"Shadowhunters" Season 2 is peppered with hold-on-to-your-seats kind of fights and with plenty of lovey-dovey and dramatic moments. The second one is mainly due to the two main protagonists' love, but there is one other relationship in the TV adaptation of Cassandra Clare's "Mortal Instrument" that people should pay attention to. That is the relationship of Alec and Magnus or "Malec".
At first, Alexander Lightwood was nursing forbidden feelings for his parabatai. But as the show went along, Alec developed feelings for the powerful warlock, Magnus Bane. Their unconventional pairing is not the only thing that sets them apart from other ships. They tiptoed and danced around each other at the beginning, but fans finally saw the polar opposites' love come into full bloom in "Shadowhunters" Season 2. Their romance is also something that many couples can and should take cues from. Unlike Jace and Clary's approach towards each other, Malec have been careful with their other halves, Hypable wrote. Magnus Bane had to do so especially since his mortal partner, Alec, was still new to their kind of relationship.
Episode 6 of the fantasy series also gave another insight into the relationship of the unlikely couple. Alec gave the powerful Magnus Bane a charming gift (for luck and for protection) and went to spend some much-needed quality time with him. However, TV Fanatic shared that his previous love interest, Jace, appeared to ruin their moment. Such a thing is very likely to occur again and again in "Shadowhunters" Season 2.
Nevertheless, "Malec" have been growing stronger, as viewers have witnessed. In fact, Alec even went to his sister Izzy to ask her when he will know it is the right time for you-know-what. Izzy advised that he should just go ahead with it when he is comfortable. What happened next in "Shadowhunters" Season 2 Episode 7 was a literal interpretation of his sister's advice. Still, those who tuned in were treated to a sweet and hot moment between him and Magnus.
