Shadowhunters - City of Glass

Setting up next week's series finale, "City of Glass" features a last-ditch plan by Jace (Dominic Sherwood), Alec (Matthew Daddario), and Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) to break Clary (Katherine McNamara) from Jonathan's (Luke Baines) sway. While successful in breaking the toxic bond between the siblings, the Shadowhunters are too late to stop Jonathan from retrieving the Morning Star Sword and using it to create a rift allowing demons to enter the city. While evil Clary is a bit more fun than the regular version, its good to see the character back in control of her faculties heading into the show's conclusion.

As we've seen many times over the series, "City of Glass" once again teases strong romantic feelings between Isabelle and Simon (Alberto Rosende). Can we please get these two together, already? And, if not, can you give me her number? Speaking of romance, a large chunk of the episode centers around Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) reclaiming his powers, discovering the truth of why Alec pushed him away, and taking a pair of actions (stranding his father in limbo and leaving the Shadowhunters to close the portal Jonathan ripped open) that leave the character's future in doubt. It seems along Clary confronting Jonathan one last time, the Shadowhunters will also need to find Magnus and bring him home.
