Stargirl continues to best itself with 2×03, “Summer School: Chapter Three.” This episode picks up the season at full momentum as all the puzzle pieces start to fall in place. The characters’ dynamics deepen as The Shade pushes the JSA together after being separate for much of the season so far. As the JSA continues to work through their trauma, Stargirl explores the depths of their grief and passion for heroism by continuing to explore what it means to be a superhero. All the while, the show maintains an interest in The Shade. This sets him up as a villain with more depth than the shadows he manipulates.
