SG Writers Room:
Okay, so we're agreed that we're writing off Sanvers for no valid reason whatsoever and want to somehow focus on Mon El more even though he won't be there, but the LGBT backlash is going to be big, so what can do to queerbait them and keep them around instead?
Katie, bursting through the ceiling:
How about you not queerbait like decent human beings and let Lena love a woman?
For the last time Katie, we're not making Supercorp happen! I thought the song we wrote and paid Jeremy to sing at SDCC made that quite clear.
...I wasn't talking about Supercorp, asshats. Let Lena get together with Reign.
*laughs* Well, I must say...that's a nice change of pace from the Supercorp ringer you've putting us through, but you can't just volunteer Odet-
Odette, bursting through the door:
WOULD YOU LET HER FINISH?!?!
Like a lot of people, I’m kind of for Reigncorp at the moment. I reserve the right to change my mind because we don’t know how Reign will be written or how healthy that relationship would be. If it does in fact rise, I have a sneaking suspicion it’ll hit all the “classic” wlw television tropes along the way:
-Being the only wlw couple on the show (The Powers That Be will have written off Sanvers by then ☹️)
-Not enough screentime so the show can focus on the forced, horribly written and received main straight pairing (Karamel, even though that’s not endgame)
-Catastrophe happening after the first time they have sex (Lena being collateral damage and getting paralyzed in a Reign-Supergirl fight that will be entirely Kara’s fault)
-Ending with one of them dying (Reign in the Season 3 finale…if not 1-2 episodes prior so that Lena turns full darkside for the finale and is in full villain swing next season)
-One of them dies from a bullet (Alex shooting evil Lena to save Kara, but that’s Season 4)
Not really how I’d like things to shake out but they’re called tropes for a reason. I’m just calling it now.
Here’s me hoping Reign rescues Lena from whatever attack happens in the 1st episode. Like saves her then runs away so Lena doesn’t know who it was but also revealing there’s someone else with powers in National City
To be clear I am still going to support the show because, quite frankly, I like it and it’s Katie’s job so I’m still going to watch it legally (if I can because fuck you New Zealand why do we have to be so far behind) and encourage everyone else to do the same
