Confronting The Owl
The group is taking the Owl Demon/Jace problem head on. From the look Simon is giving Jace, he is going to knock some sense into him if he has to.

Don't Mess With Isabelle
Isabelle isn't going to let Lilith take hold of her brother for any longer. She's going to free Jace from her control at all costs.
Alec wants his brother and parabathai back safe and sound from the demon's control. This plan is going to need to make sure that Jace isn't harmed.
What does the group know about Lilith? She's an all-powerful demon who could destroy them like flies. They need to be careful if they take the battle to her.

As a shadowhunter, extra protection will be needed to keep Clary chained during her persecution and interrogation. Enter the stele and handcuffs.
