I mentioned this earlier this week, but since Cassandra Clare keeps shoving it in our faces I’m going to tackle this again. First and foremost why is it hard for the Lightwood children to understand that The Inquisitor has absolute power over their entire family? Due to Elder Lightwood’s past association with Valentine, The Inquisitor basically has carte blanche to do anything up to killing the entire Lightwood family.
And to add on to the utter stupidity (and to my ever growing frustration ) Clare purposely wrote this bit to make Isabelle look even more like a dumb bimbo. Seriously, it’s obvious to anyone with a lick of common sense that Clare has a hate boner for this girl. So she’s dumbing Isabelle down once again for laughs and to humiliate what she clearly sees as Clary’s primary rival.
Every fucking time Clare does this shit, it’s freaking disgusting and it further proves that she has never been and never will be a feminist.
