This week on DC’s Stargirl, Cindy revealed her plan for Mike, resulting in a brutal conflict between the JSA and Injustice Limitless… and different vested events. Who didn’t stroll away alive?
First, there was a little bit of desk setting, because the forever-glowering Isaac gave waitress Yolanda some lip about what the JSA did to his mother and father, and Artemis did similar with Beth. Courtney and Pat in the meantime volunteered to scrub up the highschool artwork room, the place they found a portray of Cindy wielding the Black Diamond. Stopping by the artwork room,
Barry White Cameron confirmed that Cindy is again on the town, and that he the truth is had a “bizarre” run-in along with her the opposite day. Placing two and two collectively, Pat and Courtney break up as much as respectively fetch S.T.R.I.P.E. and the remainder of the JSA.
Arriving on the Pit Cease, Pat was painfully stunned by Isaac’s sonic strumming of his mom’s violin. Artemis joined in, whaling on Pat, who (at first) refused to take swings at a child. Artemis stopped Isaac from killing a concussed Pat (“He’s my dad’s pal,” aww), then received to tearing S.T.R.I.P.E. aside. Mike in the meantime was rummaging round Zeke’s junkyard for a S.T.R.I.P.E. improve when Cindy confirmed as much as — no, LOL, not recruit him — however merely use him as bait.
At unconscious Pat’s hospital bedside with Barbara, Courtney kicked herself for not sticking along with her stepdad after studying in regards to the Cindy/Eclipso alliance. Courtroom then received a name from Mike, although it was Cindy on the opposite finish — inviting her to satisfy up on the cafeteria that night time to settle issues. Or else Mike dies. Distraught, Barbara made us of Richard Swift’s enterprise card and summoned The Shade, who was detached to Stargirl’s plight till he realized that arch enemy Cindy had the Black Diamond in her possession.
Quickly after arriving on the cafeteria, Courtney, Yolanda and Rick began slugging it out with Cindy/Shiv, Artemis and Isaac in a breathless six-minute struggle sequence that featured some nifty match cuts and actually did a quantity on a washroom. Beth in the meantime discovered and freed Mike, who had been strung up in a closet. Injustice Limitless was not down for the depend, although, as Cindy whipped out the Black Diamond — which is true when the shadowy Shade snaked into the cafeteria, ultimately taking his natty, top-hatted kind. The Shade chided Cindy for utilizing the Black Diamond in some “trivial, teenage gang struggle,” and invited her to show it over to him. Eclipso in flip instructed Cindy “it’s time… for me,” at which level he semi-possessed her and attacked The Shade. Seeing their frenemy in peril, Courtney charged at Cindy, however when the tip of the cosmic employees hit and shattered the Black Diamond, it apparently launched Eclipso in his corporeal kind!
Cindy went to stab Eclipso, however he rrrrripped a shiv from one in all her arms, after which flung it at Isaac. After libbing Cindy apart, Eclipso walked over to injured Isaac and did what he did to Cindy’s stepmom, inhaling/consuming the lad’s soul. Eclipso then took a shard of the diamond and flung it at Cindy’s toes, making a quicksand-like pool of goo into which she sank and disappeared, regardless of Courtney’s try to assist. Eclipso then flung The Shade right into a puff of smoke, and shorted out the cosmic employees when Courtney got here charging, earlier than scampering away on all fours.
Within the aftermath that night time, we noticed The Shade doubled over outdoors the American Dream places of work, earlier than he once more disappeared right into a smattering of smoke, whereas Courtney gave hospitalized Pat the 411 on Cindy and Isaac’s grim fates. Realizing that Eclipso was utilizing Cindy to his personal finish, Pat presumed that the evil entity will now intention to “corrupt, feed, and acquire energy.”
Spooked by the day’s occasions, Mike insisted Pat he needs his “personal S.T.R.I.P.E.,” in order that he isn’t scared and helpless transferring ahead. In the meantime on the Pit Cease, as Rick recouped from what Beth’s goggles recognized as a damaged rib, Yolanda noticed that Isaac wasn’t “evil” and didn’t should die — however Eclipso very a lot does.
The episode’s very closing sequence was a discomfiting one, as Eclipso lurched down an alleyway earlier than reworking into the cherubic-yet-creepy af Bruce from the sequence premiere’s flashback. The wee lad then skipped down predominant avenue, cackling….
