Hodge betrayed Jace and The Lightwoods, color me surprised—not! Much like Dorothea, Hodge all but telegraphed that he was up to no good. Seriously, why does Clare continue to suck at writing plot twists? For such a supposedly experienced writer Clare continues to badly tip her hand. And once again, it’s just downright pathetic and sad.
Also Hodge dearie? When you were so quick to betray the Lightwoods and the children you practically help raise (or as much raising as some inefficient a caregiver as you are can), you forgot to consider a few things:
Do you think Valentine is just going to keep his end the bargain? You fucking betrayed him to the Clave! Do you think, even for one second that he is just going to pat you on the back and fucking let you go on your merry way? What other leverage do you have other than the freaking cup? The answer is absolutely nothing! By the way, Did you use your supposed high intelligence to actual think about the fact that the Clave is probably going to send every able-bodied Shadowhunter after you?
You gave their enemy one of the most sacred relics of your entire sub-species! The Mortal Cup is the one fucking item that is able to create new Shadowhunters. Yet, you just unprotestingly gave Valentine the cup. Valentine, by the way, who is probably responsible for the cold-blooded murders of dozens of his fellow Shadowhunters.The Clave will be hunting you until the day you die.
I mean, yeah you were essentially on House arrest, but your ‘prison’ was way cushier than what you freaking deserved. For those who don’t remember, Hodge outright admitted that he was at the very least an accessory (and at worst directly participated) in a dozen murders. In the Mundane world, Hodge would have been sentenced to life in a real prison. But yet, you still want me to feel sorry for you. Give me a fucking break!
