Stargirl 3×08, “Frenemies – Chapter Eight: Infinity Inc. Part Two,” takes Pat and The Shade into the Shadowlands. The unlikely duo will need to face their worst fears to find their way back to Courtney and Jennie. The promo video teases that those fears will include The Gambler, potentially typing back to Blue Valley’s murder mystery.
So, not only does that mean Eric Goins will reprise his role as Steven Sharpe, but it also signals that Pat and The Shade have some unresolved feelings about The Gambler’s death. “Frenemies – Chapter Eight: Infinity Inc. Part Two” could reveal more about Pat and The Shade’s roles — or not — in The Gambler’s death.
The Shadowlands has that revealing effect on Stargirl‘s story. Stargirl 2×11, “Summer School: Chapter Eleven,” does this in spades for Cindy Burman, specifically. The ripple effects of the character-driven reveals in that episode are still felt on the show now.
With Pat and The Shade in the Shadowlands, Courtney is tasked with helping her friends navigate their powers. While Jennie has learned more about her abilities, “Frenemies – Chapter Eight: Infinity Inc. Part Two” will likely see Courtney do whatever she can to tell Jennie and her brother Todd, who fears his powers can end the world as they know it.
Ultimately, “Frenemies – Chapter Eight: Infinity Inc. Part Two” will need to provide a satisfying conclusion to its Infinity Inc. arc. Hopefully, that doesn’t mean Stargirl won’t say a permanent goodbye to Jennie and Todd.
