Normally, this is where we would attempt some snarky, sarcastic line about how "it all comes down to this," but with The CW and DC Universe's Stargirl it actually applies in an unironic way. The first of the two-part season finale "Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E Part One" comes at a point when pretty much every member of Courtney's (Brec Bassinger) family has a target on their backs. That list includes Barbara (Amy Smart) after Jordan (Neil Jackson) learns that she's been investigating the original Starman's death. From there, Brainwave's (Christopher James Baker) increased power will allow him to move forward with Project: New America in 12 hours- and enslave half the country. But before any of that can happen, there's the matter of Courtney and Pat (Luke Wilson) that needs to be taken care of- and as you're about to see in the following preview images and promo, they're to be taken care of in the way Starman was:
