Stargirl Season 2 Episode 1 Spoilers
The premiere episode of ‘Stargirl’ season 2 is titled ‘Summer School: Chapter One.’ As the title suggests, summer break will be swiftly approaching, and Pat will try to convince the family to take a vacation. The advent of holidays is not the only motivating factor, but Courtney’s religious obsession with her Stargirl persona will also cause him to try and divert her attention. Additionally, Courtney’s schoolwork has also suffered because of her fondness for her alter ego and the world it pulls her into.
In the meantime, Beth will reconnect with Chuck, and in the process, discover a piece of information that her parents never cared to tell her about. Yolanda will still be reeling from Brainwave’s death, and Rick will somehow sense Solomon Grundy’s presence nearby, prompting him to follow up on his intuition and tracking the guy. Apart from the main characters, a set of fresh heroes and villains are all set to make their debut in the second season. Jakeem Thunder, The Thunderbolt (Yz), Jade, The Shade, and Eclipso are the ones expected to be the central focus in the second season.
Season 2 will also shed light on the artifacts Courtney stole: Alan Scott’s lantern and Johnny Thunder’s pink pen. Both of these elements are important to the narrative of the show. In a conversation with SFX Magazine, series showrunner Geoff Johns spilled some beans on some exciting details of the second season. “Those two elements (Alan Scott’s lantern and Johnny Thunder’s pink pen) play into the story pretty early on,” he said.
Moreover, Green Lantern’s daughter Jade will also show up in season 2, which means her brother Obsidian might make an appearance too. This might, in turn, reveal interesting facts about the Scott family. Johns added, “And where Jade is, her brother Obsidian surely can’t be far behind. We haven’t seen a character wield the power of Green Lantern for a long, long time on TV.” As per the showrunner, “The Thunderbolt has never been on the screen before in live-action.” Well, it is definitely going to be a wild ride. Check out the extended trailer for the second season as you gear up for the premiere episode!
