03x21 - Alliance

[JACE] Previously on Shadowhunters...

[SEELIE QUEEN] 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?

In what world is Magnus Bane my better? [GASPS]

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

We've been monitoring one of our former Praetor.

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

Maia, I stole this for you, so you can be human again.

- Are you gonna use it?
- No.

[LUKE] I'll get rid of it.

Simon, get down!

- [SIMON] Izzy?
- [ISABELLE GROANING]

When Glorious exploded, you saved my life.

How could I not?

Jonathan! Please, stop this.

[JONATHAN] There is no stopping this.

You'll never love me back!

[JACE] They're just gonna keep coming

until everything we love is gone.

[MAGNUS] My father told me about a way to increase my power.

Enough to close the rift?

The strength I would need can only come from one place.

Edom?

You always come back.

[SEELIE QUEEN] Not feeling yourself?

I can't taste anything anymore.

It is beginning.

- What is?
- Your transformation.

Your truer nature is finally starting to burn away all that is left of your...

My humanity.

Those wings you birthed once your sister was taken away from you...

You're very much becoming who you were always meant to be, and it's quite beautiful.

You're not here to flirt with me.

I'm here to help you.

Although, I'll flirt with you as well, if you'd like.

My predecessor, she saw this with her own eyes, when Lucifer was torn free from Michael with the very same blade that cleaved you from your sister.

And that allowed him to become what?

The devil?

A demon to end all demons.

But not before he went through what I gather was a very painful metamorphosis.

While I appreciate the history lesson, I struggle to understand why it is you felt the need to share.

I'm a bit of a preservationist.

And you are the most unique thing in the entire world.

I can help you adjust...

Don't touch me.

Where are you going?

[JONATHAN] Away from you.

[BREATH TREMBLING]

♪ We're coming ♪

♪ After you ♪

♪ This is the hunt ♪

♪ This is the hunt ♪

Any word on Magnus?

No.

Alec must be devastated.

Alec's strong.

He's determined to get him back and we will.

I know we will.

I got you back, didn't I?

Did you?

You're the same Clary you've always been.

No, I'm not.

How do I come back after everything I've done?

The same way I did.

And I'll be here to help you, no matter what.

Have you eaten yet?

[SIGHS] No.

Sweetheart, it's okay to take some time to mourn.

Magnus' bravery saved Alicante.

His sacrifice is the only thing that allowed the Clave to successfully banish those remaining wraiths.

Magnus is not dead.

He is in Edom.

We both know that he can't ever come back home.

The rift would reopen and all of Edom would come back with him.

I'm going to find a way.

And I'm going to get him back.

[SIGHS]

I have a wedding to plan.

[LILITH] Someone had a busy night.

I'd say you were rude for neglecting to knock, but Dad didn't really seem to care much for doors. [CHUCKLES]

Or ceilings, for that matter.

Well, with weather like this, why bother?

While I do enjoy the chitchat, I do wonder, are you here to finish off what you started in my apartment?

Oh, no.

Let bygones be bygones, Mr. Bane.

And why would I believe a word you say after you came into my home and showered me with lies?

I admit, the lengths a mother will go for her sick child can be... extreme.

That's in the past. I'm here to talk about the future.

[MAGNUS] Mmm.

A future in which things between you and me are less complicated

than they were between me and Asmodeus.

After all, I'd still be your father's prisoner had you not trapped him in limbo.

So, a cup of sugar, then, and you'll be on your way?

I had something a little bit sweeter in mind.

Just a tiny opening in the rift that you're holding closed, just large enough for me to fly through.

[MAGNUS] Mmm.

And why would I ever do that?

So I can murder that matricidal nightmare I call a son.

You of all people should understand family dysfunction, Magnus.

[MAGNUS] Mmm.

And what's to stop your thirst for vengeance from extending past Jonathan to my friends, hmm?

To the rest of humanity?

My word.

Your word.

[BOTH CHUCKLING]

Right.

That's enough to jeopardize everyone I love and cherish.

If your friends really cared about you, they wouldn't have let you leave.

Are you sure they're really worth all that trouble?

You want me to open the rift for you?

The answer is

no.

[LILITH GRUNTING]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

If I wasn't still recovering from that Daylighter's infernal mark...

But you are.

Get the hell out of my house.

[MAIA] People think that we all come into this world a certain way, but everyone in this roomknows that that's not true.

With Jordan, he did change.

[CRYING] Not for the worse, but for the better.

Uh... [SNIFFLES]

So, let him be an inspiration to us all.

To Jordan.

[ALL] To Jordan.

- Actually, may I?
- Uh, yeah.

Given how everything happened,

I know the last thing you want to do is listen to a vampire, but Jordan was my friend.

Even if sometimes he did things that infuriated me, they always were done from caring.

Except that one time he kicked my ass at Street Fighter.

[CHUCKLES] You and me both.

[CHUCKLES]

But the thing I'll remember most about him...

Things mattered to Jordan.

People, their troubles, their pain.

Cheers to you, mate. You mattered to us.

- [ALL] Cheers.
- [WOMAN] So sad.

Thank you for coming. You really meant so much to him.

So did you.

- How are you holding up?
- I'll be okay.

In fact, I gotta get out of here. I've got a train to catch.

A train? Where are you going?

Ocean City. To find my parents.

Maia, that's huge.

It's something I should have done a long time ago.

Reconnecting with Jordan and making amends before it was too late made me realize that life is short.

You can't be afraid to open your heart to the people that you care about.

You just have to let 'em know.

[CHUCKLES]

What?

You really sounded like an alpha just now.

Luke would be proud.

And where is Luke, anyhow?

[SIREN WAILING]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[PRAETOR SCOTT] Go ahead.

[LUKE GROANING]

[SEARING]

[LUKE SCREAMING]

[GROWLING]

[SIMON] Izzy?

I was just gonna call you.

What are you doing here?

I was thinking...

Life is too precious to waste any more time on stupid things, like pinky swears.

What are you trying to say?

♪ Maybe the end is just the start of us ♪

♪ Two stars in a cosmic bust ♪

♪ We've fallen But still we trust the sky ♪

♪ To pull us back into line ♪

♪ Line ♪

♪ I'm feeling fine ♪

[SIMON] Whoa.

- What? What's wrong?
- You're hot.

- And?
- No, like, you're burning.

Izzy...

- Izzy? Izzy!
- [ISABELLE PANTING]

[GRUNTS]

[SCRATCHING]

[SCRATCHING CONTINUES]

[LINE RINGING]

- [CATARINA OVER CELL PHONE] Hey, Alec.
- Hey, Catarina.

This is gonna sound a little bit crazy, but I think you should come over to Magnus' and check on his... lizard.

Lizard? Magnus has a lizard?

Yeah, I didn't know he had one either.

I thought he hated reptiles.

You have to come over here quickly. I have to go.

Something happened to Isabelle.

[DEVICE BEEPING]

- Hell of a first kiss, huh?
- [CHUCKLES]

Thank you for coming, Helen.

Well, with Aldertree in the Gard,

I suppose I'm the closest thing to an expert in heavenly fire there is.

That's definitely what that was?

The sword that you made to free Clary from Jonathan...

When the shrapnel hit you, it infused your cells with heavenly fire.

There must be a way to remove it.

Chelation therapy, maybe? What they use for silver poisoning?

If only it were that simple.

I was just on fire. No need to be delicate.

When I started working with Aldertree, one of our lead scientists was struck with the debris of an unstable canister of highly concentrated heavenly fire that exploded.

His condition was exactly like what's happening to you.

The heavenly fire within him flared up every time he came in contact with anything demonic.

What happened to him?

Each time he came in contact with a Downworlder, he became increasingly unstable, until the fire within him raged out of control, and just like that sword exploded, he was blown into pieces.

There was nothing that we could do to save him.

I'm a Shadowhunter.

If I keep hunting demons, I'll die?

It's not just demons, Isabelle.

Coming in contact with anything demonic, including those with demon blood, could set you off.

Potentially killing them, too.

Look, I know that this is a lot to process.

If you want, I could explain it to Alec and the others.

No. I'll tell them myself.

I didn't set her on fire. We were just kissing, and then...

You were kissing my sister?

I mean, she was kissing me, too...

Easy, big brother.

Izzy, I was so worried. Is everything all right?

Just some temporary side effects, but I'm gonna be fine.

[SIGHS] Thank the Angel.

What, am I not allowed to say that?

No, uh...

- Izzy, hey, are you okay?
- [ISABELLE] Hey.

We came as soon as we heard.

Great. Hugs for everybody else.

Simon, it...

The heavenly fire, from when the sword exploded, until it leaves my system, I can't touch anyone with demon blood.

For how long? Are we talking days, weeks, months?

I don't know. I don't know. But I'm gonna be fine, okay?

It's manageable.

What is going on here?

Isabelle and Simon were kissing when this happened.

What?

[ISABELLE] Please tell me you have a lead on Jonathan.

Yeah, we tracked down a mid-level demon known for associating with the Clave on Wall Street.

He didn't have any information on Jonathan.

- But he did have news on Lilith.
- What kind of news?

She's gathering an army to take down Magnus.

- She'll kill him.
- And if she does, the rift will reopen.

He sacrificed everything to save us.

If he's going up against Lilith, I have to be there with him.

Alec, you know that if any of us went to Edom, we'd die instantly.

The atmosphere is demonic, but maybe I can go.

My heavenly fire might protect me.

No, no. Only someone with demon blood can survive there.

Simon...

I don't have my mark anymore, but I'm sure if you give me enough swords,

- maybe I can...
- No.

I need you to turn me into a vampire so I can go.

What? Alec, are you out of your mind?

What else am I supposed to do?

Please, just let me try this.

- Absolutely not.
- Izzy's right. I'm a terrible sire.

- We'll find another way.
- What other way?

Huh? Tell me. Tell me something.
Any of you?

Okay, we've gotta figure something out.

Let's look in the archives under anything that even mentions the word Edom.

[SIMON] Okay.

I'll meet you there.

[JONATHAN WHEEZING AND COUGHING]

You poor thing.

Go away.

[SEELIE QUEEN] Volatile as you may be, you will be completely vulnerable during your transformation.

[JONATHAN] Leave me alone.

Tell me, what if a Shadowhunter happens upon you

- as you lay cocooned and defenseless?
- [COUGHING]

They'll murder me in my sleep.

So, let me help you, dear.

[GROANING]

You will feel worse before you feel better.

If you dare betray me...

Now, why would I ever do that?

- [MELIORN] Isabelle.
- [ISABELLE GASPS]

Meliorn. Thank you for coming.

When the most beautiful Shadowhunter, inside and out, says she needs to see you, who can refuse?

What is it?

Seelies have access to dimensional doorways, right?

Why do you ask?

I need you to get me into Edom.

She said the heavenly fire in her veins would shield her against Edom's demonic atmosphere.

Why would she take that on herself?

[MELIORN] She didn't want all of you putting your lives at risk.

And you didn't try to stop her from going?

I did. But she convinced me it was the only way to save Magnus.

- She begged me not to tell you.
- Yet here you are.

I wanted to honor my word, but the thought of Isabelle in danger, all alone...

I had to tell you.

Thank you, but what can we do?

I have an idea. Hear me out.

Can you get all of us into Edom through the Seelie Realm?

I'm afraid not.

My queen just sealed our borders. I know not why.

Even if we could, we'd die.
We've been over that.

What if I could create a rune that binds Downworlders to Shadowhunters?

We could share skills, powers and immunities.

Kind of like a temporary parabatai rune.

Look, bonding one Shadowhunter
to another, that's one thing.

This is different. It's dangerous.

Remember what happened when you runed Valentine back to life?

I can make this work, Jace.

We don't have any choice.
We're running out of time.

If it's the only way to save Izzyand Magnus, I think it's worth a try.

[THUNDER RUMBLING]

[DEMONS SCREECHING]

[GASPS]

[GRUNTS]

[GRUNTS]

[PANTING]

Magnus, where are you?

[JONATHAN GASPS]

It is time.

There is nothing more beautiful than the birth of a god.

[JONATHAN BREATHING HEAVILY]

[SEELIE QUEEN] And you, my dear, are absolute perfection.

[EXHALES]

Lorenzo, thank you for coming on such short notice.

Thank you for restoring me.

Not that it changes anything between us.

I'm here for my fellow warlocks, not you.

Ah, Meliorn, envoy of the queen.

Good evening, Mr. Rey.

[LORENZO] And Mr. Lewis, "Royal Blue" himself.

I can appreciate a good melody when I hear one.

Thank you. [CLEARS THROAT]

I see the representative for the wolves has yet to arrive.

As my first act on the Downworld Council,

I move that we start the proceedings without them.

Give a dog too much leash, and they never learn to heel.

This isn't actually a council meeting.

I brought you here to help us save Magnus and my sister.

Help you save the warlock who stood by and watched while his father turned me into a reptile, left to dine on dead flies?

May your precious boyfriend spend eternity in Edom.

Goodbye and good riddance.

If it weren't for me, you'd still be eating dead flies.


- This isn't just about Magnus.
- It's about Isabelle, too.

And the fate of every other living creature on the planet.

Help us, and you'll forever be known as Lorenzo Rey, the warlock who helped save the world.

You ready?

Bubbie Helen would kill me if she knew I was getting a tattoo.

You sure one of you guys doesn't want to go first?

- Absolutely not.
- No, thank you.

Simon, it's gonna work. I promise.

I've never doubted you before, Fray.

Go.

- [CLARY GRUNTS]
- [SIMON GROANS]

Clary, this is a lot of resistance.

I got it. The angels wouldn't have given me this power

if they didn't want me to use it.

[GRUNTS]

- Are you okay?
- It stings a little.

[CLARY] Whoa.

[CHUCKLES]

So, I guess it worked?

Who's next?

[LORENZO] Almost there.

- You really sure this will work?
- It has to.

This is incredible.

Okay, so, Alec gets magic, Clary gets vamp speed, and what do I get? Pointy ears?

You'll learn my true powers next time you take your lover to bed.

[LORENZO] Impressive, if I do say so myself.

And you're positive this can get us into Edom?

Not just in. Out, too.

Although, it feels like a waste to ignite such craftsmanship.

I suppose thus is the ephemeral nature of my art.

[JACE] Let's do this.

Maybe, if we're lucky, we'll find Izzy and Magnus in the same keep.

Right, where's the keep?

We'll use the ring that Magnus gave Alec to track him once we arrive.

Okay, everyone ready?

What could go wrong? It's just Hell.

This might burn a little.

[ALL WINCING]

[PANTING]

Simon?

Jace?

[DEMONS SCREECHING]

[THUNDER RUMBLING]

- Whoa! Whoa! Easy.
- Sorry.

[SIMON] This place is scary enough without you trying to stab me.

Where is everyone else?

I thought you could tell me.

I think we're on our own.

Great.

My Tracking rune isn't working.
None of them are.

Then it appears you're more of a warlock than you bargained for.

Our connection must be strong enough to fool your stele.

You drew the pentagram. Why didn't you keep us together?

Likely a side effect of your friend's Alliance rune.

I can't even send a fire message to tell them where we are.

Isabelle and Magnus are counting on us.

Mr. Lightwood, there's more than one way to send a fire message.

Look at the rocks surrounding you.

You have to calm down.

- I can't.
- You can.

The same magic that confounds your stele is at your disposal.

Magic I can't even control.

Nobody ever said this was going to be easy.

But luckily, you have me.

[JACE] According to Alec and Lorenzo, Magnus shouldn't be far from that rift.

Then beneath that rift is where we shall strive to be.

Bringing a leather jacket to Hell, that was a great idea.

You're not hot?

Are you sweating from the heat or from fear?

From fear. I'm terrified.

I can't lie, can I?

No. Perfect. Let's go find the others.

[CHUCKLES]

- [SIMON] Whoa!
- [CLARY EXCLAIMS]

[SIMON] Almost there.

Yeah, Edom is definitely not the Brooklyn Academy of Art.

[BOTH CHUCKLE]

Given the chance, would you go back?

To school?

I wouldn't trade the Shadow World for anything.

[CHUCKLES] Before, I always felt like there was something missing.

And then I met Jace outside Pandemonium and my life finally made sense.

Besides, if none of this would have happened, you would have never met Izzy.

[SIMON CHUCKLES]

Look, for me, becoming a Shadowhunter, it's who I was always meant to be.

And even now, despite everything that we've been through, I feel...

- I feel...
- Hungry?

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

Is that what I think it is?

This is good stuff. Medical grade, totally organic. Trust me.

- [GRUNTS]
- Yeah, I know.

Still wouldn't trade the Shadow World for anything?

Not even for a second.

Isn't it beautiful?

Nature never ceases to amaze me.

I have no interest in taking a stroll through the woods with you.

Patience, dear.

[MAN GRUNTING]

- What is this?
- A gift.

Sacrificial lambs, so that you might hone the art of slaughter.

Stolen while they slept from an island at sea.

Take your wrath, Jonathan, and focus it.

Away from nature and toward those who would stand against you.

Stop. The flowers and the trees cause you no harm, Jonathan.

The Shadowhunters, they are the enemy. Focus on them.

[MUFFLED SPEAKING]

[GRUNTS]

If you're going to kill anyone, let it be me. Please.

Let the rest of them go.
Take your wrath out on me.

As you wish.

[GASPING]

Imagine what you could do, what we could do, with this power.

The Shadow World will be ours to command.

- Okay.
- Stop.

- One more question.
- No.

- A serious question.
- Please, stop.

On a scale of one to ten, how handsome do you think I am?

- Like a nine.
- Nine.

Jace, thank you. That's very kind of you.

I hate to burst your bubble, but we've got bigger things to worry about right now than your vanity.

[GROWLING]

[BOTH GRUNT]

[BOTH GRUNTING]

[JACE] My runes aren't working.

If you've got any secret fairy spells, now might be the time.

I'm afraid that Seelie magic has little dominion in this realm.

What the hell does that mean?

That means that there's very few plants.

[DEMONS SCREECHING]

Isabelle.

[ISABELLE PANTING]

You shouldn't have come.

- Are you okay?
- [ISABELLE] I'm fine.

We need to get to Magnus.

Son of a...

[SCOFFS] Well, I'll be damned.

[DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES]

It was quite a thing to see, those runes of yours bubbling back up right after you passed out.

- Incredible.
- Where the hell am I?

At the Praetor compound. Safe and very well taken care of.

Here, give one a whirl.

Don't worry, the adamas won't burn you anymore.

Seems like Lucian Graymark has indeed returned.

Wolf or not, he never left.

But he would like to know why the Praetor needs a Shadowhunter at his beck and call.

The clandestine project that created the serum that returned you to your old self?

It's proof enough that the Clave has gone unchecked by the Downworld for long enough.

You want a Praetor spy?
Not gonna happen.

You might wanna rethink that.

Praetors could make life quite difficult for you.

Well, last time I checked, the good guys didn't use blackmail to get what they want.

[CHUCKLES]

It's exceedingly rare that I don't get what I want.

If you're looking for an errand boy with Nephilim blood and a seraph blade, then you're barking up the wrong tree.

I'm not anyone's pawn.

But if you need someone looking after the Downworld?

Well, that's something I would've done, no matter what.

[ALEC] Magnus!

Magnus!

[MAGNUS EXCLAIMS]

Alexander.

I thought I'd never see you again.

I told you, it's only Edom.

And we weren't going to let you fight Lilith alone.

"We"?

I'm simply doing what any High Warlock would do.

If we succeed, then what?

Then I stay here with you. I'm never leaving you again.

Magnus.

- Biscuit.
- [CLARY] You're okay.

Jace and Meliorn are on the way. But where's Isabelle? Is she here?

Isabelle? Should she be?

You don't look so good, Iz.

I told you, as long as I stay away from anyone with demon blood,

- I'll be fine.
- Including Simon?

It's okay. I get it. He's a good guy.

He's been through so much already.

It's lucky he's tougher than he looks.

I actually always kind of admired that about him.

You have?

You're bonded with Meliorn.
You can't lie, can you?

Shadowhunters, over here.

Is that the keep?

No, that looks like a castle fit for a queen.

[ISABELLE] Lilith.

If those wraiths are piling inside, she must be in there.

Hey, hey. What are you doing?

Now's our chance.

She won't be expecting an attack.
We'll bring the fight to her.

Izzy, you can't use your heavenly fire against Lilith.

It could kill you.

Listen to your brother.
