Stargirl Season 1 Preview: Courtney & Pat Have Some Explaining To Do

In our last preview for The CW's Stargirl, we discussed how bad things were getting for Courtney (Brec Bassinger) and her newly-formed JSA, especially after Courtney discovered Jordan's (Neil Jackson) chilly alter-ego and Barbara (Amy Smart) found Courtney and Pat (Luke Wilson) with the cosmic staff. Now, the easy assumption would be that the former would be the biggest threat but it appears Pat is like us. The bigger threat will always be the person you pi** off who also happens to be someone you share a roof with: they can get you in your sleep. So while we appreciate Courtney's "pull the bandaid off quickly approach," the look on Barbara's face in the following preview tells us that she's going to need a lot more backstory on this one.
