Stargirl - The Killer

In an episode that gives us Mike (Trae Romano) and Jakeem (Alkoya Brunson) working their way back home to warn of the Ultra-Humanite, attempts to broker peace between the JSA and the Mankents, and (as the title suggests) the reveal of our killer, "The Killer" is most notable for the final appearances of Crusher (Neil Hopkins) and Paula (Stella Smith). Having started their run on the show as low-card villains which slowly became comic-relief neighbors, the Crocks did warn me over and their final appearance gives us them work separately and together as true friends of the heroes and loving parents to the young woman they will leave behind. For Stargirl to make me care about the pair's deaths it a testament to the investment made in both characters.

As Sylvester (Joel McHale) and Pat (Luke Wilson) warn the team about the dangerous of the Ultra-Humanite, and Courtney (Brec Bassinger) makes a plan to unite all friends and frenemies together to stop him, the episode also offers the return of a character likely to throw a major wrench in those plans as Icicle (Neil Jackson) is revealed to be living in the sewers and the one responsible for spying on our heroes. We'll no doubt get some flashbacks to explain the return of Icicle whose return to Blue Valley is likely to have ripples across the fragile peace Courtney and friends have attempted to build towards all season. And is he, or the Ultra-Humanite, the final big bad of the season?
