Shining Girls Season 1 Episode 6 Recap: Kirby’s Striker Finally Has a Name and a Past
So far not much has been said about the Kirby striker in the series aside from a few details. The man, played by Jamie Bell, lives in a dilapidated house in Chicago. He has not yet been identified by the police or the newspaper.
Julia Madrigal (Karen Rodriguez), the woman who was found dead in the first episode on April 29, called him a military man. And, as viewers learn in “Bright,” she was right.
“Bright,” which began streaming on May 20 according to Apple TV +, opens with Kirby’s striker in Cantigny, France. He is 1918 and is a soldier in the First World War. Retiring from the battlefield due to gas, he meets Leo Jenkins (Christoper Denham). Leo helps him with his mask. Moments later, Kirby’s assailant takes a mask from a dying man.
Later, Leo tells him he knows what he’s done. He knows he has removed personal items from the soldiers who died in his company, including the mask. Viewers should recognize Leo as the man Kirby’s striker (his name has not yet been mentioned at this point in the episode) visits. He is the same man who gave Kirby and Dan (Wagner Moura) a mysterious videotape.
After the war, Kirby’s striker is in a club. The same one with which Kirby went with his mother. Except it’s 1920 and he’s there to see a childhood crush that he hasn’t replied to his letters.
Portrayed by Madeline Brewer of The Handmaid’s Tale, calls Kirby’s attacker by name, Harper. Together, they discover a mysterious clock that they are curious about in a woman’s house.
Harper discovers the house and time travel
In love with the watch, Harper uses violence to get the origins of the watch from the woman. He and Leo go home looking for valuables. It’s full of cute things, from a grandfather clock to a crystal chandelier. But things are slightly wrong. Leo discovers dollar bills that he doesn’t recognize.
Upstairs Harper discovers a 1973 almanac. Then he meets the man who lives there. Following a fight, Harper holds the man at gunpoint. The man tries to send Harper away with money and a watch. But Harper wants more. He wants to know about time travel. “You’ll see you can only go through here,” he says before running away. Harper and Leo follow him but the man is hit by a car in the street.
So instead of hanging around outside an employment agency looking for work, they have a place to stay. Plus, a briefcase full of cash. Harper brings Brewer’s character home and shows her why she is special. They walk through the door and suddenly find themselves in another era.
However, their outing doesn’t suit Leo well. He doesn’t like Harper telling someone else about the house and he tells him. Curiously, the time travel element doesn’t work for Leo.
Shining Girls Season 1 Episode 6 Recap: Harper goes to a club in the future where he meets Kirby
Harper, Brewer’s character and Leo go to the future for a fun night out. They go to a club, the same one that Brewer’s character performed in 1920. Kirby’s bartender. She starts a conversation. At one point, she and Brewer’s character make their way to the dance floor.
Back home, Harper films Brewer’s character as part of his play. In the process, she lets slip that it’s not the first time she has revisited this particular day. They come into discussion. She calls him small and Harper punches her in the face and drags her onto the bed.
It’s finally time for the club to close. Kirby serves Harper one last drink. This time, she asks about his earrings. He says she can guess where they come from if he can hold them back. She obliges and Harper tries to guess. Kirby says no, she didn’t get them from a guy on a first date. They come from the dollar store, she tells him.
Harper insists he’s right. Kirby jokingly says, “We’ll never know.” However, he doesn’t know he’s already told Brewer’s character that he actually made them on a first date on Harper’s last trip to date.
Meanwhile, at home, his bed glows with the rhodium-plated Brewer character used as make-up for his show.
