Courtney confronts the idea that everything isn’t always black and white as she enters the Shadowlands in Stargirl 2×11, “Summer School: Chapter Eleven.” That journey will be personal and life-threatening, but it will also bring back a lot of familiar faces.
Cindy and Dr. McNider aren’t the only people Courtney will run into in the Shadowlands. The sneak peek at the episode unveiled at DC FanDome 2021 showed that Anaya and Isaac Bowin are there. However, the more concerning character lurking in the unshakeable shadows is Dr. Ito.
The context clues suggest the Shadowlands create a living hell for the characters to exist in for all eternity. Dr. Ito continues his grotesque experiments on Cindy. Courtney relives the way she believes she let her friends down before and after Eclipso’s arrival on the scene.
There’s also a quick shot of Barbara Whitmore that suggests Courtney’s time in the Shadowlands will take her back to that Christmas Eve when Barbara had to work the late shift, and Courtney’s father never showed up.
“Summer School: Chapter Eleven” is going to be a tough one to watch, but the concept is so excellent that we can’t help but look forward to it. Even with all that darkness hidden in the gray, there is still so much light fighting to be seen on Stargirl.
Back in Blue Valley, the team comes together to save Courtney. If anyone is going to crack the impossible code to free everyone from the Shadowlands, it’s Beth Chapel. Knowing Courtney, she isn’t leaving the Shadowlands without saving everyone else, too, including Cindy. The fractured JSA has no idea how big this rescue mission is!
