The “Supergirl” Valentine’s episode looks SUPER romantic for one couple
Love or hate the holiday, Valentine’s Day is bringing romance to the lives of two of your favorite television characters on the CW’s Supergirl — and we are beyond ready for it.
The new-ish relationship between Alex and Maggie on Supergirl is going to be the focus of the V-Day episode, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Here’s the scoop: Alex (Chyler Leigh) is pumped to spend her first Valentine’s Day in a relationship, but Maggie (Floriana Lima) doesn’t really care for the holiday. (Who among us hasn’t lived through this spat at least once IRL??) Unsurprisingly, a lovers’ quarrel brews, but in the end, Maggie more than makes up for it (EW’s exclusive photo shows a corsage on Alex’s arm).
In case you need a recap, this romance has been blossoming for a while. Maggie realized she had feelings for Alex after a near-death experience (with a big smooch in the winter finale, natch). In turn, this led to the Danvers sister coming out to their mom, Eliza.
“The chemistry between Chyler and Floriana, if you could bottle and sell that, you could rule the world, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told EW in November. “They so deserve to be together, but like any great couple, they had to get past their own stuff to finally get there.
We’re so glad they did, because these two are *amazing* together. Truly #RelationshipGoals for the rest of us.
But what about hearts and flowers for Supergirl herself? What else is happening on V Day in National City? Well, a magical dude named Mr. Mxyzptlk bounces down to Earth proclaim undying love for Supergirl, and when she’s v. not into it, he decides to destroy the city. Ugh, dudes. We bet he thinks he’s a “nice guy.”
Looks like there’s love and disaster in the air, everywhere you look. So, ordinary Valentine’s Day, then.
Catch the special episode on February 20th on The CW, at 8 PM EST.
