I'm seeing a lot of people upset about tonight's SG episode. Care to share the deets 👀
I have so much to say about Supergirl and it may take a while…
Ok, several points. It’s the Valentine’s Day episode so everyone has or finds love, right? Except J’onn only gets to send M’gann a telepathic message offscreen and James is nowhere to be found. Not even a mention or thought is spared him. How weird that the only non-white characters on the show are celebrating their love offscreen or just offscreen period.
Moving on, Maggie/Alex were very cute but they only had four scenes. Hilarious considering the episode was first promoted as a Sanvers Episode, which it was not. But yay for them being together and Maggie opening up more. I wish they treated their characters of color half as well as they do her, but that’s ok.
Winn got a cute alien romance and they even tried to do the whole “dating will be difficult for us because the world will look at us differently!” Which I’m totally here for except… It’s still a white man and a white woman, even if she’s an alien. And thinking about how this white lady (albeit one with alien features on her face) is being mistreated by the world of SG just reminded me how … DUN DUN DUN … the real-llfe non-white actors are being mistreated by Supergirl the show. Do you see my dilemma?
FINALLY! Mr. Mxyzptlk represents every lady’s worst nightmare, right? He IS the Nice Guy who just won’t leave you alone, poor Kara! Except, surprise! She already has that dude, and his name is Mon-El. Mon-El, who spends the whole episode talking over Kara and trying to fight her battles and saying things like “Things were much easier on Daxam when I objectified women and didn’t care about anyone” without a hint of irony. Anyway, that dude and Kara make out at the end of the ep to “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” after my darling girl has vanquished the villain, and I pray for death to come quickly.
