'Shadowhunters' season 3 episode 14: After Jace, it is Simon who teams up with Luke
Luke has managed to land himself in a whole lot of mess, but it is Simon's signature quick thinking and strategy that helps him deal with the crisis.
Luke Garroway might not be an alpha anymore but looks like his fatherly duties are going to be intact on 'Shadowhunters' season 3. The mid-season premiere showed him teaming up with Jace to go looking for Clary; but Jace isn't the only Shadowhunter at the receiving end of Luke's guidance this season.
Fast forward to this week's episode 14, 'A Kiss From A Rose', and Luke is back to being the voice of reason, as he teamed up with Simon to impart his glorious wisdom.
This comes after the promo photos of the episode did not feature Simon (Alberto Rosende) and Luke (Isiah Mustafa) - something that fans were quick to notice.
But now we know what exactly the two have been up to -- exchanging information and getting Luke out of trouble with the police after the showdown between the vampires and werewolves.
But even though Luke has managed to land himself in a whole lot of mess, it is Simon's signature quick thinking and strategy that helps him deal with the crisis.
After the showdown, when cops arrive at the scene, there were bloody bodies lying everywhere, and Luke being someone who hasn't always had the best encounters with cop, gets blamed for it.
And even though this episode was a clear depiction of how Luke's relationship with the cops has changed over the years, what's striking is Simon reaching out to him in these complex times. Simon, being a Daylighter (vampires who can walk in the sun) - was being mentored by Jordan Kyle from the Praetor Lupus to help him exercise better control over his newly gained powers.
But now with Jordan gone and Simon still needing a mentor, the latter makes the decision to seek Luke's guidance.
But even though Simon goes as a mentee to Luke, he ends up helping the older man regain his confidence and composure, by providing him relevant information in exchange for a "classic Simon" type plan to get Luke out of the mess he has landed in.
But Luke bonding with the young Shadowhunters and exchanging valuable life lessons haven't been uncommon in the show, neither has him teaming up with Simon. In fact, in the very first half of season 3 (episode 8), we saw him and Simon teaming up in Magnus Bane's (Harry Shum Jr.) apartment to share information regarding how they could save Jace from The Owl's control.
'Shadowunters' returns with episode 15 on Monday, March 25, at 8/7c, only on Freeform.
