A closer look at Magnus’ wardrobe (10 times he aced the fashion game).

A closer look at Magnus’ wardrobe (10 times he aced the fashion game).

Magnus Bane can be described as many things: powerful, compassionate, kind-hearted, badass. Apart from that, he is clearly the best-dressed character on the show. SDN took a closer look at the many different styles Magnus has worn in the past two seasons, and eyed up some of our favorites.

Magnus has lived through more centuries than he likes to admit and has seen even more fashion trends come and go during that time. The costume designers on the show have made use of that fact several times during the past two seasons and included elements from many different eras into Magnus’ wardrobe. What’s also very interesting about Magnus’ style is that he seems to express himself through his wardrobe - and quite literally wears his heart on his sleeve more often than not.

With the help of our graphic designer and very own fashion expert Isabela, we took a trip down memory lane and examined some of the best creations worn by the High Warlock of Brooklyn.

1x01: Party at Pandemonium

If Magnus knows one thing, it’s how to make a first impression. This was the outfit he wore during his very first appearance on the show and saying he owned the moment would be the understatement of the century. The combination of suit jacket, half unbuttoned shirt and necklaces radiates confidence. As with many of Magnus’ outfits, there seems to be a hidden message in this supposedly random mixture of styles and patterns. The rough, almost reptile pattern of his pants poses a stark contrast to the soft shirt and the chains on his belt and jacket. The open buttons of that shirt could be interpreted as Magnus being open to new experiences and acquaintances, while his bare chest underneath shows some kind of vulnerability. At the same time, the chains around his neck represent that something is holding him back from becoming the open-hearted man we see him evolving into as the show progresses.

2x02: Black and white to travel the world

We first got to see this beauty of a shirt in episode 2x02, when Magnus and Simon travelled to India in order to find Camille and turn her in to the Clave - also known as the episode, where we learned that we probably don’t want to be on Magnus’ christmas gift list.

It’s a pretty casual outfit for Magnus, less elaborate than we are used to, but still very stylish. We are in love with the light fabric and the nice black and white pattern. Once Magnus arrives in India, we see him wear a matching jacket as well, which seems to be inspired by the so-called “justacorps” coats, a knee-length piece worn by men in the late 1700s. The high collar and the many buttons along the seams resemble those jackets quite a lot. Add a few necklaces and subtle eyeliner to that and you got yourself a toned down, yet very classy Magnus Bane look.

1x12: Army colors to fight for his love

In episode 12 of season 1, Magnus goes on a “business trip” with Clary and Jace in order to find his old friend Ragnor Fell. For this occasion he chooses a military green jacket alongside black pants, boots, gloves and a matching shirt. The green jacket was inspired by reefer jackets, which were popular in the late 1900s but ultimately have a much longer history. Originally worn by officers of the European and US navy, the reefer jacket was considered an outside type of coat until it eventually became very popular for business looks.

There are two possible interpretations for this particular choice of jacket: The first one would be a little act of rebellion, as Magnus didn’t approve at all of Alec’s engagement to Lydia. Showing up at the Institute dressed in something that was once considered unprofessional might be his own way of expressing that disapproval. On the other hand, the green jacket might also be an attempt of looking bold and detached - even though he clearly loosened his attire up a bit by adding the chains and spikes to the plain green jacket. Despite all his personal ties to Clary, her friends and the emotional turmoil they might be causing him, Magnus came to the Institute to do business, after all.

Obviously we like the first explanation better, which is partly due to a little detail we have left out so far: the color of the jacket. It’s a military green, commonly used for uniforms worn by people who were going into battle for something they believed to be right. And we sure love the idea that Magnus picked this particular color since he was also getting ready to fight - for Alec.

1x12: Epic outfits for epic moments

For one of the most memorable moments on the show so far, Magnus picked a suit with black pants, a shirt of the same color and a burgundy jacket made of velvet. While the suit per se is a classic cut and one of the most common types of suits, it’s the jacket that catches all the attention and brings the unique “Magnus factor” to this outfit. For the second time in episode 1x12, Magnus’ choice of color says a lot about how he feels. Burgundy can be associated with sophistication, power and ambition, which fits to the confident, powerful entrance he made in the middle of the ceremony. Apart from that, burgundy is also on the red color scheme, which is generally associated with passion and adrenaline, two emotions that describe the entire wedding scene oh so perfectly.

1x07: Gorgeous in gold

This outfit was worn during another two pretty significant episodes for Alec and Magnus: 1x06 and 1x07, when Alec stayed overnight after Magnus had exhausted himself too much trying to heal Luke. It seems that before the shadowhunters arrived and all hell broke loose, it was a pretty chill day at the Bane household - both the pants and the shirt seem to be made of very light, comfortable fabric, which is a perfect choice for just staying in and taking some time off.

The biggest eye catcher with this outfit is certainly the burgundy shirt with its intricate gold details. While it is really hard to tell what those details are made of, we narrowed it down to two possibilities. It could be either devoré, which is a French technique that uses chemicals in order to burn parts of the fabric to create patterns, or some kind of embroidery. Magnus combined the outfit with gold eyeliner, highlights in the same color and matching jewelry. Gold is usually associated with luxury and richness, but also with knowledge and light. Both interpretations suit the circumstances the outfit was seen in, as Magnus has both the skills to save Luke and to enlighten Clary about her family. And let’s face it - after hundreds of years on earth, he’s probably super rich as well.

2x20: High fashion upgraded

As much history as Magnus’ outfits may have sometimes, for the season finale, the costume designers went for something more recent. The gray jacket he wears while hunting down the dragon demons alongside Alec and Isabelle is from a recent John Varvatos collection. In order to fit Magnus’ taste, the jacket has been altered a bit and got new buttons and a few more details on the shoulders in order to give the jacket a tad of an army look. By the way, did we mention that we love the idea of Magnus altering his clothes as soon as he doesn’t like them anymore?

Due to the season 2 finale being such a fast, exciting episode, it was difficult to get a good look at Magnus’ outfit altogether. But the jacket in combination with the dark shirt and the layers gave us some serious 1700s vibes, and we are so here for it.

1x11: Chalk stripes for defending Izzy

In episode 1x11, Magnus was Izzy’s defense attorney when the Clave accused her of treason for saving Meliorn from the City of Bones. For that occasion, Magnus put on another one of his professional outfits: a well-cut, classic chalk stripe suit. Historically, this particular suit model was highly popular with businessmen and gangsters from the 1920 to 1940s. On the show, Magnus put it on to make the impression of a competent attorney who knows what he’s doing (not that we would ever doubt that) and maybe also to intimidate the Clave representatives along the way. And even though he ended up losing the case, as Izzy said - at least he lost it with style.

2x09: Stylish by the light of dawn

In the two-part winter finale of season 2, Magnus stunned with a combination of one of his signature band collar shirts and a black vest. The outfit got introduced to us in one of the first scenes of episode 2x09, where Alec and Magnus talk on the balcony of the loft (Remember the “They are not all your responsibility” - “But you are” dialogue? Yeah, that scene). Again, Magnus is not afraid to mix various patterns and combines a striped vest with a dotted shirt. The band collar of the shirt reminds us a bit of the Victorian style shirts worn by men in the 1800s. Another highlight is the subtle black handkerchief - a nice, formal contrast to the otherwise very fun and modern look. Definitely one of our favorites of season 2A.

2x15: Textile armor

2x15 was easily one of the most emotional episodes so far, especially for Magnus. We got to a deep look into his past and have yet to see him more vulnerable as we do in this episode. He has a lot of different emotions going through him, which he once again represents through his choice of clothes. The way his shirt is buttoned up all the way to the top can be interpreted as Magnus closing himself off to people as a consequence from the traumatic experiences he suffered through at the beginning of season 2B. If you pay attention to the previous episodes, Magnus doesn’t cover himself up that much prior to the body swap in episode 2x10. The first time we see him back with loose, open shirts is in 2x17, which is after he talked with Alec about his past. It seems like that conversation brought him some sort of closure for what he had to endure and helped him get back to his normal self. The white streak in his hair also points towards that theory, as the color is normally associated with cleanliness, so it might have been a way for Magnus to clear his mind of the bad memories from his past.

2x18: Purple and painful

Episode 2x18 continued the heavy, emotional theme that started in 2x15, which is also represented in Magnus’ outfit. Compared to 2x15, this episode is even more difficult on an emotional level, since it takes place right in the aftermath of his fight with Alec, Max being so terribly injured and all the flashbacks to when Alec and him were a lot happier and more carefree. On top of that, there’s the ever lurking threat of Valentine and Jonathan eradicating the entire downworld. It’s only understandable that Magnus tries to shield himself from all of this. The many layers used for this outfit - the shirt, the vest, the scarf and the heavy black jacket can be interpreted as a step in that direction. The dark purple that can be found in all of the pieces is associated with sadness and frustration, which is a perfect summary of Magnus’ emotions during that episode. Also, we know that Magnus likes to hide his emotions behind fancy clothes whenever they are getting too much to bear. This purple ensemble can be considered as an attempt to do just that, which makes it certainly more painful to look at, but no less beautiful.

All you need to know about “Shadowhunters”

All you need to know about “Shadowhunters”

Shadowhunters is an American supernatural drama TV show that is generally based on the popular book series The Mortal Instruments written by Cassandra Clare. The show was developed by Ed Decter and is being filmed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The first season of 13 episodes premiered on Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family) in January 2016 and the 20 episodes of its second season debuted a year later.

PRESENTATION

PRESENTATION

Shortly before resuming production in August 2016, showrunner Ed Decter decided to leave the franchise because of “creative differences”. Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin were later on named as replacements. Shadowhunters has been renewed for a third season that is scheduled to air in January 2018 and started production in August 2017.

As the writers’ room is under constant change to ensure variety and diversity in storytelling, the director’s chair is occupied by the amazing Matt Hastings (The Originals, Eureka), alongside other recurring and guest directors, such as Amanda Row (Hemlock Grove), Joshua Butler (The Vampire Diaries), Bille Woodruff (Honey 1-4, Empire), Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries) and many more.

While the viewers get to dive deeper into this supernatural universe with each episode, the showrunners and writers manage to skillfully touch on subjects that are real, contemporary and more relevant than ever - e.g. homophobia, racism and supremacist ideologies.

The bold approach and inclusion of currently stirring issues in our society, the widespread popularity within the fandom and the media, as well as the immensely talented, hard working cast and crew are only some of the reasons why Shadowhunters has been nominated for multiple awards.

In 2016, Matthew Daddario was named Choice Breakout TV star and accepted both his and - on behalf of the cast and crew of Shadowhunters - the Choice TV Breakout Show award.

The amazing and beautiful representation of the same sex relationship between Alec (Matthew Daddario) and Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) earned the show the GLAAD nomination and win for Best Outstanding Drama Series in 2017.

PLOT SEASON 1

PLOT SEASON 1

On the night of her eighteenth birthday, art student Clary Fray learns that she is a Shadowhunter. The Nephilim, humans born with angelic blood, dedicate their lives to protect the mundane world from demons. That same evening Jocelyn, Clary's mother, is abducted by a rogue group of Shadowhunters called the Circle, whose leader turns out to be no other than her presumed dead husband, Valentine Morgenstern.

With her mother missing, Clary turns to a family friend, Luke Garroway, only to seemingly be betrayed by him. Struck by yet another attack in the Fairchild home, a hurt and unconscious Clary is saved by the handsome Jace Wayland and taken to the city's Institute, home and base of the resident Shadowhunters. After a recovery, sped up by an applied rune - the power source of the Nephilim - she teams up with Jace and his adoptive siblings, Isabelle and Alec Lightwood, to find and save her mother while discovering powers she never knew she possessed.

Trying to uncover Clary’s lost memories to expedite the search, the group joins forces with the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. Clary and her loyal best friend, Simon Lewis, now find themselves living among warlocks, vampires, werewolves and seelies in a world within the human world hidden from prying eyes by glamours and spells.

Beginning a journey of self-discovery, Clary learns more about her past and what the future may hold for her, her family and both her old and newfound friends. As the season progresses and the relentless search for the Mortal Cup - one of the Mortal Instruments - and Jocelyn continues, relationships and unlikely friendships form while lifelong bonds are tested and strained.

PLOT SEASON 2

PLOT SEASON 2

In the wake of losing Jace and the Cup to Valentine, Clary and the team find themselves desperate to return the lost warrior home and prevent their enemy to create an army of new Shadowhunters using the Cup’s angelic powers. With her mother now back by her side, Clary finally gets the chance to learn more about her family’s past - her own memories destroyed alongside the demon that was keeping them safe.

Under the strict hand of their newly assigned Head of the Institute, the desperate search for Jace leads Alec to risk his own life in attempt to bring his Parabatai and brother home. The group, reunited with Jace, faces grief over the loss of one of their own, as the war against Valentine - now in possession of a second Mortal Instrument, the Soul Sword - reaches its peak when they learn the weapon, if activated, could destroy the entire Downworld.

Following a gruesome attack, Clary’s father gains control of the Institute and under false pretenses manages to force Jace’s hand which results in the immediate death of dozens of Downworlders. In the aftermath of Valentine’s assault and his capture, relief takes over as the depth of feelings are revealed, relationships strengthened and declarations made. Shadowhunters and Downworlders alike try to recover from the attack, all the while - unbeknownst to them - a new threat arose while Valentine’s regime was brought to an end.

Traitors in their midst and a summoning gone wrong leads to Morgenstern once again escaping captivity. While he comes together with the new opponent, the Institute rallies its resources to reveal the identity of their betrayer, racing against time to stop the pair from reaching their goal: collecting all Mortal Instruments to raise the angel Raziel and demand the elimination of all demon-blooded creatures.

As their enemies work together, the recent events caused a significant rift between Shadowhunters and Downworlders. With the dispute also affecting their relationships and friendships, the team has to try and mend their strained bonds as they fight off the ultimate threat.

ALEC LIGHTWOOD

ALEC LIGHTWOOD

Alec is the eldest child of the Lightwood family, brother of Isabelle and Max and son of Maryse and Robert Lightwood. His parabatai is Jace Herondale – whom his parents took in when they were young – since their teenage years. As a big brother, Alec is really close to his siblings and consider his duty to protect them at all costs.

Alexander was raised in an environment where duty to one’s family supersedes any type of personal desires. He grew up yearning to prove himself and wanting to make his parents proud while bringing honor to their family name. His one focus was to follow the rules and follow orders, secretly wishing that one day, he will be able to rule the Institute as its Head. Training being an important part in a Shadowhunter’s education, Alec is experienced in both armed and unarmed combat. Throughout his childhood, he found a deep interest in archery and grew to be highly skilled and quickly became an expert.

As Shadowhunters are known not to have the luxury of following their heart, Alec has never had a relationship. During his adolescence, he realizes his feelings for his parabatai which led him to hide his sexuality from his family for years. Being in a milieu where no one has ever openly displayed their homosexuality, Alec feels trapped and does not mention his sexual orientation.

Years later, Alec meets Magnus Bane, the High Warlock of Brooklyn, and their connection is beyond doubt. They slowly get to know each other, Alexander still being distant and careful not to display his feelings nor share his sexuality. As a bisexual man, Magnus shows Alec that it is okay to follow one’s heart and that he should not be scared of unveiling his true self.

MAGNUS BANE

MAGNUS BANE

Magnus is the High Warlock of Brooklyn, he is immortal and hundreds of years old. He is a proud “free-wheeling” bisexual and had around 17.000 relationships. Magnus is known for running the Pandemonium, a night club in New York and for his extravagant style. His distinct feature is his cat eyes - his warlock mark.

Magnus had a heavy childhood – his mother realizing that his cat eyes were a sign of him being part demon and taking her own life because of it. He is the one who found her lifeless body in her bed before his step-father did, the latter calling him an ‘abomination’. Magnus then burned him to death with his magic.

Magnus’ past is very onerous as he struggled with difficult relationships, one being with Camille Belcourt that started in the 1850s. He attempted suicide twenty years later but was stopped by Camille herself. This led to Magnus being grateful and caring deeply for Camille, becoming so attached to her and not realizing that she was emotionally manipulative and had disbelieving views of love. After a while, Camille broke his heart. Magnus didn’t have any partner since then, too heartbroken to throw himself into another relationship.

A century or so later, Magnus became the High Warlock of Brooklyn and created a name for himself. Being known in the Shadow World as well as the Downworld, Jocelyn Fairchild went to him so he could erase the memories of any supernatural events from his daughter, Clary Fray. A couple of years later, meeting Clary led him to meeting other Shadowhunters – Alec Lightwood included.

Alexander and Magnus started working together and their relationship started to grow - their connection being indubitable since they first met. Magnus helped Alec figure out his sexuality, the both of them falling for each other in the process – a scary step for him as he closed himself off feeling anything for anyone for centuries.

MALEC

MALEC

Magnus and Alec met through Clary – Clary needed Magnus’ help to regain her memories and tried to make a deal with him. Magnus told them that he fed her memories to a memory demon for safekeeping. They tracked Magnus to his lair where he’s been attacked. Magnus battled a member of the Circle and Alec joined him to help.

The pair connected instantly, Alec smitten from the beginning. They started seeing each other, no one from their worlds knowing about it. Magnus opened up to Alec, the latter fighting his feeling for Magnus, telling himself that he could not follow his heart but that he had to stay true to his family name.

Alec ended up accepting his feelings and caring deeply for Magnus, the two of them working as a team. After Valentine stole the Soul Sword, the Downworlders were on high alert as the sword could exterminate them. The Shadowhunters managed to lock Valentine up, the Clave said that had retrieved the Soul Sword – which was a lie and meant the Downworlders were still at risk. Magnus learned about the Soul Sword missing in an undesired way, leading to him and Alec having a fight and taking a break in their relationship.

Magnus and Alec realized they couldn’t live without one another since their fights, their love too strong for this to keep them apart.

The Shadowhunters Tuesday takeovers in a nutshell!

The Shadowhunters Tuesday takeovers in a nutshell!

After months of radio silence and little to no behind the scenes material, the Shadowhunters Tuesday Takeovers have returned. And while the fandom couldn’t be happier about that, not everyone can keep up with what happens during the takeovers at all times. But don’t worry if you can’t - SDN got you covered.

Starting this week, we will keep track of the takeovers and keep an eye out for any relevant season three information and put it into this article. The article will be updated after each takeover, so make sure to stop by every now and then in order to not miss anything.

#EmeraudeTakeover

September 26th, 2017: #EmeraudeTakeover
The first one to take over the Shadowhunters’ social media accounts was Emeraude Toubia - who plays Isabelle Lightwood. While filming in downtown Toronto, Emeraude took some time off her lunch break to talk to the fans via Facebook live chat.
Here is what she revealed about season three:

Plenty of Malec
Isabelle will have a lot of scenes with both Alec and Magnus. While the Lightwood siblings getting screen time together might not be a big surprise, we certainly loved that Izzy and Magnus are going to get more bonding time. Alec and Magnus are going to have a lot of scenes as well, according to Emeraude “they are going to be everywhere”. We can’t say we have a problem with that.

Exciting new characters
Season three will bring on a couple of new characters, and while we already know from the season two finale that one of them is going to be Lilith, most of the others are still unknown. Emeraude teased the casting announcements were going to blow the fans away and mentioned during her takeover, that an important new season three character had their first day of filming.

Shadowhunters at NYCC
Just before the end of her live chat, she answered a question about New York Comic Con, more particularly about who will attend the panel. Emeraude wasn’t sure yet, only revealed that not the entire cast would make it since some had to stay in Toronto to keep working on season three. By now, the participants have been revealed: Katherine McNamara (Clary Fray), Isaiah Mustafa (Luke Garroway), Alisha Wainwright (Maia Roberts) and Matthew Daddario (Alec Lightwood) are going to be there alongside producers Darren Swimmer, Todd Slavkin and Matt Hastings. Let’s hope for some good season three spoilers.

The Shadowhunters NYCC panel is scheduled for Saturday, October 7th at 12 pm ET (6PM European Central Time) at Madison Square Garden. SDN will be covering the event.

#AlbertoTakeover

October 4th, 2017: #AlbertoTakeover
The second week of the takeovers was all about our dear Simon Lewis, played by Alberto Rosende. Alberto kept the fandom entertained with lots of pictures from set, and sat down for a 25-minute live chat where he revealed quite a few details about what we can expect for the new season.

Trouble ahead
Regarding what the fans can expect for season three, Alberto teased that with Shadowhunters, things always get worse before they get better. He said that in his eyes, season three was going to be a lot scarier than season one and two, with more heartbreak and problems that are going to test the characters time and time again. Addressing Simon’s arc in particular, Alberto said that there was a lot of change ahead for him in terms of places and people, which might be tough at first, but would eventually help him grow as a person.

New music by Simon
What we already learned in the first two seasons, is that not only is Simon an NYU student and the dorkiest vampire ever, but also a talented musician. We already got to hear Alberto’s beautiful singing voice twice last season: first when Simon played “Fragile World” during his gig at the Hunter’s Moon in 2x13 and then again in 2x17, when Maia walks in on Simon playing “Royal Blue” on his guitar and they both decide to take things slow in their relationship. Alberto revealed that those two songs were not the last ones we are going to hear and that he was actually recording a new single the day of his takeover.

Rough times for vampires
Raphael and Simon’s relationship has had its fair share of ups and downs ever since they met and that is not going to change that fast. Regarding the development of those two fan favorites, Alberto said that it was very difficult. With Raphael being busy leading the New York vampire clan and Simon not always understanding how taxing that task is, there’s lots of material for more conflicts ahead. Alberto had a lot of praise for David Castro, saying that he’d killed his scenes in 3x04. If that meant that there are going to be a few major Raphael moments in the new season, we are so here for it.

#HarryTakeover

October 10th, 2017: #HarryTakeover
The Tuesday after New York Comic Con, it was time for everyone’s favorite warlock to take over the Shadowhunters’ social medias. Harry Shum Jr started his takeover right after he came off a night shoot for 3x05 and took us on a little tour around the outside area of the Shadowhunters set in Toronto.

After spending the first couple of minutes of his takeover musing about possible names if there ever was a Shadowhunters theme park (our personal favorite was “Chairman Meow’s Haven“, if we’re honest), Harry revealed that shooting of season 3A is halfway done.
Unfortunately, he didn’t reveal a lot of details about the third season, just that there are plenty of emotional scenes waiting for us: funny and dramatic ones, but also some that are going to make us cry.

What Harry could offer, however, was a little preview into Magnus’ arc this upcoming season. He said that we will see Magnus evolving as a character and also get a deeper glimpse into his past. This fits pretty well with the rumor that Magnus’ father Asmodeus will make an appearance this season, as well as the already confirmed guest starring of Javier Muñoz as Magnus’ old enemy Lorenzo Rey.

Introducing The Shirt™ (x)
Since Harry’s live chat happened right at the beginning of his takeover, he took the rest of the day to treat us to some insights on set life via instagram, such as a quick walk through Magnus’ new study, which was unfortunately just too quick to really see anything.

After that, we got a glimpse at the new, fancier version of Alec that Matt teased at NYCC last weekend in the form of several pictures of him in a dark shirt we had never seen before. While we here at SDN may still be unsure about whether that shirt was black, blue or purple, we all very much agree that it looked absolutely glorious. The Shadowhunters’ costume department sure know how to upgrade someone’s wardrobe. And how to kill the entire SDN team in the process. But that’s a story for another time.

#AlishaTakeover

October 17th, 2017: #AlishaTakeover
This week it was Alisha Wainwright’s takeover, whom we all know as sassy bartender and badass werewolf Maia Roberts. Alisha started her takeover with a selfie from the gym, later on we got to catch up with her while she was getting her hair and makeup done. Her live chat didn’t happen until she was done filming, but it had a special guest: Alberto Rosende - who had his takeover two weeks ago - stopped by for the last couple of minutes.

Unfortunately, Alisha couldn’t talk much about the new season, but she did drop a few hints here and there. One of them was the fact that she was filming with Alberto on Tuesday, so more Maia/Simon scenes are coming our way. Although being the most “mundane” couple in Alisha’s eyes, she teased that those two are in for some trouble this season, and that “all we can hope for is that their happiness continues”. Seems like there are rough times ahead for Simon and Maia.

More werewolf scenes and backstories
Times might be less tough for Izzy and Maia as those two might get to know each other better in season three. Alisha kept her answer very vague when a fan asked about Maia and Izzy, but from what we gathered, these two are going to get some more screen time, as well as Maia and some other shadowhunters that have yet to be determined. Hence why the Izzy/Maia scenes remain unverified info.

Luckily there was also something Alisha could already confirm: Season three is going to dive deeper into the world of the werewolves. She said that there would be plenty of werewolf backstory, and that the scenes were going to be “wonderful”. With now two main characters who are werewolfs, we guess it is safe to say that those scenes were long overdue. We can’t wait to see them.

That is all you need to know - for now. No matter whose takeover is next, there’s a good chance we might get some more season three spoilers - so make sure to catch up with us next week!
