Shadowhunters - Major Arcana

While Luke (Isaiah Mustafa) deals with an Internal Affairs investigation and Simon (Alberto Rosende) freaks out over the increasing evidence suggesting he is becoming a vampire, Clary (Katherine McNamara) and the Shadowhunters attempt to sneak into the police station and retrieve an item from Luke's confiscated belongings which they believe will lead them to the Mortal Cup.

Marking the halfway point of the series' first season, "Major Arcana" is a turning point for several characters. Clary is able to retrieve the Mortal Cup and gives into her feelings for Jace (Dominic Sherwood), effects of both of which will no doubt continue to effect the other Shadowhunters over the remainder of the season. While less central to the overall story, Simon's mania is actually more compelling that the bungled police heist and battle with shapeshifters Clary and the others spend their time with. The episode marks a major turning point for him as well, but we'll have to wait and see just what that means for his relationship with his best friend.
