Freeform’s Shadowhunters continues its season three run with episode three airing on April 3, 2018. Season three episode two found the warlocks dealing with the hijacking of their magical powers. That problem led to Magnus revealing to Alec that his father is Asmodeus, the most powerful prince in Hell. Meanwhile, some weird twist of fate found Jace taking Clary on a date only to wind up seated next to Simon and Maia. And that unfortunate seating arrangement led to Jace revealing he and Maia had slept together.
Clary finally asked Jace why she’s the only woman he doesn’t seem to want to sleep with. Jace provided a romantic answer that included a description of the key things he loves about Clary. However, it didn’t include the revelation that he keeps having visions of killing her.
Season three episode two ended with Simon squaring off against werewolves. The poor guy was just trying to practice on his guitar when he was attacked, but fortunately he had a secret weapon at his disposal. Simon (and the audience) learned the brand the Seelie Queen placed on his forehead is there to keep him safe. When threatened, Simon was able to deflect the attack using a powerful bolt of light.
The season three cast includes Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood, Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway, and Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane. Guest stars include Alisha Wainwright as Maia Roberts and David Castro as Raphael Santiago. The series is executive produced by Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, McG, Matt Hastings, Mary Viola, Martin Moszkowicz and Robert Kulzer.
The “What Lies Beneath” Plot: The Shadowhunters try to track down the new imposing threat, while Jace has a suspicion that Jonathan is back and behind the mundane attacks. Simon tries to figure out what The Seelie Queen did to him during his time in the glade. Alec decides to host a Lightwood family dinner at Magnus’ house after a surprising visit from Maryse.
