God, I hate this so much Even Luke, who knows they Jace only came to the bar to start trouble. Unfortunately, Luke like everybody else just excuses what Jace does, just because was he abused as a child and was also abandoned by his foster mother.
For the new folks here, I’m going to see this again, because it bears fucking repeating. ABUSE IS NOT A GET-OUT-FREE-JAIL CARD!
When you start using your abuse as an excuse to hurt other people physically or mentally then, in my opinion, any sympathy for your situation is now gone. I know that Jace is in a rough place right now, hell even I would admit that Jace has had a pretty shitty life. However, that doesn’t give Jace the right to throw verbal abuse and incite the werewolves into violence. Especially, since both Jace and Luke know that the werewolves cannot defend themselves without retaliation from the Clave.
Yet, even Luke, who is a werewolf and who is the leader of the pack doesn’t even try to reprimand Jace for his actions. He literally just patting Jace on the back and lets the whole situation go. As an authority figure, and as the leader of the pack it is his duty to put the concerns of his pack before everything else. And Jace single-handedly with this little stunt tried to destroy the fragile peace between the Clave and the werewolves.
But apparently, Luke doesn’t care, because he still has a prejudice against his own people. Because apparently, The Shadowhunters are better than the werewolves. It’s obvious even now, that Luke doesn’t really give a shit at all about a competent leader. For Luke, the pack just remains a means to an end.
