I absolutely love Stranger Things! This modern day thriller brings us back into the 1980’s with a brilliant cast and a chilling story line. It reminds me so much of movies or shows such as The Goonies, Super 8 or ET. I recently re-watched season one and plan on doing so again before season 2 begins which seems really far away, yet time doesn’t go by as slow as we all think. As I geek out for season two, I’ve got so many questions left unanswered.
The more I watch Stranger Things the more I dislike Nancy and Steve. I get it. They’re a teenage, love struck couple, yet they’re somewhat clueless at times. The monster may had taken Barb, yet it was truly Nancy’s decision which lead to her best friend’s demise. And then there is Steve the boy whom Nancy can’t seem to break up with although she had many reasons to do so. He literally boasts about getting all the pretty girls to go out with him while hanging out with the most troublesome couple at Hawkins High. Steve did redeem himself in the end, yet it left me feeling sorrow for Johnathan who truly cares about Nancy. He’s like the professor Snape of Stranger Things. Judging from the trailer for season two Nancy and Steve’s relationship is still off to a rocky start. At least Nancy can shoot a gun and kick butt.
Johnathan and his mom are now reunited with Will, yet Will is definitely still out of sorts, vomiting up slugs. I’m curious to know why the monster didn’t kill Will like it did to poor Barb. Some fans theories believe that the monster is the other people or clones sent into the other world. Perhaps Will is transforming into a monster right under our noses? In season 2 we’re expected to learn more about Lucas, Dustin and other characters backstories. Maybe Nancy and Mike’s little sister will get herself into the picture? Eleven took out the monster and vanished, yet she’s suppose to return later on in season 2. Is Sheriff Hopper, the rough, no none sense city cop living within a rural town, helping the bad guys or is Eleven’s papa and those a part of her creepy abduction actually the good guys? I know it might sound crazy, yet perhaps the group who was holding Eleven hostage isn’t actually evil, yet perhaps was corrupted over whatever they’re trying to do. I mean another world where creepy monsters live seemed like something the government should be, trying to stop. By the way did Sheriff Hopper and Joyce actually leave Barb’s body within the other world? If so, that is messed up.
There is a lot of questions which remain unanswered. Season 2 looks to be exciting and suspenseful, yet won’t premiere until October 27th this fall, so stay tuned Stranger Things fans. If you love Stranger Things let me know your conspiracy theories on what might really be going down on this epic Netflix series.
