Spoilers ahead for the Supergirl season finale – you’ve been warned.

The Season 2 of Supergirl ended last week, with Alex Danvers proposing to her girlfriend, police detective Maggie Sawyer.

But the future of one of TV’s few lesbian couples looks as ill-fated as Floriana Lima, who plays Sawyer, is leaving to pursue other opportunities. (She’ll appear in several episodes in Season 3 to wrap up the #Sanvers storyline.)

After Alex (Chyler Leigh) proposed, Maggie didn’t technically give her an answer (other than “Excuse me?”), but for what it’s worth, she didn’t look the least bit upset that Alex popped the question. In case you need a refresher, check out her reaction below.

You can’t fake that kind of unbridled joy:

But acording to a statement released by executive producer Andrew Kreisberg last week, Lima will appear in “multiple episodes” of Season 3.

We adore Floriana and have loved working with her to tell this inspiring story. Although she’s not available to us as a series regular next season… we’re happy she’ll be returning for multiple episodes in Season 3.”

How you choose to interpret that statement will reveal whether you’re a glass half-full or half-empty type of person; “multiple” could mean “10” just as easily as it could mean “two.”

In February, Maggie and Alex’s relationship was the focus of Supergirl’s Valentine’s Day episode.

Of course, the more surprising announcement came courtesy of Lima, who took to Twitter shortly after the news was released.

Earlier this month, she told TVLine,

What’s important is to show [Maggie/Alex] as a relationship and not to focus fully on the fact that these are two gay women… We want to get it right, and we want to really think things through.”

It may not be over yet, but the writing is absolutely on the wall for Sanvers. So here’s our question for you: How do you predict Maggie and Alex’s story will come to a close, at least for now? Will Maggie end up turning her down completely? Or will she accept, only to be called out of town on a work-related assignment?

Frankly, I’ll accept pretty much any outcome, save for Maggie being killed off — which I’m fairly confident the show would never do.
