Isabelle Lightwood (Emeraude Toubia), of Freeform's Shadowhunters, is easily one of the toughest, coolest, most confident women on television. She wields a whip like Indiana Jones, loves her friends and family more than anything, and she is never, ever the damsel in distress -- in fact, Izzy usually does the rescuing. Izzy has the brains to match her beauty, a body-positive attitude, and takes complete ownership of her sexuality. Basically, Isabelle Lightwood is a total badass. And with a second season of Shadowhunters on the way, there are sure to be plenty more epic Izzy moments in our future. In the mean time, I've assembled some of my favorite moments from season one that prove Isabelle Lightwood is our spirit animal.
When she pulled off her platinum wig in "The Mortal Cup" and made us all realize we needed to seriously up our hair game.
And right after that, when she dished out some Shadowhunter justice with her whip.
When she smoldered at Simon for the first time and we all knew waiting for that romance to happen was going to be sweet, sweet torture.
Every time she says EXACTLY what we're all thinking -- especially this time:
When Izzy's sass is too much:
Literally. Too. Much.
When she rescued Simon from the Jade Wolf like it was really not a big deal.
Because it wasn't -- because she's Isabelle FREAKING Lightwood.
That time she felt literally no need at ALL to defend her relationship with Meliorn. And why the heck should she??
Her unwavering devotion to Alec and every time she reminds him of it...because sometimes people need reminding.
That time she was willing to throw down with Camille when she implied Malec wouldn't last.
Every time she helps Clary in her journey as a Shadowhunter and reminds us that tv friendships between women can happen without any of that formulaic "mean girl" crap.
When one look at Simon said everything we needed to hear. #SizzyFoLife
