One of the best Netflix’s gifts to humanity is none other than Stranger things, making our minds go ’upside-down’ and giving us those chills and some tears here and there. This American fiction drama series has heartbeats of sci-fi and a thriller backbone to it along with the best cast of Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery and Cara Buono giving us major best friend goals, front as well behind cameras. Thanks to you Duff Brothers.
The Series has three seasons all together yet and by each season it gets better and better. Let’s spill some tea over it and also ’spoiler alert’. The saga began in a fiction town Hawkins, when Will (Noah Schnapp) vanishes and his quite cool and ’too-brave-for- their- age’ friends start their own little hunt to find him along with his mother, Joyce, and town chief police, Jim Hopper.
In between they come across Eleven( Millie Bobby Brown) a young girl with pretty dope mind powers, she joins up the gang and later on, we discover Will has been seized by a nasty creature from another dimension, ’The Upside Down’ as they name it. Within a few episodes, we are blown away by the writing and the concept of the series and could not stop ourselves binge-watching.
However, we see Will rescued from the upside-down in the second season but there’s something wrong with him. He is been used by the Demogorgans (thanks to Dustin for the name) to spy as they plan to take the whole universe down. And now the 11-year-old squad with their little super-girl along with Joyce and Jim the policeman are on-duty to save mankind from these beasts.
Though the second season wasn’t much loved by the critics and viewers as it could not just harmonize with the over the top writing of season 1.
Furthermore, Hopper is the real hero in season 3. He is Joyce’s wannabe boyfriend and father-like figure for El. He does not relish El and Mike’s cute little love story amid also figuring out his feelings for Joyce. The atrocity and excitement increase when an undercover soviet laboratory does the most insane thing ever, opening the gates for Upside Down and making the Mind Flayer, the guest of honor.
And amongst this chaos and to rectify the mistake, Hopper sacrifices himself to close the gate and that’s when our hearts sank and we couldn’t help but weep. And his last farewell letter to El could make any stone heart sob. He proved that not all heroes wear capes.
The Conspiracy of Season4.
Well, because of coronavirus, the production of Stranger Things season 4 has currently curtailed and it’s not going to proceed any time soon. However, through sources, season 4 might be the ultimate season leading the end of this alibi. But the Duffers has not given any solid statements so there may be a lot more ’Stranger Things’ to infer.
Will Hopper remain a Hero?
But the most wonderful thing about Season 4 is the retrieval of the chief police a.k.a Hopper. The official teaser of Season 4 indisputably confirms it, giving us a big smile of hope. But has the traumatic incident followed by closing the gate might have changed Hopper in some possible way?
According to Duffers,
“he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human… and other.”
Maybe Hopper returns as a host to the mind-flayer and is influenced by them and he is no longer the person we knew, what if he comes as a disguised form to save El and Joyce and everyone else. Too many suspicions so little answers.
Mind-flayer is 001, just as Jane is Eleven?
Another conspiracy theory, we knew nothing about Eleven, other than her extreme powers and her number-influenced name. But what if the Mind-flayer is the first fail of El’s father’s experiment. And it escaped. Following the chain, Demogorgans are 002, Demodogs of season 2 is 003 and as the number increases all of them got closer and closer to humans.
As we go along this theory we might see a lot of new creatures in the coming seasons. This is just too much to take.
The Writers of the show spilled a mini spoiler on their Twitter Account revealing a picture of the cover page of the script and these sharp visions figured out the Title of the first episode “The Hellfire Club.”
In these boring days of quarantine, we can think of our own unique theories of the upcoming season and can make peace with it until Netflix drops the bomb.
