After a long hiatus, the Shadowhunters is finally returning to Freeform. It will the second half of the season 3 of the show. With a lot of expectations attached to the show, one of the biggest reveals came through on TV Line, The reveal of Jonathan Morgenstern in the second part of season 3.
Jonathan Morgenstern Before He Died
To understand how Jonathan Morgenstern has this new face, we need to go over what happened. What we remember is that Clary’s dad, the notorious and evil Valentine experimented with Downworlder’s blood on his wife. Which resulted in an evil baby. The poor lad (yes, I still do feel sorry for him for what Valentine put him through). We saw that Jonathan really had no face in the second season. He kidnapped and stole the identity of a British Shadowhunter, Sebastian Verlac who was played by Will Tudor.
Jonathan Morgenstern in Prime Form
Since the beginning of season 3, we saw that Llilth returned from the Downworld to resurrect her son, Jonathan. She used Jace as her pawn to achieve that goal. She needed Clary to complete the ritual and by the end of midsection finale, she had been successful. Jonathan Morgenstern had been resurrected. We don’t know what form he took. Or how he looked. However, in this new picture we can see that Mama Lilith made him shiny and new. Played by Luke Baines, we will have to wait to find out if this is really Jonathan Morgenstern. Or some poor guy he might be impersonating again.
Family Reunion for the Morgensterns
When Lilith resurrected Jonathan, he disappeared and so did Clary. We know that Jonathan always had an unhealthy obsession with Clary. This time, Lilith also bound Jonathan to Clary. So, it will be interesting to see what Clary and Jonathan might be up for when they meet again in the final episodes of the show. Or are they already together (that’s just my theory). In a recent photo of an upcoming episode, we see Luke and Jace forming a search plan to find Clary.
