    They could team up as Brain Freeze.

    There's another potential hook Courtney has concerning Henry Jr, assuming they follow what's in the comics,
    the fact that Henry's mother was Sylvester Pemberton's sister.

    This fact came out in todays new episode. And yes, it looks like the predictions of Junior fighting along side the JSA came to be until:

    Senior killed Junior

    There was lots of ISA bad guy but kicking action.

    Stargirl was down her staff, which took off on it's own to confront Icicle after Courtney said not to night after a big blow up between her, her mother and Pat over the whole Stargirl situation. The staff attacked on it's own and was captured.

    Whereas Stargirl really struggled with Shiv, she totally dominated against those animated experiments of Dr. Ito and held her own against the "Dragon King" a lot better than she did against Shiv, especially being down her staff.

    Then you got that idiot trying to let Solomon Grundy out. That guy is more annoying than Mike.

    I find it hard to believe. He's telekinetic and would be able to protect himself.

    No one in comic books really dies. Now, the question is who is Courtney's father? No comic book spoilers. I'll just wait to find out.

    In addition to season 2 coming to The CW next year. I just read that Stargirl will appear in the upcoming DC movie "Black Adam" which is expected to be released in December 2021.


    Yeah, the next real question is who is Courtney's father. Before today's episode I believe she had it right. The picture she has of her father really looks like it could be Sylvester.



    And doing some digging on this topic the answer is not clear. Starman's and Sam Curtis' identifies have changed over the years and the TV show has more than one option to follow for who Courtney's father is. The two most likely scenario's we could see is either Starman really is her father, or Sam Curtis is a conman, a member of the Royal Flush Gang.

    Courtney (and her stunt double) busted out some serious fighting skills in this episode.

    It sucks being a teenager but it really sucks to be a teenager in Blue Valley when your father murders you without a care. Baby Brainwave ought to be dead. If you have telekinetic powers, it's better to use them before the roof caves in on you. Hopefully, he learns this if he gets a comic book resurrection.

    I'm glad that Courtney's mom found out about her secret. I think superhero shows are better when all the members of the good guy circle learn the secrets. Plus, the stepdad secretly sneaking around with the hot stepdaughter and keeping their rendesvous a secret from her mother sounds like scenes from a certain type of movie that I've definitely never watched but have friends who have told me about them.

    I'm also wondering how much of the action was Brec Bassinger's stunt double Kristina Basket.

    Kristina Baskett - IMDb

    Brec Bassinger was both a gymnast and competitive cheerleader growing up. Brec did go through stunt training camp and does many of her own gymnastic stunts.

    It looks like Kristina Basket only did the more dangerous stunts, or gymnastics stunts with the 6' staff that Brec struggled a little bit with with being only 5'2 at first. Kristina, who was an elite gymnast totally rocked pulling of the flips with the staff in stunt training camp.

    An interview I read by Brec said that she would have loved to have been allowed to do more stunts in the show. However, they opted for most gymnastic stunts with the staff to be done by Kristina not because she wan't capable, but for her safety. They don't want to risk any injury to their star. They did allow Brec to be harnessed into wires and do her own stunts such as the scene where she did the gymnastics moves on the staff in the first episode, but opted to let Kristina do most of the heavy lifting of stunts in later episodes.


    So I would assume most of the moves being busted with the staff was Kristina, but I wonder about all the moves that weren't with the staff. How much of those were actually Brec.

    I'm starting to wonder if Blue Valley High is going to have a Heathers or Sunnydale problem, where kids mysteriously keep disappearing or dying and nobody really talks about it. So far, we have Joey, the Wizard's kid, who was killed in front of classmates on a school trip, and the head cheerleader has a breakdown and disappears (as far as the rest of the school knows), and now one of the top athletes (did Henry play football? I know Sportsmaster and Tigress' daughter is the big football star, but Henry was always wearing his letter jacket so he must have been an athlete, right?) has disappeared (as far as the rest of the school will know when he doesn't show up to school the next day). And all of this started when that new girl moved to town...

    Some big names on her resume too. Like Game of Thrones and Divergent.

    Shows with smallish women doing athletic things! I bet if she were a few years older, she would have done hard time in the Whedonverse...

    Speaking of smallish women doing athletic things, they've made kind of a big deal about the Wildcat costume being equipped with gloves with claws, yet every time we've seen Ted Grant he was wearing fist wraps.

    Almost missed the last episode as it was re-named 'Stargirl' from 'DC's Stargirl'. For some reason I double checked my scheduled recording the night before.
