SPOILER WARNING: Details of Shadowhunters Season 3 discussed liberally below!
After last week’s Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, there were a whole heap of questions left unanswered. And while our exclusive clip for this week’s episode may not provide them all, it’ll likely make you all the more excited to find out what’s going on in Episode 4 on Tuesday night.
Last week’s Season 3, Episode 3 of the Freeform series, “What Lies Beneath,” featured the unmasking of Lilith’s mysterious owl-masked henchman. While we spent the majority of the episode thinking the winged warrior might be Clary’s evil brother, Jonathan, he was ruled out after Izzy whipped the owl-faced fiend, with nary an electrum reaction in sight.
And nary a Jace in sight, either. Not until the episode’s shocking ending, which showed none-other than Jace behind the owl’s freaky mask! Shocker!
Now, in this exclusive clip from this week’s fourth episode, we see that Jace, or at least someone who looks a whole lot like glamorous Jace, comes knocking on the mother of demon’s door:
Lillith and her pristine white lilies are there to greet Jace, though a warm reception it is not. Still, she comments on the beautiful things that such “an ugly and despicable species” can make, but her mood changes for the worse when Jace reports on the whereabouts of “the girl.”
To which Jace replies: “Right as I finished, the Shadowhunters, they fought me off, and took her with them.”
Which makes Lillith none too happy, if we are to judge by the withering state of said lilies!
But what does it all mean? We’ll know soon enough when Shadowhunters Season 3, Episode 4, “Thy Soul Instructed,” debuts on Freeform Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET.
