Why is nobody asking Alec about breaking the circle in 1x04? There is a mention of parabatai. Alec has unstated love for Jace. Simon hangs out with a vampire. He is cumbersome. Witless Alec has causal disregard, he provokes. Clary is not contemplative and is preposterously jaunty. Clary goes on about a box.
Bane has polite bemusement. Werewolves are not essentially reasonable. A seelie lurks. Valentine is not evil in a venomous form. This has no looming menace. The Accords are mentioned. This ep is an absolute, unmitigated disaster. Simon and Clary are in peril. Luke can cause no revival of trust with Clary, at first. Luke is a werewolf, like duh.
“Why do you always look so miserable?”
“If he is worthy, he will live.”

“Luke’s car may have found its way into a pole.”
“Open the Great Book.”
“Why aren’t you dead?”
“I have a brother?”
Queen Leeza is supposed to be the girl from 1x01. It is a different actress. Claude is still not married. Exposition is dropped. Lola’s funeral is held in Scotland; she was a daft bimbo skank and isn’t missed. James is spurious. Clan Gordon kidnaps Mary. Gideon is a non-participant. Narcisse is in jail. The acting is bad. Claude tantrums. Where is Margot? You know, Queen Margot, the Valois who would outlive her entire line? Mary is ungrateful, rude and dim. Narcisse yells. One looks at this mess with incredulity. Mary is the worst.
Why does Mary obsesse over the English throne? She has her own throne to worry about. Mary shrieks and vows to marry Darnley. Sigh. Choppy choppy her head off already.
“Spain can’t fund this court forever.”
“That dead kitchen boy.”
“Right dynastic line.”
“End our line.”
“I had his father killed. Do you think I want him rising in station?”
“That is how your reign will end.”
“Are you waiting for my fall?”
“Justice cannot be a sin.”
Emma has a dying father and a disapproving mother. There are lots of secrets and hints. Emma is snotty and rude. Emma slutshames the schoolgirl who was buried alive. Emma blathers on about conifers. What is the deal with the RAF base? Emma mocks the dead girl’s family. The press are involved. Emma is trying to adopt?!? Emma’s boyfriend is a former press photographer.

Dirty pictures of Linda surface. A dodgy Yank and a man in the corridors of power discuss the case. What is going on? Who took those photos of Linda? Who killed her? This was good!
“Defending any more sex offenders?”
“Why hasn’t she got a phone with GPS like a normal person?”
“Most coerced confessions get thrown out. Yours wasn’t.”
“She never gave up on him, ever.”
“Bring up nothing but ridicule.”
“Also expose other things.”
“You let a terrorist’s wife live in your home and you set a murderer free.”
“The main fuel of fighter jets. Bombers.”
“We don’t want you here,”
“That mad cow.”
“He buried her twice.”
“This is a non smoking room.”
“Is there a stink to kick up?”
“Your obstructive attitude.”
“I was thrown out of my flat.”
