SPOILERS ALERT. STOP READING NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!
I MEAN IT… LAST CHANCE!
DON’T COME CRYING TO ME IF YOU READ THIS AND THE ENTIRE SEASON GETS RUINED FOR YOU.
Okay. Oh. My. God. I can’t be the only one who was utterly terrified at some parts? I’m not a fan of horror (or anything remotely jumpy) but that really was pushing the limits of what I can cope with!
So let’s start off with the top 5 utterly freaky moments eh?!
1. Nancy’s bosses
Aside from the fact they were horrible misogynistic A-Holes, they were also freaky as f**k. The scene where both Nancy and Jonathan were being chased by them down the deserted hospital corridor was actually making me scream! Especially the blonde dude, I dunno he just felt quite ‘Here’s Jonny!’ to me.
2. Russian Arnold Schwarzenegger
You know the one. Pretty silent dude with the massive gun. Yep. He full on freaked me out big time!
He just doesn’t die and I don’t trust overly quiet people in films/TV series – they always seem a bit soulless (think Sir Gregor GoT).
Especially when he was after Alexai – I was just starting to love him.
3. Mrs Driscoll and the rats
Rat explosion, wtf. Then when she’s lying in bed and starts going black in front of Nancy. Oh hell no. I’m aware I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to these things but that was a big NUH UH.
4. El and her gammy leg
WITH THE THING INSIDE AND JONATHAN PUTTING HIS HAND INSIDE – No, just no. I couldn’t look. That’s probably one of the goriest things I’ve ever seen on TV!
5. Billy in the Sauna
As much as Mike annoys me, he did have a genuinely good idea. Put Billy in the Sauna and sweat it out. It makes sense, that’s how they got it out of Will previously so why not try it with Billy? I think the kids really did not know how much stronger the Demogorgan had got and then cue Billy, the Flayed Minion leader!
He was so rabid and the way he tricked Max really got to me! It was clear he had been fully taken over at that point because as much of a ‘dick head’ Billy is, we saw his soft side in the previous season. He treated Max like absolute arse paper but I don’t think he’d have seen her hurt as we clearly saw at the end.
So those are my top 5 freaky moments, if you found any other scenes freaky, let me know! My memory isn’t always great and I’m pretty sure I’ve forgotten something.
Onto my top 5 heartwarming moments. It wouldn’t be stranger things without a little ‘aww’
1. The reference to Bob
Bob is literally the Samwise Gamgee of stranger things. I love that they saw him as a hero and he really wasn’t forgotten.
2. Dustin and Suzy
I never doubted him, ever! I’m sad that Steve didn’t believe him because they have their cute/weird little bromance and Dustin really looks up to him. However, she saves the day after a rendition of the Never Ending Story which made me full on laugh out loud.
3. Back to the Future
Okay, not so much heartwarming but when they walked into the cinema and it was playing – I cheered. I was born in the wrong era 100%. An absolutely fantastic reference, I’m just sad that when Dustin went to find a car, he didn’t somehow manage to find the DoLorean. That would have made the entire series for me!
4. Hoppers speech to El
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t cry a little. He called himself her Dad (cry emoji). I did wonder how he managed to write all that as though he knew he was going to die though. That was definitely a letter from beyond the grave speech not a letter to stop sucking face with Mike!
5. Robin and Steve
Firstly, I just knew she wasn’t straight. I had a feeling from the start! I felt sorry for Steve though, he found the perfect girl and in a way she sort of lead him to believe there was some previous interest. She just didn’t specify it was the girl she was after not Steve.
He took it well though and I love that they’ve stayed friends. I also love that Steve is becoming a nerd, he’s too good for Nancy now. P.s the fact he wore his Scoops Ahoy uniform the entire time just made me love him a little more. He could not have been less cool.
I also love that they were drugged and got a bit high and weird and giggly together. I think it brought them closer and I’m looking forwards to seeing how their relationship as friends blossoms!
After all the craziness of this season, I have some serious unanswered questions. Give me your thoughts below!
1. Is Hopper really dead?
2. What’s happening with El and her powers?
3. Has Joyce adopted El? Will she go to school now that they’ve moved somewhere different?
4. Has Hopper turned into that new demohuman that we saw in the end?
5. The Russian man mentioned an American in the cell, is that Hopper?
6. Basically… Hopper, where are you?
Tell me your theories/thoughts/opinions, ask me your questions! Let’s talk about it. I’m really loving this season more than the others which surprised me as to begin with I was like NOPE. I couldn’t accept El and Mike making out all the time. She’s too naive for that but I’m glad it stopped as from there and onwards it got GOOD.
