The Descent Into Hell Isn't Easy is the second episode of Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments.

Synopsis

THE RACE IS ON TO FIND THE MORTAL CUP AND CLARY'S MOTHER: Clary's memories may be the key to finding her mother and the Mortal Cup.

With the knowledge that Valentine is alive and on the hunt for The Mortal Cup, the Institute is on high alert. Not wanting to waste time, Jace jumps into action and figures that Clary's memories are the key to finding Jocelyn and The Mortal Cup. Unfortunately, Clary's memories were wiped leaving her without any recollection of this other life that could help her and the team. With only one other option remaining, Jace, Isabelle and a very reluctant Alec take Clary to the City of Bones to face the powerful Silent Brothers.

Meanwhile, Luke continues his search for Clary, and Simon tries to come to terms with his best friend's new life.

  • For Hodge's involvement with the Circle, he was cursed with the inability to ever leave the Institute.
  • Isabelle is a bad cook.
  • Clary is condescendingly called "little girl".
  • Clary was taken to the Silent Brothers in an effort to access her blocked memories, specifically for the whereabouts of the Cup.
  • Clary sees the Shadowhunter creed on a statue of an angel near the entrance to the City of Bones. Jace translates the motto as "Looking better in black than

the widows of our enemies", before Clary is informed of its true meaning immediately after.

  • Like in the film, Simon was intentionally kidnapped by vampires to be used him as bait to lure Clary to them for the Mortal Cup.
  • The statue of an angel in the City of Bones was first used for the film.
