Review: Shadowhunters Season 2 Episode 19 “Hail and Farewell”

While the visual effects budget does seem to be running dry, as some sequences could desperately do with a make-over to ramp up the fantasy tension, the direction does serve to somewhat balance things out with some ambitious imagery. The narrative is fortunately heavily focussed on the main arc, as the writers nicely pull together the various strands of alliances and factions, each with their own distinctive motivations and graces. There is a lot of convenience though that does seem to undermine the plot’s suspense, yet the final act is extremely well constructed with some of the show’s best fighting scenes yet. 7.4/10
