20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters

Someone needs to wrap these characters in cotton wool and keep them safe.


There were so many times in the Winter Finale that our favorite characters were in serious danger!

Alec, Jace, Alec again, Simon, Maia, Jace again, Magnus, Clary, Izzy, Luke, Simon again. The list goes ON AND ON! So check out the moments that made our hearts stop in Season 2 Episode 10.

1. Alec: When Madzie broke into the Institute and threw him into the elevator.

It turns out she was actually saving him, but how could we have known that at the time?

2. Jace: When he found out he could destroy the Soul Sword.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1003

Everyone knows that Jace is always willing to sacrifice himself to save others. That's just the kind of person he is!

3. Alec: When he got attacked by a bunch of Circle members.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1004

Obviously he's an incredible Shadowhunter, but that doesn't mean he can't be taken by surprise and lose his life! We never thought we'd say this, but...we were really glad to see Aldertree at that moment.

4. Simon: When he told Valentine that he was a terrible father.

As you may have noticed, old Val does not appreciate people criticizing his parental skills.

5. Simon: When Valentine literally cut his throat with a sword.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1006

Can you blame us for being scared? Valentine said our boy had about 40 minutes to live!

6. Aldertree: When he tried to defend his actions after getting Izzy hooked on Yin Fen.

Luckily, Alec was too focused on defeating Valentine to bother dealing with a corrupt Clave representative.

7. Maia: When she ran in front of Luke's car and then punched Jace.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1008

This girl must have some kind of death wish.

8. Clary: When Raphael and his Vampire cronies grabbed her and Magnus.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1009

If Jace hadn't stepped in...well, we don't want to think about what might have happened.

9. Clary/Jace: When they let Simon drink their blood and he couldn't stop.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1010

It's confusing because at the time we were worried about Clary dying. But then it turned out to be Jace in disguise. So who was really in danger?

10. Magnus: When he was approaching Madzie after she killed a bunch of people.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1011

Sure she's cute and small, but we've already seen that she has a dark side. And we thought she might try to hurt our favorite Warlock!

11. Jace and Simon: When they had to fight their way past Valentine and his Circle guards.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1012

Jace is always a great fighter, but he had been weakened by giving Simon his blood. It seemed like a close fight for a second!

12. Clary: When she got attacked by more Circle members while she was looking for Simon.

But our girl has mad skills! She did get captured, but she also kicked some serious ass. And that's what counts.

13. Izzy: When she saved Aldertree and Alec, but then almost fainted.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1014

The Yin Fen withdrawal makes her weak and we don't know what other terrible side effects it might have. Poor Isabelle!

14. Meliorn: When he got attacked by some members of the Circle.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1015

He was in pretty bad shape. But then he helped Luke and Maia later in the episode so we assume he's OK!

15. Jace: When he tried to sacrifice himself to destroy the Soul Sword!

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1016

Thank the Angel that it didn't work. Our hearts were SHREDDED just watching this scene.

16. Magnus: When Alec realized that all of the Downworlders in the Institute had been killed.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1017

This was the WORST moment of the entire episode. Don't play us like that, Shadowhunters writers.

17. Luke: When he tried to defeat his old Parabatai.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1018

It's possible that Luke blames himself for not stopping Valentine a long time ago.

18. Jace and Valentine: When they had that huge fight outside the Institute.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1019

At first we thought Valentine might hurt Jace like he hurt Luke. But then for a second it looked like Jace might kill his own fake father!

19. Magnus: When Alec went looking around the Institute and couldn't find him.

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1020

We were ALL terrified.

20. Simon: When the sun hit his face and we thought he was going to burn into ashes!

Shadowhunters - 20 Times We Thought People Were Going To DIE In The Winter Finale Of Shadowhunters - 1021

But he has somehow become immune to the sunlight? This guy was clearly born under a lucky star.

But sadly, we did lose a lot of Downworlders in this episode! At least Valentine has been apprehended and the Shadow World is safe.
