Supergirl Photos: For Alex and Maggie, Does an Ex Mark an Awkward Spot?

Three appears to be company in this batch of photos from Monday’s Supergirl, in which Alex and Maggie bump into the latter’s former flame.

In the the episode “Distant Sun,” Floriana Lima shared during our recent set visit, “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.

“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!’” the actress said with a laugh.

How will things unfold when the trio agree to “do dinner”? The photo gallery doesn’t reveal that much, but there are also pics of Teri Hatcher’s Queen Rhea confronting son Mon-El and his Kryptonian girlfriend, Kara.

    super excited for this!

  2. LK says:

    This is the Alex & Maggie episode for all those people who have been complaining they dont get enough screen time.

    • Anon says:

      Don’t be fooled, my friend. The Alex/Maggie stuff is minimal and this episode is more about Mon-el/Daxam. I’m not even complaining tbh, I love all the characters on this show. But yeah, it’ll be good to get slightly more Sanvers stuff in this episode!

      • LK says:

        Nope… Kara and Mon were off shooting the Flash episode while this episode was being shot.. so their involvement in this episode will be minimal.

        • Anon says:

          That was for 16. They finished filming for the crossover a few days into filming for 17 (got the Sanvers stuff done in 2 or 3 days while crossover stuff was finishing). After that Melissa and Chris were on set way more/the rest of the shooting weeks. Gonna be lots of Daxam/Monel again in this one.

        • immanu says:

          Kara and Mon-El have the A plot of the episode. There won’t be much of Sanvers. Just more of the same. The Maggie heavy episode is ep 19.

    • Adanna says:

      The Sanvers episode is Episode 19. This is a Kara/Mon-El episode.

    • Isa says:

      I wish…
      No it’s gonna be another Kara/Mon-El episode *yawn*
      The Alex/Maggie storyline is gonna be short.

      • Jeni G. says:

        Actually, Alex/Maggie was turning into a big *yawn* lately, let’s hope the ex can spice things up a bit in the next ep.

  3. immanu says:

    Alex looks like she’s going to crush that poor woman’s hand.

  4. Sara says:

    They’re one of the few DCTV ships I actually love haha. Tied with Barry/Iris! This ep looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, can’t wait to know more about Maggie.

  5. Doc says:

    Good to see the fortress of solitude back.
    Maggie’s ex kind of looks like Alex, doesn’t she? This is going to be interesting.

  6. Anon says:

    Would’ve been a cool/subtle Batwoman reference if Maggie’s ex was suspiciously named Kate. :P

  7. Erik says:

    Would love if her ex is named Kate.

  8. Mer says:

    Saw the ex and first thing I thought was that maybe her name is Kate! (Then read the article and it’s not) Then I looked at Alex and realized that it’s actually Alex that looks A LOT like Kate Kane. What a coincidence lol. Maggie seems to have a type?

  9. Cato says:

    Mon El’s girlfriend Kara? You mean Supergirl, the former lead of the show? C’mon man

    • LK says:

      She’s still the lead of the show.

      • Monty says:

        The lead of a show usually has her own storyline so you can see how that mistake could happen.

        • Jeni G. says:

          Hon, get over it…Karamel is canon and Melwood is real, so take a Valium and spare us your incessant whining.

          • Maria says:

            Who cares about Melwood? You Karameh shippers are insane.

          • Olivia says:

            @Maria Kids and socially inept people who find a self-insert in the characters (and their actors as well, it seems)? They don’t care about Kara as an individual or about Supergirl as a superhero, their only interest is Mongrel and the ship they get out of it. The woman is only a prop to whatever eye-candy douche she’s with; quality, continuity and respect be damned.
            @Jeni G: yeah, about that… IRL shipping is creepy af, you probably need to take something yourself.

        • Rainie says:

          Look at this pathetic, hateful person calling him Mongrel. Get a grip.

  10. MNM says:

    Hahahah! The grip Alex has on the ex’s hand though. Amazing. This encounter looks like it’s gonna be fun.

  11. Monty says:

    I will look forward to the 4 minutes of screen time they will have between the Kara babysitting Mon El scenes.

  12. Jello says:

    Mon-el ‘s girlfriend Whatsherface is right.

  13. T.W.S.S. says:

    I hope this isn’t simply a reverse of the typical Maggie/Alex dynamic, where one person (Alex) hides her feelings and the other (Maggie) has to spend the entire episode figuring out what the true feelings are.

  14. Gift says:

    Of cause no one will complain now

  15. Phun says:

    Nice Promo pics. Looks like the fortress of solitude. Cannot wait.

  16. Butch says:

    Seems like they are planning for Mon-El to go back to Daxam by the end of the season to establish a more democratic world and thus prove himself a hero. Unfortunately it probably means he is off the show.

    • Brian says:

      We should be so lucky.

    • Tara says:

      His Mom is a villain so there’s probably a twist with Daxam. It might not be habitable and his mom might actually be planning to invade some other land and establish a new Daxam. I doubt it’s as simple as it looks.

      • Jeni G. says:

        If they follow the comics there will be an invasion of earth by the Dominators and other alien races (including Daxamites), but the Daxamites will rebel…and empowered by the effects of the yellow sun and led by Mon-El will repel the invasion altoghter.

  17. walter says:

    Nice try. This episode is another Mon-El centric one so don’t use Sanvers to make people think this ep is about them.

  18. Isabel says:

    Alex is almost breaking that poor woman’s fingers lol
    Can’t wait for the 3min of Sanvers storyline. As for the rest…. yawn
