Prior to his time in the Celebrity Big Brother 2 house earlier this year, Jonathan Bennett took on a notable, exciting role: A part of the Supergirl season 4 guest cast. This marked a chance for him to be surrounded by some very cool people, show a different side, and play a character who could provide to be sinister … but also potentially understanding?

Based on the casting intel that emerged about the role long ago, we know that Bennett’s Quentin is a man who is immediately grateful when Supergirl saves his life; yet, this does not stop him from attending an anti-alien rally. Supergirl finds herself in a position where she is intent on convincing him otherwise. We know that Kara is a beacon of goodness, of optimism, and of helping others realize the right thing. It’s one of the reasons she is so admirable. Alas, the strength can be a weakness since not everyone is willing to listen or understand. There are those who seek to take advantage of her goodness and her capacity to care.
Is Bennett’s character willing to change, or will he always tow a different ideological line? This is something that this episode could make a little clearer.
Beyond Bennett’s role, the Supergirl season 4 episode 14 synopsis offers further insight:
SUPERGIRL TAKES A STAND — Between Ben Lockwood’s (Sam Witwer) new push to stir up the anti-alien movement and the Elite’s desire to target Lockwood and his minions, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is concerned about the safety of the American people – both human and alien. When Lockwood organizes a rally, the aliens decide to peacefully protest. Brainiac (Jesse Rath) and J’onn (David Harewood) join the alien march while Supergirl and Dreamer (Nicole Maines) patrol to keep everyone safe. Meanwhile, James (Mehcad Brooks) picks up his camera again to cover the march for CatCo, and Hayley (April Parker Jones) assigns Alex (Chyler Leigh) a job that clashes with her beliefs. When The Elite and Ben Lockwood stir up trouble at the rally, Supergirl is forced to take a stand. Jonathan Bennett guest stars. Andi Armaganian directed the episode written by Rob Wright & Jess Kardos (#414). Original airdate 3/10/2019.
There is, clearly, a lot of important stories to be told within this episode about equality, about rights, and about protests. The challenge, of course, becomes trying to ensure that there is new ground walked on and that the actors are not just stomping on territory covered in the first half of the season. Time will tell what becomes of this rally, and also if all of the many characters featured within this synopsis turn out to be okay.
