Bound By Blood is the ninth episode of the second season of Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments.


CLARY FACES A WORLD OF TROUBLE: Clary is sidelined by Iris' blood oath, while the Downworld begins to fall apart.

With word getting out that Clary is a key part of Valentine's plan, the Downworlders are at odds on how to handle the issue. But when Iris activates her blood oath, Clary has more to worry about than hiding from Valentine and the Downworlders.

Meanwhile, Isabelle and Raphael get closer as Alec tries to figure out what's going on with his sister.
