16 Reasons We Want Simon And Maia To Be Best Friends After Watching S2E6

They both love video games! This cannot be a coincidence.


This week on Shadowhunters, Maia and Simon went off on a mission to find Luke and bring him home.

At first they were kind of reluctant partners, but as they spent more time together they actually started to act like friends. Simon is adorable and dorky, while Maia is sarcastic and fierce. But they worked really well together and managed to save Luke from himself. Here are the many reasons why we LOVE this little duo:

1. Maia is really blunt.

This girl says it like it is.

2. Actually, Maia and Simon are both really honest people!

They have at least one thing in common.

3. At first, Maia didn't want Simon to come with her to find Luke.

But she was actually looking out for him! She knew it could be dangerous.

4. She tried to warn Simon to stay away, but he wouldn't listen.

Luke is like a father to him and Clary. There's no way Simon would give up on him.

5. In the end, they decided to work together!
