Another great episode.
The show really needs to do more with Barbara and Mike or else kill both characters off to up the tension.
Christopher James Baker is a Series Regular, and so unless he’s just going to show up in flashbacks, Brainwave Sr isn’t defeated yet.
After spending the entire episode rightfully trying to be the adult, Pat capitulated to Courtney taking on the identity of Stargirl rather quickly, which felt ‘off’.
We know the elder Dr. Chapel worked with Brainwave Sr, but I’m trying to figure out if her husband is the guy who told Barbara that Sharpe can be tough.
Doing a role call of ‘junior’ ISA characters, we’ve got Henry Jr, Artemis, Cindy Burman, Joey Zarick, and Cameron Mahkent (whom we didn’t see this episode), and although it doesn’t look like any of them know about their parents’ villainous activities right now, I don’t expect that to still be the case by the end of the season (and we already know it won’t be for Cindy).
I think we found out this episode why Rick Tyler was relegated to the “losers” table and was in detention with Courtney in the Pilot, and I’m liking the Batman parallel they 're setting up for him becoming the new Hourman, not only because I love the Batman character, but also because of the fact that it alludes to the second New 52 Earth 2 Batman (Thomas Wayne) basically being an Hourman equivalent.
Courtney made fun of Pat’s codename in the Pilot, but she’s not much better at coming up with alter ego monikers herself (Subatomic Tactical Robot Internet Pat Enhancer, really?).
I was convinced in the Pilot that Pat was protesting a little too much about Starman being Courtney’s dad because he knew something more than he was,letting on, so it’s a little less interesting that he actually genuinely believed what he was saying.
Yolanda was wasted this episode, and I’m surprised we didn’t see more of Beth or see Rick at all.
Like I said at the start, this was a great episode, and I can’t wait until next week.
