so, we all know that originally Tulio & Miguel were meant to be a married couple. and we have them saying these parting words, which’s kinda funny and all-

BUT

in Russian dubbing the above convo goes WAY better and really changes the story.

it starts with Tulio, saying: “Well, we’ve been friends…”

then Miguel adds, quite timidly: “I just want you to know… I’ve been admiring you for a long time-

and Tulio ends with: “Same here.”

so, it’s like Miguel wants to confess his eternal love for Tulio, then they’re interrupted, then there’s Chel, and then Miguel goes all nuts and angry bc he had no chance to say ‘i love you, pardner’ (and it was kinda obvious to me when i was a kid, okay, it was literally the only plot i knew back then!)

*DC Show Writers trying to compare Karamel (who have only been together for like 5 seconds and who have only known each other for like a few months, who are constantly arguing and disrespecting each other, who are painfully awkward and just awful together) to WestAllen (who have known each other since they were kids, who constantly encourage and support each other)

me: “Get the boys, we’re going to war”

OKAY but like what if Lena finds out Kara is Supergirl later because Lena is pushed to the brink and Supergirl is there and she can’t talk her down, but she knows that she’ll listen to Kara so she just goes “I promised that I’ll always protect you. Please let me do that for you now.”

And Lena just breaks down and Kara just holds her.

No offence, Kara, but there was literally no need to mention Kara Danvers in any of these situations lmao

In the first gif, Lena says, “Supergirl! I can’t believe you’re here!”, and Supergirl’s response is not “I believe in you”, which would have worked just fine; no, it’s Kara Danvers who has faith in Lena, and she wants Lena to know that.

In the second gif, Lena asks her how she knew that she was in danger. Instead of just saying “I have superhearing and heard that you were in danger”, she uses the “Kara Danvers sent me to save you” excuse again.

In the third gif, there is an alien invasion going on, so of course Supergirl would be there to save as many people as possible; especially Lena, who considers not only Kara but also Supergirl her friend, and vice versa. Obviously Supergirl would try to save her friend. But again, it’s Kara Danvers who sent Supergirl, as if Supergirl would have no reason to do so on her own.
She’s definitely not saying that because of Mon-El. He knows Kara is Supergirl, so it was obviously Lena who she wants to believe that Kara wants her safe.
And she’s even putting her secret identity at risk here, because Lena knows Kara is dating Mike, but Mon-El is there as himself without glasses, and why would Kara Danvers want to save Mon-El?

So why would she willingly make a connection between Supergirl and Kara over and over again?

Honestly, the only logical  explanation why she always tells Lena that Kara Danvers wants to save her is that Kara wants to deepen her relationship with Lena, to impress her and to show her affection and how much she cares about her. And they already are best friends, and Kara is Lena’s only friend, so technically there is no need for Kara to keep doing this… unless she wants something more.
