When Imra was first revealed as being Mon-El’s wife I was shocked and confused. I had avoided spoilers and paid for it in a big way. Mon-El returning married was the last thing I could have imagined and I just wanted “Imra Ardeen” gone.
But since then she’s become a likeable character. She respects Kara and isn’t threatened about Kara’s feelings for Mon-El; in fact she’s understanding of them. None of this is Imra’s fault, like Kara said, this is “just three good people stuck in a really crappy situation”.
She’s also a dedicated hero herself, which I respect and I thought the team up between her, Supergirl, PSI and Livewire in 2X11 was a lot of fun to watch. Imra’s suit is one of the best on The CW shows and the actress Amy Jackson is an established star in India, it’s nice to see the show actually taking time to cast and shape iconic characters from the comics (the same goes for Brainaic 5 who I also love).
Obviously I don’t want her and Mon-El to be married, liking Imra and wanting Mon-El (a character I obviously love) to be happy, but at the same time detesting this coupling is conflicting. In a way it makes me angry, I can't understand why they'd have wasted Saturn Girl's main plot point on a unneeded love triangle. I wish that Kara and her could have teamed up without it being awkward. I wish they could have been actual friends, instead we just have painful scenes where Kara is clearly uncomfortable and hurting.
I never thought I’d say this but I think I’ll be sad when Saturn Girl does eventually depart. I'm loving the Legion and I do think they've made this season stronger. Maybe this is because I do really feel that Karamel will be endgame, and I’m so sure about that that I can’t be threatened by "Saturnvalor".
