Where Does Shadowhunters Rank Among TV's Best and Worst Series Finales?

You voted, and now it's time to compare.

Shadowhunters has officially come to an end. 

The Freeform series ended after three seasons and 55 episodes on Monday with everything a good series finale truly needs: a wedding, a first kiss, a major death, a battle win, a time jump, a sacrifice, and a bit of hope. Clary's shadowhunter memories had been erased, but clearly not completely, because she could see and recognize Jace, who had been looking after her. 

It was a bittersweet conclusion to the series after a devastating cancellation, but it was also basically a two and a half-hour movie that wrapped up the series in what felt like a pretty satisfying way. (That Malec wedding though...just a delight.) 

But that's just us. It's time to find out what you thought.
