Supergirl has added a new cast member, and he may create some conflict in the lives of Detective Maggie Sawyer and DEO Agent Alex Danvers.
Carlos Bernard, of 24 fame, will join the cast in a guest role as Oscar Rodas, the father of Maggie Sawyer, and a police officer like his daughter, accoring to TVLine. This comes on the heels of a tweet by the actor himself, teasing his involvement with the CW series:
Fans of the show may recall that Maggie and her father are not on the best terms; in the Season Two episode “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk,” Maggie reveals that her conservative father kicked her out of the house upon discovering her sexual orientation. The inevitable family reunion will likely not be easy for Maggie or for Alex Danvers, who proposed to Maggie in the second season finale. Will Maggie’s father come around and mend his relationship with his daughter? We will have to tune in to season three of Supergirl to find out.

Supergirl airs on Monday nights at 8/7c, with the third season premiering October 9th on The CW.
