It’s heartbreak after heartbreak on Supergirl. The Danvers sisters can’t seem to catch a romantic break. First, Kara (Melissa Benoist) gives up her love, Mon-El, and now Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie (Floriana Lima) come to a devastating decision regarding their future together in “Damage.”
BuddyTV was on the Supergirl set to talk to Chyler Leigh about the soul crushing breakup of the seemingly perfect couple, Sanvers. Ulitmately, Alex’s desire and need to have kids and Maggie’s vision of a life that didn’t include them was a divide too far for them to cross.

Unlike many break-ups on TV, the Sanvers break-up was sparked out of love for each other and not hate. “What is most heartbreaking about the ending of their relationship is how much they love each other and how much they want the best for each other,” Leigh said.
“It’s not like you have this screaming, you’re throwing vases around the room. It’s like you really see that the intention there is to allow them to be their best selves no matter what.”
Check out the interview clip with Chyler Leigh discussing the break-up and whether it’s the end of Alex and Maggie’s relationship.
Could Maggie return to Alex’s life? It’s possible. The break-up on Supergirl was sparked by Lima’s limited availability to appear on Supergirl. f the actor’s schedule changes, perhaps she’ll return.
“…in a lot of ways, it’s not like an absolutely closure because no one ever knows exactly what’s going to happen,” Leigh said. “As of now, what we know is we got these five amazing episodes, based on availability. I know that just sounds like words, but it really does just come down to that. If she can come back, I know we would all love to have that happen. So if she’s available, that would be fantastic.”
