Stargirl - Chapter Two: The Suspects

Although the members of the JSA return to school, the murder of the Gambler (Eric Goins) continues to be on everyone's mind. Yolanda (Yvette Monreal) is quick to blame Cindy Burman (Meg DeLacy) who the group found at the scene (and turns out to be in possession of the dead man's laptop). Equally quick to accuse is Sylvester Pemberton (Joel McHale) who attacks the Shade (Jonathan Cake), twice. Attempting to make amends he pulls Courtney (Brec Bassinger) our of school which doesn't go over well with her parents but does teach her a new trick with the staff.

The Shade, who departs Blue Valley at the end of the episode for parts unknown, seems to be ruled out as a suspect. Here's hoping Cindy doesn't turn out to be the killer which would justify Yolanda's attitude towards her in ways that I don't think the show's more hopeful message vibes with. We do get some flashbacks to the Gambler's last day, the return of Cameron (Hunter Sansone ) who seems to be a bit our of control, and the tease that the Crocks (who also don't seem like the best choice for killers) are hiding something to close out the episode as well. I do have one theory on a suspect the show hasn't yet considered, but we'll see where the investigation takes Courtney from here.
