Valentine summons Raziel, the patron angel of the Shadowhunters, thinking he’ll receive some sort of blessing. Instead, Raziel destroys him. Why do you think Valentine believed he’d be rewarded? Your thoughts about how Raziel handled him?

~ Giulia ~ | 27 comments I loved that encounter! I thought it was the perfect ending.
Valentine was insane and, like the most dangerous villains, he really thought he was acting for the greater good. It's a really fitting ending to have his evil plan bring shadowhunters and downworlders closer than ever before, and for him to be killed by Raziel.

Oh, this was the highlight of the story!

I agree with everything you said, Giulia. His zealotry clouded his rational judgment because calling on Raziel and asking for power was just nuts. And, Raziel let him know what he thought about what he’d done to that angel, which made it even more crazy for Valentine to think it was appropriate to summon him.

Actually, this is the typical outcome for most extremists. You make a great point.

Melissa (melissasd) | 676 comments I really enjoyed this encounter and the end results were quite satisfying. I liked how Raziel spoke with Valentine and questioned him.
