Shadowhunters: Clary overlooking Simon's sudden powers could spell trouble
Throughout Tuesday's Shadowhunters, Clary was busy fighting werewolves, learning Luke is a werewolf and working alongside Alec, the one person who doesn't seem to care for her. Well, in between all of the continued madness surrounding Clary's newfound life as a Shadowhunter, Simon appears to be slowly transforming into a vampire.
While helping Clary and Alec's search for a box of Jocelyn's at the Fray/Fairchild's former home, Simon illustrated some new and badass skills, or should I say powers? He can now jump over really high walls with speed, has super strength and has the "sight," aka can see runes only visible to Shadowhunters, not mundanes.
Well, I'm pretty sure Simon is no longer a mundane. As exciting as it is to see Simon in action and as someone who is clearly capable of taking care of and saving himself, I'm also concerned for his well-being. After being kidnapped by vampires, it seems like Simon is mimicking the symptoms of vampires. Remember that time he stared at Clary's neck thirstily? Yeah, that's not a good sign.
Now, it still remains unclear how one exactly transitions into a vampire, but the way Simon is acting, it sure seems like that's the direction he's headed.
With that said, when do you think Clary is going to notice that her BFF is acting strange and all of a sudden possesses skills that he didn't before? Don't get me wrong, I understand that Clary has a lot on her mind and is busy trying to save her mother, but how does she not suspect that something is very wrong with Simon? Not even Alec really batted an eye at Simon's newfound abilities. Seriously, how are they ignoring what's right in front of them?
If Clary doesn't start paying attention to Simon (and stop believing that he just has a "cold"), she is going to be very sorry when he goes over to the dark side. I have a feeling it's going to be too late for Clary to save Simon before he officially turns into a vampire.
Soon enough, Clary is going to have a handful of loved ones in need of rescuing. Well, if anyone can do just that, my money is on Clary.
