The past season of Supergirl has been especially difficult for Alex Danvers, who has had a understandably difficult time following the betrayal and subsequent recapturing of her father Jeremiah. However, one the bright spots of her tumultuous adventures this season has been her introduction to detective Maggie Sawyer and the relationship that has developed between them. In an interview with TVLine, actress Floriana Lima stated that fans will learn more about Maggie’s past and teased how the new couple will find themselves in an an awkward situation.
Lima revealed that viewers will learn more about Maggie’s history.
“We’re definitely going to learn a bit more about Maggie and how she came out of that whole ‘coming out’ [experience].”
Lima teased that an upcoming episode will find Maggie in a “shocking” situation.
“An ex-girlfriend (played by Cedar Cove‘s Hayley Sales) shows up, and it’s a shocking moment for Maggie to run into her — while Alex is with her.”
Lima recounted how she herself is familiar with the awkward situation.
“We are just walking outside of yoga class, and it was one of those moments where I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ve done that, run into an ex with a new partner!’”
