Things Kriesberg Says...
Here’s just some quotes from Supergirl’s Executive Producer to mull over as the Sanvers break-up looms!!
- Thought it’s funny to ‘start the Alex/Sara shippers going’ in 2016′s crossover by teasing the two as a potential ship, showing a complete disregard for the character of Maggie…who’s at all surprised that, one year later, Alex and Sara are actually going to get together as some cheap hook-up, ever so conveniently happening during sweeps?
- Said in December 2016, whilst knowing full well that Floriana Lima was only contracted for one season: “I don’t think people need to worry that suddenly this relationship is going to go by the wayside. It’s going to have it’s ups and downs, but we’re committed to Alex and Maggie — we’re as committed to Alex and Maggie as the audience is.”
- Talked about writing Maggie ‘out as a regular’…as opposed to writing her out altogether with this upcoming break-up but, kindly offering us some comfort that she doesn’t die..
- Described Maggie’s homophobic father who kicked his 14 year old daughter out because she was gay as ‘not always the most sympathetic figure’
Feel free to add!! And I’m not even getting started on some of the other shit that the execs of this show have said about Maggie/Sanvers…
