While speaking with Empire Online at Comic-Con, star Melissa Benoist said “I always wanted them to interact, because it’s such an important relationship, and they have learned so much from each other. She has things he doesn’t have, he has things she doesn’t have, but they’ve learned from each other, so I think it’s perfect.”
