After several Shadowhunters are killed, The Institute turns to controversial methods to prevent a Downworlder uprising.
On the eve of Alec and Lydia’s wedding, relationships are examined in “Malec,” an all-new episode of “Shadowhunters,” airing TUESDAY, MARCH 29 (9:00–10:00 p.m., EDT) on Freeform.
The Institute is in full swing as everyone is preparing for the wedding of Alec and Lydia. Lydia is getting final touches made on her wedding dress, the wedding decorations are set and Isabelle is trying to figure out a way to throw a traditional, mundane bachelor party for her brother – whether he likes it or not. During what should be a time of great celebration for many is far from it as they examine their relationships. Alec is struggling on two sides – his wedding is one of the biggest days in his life and his parabatai should be at his side, yet he and Jace are still at odds. Alec also continues to struggle with his feelings for Magnus, especially when Magnus won’t give up on Alec. And as the Institute is buzzing with romance, Clary is desperate to work things out with Jace, but he is keeping her at arm’s length.
Meanwhile, Jace, Clary and Magnus go looking for warlock Ragnor Fell to try and find the antidote to awaken Jocelyn.
After receiving important intel about Valentine from a surprising ally, Clary, Jace and Luke devise a plan to rescue Jocelyn. With the mission looking almost impossible, the three will stop at nothing to rescue Clary’s mother and put a stop to Valentine once and for all.
Meanwhile, Inquisitor Herondale arrives at the Institute for Isabelle’s trial as Alec turns to Magnus for help.

"Lydia Branwell is a character who was invented for the show. I didn’t know much about her beyond her involvement with Alec (Maryse wants to marry Alec to her), so I asked Ed, and he said Lydia was created because “we had to sort of bring Idris to the Institute! We need that larger story you have in the novels about the Accords and the role that the original families play in the history of the Shadowhunters, so we had to bring someone to the Institute to embody that.“ He also said she is an obstacle to Magnus and Alec’s romance about which they are enthusiastic. One of the other writers, Angel Dean Lopez, said the girl Alec was going to be involved with (Lydia) was “a lot like him in personality.” I know she says in her audition that she was in love with “John Blackthorn” (but don’t know if he ever shows up as a character.)
There’s a big story on The Wrap about the casting and the actress, Stephanie Bennett.
"Several readers, spider senses tingling, have been asking about the casting of Robert and Max Lightwood. Showrunner Ed kindly took some time out of his schedule to shoot over these headshots.
Robert will be played by Paulino Nunes, and Max will be played by Jack Fulton. Ed will try to get a stealth shot of them in action behind the scenes. *finger wiggle* I’m interested to see how they’re incorporated into the show!"
Robert Lightwood kommer att spelas av Paulino Nunes
"Shadowhunters is bringing a new Shadowhunter on board for its debut season.
Lydia is described as “a beautiful, no-nonsense young Shadowhunter who is an abrasive “badass.” She has known terrible loss in her life, and she has become driven and harsh as a result — butUNDER her hard shell lies considerable vulnerability.”'

They didn’t make an announcement about Maryse because they only “announce” what they call “recurring cast members.” I don’t know what makes someone specifically a recurring cast member, but it may have to do with number of episodes they’re in. More characters you know from the books will be getting cast in weeks to come, including more of the Lightwood family.
Översättning: Dom meddelade inget om Maryse eftersom dom bara "meddelar" det som dem kallar "återkommande skådespelare". Jag vet inte vad som gör någon specifikt till en återkommande skådespelare, men det kan ha att göra med antalet avsnitt som dom är i. Flera karaktärer som ni känner igen från böckerna kommer att bli tillsatta under de kommande veckorna, detta inkluderar även flera från familjen Lightwood.
