I mentioned in the last post that the Silent Brother were supposed to be indestructible. However, I didn’t go into why that didn’t make any sense. First of all, if they are supposed to be indestructible, then how in the hell did Valentine and his minions end up killing them all? Again, The Silent Brothers are supposed to be the best of the best, and yet not only did Valentine managed to kill one, but, he helped to kill the rest of the order as well. Again, this is why we should have personally seen the fight between Valentine and Brother Jeremiah because this actually brings up a lot of unanswered questions.
Moving on from that clusterfuck, let’s talk about Isabelle. Now, for the most part, I haven’t talked about Isabelle. I only touched on her when Clary was being a bitch towards her back of ‘City of Bones’. There is a good reason for that: Isabelle is basically a cardboard cutout of a character. Isabelle has almost no speaking parts in the series so far. She’s a walking talking caricature of the bimbo trope.
This is here is proof positive that Cassandra Clare is purposely dumbing her down. And let me remind you guys how Clary (and by proxy Clare) slut shamed her in the last book because she dresses provocatively. Isabelle might as well be replaced by Kelly Bundy. The only that’s missing is that Isabelle has dark hair, while Kelly had blonde hair. I trust that you guys are smart enough to see how fucking sexist that is.
