Once again, Alec and Isabelle are put on the sidelines for no reason. Again, as I said last week there is no logical reason why Alec and Isabelle are sitting out the final battle, while Clary who has no fighting ability is allowed to go. Seriously, Isabelle and Alec have been training alongside Jace since they were kids.
He’s basically leaving his two best fighters (not counting Luke) behind for this huge confrontation with their big bad. Honestly, it should be all hands on deck. By the way, Magnus is here, but Jace trusts Magnus not to stab him in the back? Instead of Alec, who is ridiculously loyal to him.
From the get-go, Magnus had been a mercenary jackass. He’s also ruthless, who doesn’t give a shit about anyone but himself (Alec included). There is no way I would trust Magnus with anything. Yet, Magnus is here and Alec and Isabelle are not.
I will always say that Alec and Isabelle are only here to be the token gay guy and a target for slut-shaming, this passage is another piece of proof. of that
