The Mason-Alex relationship is the romantic pairing of Mason Greybeck and Alex Russo. It is often referred to by fans as "Malex" (Ma/son, A/lex)


Season 3

The two first met in art class, where Mason complimented Alex on her artwork and fell in love at first sight. Later, Alex realized that dogs were his muse, and after laughing at this, he became upset towards Alex. She then used a muse shell to make Mason change his mind, but it didn't go well. She soon undid the spell after a while, and while the mural of her was washing away in the rain, Mason kissed her for the first time.

In the Wizards vs. Werewolves special, Alex and Mason fell more and more in love but didn't reveal their true race to each other. Alex started to suspect that Mason was cheating on her when he kept leaving their dates early, and hatched a scheme with Harper to follow him. Both girls soon ran into him, and despise his pleas for them to leave, saw him transform into a werewolf. Alex then revealed she was a wizard to him, although Harper tried to make her look desperate.  Soon Alex, seeing how upset her brother Justin was about losing his girlfriend, Juliet to an evil mummy, convinced Mason to go looking for her with his dog-like smelling ability because Alex wanted Justin to be as happy as Mason and her were. They travelled to Transylvania, where the evil mummy was defeated by Alex and Justin's younger brother Max. When Mason discovered the vampire he was hunting down was his ex-girlfriend, he impulsively told Juliet he still loved her. Alex took a magical necklace that glowed when the wearer was in love with the person who gave it to them and threw it away, confirming their breakup. Juliet then told Mason what they had was great, but Justin was her soulmate. Mason then convinced Alex to go back to Transylvania with him to prove he loved her with the necklace. After a fight with Juliet and Justin, Mason proved that he loved Alex. But since during the fight Mason scratches Juliet and Juliet bites Mason. When a werewolf scratches a vampire they lose their vampire powers and when a vampire bites a werewolf they turn into a full wolf. Mason runs of into the woods after turning into a wolf.

In Wizards Unleashed, Alex sees a news report about a painting dog and thinks it's Mason. Alex, Justin, and Max go to the home of the people who have Mason.

They turn him back later in the episode.
