Stargirl Episode 10 delivered some major reveals and a devastating ending
Caution: There are major spoilers from Stargirl Season 1, Episode 10.
Stargirl Season 1, Episode 10 certainly felt like a midseason finale or even a season finale. We got some major reveals and a devastating ending.
The biggest question for many is whether this is the end of a character we’ve barely got to know. Is Henry Jr. really dead?
Brainwave delivers some shocking truths about his wife
We picked up the episode with Henry awake from his coma. However, his memories of the last 10 years have gone. The last memories Henry has is of Henry Jr.’s sixth birthday. He also remembers his wife’s death.
If you thought Jordan was involved in Mary’s death, you’d be somewhat right. Jordan managed to set up the trap to kill the JSA. However, Brainwave shares that Mary’s brother was Starman, and his death was something she’d never got over.
At the end of the episode, Brainwave tells his son that he had to make a choice. It was either the ISA or Mary, so he chose the ISA and killed his own wife. Now he realized he would have to do the same with Henry Jr.
Henry Jr. makes the ultimate sacrifice
After sneaking into the Dragon King’s lair for the Cosmic Staff, the new JSA and Henry Jr. (who was looking for a presumed kidnapped Brainwave) found themselves trapped. While the new JSA got out, Henry Jr. was left on the opposite side of a set of bars.
The JSA couldn’t do anything to help Henry Jr., no matter how much they tried to get the bars back open to get Jr. out. Brainwave was too strong.
Just before the ceiling crashed down on Henry Jr., he apologized once more to Yolanda for everything he did to her. Then he told Courtney not to give up hope on people, that there are good people out there.
It felt like just as we were getting a sort of mini redemption arc (because, let’s face it, he doesn’t need a redemption arc like other bad guys on this show), Henry Jr. was taken from us.

Is Henry Jr. dead on Stargirl?
It certainly looks like Henry Jr. has died. There aren’t many people who can survive the crash of rubble on them. Just as Cersei and Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones about that!
However, this is Stargirl, and Henry Jr. was a major focus for the last few episodes. There was a chance to have a telepath on the JSA, and a powerful telepath at that. Meanwhile, Brainwave wanted to train his son and the Dragon King certainly seemed like he wanted Brainwave Jr. on the ISA.
It seems like a waste to kill off Henry Jr. right now. I have a feeling that he’s going to be back. The question is whether he’ll remember the sacrifice he made or if he’ll be back to struggling with reading thoughts.
