Officially fan of Shadowhunters!
26 February 2016 | by punkyashiSee all my reviews

Sure the first few episodes had me skeptic about this TV show (also owing to the fact that I've read the books!) However, I think it has finally found itself. I loved this episode! Kat definitely got better at acting (her acting is now very less cringe-worthy. Loving the TV Jace (yes he is kind of different than the book jace but he's still just as awesome). Alec.. Do i need to add more? *__* (love love love!) Emeraude's doing Izzy real time justice (finally!). The dialog is better now ( I added some quotes in the Quotes section,feel free to check them out^^). Overall, this was a nice episode. The only thing that needs big time revamping is the special effect (but then,this is TV..). I am hooked and looking forward to the next episode! xo
