There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the next episode of DC Universe’s Stargirl. “Shiv Part One” will be directed by superstar Lea Thompson (of Back to the Future fame), and will introduce Cindy Burman’s villainous alter ego Shiv. Meanwhile, Courtney Whitmore’s new Justice Society is still recovering from their fight with Sportsmaster and Tigress (in the show's most recent episode, “The Justice Society”), which might make them easy prey for the deadly Shiv.
If that wasn’t enough to get you psyched for the next episode, we have 2 exclusive images from “Shiv Part One.” Let’s take a look at the full photos...
This first image shows Cindy (Meg DeLacy) angrily glaring at something. Who has earned Cindy’s ire this week? In the recent episode “Wildcat” we saw how Cindy rules the school with an iron fist, and will ruin the life of anybody she sees as a threat. Whatever is going on in this picture, we have a feeling it won’t be pleasant for Cindy’s enemies.
In the above image, Rick Tyler (Cameron Gellman) stands before the remains of a battered tree. Is he using the tree to hone his Hourman powers? Is that an hourglass we see carved in the trunk's knot? Rick recently learned that the Injustice Society killed his parents (in the episode “Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite”), and he’s out for revenge. So we're guessing it won't be long before we see him spring into action once more.
