Clary: Stop!
Valentine: Oh good, you're awake. Just in time to see history being made.
Clary: You killed Jace. How could you?!
Valentine: He certainly would've stopped me if I hadn't. Of course, I love that boy, just like I love Jocelyn. See, their deaths were necessary sacrifices if I'm gonna save humanity.
Clary: Don't lie to me. You've never loved anyone but yourself.
Valentine: If that were true, then why do you think I've kept you alive?

Alec: Magnus, I...I don't think I can live without you.
Magnus: I thought I had to choose between you and the Downworld, but I don't. A wise man once told me relationships take effort.
Alec: That was an understatement.
Magnus: You know what's not an understatement...
[They kiss]

Jace: How could you side with him?
Malakai: There's only one side...the side of the angels. Valentine is only doing what the Clave has been trying to accomplish for centuries: eradicate demons.
Clary: No! No, the angels would never be in favor of killing millions of innocent Downworlders along with demons.
Malakai: When Razeal created the first Shadowhunter, there was no such thing as Downworlders. But over the centuries, disgusting half-breeds emerged. Warlocks, vampires, Seelies, werewolves...they banded together and grew more powerful. Finally they will be destroyed...and so will you.

Jace: I'm so sorry, Clary.
Clary: Okay, hold your breath, okay. Don't say anything. You need your strength. It's gonna be okay. It's gonna be okay.
Jace: I love you.
Clary: Don't close your eyes. Jace, don't close your eyes. Stay with me. Stay with me please. Just look at me...just look at me.
[Jace dies]

Seelie Queen: Simon is quite valiant and chivalrous, unlike any of the other night children I've come to known. You're all free to leave. My servant will escort you out of the court to safety.
[She reveals a glowing orb]
Luke: What's the catch?
Seelie Queen: What makes you think there is one?
Simon: Luke, let's just go.
Luke: Nothing ever comes for free. You never do anything out of the kindness of your heart. Hell, you were gonna sell the entire Downworld...
Maia: Let's just get out of here while we still can.
Seelie Queen: She's a smart one, you should listen to her. Before I change my mind.

Simon: You don't want things to end well, do you? You want war?
Seelie Queen: I want change. And you, Daylighter. Join me in my court, give me what I ask, and I'll grant you whatever your heart desires.
Simon: Thanks, but no thanks, your Highness.
[He starts to leave]
Seelie Queen: You've refused me twice now. No one in my very long life has ever dared do such a thing.
Simon: Well, considering you're trying to get vampires, warlocks and werewolves to play nice, might wanna get used to some rejection.

Seelie Queen: For far too long, the Downworld has depended on the Clave, and your Institute, to protect us from men like Valentine. It's time we learned our lesson and started fighting for ourselves.
Alec: We can't do this alone. Valentine is a threat to all of us.
Seelie Queen: The answer, Shadowhunters, is no.

Raphael: I'm truly sorry for everything. Our worlds turn against each's not quite how I pictured our paths would cross again.
Isabelle: How did you picture it?
Raphael: I made a mistake, Isabelle. And whatever there is between us, it's not just about craving each other's blood.
Isabelle: I know...I know.
Raphael: Well, if there's any good at being at the brink of war, it's being able to stand in front of you.

Jace: You care to find out who's the best J.C. once and for all?
[They arm their weapons]
Jonathan: It would be my absolute delight.
[They begin fighting]

Maia: Greek alphabet, huh. Who knew dating a college boy would come in handy?
Simon: Oh no...
Maia: What...was it the word "dating"?
Simon: No, no, it was the word "college". I mean, I haven't been in school in forever. Classes started a week ago and my mom already paid the meal plan, and I don't eat anymore so she's out like three grand. And then...wait...are we dating?
Maia: Would that be a bad thing?
Simon: No. I just, things like going to class and boyfriend/girlfriend, they feel very...
Maia: Mundane.
Simon: Yeah.
Maia: Considering how insane everything's been...
Simon: We should just stick with, "I like you and you like me."
Maia: But what if I "like" like you?

Russell: The rule is to the death.
Luke: Time for new rules.
[The wolves bow down to Luke]

Clary: If you have to leave, hold this for at least 30 seconds.
"Sebastian": I was just wondering actually, if you caught Jonathan, you wouldn't kill him, would you?
Clary: I used to believe that Jonathan could be saved, but after what he did to Elliot, and Dot, and now Max, I'll kill him with my bare hands if that's what it takes.
Sebastian: Well then...shall we?
[Holds the stone]

Shadowhunters Season 2 Quotes

Jace: You experimented on me?
Valentine: I made you stronger, faster; more lethal than any other Shadowhunter.
Jace: Why?
Valentine: To create the perfect weapon, the ideal marriage of good and evil: A Shadowhunter with pure demon blood.

Isabelle: Any word from the Clave?
Lydia: Not yet. We've been trying for the past four hours. Something's up.
Magnus: Hmmm. The Clave being unhelpful? Who's shocked?! Show of hands.
