9 Times People Stood Up To Aldertree In The Most Inspirational Ways Possible

We were so proud of our Shadowhunters!


As soon as Victor Aldertree arrived at The Institute, we knew he was trouble. He banned Luke and Simon from the building, hunted down Jace, got Izzy addicted to Yin Fen, tortured Raphael, and tried to manipulate Alec! But thankfully, he didn't get everything his own way. Check out the GIFs below to see all the times when our guys fought back.

1. When Magnus smuggled Alec out of The Institute by disguising Raj as him against Aldertree's orders.

No one tells the High Warlock of Brooklyn what to do.

2. When Clary pretended she couldn't remember where Jace was.

Aldertree was biased against Jace from the start because of his Demon blood, which we now know Jace doesn't even have!

3. When Jace ruined Aldertree's notes.

This didn't really achieve much, but it made us feel better that Jace wasn't letting Aldertree control him.

4. When Aldertree asked Izzy out and she completely rejected him.

Her reaction was really cold-blooded and we loved every second of it.

5. When Alec took control of the Institute.

For once, Aldertree had to follow someone else's orders.

6. And then gave Aldertree this little smirk.

We fell in love with Alec just a little bit more when this happened.

7. When Izzy lied to him to protect Clary.

He should have known she would never put Clary in danger.

8. And when she finally stopped taking his Yin Fen.

We're pretty sure Aldertree got her hooked on it so that he could control her.

9. When Alec wasn't impressed just because Aldertree did something good for once.

After what he did to Izzy, it's going to take a lot for Aldertree to get into Alec's good books.
