Az from YouTube channel HeelvsBabyface reviews DC Universe’s Stargirl, Episode 4 “Wildcat.”
He begins his review recapping Episode 3 saying, “Last week’s episode was a good episode. A very good episode for the most part that was undone substantially by the last portion. And I said that Stargirl needed to take a big L, a big loss. And she did. She took an even bigger one than I anticipated.”
He continued, “She was unable to prevent one of her school mates from being killed by Icicle. And it seemingly humbled her and broke her down a bit, thinking that oh no she isn’t all of that now that she’s got the Cosmic Staff.”
As for Episode 4, he states, “This episode is kind of infuriating. Not in a Batwoman way. Not in a way that you are kind of getting really, really mad. But there is a distinct lack of common sense. In this episode. There are some portions again that I really like.”
He continues, “And unfortunately, the subplot is way more interesting than the main plot. The subplot involves Pat and Patricia, the wife of The Magician and the son that was killed in the previous episode. And his little building, tinkering of his toys.”
Heel vs Babyface then adds, “And Courtney’s main story was trying to recruit a new Wildcat. So it starts off well. I mean a bit kind of stereotypical. We’ve got the kind of cutesy, wootsy music…”
