Yolanda quit the JSA in episode 7

Yolanda made the difficult decision to leave the JSA and Wildcat behind in the previous episode, “Summer School: Chapter Seven.”

The hero known as Wildcat was plagued by hallucinations of Brainwave and Henry, Jr. for the entire hour. Yolanda’s guilt over Brainwave’s death had finally caught up with her. It was unclear whether Eclipso was the one controlling Yolanda’s thoughts. Alternatively, Brainwave could still be alive and seeking vengeance for his own death.

Yolanda sought assistance from her priest and fellow JSA members, but neither had the answer she needed. Her guilt eventually overtook her. It led her to believe that she was the only member of the JSA capable of killing. Yolanda decided to cut ties with the JSA and hang up her claws because the burden was too much for her to bear. Eclipso, in his child form, lingered outside Beth’s house near the end of the hour. In Stаrgirl Seаson 2 Episode 8, the story continued. Whаt hаppened in ‘Stаrgirl’ Seаson 2 Episode 8?
