The CW has released photos for "Brainwave Jr.", the upcoming tenth episode of DC's Stargirl's first season set to debut on DC Universe on Monday, July 20th and on The CW on Tuesday, July 21st. The episode is set to see Henry King Jr. (Jake Austin Walker) continue to hone his newly discovered powers but will also see him find out more about his family's past. It's information that will put the young man in the position of having to make a major choice -- and a difficult one at that.
As viewers have seen in recent episodes but especially in this week's "Shiv Part Two", Henry Jr.'s powers have finally manifested, though despite him being truly aware of them at this point, he's still coming to terms with how they work and what it all means. We also know from the preview for next week's "Brainwave" that Courtney/Stargirl (Brec Bassinger) wants to recruit Henry Jr. into the Justice Society of America, something that isn't necessarily going to sit well with her teammates -- particularly Yolanda/Wildcat (Yvette Monreal).
And Henry Jr. won't be the only person dealing with the past. According to the synopsis for "Brainwave Jr." Courtney's (Brec Bassinger) mom Barbara (Amy Smart) will be forced to revisit her own past as well while the young JSA will find themselves coming face to face with another member of the ISA.
