In its newest episode, and the last until the new year, Supergirl
blew-up what we all expected to be a season (or more)-long slowburn
romance between Alex Danvers and Maggie Sawyer, instead sending the good
ship “Sanvers” sailing on its merry way.
It seems odd then, for this piece to question the “courage” of a show that gave such a close and personal view of Alex coming to understand her sexuality.
However, the relationship in question is not between Supergirl’s
adoptive sister and a cop. No, it’s between Supergirl herself, the
show’s protagonist, and Lena Luthor.
