02x20 - Beside Still Water

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.

CLARY: Previously, on Shadowhunters...

I knew there was something off about Sebastian.

JACE: The only thing that matters right now is taking Jonathan and Valentine out.

Your Highness, I'm here on business.

You don't want things to end well, do you?

I want change.

You want war.

They'll hold the Institute at bay while I do what needs to be done.

I will kill them all.

♪ This is the hunt ♪

- What's going on?

- Maia's gone missing.

- What?

- She disappeared from the Hunter's Moon.

And I think your bestie the Seelie Queen's responsible.

What would the Queen want with Maia?

She has this crazy obsession with me because of the whole Daylighter thing.

And then she invited me to live in her court, and I said thanks but no thanks, and then she...

she threatened to hurt the people I care about.

She also offered shelter to every Downworlder.

That shelter comes with a price.

Loyalty to the Queen.

Maia wouldn't go for that.

And she wouldn't desert her pack.

Maybe she found a lead on Valentine and is off hunting him down.

- Without telling me?

- Come on, Magnus!

We're not making this up.

She's got Maia.

My warlocks are on the roof, holding up the wards to keep Valentine in the city.

I have to go help them.

But the next time I see the Queen, I will inquire.

(CELLO MUSIC)

Luke, if something happens to Maia because of me...

I'm not gonna let that happen.

QUEEN: Surely you must be starving.

Please. Eat.

I'll pass on the lamb chops and get a ride back to Brooklyn.

Now!

That's not very polite.

Why am I even here?!

If you don't feel like eating, you don't have to.

We can just chat.

Tell me about the Daylighter.

Simon?

We don't have to play pretend.

You know him well.

He's quite fond of you.

As you are of him.

And how do you know that?

My eyes and ears are everywhere.

But there are certain things only a girlfriend would know.

The Downworld is on the brink of annihilation if Valentine gets to that lake.

As much as I would love to talk to you about Simon, I really need to get back.

I assure you, dear, you are perfectly safe here.

I'm not talking about me.

I'm talking about my pack.

My friends.

Patience.

Right... patience isn't really my thing.

AH!

(GRUNTING)

Take her to the wander-woods.

- IZZY: Anything new?

- We tried tracking him together, like we did with Jonathan, but for some reason it didn't work.

Magnus's wards are up, Valentine must still be in the city.

(SIGHING)

Thank the Angel for Magnus and the warlocks.

They didn't raise the wards for us.

Teams are out doing block by block sweeps throughout the city.

We'll find him.

Hey... you OK?

I thought I'd be relieved when Jonathan was finally dead.

But...

actually, I feel worse.

I get it.

He was your brother.

(ALARMS BLARING)

Aerial sensors.

Is it Valentine?

No.

Could be some kind of wraith demon.

(SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC)

(ROARING)

- JACE: Where is it?

- ALEC: It should be right on top of us.

ALEC!

(ROARING)

I've never seen a demon like that.

(ROARING)

On your six!

(ROARING)

(INAUDIBLE SPEAKING)

IZZY: Can you see it?

(ROARING)

CLARY: What the hell is it waiting for?

ALEC: It's coming around for another pass.

(ROARING)

IZZY: ALEC!

(ROARING)

Relax.

I got this.

(ROARING)

Nice.

(HONKING)

(SNARLING)

HEY!

He threw something at my car!

(SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC)

ALEC: Over there!

(SNARLING)

CLARY: They're splitting up!

(EXCLAMATIONS OF SURPRISE)

(ETHEREAL MUSIC)

(MALE SEELIE): Your Majesty, look who we found.

I assumed you would return, but why is the wolf here?

- He wasn't invited.

- Where is she?

- Safe and sound.

- Let her go...

Now.

What's the hurry?

She's perfectly fine.

Take off your coat.

Stay awhile.

Stay awhile?

Have you forgotten that Valentine is still on the loose?

Every wolf in the city is looking for him, which is why I'm struggling to understand why you're wasting time kidnapping werewolves when you should be out trying to find him yourself.

Unless you already found him.

Is that what happened?

You made a deal with Valentine?

He wanted to get past the wards.

So you gave him passage to Idris?

I wanted to protect my people, even those outside the safety of my realm.

We Seelies understand the power of negotiation.

Your idea of negotiation is putting the rest of the Downworld at risk.

Which is just fine by you, isn't it?

That way, you can rule it all by yourself.

(CHUCKLING)

You flatter me, Lucian.

I'm not just telling my wolves.

I'm gonna tell the entire Downworld.

And when they find out how you betrayed

- each and every one of us...

- Go ahead, I have nothing to hide.

In the meantime, I would like to have a conversation with the Daylighter.

I need to find Maia.

(TENSE MUSIC)

At least four demons are still unaccounted for.

Notify all available personnel.

What's wrong?

Is everything OK?

CLARY: That was Luke.

Valentine's on his way to Idris.

- What?

- How?

He made a deal with the Seelie Queen.

Luke's warned all the other Downworld leaders.

Damn Valentine.

If Valentine gets to that lake...

He won't.

Malachi's army is armed and waiting for him.

We need to warn him.

Who knows how many Circle Members will be there?

If we lower the wards, these demons can get out.

Spread beyond the city.

Maybe we don't have to lower them.

Maybe my portal rune can pierce the wards.

We can't all go.

The demons need to be dealt with.

Clary and I'll go.

You two stay here, slay the beasts.

Fine.

Be careful.

Likewise.

And when am I ever not careful?

(METALLIC RINGING)

(RUSHING AIR)

(ELECTRONIC MUSIC)

Where's the army?

We're still a hike away from Lake Lyn.

(SIGHING)

I guess my navigation's still off.

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

We need to hurry.

We can't let Valentine reach the lake.

He nearly ran me over!

- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

- Come on, come on!

ALEC: Report that to the others and get back to me.

IZZY: There's over of them now, with numbers increasing.

And they haven't attacked once.

- What are they doing?

- I don't know, but demons don't usually come into our realm to sight-see.

We need to find the rift where they're coming from and seal it.

We'll need a warlock for that.

Not just any warlock.

The most powerful one in New York.

Magnus is not interested in helping the Shadowhunters.

- He said so himself.

- He still also thinks the Seelie Queen is on their side.

He needs to know about the deal she made with Valentine.

Well, not from me.

He doesn't want anything to do with me.

Don't make this personal, Alec.

I'm not!

If you don't ask him, I will.

Izzy, wait.

(KNOCKING)

Magnus.

What do you want, Shadowhunter?

Is it about the demons?

There's something you need to know...

- about the Queen.

- Well, if you've come to tell me that she made a deal with Valentine, I already know.

Wait!

Izzy has located the rift that the demons are coming from.

Oh, and you want me to seal it.

What a surprise.

We need a warlock to seal one this severe.

- Duh.

- The demons don't discriminate between Downworlder, Shadowhunter, mundane.

They kill them all.

I'll seal the rift.

But not because of you or the Shadowhunters.

Because it'll save lives.

(PIANO MUSIC)

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

MALE SHADOWHUNTER: We need you on this side, here.

(INDISTINCT SPEAKING)

FEMALE SHADOWHUNTER: On my way.

Consul Malachi.

Jace Herondale of the New York Institute.

Clary Fairchild.

I know who you are.

Valentine is on his way to Lake Lyn.

- He has the sword and the cup.

- Yes, I'm quite aware of Valentine's progress.

We need to get to the water.

Now.

I'm afraid that's not gonna happen.

JACE: You're a Circle member!

You can't!

- Let me go!

- JACE: GET OFF ME!

MAIA?

(ECHOING)

(INDISTINCT WHISPERING)

MAIA?

MAIA?!

Whoa.

Whoa.

You are not allowed in the Wander Woods.

(GRUNTING)

Where is she?

Tell me where she is!

I do not know precisely.

The woods are vast.

Not to mention dangerous for a...

MAIA!

MALE SHADOWHUNTER: Reinforce the seals...

(SIGHING)

Do you have any idea how many speeches I've heard Malachi give?

How many times I've heard him...

preach loyalty to Clave above all else under the Angel?

And all along he's...

he's been working with our greatest enemy.

How does the Consul, the leader of the entire Clave, end up a Circle member?

Valentine threatened to wipe out any Shadowhunters who opposed him.

Malachi's just trying to save his own ass.

And sit back while everything around him is destroyed.

How could you side with him?

There is only one side.

The side of the angels.

Valentine is only doing what the Clave has been trying to accomplish for centuries: eradicate demons.

No.

No!

The angels would never be in favor of killing millions of innocent Downworlders along with demons.

When Raziel created the first Shadowhunter, there was no such thing as Downworlders.

But over the centuries, disgusting half-breeds emerged.

Warlocks, vampires, Seelies, werewolves.

They banded together, grew more powerful.

Finally they will be destroyed.

And so will you.

(DRAMATIC MUSIC)

IZZY: I just spoke with Imogen.

Despite her requests, there have been no troop movements in and out of Alicante since.

When she went to Malachi to see what the holdup was, she was told he'd left suddenly.

So she believes Consul Malachi is actually a spy for Valentine?

(SIGHING)

There is no other explanation.

ALEC: Jace and Clary are in Lake Lyn with Valentine, who knows how many Circle Members and no military support.

We need to go help them.

I can't leave when the city is under assault.

What have you got?

We've identified the demons as a rare sub-species of Edomei.

- Edomei?

- You're familiar with them?

They're from Edom.

Tenacious little devils.

- So we've noticed.

- And remarkably intelligent, capable of creating carnage in any number of ways.

Yet they haven't attacked once.

What are they waiting for?

They work in hordes.

Perhaps they're increasing their numbers to reach a critical mass.

All the more reason to get this rift closed as soon as possible.

Their entry-point appears to be here, near Croton Point.

How long will this take?

Jace and Clary are alone in enemy territory.

Not long.

We need to move.

(RUSHING AIR)

ALEC: This is definitely the right place.

What is that?

Blood.

IZZY: Where did all the demons go?

MAGNUS: I'm not sure.

They just don't normally fly off into the sunset.

Well, let's not stick around until they make an appearance.

The amount of energy required to seal a rift from Edom is substantial.

It's not just a flick of the wrist.

(SIGHING)

You gonna be OK?

I'm the High Warlock of Brooklyn.

(RUSHING AIR)

(ROARING)

(GROANING)

IZZY!

GO!

I'm all right!

- (ROARING)

- Cover me!

(DRAMATIC MUSIC)

(ROARING)

(ROARING)

MAGNUS!

MAGNUS!

MAGNUS!

(GRUNTING)

Magnus!

Magnus.

You can't get rid of me that easily.

MAIA!

Maia, where the hell are you?

- Luke!

- Maia?

(BREATHING HEAVILY)

- You alright?!

- They took me out here!

I've just felt like I've been wandering around here forever...

SIMON: Maia!

You came too.

Simon is quite valiant and chivalrous, unlike any of the other Night Children I've ever known.

You're all free to leave.

My servant will escort you out of the Court to safety.

What's the catch?

What makes you think there is one?

Luke, let's just go.

Nothing here ever comes for free.

You never do anything out of the kindness of your heart.

Hell, you were gonna sell the entire Downworld...

Let's just get out of here while we can!

She's a smart one.

You should listen to her.

Before I change my mind.

Come on.

(ETHEREAL MUSIC)

It's gonna be OK.

How?

Your father won't approve...

but he'll understand your deaths were a necessary sacrifice.

For mass genocide?

You're the Consul of the Clave.

How can you let this happen?

Cleanse the world of demons?

How can I not?

- Proceed!

- JACE: NO!

Are you OK?!

You're OK?

We have to go.

Any word from Jace and Clary?

No.

But they should be arriving at Lake Lyn by now.

Strange.

The aerial sensors show no demonic activity.

Yeah.

There's nothing on the ground either.

It's like the Edomei completely disappeared.

MAGNUS: I never heard of that.

Once they pass through the rift, the demons are here to stay until they're properly banished.

Then where the hell are they?

(FAST-PACED MUSIC)

CLARY: Are we too late?

No.

No, if he'd raised the Angel, we'd know it.

We beat him here.

We can stop him.

I had to.

Your stele.

It has been a thousand years since I was last summoned to this place.

Why do you summon me now, Nephilim?

My Lord Raziel, the great men and women in the lineage of Shadowhunters, which you have created here, have failed in their mission to rid this world of demon scum.

I see you are impatient.

What is it you ask of me?

The immediate death of all evil-blooded creatures, demon and Downworlder alike, as well as the disloyal Shadowhunters...

who protect them.

The destruction of the souled creatures of the Downworld, and of our own Nephilim?

That is not Heaven's wish.

What?

But thou who spills thy blood thou shalt compel from me an action.

You know my name.

Concern yourself not with what I know.

But rather, what can be.

If you have a desire, ask me now.

And be wise.

I will grant but one.

Jace...

Bring Jace back.

Please!

(RUSHING AIR)

Jace?

Jace?

Are you OK?

Oh my God.

What happened?

You're alive.

Valentine raised the Angel.

I used the wish to bring you back.

You could have had anything else in the world...

...and you chose me.

I don't want anything else in the world.

Bringing people back...

there's always a consequence.

Not this time.

This is a miracle.

OK?

It's... a gift.

Granted by the Angel.

(CELLO MUSIC)

I can't...

I can't think straight.

Well, I can't do anything without thinking of you.

Magnus, I...

I don't think I can live without you.

Why didn't you tell him what happened?

Some things are just better left unsaid.

Is something wrong?

No.

No!

I mean, look.

You know, we did it.

We won.

Just for now, can you...

can you keep this between us?

Yeah.

Of course.

- Ollie, this is a private party...

- We need to talk.
