The following is a report from Entertainment Weekly. We are all worried about Alex and Maggie’s relationship now that Floriana is no longer a regular for Season 3. What does this mean for the relationship that Season 2 spent so much time building up?
Well Greg Berlanti spoke about their future at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday. Asked if Floriana’s schedule meant that the change will have a huge impact (how could it not?).
“I don’t think so. If any character people love is not there as much as they want them there, they’re going to be upset that they’re not. For my perspective, I’d say we will use her as much as we can.”
So what exactly does that mean? Does it mean Alex and Maggie are splitting up?
“I don’t want to say too much about the story aspects of it, but we got into it wanting to tell the story of Alex because she was a lead on the show and no matter what, we want to continue exploring Alex’s romantic life. We get to do it in as much as actors want to come play and work with us as much as we can. It’s obviously been a really successful element of the show. We love telling the stories.”
Well that’s a good sign, right? They want to explore Alex’s romantic life – seriously you can’t have both sisters being depressed over lost loves now…Kara is already feeling miserable over the loss of Mon-El and what she had to do to save his life.
Addressing Floriana’s other commitments, Greg said:
“It’s so hard in this business to get everybody swimming in the same direction. We’re very blessed with that story line and actors involved with it, and the audience enjoyment of it. You never want to see those things go away, so we’ll see what happens.”
“I think [Floriana is] wonderful on the show, and she’s got some real ardent fans, and she should,” he said. “Of course we wanted more of her, but she’s got other things in the hopper and other things she wants to consider. We’d love to have her back as much as possible.”
So there you have it. That’s not telling us anything other than the relationship is important (well yes). We wait and see what happens to the dynamic Alex and Maggie lovebirds.
