Maggie Sawyer's Father is Carlos Bernard

Breaking News! We can definitively confirm that Carlos Bernard, known from Fox's 24, and Flame Ventures' Alien Raiders, will be guest-starring as Oscar Rodas, a cop and Maggie Sawyer's father! He was excited to tweet out that he would be working on the show (see below). What event brings Maggie Sawyer's dad to National City is anybody's guess but we are certainly excited to see it! You may remember in season 2, Maggie told the story of being kicked out of her home when her conservative parents did not approve of her coming out, so expect this reunion not to be an easy one. Fans know that Floriana Lima's schedule didn't allow her to return as a full-time cast member so it's fair that speculation on what Oscar Rodas is doing in National City, and if it will affect Maggie's story in season 3, is to be expected!

Lucky fan, Julie Holden, had the opportunity to meet Carlos on set and took the picture below!

That awkward moment when a Latino man plays the father of a white woman who's pretending to be Latina....

IMO when people say less romance, they mean less romance then last season. Of course romance is a part of life and will appear in the series, but this show is classified as an action series and so the majority of the show should be that - action. I'm not a fan of the Kara/Mon-El relationship (because I am not a fan of MonEl) but I know I am for seeing Alex and Maggie's relationship grow. The problem was that season 2 was a soap opera of romances and those romances took up most of the time. However, in looking at the number of villains being introduced this season, I have a feeling that the writers have listened and realize that mistake and that we will be seeing more action this season. For me, as long as I see more action and more Danver sister moments, I'm a happy camper.


100% agree with your whole comment. I hope you are right about the writers realizing their mistake.

2. I love when Science Fiction shows like this one, has the courage to take the risk of social/political commentary.

3. Relationships are a part of life. Yes I tune in for action and to believe a girl can fly, but constant action without story is boring and pointless. How can we believe Kara, Alex and J'onn are protecting the people they love if we are not shown the relationships.

Don't judge and put the writing on the wall for this episode until it airs.


I agree 100%, Eire El. On the subject of how much romance/relationships to include, I'm more interested in well-rounded characters and their development than in constant action, so yes, I like that element of the story. I do think that last season there was too much, largely because nearly everyone in the core cast had a relationship being established. That has been achieved now so I think we can do with less. It's still important though, so I hope these relationships continue to be explored, especially Kara/Mon-El and Alex/Maggie.

As for the comments about "too much romance." How about lessening the leads romance plot before worrying about a secondary romance?


Yes - agree - I'm for lessening all the romance in the show and getting back to the action and adventure that comes with going up against new and old villains - makes for an exciting season so I am eagerly awaiting season 3.


I agree also. Get back to the action and adventure instead of trying to make it a soap opera.

A couple of things, I'd like to point out:

1. I love this show about as much as Star Trek TOS (my all time favourite)

2. I love when Science Fiction shows like this one, has the courage to take the risk of social/political commentary.

3. Relationships are a part of life. Yes I tune in for action and to believe a girl can fly, but constant action without story is boring and pointless. How can we believe Kara, Alex and J'onn are protecting the people they love if we are not shown the relationships.

4. Ever since Maggie told Alex the truth about her parents and Aunt, I've been wondering will we ever see this dynamic unfold on screen.

5. Until the episode airs we don't know the fictional context of that "building a wall" line (obviously it relates to my point 2):

5a. Is a wall physically being built on Earth 38?
5b. Is it metaphorically relating to an [in show] event?
5c. Is it all in the mind of a psychotic father?.

Don't judge and put the writing on the wall for this episode until it airs.

Well said as usual Eire El this is a perfect example of why I'm not watching any BTS video. BTS pictures are cool and I don't have the willpower not to look but I'm drawing the line at video.

I'm baffled right now, because of a single solitary statement, this is all of a sudden a political issue?


Hey, Doc. It's just a long discussion we had last season on politics, is all. There's also long thread we had on it awhile back.

Bbbuuuuttt.. As much as I'm not a fan of their openly one-sided political commentaries (politics in a show I think are fine WHEN it's not so one-sided), I've gotten over it because I love the cast, and the overall story. Plus, I can overcome anything IF they are, indeed, going to have more Danver Sisters moments. :P

No one's perfect And, I think most people are inheritantly good, and mean well.

And as many have stated, I need to remember not to judge based on a few BTS sentences. For all we know, it could be cut for time. It also wouldn't fit the President's narrative from Season 2. So... Honestly... I'm hoping I jumped the gun on this one. I'm totally down with being wrong and will be the first one to admit when I am.

I'm baffled right now, because of a single solitary statement, this is all of a sudden a political issue? When instead the focus should be on the fact that Maggie's parents decided to forget about her at one of the most important points of her life. An all too COMMON occurrence for LGBT kids.
