What's your favorite moment from Supergirl's season 2 so far ?
Alex’s coming out speech to Maggie at the bar. I’ve always had a love for this show ever since it premiered, but this scene brought it to the obsession levels you see from me today.
I love a lot of the story elements this season - Superman, Cadmus, the Luthors, alien amnesty, the Martians, Kara making punching bags out of blocks of concrete, etc. - but let’s be real. Alex’s journey is probably the crown jewel of Supergirl season 2.
The timing and context have personal significance to me. I came out at almost the exact same time that season 2 started airing. I had no idea this storyline was going to happen, let alone with my favorite character on the show.
The relationship with Maggie was teased for a few episodes, but the scene at the bar was the first real indication of just how well written and well acted this story was going to be done, and how seriously it was going to be treated on the show. It blew my mind. Most people reference the following episode where Alex formally came out, but this is the moment that will always stick out to me. As someone a little bit older who is just coming out, and who has spent much of her life taking care of her sisters and putting a little too much energy into trying to be perfect, this speech hit very close to home.
Wow, that turned out to be a way more loaded question than I expected.
