Review: Shadowhunters Season 2 Episode 13 “Those of Demon Blood”

A poorly written episodic distraction, ‘Shadowhunters’ focussed upon filler with poor character choices meant to inspire some greater internal reflection in the characters. Like the previous episode, this entry has very little long-term impact and anything presented seems to be simply manufactured, such as Jace’s future relationship and reinforcing Alec and Magnus’ status. There are also brief, broad, superficial political statements made which feel out of touch with the show’s greater purpose, never developed well enough to be anything but random, forced moments. The climax and reveal is also awfully constructed, a lame resolution to what was a meaningless episode. 4.6/10
