03x06 - A Window Into an Empty Room

CLARY: Previously on Shadowhunters...

Now it's time to meet my sire.

You can meet him when it's time.

Simon?

Hello?

"If anything will keep me safe, "it's this picture, All my love, George." I'm looking for something that could...

make a person fall out of love.

You must add one last ingredient: a tiny sliver of your soul.

- (WHIMPERING)

- (SNARLING)

To true love...

Now, nothing will come between us.

♪ My regrets ♪

♪ Are a chain around my neck ♪

♪ You know ♪

♪ It's torturous ♪

♪ House of burdens that I can't let go ♪

What do you think?

Matte or glossy?

(MUFFLED WHIMPERING)

Glossy it is.

Nothing wrong with a little sparkle.

It is a special occasion...

♪ Oh, oh, oh, oh ♪

♪ Oh baby, don't go ♪

(WHIMPERING)

(SIGHING)

SIMON: You sure you wanna do this?

KYLE: We have no choice.

The mark on your head, it activates whenever someone tries to attack you, right?

As far as we know, yeah.

So then, it's only logical if you evade the attack, you'd be fine.

Well, I'm not sure logic really applies here.

Hey!

(EXHALING HEAVILY)

You're pretty quick.

I mean, I am a vampire.

But you're not bad yourself, for like, a...

surfer werewolf.

You know, some of the best athletes in the world - are surfers.

- Not in New Jersey.

Well, I was born on the Gold Coast, remember?

Is that in Australia?

You know, you haven't really mentioned that.

You know, actually, um...

My girlfriend grew up near the Jersey Shore too.

Oh, yeah?

Yeah.

Maia's actually gonna be in town tomorrow.

We should get lunch.

I mean, she's been dying to meet you.

We could go see a movie, we could kind of...

(GRUNTING)

(GROANING)

Are you OK?

Yeah.

All right, all right.

We're done.

You think?

Come on.

(GRUNTING)

So...

lunch.

There's this really great diner that she likes...

Yeah.

That sounds awesome, but I can't.

I've gotta catch a train back to Long Island.

I owe the Praetor a progress report.

Oh, that's too bad.

I'll bring you back a doggie bag.

(CHUCKLING)

Hi, Simon.

Gah!

Hey, you, uh...

(GIGGLING)

I don't think we've met.

Are you one of Kyle's friends?

Simon...

It's me.

(GIGGLING)

(HEIDI GASPING)

Oh, my God...

Heidi.

(GIGGLING)

I thought you were dead.

Yeah...

not anymore.

Thanks to you, Sire.

How is that even possible?

We both got a little carried away that night.

That douche Quinn might've killed me, but I died with your blood on my lips.

Wait.

So, wait.

How...

How did you come back?

Raphael dug me up, but...

you're the one that gave me life, Simon.

And now we're bonded...

forever.

Huh...

OK.

Look, Heidi, I...

I hope you understand, I can barely manage my own life right now, so I'm...

nowhere near capable of being anyone's sire.

So, if Raphael dug you up, maybe you should...

you should talk to him.

Are you kidding me?

You're acting like you have nothing to do with this.

No, no.

That's not what I'm saying.

Your blood runs through my veins!

You don't get to turn your back on me like I'm some stranger!

Uh...

I know this is, um...

It's a lot to process.

But...

we belong together, Simon.

You'll see.

♪ We're coming ♪

♪ After you ♪

♪ This is the hunt ♪

♪ This is the hunt ♪

Mmm!

This is delicious.

I haven't been this enamoured of French toast since...

Well, since Julia Child made me petit dejeuner.

Good.

Maybe you should save the spatula I used for your little box.

Ahem.

Alexander...

...if my mementos are still an issue for you, perhaps we should talk about it.

No.

It's my issue.

I just got so swept up that I...

(SIGHING)

I never stopped to think about the future.

We fell in love.

There was nothing else to think about.

I can't stomach the idea that one day, I'm gonna be old and feeble, and becoming this...

burden to you.

Look, there's no universe where you would ever be a burden.

You say that now.

(DISTANT SIREN BLARING)

OK, maybe the reason why you're having such a hard time processing this is because this is your first relationship.

Right, because the whole immortality thing, that's no big deal.

This is all just because you're the only guy I've ever been with.

No, no, no.

All I'm saying is every relationship is complicated.

Perhaps ours wouldn't seem so daunting if you would have been with at least one person before me.

Oh.

So...

what, I should go sow my oats?

You're putting words in my mouth, that's not what...

And you're twisting this into something that it isn't.

I'm not a child, Magnus.

Then stop acting like one!

I lost my appetite.

(SIGHING)

IZZY: So you just walked out?

Well, what else was I supposed to do?

- What's gonna happen now?

- I don't know!

Look, do you have any actual advice or are you just going to interrogate me?

(BOTH SIGHING)

I wish I knew what to tell you, but...

I think the reason why I find Downworlders appealing is because those issues prevent things from ever getting too serious.

Oh.

Well, that's comforting.

But what you and Magnus have is...

is real.

If anyone can make it work, it's you two.

(SIGHING)

WOMAN: I'm just here to see my children!

Is that Mom?

UNDERHILL: Show some respect!

GUARD: This woman's been excommunicated by the Clave.

She's not allowed to enter.

This woman is Alec Lightwood's mother.

- Allowances can be made.

- It's fine.

Hey!

As long as I'm in charge, Maryse Lightwood is allowed in the New York Institute.

Understood?

(SOFT MUSIC)

(SIGHING)

I'm sorry, I should have called ahead.

No, it's...

it's no problem.

Mom, did the...

The de-runing, did it hurt?

Not at all.

The adjustment's actually been easier than I expected.

Have you found a place to live yet?

You can stay here if you'd like.

We could make that happen.

I meant what I said.

You're always welcome.

Thank you, but I've actually found a place.

All I want right now is to spend some time with my wonderful children.

Speaking of which...

where is Jace?

I've been through all the Institute archives, and there's no record of a greater demon that matches this one.

I don't know what else to do.

[Ithuriel said the Owl has a master.] This has to be who it is, and...

it is powerful enough to kill an angel.

I have to let everyone know.

You do that, and it unravels everything about Raziel and the wish.

I don't care if the Clave locks me up, Luke.

[Well, I do.] And what about Jace?

He carried that same lie.

He'll be in trouble just like you.

And the last thing he needs is for his treatment to be interrupted.

I have another job for you.

Whatever you need, my Queen.

The blood sacrifice is almost complete.

There are disciples.

One more and Jonathan will be ready.

Now, go find me my last virtuous mundane.

I will.

Rise.

I know you're in there...

...Jace Herondale.

I know you're suffering.

When I'm done using you, you will return to find your friends dead and your world on fire, burning at the hands of the son you so callously took from me.

And when you scream and beg for death...

I will smile.

Now, kiss me.

You will need your energy.

(OMINOUS MUSIC)

Why did Raphael dig her up?

A member of his clan murdered her, so I guess he was trying to give her her life back.

Little did he know she'd become my own personal stalker.

Do they make Downworld restraining orders?

What?

Simon...

when you were first turned, you had a built-in support system.

By the way this girl's reacting, it doesn't sound like she has anybody.

It's hard when the person that made you abandons you.

Trust me, I know.

You're right...

I can't just walk away from this.

Who are you texting?

Raphael.

He's part of this mess.

The least he could do is give me some sire tips.

MARYSE: Your father says Max is doing much better. That makes me so happy.

- Yeah.

- (PHONE BEEPING)

Uh oh.

Who are you talking to?

Nobody.

Mom, we need to talk.

About your new beau?

About you.

Your excommunication.

I told you, Isabelle.

I'm OK.

Why don't I believe you?

Mama, we said no more secrets.

Remember?

You don't have to hide how you feel.

(SIGHING)

I feel so lost.

Like I don't know who I am anymore.

(SIGHING)

(SOFT MUSIC)

Look at me...

It's like they were never even there.

(SIGHING)

You're still you.

Still strong, and brave and beautiful.

But no longer a Shadowhunter.

I don't know what I'm supposed to do now.

(SIGHING)

You're not alone.

You have four kids that love you more than anything.

In fact...

Alec and I were talking.

We want to take you out tonight.

I don't think that's a good idea.

You said yourself you wanted to spend more time with us, so let's go out.

As a family.

All right.

I'll go.

If I get to meet him.

It's only been one date.

It's not even serious.

I know my daughter.

Anyone who makes you smile like that...

...must be someone special.

Bring him tonight.

So this Owl is just a puppet, possessing mundanes on behalf of some super scary demon?

Something like that.

All of the Owl's targets vanished without a trace after killing their loved ones.

If we can find even one of them, they might lead us to the Owl.

(PHONE BUZZING)

(BEEP)

Hey, Sam.

You got my message?

Yeah, I know.

I'm sorry.

OK.

Sam, wait.

(BEEP)

Is she all right?

Let's just say she's not a happy camper.

Yeah.

I get it.

Just make sure that she knows that she's the most important thing in your life.

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

(CAR HONKING)

(EERIE MUSIC)

Hey.

What are you doing here?

I thought you were at the Silent City.

Yeah, I was.

I completed my treatment.

- Already?

- It's crazy, right?

The Silent Brothers work fast, but I'm good.

Great.

I was just on my way to the Institute to tell you all the good news.

Yeah.

What are you doing here?

Oh, um...

- Taking a walk.

- "Taking a walk"?

Since when do you take walks?

Just...

clearing my head.

Right.

Hey, look.

Forget about me.

I'm glad you're feeling better.

- Yeah.

- My Mom's back.

She'll be happy to see you.

Oh, great!

IZZY: You look better. I'm finally back to myself.

Whatever the Silent Brothers did, it was a success.

So you're finally cleared for duty?

Yes, I am.

Jace!

It worked?

It's so good to have you back.

It's good to be back.

A lot happened while you were gone.

We need to talk, but not here.

We can talk later.

I want to get caught up in the Ops Center.

Jace?

Yeah?

Are you sure you're OK?

I'm great.

We'll talk later, OK?

Raphael?

Are you in there?

(SIMON'S MUSIC PLAYING)

♪ Got a drop in my throat ♪

♪ Chill in my lungs ♪

Raphael?

♪ See a light and a flare ♪

♪ Nobody's there ♪

♪ They don't hear a sound ♪

Simon...

About last night...

I realize that wasn't the way to handle things, and I'd...

really like to make it up to you.

Come, sit.

I heard your music online and it's really good.

You're really talented.

Here, have a drink.

Where is Raphael?

He texted me...

Uh...

yeah.

Sorry...

I catfished you, but I had a feeling that you wouldn't come if you knew it was me, so...

So where is Raphael?

Ugh.

Who cares?

I mean, he did bring you back from the dead.

Yeah, to see if I'd be a Daylighter like you.

What?

He locked me in a laundry room and then drugged me, and then burnt me with a light over and over to see if I had your powers.

Newsflash: I...

didn't.

But what kept me going was the thought of you, my sire.

You know, when we were at the bleeder den and you fed on me, you were...

so different.

The way that you hesitated, I could tell that...

you didn't want to hurt me.

No one does that.

No one cares.

No mundane, no vampire, no...

Well, not even my own family.

Heidi, I'm...

I'm so sorry you had to go through all of that...

and...

for my part in it, I hope you'll forgive me.

There's nothing to forgive.

I love being a vampire.

It's like a dream come true.

Oh.

Uh...

Well...

cool.

If you ever need anything, I'm here for you.

Oh!

No!

No, that's...

that's...

See, that's not what I meant.

I have a girlfriend.

It's...

that's...

- Oh.

- Yeah.

Hmm.

Yeah, of course you do.

You know, a guy like you...

Yeah.

What's her name?

I actually have to go now.

But, um...

Like I said, if you need anything, advice, I'm here.

So just, um...

Just call me, OK?

OK.

(SIGHING)

It all happened so fast.

I wish I had gotten a better look at it.

I've seen a lot of demons in my day, but...

never this.

The last thing I remember, it touched its claw to my chest.

I still don't know why it didn't kill me.

Powerful demons often leave an imprint, traces of their unique energy.

If I can tap into the spot where it made contact with you, perhaps we can get a better sense of what we're dealing with.

(SNAP)

(GRUNTING)

What is it?

This energy signature, it's...

the same as the one that corrupted the ley lines.

It seems that we're chasing the same demon.

(GUSTING AIR)

Wha...

What are you doing?

I'm sending a message to an old contact.

He has access to information far beyond my resources.

Hopefully, he's willing to help us...

identify the beast.

I should tell Jace.

Biscuit?

Is everything OK?

I tried to tell Jace about all of this earlier, but he was acting...

strange.

Strange how?

(SIGHING)

Maybe I'm being paranoid, but he didn't exactly seem happy to see me.

I tried to hug him and it just, it felt...

odd.

Relationships...

They can be exasperating, can't they?

Yeah.

Sometimes, it's best...

just to be patient.

Jace has been through a lot.

He probably just needs some time.

(GUSTING AIR)

(SIGHING)

Ah.

We're in luck.

Brother Zachariah says he's willing to meet.

Tonight.

OK.

Great.

Thanks, Kyle.

I appreciate it.

Kyle wants us to leave the apartment.

And find somewhere we can lay low 'til he gets back.

No, I can't.

You know I have work tonight.

Can't you get your shift covered?

No.

And you can tell that Praetor of yours I'm not going into hiding just ¢cause some vamp chick can't take a hint.

You didn't...

You didn't see the look on her face.

When I was at her place, I...

I smelled fresh blood.

A lot of it.

You think she killed a mundane?

I don't know.

But...

I was stupid enough to tell her I have a girlfriend.

What if she comes after you?

Let her.

She'll be sorry she did.

MARYSE: The fact that you had the courage to get help... I am so proud of you.

I'm just glad I'm back to normal.

Yeah.

How about we order some food?

That is a great idea.

I'm starving.

I hope I'm not embarrassing you.

What are you talking about?

You're our mother.

We stand by you.

Always.

Thank you.

If there is a silver lining in all of this, it's getting to be with the three of you again.

So...

what are you gonna do now?

I need to find a job.

I'm looking forward to it, actually.

Where's Magnus?

I'm surprised he's not here yet.

It is happy hour.

I left him a message.

I'm sure he'll be here soon.

And Isabelle, where's your friend?

What friend?

Friend?

Wait, you have a new boyfriend?

Why am I the last one to hear about this?

Oh, no.

Alec, I haven't heard about this one either.

OK.

He's not my boyfriend.

We've only been on one date.

He's a doctor.

Well, what is he?

Is he a werewolf?

A warlock?

He's a mundane.

Seriously?

Well, that's new.

I'm practically a mundane at this point.

You all have to promise to behave yourselves.

- Us?

- What?

MARYSE: Oh, Isabelle.

He is handsome.

Mom...

Can't wait to meet him.

So what kind of doctor are you?

Pediatric surgeon.

- You work with children.

- Yeah, well, kids love to break their arms, running at a coffee table.

And...

Not everybody heals as fast as Isabelle.

Yeah...

The magic of makeup.

Anyway, Isabelle has told me about the family business.

What exactly did she tell you?

Is the jewelry thing a secret?

Oh...

jewelry.

She told you we're jewelers?

We prefer to think of ourselves as artists.

(PHONE RINGING)

_ What is it?

Uh...

nothing.

I just need a refill.

Excuse me.

Can I get a refill?

Make it a double.

Tough day at the office?

You could say that.

I don't usually...

Oh, hey, hey.

No judgement here.

I mean...

If anyone deserves a drink, it's gotta be the head of the Institute, right?

I can't even begin to imagine the kind of stress that would bring.

Yeah.

So, uh...

Where's your better half?

Busy.

Oh.

That's too bad.

You know what?

I'll just, uh...

I'll leave you to you and your drink.

You have a...

you have a good rest of your night, OK?

You too.

At ease, soldier.

Don't you want to say hi to your friends?

Heidi caught me off guard twice.

I'm not letting that happen again.

Simon...

I told you, I can handle it.

I don't doubt that, but I'm not leaving your side.

OK.

Well, you should try blinking every once in a while.

You're starting to freak people out.

Thank you.

Who's up for some dessert?


- Oh, I am!

- Sure, yeah.

Maryse Lightwood at the Hunter's Moon.

Lucian...

We should get another round.

Obviously, you heard what happened.

I did.

I'm sorry.

Poetic justice, isn't it?

Considering how shamefully I acted when you were excommunicated.

I didn't come here to rub it in.

Believe me, I know firsthand how hard it is.

Reaching for your stele, and realizing it's not there.

I know it's daunting, but I promise, it's not all bad.

And if you need help adjusting, I'm around.

I appreciate that.

It is a new beginning.

A chance for me to be a better person.

There you go.

What?

Nothing.

I just...

What?

I just haven't seen you let your hair down, literally, since the Accords Ball in Idris.

That was years ago.

Was that years ago?

Yeah.

Well, you look just as lovely now as you did then.

So...

where is your friend?

He should be here.

(INSECTS CHIRPING)

Magnus...

Are you OK?

Yeah.

I've been so focused on my own problems but...

I can tell something's going on.

Alec and I had a fight.

A bad one.

We both said some things we didn't actually mean.

I'm sorry.

But there's nothing you two can't work out.

I hope that's true.

Magnus Bane...

It has been too long.

Indeed, it has.

I'm sorry to call on you like this.

Clary...

this is Brother Zachariah.

You're a Silent Brother?

I know I appear unlike the others...

But that is a tale for another day.

These texts contain information on long forgotten demon forms.

They may hold a clue to your creature's identity.

You understand, if the Brotherhood discovers I helped you with this...

No one will know you were here today.

Thank you for your assistance.

Any friend of Will Herondale is a friend of mine.

Herondale?

We both were close with Jace's ancestor.

I know I shouldn't ask this, but...

did you help with Jace's treatment?

He's been...

acting differently since he got back.

We received his treatment request.

I would have been happy to oversee it.

"Would have been"?

What do you mean?

Jace Herondale never came to the Silent City.

(TENSE MUSIC)

Hey, stranger.

Hey.

You seem stressed.

Stressed?

No.

No.

I'm fine.

- I'm totally relaxed.

- Wanna talk about it?

Not really.

But how are you?

I heard about your mom.

Must be tough.

You know, I wish there was something more useful I can do...

being a Shadowhunter...

...it meant everything to her.

When my mom was going through her issues...

I felt powerless too.

But I realized that sometimes, a parent just needs to know that you're there for them.

And you are, 'cause you're an awesome daughter.

What was that for?

For being you.

(OMINOUS MUSIC)

Hey...

You wanna play?

Oh, no.

No, no, no.

No.

I'm, um...

I'm good.

Are you good?

Yes.

Yeah.

Well, there is a chance if I try to get up from here I will fall over.

Yeah.

Apparently, I don't have the tolerance of a -year-old warlock.

Right.

And you know, this is your fault because you told me I should drink as much as I want.

Well, that's funny 'cause that's not exactly how I remember it.

Do you...

need help back to your table?

No.

No, no, no.

My mother cannot see me like this.

And Jace and Izzy, they will never let me hear the end of it.

Right.

I got an idea.

How about I help you through the back?

I'll hail you a cab.

And then when I come back in, I'll just tell your family that you got called in on Institute business.

You'd do that?

Sure.

Thank you.

Your secret's safe with me.

Restroom's that way.

You don't deserve him.

Excuse me?

You...

don't...

deserve...

him.

"Him" who?

(HISSING)

(BOTH GRUNTING)

(GLASS SHATTERING)

(HISSING)

- HEIDI: Get away from me!

- IZZY: Stay down!

State your name and clan.

Isabelle.

(HISSING)

Isabelle, wait!

- You know this vampire?

- Her name's Heidi.

I'm her sire.

It's a complicated story, but she's not in her right mind.

Raphael tortured her.

He thought because she had my blood, she might be a Daylighter too.

- So...

- Wait.

You're the one he experimented on?

Yes.

You knew about that?

I'm the one who made Raphael leave town.

So you understand.

I do...

but Simon, she went rogue.

Attacked a blood truck, killed a mundane.

She even tried to kill me.

She needs to be turned in to the Clave.

And the Clave will do what?

Execute her?

Toss her into the Gard forever?

She doesn't deserve that.

Look, everyone knows how hard it is for fledglings to control their urges, and she didn't have anyone looking out for her.

But now she does.

So please, Isabelle?

I'll make sure she never hurts anyone again.

Get her out of here.

Yeah.

Hey.

How's it going?

I'm good.

You?

Do you wanna step outside?

Maybe grab some fresh air?

No problem.

Isabelle?

Is that blood?

Oh, this?

You know, I tend to get nosebleeds.

It's...

it's something that kind of like, you know...

I'm not stupid.

What's going on with you?

Nothing.

Really, I'm fine.

Come on.

Let's get dessert.

(SIGHING)

There's usually cabs here.

Magnus and I had our first date here.

I asked him if he thought we were too different to be together.

We never really got around to answering that question.

And now...

Now, it's come around to bite me in the ass.

So that's why you got all tense when I brought it up.

I'm sorry.

- I didn't...

- Just...

Forget I said anything.

(SIGHING)

Look... I may not know all the details, but I think I can guess what you mean when you talk about your "differences." Magnus isn't a Shadowhunter.

He may not understand our ways.

Nephilim love once, fiercely.

Whatever you're feeling...

...it's OK.

Don't be so hard on yourself.

Right.

I gotta go.

Oh, here.

Let me get that.

I got it.

(SOFT MUSIC)

(ROCK MUSIC PLAYING)

Hang on.

I'll be right back.

OK.

Sorry to pop up like this, but you weren't answering your phone.

What's going on?

I thought you were headed home.

I am...

but I wanted to let you know I found a lead.

Transit surveillance footage of two of our Owl victims coming up from the subway at th Street.

th...

So you think they're gathering somewhere up in Harlem?

Could be.

Well, it's a start at least.

Nice work.

We'll check it out first thing in the morning.

It'll be safer to sniff around during the daylight.

Now get out of here.

Go spend time with your lady.

You go back to yours.

(TENSE MUSIC)

Simon.

What you did back there?

Choosing me...

you won't regret it.

I know that you don't love me.

But, um...

when you're ready, we'll start a clan of our own.

I'm sorry.

What?

I'm sorry.

Simon...

what's going on?

They're from the Praetor Lupus.

It's an organization that helps Downworlders.

They're here to...

help rehabilitate you.

If you cooperate, you won't be harmed.

You son of a bitch.

(GASPING)

(WHIMPERING)

Hey.

You did the right thing.

Well, why doesn't it feel like it?

(METALLIC RINGING)

If he wasn't in the City of Bones, then where the hell was he?

I'm sure there's an explanation, maybe even a good one.

We're supposed to be in this together!

You don't lie to someone you love.

Wait.

You said Jace was acting cold towards you earlier?

Detached?

As if he didn't have any feelings for you anymore?

I don't know...

I guess.

Around the time that Jace was preparing to go to the Silent City, a woman came to see me.

She requested an elixir that would make a person fall out of love.

There was something off about her.

I couldn't put my finger on it right away, but...

what if she was simply...

masking her power?

What if she was the demon that attacked you, disguised in human form?
