Stargirl Episode 12 Recap
The countdown for ISA’s plan to brainwash the entire populace begins! There are only 11-1/2 hours left for the villains to start Dr. Ito’s machine. At the Whitmore-Dugan home, Courtney and Barbara get ready to flee the city. Mike is skeptical to leave his school in the middle of November but Pat tries to push some sense into him. Well, out of nowhere, Tigress makes an appearance, shooting arrows at Barb. But at that precise moment, the Cosmic Staff does its duty. Courtney reaches just in time to save the day.
Courtney and her fam meet up with the JSA in a hidden cabin in the woods. Cindy requests Henry Sr. to release her from her cell but he denies it. At the cabin, Beth realizes that Yolanda is mourning her ex’s loss while Rick explains to Justin how the ISA murdered his parents. Pat and Rick are able to track the blueprints for the network of tunnels the ISA uses. They also find a sample of the amplifier that transmits brainwaves. The team makes a detailed plan to attack the ISA’s lair.
As the heroes prepare for their final battle, Beth hacks into the ISA computer and discovers that the villains have some good motives behind their actions — like ending discrimination, using solar power, and tackling global warming. Rick now asks Pat if the bad guys are indeed bad. This is when Chuck informs that people who resist the machine die a painful death.
We also learn that 11-1/2 hours is not when the brainwashing will start but when it will conclude! So, JSA only has 30 minutes in hand. As Barbara and Justin go into a trance (since Brainwave has already started its work), Pat is affected in a different way. ISA plans to use him as a powerful fighter for the villains. So when Courtney asks STRIPE as to what their next move should be, he attacks! THE END.
