Events come to a head in this episode at the wedding of Alec (Matthew Daddario) and Lydia (Stephanie Bennett), when Magnus (Harry Shum, Jr.) interrupts the ceremony, demanding to speak to Alec. While it may have been a shock to the characters, Shadowhunters fans expected Magnus to crash the wedding, if only because Alec’s sister, Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia), had secretly invited the warlock.Even with Alec’s mother pleading and insisting that Magnus leave at once, he refuses to depart without speaking to Alec.
As all attention focuses on Matthew Daddario’s character, the Shadowhunters scene ends, leaving fans to speculate on how Alec might respond.“Alec at this point is not just lying to himself, he’s actively building up walls to prevent him from feeling what’s actually going on inside of him,” Daddario said of Alec’s mental state in the upcoming Shadowhunters episode. “All the distractions and various issues brought on by all of these people … he has a lot to think about.”Daddario also says, that he believes his Shadowhunters character will make the right decisions, when it comes right down to it.
I find it a tad bit cliché that Magnus is going to crash the wedding, especially with all the fandom wank that was drummed up after last episode and how some people shouting that Magnus is being predatory which is completely ridiculous. However, I am like every Malec fan chomping at the bit how the writers are going to resolve the triangle between Lydia, Magnus, and Alec. I also squeed at Alec just was memorized when Magnus walked into the room. That moment was Everything, and I can’t wait until tomorrow.
