1. The first time we met her!
She just marched into the Institute and immediately insulted Izzy's outfit!
2. When she refused to use Clary's last name!
Sorry, but if Maryse wants to call you Fairchild then you just have to deal with it.
3. When she wouldn't let Alec go on a mission with his sister.
And then implied that Izzy might have messed up the Clave's relationship with the Seelie! As if.
4. When she blamed Clary for all the trouble her children had been getting into!
Well, Clary was involved but it wasn't really her fault.
5. That time she encouraged her son to break another kid's nose.
Interesting parenting style...
6. When she did not react well to Izzy interrupting her conversation with Robert!
"It's not your concern." Ouch.
7. When she planned to force her son to get married to make a political alliance!
All she cared about was family honor!
8. When she said that Izzy couldn't attract the right husband!
Em, excuse us, Izzy can get any guy she wants.
9. When she called a family meeting to scold Izzy and Alec!
And blamed them for ruining her reputation.
10. When Alec found out that Maryse used to be a member of the Circle!
You've got to be pretty ruthless to join that organization...
11. That time Magnus gatecrashed her son's wedding!
She looked like she was ready to take him down! Even Hodge was afraid.
12. When she refused to be happy for Alec!
And kept insulting his amazing boyfriend. She is not a woman you want to cross!
Have you ever been afraid of Mama Lightwood?
