Season 2, Episode 5-9 – Can the shadow monster on “Stranger Things” be defeated without killing Will?
Season 2, Episodes 1-4 – Something evil spreads through Hawkins, and Will may be the key to saving everything on “Stranger Things”.
Stranger Things goes out on a high note as its first season draws to a close. Though the season finale is fulfilling and could stand on its own, the show leaves some doors open to continue the story.
Episodes five and six of Stranger Things deals with the nature of alternate universes, how the “rift” was created, and the continued search for Will. Stranger Things continues to wear its 80’s influences on its sleeves, but never gets bogged down by them.
Stranger Things kicks off its first four episodes showcasing its love for 80’s pop culture all wrapped up in a wonderful world of horror and mystery. This isn’t a mere homage to the past, this is great storytelling that harkens back to some of my favorite films from my childhood. The series takes its first bold steps out of the gate with a self-assurance that’s rare for a first season of a show.
