This week on DC’s Stargirl, a collection of quieter moments and wanted conversations set the desk for Season 2’s finale — whereas additionally leaving us with a haunting trace of what Eclipso has deliberate.
As Yvette Monreal recently told TVLine (and as we ourselves predicted a ways back), the JSA goes to wish all fingers on deck for the finale, and this Tuesday’s episode went about locking down that super-sized staff.
For instance, Courtney needed to persuade her mother, and later Yolanda, that they wanted to ally with Cindy/Shiv on this remaining showdown. Pat and Mike, in the meantime, went about bringing Rick and the Thunderbolt into the combat.
Pat paid a go to to Matt, who continues to be in traction on the hospital after being mistaken for Solomon Grundy a number of episodes in the past by his nephew, and summarily pummeled. Pat tried to attraction to Matt’s funding in salvaging Rick’s future, however when Matt responded by jotting down on a close-by notepad, “GO TO HELL,” an irked Pat locked the door and closed the blinds to the hospital corridor. Pat famous that Matt is a “dangerous man,” however added that one factor he has discovered over time is that he has some “dangerous” in himself, too….
We don’t know what all then transpired, however a number of scenes later, Pat was selecting Rick up exterior the cop store, the fees having been dropped!
Mike in the meantime adopted a path of supersized junk meals, adopted by the invention of a paper boy’s deserted bag, to find out that his pal Jakeem had “inherited” Thunderbolt. Factor is, the genie is presently on an hours-long Chinese language meals run — to China — so within the interim, Mike looped Jakeem in on all issues JSA, whereas additionally serving to wash a few of the Williams household’s dishes.
Courtney met up with Yolanda exterior of the church to relay the news that the OG JSA as soon as needed to kill somebody — Eclipso’s onetime host, Bruce Gordon — which means that Yolanda was not the primary hero to take a life. Yolanda, nevertheless, didn’t see this as the nice news that Courtney did. As an alternative, her takeaway was she was the second Wildcat to kill somebody, so she swore to by no means go well with up ever once more. Ever. However upon discovering Cindy in her bed room and studying that the previous ISA apprentice was now working alongside the JSA, Yolanda confirmed up at Court docket’s to say that she will rejoin the staff for this epic battle, if solely to maintain Shiv from (actually?) stabbing them within the again.
The episode ended with Beth and the returned Dr. Charles “Name me Chuck” McNider combining their goggles’ powers to find Eclipso, however in the end realizing they’d want the ISA’s supercomputer to complete the job. Arriving on the American Dream HQ, they had been startled by wee Bruce, who was happy to listen to that Beth had already signaled for her superfriends. In spite of everything, Eclipso’s cherubic alter ego gloated, he wants them all to perform his aim….
And as Beth inquired as to what precisely the demon’s endgame is, we see Inexperienced Lantern Alan Scott’s daughter Jennie persevering with to have some very dangerous goals (ever since she zapped together with her ring some darkish vitality “afterbirth” within the cafeteria). Jennie seems to be having glimpses of a near-future during which Yolanda, Cindy and Pat, on the very least, seem lifeless — and during which Stargirl is stepping previous their lifeless our bodies, now sporting a half-purple, Eclipso-like face.
Eclipso’s plan, Bruce informs Beth and Chuck on the American Dream workplace, is to take advantage of the badness in at least Courtney Whitmore… and in flip develop into “your new god.”
What did you consider this season’s penultimate hour? And who do you assume Cindy reached out to through phone, saying they wanted to get again to Blue Valley?
