December 23, 2016: “Supergirl” – Exploring the Alex/Maggie Relationship

Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg has told that they’ll exploring the relationship between Alex Danvers and Maggie Sawyer quite a bit in the second half of the current season of “Supergirl”, although there will be a few bumps in the road ahead.

“The important thing is that we’re committed to this relationship and we’re committed to seeing it grow, change, blossom, and struggle, but also get stronger, deeper and more loving as we go forward,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “I don’t think people need to worry that suddenly this relationship is going to go by the wayside. It’s going to have it’s ups and downs, but we’re committed to Alex and Maggie – we’re as committed to Alex and Maggie as the audience is.”

“Supergirl” returns to The CW on Monday, January 23 with the episode titled “Supergirl Lives”.

While the build up was a bit rushed Alex’s story has been a positive thing for a lot of people and I also think it strengthened Kara’s bond with her sister showing that it’s not just Kara’s own struggles that are important in their relationship. Basically it was cool seeing Kara being the one Alex could lean on rather then the other way around. It lets Kara be a hero in a different way from flying and punching. (Even though we do still very much love that.) It’s interesting because giving Kara a sister is one of those moves that… Read more »

Well it is going to depend on how intense that their going to go with this. For ME…..I don’t mind the relationship as long as they don’t make it a focal point of this show. I don’t need or want to see the trials and tribulations of relationships in this show, gay or straight!

Understandable. You don’t want it to be a soap opera.
I’m not worried about that too much just because even though sometimes the romance angles on CW shows can be a bit soapy maybe because that was kind of their main thing before the superhero stuff got so big at the end of the day they know it’s a superhero show first and foremost. Still plenty of action, sci-fi, and heroics to be had. ..and in fairness romance angles have to varying degrees through the ages always been part of superhero comics to.

I concur here as well. But STILL the main relationship is Kara and Alex. It’s the foundation.

Hopefully romance doesn’t become a staple with this show. People rolled their eyes at Superman arriving at Supergirl. Either afraid that Superman would steal her thunder(he did, definitely) and because they don’t like her being relegated as a sidekick(she wasn’t, and it was great). They had this fear that the entire show would be bogged down for them. Despite romantic relationships in shows like this doing exactly that. Same people are entirely glad that these relationships are being explored, despite romance being, arguably, the show’s weakest aspect. Platonic relationships like Clark and Kara is just what she needed. It showed… Read more »
