“A lot of secrets have been brewing this season,” executive producer Ali Adler acknowledges, promising that “we’ll get definitive answers” in the back half. For starters, we’ll find out what Mon-El is hiding, and why he claims not to remember “that almost unsatisfying kiss” he shared with Kara. “We’ll explore more of that relationship,” Adler says. “Kara still has to figure out how she feels about him.” Meanwhile, Alex and Maggie face a new crop of “complications”; Winn will learn “what it means to be a hero” (and will “get a little taste of love” for himself); Lena and Kara grow “closer,” leading to a possible shift in the Luthor/Super dynamic; and an army of enemies will emerge, including legendary DC Comics prankster Mr. Mxyzptlk. (“He’s a really funny character, and we’re going to get a lot of that humor.”)

RETURN DATE: Monday, Jan. 23 at 8/7c (The CW) (x)

you know, what i get from the quotes of ali adler about supergirl is that mon el found that kiss “almost unsatisfying” bc he’s hiding he’s actually gay, winn gets “a little taste of love” for himself so i’m assuming mon el realizes he’s actually in love with him and they get together, also lena and kara grow “closer” and that means they’ll look past that luthor-super rivalry and they’ll both realize they’re in love with each other, and alex and maggie face “complications” which i’m assuming means they argue in which apartment they live together now

all in all everyone is gay and i’m happy

The episode just aired and I’ve watched those scenes a dozen times. Not the kiss. Usually it’s the kiss we representation-starved fans re-watch, re-blog, and re-post. Don’t get me wrong, I watched the kiss twice (duh the amazing Chyler Leigh is finally playing gay). I re-watched Alex tell Kara. First just to hear my story told again. Then to focus on Chyler Leigh’s acting. Then Melissa Benoist’s acting.

Kara apologizing to Alex and verbalizing the correlation between her secret and Alex’s that we’ve all related to from day one. Alex realizing Kara accepts her. All the love.

And finally, the scene where Alex regrets admitting her feelings and putting herself out there. I’ve watvhed this the most. The writing. The acting. Everything about it speaks to me.

I’ve loved this show from the pilot and it is due to the relationship between the Danvers sisters. They let these two actresses wrench our hearts out with their amazing emotional performances. Every Alex scene where she is pouring her heart out to Kara. Especially, For The Girl Who Has Everything.

Supergirl defeating the Red Tornado and screaming out all her pain and frustration. When she wakes up from Red Kryptonite and immediately breaks down.

I’m here for this show. Here for these strong female characters. Here for this amazingly realistic queer storyline. Here for these actresses.
