Where is the Alex/Maggie Supergirl scoop you promised? — Brenda Right here. Though Alex and Maggie smooched in the winter finale, their blossoming relationship has a long way to go. “There’s definitely some bumps,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells me. “Just because they are together now doesn’t mean it’s going to go smoothly. Alex has never been in this kind of relationship before and she’s going to make some rookie mistakes that they’ll have to get past. Maggie has been presented as being the perfect guide for Alex’s journey this season, but Alex is going to learn that Maggie isn’t perfect, which is going to lead to some difficult situations coming down the road.”
kara totally didn’t tell alex where she was going right? because there is no way in hell that alexandra “i die, you die” danvers would let kara go to ANOTHER WHOLE EARTH by herself to meet a bunch of idiots who she doesn’t know to help them fight aliens.
so like, kara gets back to her apartment, and there’s alex, just fuming.
and kara knows that face, that face is bad so she immediately starts fidgeting with her glasses, and nervously chuckling, and stumbling over her words to try and explain. (”it was to help my friend!”, “it was a sort of time-is-of-the-essence-situation”, “you were sort of busy making out with maggie”, “which, YOU MADE OUT WITH MAGGIE! alex! that’s awesome! let’s talk about that”) but alex shuts that shit right down and before kara can make some sort of escape attempt, because there is no way that this is going to be a short lecture, the door opens and literally EVERYONE pours right on in. and kara panics and totally gets ready to fly out of the window but j’onn, mon-el (if we have to include this pasty fucking moron) and james all grab her and try to hold her in place.
(winn helps by clutching at kara’s legs, getting repeatedly and accidentally kicked in the face and glaring both at alex and kara the entire time.)
alex starts pacing and lecturing and it’s glorious. and it’s hilarious. and some of it is Very Personal and Not Really Stuff That EVERYONE Needs to Know Alexandra. and maggie is standing just behind alex fucking trying so hard not to burst out laughing. because what kind of nerd shit did she get herself into? (she loves it. and she’s very relieved to find out that supergirl isn’t in any way shape or form someone that she needs to be jealous of, but instead, alex’s baby sister. which, makes so many things make sense.) what makes less sense is why lena luthor is standing to her right as alex paces in front of them, arms crossed, lips pressed tightly together, worry and fear and anger in her eyes directed towards kara. but, now is clearly not the time to ask. plus, the look on lena’s face tells her more than lena herself probably would anyway.
and, this lecture goes on and on and on. alex never once loses a bit of steam, kara starts actually kinda trying to get out of here and mon-el takes an elbow to the face. and then, alex takes a deep breath and finally stops talking. kara sags with relief, but no one lets her go, in fact lena, alex, and maggie all turn towards kara’s apartment door expectantly. lena actually smirks at kara and it…. it cannot mean anything good.
and then the door opens, and cat grant struts inside, looking fabulous as always. “just what the hell have you been up to keira?”
kara gulps, all the boys hold her tighter, alex looks positively delighted, maggie rolls her eyes and takes a seat because this doesn’t seem like it’s going to come to an end anytime soon, and lena doesn’t take her eyes off kara even for a second.
cat flips her hair, places her hands onto her hips, and gives kara a lecture that clocks in an hour and forty-seven minutes longer than alex’s already incredibly long thirty-nine full minute one.
kara wistfully hopes that sara lance will show up with her spaceship and get her the hell out of here.
Imagine Maggie seeing Kara and Lena in the same room or even just hearing the way Kara talks about Lena, and later she says to Alex “I didn’t know your sister was into girls to.” Alex looks confused and says “she isn’t…” but Maggie just replies saying that the way she behaves around Lena can’t possibly be heterosexual and tells Alex she needs to tell her. This leads to Alex awkwardly trying to tell Kara that she’s bi af and in love with Lena while Kara is completely oblivious to her feelings.
