Review – Shadowhunters
episode 218 “Awake, Arise, or Be Forever Fallen”

What can we say about last Monday’s episode of Shadowhunters other than, holy shit! We were literally at the edge of our seats for this riveting, passionate, soul stirring, heartbreaking, utterly devastating emotional journey that lifted us to the highest highs then sent us crashing down to the lowest of lows. Not only did we experience these overwhelming feelings during the show’s 43 heart racing minutes, but it continued on into the days that followed. Leaving no doubt in our minds that Awake, Arise, or Be Forever Fallen, written by Jamie Gorenberg and directed by Amanda Row, will go down as our favorite episode to date, and quite possibly of the entire series! Our team has been rocked to the core by the events that unfolded between Magnus and Alec, so much so we’ve barely been able to function. Sitting here five days after the show has aired we’re still unable to fully process our thoughts and form coherent opinions about what we saw. This is surely a testament to just how amazing the episode was. To say that it was absolute perfection and everything we’ve ever wanted in life, still seems like a vast understatement. But we have to find a way to make it through this review somehow, so buckle up and we’ll start at the very beginning!

Interview with Alberto Rosende (Simon Lewis)

Interview with Alberto Rosende (Simon Lewis)

Last weekend members of the ShumDario News team attended The Italian Institute convention in Milan, Italy, which featured several stars from Freeform’s hit sci-fi/fantasy series Shadowhunters. While at the convention our team had the privilege of sitting down to interview several members of the cast to ask them a few questions. In this first interview we spoke with Alberto Rosende about his character’s journey so far this season, and we were lucky enough to have Katherine McNamara join in for part of it as well. They were both an absolute pleasure to speak with and we loved hearing their insights about Simon and Clary.

episode 215 “A Problem of Memory”

Shadowhunters episode 2×15, “A Problem of Memory”, took a dark turn down the long and difficult road through Magnus Bane’s tragic past. Many fans were familiar with his backstory, but seeing it play out on screen added so much more depth and realism to his painfully emotional journey. We felt our own hearts break for him as the events from his childhood were brought to light. Written by Allison Rymer and directed by Peter DeLuise this episode contained so many great moments between Magnus and Alec as a couple, as well as their individual stories, it turned out to be one of our favorites so far this season.

episode 214 “The Fair Folk”

Shadowhunters episode 14, The Fair Folk, aired last Monday night on Freeform, with a new sheriff in town! Our favorite Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood (Ok we admit we might be a little bit biased here), made his somewhat controversial debut as the new Head of the New York Institute. Bringing a whole slew of new leadership ideas to unite Shadowhunters and Downworlders in the aftermath of what was nearly a war. Boy he really shook things up! We loved seeing this stronger, tougher, more dominant Alec in action and we couldn’t have been more proud. Written by Taylor Mallory and directed by Chris Grismer, we are now nearly to the halfway point of season 2B, and the plot is definitely thickening.

episode 213 “Those of Demon Blood”

Episode 13 of the second season of Freeform’s Shadowhunters, titled Those of Demon Blood, aired Monday night promising to be the most controversial episode to date. Written by Zac Hug and directed by Michael Goi, our favorite sci-fi drama dipped its toes into some pretty hefty real-world topics that surely resonated with viewers around the globe. Tackling social and political issues such as prejudice, racial profiling, discrimination and equality, we saw the fantasy genre elevate into something very relevant to today.

Review – Shadowhunters
episode 212 “You Are Not Your Own”

Shadowhunters episode 12, You Are Not Your Own, aired Monday night on Freeform and we are still trying to recover from it! Directed by Billie Woodruff and written by Jamie Gorenberg this intense roller coaster ride of pain and heartbreak shocked us to our core. Even with prior knowledge of the body swap between Valentine and Magnus nothing could have prepared us for the emotional journey we were going to experience this week. To say that we were greatly affected would be the understatement of the decade.
