Shadowhunters - Day Of Atonement - Review + POLL

This week on Shadowhunters, Clary and Jace go to Lake Lynn to search for a cabin where Valentine might be hiding out. Their trip doesn’t go as planned when Clary ingests some of the water which makes her hallucinate. Izzy goes looking for them and they are able to snap her out of it. They were right about the cabin. Sebastian tells his father what happened to him after being banished to Edom. He almost sends him there as well but changes his mind at the last minute. Clary, Jace and Izzy just miss them. Meanwhile, Simon and Maia go to Simon’s house to celebrate Yom Kippur. It seems to snap him out of the funk he’s been in after the break up with Clary and last week’s incidents. Robert arrives at the Institute to aid Alec, which doesn’t go so well. Clary figures out that her brother is still alive. 

Don’t do it: Earlier this season I was so happy because I thought the writers were going to skip over Simon and Maia’s relationship. Now, however, it seems that I was mistaken. It hasn’t happened yet, so I still have hope but it seems likely at this point. Aside from the fact that I wasn’t a fan of their relationship in the books because that was not handled well at all, Simon really shouldn’t be jumping into a new relationship right after he and Clary broke up. Why can’t a guy and girl ever just stay friends on TV? 

Any day now: Clary and Jace do seem to grow closer each week. I think we’re officially past the sibling vibes. It’s only a matter of time before they start to realize they have feelings for each other, then they’ll resist it for a few episodes, and get together. It was interesting to see how Jace got through to Clary this week. I’m not sure if it was his special power that did it or if it was just their connection but it worked. Though, Clary, like Simon, should not be jumping into another relationship just yet. 

Ouch: So it’s been a while since I’ve read the books, therefore the details are a bit blurry but I don’t remember the part where Valentine ships Jonathan off to actual hell. Worst parent ever! Though, I do like that they’ve already introduced Edom into the story since it’ll be important a few seasons from now (depending on the writer’s timeline). It’s no wonder that he has such control over his powers if he spent all that time amongst demons. I’m surprised he even made it out of there semi-sane. I’m even more shocked that he just forgave his father, though I assume he probably has plans to punish him later. 

Please leave: I know he’s trying, and that at some point I referred to him as the better parent, but I really don’t like Robert. I get that he’s making an effort with his kids but I get the feeling that they’re not sure how to act around him. It’s tough being in between your parents, they probably feel like they have to choose sides. I assume that Alec is on his mother’s side (understandably) but I think it’ll be more difficult for Izzy and Max. He should be reassuring them rather than keeping things strictly professional. And I can’t believe he compared his affair to Alec’s relationship with Magnus. 

Best quotes: Maia: “Anybody alive in her? Or anybody dead in here?” 
Grandma: “So, I’m guessing you’re not Jewish?” Maia: “No, but I’ll convert if it means more Kugel.” Grandma: “I like her.” 

That’s it for this week. Check in again next week for an all-new review and let me know in the comments what you thought of this week’s episode. 

Please be respectful in the comments, any unnecessary rudeness isn't welcome.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
