Stargirl Season 2 Episode 9 teases the storm coming alive which we were seeing since the beginning. For what? Well, it’s Eclispo targeting every hurdle one by one. Now his next target is none other than Courtney’s own family and loved ones. In case you haven’t caught up, Eclispso managed to break out of the Black Diamond thanks to the help of Cindy whom he kills later. Since then he has kept his cover posing as a little child running around the town. It was a matter of time he started targeting Supergirl and her friends.
Yolanda became the first victim of his attack. He haunted her with the death of Brainwave so bad, she gave up being Wildcat altogether. Recently, he crossed Beth and Rick as his next targets. He managed to grab the nerves Rick by using his buddy Solomon Grundy. But, not the same with Beth. Seems like Eclipso can’t expect to win if the heroes remain strong. This almost led him to come out in the open to fight Beth. Here is a complete breakdown of what went down and what we can expect next from the coming Stargirl Season 2 Episode 9
Stargirl Season 2 Episode 8 Recap
Previously on Stargirl Season 2, we opened up with Ms. Woods knocking on Rick’s door to apologize to him. Just when he had a chance to get back to college, Rex decided to be a jerk to Ms. Woods. This made Rick angry and sorry for his life. To bent out his frustration he went to the woods where he met Solomon Grundy. Courtney plans to talk to Yolanda but it seems like she has given up as her Wildcat costume is left on her doorstep.
Meanwhile, Beth manages to make contact with Dr. McNider, and this time they actually have a clear talk until he had to go away. We find out that Rick had befriended Solomon Grundy and has been feeding him for a while now. He talks to him about life and they have sort of becoming friends. With Wildcat giving up, Courtney believes it’s high time she and Pat start working on the staff.
Meanwhile, Beth faces a harsh truth when her parents reveal she is the reason behind their divorce. Hoping it’s a bad dream she runs away. Rick on his way hears news of a bear’s appearance in the town on the radio. Believing these hunters may be hunting Grundy he turns around. He even calls Courtney and Pat to help who soon arrive.
Beth battles a little boy who is showing her worst fears. She is smart enough to realize this Eclipso playing with her. Rick finds Solomon Grundy but with the dead body of a girl. This makes him frustrated who calls Grundy a monster as he hunts him down. Courtney and Rick later check on the girl and realize she wasn’t real and probably a trick of Eclipso.
Beth battles Eclipso head-on when he couldn’t take her out with illusions. But Beth’s will of not giving up and her glasses make sure she triumphs. Dr. McNider calls her again and tells her about the powers of these Goggles who let her see through Eclipso. Meanwhile, Rick ends up beating the wrong person believing it’s Grundy due to Eclipso’s visions. It took Beth’s staff to make him realize. The episode closed with Beth realizing all she heard from her parents never happened and was Eclipso. Also, an alone Grundy crying for his friend as Courtney, Pat and Rick left.
Stargirl Season 2 Episode 9 Release Date & Preview
Stargirl Season 2 Episode 9 is releasing on 5 October 2021. It is titled, “Summer School: Chapter Nine”. The official synopsis of the episode says that Eclipso is next planning to target Courtney and her loved ones. Starting with Rick who will be coming to face his painful past. Mike will be struggling to come to face the guilt of him being part of Icicle’s death.
From what we saw in the recent episode, we can bet the only way to beat Eclipso would be to not let your fears take over you. Courtney’s family needs to do the same. Probably, if Beth could come as a big help as she recently beat him in the same. Let’s see how it goes down. Until then, check out the official promo for Stargirl Season 2 Episode 9.
