'Shadowhunters' Season 3B episode 12: Fans were given Clace, Sizzy and Malec, and they can't stop buzzing about it
A Clace reunion, a steamy Malec, and the most adorably quirky Sizzy - all arrived in the same episode. Talk about miracles!
This article contains spoilers for 'Shadowhunters' season 3B episode 12: 'Original Sin.'
'Shadowhunters' dropped its episode 12 of season 3B Monday, and looking by the responses from fans, it's been legendary, both in terms of teasing them, and offering them enough material to drool and gush over for the coming week until its next episode. While fans are happy that the much deserved and anticipated Clace reunion finally happened, they also felt the pangs of being teased to no extent by a new and revamped Malec, and, of course, by how quirky yet inevitable the budding Sizzy romance looks like.
The official synopsis of the episode reveals: "Simon tries to track down New York's oldest vampire to get more information on the Mark of Cain; now in Paris, Clary desperately attempts to find an escape from her current situation; Magnus tries to live life to the very fullest." So, lets dive into what went down.
So basically, Jace Herondale (Dominic Sherwood) was finally able to track Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara) in Paris, where she has found herself stranded, thus giving viewers one of the most touching, and emotional reunions ever. In one particular scene, Jace tells Clary he can't believe he is holding her and it resonates with the rest of the fans, because after being presumed dead from the Mark of Cain explosion, this return of Clary is monumental and changes a lot of things for everyone.
Not only can the rest of her friends recover from the guilt of not being able to save her, they can also finally work on their mission to destroy the new antagonist, and Clary's evil half-brother, Jonathan Morgenstern (Luke Baines).
I'll never get over it how Clary and Jace's smiled after their kiss. this is the cutest thing of all time 😍— antonietta ➰ (@xheavenlyclace) March 5, 2019

But that wasn't the only high point of the episode, because fans couldn't help gushing over how Simon Lewis (Alberto Rosende) and Izzy Lightwood (Emeraude Toubia) are finally blending in so perfectly, especially since they are growing into something more than just friends. Both of them are Clary's close friends, so it is understandable why they are so driven to ruin the Mark that lost them their friend.
As they embark on this mission and are fronted with the biggest crisis of the season so far, what's remarkable is how neither of them drop their characteristic demeanors. Simon is still the quirky goofball, and Izzy is still the compact package of sass and bada**ery as the two polar opposites try to ruin the Mark. And that appealed to the fans too.

In all of this action, somehow, Malec still reigns on the couple-goals list because there are no fathomable limits to the appeal of their relationship. True, Magnus Bane (Harry Shum Jr.) is trying to cope with the loss of his powers, but that makes him all the more attentive and homely towards his boyfriend, Alec Lightwood (Matthew Daddario).
This somehow makes them evolve as a couple too, because of Magnus' keenness in living his newly turned mortal life to the fullest. And we all know what that means - yes, the very steamy Malec workout scene that fans haven't been able to get over.
