Suddenly, I'm drawing hundreds of these

things and I have no idea what they are.

I don't know...

I think I'm going out of my mind.

Maybe you're like the guy

in "Close Encounters".

Everybody thought he was paranoid

and then it turned out to be, well...

...UFO... reasonable...

Oh God, this isn't happening.

- What?

- This isn't happening.

Okay, now you're freaking me out.

Clary... are you...?

What are you looking at?

Wait here.

Where's the Cup, Jocie?

- How did you find me?

- You can thank your daughter for that.

Why can I see you

and no one else can?

I was going to ask you

the same question.

I don't even know why I'm talking

to you. You're a killer.

- A cold-blooded killer.

- As opposed to a peace-loving killer?

- I know what I saw.

- You think you know.

Why am I drawing this?

So I was right.

You're not a mundane.

Excuse me.

What's a mundane?

Someone from the human world.

If I'm not a human then what am I?

Go find the Cup.

- When did this start?

- No. No.

Why am I drawing this?

Answer me!


Maybe you should answer that.

It could be your boyfriend.

- He's not my boyfriend.

- Does he know that?

Please, it's annoying.

- Mom, I'm coming home.

- No, you can't come home!

You understand me?

You don't come home.

You call Luke. Tell him Valentine's

alive and that he found me.

- I love you.

- Mom!

You tell Valentine he'll

never have the Cup.

Don't drink! Come here!

Come on!

- I'm sorry. Are you okay?

- You okay? Alright, don't move.



Come on. Come on.

- That's enough!

- No!

That's enough.

It's dead.

What the hell was that?

You wouldn't believe me if I told you.

Try me.

It was a demon.

You're right.

I don't believe you.

And that thing you saw me

kill at the club, that...

that was also a demon.
