Procure prepared for a heavy dose of Danvers within the course of Monday’s episode of Supergirl.
Within the wake of the Sanvers breakup, Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Kara (Melissa Benoist) head house to Midvale for an episode that delves deeper into the Danvers sisters’ relationship. By flashbacks that characteristic a young Kara (Isabel Vidovic) and a young Alex (Olivia Nikkanen), viewers will label how the anxious trip of losing a childhood pal for sure introduced the sisters together.
“What’s for sure fun is you’ll get to examine, by the capacity they have interaction, more about how their relationship started when Kara first came to Earth, how it grew, how it grew to alter into so shut, and why they’re so shut this day,” Benoist tells EW.
Leigh likens the flashbacks to a Scooby-Doo-form homicide mystery that can present a host of solutions about how the two sisters had been ready to cement their relationship. “It’s this mystery that has to be solved, in most cases, and they also must work together, and so you for sure dwell get an even bigger sense of seeing what that looked appreciate and how they needed to choose things out and rapid,” Leigh says. “We handiest got bits and items of that that we’ve seen in flashbacks within the previous seasons, so this is one [episode] that’s for sure chilly. I ponder the tone is going to be for sure various.”
On the flip side, Leigh says the recent-day myth line is more Thelma and Louise. “I’ll honest pronounce we snag a for sure sweet stride,” she says. “It became a host of fun. We got to force spherical in this for sure sweet automobile and honest cruise, which became gigantic. We had been out within the starting up fields on a Vancouver day and we honest got to hang around and appreciate time. I will’t wait to examine it.”
The level of the accelerate back and forth house is so that Alex can retract her thoughts off her most modern breakup with Maggie (Floriana Lima), however the sisters now not sleep relying on each various as both are for sure struggling heartbreak — Mon-El (Chris Wood) became forced to transfer away Earth within the season 2 finale, successfully ending his relationship with Kara. “Kara and Alex can both lean on each various,” Leigh says. Benoist consents: “Alex and Kara consistently prepare to secure each various when they most need each various. Their sisterhood is so significant.”
The myth line is section and parcel of the visual display unit trying to return to the sister dynamic that drove mighty of potentially the most important season, however became much less prevalent in season 2. “I will’t expose you the intention in which chuffed I’m about that,” Leigh says. “I’m so grateful for all the Sanvers stuff, I’d now not ever now not be supportive of that and honest so grateful of that shuffle. But there’s a piece of it that became for sure appreciate, ‘I miss working with Melissa!’ In season 2, it’s nearly appreciate of us form of got sectioned off — it became appreciate Kara and Mon-El, Hank and M’gann, after which it’s me and Maggie, after which it’s Winn and James.”
“Maybe the two of them got so fascinated by their romances final season,” Benoist adds, “which became splendid and we must gape that as of us ourselves, however this season you’ll label them both make stronger each various in loss. It’s handiest fitting that Kara runs into the fray for Alex because that’s what they dwell for every various. She honest went by the same and Alex became there for her. Genuinely, these were my current scenes to shoot thus a long way this season honest because Chyler and I appreciate a for sure particular relationship and we care about each various a lot. That roughly bleeds into the scenes.”
Leigh consents, taking each probability she will be able to get to rave about her on-screen sibling. “I honest fully love their relationship,” Leigh says. “I pronounce it the total time, and of us are potentially appreciate, ‘Yeah, shapely,’ however I love Melissa so mighty. So the both of us are for sure mad to listen to that it became going to be an even bigger focus this season. I for sure feel appreciate it brings more of that grounding and that heartbeat of the visual display unit support reasonably.”
