Alec walks casually into Magnus' apartment as if he lives there.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1003
Because dreams. 

Magnus is clearly still feeling rejected but is willing to try again!

For real. 

Alec fighting feelings!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1006
He thinks Malec is treating this like it's all a game! 

Magnus. Hurt but resigned. Plus an ultimatum.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1007

Alec turning back one more time when Magnus had already vanished.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1008
What were you going to say, Alec? Will we ever know?

Magnus talking to Clary and Jace about his desire to avoid Alec.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1009

Nice try, buddy!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1010

Awkward sexual tension that even Lydia notices...

Oh no, he's turning on the smolder.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1012

While Magnus hides his heartbreak under a layer of sarcasm!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1013
As usual...

Later, Izzy brings up the Malec-sized elephant in the room.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1014
But backs down when Alec gets defensive.

Alec is surprised and possibly...disappointed?

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1015
Does he want Izzy to talk him out of the wedding?

Magnus hanging out with Clace...

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1016
A nice stroll through the countryside.

Then later regretting that decision.

And we can see that there is a battle waging inside Alec.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1021
Head vs. heart!

Ragnor tells Magnus to fight for love when he finds it.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1022
For a dead guy, that Warlock gives great advice.

And Magnus is inspired to give Malec one more chance!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1023

At the wedding ceremony, Alec looks extremely anxious.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1024
That is not a happy groom-to-be face.

Jace is also worried that this is a big mistake!

#BrosBeforeBrides

And then Magnus bursts through the doors!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1026
What a dramatic entrance!

This! Oh God, Alec! We know!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1027

Magnus won't let Alec's controlling mother get in the way of their love story.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1028

And Alec's bride-to-be GETS it.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1029
It's bigger than both of them. 

Then.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1030

And Izzy is super proud of her big brother.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1034

And It turns out that Simon ships Malec harder than anyone!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1035
Like, we get it. 

Magnus and Alec are jointly confused by Simon's reaction.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1036
And his re-enactment of that scene from "The Graduate".

Then things just get downright adorable.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1037

Maryse tries to ruin it but she can't!

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1038
Also, less of the Downworlder hate, please. 

At least Papa Lightwood is slightly more understanding.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1039
He asks if they're in love and Alec gets adorably tongue-tied! Again, cute like crazy. 

Adorable save from Magnus.

Shadowhunters - A Malecsplosion: The Most Amazing, Magical, Romantic Moments From Episode 12! - 1041

And Alec asks Magnus on a first date!!
