Ouch.

2. So they send Victor Aldertree to take control.

Victor is super handsome and charming. Maybe the Clave made a solid choice?

3. And he's totally committed to finding Jace.

This guy just gets better and better!

4. But he also seems a bit suspicious...

We don't like where this is going.

5. And then he reveals what he really thinks about Jace!

Izzy's reaction sums up all our feelings. We've never turned on a character so quickly!

6. Aldertree has no intention of saving Jace after all.

What happened to not leaving a Shadowhunter behind?

7. He won't even let Clary go and help find Jace.

Does he expect her to sit back and do nothing?

8. And he bans all Downworlders from the Institute, including Luke and Simon.

After all they've done to help, this seemed totally unnecessary and cruel.

9. So our first impressions of Victor are pretty terrible.

Even though he looks really great in a suit.

10. But maybe he can change our minds. Remember how we all felt about Lydia when she first arrived at the Institute?

We definitely respect her a lot more now.

11. And is this shot from the trailer a clue that he and Izzy are going to have some kind of relationship?

We'll have to wait and see...
