Harry Shum Jr.: Take our magical ‘Shadowhunters’ Malec quiz
It’s a tale as old as time. Boy meets boy. Boy 1 flirts with Boy 2. Boy 2 is kind of into it but working through some things at the moment. Boy 1 calls up Boy 2 for a date. Boy 2 is into it, but has to postpone it to save the world (as you do). Boy 2 gets suckered into an arranged marriage with Girl for reasons that still don’t seem completely clear.
Boy 1 tries to talk Boy 2 out of wedding with Girl, gets rebuffed, and shows up to the wedding anyway looking like a wedding snack. Boy 1 sees the perfect wedding snack in front of him and can’t go through with arranged wedding with Girl.
Boy 1’s bride-to-be is cool with it, Boys 1 & 2 kiss, music swells, audiences around the world weep, and “love” in the Oxford English Dictionary is revised to feature just a picture of Malec.
That all takes place just in the first season of Shadowhunters.
There’s a lot to love about the slow burn of this relationship, and for anyone following the growth of Alec and Magnus’s story since the show’s beginning, they will have no trouble getting a perfect score on this quiz. Test your knowledge and when you’re done, tweet @ us with your score so we can bond over the perfect representation of a queer, maturing relationship together.
