How to Romance Thane in Mass Effect 2

There are two essential things that players must do in order to romantic Thane in 2 . Mass Effect:

  • Play as a female Shepard
  • Earn Thane’s Loyalty

The first step to starting a relationship with Thane is to recruit him for suicide mission in 2 . Mass Effect by going to Illium. The player can choose any of the dialogue options during this mission, as nothing will lock the relationship with the assassin at this time.

Once Thane has been recruited, he can be found in the Life Support Control Room on the deck of Crew’s Quarters in Normandy in 2 . Mass Effect. However, there will be no chance to begin a romance with him until his duty of loyalty has been completed. While on duty, make sure Shepard lets Thane know Thane Talid’s exact location before the timer runs out, otherwise Talid will die and Thane will be disloyal to Shepard.

When Thane’s Loyalty Mission in 2 . Mass Effect completed, players can now visit him in the Life Support Control Room to take the next steps in the duo’s relationship. Continue talking to Thane until the option to ask about him appears, then select it. He will go into more detail about his wife, and players can start a relationship with Thane by choosing “I want you, Thane” when it appeared.

Keep checking back in with Thane after completing the main and side quests, and the final romantic side story will continue when the player asks to talk about him again. Make sure to select “I care about you too” to continue the romance when Thane fully admitted his feelings for Shepard.

If the player is also pursuing romance with Garrus in 2 . Mass Effect, or Jacob, they will have to stop and tell Thane that they just want him to continue their relationship. There’s an additional short conversation Shepard can have with Thane about their feelings for each other. Choose “I’m fine” to continue romantically with him.
