Okay so, on the one hand, I don't want Maggie to say no. But on the OTHER hand, it's too soon in my opinion, and the proposal was lackluster, so I wouldn't mind if Maggie said "not yet, but someday."
Honestly, I’m very conflicted about the proposal. I want to be happy, but this screams of drama for Sanvers next season. Impulsive proposals usually go horribly wrong on TV shows and usually end up causing the couple to either be distant or at odds with one another or break up altogether. However, Maggie’s smile at the end of the scene could indicate that she’s happy about it and says yes, so who knows.
I kind of like the “not yet, but someday” reaction, but once again, those open up very big doors for hurt feelings and angst between them. Look at how Alex reacted when Maggie supposedly didn’t reciprocate her feelings when she first kissed her. It was impulsive and didn’t go the way she wanted and she was hurt by the rejection. Even if Maggie says not yet, that still could count in Alex’s eyes as a semi-rejection so would she react the way she normally would and distance herself? Quite possibly, but they’ve also grown in their relationship so maybe she wouldn’t. Either way, it’s too much margin for unnecessary drama in their relationship and it usually ends badly.
Now, the proposal itself was very underwhelming and lackluster. That’s not to say I didn’t smile like an idiot during it, but now that I’ve had time to think about it, no one can deny it wasn’t. I never expected a grand gesture or fancy romantic scenery for their proposal, but the scene was way too short. There was no build up in the scene itself and there was very little time for everyone to process what just happened before the episode moved on to the next day at Catco. I just expected a little better, but I still liked it for the most part.
Really, I hope Maggie says yes because I don’t want to deal with all the bullshit drama that comes from her saying no or not yet. And I would be surprised if she didn’t given the way the writers have dealt with Sanvers.
