The chemistry between Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood is as subtle as a freight train. It’s incendiary and all-consuming; it’s palpable. When we meet Alec in Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones, he’s in pain. He’s crumbling under the weight of his family’s high expectations and his confusing feelings for his best friend Jace. It’s Magnus, a 400-year-old sexually fluid warlock, who helps Alec better understand those feelings.In the penultimate episode of Shadowhunters, Magnus detailed what falling in love felt like: loss of breath when that person enters a room, a rapidly beating heart, and tingling skin. It was an impassioned speech that not only marked the dawn of “Malec” (a.k.a. Magus and Alec), but it also echoed what viewers were feeling watching two people so perfect for one another fall in love. A love like Malec’s is one that leaves you breathless and tingly.Watch Magus and Alec’s beautiful love story unfold in the featurette below, exclusively on MTV News, and just try not to feel all dizzy and weightless. (Be warned, it’s impossible.)
First and foremost. I love it that once again MTV is promoting a rival show to it’s flag ship show, ‘Teen Wolf’. I lol’d when they promoted ‘Shadowhunters’ during the season 5B premiere. LOL, you didn’t know that I hate Teen Wolf’s showrunner Jeff Davis as much as I hate Cassandra Clare? Anyway, the Malec kiss was EVERYTHING (and I will side eye anyone who says different) and I still need to recover. I’m so not read for the season finale!
