Okay here are my two cents on the Floriana Lima thing, that literally no one asked for.
Season 2 was a season of changes. Where everything we thought this show had established was up for grabs. This was in regards to literally every aspect of the show, even the cinematography, and what I am hoping Season 3 will bring is more stability and hopefully in depth story telling (one can hope right). But regarding Floriana no longer being a regular and a possible end to #Sanvers, one does not exclude the other.
Yes, maybe it will happen and I’m sure many people will be sad, which I fully understand! This was an amazing and important storyline. Yet if you look at it a bit more realistically (and more challenging writing wise?), Alex has just come out. Maggie said so herself, she is Alex’s first real lady love. Coming out is about so much more than just finding love, it’s about self discovery as well and I’ve been sorely missing that in Alex’s storyline this season (I keep thinking about why Titus broke up with Mikey on Kimmy Schmidt). And just to be clear, she is my number 1 priority in this show (well number 2, next to my baby Kara). Alex Danvers has had a complicated life and she, and we as viewers, deserve to see her explore that further. Exploring her relationship with her sister even more, her search and pain regarding her father, her job at the DEO and yes, her sexuality! Which includes her love life, but so much more than that, my god, so much more! Maybe Maggie is the love of her life, if so, good for Alex! For finding it on her first try, and that can lead to other amazing storylines, but if Maggie isn’t… well that’s okay too and my god does that open doors for her storyline (again, not saying Alex being in a relationship/being married limits her storyline, it just moves her past a point I’d like to see explored further).
Okay this is becoming long. I just see people freaking out and trying to lay blame, but pretty please. Keep demanding better writing storylines for these characters love. ALL of them. Alex, James, J’onn, Winn, Lena. Sure their love lives can be part of that, but S2 was a show about ships, it wasn’t character driven and it broke my heart. Let’s keep advocating and demanding a higher standard! So that the episodes that Floriana WILL be in next season, give us amazing dialogue, acting and screen time (not a rushed, only half minute screentime, marriage proposal).
I’ll stop now. Long live my Sunshine Show!
