'Shadowhunters' Season 3 episode 16 teaser proved we need to talk about Sizzy
Let's just hope the showrunners don't tease us any longer and finally give us the ever so tender but passionate kiss between Simon and Izzy we saw in the season's trailer
This article contains spoilers for 'Shadowhunters' season 3B.
The official trailer for Freeform's popular fantasy show, 'Shadowhunters' season 3B's upcoming episode 16, titled 'Stay with Me,' is out, but while it might be emotionally draining for Malec fans, an additional teaser released by the network offers a lot of perks for those on Team Sizzy.
After the extremely tense cliffhanger episode 15 ended on, we finally knew what's afflicting Malec - aka Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood - but there's another Lightwood that we have to watch out for on the romantic front, and that's Izzy, and her growing bond with Simon Lewis. Over the second half of season 3, Simon and Izzy aka Sizzy have given hope to fans who have been begging for a romantic liaison between the two, and if the teaser for episode 16 is anything to go by, their wishes are quite close to being realized.
Episode 15, titled 'To The Night Children,' showed a touching moment between Izzy (Emeraude Toubia) and her ex-boyfriend, Raphael, as the two of them found closure after a deadly battle with addiction to vampire venom, which the both of them were suffering from. Raphael came clean about how he would always care for Izzy, and she admitted the feeling was mutual. But while the two decided to be mature about their break up and move on with their lives, Izzy wasn't sure she would be able to handle that kind of intense pain in love again.
She remarks how seeing her brother Alec (Matthew Daddario), and his boyfriend, Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.), go through the biggest test their relationship has been through, was quite the moment of bitter realization for her. And that doesn't come as a shock as Magnus can be seen battling for his life at the hospital, in the official trailer for episode 16 (below).
That, and observing the hassles that her best friend Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara) is going through in her relationship with Jace Herondale (Dominic Sherwood), is what makes Izzy confide in Simon, that she is not sure if she wants love in her life at all. The two discuss the topic of love while walking along a New York subway, on what looks like another joint mission the two have set out on together.
But Simon's concern for Izzy's emotional state and his perception about love and relationships that resonate with Izzy's are what leads us to be further convinced there is something far bigger than friendship that's budding between the two. At the end of the video, Simon might have made a pinky swear with Izzy to remain single with her forever, but we all know how pacts like these mostly end up.
Let's just hope the showrunners won't keep teasing us any longer, and finally give us the ever so tender but passionate kiss between Simon and Izzy that the official trailer of this season had shown, and all will be well in the world once again!
'Shadowhunters' returns with episode 16, 'Stay With Me,' Monday, April 1, at 8/7c, only on Freeform.
