Shadowhunters - Stay With Me - Review + POLL

This week on Shadowhunters, everyone was very interested in Lilith all of a sudden. Jonathan went to see the Seelie Queen about the sword he was looking for and he offers to kill Lilith for it (and to save his own life). Right when he’s about to strike, Lilith is pulled from Edom by Clary, Izzy, Jace, Simon, and Cain (for protection) who want to know how to unlink Clary and Jonathan. She tells them it can only be done with heavenly fire for which they need another sword that no longer exists. Jonathan attacks, Lilith is freed by Cain and Clary manages to trap Jonathan. Izzy tells Clary and Jace that the Clave may have an off the books operation that involves heavenly fire. Magnus is in bad shape. Alec asks Lorenzo for help who removes the magic he gave earlier. Magnus asks his mother for the family ring so he can propose to Magnus. Luke is freed from Prison by the Praetor Lupus. 

Oh, great: It gets a bit awkward when I find myself siding with Jonathan, but at least he had the right idea. That idea was to kill Lilith. Sure, his motives were evil but it sure was better than what the good guys did. I’m sorry, but how arrogant do you have to be to think you can summon one of the most powerful demons to ever exist and contain her. Of course, she was going to get free. And yeah, they wanted answers and she was the only one who could give them. I’m still surprised she actually gave those answers, probably only to rub it in their faces that their only option no longer existed. Little did she know that was not actually the case. Though finding a specific sword in Idris is like finding a needle in a haystack. Good luck, guys. 


Consequences: As sad as Magnus was the first time he lost his magic, it’ll be worse now. To have it back for only a little while and lose it again. We saw how ingrained his magic is in his identity, he’s been a warlock all his life, without his magic he doesn’t know who he is. Alec may have fallen in love with him for different reasons but the absence of his magic will definitely leave a mark on their relationship. Which is why I don’t think this is the right time to propose marriage. Personally, I’d wait until Magnus is in a better place mentally. We did receive some clues as to where this storyline is headed from Lilith. It’s no coincidence that she mentioned the name of Magnus’ father. I wonder if Magnus will be desperate enough for his magic that he’ll confront his father again. 

Called it: I told you Luke wouldn’t spend a lot of time in jail. There’s no way they would have left a werewolf in jail, too much risk of exposure. I have to say though, my money was on the Clave. But I guess they figured werewolves are the Praetor’s business. I got a weird vibe from that guy, though. This leaves Luke indebted to them. I have a feeling that he won’t fully agree with how he’ll be repaying that debt. 

Nice save: For a minute there I thought Clary would disappear with Jonathan. I’m still not ruling it out as a possibility for a future episode. But for now, she seems to have it under control. However, if it hadn’t been for Simon, Izzy could have died. I’m surprised his first move was to bite and not just push out of the way. I guess those vampire instincts are pretty strong. A choice he later regretted. Drinking angel infused blood turned him into a daylighter. I wonder if drinking Jonathan’s, which was infused with demon blood, will have a nasty side effect. I guess only time will tell. 
It’s not you, it’s me: I realized something this week, something I should have figured out before (you’ll all say “duh”) but I figured out why I’ve been so frustrated with these last few episodes. We know that we’re slowly running out of episodes, but the writers didn’t at the time. This half of the season was only meant to cover book 5, of which I don’t remember much (which probably means it was a bit boring). All of this was supposed to be build up for the events of the final book. They thought they’d have an entire season to cover that gigantic sixth book. Instead, it’ll be a big 2 and a half hour episode to cover 700+ pages, while they had 10 episodes for 500+ pages. Not fair, I know, but also not their fault. I will try to move past it. 

Best quotes: Simon: “Cain should be around here. Hold on.” Izzy: “What is it?” Simon: “All clear. Not a rat in sight.” Izzy: “My hero.” 
Jace: “Hey, good job getting him here.” Simon: “No problem.” Jace: “Now go away.” Simon: “What?” Jace: “Look, I don’t have time to babysit you. Without your mark you’re defenseless.” Simon: “Defenseless? Do these look defenseless to you?” Jace: “Are you kidding?” 
Alec: “Magnus had a little health scare. He’s okay, everything’s fine. But when it happened, it made me realize how much he means to me and that I can’t live without him.” Maryse: “That’s what love is. I’m so happy you two found each other.” Alec: “Me too. And I need the family ring. I’m gonna ask Magnus to marry me.” 

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.
