Last week, on Supergirl, we met Lyra (Tamzin Merchant), a new love interest for Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan). Their relationship seemed to move very fast, and we know next to nothing about the young lady other than that she is from Star Haven. So how serious is this relationship and where is it going? EW.com asked Jordan about what’s coming up for the two:
In our world strong-willed women and women who are powerful in their own ways tend to have other things going on, so we find out that there are secrets. But for the first few episodes that we see Winn and Lyra, it’s more about discovering how their relationship fits into this new world that we’re discovering on Supergirl.
And we know things are going to expand into the relationship with James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and their adventures with Guardian as executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told them that they are going to try and work as a trio, but the results has Lyra becoming the Yoko Ono of the group… which doesn’t bode well.
I find it interesting that since the move to the CW, the whole Winn-Kara-James love triangle has vanished where it was a big thing in the first season. Now Kara has Mon-El, Winn has Lyra and James has his shield.
