Stargirl Preview: The JSA Could Use a "Shining Knight" Right About Now

With only this week's episode to go before The CW's Stargirl launches into its two-part season finale (renewals rule!), Courtney (Brec Bassinger) and Pat (Luke Wilson) are in it pretty deep – though not as "deep" as Jake Austin Walker's Henry King, Jr. What? Too soon? Brainwave's (Christopher James Baker) awake and moving forward with Project: New America- and getting ready to use the knowledge of Courtney's cosmic staff-wielding alter ego to his advantage. Looks like what the JSA could use is a "Shining Knight" (aka Justin aka Mark Ashworth) in their hour of need- and it looks like that's exactly what they'll be getting based on the following preview images and promo:
