‘Supergirl’ (Season 1): Who Would You Choose?

James and Winn

Kara Danvers has a lot on her plate.

In her day-to-day life, she is the overworked personal assistant of media mogul Cat Grant, but when she’s not wearing her glasses and hiding that long blonde hair, she is National City’s own Supergirl, wearing that very familiar red cape, skirt and knee-high boots as well as that red-encrusted “S” symbol on her chest.

As if battling powerful aliens, trying to dump a deadly bomb, meeting incredibly difficult deadlines and watching her boss’s kid for a day aren’t hard enough tasks, Kara has two very different – but special – guys in her life. One who she is completely nuts for (even if she won’t admit it to herself) and one who is completely nuts for her (even if she doesn’t see it).

Let’s take a look at both of these guys:

• Winslow “Winn” Schott (Jeremy Jordan) – Winn, the IT guy at CatCo who Cat Grant didn’t even know worked at her company, learned the truth about Kara right after her heroic effort to save that plane from crashing (the plane that her sister Kara was on). After that, he was very instrumental in helping her create her costume, going through numerous incarnations to get that iconic look, and even setting up an entire office filled with computers in the CatCo building as a home base of operations. He has tried to be subtle in showing his feelings towards her, but she has missed all the indicators. He has even tried kissing her cheek, but she is still oblivious or perhaps she can’t see past…

• James “Jimmy” Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) – James, as he prefers to be called, is the best friend of Superman (aka Clark Kent aka Kara’s cousin from Krypton), who has relocated to National City, becoming the latest employee at CatCo. He quickly caught Kara’s attention with his charm and good looks, but when she discovered that James has a past with Lucy Lane (the younger sister of legendary Lois Lane), she starts to worry that she has no chance with the photographer-extraordinaire. And, even less chance once she saw James and Lucy kissing at the end of last night’s episode.

Who would you choose if you were Kara? The sweet, tender-hearted IT guy who is crazy about her or the handsome photographer who is a devoted friend but only has eyes for another? If I were Kara, I would set my sights on Winn because he would be a wonderful boyfriend, but – as we all know – love triangles (or love quadrangles if you add in Lucy Lane) are the main stay of television shows and Kara’s love life will not be settled any time soon. It’s simply too early to have her settled down with one specific guy.

The next new episode of the debut season of ‘Supergirl’ will air on CBS on Monday, November 30 at 8/7c.
