Shadowhunters (S03E05) “Stronger Than Heaven” Review

AAA: WEREWOLF GIRL MISSING. Where was Maia? No sign of her. Remember what I said the past three episodes about Maia and Isabelle not having scenes that did not pertain to men? Maia couldn’t interact with her boyfriend Simon in this ep, so why bother writing her scenes at all, right SH writers? Izzy thankfully…

Shadowhunters (S03E03) “What Lies Beneath” Review

Episode 3×03 of Shadowhunters, aptly titled “What Lies Beneath”, didn’t move the general plot forward, but at least it moved it sideways. We caught up with Raphael, Maryse, and Heidi. And we also found out who Lilith’s owl is. But more on that later. Malec fans will rejoice at the domesticity we’re being shown this…

Shadowhunters (S03E02) “The Powers That Be” Review

Not going to lie: Shadowhunters is only on episode 2 of its junior year and it was already a filler. Enjoyable and emotional, but still a filler episode nonetheless, that didn’t further the plot in any way. “The Powers That Be” served to give the existing couples screen time and to disregard the two main characters who are not in…

Shadowhunters (S03E01) “On Infernal Ground” Review

SHADOWHUNTERS came back with a bang. The season 3 premiere proved everyone’s promises right: they all said the adjective to describe it would be “darker”. The episode opens in the gloomy and mysterious Church of Talto in New York, with Lilith (Anna Hopkins) clutching Sebastian’s corpse and promising her son she will bring him back….

Interview with Ariana Williams (Madzie on Shadowhunters)

Ariana Williams is currently starring in Freeform’s supernatural-hit Shadowhunters. She is a very young actress but her future is definitely bright. I had the opportunity to talk with Ariana and ask her some questions about herself and what it is like portraying one of the fandoms favorite young warlocks: Madzie! We first meet Madzie in…

Interview with Kevin Alves (Bat Velasquez on Shadowhunters)

How does it feel to be a part of something as big and impactful as Shadowhunters? Is it anything like you expected when you first auditioned? It’s been overwhelming to see how many people are so impacted by the show but it has been so exciting to know that our work can help someone get…

Shadowhunters (S02E20) “Beside Still Water”

Shadowhunters went out in great style – the second season finale did not disappoint: even book fans are happy as the plot followed the ending of City of Glass, the third installment in Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series. The episode opens with Sebastian coming ashore and begging help from his “Mother.” A pentagram opens and dragon-like…

Seelie Queen: Lola Flanery

After watching Shadowhunters this season, the moment which never leaves my mind is “Dead Dead Dead”. With that being said, I set out to interview the star portraying the role Lola Flanery herself and ask her about her career, current plans and what holds in for her in the future. 1. This might be your year, looking…

Shadowhunters: (S02E04) “Day of Wrath”

“The descent into Hell is easy.” The Clave’s motto perfectly describes this episode as chaos breaks loose throughout the institute. The episode opens with Clary visiting Jace in the City of Bones, where he is locked away until his trial. He is accused of treason against the Clave and the murder of two Downworlders. While…

Shadowhunters: (S02E03) “Parabatai Lost”

Much of “Parabatai Lost” revolves around the relationship between Alec and Jace. The title could quite literally describe Alec, as he is lost in a dream-like state for the entirety of the episode, unable to snap out of it without Jace’s help. Magnus remains by Alec’s bedside for a majority of the episode, trying to…

Shadowhunters: (S02E02) “A Door Into the Dark”

The second episode of Shadowhunters season 2, “A Door into the Dark,” takes us through Clary’s search for where she fits in and Alec’s growing desperation and anger the longer Jace is away. It begins with Jace dealing with the consequences of killing the vampire in the previous episode. He feels remorse, though Valentine tries…
