Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara) still cannot find her rightful place in the Shadow World in Shadowhunters Season 2. In next week’s episode, the Clave is getting more desperate. The organization issues a “shoot to kill” order for Jace Wayland (Dominic Sherwood) and his siblings, Alec (Matthew Daddario) and Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia), race to get to their adopted brother before it is too late.
Shadowhunters Season 2: A Door Into The Dark
Shadowhunters Season 2 Episode 2 is titled A Door Into The Dark. It will air on Jan. 9, 2017. Here is the synopsis released by Freeform:
“The hunt is on for Jace Wayland, and Alec and Isabelle hope to reach him before the rest of the Shadowhunters do. With orders from the Clave of ‘shoot to kill,’ the Lightwood siblings must act fast. Also on his own search, Simon turns to Magnus for help when he finds himself at odds with both Raphael and Aldertree.”
As for Clary, the new Shadowhunter feels lost without Jace. With everyone too busy looking for Jace or making plans to suppress the threat of Valentine, Clary struggles to find where she belongs in the Shadowhunter world. However, she does not have a mundane life to go back to either.
Darker Jace and Crossing Over to the Horror Genre
Meanwhile, Sherwood talked to EW ahead of the Shadowhunters Season 2 premiere on Monday. The 26-year-old talked about the changes with Jace. It was after the series revealed that he is the son of Valentine.
“Jace is so lost that all he has to ground himself in is who he knows he is,” Sherwood explained. While the character, for now, is torn between who he is and who he was raised to become, Sherwood is confident that Jace can find himself back to the right side of the war.
The young actor even compared his character to Jack Bauer; Jace will always strive to do his duty no matter how he ends up looking. Sherwood assured that in the show’s sophomore run, fans will find Jace loyal to his duty as a Shadowhunter.
Moreover, there will be a few changes under new showrunners, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer. For one, the second season will borrow a few elements from the horror genre instead of a more teen fantasy feel. “[S]ome of the stuff that we had on set was actually quite terrifying,” the actor commented.
Shadowhunters Season 2 Episode 2 A Door Into The Dark will air on Jan. 9 at 8 p.m. (EST) on Freeform.
