Supergirl and James Olsen were just not meant to be.

If you thought “Supergirl” was merely sidelining Kara (Melissa Benoist) and James (Mehcad Brooks) relationship, you have another thing coming. The popular relationship met its end in the season 2 premiere, and it doesn’t look as if the writers are planning on rekindling the pals’ romance in the near future.

Why End The Romance?

As it stands, Benoist and Brooks’ characters are on different pages, although not for lack of chemistry.

“We realized that the best scenes between them were just the nice, sweet scenes where they were being friends,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told KSiteTV.

“Most of us have had friendships that turned into something more, and then you realize maybe it wasn’t. It felt like a very natural, real story that we could be telling.”

Right now, both James and Kara will have their hands full discovering what it means to be themselves. For the Kryptonian, this means focusing on what’s best for Kara. For the photographer, it means stepping out from behind the camera…and out of the shadows. Just as Kara focuses on the day-to-day, Olsen will suit up as the Guardian.

Snuffing out the relationship before it ever really started could prove to be best for both characters.

“Supergirl” “has a large fan base and a loyal fan base, and we didn’t feel like we could just drop [the relationship] because we had made such a big deal about it in the first season,” Kreisberg explained. “But we thought, rather than just opening the episode with ‘well, we had our summer romance, sorry that didn’t work out,’ we wanted to actually make it part of the story.”

What's Next For "Supergirl"?

Next time on “Supergirl,” actress Lynda Carter will shed her Wonder Woman boots for the sensible attire suited to the leader of the free world.

While The DEO works to protect the president with alien vs. human rights issues plaguing National City during “Welcome to Earth”, Kara will have to track down an escaped Mon-El (Chris Wood). Is Earth’s latest newcomer responsible for an attack on the POTUS?
