Supergirl’s Chyler Leigh and Floriana Lima: What it means to say ‘I love you’


After adding a kidnapping to a long list of dangerous situations Supergirl’s Alex Danvers has survived, it was time. Waking up next to her beloved she understood that it is now or never – the three words must be said. “Those firsts that you talked about? I want to have them all with you. I never wanna stop having firsts with you. I love you, Maggie Sawyer,” Alex says and immediately receives “I love you” in respond. The relationship between Alex, a secret government agent who was in the closet, and police detective Maggie Sawyer excited LGBT fans who demanded more LGBT diversity and awareness on screen. “I kept asking when this was going to happen,” Chyler Leigh, who plays Alex, told news site TVLine, “(Showrunner) Andrew (Kreisberg) was like, ‘Oh, we’ll see. We’ll see.’ And then of course this is how it happens. It’s a pretty big next step for them,” Leigh added. You have moments of ‘You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone,’ but at the same time, they hadn’t gotten this vulnerable with each other quite yet.” Her on-screen beloved Lima hinted previously on some cute, lovely, sweet and extremely special moment in relationships of Maggie and Alex – so here we go. Calling back to episode eight, which aired in November, Leigh said the couple’s first kiss was a “moment of, like, life is too short, and you just really don’t know. That’s one thing that I always kind of laugh at with the show – because you literally could die at any moment, at any moment – but there really is no time for BS. You’ve just got to live.”
