You know what. I hate when comics make Kara a reporter. there's no reason for it besides that's what clark does. Pre crisis kara loved acting, post crisis kara loved art! let her have her own interests and careers!!!
Saw this post by @cletusthurstonbeauregard a few days ago, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. It’s right after Lena told Kara that iconic line, “Supergirl may have saved me, but you, Kara Danvers, are my hero.”
With deep, mysterious music quavering over the scene, Lena gazes at a chess piece, a white knight, before placing it next to the black queen, which is not the same spot she picked it up from. She deliberately put those two pieces together.
At first I thought Kara was the white knight and Lena the black queen. But in the flashback scene that intersperses with this one, we see young Lena playing chess with Lex. “Check,” he says, with a move of his black queen. Lena counters by taking the queen with her white knight and calls, “Checkmate.” 🧐💡😮
🙀 GASP! It’s Lena who is the white knight! 🤯 She is the hero of her own story!
She’s smart. She’s cunning. She’s not just a pawn in her family’s game as we’ve been led to believe so far. She's capable of thinking ahead, backing her opponents into a corner, and forcing them to play into her hand.
I’M SCREAMING! THE SYMBOLISM! PEAK STORYTELLING!
Such delicious foreshadowing that Lena will “fall into the light.” But of course, it can’t be too obvious - we need the drama after all - and we leave the scene with a shot of Lena, her face shrouded with a dark look.
A show that is called Supergirl, that boasted for empowered female characters, an empowered female heroine, practically gives the message that everything will be fine as long as male heroes come to save the women... Nyxly is given Lex .... to Kara Denvers they give Will (what a forced character that's why he is not accepted by the majority) to the Superfriends and to Supergirl now for the grand finale will appear the men of the Legion ... I mean ... this seems like a joke ... in batwoman is the same? Because in the super hero series where the main character is male they give him his great female love and make real the phrase "behind a great man, there is a great woman" all the time! and they achieve EVERYTHING! both as a hero and as a human or normal life. Only in Legends of Tomorrow do I see that there is a real balance between characters of different sexes giving them equal attention.
It is very sad to see how in Supergirl they despise the heroine so much all because she is a woman, all because the writers and showrunners created a queerbaiting with Lena making her character the ALL of Kara, of simply Kara, its not me saying it, they have shown it all the time from S2 until now by the same writers doing their baiting. So it's obvious that in the end Kara will be left with an empty ending. There are only 4 chapters left, the next one we know will be dedicated to Lex's return and falling in love with Nyxly and Dansen's marriage proposal, after that they will focus on the final battle, there is no time, the ending will be rushed, not even with a Korrasami ending will Kara's closure be good. I'm not speaking as a blind shipper, I'm speaking as someone who writes scripts and is involved in that world, who knows how to build characters.
Kara going to the future is an escape from her unresolved conflicts.
Kara ending up with Mon-El would be romanticizing toxic relationships.
Kara not getting to be just Kara and staying as Supergirl or staying as Kara and not Supergirl is unfair to her character.
For Kara to remain single while everyone else is paired up and raising a family is devastating and again, unfair to her character since in S1 she says she wants to have a love where it can be just her, her perfect late night playmate and in this season she says it clearly "I don't want to be alone anymore".
That Kara dies ... I don't even have to say it would be that, right? it would be almost a Lexa without being Lexa, do you know what I mean?
That Kara gets everything all at once in the end is another narrative problem. There is no doubt that this series needs one more season to develop properly, they wasted a lot of time doing unnecessary things in season 5 and 6A, that's why now everything feels so abrupt and leaves you with the "WTF" in your mouth.
But the REAL PROBLEM is that they screwed themselves by creating queerbaiting with Lena. They focused so much on continuing to keep that audience that they know that with the slightest glance or gesture between them they will continue to eat at the bait. They focused so much on that that they created the solution and what Kara wants and needs. They created for Kara, for Supergirl, for Kara Zor-El her Lois Lane, her Iris, her Felicity.
They created it but they didn't develop it the way it deserved to be and they just stayed at that.
So if in the end Supercorp will be canon it will be bittersweet and empty.
And if it is not canon it will confirm what we already know, the biggest queerbaiting in the history of television and again another Lexa but this time called Lena and we continue without learning from the past and we continue to fall, or as we jokingly say, clowns forever and they continue to laugh at those clowns because they get what they want and they are used to work like that.
Supergirl, the actors and especially Mel and Katie deserve better!
Inktober Day 22: Open
How do you describe them opening about their feelings toward each other? Well, that's a good question between Lena and Kara. At that time, their friendship blossom and they felt close. Then, as they get close, imagine if Lena would open her feelings about being in love in Kara and expressing it through her magic. Maybe they found the right person for each other to open love and find themselves in love
who thinks Kara quitting Catco is the biggest sign she's actually going to give up being Supergirl at the end? Like to me, she's going to quit, hate not being able to be a human/journalist, realize her mistake and then see her friends can take up the mantle of saving the city??? Like going to Argo or not, I don't think she's going to continue being supergirl.
Also like there are other signs are point to this like IMO her courage gauntlet is almost certainly that she shouldn't have saved the plane and come out as supergirl.
