At the end of the Season 1 finale of “Supergirl,” Kara (Melissa Benoist) and James (Mehcad Brooks) shared a promising kiss — a gesture that suggests that the two are already in a romantic relationship together. But when Season 2 starts, it seems that the two are going to have some difficulties making time for each other.
According to TV Guide, Kara and James will struggle to connect with one another as the Girl of Steel’s professional life at CatCo World Media becomes her priority. Kara even becomes more focused on her career when she tags along on an interview with her cousin Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin).
While it’s unclear how Kara’s commitment to her work will ultimately affect her relationship with James, Benoist told TVLine last June that she thinks Kara and James’ dynamic will remain enjoyable to watch.
“What I love about Kara is how naïve and innocent she is about love and how she kind of trips and falls over herself, figuring it out, so whatever happens I can assure you, it will probably be funny and awkward and great,” the 28-year-old actress said.
As revealed last July, Season 2 will introduce Snapper Carr (Ian Gomez), a determined and intelligent newsman hired by Cat (Calista Flockhart) to be the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine. Since Snapper is known for his strong commitment to uncompromising journalism, his arrival to the company is expected to make Kara’s work more demanding.
“I think it’s going to present a lot of challenges for Kara even more than she ever had with Cat,” Benoist told TVLine of Snapper’s introduction to the series. “[While Kara and Cat] had such a symbiotic relationship, I think with Snapper Carr — it’s definitely a hurdle and a nice challenge for Kara.”
“Supergirl” Season 2 premieres on Monday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
