The countdown to the highly-anticipated release of City of Lost Souls has dipped below the three week mark and after the trailer debuted on EW.com on Wednesday there are more questions than ever about what lies in store for the characters.
After watching the trailer a dozen or so times (but hey, who’s counting?) here are some of the many questions the trailer raised:
1. What is Sebastian’s Plan for Jace?
That’s a major question that fans have been wondering since the City of Fallen Angels cliffhanger last April. It looked originally that Sebastian had a plan for Jace, but after watching that trailer it looks as if he’s using Jace to get to Clary. Surely Sebastian must have a plan for Jace, as well, but it looks like Clary is the object of his attention.
2. What are Sebastian’s Intentions with Clary?
When Sebastian says, “I have a sister and I will teach her to love me,” it was a line that struck a cord with the fandom. Cassandra Clare recently pointed out that Sebastian’s intentions are supposed to be uncertain at this point. She also insisted that incest, which played a role in the first three installments, is a recurring theme in the series. So perhaps Sebastian’s intention to make his sister love him may not be in the familial way.
3. What Happens When Sebastian Comes Face-to-Face with Jocelyn?
Who could forget this teaser: “Well, hello there, Mother,” Sebastian said in a voice like silk. “Surprised to see me?”. We all know how Sebastian feels about his mother, “I had a mother, but she is dead to me,” he said in the trailer. This face-to-face meeting is a scene that is sure to be deadly terrifying.
4. What Happens to Clary and Jace?
Certainly everyone is wondering what lies in store for Clary and Jace. City of Lost Souls introduces a Jace that fans nor Clary is used to. No doubt their relationship will tested in this next installment and we have to wonder that if Jace goes too far if Clary would be able to still stand by him?
5. How Will the Events in ‘Lost Souls’ Set Up ‘Heavenly Fire?’
We know Sebastian’s plan is to “burn down the world,” but with one book remaining certainly that plan will go into full effect in the series’ conclusion in City of Heavenly Fire. With a cliffhanger surely on the horizon, what will go down in City of Lost Souls to set up what is sure to be an emotionally gripping City of Heavenly Fire?
