Tonight’s episode of Shadowhunters is particularly exciting for fans of Cassandra Clare‘s Mortal Instruments. A key character, the Seelie Queen, will be introduced, and a long-awaited scene of anguish and forbidden love will be played out.
If you don’t know already, you’ll have to wait and see.
Freeform has kept the identity of the actress who is playing the Seelie Queen, the leader of the Fair Folk, tightly under wraps, so many viewers will be looking forward to that reveal. (Though good money has it that Sarah Hyland nabbed the role.)
Photos from the episode show that Simon (Alberto Rosende), Clary (Katharine McNamara), and Jace (Dominic Sherwood) will sit in the court of the Fair Folk. Faeries are beautiful, deadly, and deceptive (though they never tell lies). The Seelie Queen will plumb the romantic and emotional tension in the Simon-Clary-Jace love triangle which is bound to heat up tonight.
Shadowhunters airs Mondays at 8pm EST on Freeform.
