'Stargirl' Episode 6 Preview: Will the Justice Society's first mission be a complete fiasco?
In the next episode of 'Stargirl', the team prepares for their first mission
After much debate, discussion and refusals, Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) finally managed to recruit a Justice Society team for herself, which includes Wildcat (Yvette Monreal), angsty and vengeful Rick Tyler (Cameron Gellman and Beth Chapel (Anjelika Washington). Each of the teenagers have their own background stories, some less pleasant than you would imagine.
Yolanda Montez (Wildcat) was a victim of revenge porn and has been grounded by her family and isolated from her schoolmates, since. Rick is the son of Hourman, the founder of the Justice Society Of America, who was murdered by Solomon Grundy when Rick was a child. For nine years, Rick believed that they were killed in a car accident. Fueled by revenge, Rick decides to join the JSA. As for Beth, she strong-armed her way into the society after she discovered Courtney's secret because Courtney isn't blessed with the power of discretion yet.
However, the Injustice Society of America is just warming up. Icicle (Neil Jackson) has already proved that he won't hesitate to kill. Apart from this, the nefarious offsprings of the ISA are hanging around too. It's going to be quite a tough battle for Courtney and the team.
In the next episode, they get ready for their next mission. The official synopsis reads, "Courtney makes a difficult decision after Pat confronts her about the consequences of recruiting new members to the JSA; Barbara shows up in support of Mike's science fair; Courtney, Yolanda, Beth and Rick prepare for their first major mission."
In the previous episode, Pat had just discovered that Courtney was recruiting members for the JSA, and he obviously, isn't going to be entirely pleased about it.
In the promos, we get to see the team suiting up.
Rick's entrance into the team was a topic of discussion among fans, who warmed up to the bitter and angry character. Speaking about Rick Tyler to MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Gellman said, "He is well-intentioned. He's someone who genuinely wants to do the right thing but gets overwhelmed by his emotions. And I think he's an overthinker, you know? When he gets overwhelmed or when he starts to feel like he's drowning in his circumstances, he snaps. That's just a behavioral pattern for him. He's really longing for a sense of belonging and seeking out his identity. By the time we meet him, he's lost a lot and doesn't know who he is," he explained. "Rick is super lost and super frustrated about where he is, in his life."
