Day to celebrate! Supergirl returns today and it’s also my birthday. I’m personally super excited for this episode. Here’s a new preview on tonight’s episode published by TVLine. Director Kevin Smith talks about Maggie and Alex relationship:
Of course, Kara wasn’t the only Danvers sister whose love life Smith couldn’t wait to explore. In many ways, he says, “Alex is the heart and soul of this show.”
“The Alex and Maggie relationship starts turning into something really beautiful,” he teases. “We got to do a couple of scenes with them, early in the relationship, where they start to figure out who they are as a couple.”
Another highlight for Smith was getting to film at the DEO with J’onn J’onzz, “one of [his] favorite characters in the DC pantheon,” as the gang discusses how to rescue Supergirl and Mon-El from Roulette’s clutches on Slaver’s Moon.
“Hank turns to Alex, and in that perfect intonation — deep and rolling — he says that Slaver’s Moon has a red sun,” Smith recalls. “Me and Eric [Carrasco], who wrote the episode, our nipples got hard. We lost our fluids.”
Also here chatted a little bit with Comic Book Resource:
Chyler [Leigh], as Alex, got to engage with Floriana [Lima], who plays Maggie. They had a really emotional scene that would be as at home in any drama as it was in this episode. I was programmed for those scenes insanely well. Those scenes were the sweet spot for me.
And for IGN: “There’s a really tender scene between Chyler and Floriana [Lima]”
“I love Chyler Leigh. I think she’s amazing. I think she’s a fantastic actress, as is Melissa [Benoist],” he said. “But what they’re doing with Chyler’s character this year and hooking her up with Maggie Sawyer is not just great storytelling, but important storytelling for a bunch of people out there who see themselves reflected in that relationship. We’ve seen it online – there have been a bunch of stories generated by people who are like, ‘This means something.’ So we have a few scenes with those characters where we get to play with that, particularly because it’s early in their relationship. There’s a really tender scene between Chyler and Floriana [Lima]. I didn’t act in it; they did all the acting. I just put cameras on it. But I feel it’s a really strong piece of that arc going forward – the building of a real relationship between those characters. So I was proud and happy about that.”
