I have a lot to say about these three snippets.Seriously, I’m going to break it down, so you can get the full depth of the stupidity being exhibited in these snippets.
- Why didn’t Clary and Jace try for the cellar door when everyone was distracted? Seriously, they just stood there and watched the melee between the Vampires and the Werewolves like a complete bunch of dumbasses! Simon for that brief shining moment was the only one who exhibited some type of common sense.
- Unfortunately, I had to shortly take back any kudos I gave to Simon, because of all the doors he picks, he picks the door that has a set of stairs that goes up to the roof. Does Clare even care to know that this is a really bad horror movie cliché?
- Um, what happened to the all-powerful runes and stelle? Does it even cross Jace’s tiny mind for even a moment that instead of trying to force the door open with his body that he could have easily whipped out his stelle and blown the door down? And then he had the utter audacity to use his stelle to draw a rune that would give him so extra time to run. It was like Clare was rubbing Jace’s stupidity in my face, and it pissed me off to no end.
So now you see, I normally would be gushing at this action scene. Seriously, I would rather have action over boring exposition any day! However, I can not applaud blatant idiocy and mediocrity .
