My name is Clary and I'm a Shadowhunter,
born to protect mankind from demons.
A never-ending battle against evil,
but I know who I can count on.
Simon, my oldest friend. A vampire.
Magnus, a warlock from Brooklyn.
Luke, a werewolf pack leader and New York City cop,
and Jace, Izzy and Alec,
three of the bravest Shadowhunters alive.
Alone, we're strong.
Together, we are unstoppable.
Previously on Shadowhunters...
ALEC: There's a greater demon on the loose.
My name is Sebastian.
RAPHAEL: You're a daylighter.
There's a name for it?
RAPHAEL: I can be your friend.
But not if you insist on keeping things from me.
I told you everything I know.
I hope so.
VALENTINE: If you were smart, you'll summon Azazel with your warlock friend and use me as a bait.
Now a present for you, my dear Valentine.
I am not Valentine, I am Magnus Bane!
Valentine has escaped!
Looking for a way to switch yourself back?
You did this to me!
You trapped me inside of a filthy warlock!
I wanted to give you incentive.
You want freedom as a Shadowhunter?
Give me the Mortal Cup.
You'll have to switch me back first.
The Cup is in a place where any demon-blooded intruder will be killed on sight.
I have great faith in your ability to defy the odds.
I don't bargain with demons.
Give me the cup... ...or you'll die a filthy warlock.

That is the best thing to wake up to, ever.
SIMON: So tell me...
SIMON: ...do you really like the bed better than the canoe?
I much prefer waking up with my hair smelling like algae.
I knew that.
I love that smell.
It reminds me of the time that Luke took us out on the lake.
SIMON CHUCKLING: You fell in.
You were so mad!
Well, I was mad because you stood up and tipped us over!
Nah, that doesn't sound like me.
I don't remember that.
♪ Waiting for the light ♪
It's an update on Azazel...
Tell your brother you're busy!
Everything OK? ...
it's just that Jace...
...has the worst timing.
You can say that again.
It's just the kayaks, OK?
Yeah, I know, I just...
I always forget.
- (DOOR CREAKING)
- Damn Raphael!
Looks like Azazel's headed south.
We just recovered four dead mundanes with his signature M.O.
To catch a greater demon you summoned to the Institute, defying all protocol and common sense?
Don't put this all on Jace.
I had a part in this, too.
JACE: Look, if you want to bench your best fighter with a greater demon on the loose, I'm happy to oblige.
First we vanquish Azazel.
Then I'll decide what to do with you.
I'll catch up.
- (CARS HONKING)
- ISABELLE: Good morning.
SEBASTIAN: Did you sleep well?
ISABELLE SIGHING: Thank you for giving up your bed.
How are you feeling?
The strongest I've been in a long time.
You know... ...
not many people will take in a stranger and be so generous.
you're welcome to stay as long as you need.
That's very kind...
but I need to get back to the Institute.
You should come with me.
Uh... thanks, but, um...
You know, I've ...I've kind of gotten used to being on my own.
I'd gotten used to vampire venom.
Sometimes change is good.
ALEC: Azazel's attacks go as far south as the meat-packing district.
And then the trail goes cold.
JACE: It's no use just tracking the dead bodies.
With his ability to dematerialize, he could be anywhere.
ISABELLE: Maybe we can help.
Izzy! We've been so worried about you.
Where have you been?
Looking for Azazel.
This is Sebastian Verlac, from the London Institute.
When the demon came after me, Sebastian saved my life.
Oh, I simply lent a hand.
Sebastian's an expert on all things Azazel.
When I studied abroad at the Paris Institute, I specialized in greater demons.
Thanks for saving my sister.
Yeah, thank you.
The great warrior in the flesh.
Your reputation precedes you.
As does yours.
You must be Clary.
Don't hold it against me.
Well, we don't choose our parents.
JACE: So tell us about Azazel.
How do we take him down?
The only way to banish him is to puncture his demonic core.
In corporeal form, it's between the T and T vertebrae, but it's not that simple.
The core is about the size of a pea.
Oh, so the entry point's right below his sternum?
If I can get close enough, I can kill him.
You wouldn't have enough velocity, and even if you did, the defeat's only temporary.
The nasty buggers always find a way to break out of their realm and come back.
Thank you for the intel.
We'll take it from here.
If I can, I'd like to help.
We appreciate that, but you don't have clearance to go on mission.
Not this Institute.
Alec, you can't be serious.
JACE: Hey, Alec.
He clearly knows more than us about Azazel.
We could use all the help we could get.
SEBASTIAN: Now, as far as tracking is concerned, we should really think about...
We have a very capable warlock for that.
You do what you want.
I'm gonna work with Magnus.
ISABELLE: Alec, stop!
What's your problem?
Sebastian Verlac shows up out of the blue and saves you?
What are you trying to say?
Alec, you did everything you could to help me.
And I love you for that.
But don't treat Sebastian like the enemy just because he was able to help me.
You hid the Cup in this... other realm, and now you don't know how to portal there?
I'm not a goddamn warlock.
I don't know what I'm doing.
If you want to create a portal, let's get a real one.
So you can use 'em to switch you back and escape this mess?
I don't think so.
And once I give you the Cup?
I'll reward your kindness by delivering you into a body that you deserve.
Not one that's not locked up in a Shadowhunter's prison.
Get rid of him.
Look, I know you had a rough night, but, um...
I need your help tracking Azazel.
I wish I could help, but I'm busy with a client.
Are you OK?
You sound strange.
I had a rough night.
Look, I need to get back to my client.
If you need a warlock, call Dorothea.
ALEC: Magnus, you there?
What's going on?
Well, it's just...
you were acting strange on the phone just now.
I told you.
It's just, uh...
You've never refused to help me when I need it, and I just... ...
talk to me.
Did I not tell you to get rid of him?
I got this!
Are you OK?
MAGNUS BREATHING HEAVILY: Fine.
Why'd you tell me to stop?
I was afraid something terrible would happen.
Something that couldn't be undone.
- You wanted to see us?
I told you I would decide what was next for you once Azazel was vanquished, so here we are.
You can do whatever you want with me, but leave Clary out of this.
Well, that's not possible.
The Clave wants to have you both tested to get a greater understanding of your unique angel-blood abilities.
No, we'll pass on being lab rats.
I want to do this.
I haven't been able to use my runes since we summoned Azazel.
I wanna understand why.
Thank you, Ms.
Your willingness to put your own comfort aside for the greater good is to be commended.
You would do well to follow her example.
I'm not a follower.
I'll do the testing on my own.
When do we start?
Clary, you don't know the Clave like I do.
First they'll just want you doing circus tricks.
The next thing you know, you'll be monitored - .
I'll do whatever it takes.
Jace, it's OK if you don't want to do this, but... drawing those runes...
for the first time, I felt like there was a reason I became a Shadowhunter.
I need to get them back.
I guess it's your lucky day.
What took you so long?
After all the abuse Valentine put me through...
DOT SIGHING: I'm still not strong enough to create portals.
You know, you really should let go of your anger.
I'd hate to see something bad happen to you because of it.
The way you said that, you sounded just like...
MAGNUS SCOFFING: Look, I need your help.
Last night I got blasted by a greater demon.
Oh my god.
Magnus, no wonder you seem a bit off.
The worst part is, it's like it short-circuited my memory.
I can't access my magic.
I've never heard of such a thing.
I need you to teach me.
- (HIGH-PITCHED RINGING)
I got your message about Raphael.
Are you OK?
Yeah, you know.
Living the Daylighter dream.
You got a tan.
- It does?
- (ISABELLE chuckling)
Back to Raphael.
How can I help?
I heard you guys were kind of seeing each other, and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me out, doing that thing you're really good at, you know, making a man bend to your every will.
- But look, if you don't want to get involved.
- No sweat.
I get it.
- No, no.
it's not that.
when I got injured by that demon, Aldertree gave me some Yin-Fen to regain my strength.
But things got out of control.
The reason why I was seeing Raphael...
Izzy, what is it?
I became addicted to vampire venom.
I had no idea.
- Are you...
you know, with my mom...
it's a lot of ups and downs.
And I'm guessing there's not really a...
-Step program at the Institute for Shadowhunters.
I know a lot of really good groups...
Simon, I'm not a mundane.
I don't do groups.
But I do fix Downworlder problems.
- Come on.
I know that staying clean means staying away from Raphael.
ISABELLE SIGHING: Who said anything about going near Raphael?
I know you're listening!
I'm not Valentine!
I'm Magnus Bane!
(DOOR CRASHING OPEN)
Alexander, thank God you're here.
You have to listen to me...
No, you listen to me!
This sick game of yours is over!
It's not a game.
I know it sounds crazy, but I'm not Valentine.
I am Magnus.
Azazel switched us with a curse.
Unum ad Unum.
You gave me that Omamori charm that I carry with me every day.
It was after our night in Tokyo.
We were at the Palace Hotel.
And we kissed on the terrace.
And then you...
- And then you took me in...
How do you know these things?
it's me, Alexander.
The day of Valentine's massacre, you told me that you loved me.
So if you love me, please.
Please, you have to believe me.
You think if she ever smiled, her face would crack?
Don't be so hard on her.
Can't be easy being a Herondale.
I know it must be tough to be like Shadowhunter royalty.
All that power.
From what Luke said, she was a very warm person before her son died.
Oh, I have no doubt.

So you've created new runes in the past, and now suddenly, they don't work anymore.
What are you saying, she's lying?
She is Valentine's daughter.
We're done for today.
I am Valentine's daughter, but I am not my father.
I know your son died while serving the Circle.
Valentine also took the person I loved more than anything.
Your friend's right.
We're done for today.
Hola, Rosa. Cómo estás?
I brought you your favorite.
- Wait, so, um... ...we're giving a kind old woman tulips?
Rosa, meet my friend, Simon.
Simon, meet Rosa Santiago.
SIMON LAUGHING: OK.
Um, I'm all for creative anti-bullying tactics.
But please don't tell me we're here to kidnap Raphael's grandmother.
OK, first of all, she's not his grandmother.
She's his sister.
And no one is kidnapping anyone, OK?
Who are you again?
I am Raphael's friend, Isabelle.
We came to visit you last week for Bingo night.
Raphael plays Bingo with her?
And he makes tamales for her every Sunday.
Such an attractive couple.
How long you two been married?
- SIMON LAUGHING: No.
- No, we're just friends.
He's a catch.
OK, Romeo, give me your cell phone.
It's time to send Raphael a message that if he can get to you, you can get to Rosa.
Oh, see, um...
my heart kinda goes out to the guy now, you know?
Save your sweet side for someone who cares.
- Sit down.
Um, Rosa, can I take a picture with you?
(ELEVATOR BELL RINGS)
Jace, we need to talk.
Heard you banished Azazel.
Um, this is gonna sound crazy.
I was just with Valentine, and he says that he's Magnus, that Azazel switched them with some kind of a demonic curse.
- I know.
It's hard to believe, but it's just that...
he knew things that only Magnus could know.
- Like, intimate details.
Well, he could have had a warlock steal your memories.
No, that's not possible.
I would have noticed.
Well, just remember that this is Valentine.
He's always steps ahead of us.
He's always planning his next move.
Alec, just trust me.
You don't wanna fall for his lies.
Is that you?
Please, they're torturing me!
I can't take any more of this.
I know the feeling.
Let's get you out of here.
Valentine is here!
It's no use.
I've cloaked myself so no one can see me.
You have no idea what you're doing.
After your capture, the Clave hired me to create wards to block Downworlder powers from being used in this cellblock.
Not only can't you break me out, but your cloaking spell won't work here.
We'll see about that.
What the hell?
(ELEVATOR BELL RINGS)
They can see you.
Bane, what are you doing here?
I was brought in to check on the wards you had me install.
After Azazel's escape, there was a concern that his demonic energy may have weakened them.
Brought in on whose authority?
Are you questioning my integrity?
After everything I've done for the Clave?
Your security services are hereby terminated.
- (MUFFLED BANGING)
- (INAUDIBLE TALKING)
Where is the Mortal Cup?
You have to believe me.
I am Magnus Bane.
Somebody used the Unum ad Unum spell on us.
I don't know.
This has gone far enough.
You're never going to tell me where the Mortal Cup is, are you?
I don't know.
Prepare him for execution.
Your rune ability still causing you trouble?
Yeah, it's, um...
it's kind of the hot topic around here.
You know all this stuff about Azazel.
I was wondering...
my powers stopped working when I tried to use them against him.
Is it possible he...
somehow took them?
Stealing angelic power is something that even a greater demon can't do.
So much for simple answers.
Look, it, um...
It might be simpler than you think.
We are trained so fiercely to believe that...
emotions cloud our judgment.
I believe that emotions give us power.
And when we suppress them, we are all the weaker for it.
Perhaps that's the problem.
My mother just died, but...
I feel the pain of that every day.
couldn't shut that out if I tried.
I'm sorry to hear that.
And I heard Jace just found out that he's not Valentine's son.
What does that have to do with anything?
Well, think about it.
your father's never really been your father.
you've just lost your mother.
And the brother that you thought you had isn't your brother.
Right before my runes stopped working, that's when he told me.
That's what you're blocking out.
The pain of losing the one last person you thought was family.
You need to let that in, Clary.
Believe me, I have.
- (SEAGULLS CALLING)
- SIMON: Kung-Pao Special for the best anti-bullying expert ever.
But, you know, it's...
kind of hard to celebrate with this place looking like a ghost town.
How are things at the Institute?
everyone's trying to recover.
- Alec is paranoid about pretty much everyone, and, uh...
Jace, you know.
He's still spinning.
About the Soul Sword attack?
That, and finding out he's not really Valentine's son.
Wait, that means.....
that means Jace isn't Clary's brother.
I thought you knew.
It would have been a lot easier to wait 'til nightfall to kill you.
But you come near my sister, you pay now.
Back off, Raphael!
You gave your friend some really bad advice, Isabelle.
Keep her back.
Feeling a little weak from withdrawal?
I can fix that if you like...
Any last words?
You're lucky your sister doesn't know who you are.
Cause if she did, she'd hate you.
RAPHAEL: Say goodbye, Simon!
SIMON: Bring it on!
(DOOR CREAKING OPEN)
Anyone else want to take a shot?
Don't be shy!
How can you do that?
He's a Daylighter.
Damn right I am.
We're done here.
I said let's go!
That's what I'm talking about.
Before you celebrate, remember...
you might be a Daylighter, but you're not invincible.
Be careful, Simon.
ALEC: Inquisitor Herondale.
I heard you put a request in for Valentine's execution.
Unfortunately the Clave has denied that request.
They don't understand.
Valentine will never tell us where the Mortal Cup is.
It's time to take matters into my own hands.
Thank you so much for coming.
Yeah, of course.
Uh, so, what's this surprise you want me to help plan for Alec?
I hope there's liquor involved.
- What's up?
It's just nice being like this.
It's a shame that it has to end.
- (RUSHING AIR)
(ELEVATOR BELL RINGS)
You're going to execute Valentine right here in the Institute?
I disabled the security system.
That's not protocol, that's...
Lightwood, either help or go.
The choice is yours.
(DOOR CREAKING OPEN)
Put him in the chair.
Alexander, what's happening?
Please don't do this.
Don't do this.
Don't do this.
Alexander, what are you doing?
Please, don't do this!
My son is dead because of you.
And it's been years, and the pain just never goes away.
Guard the entrance.
MAGNUS: Hello, Alec.
JACE: Alec, I'm so sorry.
You were right.
It's not Valentine!
What are you talking about?
MAGNUS: You've taken my light... ...
your darkness will come.
What did you just say?
I'm repeating your words back to you.
MAGNUS: You remember the fire message you sent to me the night Stephen died.
The good news is, in exchange for my freedom, you can save your pure angel-blooded warrior.
I don't make deals with the devil.
You chose the wrong bait.
For all she cares, you could slaughter me right now.
MAGNUS: I don't think so.
Imogen wouldn't dare slaughter her grandson.
JACE: After all your lies, you expect me to believe I'm a Herondale?
Stephen Herondale was your father...
and his wife Céline was your mother.
You ever think about poor Céline?
Nine months pregnant when she took her own life.
Her dead body ravaged by werewolves, her unborn son eaten alive.
Or was he?
The Clave took so much from me.
So I took something in return.
MAGNUS: But I'm sure you want further proof.
HERONDALE: My family ring.
Where did you get that?
Off Céline's very hand.
You have one hour to meet my demands, or your grandson dies.
I came alone.
Per your demand.
Of course you have.
I don't know why you felt the need to bring him here.
We need all the help we can get.
Wards are up.
You said Valentine wouldn't have this kind of warlock power.
As always, he defies expectations.
Look, we're gonna need you.
You used Jace to get me here.
Now let him go.
- (RUSHING AIR)
The first person who leaves here is me.
I can't make it work.
Yes, you can.
MAGNUS: You can do the honours.
Tell me what it feels like to have your entire family ripped away from you.
- That's enough.
Trust me on this, OK?
Look, your mother?
She's never coming back.
Jace is not your brother.
You feel like you're all alone in this world, don't you?
- Stop it!
Feel it, Clary.
You try to stall...
with a flick of my finger, Jace dies.
Reddite animas nostras in earum corpora.
Your mother is never coming back.
Your father will never love you.
The only reason he wanted you was to use you.
Sebastian, this isn't working.
You wanted a brother so badly, because then at least you'd have someone to share in the pain.
- Stop it!
- I can't stop it, Clary.
That empty feeling that eats away at your soul and makes you feel like you want to die, day after day after day, it never stops.
Now take that pain and use it.
(GRUNTING FROM BEHIND THE DOOR)
You're taking the wrong side, Clarissa.
Magnus, I am so sorry... ...
for everything you had to go through.
That agony rune... ...
made me relive memories I've spent...
centuries trying to forget.
Magnus, tell me how to fix this.
Just tell me what to do.
ISABELLE: So should I call you Daylighter?
I think, um, Your Lordship Daylighter.
I like that best.
The meetings you were telling me about...
the ones your mom goes to?
I'll send you all the info.
Hey, don't worry about Jace not being Clary's brother.
You're a catch.
I'm sorry if I was too hard on you tonight.
I hope you know I never wanted to do anything - to purposefully hurt you...
- You helped me with my runes.
Actually, I don't know how to thank you.
Well, how would you feel about dinner?
Oh God, I was too forward, wasn't I?
- I was.
I have a boyfriend.
Of course you do.
Of course you do, how could you not?
- Um... ...
but thank you.

- Long day.
Why didn't you tell me?
I found out Jace isn't your brother.
I was thinking maybe, um, maybe the reason you didn't tell me is 'cause you guys used to have a thing.
- So now that he's not your brother...
The reason I didn't tell you is I...
I didn't want you to worry and spin.
Instead, all I've made you do is worry and spin.
I'm so sorry.
So we're good?
I am not that easy to get rid of.
Now I know where that bold defiance of yours comes from.
You're just like your father.
retrieved this from Magnus's apartment.
It belongs to you now.
You've had a lot taken away from you, Jace.
But that's all over now.
You come from a line of great and powerful Shadowhunters, from a family that has been revered by generations, and feared... ...
by those who oppose all that is good and just.
This ring signifies that.
This is your birthright.
Now, my boy.
You are about to find out what it means to be a Herondale.
