I would bet good money that this was improvised by Harry and Matt, it reminds me so much of the scene in 1x06 where Harry improvised Magnus putting his finger to Alecs lips getting an even more genuine reaction out of Daddario, like I can just feel in my bones he did it again here. And how lovely that we have two actors with this much genuine chemistry that Alec literally blushes and THAT SMILE. It’s beautiful.

  • Fandom: MATTHEW DADDARIO YOU STOP RIGHT THERE DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT YOU JUST DID THERE ARE GOING TO BE FUNERALS. LOTS AND LOTS OF FUNERALS BECAUSE YOU JUST COULDN'T KEEP THE ALEC IN YOU HIDDEN. MATT SAID THE WORDS. MY MAN. M Y M A N. ALEC'S MAN. SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE MY DEAR FANDOM GOOD-FUCKING-BYE
The cast is clearly taking advantage of looser time restraints to play with their characters – wonderfully showcased at several points – though it is perhaps most prominent when Daddario and Shum Jr. share the screen. Their overwhelming, natural chemistry either hits you square in the face or creeps on like a blush. Great thought has been used in every aspect of their portrayals – noticeably in the simple way they speak through touch – and the results are quietly moving. As a ‘Malec’ fan, I was on the floor absolutely beside myself. As an objective viewer, some moments looked far too real to be scripted (you may or may not see Alec Lightwood actually blush). I would not be surprised to learn the two were ad-libbing.

Magnus’ magic has also been overhauled, now an icy blue that sparkles like liquid diamonds; lively, reactionary and very much a part of him, moving with Harry Shum Jr.’s impressive choreography like never before. Even the sound of his magic has been redesigned – where season one’s magic sounded tinny and airy, now it is electrical, sizzling through beats of wind with every movement he makes. It’s mesmerizing, beautiful and oddly soothing, and an extension of our favorite High Warlock that is utterly worthy of him. Also worthy are his new cat’s eyes, which appear a little more fey, more dangerous. They come on slower too, which gives the unnerving impression of a real demonic entity lounging within him.

Okay so I read somewhere that it was Alec who Magnus threw against a wall. FIRST OF ALL HOW COULD YOU THINK THAT. MAGNUS WOULD NEVER HURT ALEC 

 "He recognized and accepted this strange new feeling: that he would rather be hurt himself than hurt Alexander”.
