Cinema 1 February, 2017

While Episode 5 of Season 2 of Shadowhunters was broadcast last night on Freeform, back on the main events that have marked “Dust and Shadows”!
A terribly sad episode! And yes the meltynauts, last night, the series inspired by the novels of Cassandra Clare played clearly with our emotions offering us a fifth dark and desperate shutter. Katherine McNamara gave us a striking performance of realism and terribly poignant at the very moment when her character was going through the worst ordeal of her existence. While the editorial ‘of melty proposing you to discover our review of episode 4 of season 2 of Shadowhunters , back in detail on key events in “Dust and Shadows” aired last night on Freeform . And the least we can say is that our heroine does not want to accept the harsh reality. Faced with a mourning that she is not ready to begin, the young woman has only one idea in mind: that of bringing her mother back to life. An unreasonable desire that Jace strongly recommends him to abandon. However, it was difficult to give up such a possibility when Jocelyn’s death was so brutal. As she says so well, Clary no longer feels anything. And for good reason, how can we integrate the death of the person we loved most in the world without having been able to prepare for it before? Ready to take all the risks, Clary ends up trying for the whole thing in the company of Alec who feels guilty of having carried the fatal stab.
From the beginning, it is clear that the witch chosen by Clary hides a dark secret. His way of speaking, his gestures, the atmosphere of his cabinet, the small Madzie, everything is very strange and extremely uncomfortable . Alec is the first to ask questions but in a vain hope to catch up with the situation, he agrees to stay in the waiting room while Clary finds herself alone with Iris. After signing an oath with her blood, the witch begins her ritual but is interrupted by our heroine who suddenly understands the risks that this implies. Jocelyn could come back in a diabolical form. But Iris is far from wanting to put an end to their agreement and then confesses her true plan: she forces shadow hunters to conceive a baby with demons in order to keep the Warlock race decimated by Valentin. A terrible choice but unfortunately leaves Clary defenseless. Fortunately, Alec, Jace and Isabelle eventually save her. The young woman must then bid farewell to her mother in a moving and heart-rending ceremony. Losing someone is always a tragedy, but losing your mother is a tragedy you never recover from. Meanwhile, Simon decided to go home and even confess to his mother that he is a vampire.
Obviously, difficult for her to admit that her son now feeds on blood. Will she run away or support Simon whatever it costs? Answer next week! On her side, Isabelle was trying to recover from the wound inflicted by the demon. And even if she would like to be already cured, her shoulder makes her suffer extremely. Aldertree noticed it immediately and offered him an ointment with galvanizing effects. But then, is this cream dangerous for the young woman? Does Victor have the best intentions? Not so sure ! Finally, Jace was back at the Institute but even though his behavior was heroic against Valentin and his men, Victor refuses to put up with the sponge. In his eyes, Jace should not have saved him but instead resumed the deadly sword. He thus prevented from going into the field . We do not know why but we are persuaded that Jace will quickly find a solution to counter this order. One thing is certain, this episode was simply explosive. Blending wisely bouncing and emotion, the series clears the way to darkness and we look forward to discovering the sequel. But before, do not forget that you can find all the episodes excluded on Netflix. Meanwhile, discover our review of episode 3 of season 2 of Shadowhunters. What did you think of this episode?
