The *revised* plan to rescue Clary

We’ve been here a few times already this season, but after Jace’s semi-failed attempt to infiltrate Team Evil… Alec, Jace, Izzy, Simon, and Luke are back at the “how to rescue Clary” drawing board in Shadowhunters Season 3, Episode 20, and not everyone is going to approve of the scheme. With the knowledge that Jonathan and Clary have successfully kidnapped the Seelie Queen, Jace and the team know it’s going to come down to a battle of the supernatural swords: Glorious vs. Morning Star.

In the released photos and trailer, we can clearly see that Clary and Isabelle will be using the unique weapons, while both JCs fight with their weapons of choice. Dark Clary still wants her presence to be known, and she’s not above shooting Isabelle some verbal zingers as the pair instigates their showdown.

The pacing adds to the suspense as we cut back and forth between the different characters, and though there’s one secret weapon the audience was excluded from, that doesn’t mean Jace and Isabelle will have a few unexpected wrenches thrown into their plan.

It’s the kind of ensemble action sequence that keeps a smile plastered across your face, and results in fitting conversation between two characters that you might not have seen coming. Dark Clary’s learned some cool new tricks (a few of which good Clary may need to keep in her back pocket) and it’s fun to watch Jace and the team see her in action. Jace and Isabelle know they’re going to need to be a little extra drama in their fight technique if they’re going to get what they want, and there are some incredible visual moments as the twists continue to unfold.

Last week, we saw Isabelle tend to Simon when he was in a vulnerable place for his blood draw, and in Shadowhunters Season 3, Episode 20, there’s a scene Sizzy fans should absolutely look forward to where their roles are somewhat reversed, and Simon will need to step up to help Izzy. And Clace fans — be ready for several intense emotional relationship moments over the course of the episode.
