Supergirl returns Monday, April 16th with brand new episodes following its nine-week hiatus. Needless to say, the drama is about to get really intense.

Stars Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood talked with Entertainment Weekly about the latest tumult in the Kara Danvers/Mon-El relationship. Oh boy, is drama on the horizon.

It was previously revealed that Mon-El and his wife Imra (Amy Jackson) entered into their marriage for political reasons. Why they do love each other, the return to the 21st century and Kara is bringing up complicated feelings for Mon-El.

Wood admits that it’s just a sucky situation to be in.

“We definitely see that Mon-El has evolved to the point where he is able to respect the situation that he’s in, despite anything that’s going on that’s conflicting or confusing for him. He tries to navigate it the best way that anyone can. Mon-El has to find a way to stay true to his duty and his word. He has to toe that line of knowing what is appropriate to reveal, and what is appropriate to keep back. He has this quiet subtextual argument with himself throughout the rest of the season.”

Of course, it turns out that Imra is also keeping things from her husband. Including their real mission in the 21st century.

“He’ll find out exactly what that plan was, and why they left him out of it. Obviously, that presents some problems for the Legion, and for the DEO, because there’s a level of mistrust that comes with withholding information, which is a lesson Mon-El has learned multiple times, but this time he’s on the other side of it.”

Meanwhile, Kara’s entirely in the dark about things, especially the arranged marriage.

“She doesn’t know at this point that they’re in an arranged marriage. But if he decides to tell her that, obviously she might change her mind [about her feelings]”, Benoist said.

Supergirl airs Mondays 8/7c on the CW.
