'Stargirl' Season 1 Episode 3: Two murders already, disturbed fans say 'this isn't what we signed up for'
'This episode has got really dark really quick. Dark and my anxiety don't mix,' said a fan
That was a rather dark-ish episode of 'Stargirl'. In Episode 3, Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) went up against Icicle, a ruthless and cold-blooded (no pun intended) meta, who can kill anyone, child or animal. Courtney's Cosmic Staff didn't help her much in the battle, and her classmate was killed. That's not the only thing, Icicle murdered his father as well. Realizing there are more villains to come and that she can't handle them alone, Courtney is all set to recruit other members of the Justice Society Of America.
Considering that this is only Episode 3 and there have already been two murders, fans are rather upset and said this isn't what they signed up for. "Yeah, I don't like this darkness at all. Might have to stop watching. Why can't they make superhero shows more accessible? Why can't they all be like The Flash & Supergirl? I love superheroes but can't watch 90% of superhero shows becuase of my anxiety."
"#Stargirl got too dark, too fast for me. We're dealing with enough right now; this isn't the show I signed up for," a fan tweeted.
"This episode has got really dark really quick. Dark and my anxiety don't mix... The first two episodes were fairly light. I hope this darkness won't be the theme from now on or I might have to stop #Stargirl half way through the season like with Batwoman," a fan wrote.
Others pointed out that 'mixing' dark and light wasn't such a bad thing. "Well sometimes you need dark episodes to mix in with the light. Not an issue for me," a fan argued.
Meanwhile, in the promos for the next episode, Stargirl begins to assemble the rest of the team. Fans are excited that the whole team is coming together now. "COURT YES BITCH WERE GETTING THE TEAM TOGETHER #Stargirl."
Another wrote, "She's gathering some troops..."
"Next weeks #StarGirl looks so goood! She’s recruiting?! AWESOME," wrote a fan.
"Let's go do some recruiting. Oh so this is a nice setup for the rest of the first season arc. Reforming the Justice Society. #[email protected]_cw," another fan tweeted.
'Stargirl' airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm on The CW. Let there be no murders, please?
