Cindy really has been super excited to start her super villain career hasn't she? Only a few days in and she is already giving her heroic nemesis "We’re not so different" speeches, which is right in the front of the bad guy handbook! Unfortunately her father is tired of her crap (although to be fair to Cindy, she actually didnt start this most recent fight) and grounded her, literally!
So who, or what, is Cindy's step mom? There is apparently no information about her, but she isnt a full on stepford wife considering she was clearly getting her flirt on with Pat, so what is her deal?
Henry Jr might not be the nicest kid, but I really do feel bad for him. Not only is his father in a coma, not only does he have new telekinetic powers coming in that he cant control and he doesent understand, but now he found out that his girlfriend is only dating him because his dad asked her dad to get her to monitor him. That is just a seriously shitty couple of days. It seems like he is being set up as maybe more of a possible ally to the JSA than an enemy, although if that does happen, he has a lot of apologizing to do to Yolanda. He does seem to really love his dad, as cold as he seemed towards him, and even when he knew that Cindy was only dating him on orders as part of some kind of plan, he seemed really concerned for her in the fight and when she was dragged into the gutter, so I dont know what will happen with him.
Pat wrecked his car to cover for Courtney, now that is love! Courtney can be so smart, but still has a whole lot more to learn, jumping right into another fight with Cindy while she was still recovering. I get that she threatened to hurt her friends, but at least wait until you take the band-aids off! Even the staff was trying to tell her to stand down! The whole scene with Pat and the staff "talking" was such a great example of taking a really weird concept and making it really work in context, as Pat and the staff both admit to being afraid for Courtney, even knowing that Courtney gonna Courtney.
The JSA did a pretty good job getting some info, and now they have an idea on who Dragon King actually is! They still have a long way to go though, they have to remember not to use real names while on mission! Rookie mistake! Poor Pat is now not just rangling one teen with super powered tech, but four. I like seeing Pat with the other JSA kids, he has such a great dad kind of vibe with all of them.
Really liked the scene with Courtney and Mike, I think that this is the first time they have called each other siblings. That was really sweet, and I continue to really like the family dynamics going on with them all. So now Pat wants to tell Barbara, which, yeah thats a good idea, she should really know about this, but will it actually happen? I hope it does, because I have seen plenty of shows where people dont share really freaking important information with their friends and family, usually out of some misguided desire to "protect" them, and it always causes more problems than it actually solves and blows up in everyone's faces, but its such a staple of the genre, I dont know if they will break the cliche here.
Icicle goes off on a business trip to get some work done AND murders a guy he holds responsible for his wife's death! You gotta multitask if you want to run a proper business as well as a supervillain group.
