Stargirl Season 1 Preview: Courtney's JSA Recruitment Drive Continues

Heading into this week's episode of DC Universe and The CW's Stargirl, Courtney's (Brec Bassinger) new Justice Society has a new "plus-one" in the form of Yolanda Montez (Yvette Monreal) aka Wildcat, who has her own heartbreaking backstory for joining the team. With this week's "Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite," it's not too much of a spoiler to say that the team's destined to grow by at least two more (savvy prediction there). Then there's Pat (Luke Wilson) aka S.T.R.I.P.E., who's splitting his time between worrying about keeping Courtney alive and the growing conspiracies beginning to cast their shadows across Blue Valley. Just ask the late Zarick's (Joe Knezevich) widow Denise (Cynthia Evans). Well, you could if she was in any condition to talk but it looks like that might not be happening any time soon. As you're about to see in the following preview images, promo, and episode overview, Courtney and Pat's respective missions might end up leading them to the same deadly answers:
