While not a strong live+same-day performer, “Shadowhunters” has been reasonably consistent throughout the season — even this week’s numbers, while lows, are not down dramatically from those of last week. The combination of live+same-day consistency, multi-platform interest and brand passion resulted in a second season renewal.
I kind of sad about this, because this season was by far the strongest episode of the season. The winner for me was Kat McNamara. I have been very critical on Kat’s acting, but she was outstanding this episode. And though the ending was pretty predictable with Jace going off with Valentine, the most surprising events of this episode was the upset in the character’s relationships. Anywhoo, let’s hope that season 2 is even better.
