Maia and this demon bring up so many questions for me: WHY IS CLARY STAYING AT LUKE”S HOUSE? Seriously, Luke should have taken her upstate or rented out a motel room or something. I forgot about this, but thanks to Clare and her latest bullshit plot point she reminded me that Valentine actually knows where Luke lives because Pangborn and Blackwell visited Luke way back in ‘City Of Bones’.
This is where Clary overheard Luke tell them that he doesn’t care about Clary and Jocelyn. And it’s only logical to assume that Pangborn and Blackwell reported back to Valentine the location of where Luke was living at.
The moment that Clary left the institute and moved in with Luke, he should have taken her to literally anywhere else But no, Clary has been vulnerable that whole entire time and Valentine DID NOTHING ABOUT THIS UNTIL NOW. Why?
What the fuck has Valentine been up to? Twiddling his fingers? Luke, with the pack around him, is a clear threat to Valentine and if he got rid of Luke he could have easily Clary and possibly Jace. Hell, he quite possibly regained control of Jocelyn as well with a little resistance.
*groans* This shit right here really undercuts Valentine as a villain. Why is everyone in this damn book so fucking stupid?
