1. At the beginning of the episode, we saw young Alec and Jace meet for the first time.
Alec almost shot his soon-to-be friend with an arrow, and mini Jace wowed us all with his knife-throwing skills!
2. Then we got to watch teenage Jalec go on a Demon hunt together.
Try sneaking up on this pair. We dare you.
3. Alec was just as sassy back then as he is now!
The same goes for Jace's level of self confidence...
4. They had the perfect system! Jace was the bait...
And what beautiful bait he is.
5. And Alec was the secret weapon!
That Demon didn't see it coming.
6. Jace was so excited about the two becoming brothers!
After all, for a long time he didn't have any family.
7. But our boy Alec seemed less enthusiastic.
It's so hard to read that guy.
8. He tried to talk to Izzy about his fears.
She knew that having a Parabatai had been Alec's childhood dream. Our girl would never let her brother throw that chance away.
9. Meanwhile, present day Alec was still unconscious and Jace was on the run from the Werewolves!
See how much trouble they get into when they're apart? Disaster.
10. Jace was willing to let Maia kill him so long as he got the chance to save Alec.
He would make any sacrifice to protect his Parabatai. Literally.
11. The look on his face when he saw his comatose brother was heartbreaking.
He probably didn't realize how bad it was until that moment.
12. In another flashback, teenage Jace and Izzy were waiting to start the Parabatai ceremony.
But Alec was nowhere to be seen.
13. At the last minute, teenage Alec arrived to join his best friend and teammate.
We knew he wouldn't leave his buddy hanging.
14. Present day Jace began to say the sacred oath to call his Parabatai...
15. While teenage Jace said the same oath to forge an ancient bond with Alec.
He was so confident about binding his life with Alec's forever.
16. Then our Alec started to slip away!
For a second there we thought... *shudder*
17. But his connection with Jace was so strong that he was able to come back from the brink!
That moment was intense. And so emotional.
Jalec were crying. Clizzy and Magnus were crying. We were crying.
19. Then Aldertree arrived to arrest Jace, but Jace didn't even care.
He saved his brother. We call that a job well done.
ALEC ALMOST DIED AND JACE HAS BEEN ARRESTED! So just a normal day for the Shadowhunters...
