Supergirl Melissa Benoist

This season of Supergirl introduced Alex Danvers to Maggie Sawyer and the blossoming romance between the two character’s has been one of the most acclaimed stories of the season two. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, actress Chyler Leigh teased a big episode for Alex and Maggie that will find the couple in an urgent situation

Leigh revealed that Alex will find herself in a situation where she must be rescued.

“Episode 19 is a very big episode for the both of them just because it comes to dire circumstances, where it’s a situation of a rescue.”

Leigh explained how the situation will bring Alex and Kara together, but that the two character’s may have a difference of opinion on how to rescue Alex.

“It causes Kara and Maggie to have to rely on each other to figure out what happened to Alex… You have to see how they work together, and you have to see how they’re both fighting for the person that they love, that they care about, and how that can take a toll if you have differing opinions, different ways that you kill aliens. It’s this really great example of how deep all of the relationships are, but it really does put Maggie and Alex to the test in a very great way, but it’s rather dire.”

Supergirl returns on April 24 with the episode titled “Ace Reporter”.
