Shadowhunters - The Descent Into Hell Isn't Easy

Picking up where the show's Pilot episode left off, "The Descent Into Hell Isn't Easy" introduces Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara) and her nerdy pal Simon (Alberto Rosende) to the secret world of the Shadowhunters (Dominic Sherwood, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario). Learning more about the world which her mother (Maxim Roy) kept from her, and about the war between the Shadowhunters and the Circle, and suffering another loss of a good friend, Clara embarks on a risky undertaking to the City of Bones where the warlocks known as the Silent Brothers may have the ability to restore the young woman's memories.

Spent mostly to better flesh out the characters and give the Shadowhunters more time on-screen, "The Descent Into Hell Isn't Easy" is a slight improvement over the opening episode to the series (mainly for Emeraude Toubia's expanded role as Isabelle). Ending with Clara not learning about the Mortal Cup, her lost memories, or her mother, but with a reveal concerning her true father, the young girl's life continues to get increasingly complicated.
