Everyone loves a good mystery, but the mystery of who Lilith’s little pet is, was driving me crazy! So far in, Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, we’ve seen it go out, possess people, and bring people back to her. Which of course, she slices their necks and has them bleeding onto some weird altar. It is so crazy! Yet, nothing could have prepared me for who the “Owl”, really is.
Jace is certain that this mystery demon is, Jonathan. He tries to convince Clary of this and tells her about the dreams he’s been having. Well, at least the part about Jonathan being in his dreams. Wonder when he’ll mention the part about killing her? Clary is very concerned about Jace and isn’t sure whether he is right or not. Honestly, I am not sure if I would have believed him because he was acting a little crazy. Thankfully, Izzy was willing to miss her family dinner, in order to help find the Owl. Because of her, why find out whether it’s Jonathan or not.
Speaking of family dinner, Alec and Magnus are whipping up a lovely dinner for Maryse Ligthwood on, “What Lies Beneath”. Great scene with Malec being domestic and cooking dinner together, well, sort of. Alec was so confident in his cooking skills, but turns out, he sucks! Good thing Magnus can just wave his hands and fix it all up. It is always interesting when Maryse is around and the last time, she wasn’t very warm to Magnus. She was full of smiles and laughter for dinner, but as usual, there was a specific reason for her impromptu visit. Apparantly, her past was coming back to bite her in the butt. The Clave has decided to reopen the investigation on Circle members and she is going to be brand her as a traitor, as well as, strip her of her runes. No worries, though, daddy was able to make a deal with them and is safe from any serious consequence. Lucky bastard.
Let’s get back to our three lovely Shadowhunters, who are looking rather lovely at the party. It doesn’t take long for Izzy and Clary to hear screaming. They race to the sounds and find that the Owl had succeeded in getting another person possessed. Anyone seen Jace? I feel like he is missing. Something very interesting happens when Izzy flings her whip at the Owl. Nothing. That’s right, nothing happens to the Owl when her whip snags him. Which means, this can’t be Jonathan because as a demon, he would have been in pain. And still, no Jace.
By this point in the show, my gut was telling me that Jace disappearing was no coincident. We saw him surrounded by mirrors, fighting Jonathan and then, Jonathan disappears. Jace stands alone. Weird. Then, while the girls were going against the Owl, there is still no site of Jace. Clary and Izzy still haven’t seen Jace by the end of the episode. And here we are, at the very end of, “What Lies Beneath”. Were you ready for this? Because I sure as heck wasn’t! Lilith is behind her alter and draining the blood of her little minions, while the Owl is standing in front of her. Have you figured it out yet? And the winner of being Lilith’s freaky pet is…. Jace! Whoa! She obviously has him under some sort of mind control, but how are they going to sever that link? Not to mention, he is helping her bring Jonathan back. Talk about a massive twist.
There’s nothing like family drama and the love of your life working for a very powerful demon, to get your blood pumping. “What Lies Beneath”, was an exceptional episode and I felt that it really took things to a whole new level. What will happen when Jace’s friends and family find out what he has been doing? Lilith is obviously nurturing Jonathan back to life and it’s only a matter of time before he is alive. Why can’t things every be easy? Will Jace and Clary be able to withstand the trials that they are about to face? I don’t know about you, but I look forward to seeing what the future holds for our Shadowhunters and Downworlders. Make sure you tune in next Tuesday at 8/7c, for a brand new episode of, Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments. Lilith’s not done with Jace, yet!
