This week’s Shipping Saturday honors go to a BroTP I have loved on both the page and the screen: Alec Lightwood and Jace Wayland. After being separated by forces beyond their control, the adoptive brothers were reunited in one of the most emotional scenes Shadowhunters has produced. After Alec’s desperate attempt to to rescue using the rune that tethers their beings together, Jace finds him close to death. In one final effort to revive him, Jace takes Alec in his arms and recites the Parabatai oath. This affirmation of their soul-binding connection breaks through what all the medical and magical interventions could not. Simple and heartbreakingly emotional, this simple scene embodies everything about the Jace and Alec relationship fans of Shadowhunters love, making them the standout pair of this week.
Check out their moving moment from this week’s Shadowhunters below.
After months of waiting, we finally get a sneak peek of what we can expect next season on Freeform’s Shadowhunters. If you thought last was a wild ride, it looks like things are about to get even crazier. With the Clave at war with Valentine, the hunt for Jace is on, leaving everyone torn between love and obligation. Clary has finally been reunited with her mother, but her mother doesn’t seem too thrilled that her daughter has fully embraced her shadowhunter heritage or her intense connection to Jace. Alec’s also got his own mamma drama with Mayrse threatening to kill his traitorous parabatai and her reluctance to accept his warlock boyfriend. Throw in Simon trying to navigate the vampire world, Magnus trying to break down Alec’s walls, and Izzy being her fierce self, and we’re bound to be in for an emotional roller coaster.
