Shadowhunters - You Are Not Your Own

While Simon (Alberto Rosende) is given the shock of learning that Clary (Katherine McNamara) and Jace (Dominic Sherwood) aren't brother and sister, and Alec (Matthew Daddario) is surprised to learn that Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) and Valentine (Alan Van Sprang) have switched bodies, the biggest bombshell is dropped on Jace who discovers his true paternity. Most of "You Are Not Your Own" centers around the body switch that almost every character is unaware of, or fails to believe. The torture at the hands of the Claive while in Valentine's body isn't likely to help Magnus' relationship with any of the Shadowhunters. Thing get basically set back to normal by the end of the episode, but will have to see how much fallout the temporary switch makes on Magnus and Valentine respectively.

Teased at times over the course of the series Simon and Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) have developed a nice friendship (with foreshadowing of more down the line?). Clary is still loyal to her daywalking vampire boyfriend, but it's the new character of Sebastian (Will Tudor) who helps push her into rediscovering who she is and what she can do. It seems Miss Fray has no end of suitors. Despite warnings, Simon isn't hiding his newfound love of sunlight, and given his move to antagonize Raphael (David Castro) I'm betting this too will have repercussions for everyone involved.
