The mid-season premiere starts strong with the first appearances of Sebastian, Ollie, Azazel, and more, a glimpse of Dom’s bright red underwear, and the shocking realization that despite all the drama and chaos in the 24 episodes so far, only two weeks have passed in the Shadow World.

At long last, our very own Matthew Daddario (AKA THE Alec Lightwood) has joined Kat and Dom today for a much-anticipated Shadowhunters reunion. Kat tries dutifully to keep the conversation on track about Shadowhunters, Alec’s motivations, and his relationship with Magnus, but mostly they crack jokes and laugh at the word “duty”.

The tension is getting tighter than Kat’s corsets in today’s rewatch as Clary and Luke find themselves at odds over Cleo’s arrival. How far will Clary go to prove she’s right?

On today’s episode, Kat and Dom sit down for a bit of a somber rewatch… that is, until they get to the scene that had to be completely cut from the episode because they couldn’t control their laughter! They also debate what is and is not a red flag from Iris Rouse, the little known rule of being a Shadowhunter and the real reason Clary had to get a brand new bedspread.

The Institute is under attack today, and Kat and Dom are here for it. They take us through the episode that gave Dom an extended stay in the City of Bones, Clary has a smoke demon to clear from the Institute (where no one seems to notice things like smoke demons…), and a very hasty Matt Daddario that had Kat scurrying after him.
