Can we talk about about that last Sanvers scene a little bit
more? Because yes we talked about the sexual tension and Oh! My!
God! it is out of this world. But can we talk about how respectful Maggie
Let me explain :
Maggie is clearly restraining herself from touching Alex (arm
crossed…). Her body language screams her will to touch the woman she loves and
almost lost. So why aren’t they all over
each other already you might ask?
Well, they are at Alex’s work. Alex might be out to the people
close to her, but probably not to the whole DEO? Why would they know about
And I get it, I totally get it. We’ve all wonder whether or not to be out in
our place of work. We’ve all been scared of the consequences, the judgments, the
changes… It is obviously not Maggie’s decision to make. So she waits. She
waits for Alex to be ready. She waits for her to do the first move.
And Alex did the first move. And not just a simple move, she
puts her arm around Maggie clearly and proudly showing her love.
So yes, this scene is shining in sexual tension, but the
respect, the wait for Alex’s consent that Maggie have in this scene is what’s
getting me emotional.
I think this scene mark a new step in their relationship. Let’s
remember that outside of the missions, we’ve only seen them at Alex’s or at the alien bar (aka their “safe
space”) but we never really saw them in public. And for the
first time at the DEO, on those stairs, a place that everyone in the DEO can
see, Alex comes out and show to her whole world that Maggie Sawyer is hers.
So yes we can complain about how short and rushed the
Sanvers scenes are, but the evolution of their relationship is so slow,
intense and healthy, it is giving me life.
And all becomes clear. Wish I could make you see this brightness. Don’t worry, all is well. All is so perfectly, damnably well. I understand now, that boundaries between noise and sound are conventions. All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended. One may transcend any convention, if only one can first conceive of doing so. Moments like this, I can feel your heart beating as clearly as I feel my own, and I know that separation is an illusion. My life extends far beyond the limitations of me.
Okayyyyy, so I don’t really even know where to begin so i’ll just start with the basics….
The taping was basically described as the most elaborate, craziest show they’ve had to date which made me super excited and left my expectations crazy high and let me just say….Z and Tom DID NOT disappoint. The show is actually set to air next month before the mtv movie awards where I believe LL said tom and z will present an exclusive spiderman scene.
Can I just say I love Chrissy so damn much!? She’s hilarious and so down to earth. She literally walked to the stage to ask the audience if the bruise on her inner thigh was visible. Later saying it was all John’s fault lol.
I saw both Z and tom’s squad… Z had dej, one of her younger nieces, Zink, cubb, kamil and his brother, her dad, sis, darnell, Dom onstage, and a few others i didn’t recognize. Tom had Harrison and later on Jacob showed up.
So, first round….AMAZING! Z went first and she chose a very Z song…full of shade and sass. Tom went next and also did not disappoint, the boy has swag. First round involved hairwraps, gold chains, camo, and early 2000s jams..you’ll see.
Okay so inbetween stage setups was one of my favorite things ever. Zendaya looked towards the balcony where i was standing and smiled and waved and like, it was like time froze and I died cause she’s fucking zendaya and she’s literal perfection. Inbetween setup, z and tom lip synced to Don’t Stop Believing to entertain the audience a little. Tom lip synced while Z milly rocked lmao. You can totally see that they’re homies and super comfortable with each other. My friend fell in love with Tom just because the boy is damn gorgeous and he has a swag about him. He’s also super awkward and adorable lol
Second and final round….honestly, these performances will go down in lip sync battle history. You know how everyone and they mama saw JGL do Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation…well these are just as epic… or maybe i’m just biased. This round involved giant champagne bottles full of confetti, some black latexy outfits straight out of a missy elliot video, dancing in water, john legend, and spidey hanging upside down… just wait until you see it.
I won’t spoil the winner but if you REALLY want to know, private message me. To summarize Z was just Z and is legit such a chameleon. Tom was a pleasant surprise. I left the taping a total Tom fangirl lol. The experience as a whole was so much fun!
Finally I can write about this fantastic, intense, emotional episode which is by far with 215, the best episode of the season. An episode focus on the women of the show, and that’s what Supergirl is. It’s about women. The title is “Alex” but it could have been “Kara”, “Maggie”, “Danvers” or “The Fantastic Four”, 219 was all about them. We finally have Kara/Maggie connection, Maggie as an amazing detective, Sanvers L word’s scene and Lena. It’s the episode I was waiting for.
Now, recap (sorry it’s a long post):
Kara:“She’s my Sister”. Our precious little Danvers. Kara could move every mountain, could cross every galaxy for Alex.
It’s a fact, this season, we kind of lost Kara, The Danvers Sisters have been sidelined, but 219 is here to remind us that Kara is the Soul, Alex is the Heart, Kara’s Heart. And it feels good, it’s beautiful. Kara and Jonn scene outside the DEO is a tresor… Kara loves Alex so much, Alex is Kara’s world.
Also, Kara has more development in one episode than during this whole fucking season. Kara learnt that sometimes, having super powers is useless… or if I can say, not enough. Kara Danvers, is the strongest, the most beautiful and inspiring Hero when she is a Super Human Girl (remind me of episode 7 in season 1). I love her.
Alex: “You’re a badass Danvers”. She is. But she’s more than that. Well, she can’t cook but Alex believes in others, she trust the ones she loves, she is sensitive. She loves Kara, she loves Maggie. “I knew you were coming”, she never gave up, she held on, she held on love. The scene at the end when she’s surrounded by Kara and Maggie is everything.
Since season 1 and by what she represents, Alex Danvers is one of the best tv character ever created. Thanks to the Gods, Chyler Leigh is Alex Danvers.
Winn: Winn the little brother. How can you not love him? Winn is family.
James: Ok. James saved Alex twice in 215. 219: Alex is in a fucking water tank and James is on holidays. Why not… Good to know, he’s back in 220.
Jonn: Space Dad. Don’t mess with his girls, Kara, Alex and now Maggie or he’ll be there waiting for you. Jonn for what he represents: the father, the mentor, the safe home, is important. CW don’t mess up.
MonPrince: Ok. Seriously, it’s getting ridiculous and I feel bad for Chris Wood. I watched him recently on V.D and Chris Wood can fucking act. Bonus, as the villain, he’s really good. So, if in season 3, the writers could give him an interesting storyline, something deeper and complex, I would probably stop rolling my eyes when Mon-El is on screen.
Rhea: Rhea is here since 3 episodes and I’m more interested in her development and what she is up to than her son. By the way, Teri as a villain, you are FABULOUS.
Lena: In a record time Lena knew that Rhea is an Alien, but they want us to believe that she still doesn’t know about Kara… What kind of joke is that?
I hope the writers didn’t decide to turn Lena as a villain by being brainwashed. But, I would love to see her fighting for not falling into the dark side. Anyway, as always, Lena was great in 219.
Karamel: I still dont understand, what kind of relationship is that?
Supercorp:“Brunch next saturday”. Even through the phone they shine together. I’m looking forward for what’s gonna happen next. The connection between Melissa and Katie is amazing.
Sanvers: “A Lifetime of Firsts”.The L word’s scene is just beautiful.Sanvers is love, Sanvers is real. I’m not saying this because Alex survived, we knew she’s gonna survive, it’s more than that. It’s the whole development of their story. It makes you feel and believe that it’s possible to find someone, one day, that will stand by you no matter what happen. “Hold on until I get to you”, in these dark times, hold on to Sanvers. They’re hope.
The Danvers Sisters: “Alex”, “Kara”. This episode is full of the Danvers Sisters HeartBeat. Kara can loses control on everything when Alex is in danger, she doesn’t even think, she goes. From “Supergirl is bigger than me” showing us how much Alex believes in her sister to “I’m listenning for her”, which is an important, emotional line because it shows how Kara tries to relax, to find some peace for Alex, because Alex is Kara’s world. Alex held on, Kara held on, They held on.
The Danvers Sisters are the most important relationship of the show.
Kara and Maggie: “We made a pretty good team, didn’t we”.I loved them. I was waiting for an episode with them since 204. Even if it’s late in the season, it was worth to wait.
Kara and Maggie are different, they work in a different way, they don’t share the same opinion, they don’t listen to each other but they have one common point: Their love for Alex. The scene between Kara and Maggie in the DEO when Maggie tells Kara “I have just as much to lose as you”, is the moment where it hit Kara (she’s almost in tears): Love is not a question of how long, love is not a competition, love is love. It’s about what you’re living now, what you feel. Kara didn’t realize that another woman could love Alex as much as her and could fight and give up everything for her until this moment. Kara and Maggie learnt from each other, they learnt to work together, to listen, to share. Maggie was ready to lose her job and Kara understood that with words you can change the day and save the love. The moment she broke the glass is powerful.
Kara and Maggie teach us that with our differences we should complete each other instead of fighting because Together, We Are Stronger. So yes, Kara and Maggie made a pretty good team and their hug, their smile, at the end are precious and important. Melissa and Floriana were fantastic. I hope we’ll see more of them in the future.
Maggie: “I love you Alex Danvers”. Maggie Sawyer is not just the best character right now in season 2, she’s also the one with the best development. She went from being that tough cop and “See you around Danvers” to that woman who is ready to lose everything to save the person she’s in love with. Maggie Sawyer went through a difficult past, outed and family issues, she had to fight, she had to be strong, she had to hold on to keep going in the life. And one day, on a crime scene, here comes the light in the night. She met Alex, and her world changed again but this time for the best. Maggie Sawyer is life.
The laptop speech’s scene is iconic and the “I got her to be herself” is as important as “We should be who we are” or “You’re real”. Maggie Sawyer is important and iconic. Maggie Sawyer is ready to be happy with Alex Danvers. Let her live a real full, happy life.
Oh and I almost forgot: Gertrude the dog, really Sanvers?
Snape Appreciation Month: Day #20 - A Scene You Wanted to Be in the Films
Where do I start!
I would like to see the second quidditch match when Snape was a referee. He would look gorgeous!
I also would want to see the potion lesson from the therd book, when Severus fed a few drops of Neville’s potion to Trevor. Although I feel movie Severus would never do such thing, I still think this scene would edd an extra depth to the plot and to the whole “Neville beeng afrade of Snape” thing.
I really want an expansion to the Spinner’s End scene… Because I just love this chapter in the book and I would like to see more!
And the last but not least. The confrontation between Sirius and Severus from The Orden Of The Finex in the chapter Occlumency! We see Snape interact with Sirius only ones or twice in the films (correct me if I am wrong), but this epic scene would establish the relationships between the two further juuuust great! But I guess nothing could be perfect
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I still adore the films as they are 💜
