The number one thing Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 20 does is open up an entire realm of possibilities for a Season 4.

Every single character sheds a tear, and it's impossible not to be full on sobbing alongside them. Nothing will prepare you for the events that transpire in the last five minutes.

On the other hand, Jordan reveals the Heavenly Fire to Maia, as well as the truth about why he stole it. 

He wants to allow Maia to live a human life, where Jordan may not be able to live a life at all.

Will he survive?

Asmodeus is jumping at this golden opportunity, and using his son's heartbreak to manipulate him and bring him over to his side. 

But not all heroes wear capes, and after hearing about her son's breakup, Maryse Lightwood takes it upon herself to get to the bottom of it.

When it comes to saving Clary, Jace is done messing around. He is ready to get her back once and for all, and will do whatever it takes. 

Like we said before, essentially everyone sheds some tears and Clary and Jace are no exception. You can look forward to a parallel of something Jace said to Clary earlier on in the season.
