So to quickly recap: Jace and the others were getting their collective asses kicked when Abaddon mortally injures Alec, and then he demands the Mortal Cup in exchange for a quick death. Then much like some action hero, Simon kicked opens the door, carrying Alec’s left behind bow and quiver, and shoots the conveniently placed skylight and the demon crumbles away like a discarded piece of paper.
Got all of that? Great!
You mean to tell me big bad Abaddon, whose name means the freaking DESTROYER, who is the Angel of the Abyss, the King of Locusts, and who is one of the bringers of the freaking Apocalypse is just scared away by some sunlight?
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??!!
If you are going to use a big bad like that at the very least make his character have a decent motivation, and for god sakes let the son of a bitch go out with a freaking bang! I haven’t been this disappointed in a battle since the final battle between the Volturi and The Cullens back in Breaking Dawn.
Like, I’m all for Simon have his big damn hero moment, but Abaddon getting taken out by sunlight is completely ridiculous! I mean we got some foreshadowing with demonic motorcycles, but I like I said back in Chapter 15, demonic energy being allergic to sunlight makes zero sense. Also, you would think that all the Downworlders would have some issue with sunlight since they were created partially from demons.
And one last thing: What was the point of this confrontation with Abaddon? Seriously, right now it looks that he was there for nothing. It added nothing to the plot, but to kill off Dorothea off in one of the most horrible ways possible. And you know what Clare? Fuck you for doing Dorothea like that! Dorothea was one of the few characters I could freaking root for and you took her out like that!
