1. Isabelle nails Shadowhunting in heels.

We're living for this look. 

2. Raphael has brought a dead Simon to the Institute.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1002
Nooooooo!

3. Raphael informed the gang that Camille killed Simon and he was now in a transitional state as a Fledgling.

4. Clary could bring Simon back, but only as a vampire.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1006
Wow, Simon really can't catch a break.

5. Valentine was not happy that Luke had saved the day...again!

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1007
Who said chivalry is dead?

6. The Lightwoods are in the Clave's bad books...

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1009

7. We thought Valentine had made his way into the Institute...

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1011

8. But it turned out to be the Clave's envoy, Lydia Branwell.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1012

Impressive rune and glamour skills, Lydia.

9. Lydia was impressed with Alec's reflexes...

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1013

10. Isabelle, however, was not impressed with Lydia.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1014

If looks could kill...

11. Valentine sent some really ugly dudes to take down Luke at the Jade Wolf.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1015

Moisturize! Like, it's not hard. 

12. It didn't matter, because Luke and his werewolf pack were on it!

13. Clary visited Simon's mom to try and explain what had happened to him but couldn't bring herself to do it.

14. Lydia paid a visit to Luke to see what went down.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1020
Luke insisted that whatever attacked them was stronger than a regular Forsaken.

15. Alec found out that his parents were once members of the Circle!

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1021

16. The body of Valentine's dead soldier was taken to the Institute for Magnus and Isabelle to inspect.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1022

17. And Magnus wasn't exactly thrilled by this...

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1023

18. Alec was topless.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1025

That is all.

19. And Magnus really appreciated it.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1026

As did we Mr. Bane, as did we.

20. Alec is beginning to worry that his whole life has been a lie and that he needs to start doing things for himself.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1027

21. Camille was back and was a total horror. Again.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1028

22. However, Clary packs one hell of a punch!

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1029

23. The vampires realized that Camille has been breaking the Accords and turned against her!

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1030

24. Clary has decided she just can't lose Simon...

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1031
And that means allowing him to be reborn as a vampire.

25. Her grave digging skills aren't bad either!

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1033
She should let her best friends become vampires more often.

26. The Clave are planning to remove the Lightwoods as Heads of the Institute.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1034

27. Alec and Lydia are getting married!

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1035
Don't freak out okay! Just breathe.

28. Clary's first rule of being a mundane is that love makes you stronger.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1037

29. When you are reborn as a vampire, you get like super hungry.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1038

30. Valentine gave the Forsaken angel blood so that they could break into the Institute!

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1039

31. Don't worry though, Hodge totally kicked their ass.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1040

32. Simon can recite every line from every Nicolas Cage movie.

Shadowhunters - 33 Unbelievable Things We Learned From Episode Eight - 1041

Respect.

33. Oh, and he is now a vampire by the way.
