In the last episode Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite get introduced.

And here is the video (all scenes with masked women from the episode):
[SPOILERS, watch the episode first!]
On the one hand this episode is interesting and important as it introduces Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite into the show.
The episode takes a lot of time in showing backstory to the characters and that is needed to really “get” the characters.
On the other hand this episode offers only barely 5 minutes of Stargirl in costume and NONE(!) action at all. Like in the last episode Stargirl doesn’t have to fight against anyone.
And that is so far my biggest problem with the show.
In episode 1 Courtney had a short fight with some punks while wearing a bandana to mask herself. A nice scene, but short.
In episode 2 Stargirl fought Brainwave in a really good action scene. So far the best action we got.
In episode 3 Stargirl had a very short fight with Icicle. Nice, but not enough.
In episodes 4 and 5 there was NONE action as she was in costume (in regards of fights against someone).
The show really need to improve on that and I’m sure it will.
Because now all the characters of the hero side have been introduced.
And the trailer for episode 6 shows that they will get into some serious action! 🙂
Looks like the team get into a fight VS some experienced villains.
And the mini trailer already offers more action and peril then the last 3 episodes togetgher 🙂
Looking forward to this one!
Perhaps the villains are curious to peek under the masks of Stargirl and Wildcat…. 😉
