I wonder about how much Maggie knows about everything Alex has done… like do they sit down and talk about “remember when Alex Badass Danvers solved the molecular properties of an alien super axe in a matter of hours and applied that to stop the alien axe murderer?”
Because like… little recap… and this is just what I remember off the tip of my tongue… Alex convinced a 300 year old alien refugee who’d been hiding out as a human for decades that it was okay to reveal his true identity because she cared about him and wanted to work with him, she’s one v one’d a Helgrumite (while injured) and come out the winner, she fought a Kryptonian general… and admitted to Kara that she’d killed Astra because she refused to let J'onn continue to take the blame even if it meant Kara would hate her (but Kara’s a good person, too, so it was okay), she flew a dilapidated space pod back into space (after taking maybe ten minutes to get it operable) to save Kara “I’m gonna fling myself into space” Danvers, she broke mind control because she’s incapable of hurting anyone she cares about, she put on the same hell suit she’d been wearing when that happened to help fight a set of genetically altered Krypto-villains and won (with help), she went toe to toe with one of the world’s deadliest assassins (who had a gun) and kicked his ass (Lena helped I guess but still), she took a fireball to the face and all that did was piss her off, she came out to her family (kudos to them for being good people about it), she jumped through a portal to an unknown planet without a second thought and fought aliens because that’s what she does (she’s a good shot), she covered for Winn and James when they still wouldn’t tell Kara about the Guardian scheme because she’s a good friend who’s not going to tell people how to live she’s just going to make sure they stay safe as possible, and (this is my personal favorite) literally went vigilante on Cadmus, set up several tons of explosive power around an abandoned warehouse (WITHOUT GETTING CAUGHT), convinced Jeremiah to turn on Cadmus (even after he’d been brainwashed for Luke ten years), ACTIVATED SAID EXPLOSIVES IN A VERY EPIC FUCK YOU TO CADMUS BECAUSE “BITCH SAY I WONT” because, dammit, she’s going to save her father, and then charged face-first onto a ship launching itself into orbit because she’s gonna save people who did nothing wrong, AND THEN inspired Kara to be able to stop said ship.
And she still comes home to Maggie and tells her that she’s there to help Maggie heal… emotionally. Does Maggie even know? Does Maggie even know about Alex Bitch-say-I-Won’t Danvers? In any case, someone should tell her. And then someone needs to show me more of Maggie I did nothing to deserve the way people keep treating me Sawyer.
