I’m back! Sorry about that the long wait, but Chapter 21 broke me. I had to take a break for the sake of my remaining sanity! So let’s get started, shall we?
Okay, you know what? I can understand Hodge not trusting Clary. After Hodge betrayed them, and after he let Valentine just take Jace it’s pretty understandable why Hodge would skeptical of Clary’s promise that she wouldn’t hurt him. However, all that I said just goes straight out the window, because of instead of just stopping there, Hodge goes further to explain that Clary’s word means nothing because she’s was raised as a mundane. You see the word of regular people like you and me means absolutely nothing to him because we aren’t super special Shadowhunters.
Seriously, any tiny minuscule shred of sympathy I might have had for Hodge just completely dried right up. Cassandra Clare can’t truly write a sympathetic character to save her life.
