Normally, I would celebrate Clary finally firing up the tiny brain cell she has left and finally figure out that Valentine wasn’t just her mother’s ex-husband, but her father as well. I mean, I have been screaming about how obvious this plot twist was from the very beginning.
Yet, what keeps me from celebrating this plot point was the solid fact that Clary took TWENTY-TWO CHAPTERS to freaking figure it out! Seriously, Hodge all but spelled it out to her back in Part II, and even with this passage, Luke still has to spell it out for her .
And no, I refuse to believe that Clary is just simply in denial. Not when Cassandra Clare has been super obvious about this plot twist since way back in Chapter 2.
