‘Shadowhunters’: Quotes from “Lost Souls” that gave us the feels

I'm not crying, you're crying!

Hey y’all, are you still breathing? We are… but barely! The mid-season premiere of Shadowhunters’ “Lost Souls” was everything we could have hoped for – and more! It was epic, intense and heartbreaking and had us sobbing so many times! There were so many quotes that got us emotional – here are some of the best!

*This quotes post contains spoilers for 3×11 “Lost Souls.”*

Isabelle Lightwood: Our queen

How badass was Izzy in that episode? She was like the glue that held everything together, handing out advice left and right, comforting everybody and helping out where she could. “Lost Souls” offered Izzy plenty of opportunity to show her softer side and we loved it! Who doesn’t stan an empathetic and caring woman like that? Especially one that can kick ass, hard!

That moment when our heart broke for Izzy…

Izzy Lightwood: I understand the kind of pain you’re in, Jace.

Jace Herondale: No, you don’t. I’m sorry, you don’t.

Izzy Lightwood: You’re right. I’ve never loved anyone the way you loved Clary.

Izzy and Maia talk about dealing with loss and grief

Izzy: Simon had to say goodbye to his mom forever.

Maia: I had no idea.

Izzy: How could you? You weren’t here.

Maia: Me leaving had nothing to do with Simon. I just needed to be alone. Haven’t you ever felt like that? Like you needed to get away from it all?

Izzy: I have. I guess when times get tough, some people need to be alone. And others need to around other people. I’m more like that, and I think Simon is, too.

Jonathan Morgenstern: Evil has never looked so good

Can we just say we are utterly in love with Jonathan? He sure knows how to make an entrance! We were so in awe of him! Clary, on the other hand, wasn’t so impressed. Stabbing the guy through the chin? Really, Clary? Is that the proper way of showing some sibling appreciation? Especially when Jonathan appears to be so protective of you, so eager to please?

Jonathan playing the family card

Jonathan: You don’t have to thank me. You’re my sister. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect you. You’re the only family I have.”


Jonathan: I understand that you don’t trust me, but I would like to ask you to try.

Clary: How could I possibly trust you? After everything you’ve done?

Jonathan: Because I’m your brother. Because we’re actually not that different, you and me.

Clary: I am nothing like you.

Is being nice in your genes? Jonathan thinks it might be possible.

Jonathan: I can’t deny the things I have done, but you need to know that’s behind me now. I can change. I want to change. Because whatever good exists inside of you, at least some of that has got to be inside of me, too. Somewhere. I intend to prove that to you.

Alec Lightwood : Yoda incarnated?

Hey Alec, just one question:  When did you get so wise? Seriously, it’s such a joy to watch this new, confident in his skin Alec. He has grown so much and it certainly shows – not just in the way he acts, but also in the way he interacts with people. He isn’t afraid to speak his mind any longer and it’s the most beautiful thing ever.

Parabatai talk: Playing slightly dirty to get Jace to see reason

Jace: You should have killed me when you had the chance. Clary would still be here.

Alec: Yeah, but she’s not. The way you’re acting… it’s a disgrace to her memory. If I lost you, I’d be lost, too.

Jace: I’m so sorry. You’re right. I didn’t think of it like that.

Malec interaction: Dealing with Magnus’ new reality

Alec: Your power doesn’t just come from your magic. It comes from your inner strength… which you are overflowing with. […]

Magnus: I still feel so humiliated. Having you and Isabelle rescue me, and healed by Catarina. I hate that feeling of having to rely on others to take care of me.

Alec: You’ve been taking care of others your whole life. Sometimes it’s okay to let others take care of you.”
