was okay but I really think she should've known that Alec would lash out at her because he's upset, already dislikes her most of the time and her mom did just try to kill Jace.
  • I think that Alec was right when he pointed out that he has known Jace for way longer than Clary has and that he really doesn't know anything about her so he doesn't really have a whole lot of reasons to trust her but I think that he was way too hard on Clary when he told her that she didn't belong here with them and she never will, I also like that Izzy tried to get Alec to stop but it didn't really help.
  • I think it makes a lot of sense that Valentine is taking people who have already proven themselves as fighters to become shadowhunters.
  • I feel bad for Clary when she wasn't allowed to help out with the mission because she is too inexperienced and too close to the situation and I felt even worse for her when after she tried to join Izzy and Alec that Alec once again told her that she didn't have a place with them.
  • I felt bad for Clary when she told Izzy that Alec's right she doesn't really belong here and she's not really a shadowhunter like they are and I like that Izzy told her that wasn't true and that no matter what happens she'll always belong with her.
  • I really dislike how much Luke's pack is against Simon staying near their places because it's so clear he has no where else to go and he hasn't hurt them in anyway so I just don't get why they dislike him so much.
  • I understand why Raphael is mad that Simon accidently got him in trouble with Clave because Simon implied that the higher ups among the vampires would know about the den and that the Clave blames him now while Camille is the one who is actually responsible for it. I dislike that Raphael is making Simon find Camille but I understand why he thinks that Simon should be the one to bring her in.
  • I like that when Jace saw another young shadowhunter on Valentine's ship that he assumed that he wasn't there willingly and that when it became apparent that he believed in Valentine it's clear that Jace just can't understand why he would choose to be here.
  • I like that Jace refuses to join Valentine's hunt for innocent downworlders because he knows that he's wrong about them.
  • I liked that when some guy tries to flirt with Izzy that Alec tells him that it's funny he thinks he has a chance with her and that he was willing to fight that guy to defend Izzy's honor but I liked it even more when Izzy fought the guy herself and totally kicked his ass while Alec just watched her looking really proud her.
  • I liked how Simon went to Magnus for help with tracking down Camille since he's the only person Simon knows that knows Camille as well as Raphael does and I like that Magnus points out that he knows her better than Raphael does.
  • I like that Magnus tells Simon that trying to find Camille is a bad idea and that one of Camille's favorite things to do is to hold grudges.
  • I find it creepy how Valentine's followers are so devoted to him that if they are captured they will kill themselves rather than answer questions about him.
  • I like that when Clary left the institute she went back to the art school she was accepted into because she wanted to feel normal again.
  • I like that Luke told Jocelyn that she should've been honest with Clary in the first place and that she should've been honest with him as well.
  • I like how Jocelyn tells Luke that she needs him to talk to Clary for her because she believes that she's more likely to listen to him than she is to her.
  • I liked that when Magnus is at Camille's place that he keeps finding things that are his and collecting them to take back home with him.
  • I like that when Magnus tells Simon to deal with Camille on his own that Simon then sarcastically says why would you need a powerful warlock when you have a scrappy nerd from Brooklyn, I just find the line to be quite funny.
  • I like that Magnus told Simon that he shouldn't be so afraid because as a vampire he's a lot stronger than he thinks he is.
  • I like how Clary tells her mom and Luke how she doesn't really feel like she belongs anywhere anymore because she's not a mundane and she isn't really a shadowhunter either.
  • I was very happy to see that Dot was still alive but I'm sad that she has been forced to work with Valentine.
  • I find it funny how Alec suggests to Izzy that they just take a ship out and see if they run into anything as a way to find Valentine.
  • I like that when Jocelyn comes up with a way to find Jace that Alec doesn't trust her at first because he doesn't really have a reason to but agrees to it because they don't really have a better way at tracking Jace.
  • I liked that when Clary first appears that Jace doesn't trust that it's really her and that she has to tell him a memory that only she would have in order to prove it's really her.
  • I like that Jace only agreed to go on the hunt with Valentine in order to makes sure that Clary didn't go on it in his place.
  • I liked that when Izzy finds out that Alec could die from the using the stone to track Jace that she tried to convince him not do because in her mind it's not worth risking his life but Alec believes that he can't live without Jace so he doesn't mind risking his life to find him.
  • I like that Simon was finally able to use his encanto against a fire breathing snake that Magnus thinks of as his baby.
  • I like that Clary was able to convince Dot to help her and Jace escape from Valentine while using their past relationship to connect with her.
  • I like that Magnus told Simon that since he was alone when he had to figure out the downworld that he vowed to himself that he would help anyone who was in a similar position and that he tells Simon that he'll try and help him out.
  • I was glad that Clary was able to get through to Jace and that the two of them escape thanks to Dot helping them.
  • I was very worried about Alec when he went too deep when trying to track Jace and is now convulsing because of it.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.
