Shadowhunters - Heavenly Fire

Hoping to discover just what the Clave is doing the the Downworlders, and find a mystical artifact to break the connection between Clary (Katherine McNamara) and Jonathan (Luke Baines), Simon (Alberto Rosende) agrees to Isabelle's (Emeraude Toubia) plan of sending the vampire into the secret prison as a prisoner to discover the truth. Along the way he'll meet a new friend (Sydney Meyer), come across an old one (David Castro), and discover how Victor Aldertree (Nick Sagar) plans to save the world from Downworlders by turning them into mundanes. Foiling Aldertree's scheme and saving a portion of his concoction for Clary, thanks in large part to some inside help, once again the show teases us with the possibility of throwing Isabelle (who looks great in that dress by the way) and Simon together (Isamon? Simabelle?). C'mon, isn't it time to throw these wacky kids together? While talking to the imprisoned Jonathan, Clary will make a disturbing discovery about how her brother is connected to her childhood nightmares (as the show continues to quietly build on Clary's need of family while her friends look only at her brother's destruction and eventual death). Although she seems ready to move forward with the plan to use the Heavenly Fire to break her brother's hold on her, when push comes to shove will she let the Shadowhunters kill him? The soap opera of Alec (Matthew Daddario) and Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) continues as the Shadowhunter prepares a perfect night for a proposal only to discover just how distraught Magnus has become after losing his magic (again). As with Clary, the question for Alec is just how far will he be willing to go to try and set things right?
