Things are really heating up on ‘Shadowhunters.’ The fourth episode premiered on Feb. 2 and Clary finally meets the mysterious Magnus Bane. However, instead of getting closer to finding her memories, she’s forced 10 steps back. We have the full recap, here!
This week’s Shadowhunters was SUPER intense! Clary finally learns that Magnus Bane is the one who took her memories, but when she finds the powerful warlock, it sets off a chain of events that leaves her with all hope of finding her mother lost! Here’s what happened.
Episode 4 starts off with a huge breakthrough: Clary dreams of her mom and a man “having her brain ripped out,” which was Magnus. Simon recognizes the name from when Camille the vampire got mad when he told her Clary didn’t have any memories of the mortal cup. As soon as she brings it up to Jace, it’s clear Magnus is the key to recovering Clary’s memories, her mother, and the cup. Or so they thought.
Upon finding Magnus at a super-cool downworld rave, Clary learns that he doesn’t have her memories anymore. However, he is really freakin’ nice and offers to protect her, plus he’s clearly very attracted to Alec, and we can see the sparks flying between them. Despite refusing, the gang ends up at Magnus’ lair anyway, and so did Valentine! His henchmen are killing everyone, and find out Clary is there when she runs out of hiding to save a little girl. This can’t be good.
When Magnus finally gets them all to safety, he tells Clary she can get her memories back by summoning the Memory Demon, which is a dangerous and painful process. They all have to hold hands around a pentagram as a demon-tornado shows each of them who they love most. Alec sees Jace, and freaks out and breaks the circle, so the demon tries to suck Jace in! Clary saves his life… but kills the demon. He was her last chance at recovering the memories that will help save her mother.
Though all this, Simon is struggling with crazy mood swings and hallucinations after storming off to his mom’s house. Remember when we had an inkling he might be turning into a vampire? Yeah, that’s definitely a thing. When Moreen shows up to profess her love to him (OMG AMIRITE?!), and cuts her finger, Simon is literally dumbstruck staring at the blood… and even tastes it! Ick. All of this bloodlust leads him back to Camille, who you might remember wanted to kill him last time she saw him. Good luck with that one, Simon!
