Alec Lightwood: You would do anything to break Clary's connection with Jonathan, right?
Jace Herondale: Yeah. Yeah, of course.
Alec Lightwood: So, hypothetically, what if you could? But, as a consequence, you could never see her again?
Jace Herondale: That's a little dark.
Alec Lightwood: Just humor me. Would you do it?
Jace Herondale: Now that I've lost her once, I don't think I could ever go through that again. It's selfish, I know. But...
Alec Lightwood: No. I get it.
Clary Fairchild: When I was a kid, I had this recurring nightmare. It was terrifying. I would wake up screaming. My mom thought if I drew what I was seeing, it would help me deal with it.
Jace Herondale: You dreamt of a boy in a burning tower.
Clary Fairchild: There was this evil queen that kept her prince locked in a burning tower, so that he could never love anyone but her. And I was the princess that was supposed to rescue him. Every time, I would climb that tower, and just as I'd reach the top... I would fall. I never made it to the top. I couldn't rescue him. I... I can still hear his screams. It was him. The prince was Jonathan. Maybe... Maybe I was supposed to save him. But I didn't. I couldn't...
Jace Herondale: Clary, hey. Even if this was a message from the angels... you were just a kid.
Clary Fairchild: Yeah, but if I had known, if I could've saved him, then... maybe-maybe he wouldn't be who he is today.
Jace Herondale: No. It was already too late. You couldn't have changed him. You still can't. Jonathan is who he is.
Jace Herondale: You're nervous. Why are you nervous?
Alec Lightwood: What? I'm... I'm not nervous.
Jace Herondale: Yes, you are. What's going on?
Alec Lightwood: I'm, uh, proposing to Magnus tonight.
Jace Herondale: What? Are you serious? Alec, congratulations. You're about to make Magnus the happiest man in the world.
Alec Lightwood: Yeah. I just want everything to be perfect.
Jace Herondale: Listen to me. It's not gonna matter what you do or what you say when he realizes he gets to spend the rest of his life with you.
Clary Fairchild: When I saw Jonathan last night, I couldn't call for help. I couldn't walk away. I couldn't do anything! And after what happened with Aline, and the fire, I... I... I can feel it, Jace! It's this darkness. It's growing, and I...
Jace Herondale: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Hey, listen to me. You are a good person. And there is no rune that's gonna change that.
