03x20 - City of Glass

- SIMON: Previously on Shadowhunters...
- JACE: I only lost sight of her

- for a minute.
- Enough time for the Twinning

Rune to have taken hold.

The Seelie Queen wants you dead...

You came for me.

No one can hurt us if we get the Morning Star first.

And once we have that sword, the entire world will be terrified of us.

Lucifer possessed the Morning Star blade but Michael had a sword of his own called Glorious.

We've had our eyes on you for quite some time, Graymark.

You answer to the Praetor Lupus now.

They injected me with something and suddenly, I became human again.

It's gotta be the heavenly fire.

- Wait, so there is some left?
- After the extraction for the sword for Clary, there's only one vial.

Just one?

If you ever cared about Magnus, get him his magic and his immortality back.

Under one condition: end your relationship.

- Stay with me.
- I can't.

Magnus can never know about our arrangement or the deal is off.

We are going to kidnap the Seelie Queen.

Are you trying to take me away from my brother?!

I'm trying to save you!

JONATHAN: Clary, we've gotta go! Now!

Jace? Jace, what happened?

Where's Clary?

You know, usually, when people are kidnapped, they scream; they beg.

Why are you smiling?

When you first came to my Court...

I thought you nothing more than an impetuous child.

But you're a man now, aren't you?

Perhaps you shouldn't have underestimated me.

A mistake I can't possibly make again.

Never in the history of the Seelie Court has someone managed to do what you have.

Well... I can't take all the credit...

your Highness.

If you two are done flirting...

I wasn't flirting.

I was.

We have to attend to the matter at hand.

Your people have something that belongs to us.

So, why don't you use your birds and your bees to tell the Seelie Court to hand over the Morning Star sword.

And if I don't comply?

I'd expect this behaviour from a proper Morgenstern... not from you. (GIGGLING)

I am a proper Morgenstern... just like my brother.

After all...

"We are one."

(DISTANT SIREN BLARING)

Here, Son. For your strength.

Don't call me "son."

But that's what you are.

And I'm your father... sworn to protect and care for you through all of eternity.

If you think by buying me a snack I'm gonna welcome you with open arms, you are mistaken.

What else can I do to take your mind off this awful heartache of yours?

I just need some rest.
Then let's get you home.

Well, therein lies the wrinkle.

I'm currently unwanted at the Institute, and my apartment is...

Well, it's no longer my apartment.

You gave it up willingly?

Remitted as payment for services rendered to the new High Warlock of Brooklyn.

And this contract is binding because...

Because a man's word is his bond.

Still, he's born of demon blood, isn't he?

Yeah, of course.

I don't know what that has to do with...

Look, I don't need your help.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go get a hotel.

Wait, Magnus.

Hear me out.

This new High Warlock...

What's his pedigree?

Turning Jace over is not an option.

I don't see how you have much say in the matter.

He helped kidnap our queen.

Jace Herondale needs to pay for his crimes.

- I was undercover.
- And how many Seelie Knights did you injure to maintain your façade?

Jace was trying to buy us enough time to rally a cure

- for Clary's condition.
- What cannot be denied is that Clarissa Fairchild a Shadowhunter has committed an act of war.

Kidnapping your queen was Jonathan's plan.

And was it also "Jonathan's plan" for Clary to murder the Seelie agent that's currently

- rotting in your morgue?
- You mean the one who set demon traps all over the city and then broke into our sub cells?

(INAUDIBLE WHISPERING)

It would seem my Queen's ransom has finally been demanded.

The time of the exchange approaches.

Meliorn...

Jonathan cannot be allowed to get his hands on that sword.

If he does, the number of demons he could release from Edom...

That blade and those that wield it are of no further concern to us.

Then just hold them long enough for us to get there with Glorious.

Seelies can't lie.

To double-cross would go against our nature.

Please...

Please, Meliorn.

I'd be indebted to you forever.

We can, however, be forgetful... leaving entrances to the realms... unlocked.

Do with that what you will.

(TENSE MUSIC)

(SOFT MUSIC)

Hey. Izzy, you know the Wander Woods, right?

Like the back of my hand. Why?

We've got an ambush to plan.

Count us in.

Pure Heavenly Fire is deadly to anyone with demon blood.

That includes all Downworlders.

This is Clary we're talking about.

The original Glorious was shattered when Michael used it on Lucifer. This one could be unstable too.

Izzy, you're not doing this without us.

Yes. We are.

- How'd it go with the Seelies?
- Better than expected.

That said, I need to start gearing up for mission right now.

Is something wrong?

I was hoping you'd tell me.

I hadn't heard from you since you asked for the family ring.

Or from Magnus since Halloween.

Mom, I can't talk about this right now.

If I did or said anything

- to offend the two of you...
- Mom. Stop.

It's not something you did or didn't do.

I broke up with Magnus.

What?!

Why in the name of the Angel would you ever do that?

Because I had to.

This is the only way he's ever gonna become whole again.

I should never have asked for this in the first place.

(CLASSICAL MUSIC PLAYING)

(DOOR OPENING)

Bursting through my door unannounced...

I thought that was reserved for your better half.

Alec and I are no longer.

Not that that's any of your business.

You're not here for a love potion, are you?

Because that is drama I very much do not need.

No. But returning my apartment would go a long way towards healing my... aching heart.

(CHUCKLING)

No.

Perhaps I forgot to say...

(SONOROUS VIBRATION)

please.

And here I thought you'd learned your lesson.

It wasn't one of my warlocks that helped you, was it?

No. Help came from outside your jurisdiction.

I'd say that'd be putting it mildly.

Asmodeus.

Getting daddy to fight your battles, Bane?

Pathetic.

I'm not sure that's the tone to be taking with my boy.

He is your better, isn't he?

In what world is Magnus Bane my better?

In Edom, apparently.

Your father... the demon Belial...

Is a subject of mine, which makes you a subject of Magnus's.

Bloodlines and all.

My only fealty - fleeting as it may be - is to the Elders in the Spiral Labyrinth, and when they

hear about this...

When they hear about what?

You didn't kill him.

And you didn't save him.

Well, as far as roommates go... he'll be quiet.

It's good to be the king, isn't it?

(RISING MUSIC)

♪ Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ♪

♪ I'm torn between the past that I want ♪

Hey.

What was so important that you couldn't tell me on the phone... and I had to drive all the way out here?

You're not recruiting wolves from Ocean City, are you?

No. It's... it's... it's nothing like that.

I'm just feeling a bit nostalgic, I guess.

OK, Jordan. What's wrong?

♪ I want you by my side along the way ♪

(OMINOUS MUSIC)

Tell me that's not what I think it is.

I stole it from the Weapons Room on our way out of the Institute.

Everyone's so busy trying to separate your friend Clary from her brother that they're not even gonna

- realize it's missing.
- Jordan, look.

I know you've been through a lot lately, but going back to mundane life is not gonna fix your problems.

No.

But it might fix some of yours.

Maia, I stole this for you.

So you can be human again.

(CARS HONKING)

(DISTANT SIREN BLARING)

I don't like to be kept waiting.

I came as soon as I got your text, all right?

But right now, things are a little busy.

You say that like you have a choice in the matter.

Look, I don't have time for this, all right?

Open that door, Graymark,

I'll have you put right back behind bars.

We've been monitoring one of our former Praetor.

He has something we need. Something that can change the nature of the entire Downworld.

What do you need me to do?

(ENGINE STARTING)

- Hey.
- Where did you go?

I had to make a phone call.

What are you still doing here? I told you to go home.

I figured we still need to work out our going rogue plan.

I know Jace and Isabelle are trying to protect us, but it's not right. We can contribute.

- I can contribute!
- I know...

But this is one mission... we have to leave it to the Nephilim.

Whoa, whoa. Did you hear what you just said?

How are you OK with that?

Don't think for a second that I am.

- Well, y...
- I gotta take care of something.

Wait, what? What? What's more important than bringing Clary home? Luke!

The Queen is secure.

Why haven't we left?

I guess I got distracted.

It's difficult for me to believe that this is actually happening.

What... the two of us on the verge of reclaiming our birthright?

Yeah... precisely that.

You and me.

Us.

The look you had in your eyes the first time you saw my true face... the hatred... the disgust...

I guess I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

What Lilith did to me... forcing us to be attached to each other... not being able to fight you without hurting myself... at first, I thought it was a curse.

And now?

Without this rune, I would never have been forced to see you for who you really are.

I was wrong about you.

And you will always be my brother.

And, as my older brother... don't you think it's about time to teach me how to drive this place?

It's... my home too, isn't it?

What's mine is yours.

Magnus, what are you doing here?

I would ask the same of you.

I was hoping Lorenzo would know where to find you.

I just want to understand why Alec did what he did.

(SONOROUS VIBRATION)

- Then you should talk to him.
- Wait...

Your magic...

You're "whole" again.

And that's to say what?

I was lesser without my magic?

Stop. You know I love you.

And despite what he might say to the contrary, Alec does too.

Not three days ago, he came into my shop asking me for this.

Is the Lightwood family ring supposed to mean something to me?

It would if he had given it to you the other night at dinner when he planned to.

(SOFT MUSIC)

Oh, my God... then...

why break my heart?

Magnus, when exactly did your magic return?

(RISING MUSIC)

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

(SOFT MUSIC)

Maia...

Take that back to the Institute before you before you get taken by the Gard.

Jail would be worth it if for even a moment you got to live life as a normal person again.

This is the new normal!

Without being tied down to a pack, you could start over somewhere else.

Me starting over means that I would have to leave this life behind and that includes you, and I just got you back!

No.

You didn't.

♪ When we start ♪

♪ We never see how far we'll go ♪

♪ The end... ♪

No...

No, the... the Praetor shaman said that you were cured of your silver poisoning.

I just, I...

I wanted to be the one to tell you...

I just, I was waiting...

♪ How far we'll go ♪

♪ The end... ♪

I was just waiting for the right time.

And... I don't have much longer.

That's why you need to take this... and live a normal life for the both of us.

Did you really think I wouldn't find out?

You can't blame a father for trying, can you?

Alec was gonna ask me to marry him.

How mundane.

You'll come to your senses once you get this all out of your system.

Anger is in our blood, after all.

We are nothing alike.

I'm a royal.

You're a royal.

That's all that matters.

Stop with this terrestrial nonsense and become who you are truly meant to be: a prince at my side as I reign as King of all Edom!

THAT IS MY WORST NIGHTMARE!

Your magic... our magic... is imperial.

When yours was added to mine,

I was powerful enough to keep Lilith in her place.

Don't you realize how much stronger you could be in Edom?

Together, we could control the entire Demonic Plane.

I should banish you back so Lilith can deal with you instead.

Don't you get it?

I'll just keep finding my way back to you.

True.

That's why I won't be banishing you back to Edom.

I don't know whether to be honoured or offended that you're trying to stab me and not Jonathan.

You left me no choice.

You seem worried.

What can I say? You're a better fighter now.

I've been a better fighter for a while.

You just haven't paid attention.

You're not even gonna try and fight me?

You and I both know that's not true.

Izzy's taking too long.

Go. I got him.

Stand down, or this kindjal finds its way into Simon.

You thinking about using that?

Using what?

It's OK. I won't tell the Clave if you don't.

Stealing it from the Institute wasn't my call.

Is that why Jordan's down by the water and you're over here?

He wants me to use it.

Even though if he used it, then he wouldn't be a wolf anymore and maybe he... wouldn't be dying from his late stage silver poisoning.

What do you mean, "dying"?

The wound he got in the attack.

He says the damage has been done.

The serum won't help him.

He refuses to take it.

But the Praetor fixed it.

That's what they told me.

Liars.

Are you gonna use it?

No.

I've spent too much time...thinking about the past, you know?

Going back...

wouldn't help me in the present.

I'll get rid of it.

This can't go back to the Clave.

No one should have this much power.

Agreed.

Should I talk to him?

Whoa!

I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were, uh, indisposed.

Unlike this stupid shrapnel.

(SIGHING) Can you help me with this, please?

I can't activate my Iratze until all the pieces are out.

Yeah.

Is there anything else I can do to help before I leave?

Well... to be honest, as long as the towers are up, no one with demon blood can set foot inside the city.

So, why are they so worried about Jonathan getting there first?

He might have demon blood, but he's still Nephilim.

(EXHALING SHARPLY)

Besides, you've done a lot.

Not as much as you...
