DC’s Stargirl has been back for a couple of weeks and so far season 2 is just as good as season 1! That is if it’s not even better! A darker tone, more heroes and a terrifying upcoming villain is enough to keep any DC Comics fan on their toes. Here is the DC’s Stargirl 2×05 synopsis!
It looks like the fifth episode of the season will feature some stormy weather hitting Blue Valley. This storm seems like it could be hinting at the fact that Eclipso will soon make his debut. Based on what we know, Eclipso will be far more dangerous than any other villain the JSA has faced so far.
We’re going to go ahead and put the description below so that you can read it for yourselves!
“STORMY WEATHER OVER BLUE VALLEY — As Pat (Luke Wilson) and Courtney (Brec Bassinger) clash over their next steps in their search for Eclipso, ominous weather conditions in Blue Valley hint that he may be near. Meanwhile, Cindy’s (Meg DeLacy) plan to recruit another student takes an unexpected turn, and Cameron (Hunter Sansone) opens up to Courtney. Amy Smart, Yvette Monreal, Cameron Gellman, Anjelika Washington and Trae Romano also star. Sheelin Choksey directed the episode written by Steve Harper.”
Geoff Johns spoke to Decider recently about that new, scarier tone. Here’s what he had to say!
“It’s interesting because Season 2, I knew that I wanted the show to remain Stargirl, with its heart and its optimistic internal compass and characters that really cared about one another. But I also didn’t want to just repeat Season 1 and say, “oh, this season they’re going to fight Matter Master, or the big villain of the year is this.” I really wanted it to feel different tonally, because I want every season that we get to do of Stargirl to feel like a 13 chapter serialized movie, more than one of the TV shows, so that each season has its own tonal differences. And for this one, the touchstones that I used, that I loved growing up, are some of those films that had scared me as a kid, like Lost Boys and Nightmare on Elm Street and Young Sherlock Holmes, which is an under-appreciated, classic film from my youth. There were a lot of frights in there. It was scary. And it was kids taking on things that were bigger than them.
So the inspiration was diving into horror and making it more frightening… And as the season progresses, it becomes more and more like these characters have been thrown into a psychological horror film. That just felt different, and new, and very Eclipso. Having someone that was all about exploiting corruption and darkness within humanity, and facing against somebody like Courtney, who wields the light and has it within her so bright, it was important to maintain the show and have the show feel like Stargirl, but also make sure that it felt different… It doesn’t feel repetitive in any way.”
