When we first met Sebastian, we had no reason to suspect that he wasn't the beautiful, kindhearted Shadowhunter, Sebastian Verlac. But now that we know his true identity, it's time to remind ourselves of how he made us fall in love with him in the first place. Read on to check out all the ways he had us fooled and then watch the latest episodes of Shadowhunters here on Freeform.
1. He saved Izzy from Azazel.
Later, we found out that Sebastian had planned the whole thing. He freed Azazel and organized the attack on Izzy. By saving her, he ensured that he would be welcomed into the Institute.
2. And he looked after her when she was at her weakest.
He claimed he had been a Yin Fen addict too, and could help Izzy beat her addiction. Did he lie about that too?
3. In fact, Sebastian was kind and friendly to the whole team.
There was no way to know his true nature.
4. And let's face it, he has an adorable smile.
It shocked us that someone who looks so angelic had so much darkness in him. Plus, that accent just melted our hearts.
5. He helped Clary with her new rune abilities.
And gave her the confidence to trust her emotions.
6. He warned Raphael to stay away from Izzy.
We thought he was being a good friend and protecting Izzy from someone he saw as a bad influence. But now we realize Sebastian was scared of Raphael, who saw through his charm immediately.
7. He seemed to really bond with Jace.
Sebastian has proven himself as a master manipulator. He managed to get on the good side of everyone he met at the Institute.
8. And he gave Izzy a confidence boost when she was doubting herself.
Even though he has done terrible things, we're still grateful for how he helped Izzy. Could there be some humanity in Sebastian after all?
9. He stopped Luke from killing Valentine.
Now we know he wanted Valentine for his own evil purposes, but at the time we thought he was doing his duty as a Shadowhunter.
10. He was able to hide his true appearance for so long.
Sebastian Verlac's body was the perfect disguise, we would never have recognized him as Valentine's son.
