Pardon us while we dry the remaining tears from our keyboards for this next review as we look inside Shadowhunters episode three, “Parabatai Lost” which aired this past Monday night on Freeform. A heart wrenching emotional roller coaster from start to finish that has literally left us speechless as we contemplate the deep underlying themes of friendship, brotherhood, and love between two Parabatai caught in the middle of a desperate crisis. Themes that were often woven into a tight braid where one cannot be so easily separated from the other. The bond has proven to be deeper and more complex than we originally thought.

The second episode from the new season of Shadowhunters,”A Door Into the Dark“, aired Monday night to a hungry audience anxious to see if the latest installment could meet the same level of intensity as the first. And boy did it ever! Right out of the gate we again see a deeply disturbed and frustrated Alec Lightwood, played by Matthew Daddario, attempting to punch away his pain in the training room. He and the other Shadowhunters still have not been able to locate his missing parabatai Jace Wayland, played by Dominic Sherwood. Alec’s killer blows are interrupted by Clary Fray, played by Katherine McNamara, who quickly becomes his next symbolic punching bag as he lays into her with one hurtful statement after another. The discord between them only exacerbated by Jace’s departure. The abuse doesn’t stop there as he lashes out at her again in the command center letting her know that she doesn’t belong in their world and she never will. This tirade results in Clary’s departure from the Institute and decision to return to her mundane life. Matthew Daddario delivers another strong emotional performance as he brings the audience deeper inside Alec’s agony. We witness first hand just how distraught and tormented he is, even more so than we saw in episode one.

episode 201 “This Guilty Blood”

The highly anticipated season two premiere of Shadowhunters aired last Monday night on Freeform with a jaw dropping new look and feel to the show that definitely didn’t disappoint the anxiously awaiting fans. With stunning new visual effects and a darker, grittier adult theme, gone were the brightly colored more whimsical looks of the previous season. One fan described the comparison between the two as “Wizards of Waverly Place transformed into The Walking Dead”, which quite aptly surmised the dramatic change, especially after a deluge of blood and death. With 1.19 million viewers tuning in for episode one titled “This Guilty Blood”, it far surpassed the season one finale last spring. This boost will no doubt bring legions of new support to the amazing Shadow World that has been so lovingly created by an immensely talented team of writers, producers, cast and crew.

Peering into the Shadows:
A look toward season 2

As time draws near for the season two premiere of Freeform’s new hit TV show Shadowhunters, fans are on the edge of their seats with enthusiastic anticipation. Having survived a long and arduous nine month hiatus the prospects of what has been called a “darker and more emotional journey” for the treasured characters of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter Chronicles has worked fans into a frenzy of excitement. Having built a strong and passionate fandom community on social media in a very short amount of time, the Shadowhunters fans have already been named the Most Social TV Show of 2016 by Variety Magazine in their “freshman” category beating out heavy hitters like Lucifer and Stranger Things. As well as ranking #4 on Tumblr’s list of Top TV Show – Live Action, above mega-hits like The Walking Dead and Teen Wolf. Suffice it to say that no one can doubt the undying support and devotion the show has assembled this year with a combination of longtime book fans merging with new fans to the Shadow World.
