While we're still not looking to dive too deeply into spoilers, let's just say that the series finale of The CW's Brec Bassinger-starring DC's Stargirl rings very familiar to James Robinson & Paul Smith's 1993 four-issue DC Comics miniseries, The Golden Age (find out more about that here, and you'll see what we're talking about). Let's just say that it's pretty clear that lines have been drawn and that the final face-off between Courtney (Bassinger) and "Sylvester" (Joel McHale) is close at hand… with the fate of the world on the line. So with that in mind, here's an updated look at next week's episode, "The Reckoning" (including newly-released preview images).
A Look at The CW's DC's Stargirl Series Finale "The Reckoning"
"DC's Stargirl" Season 3 Episode 13 "Frenemies – Chapter Thirteen: The Reckoning": THE FINAL SHOWDOWN – Courtney and the JSA find themselves in the fight of their lives against their biggest threat yet. Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Cameron Gellman, Meg DeLacy, Hunter Sansone, Alkoya Brunson, and McHale are also set to appear. Walter Carlos Garcia is the director, while Johns has crafted the finale's script. Now, here's a look at the preview images that were released earlier today, along with a look back at the series finale trailer:
On The Wayne Ayers Podcast, Bassinger shared that series creator Geoff Johns "went the extra mile and shot two different endings" for the season three finale "because he did not want to leave the fans with all these question marks." While there's a chance that the alternate ending will end up on a DVD set, Bassinger isn't sure fans will want to know what was planned for the fourth season. "It will make people sad because the fourth-season idea was insane. Like, it would have been epic. And I actually believe that's why it took so long for us to officially get the cancellation news because Geoff came in with such a wonderful idea…. But it wasn't meant to be," Bassinger revealed.
