Well this is interesting. The role of Maggie’s father has been cast which could bring a whole lot of new problems for Alex and Maggie!

EW has confirmed that 24 alum Carlos Bernard is set to guest-star on the third season of Supergirl as Maggie’s (Floriana Lima) father, who is also a cop. Oscar Rodas’ conservative views led to him kicking his teenage daughter out of the house when he learned she was gay.

Gee that sounds like a recipe for a whole lot of angst right there. Oh dear.

TV|Line is reporting:

Like his daughter, Bernard’s Oscar Rodas is also a cop. It was revealed last season that Maggie grew up in a very conservative family that did not approve of her being a lesbian. After she was outed, Maggie and her parents got in a big fight, which resulted in the teen getting kicked out of the house by her dad. Will pops drop by to make peace and give his stamp of approval to a possible engagement?

At the close of the Season 2 finale, Alex popped the question to her girlfriend Maggie, whose answer remains a mystery for now. And although Maggie’s portrayer, Floriana Lima, will step down from series regular to recurring for Season 3, executive producer Greg Berlanti doesn’t believe the change will be perceptible to viewers.
