Harry is assuring fans that #Malec will go through some ups and downs, but you’ll see some sweet romance too.
“I think their relationship is growing stronger and when it grows stronger, youâre also going to have different mindsets on how things are dealt with that they need to figure out just like any relationship,” Harry told TVInsider.com. “I think itâs just cool that the fact that theyâre acknowledging theyâre boyfriends and the fact that Alec came to Magnus and was like,’âLook, this, what we have right here, itâs not going anywhere,’ and for someone to say that, I think thatâs a big deal in any relationship.”
Harry added, “Oh, definitely youâll see romantic moments. One thing Iâll say to that is that the cast, the writers, and the producers, we all care about all the relationships and we all always champion the idea of showing the progression of the relationships. Specifically for Malec, and I can speak for Matt, we always try to play it as real as possible. There will be a lot more romantic moments coming up while trying to battle Valentine and hopefully not getting killed in the process!”
Here’s the episode synopsis: “Only hours have passed since Jace (Dominic Sherwood) left with Valentine (Alan van Sprang) and all hell has broken loose at The Institute.
Alec, Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia), and Clary (Katherine McNamara) are desperate to find Jace, but are quickly stopped in their tracks with the arrival of Victor Aldertree, who means business about getting the Institute back on track.
But getting the New York Shadowhunters in-line with The Clave may be counterintuitive to Alec, Isabelle and Claryâs plan to rescue Jace. Meanwhile, Jocelyn (Maxim Roy) has a lot to catch up on now that she is awake.”
Shadowhunters premieres TONIGHT, January 2 @ 9PM on Freeform. Check out some fan tweets below!
