Fans of the show are hailing Alex Danvers' realisation about her sexuality as one of the best moments in television history.
CW's American hit 'Supergirl' has been running for two seasons now, premiering back in October 2015. The show has a cult online following, pretty decent ratings and all the tropes of a superhero story but last nights episode 'Crossfire' took it to a whole new level.
In a touching scene between characters NCPD detective Maggie and Alex, the latter finally comes to terms with her true feelings and lays it all out to her long-term crush (prepare for things to get real).
Producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly, "There was always this sadness about Alex last season that I think we're really getting underneath now."
"No one should ever feel like they're trapped. No one should ever feel like they've got a secret inside of them. The idea that, in going through this, even if it is painful and rough going, that Alex is going to come out the other side a happier and more complete person, as someone who loves Alex Danvers so dearly like a sister, that she is going to go on this incredible journey makes me so happy."
Fans have equally shown their love for the accuracy of the real struggles of coming out the scene was able to portray.
