just think about it. there would be no Supergirl without Alex Danvers. Kara may have learned love from her parents on Krypton, but she learned about a whole new type of love on Earth. From Alex. That’s why Kara always sees the good in people. She learned it from her sister. Her sister, who didn’t want her in the first place, who suddenly had a freak kid to look after, who treated her poorly. But the thing is, Alex changed. Alex went from mildly tolerating Kara to being the person Kara loves most and who loves Kara the most. Alex Danvers’ entire life went from revolving around her new alien sister and keeping her at arm’s length, to protecting her with her entire life and more.
Everything Alex has ever done was for Kara. To protect her. To keep her little sister safe. To make sure that Kara never felt unloved or unwanted. And that’s why Kara risked everything, everything, to save Alex and exposed herself. Can you imagine that type of love? To risk your entire life, a safe and quiet life that everyone around you has very carefully worked for and sacrificed for, for one person? And to build up from that courage, use that love to help others, to see the good in others, even if they are aliens, or criminals, or Luthors.
The CW keeps shitting on this, forgetting that the Danvers’ sister are the heart of the show. That the reason this show technically ‘exists’ is because Kara risked herself to save her sister. And I’m so incredibly upset, that after such an emotional episode Kara and Alex did not get a chance to have a moment. Not a real one anyways. Kara should have had an equal emotional moment with Alex. Because Alex is her hero and losing her would have undoubtedly ruined Kara. She was wrecked just from the time. But afterwards? A quick hug and that’s it? Unrealistic.
