sister maggy

when i said i wanted a supergirl musical episode i meant, a Supergirl. Musical. Episode. not a crossover with the flash where kara sings like twice. i want a karaoke episode, Kara and Winn singing duets and broadway musicals and then roping Alex into signing so she goes up and serenades Maggie and Maggie’s panties just dROP because ‘damn Danvers i knew you had some impressive lungs on you but not like this’ which ofc makes Alex blush 50 shades of red

and then James goes up and impresses tf outta everyone bc ‘oh my god james i didnt know you could sing!!’ 

j’onn softly croaks out some raspy martian song that has everyone in tears (he tells them later that it was a lullaby he sang many time to his daughters) and kara and alex sing together and lena and maggie are simply dying okay they’re so gay for the danvers sisters. 

maggie goes up and screams some rock anthem that she knows alex used to love and alex is so embarassed that maggie even knows that (eliza showed her the pictures of alex’s rebelious years and maggie thought it was adorable) 

lena and maggie then teaming up to sing some sappy love song to the danvers sisters and eliza thinks it just about the funniest thing ever, the way her daughters just melt

just, the supersquad having a good time and singing together


This is it. This is Kara’s absolute worst nightmare coming true. This is Kara Danvers and Supergirl—the mild mannered reporter and the last true Daughter of Krypton—stripped down to their barest selves, leaving in their stead Kara Zor-El: an orphan, a refugee, a scared child far from home. Staring at that tank for two seconds, seeing Alex’s body floating listlessly—lifelessly—is that little girl coming face-to-face with her greatest fear.

Alex, who Kara loves more than anyone in the universe—more than her last living blood relation in the galaxy, more than her boyfriend, more than anyone—has given up so much for Kara. Alex sacrificed everything, has gone above and beyond what should have been asked of a child when an alien invaded her home and was forced to call her “sister”. There is only one last thing that Alex could give to Kara and that is her life and in this moment, Kara sees that become a reality.

I can only imagine, as a being that has fire in her eyes and ice in her lungs, that she had never felt more powerless than she did in those two seconds.

Because Kara doesn’t just see Alex dying; she sees Krypton exploding all over again. She’s trying to remember the last time that she hugged Alex, just like when she is alone and staring at stars that are not her own, Kara tries to remember the last time she hugged her mother before the universe stole her away from her. Kara stares at Alex and all she sees is her world ending. All. Over. Again.

Those two seconds probably felt like a lifetime to Kara—like lying in the abyss of the Phantom Zone, the dark and cold of space pressing in on her, threatening to consume her.

I love and respect that this was an important Sanvers episode and of Kara and Maggie coming together in their love for Alex, but let’s not downplay the significance of this moment for Kara.
