And now we see that Bennett has Colorful Hair of Plot Significance.

The other intern’s name is Greg, and he’s Polish, which means Sparrow can’t pull rank on him when it comes to Holocaust references. (Am I putting too much thought into a minor character? Probably.)


Sparrow: I mean, did you hear Bennett’s speech on Monday?

Talking about how America needs to be “protected” from rogue Beings, and eeeevil immigrants, and “alternative lifestyles.” Delivered standing on a farm, with his sleeves rolled up, like that’s fooling anyone.

. . . uh, no offense.

Greg: None taken . . . but you mean Beings like the shapeshifters, right? I don’t put them in the same category as oppressed humans.

Sparrow: They’re clearly more self-aware than animals–

Greg: That’s different too. Animals are alive.

Sparrow: And Beings aren’t?

Greg (off-panel): Well, no, I would say not.

To be alive, you’ve got to be able to die, right? And Beings don’t die.

Sparrow: Hah! One of them did die! It was killed in the Holocaust!

Greg: Hey! Don’t Godwin me! (See, you’re not the only one who can make geek references.)
