1. For just one glorious moment we thought Valentine was dead.
Not to be morbid, but that would have solved a LOT of problems.
2. Getting to see the INCREDIBLE new gadgets at the Institute.
This is some real futuristic hologram stuff! We are loving it.
3. Jocelyn trying to mend her relationship with Clary.
Step one: wake up. Step two: stop lying. Step three: mother-daughter manicures? Just an idea.
4. Jocelyn finding out that Simon is a Vampire.
Play it cool, Fairchild.
5. Magnus really wanting to help Alec in any way that he can.
You know what always helps? Kissing! Just saying.
6. Lydia's reaction when Mama Lightwood called her out in front of everyone.
"Bite me, Maryse." - Lydia, probably.
7. Valentine rolling his eyes at Jace for refusing to try his pasta sauce.
Can't a father eat a delicious meal with his son after torturing him for a few hours? *sigh*
8. Jace getting his own life-sized hologram!
OK, we get that this was a very serious and intense moment. But you can't deny that you now want a revolving Jace hologram for your bedroom.
9. Luke encouraging Simon to tell Clary about his secret crush on her.
There is literally a WAR going on and Luke just wants #Climon to happen. He totally ships it.
10. Izzy turning her signature snake whip into a badass staff.
Has she done that before? Did we know she could do that? Are those available online?
11. Clary showing off her mad Shadowhunter fighting skills.
And look how proud Izzy is! LOOK AT HER!
12. Alec standing up for Jace and telling Maryse what he really thinks.
Remember in Season 1 when all he wanted was his parents' approval? Our baby has come so far.
13. Clary totally forgetting she had transformed into Aldertree.
She was seriously confused by Luke's attitude for a sec.
14. Magnus doing some kind of magic martial arts routine on his balcony.
Not wearing a shirt. Just out there showing off his moves while SHIRTLESS. Look at his arms. LOOK AT THEM!
15. Also Magnus refusing to let Alec boss him around.
He's taking none of your sass, Lightwood. You are in the dog house right now.
16. EM... THIS MOMENT? THIS BEAUTIFUL ROMANTIC MOMENT!
Magnus may be hundreds of years old, but Alec has awoken something brand new in him. ❤️
17. Alec being so brave and humble and admitting he was wrong.
It would be worth fighting with him to get that kind of apology.
18. Simon and Clary reminiscing about their friendship while locked in the boathouse.
We want more of this in Season 2! Not the part about being trapped, but the bonding time! What a pair of cuties.
19. Magnus blocking Alec from pain while he tries to track Jace with the Parabatai rune.
He would do anything to protect "pretty boy" from harm. #RelationshipGoals
20. Izzy defending her brother and taking a stand against Aldertree.
You can't keep a good woman down. And you definitely can't keep this woman silent in the face of injustice.
21. Lydia trying to change a corrupt system by working from the inside.
She knows the Clave has issues and she wants to fix them. This beautiful angel has come so far since Season 1.
22. Jace getting into a fight with the Vampires and literally slaying them!
It was so dramatic. And also oddly beautiful...
23. Simon turning a really intense moment into a hilarious one.
Yes we're worried about Jace. But we also love Simon's sassy side!
