The problem is not that James is irrelevant. The problem is that his plot and characterization have been actively terrible. The solution is not to force more of him into the story, that just means more terrible. The solution is to either, radically revamp him so his character isn't an utter waste of space, or else get rid of him so he stops wasting space. I strongly lean to the latter, because s2 has done a pretty dang good job of making him toxic.

Not to mention the whole, 'Oh, James is still here..?' Effect.

If you don't see him for an EP or two, you don't miss him...

What I want to see is more Alex and more Lena.

Alex and Lena together would be AWESOME!!!

Alex as a superhero would be fantastic.

Alex with her own nemesis would be way cool.

Alex, being important for something other than being Kara's sister, even better.

I will actually be disappointed if Lena doesn't end up evil, by the end of the show. Lex was one of my favorite characters on Smallville, and I want Kara and Lena to have a similar storyline and projectory.

But, really, any excuse for Lena to be on screen is good enough for me.

Alex is hotness personified and Lena is so elegantly beautiful. Plus, they are both uber smart, and badass.

More Danvers sister time would be sweet.

Alex and Jeremiah teaming up on a secret mission would be super fun.

Don't bury Maggie!!!

Maggie is great and has a lot of potential. Give her superpowers and let her join the DEO. Or give her, her own regular cop spinoff show. Have her walk accidentally through a portal into an earth without aliens, and have alternate Alex be assigned to be her regular cop partner. Then have aliens land, and since there is no supergirl on this earth, let Sanvers work to capture them.

Evil Alex would also be totes-tastic.

Evil Alex and Lena, even more totes-tastic.

Sooooo, I'm thinking you want more Alex all the way around....lol

By virtue of Katie now a regular, you will get more Lena for sure, not sure about evil...you might get some differing opinions around here....but you will definitely get more Lena.

Maggie, not sure how much we will get of her......hopefully they will all of the sudden have a deal signed with her and we will get her back as a regular.

I'm all for more Chyler Danvers, but not at the expense of Kara, and not with too much focus on relationships and relationship angst.

*teehee* Yes, I love Alex. She's my favorite.

I do think Lena will turn evil eventually. But not as long as Lillian is around. Lillian plays the evil mother just like Lionel, was the true evil one in smallville. But Lena will suffer enough tragedies over the following seasons that eventually she will recognize her true destiny.

Or at least that's how I would write it, if I was the showrunner.

ETA: Thanks for the welcome

Well I personally hope Lena bucks that particular expectation. I have zero desire to see a retread of Smallville here.

EDIT: Also, welcome HD!

Yeah, I don't want to see that either. That will be boring. We don't need to see just a repeat of Smallville with different actors, otherwise it just becomes like a different production of a play.

Welcome too!

I'm guessing your username doesn't refer to Kara but Chyler?

Welcome HD!!

I like that Lena looks to be bucking the Luthor-trend of being evil. I actually wish she wasn't adopted, as that would make her turn away from the family 'business' even more impactful.

She'll flirt with it a time or two and we the audience will be subjected to 'will she, won't she' plots. They've already started with her mother teasing that Lena will be 'mad' that Supergirl has been lying to her about her identity, but I don't think it'll happen.

I hope it doesn't happen...

I too wish she was Lillian's biological daughter, just because I think she and Brenda Strong are perfectly cast as mother and daughter and it's kind of a waste that they're not meant to be blood-related, lol.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
But Lena is a Luthor though. She and Lex have the same dad through an affair. The adoption was just to hide that the dad cheated, I guess. Did you see the eppy where Lillian was pretending to be nice to Lena because she needed a true Luthor to open a lock in Lex's vault?


I enjoy evil characters. But I won't be devastated if they give everyone else what they want and keep her good.

As a long time TV show fan, I'm used to not getting what I want.

Also, to me, Alex is the only hot Danvers.

Kara is very cute, adorable, sweet. But she just looks so young to me. Like a child. I can't see her as old enough to be hot. She is incredibly cute though.

In my head, Alex and Lena are women, and Kara is a kid.

But that's just me. I've never heard anyone else say they think that. (shakes head)

I wouldn't say Kara looks so young. She certainly doesn't look like a teenager. She looks like a woman in her 20s. Her sister Chyler just looks more mature. Kara is certainly hot though. She's just perhaps less sultry and more girl next door. But I wouldn't even say Chyler is sultry whereas Lena I would describe that way. It's her personality too.

Most people in their early twenties look like kids to me.

I dunno why. Just how my brain processes age related things.

Maybe because high schoolers on TV are almost always played by actors in their twenties. Perhaps that has skewed my perceptions.

But Melissa isn't in her early 20s. She's 28 and going to be 29 in just 3 months. She's nearer to 30.

Some people just have those genes...I'm lucky that that gene runs in my family.

The look is what matters, not the number.

No way! She looks 21 or younger, to my eyes. Really hard to believe she's almost 30. At least, I feel less creepy about the Lena/Kara shipping now though. Just because she looks like a high school student doing her teacher, doesn't mean she isn't legal and old enough for that type of relationship. But damn, she looks soooo young.

She looks young but she doesn't look younger than 21 to me.

Chyler Leigh is 35 but her character Chyler Danvers doesn't look that age. She still looks like she's in her late 20s.

The magic of makeup and camera work. Calista Flockhart and Teri Hatcher didn't look 52.

Yeah they did....and there is nothing wrong with that....their characters were supposed to be that age, they are that age, and they looked the part.
