The promotional trailer for the “ShadowhuntersSeason 2 Episode 20 is a foreboding of a death to come. It teased the death of someone very important to Clary and speculations point to Jace Wayland. Executive producer and showrunner Todd Slavkin seemed to have confirmed this theory during the recent San Diego Comic-Con.

Jace bids farewell

With only a few hours left until the Season 2 finale of the “Shadowhunters” airs on Freeform, fans are already excited to know who lives and dies. That big tease at the end of the Episode 20 trailer definitely hinted at someone very special to Clary Fray.

She looked so heartbroken and devastated. There are only three people that she would cry that hard for—Simon, Jace and Luke.

Simon and Luke are headed to the Seelie Court in the Season 2 finale, so they seem safe from harm or death. Jace, on the other hand, is off with Clary to stop Valentine. Fans believe that he is the one who dies from his encounter with Valentine and Slavkin seemed to hint at this too, during the “Shadowhunters” panel at the San Diego Comic Convention.

The showrunner talked about the series’ direction in terms of its adaptation to Cassandra Clare’s “Mortal Instruments” books. He revealed that Season 3 will center on “City of Fallen Angels.”

“If you’ve read the books then we want you to also be surprised and go on a journey.

It’s built in that there will be devastation from the books… It leads to a nice mixture of adaptation and newness,” Slavkin said according to Hypable.

How Jace dies

Fans who read the book already know what happens to Jace in the story. He becomes vulnerable to demonic possession following his resurrection. If Jace resurrected then it means he also died.

If the show follows his storyline in the third book, “City of Glass,” then his death should happen in the “Shadowhunters” Season 2 Episode 20, titled "Beside Still Water." Jace dies at the end of the book from a stab wound. This happened after he goes after Clary to Lake Lyn and rescued her from Valentine. Clary’s father wanted to sacrifice her to summon the angel Raziel.

However, Valentine decided to use Jace’s angel blood instead and so he stabbed him in the chest.

However, Clary brings him back to life with Raziel’s help. The angel saw her clean intentions and gave her one wish. She wished for Jace to live again. Valentine, on the other hand, died after Raziel killed him.
