@Jacob Grimm facts, it’s the same “have your cake and eat it too” garbage. I’ve seen speculation that they shot the finale with multiple endings where each of the plot lines succeeded or failed, and went with whichever got the best reception. I was really hoping that they’d have the balls to kill off Steve or max, as much as that would have sucked. It would make the idea that Eleven “lost” more legit. In every respect besides the gate being open, she won, and until the very last scene the gate seems to be closed too.

But it might explain his weird behaviour and acting like a dick to Will, and sometimes others. It’s interesting even if it’s just a theory." This would be interesting and would retroactively fix his attitude in season 4. In regards to Johnathan... it's not like I hate him, but I believe they don't really know too well on what to do with him. His chemistry with Nancy was good and fun to watch. But season 4 was like a big meh. At least to me. Which sucks because the actor is good.

@Ricardo Fermé Jonathan is a good character and such a caring brother. I also think his relationship with Nancy in Seasons 1 and 2 was really good, and I usually find onscreen romances boring and cliche’-d. He and Mike just had a bad season… Mike’s role this season was pretty bland, and I found him unlikeable in Season 3 too. It’s sad because Mike’s character seemed pretty interesting in season 1. I dont even understand how they fucked him up, he gave “main character” vibes as the leader of the party. Will telling Mike he was the “heart” would have rung true in Season 1/2, but made me cringe in season 4. But the Duffer Brothers have said that they will return to Season 1 pairings in Season 5, which hopefully means Mike having more of a role now that everybody’s back in Hawkins. I really think they need to reduce Robin, Nancy and Steve’s screentime (i like them but its coming at the expense of other characters) and let the actual party and eleven shine. A lot of people think Mike is acting weird because of repressed feelings/confusion about his sexuality, which is a plausible theory even if some people reject it. But it might explain his weird behaviour and acting like a dick to Will, and sometimes others. It’s interesting even if it’s just a theory.

The biggest problem with this season is that the show is feeling formulaic. New likable character gets introduced that gets killed off by the end, and by the power of friendship eleven finds the motivation to stop the bad guy. That’s basically been the formula for the last 3 seasons of the show

The fact that he is STILL pining for Nancy goes against everything he has learned up until this point. He has learned to be honorable, kind and who he is outside of being the cool kid. He's also evolved in what he wants in life. And what do the Duffer brothers make him do? Come on to a woman in a relationship, one he hasn't spoken to in an entire season, and projects his dreams onto her, a person who has made it very clear she doesn't want to end up like her mom. If this was the real Steve, he would A. be over Nancy, and B. Never come onto her while she's in a relationship with someone else.

I don’t mind that actually, I think it’s fine that max was saved by el. The issue is that they did like 3 FAKE OUT DEATHS WITH HER. First she almost died but escapes from Vecna. Good scene very powerful. But one thing I noticed when rewatching s4, is that they basically do the same thing with max twice. She’s about to get the ol bone snap death but then sees her happy moments and survives. Anyways, she almost died in the prom scene but then escapes. Then Vecna gets her anyways and is about to kill her but no she is dropped before he can snap her jaw and splat her eyes. Then she dies anyways. Then El saves her. But no Max’s mind might be gone as shown in the scene where El couldn’t find her so she’s basically dead anyways. It was too many fake outs for me.

In addition to it giving Hopper more to work with as an individual character, it's also good to see what impact the existence of the Upside Down outside of Hawkins, and having another country, one so directly opposed to the US at the time, even, works wonders for really showing the scale of the problem. If the Soviet Union is also trying to understand and "contain" the Upside Down and its monsters, it makes it seem like a far larger threat than if it were just one small town in the vein of Nowheresville, USA being affected.

He's a good public speaker, he creates a welcoming work environment and even as he does increasingly heinous shit and plays into some of the uglier attitudes of the era, you still get the sense that he's legitimately focused on stopping whatever happened to Chrissy from going unchecked - he's just working with incomplete info and the grief probably isn't helping his level-headedness.

While like you I kinda wished they killed Hopper off in season 3. I disagree with the Russia Arc being boring. Unlike a show say “Obiwan” that makes it seem like breaking in and out of facilities are so easy. I like how with the Russia Arc, they had to carefully plan out the details, and go through twists and turns to escape, and I genuinely felt scared for Hopper while he was trying to escape. I also really enjoyed the Russian guard he be-friended as well, and that we got more details on Hoppers backstory. The sense of peril, and amount of obstacles from storyline in Russia made his reconciliation with Joyce and Eleven feel even more impactful since we know what he’s been through the whole season . You can have more than one storyline and still have a great overall plot as long as the storylines you’re telling are engaging, and both the Vecna and Russian storylines were just in different ways. Just because they don’t connect doesn’t take away whether or not the storyline was good.

They literally went right back to the facility with ease. Everything was so effortless and lacked any sense of tension. The upside down has been massively nerfed, there are no real stakes, characters are able to survive every situation they find themselves in. The Russian subplot is that effect x100000. If you’re going to justify numerous hours of pointless escape attempts and shallow characters with absolutely no tension (do you remember the friendly Russian guards name? Didn’t think so.) for one decent fight scene that conveniently spared Hopper and his friend, you need to value your time and attention more closely. Don’t just turn your brain off and accept what a show gives you. At least 50% of this season was inconsequential. At least.

The Russia subplot undoubtedly had some good moments, but it truly felt unnecessary and without tension. In my opinion, there was never any tension there because I never thought Hopper or Joyce wouldn't make it out of there alive, especially Hopper because if he was going to die, they would've killed him at the end of season 3. The battle with the demogorgon was cool and all, but was that worth using up like a third of the runtime? I don't think so. Also, it definitely was easy for Hopper to get out of the facility lol. He would've been out of Russia in the first couple of episodes if Yuri hadn't betrayed Enzo because somehow this malnourished police chief from Indiana with broken feet was able to defeat a Russian soldier in hand to hand combat.

@Augustas Valceris it's because s3 kind of FORCED the russians in the story just to have a third season and people didn't like it and they're back in it. I liked all of Murray and Joyce's scenes. Hopper and Enzo as soon as they were in the gulag had some great moments.

I feel like a lot of people agree that there were subplots that just weren’t that interesting that dragged on way too long. This season should have been normal length, and they should have cut so much out from the Eleven subplot, the Mike subplot, and the Russia subplot. On a re-watch of this season, I fell asleep multiple times during these subplot scenes. And I re-watched the first three seasons not one but TWICE in a week, and I never got bored or disinterested once. That kinda shows something about this season that they need to really improve on in the fifth/final season. They just tried to cram so much into one season and it didn’t really work for me.

I really don’t get the problems people state about the second and third season , becuase i found them to be easily the peak of this show , improoving upon the already great first season , but season 4 was the first that i feel lost the magic of this show, with lots of plotlines ( that all work like broken engines , sometimes working great , but often just barfing smoke), a bloated runtime ( and i really don’t get why , cause they don’t have enough stuff to do ), characters are often carried by the actors , instead of the action, and a villan that , due to how insanely derivative he was, really felt like a step down form the mine flayer

If I had to guess, it was at least in part due to scheduling conflicts. Notice that all the actors on the West Coast in the story, with the exception of Will and Murray, are the busiest and have other side projects. Basically everyone in Hawkins was probably much more available.

@Clarks Hat I disagree. While elevens plot line when isolated seems great as it was cool to see what happened beforehand with all the other super powered kids, its pretty flawed on a macroscopic scale. It seems forced to me, like they came up with that idea after the other seasons. It also makes me wonder why one took the actions that he did in the first 3 seasons. His motives are clear but his strategy and abilities seem sporadic. This makes for a lack of flow to the seasons which was probably caused by them only coming up with each season one at a time. My point is even though context to everything is nice, it would have been so much better if they had planned it out from the beginning.

My biggest problem with the show ever since it started is how fragmented it feels. You go from Chrissy getting murdered in the most terrible way by Vecna, to Eleven getting bullied in the skate park. It's tonal whiplash, pacing is a huge issue and it feels worse in this season because the episodes are 2 hours long.

I understand peoples complaints with the season and to an extent, I agree with the fact that the Russia subplot was the weakest piece. That being said I thought the season did a phenomenal job balancing it all out because I can very easily see this season being a hot mess given the amount of subplots there were and the sheer size of the cast at this point in time. I also think that the finale was one of the craziest season finales I've ever seen. It was such a perfect balance of hype and heartwrench . Everything from Eddies big Master of Puppets moment to his death., to Max's fate, to Els confrontation with Vecna was super well done. It probably gave me more emotions than any of the past season finales put together. Yeah, it feels a little contrived that Eddie had to die because he's a new character but I didn't really mind it this time around because the actor just kills it on every level. Every single actor does, now that I think about it. This season has the best performances out of any season by a country mile, specifically Lucas's reaction to Max in the finale. Overall, I really loved this season even though it was flawed. I hope they do this season justice by nailing the last season because everyone is back in Hawkins now so hopefully, the plot feels less scattered.

Such a good take on the subplots! I’ve been telling all my friends how wasted Mike, Will, and Jonathan were this season! Will gets some good character development, but that’s carried by Noah as he is definitely one of the better child actors! Even the Duffer Brothers know this I think, because they get virtually no screen time in the mid to late episodes! They just have too many characters than they know what to do with now! You were right about Eleven and Hopper’s subplots too! I kept finding myself wanting to get back to Hawkins, and the only time I didn’t feel like that was with the Vecna reveal!

Eddie’s death was sad, but so unnecessary. I’m sick of them bringing new characters into the show, just to kill them so that the main characters can die. Max should have been the one to die imagine the impact emotionally it would have been if they were brave enough to kill her off the show.

@Rodrigo Marks I can't lie I'm kind of sick of hearing this man Life is not happy, life is a pile of good things next to a pile of bad things... Not everything goes to plan... I think it's actually much less predictable and as a result creates much better storytelling when the writers don't stick the to the simple " Sacrificial death from one character, happy ending for another" formula... It gets so damn predictable.. A good example that argues for this point is the last of us 2. The writers killed a main character and that added a whole new layer into the story and allowed the story to properly developm Just because a character shouldn't die because "Oh but that would be sad" doesn't mean anything. In real life, none of these characters would get such honorary sendoffs... In real life, you don't die in someone's arms as the hero and spout some inspirational last words I'm not saying that there shouldn't be heroic moments because even when they are predictable, they can be very emotional (look to Eddie's death) I'm just saying the writers should be a bit more brave

Honestly, this season landed me squarely in the "Stranger Things should've ended after the first season" camp. The bloated, disconnected storylines played a part in that, but the straw that broke the camel's back were the Vecna retcons. Him being shoehorned into Eleven's backstory felt contrived, and I absolutely HATE the notion that he's the true ruler of the Upside Down, with the Mind Flayer being his literal shadow puppet. The show's lore has been ruined.

This season really got me back into the show, I was getting tired of it and it's been 3 years since the last season, and I remember why I loved it when it came out. If anything, I don't like how part 2 was done- I don't understand why a certain character died, it seems like they just didn't know how to write the witch hunt out of the story. The show has a habit of only killing new characters which makes everything feel less climactic, but I have a feeling season 5 isn't going to be pulling the same punches- I can't imagine they're going to be introducing many, if any, new characters. I'm excited to see what happens. It seems like it's already set up to succeed- only split into 2 groups, breaking the status quo, and keeping a villain that really worked.

Stranger Things 3, as it did to many, definitely soured my feelings on the show as a whole a bit. I think we can all agree that the season felt a little too silly, and most of the plot lines were really not good… either focusing on characters unnecessarily misunderstanding another to drive “tension”, uninteresting tweenage romance, blatant product placement and nostalgic pandering, or cartoon hijinxs with goofy Russian baddies and CGI flesh monsters who don’t have the same intimidation factor as a Demogorgon or Shadow Monster. This was padded together in place of the atmospheric, tense character drama that drew people to the show, and I could fully understand not liking the show at all after coming out of a season where nearly every character aside from Steve and Robin were wasted. However, while Stranger Things 4’s episodes in California - with “eleven getting bullied” and Mike, Will and Jonathan’s one-sided relationship dramas - definitely carried over and were consistent with the flaws that defined Season 3, I’m very happy that the Stranger Things I loved is back again. I don’t think the bully thing will irk as much people as it did me, however - Stranger Things has played out the middle/high school bully trope so much already with Troy in S1 and Billy in S2, so the Angela character just felt like a generic 80’s caricature, especially in comparison to Jason, that hateful teen who reflects a side of the 80’s Stranger Things hasn’t gone into much - The satanic panic, a conservative christian reaction to the events that go on in the show, and a very real image of a middle school bully who just kept making wrong but realistic conclusions and going down a wrong path. I didn’t have a problem with the Russia arc - to me, it was more gratifying having several separate plot lines that still end up connecting to a larger battle than it was bringing everyone in for a final or semifinal episode as they’ve done in Seasons 1, 2, and 3. Bringing back the mystery of Vecna and giving Max a fully-fleshed arc was very much appreciated, especially with how they weren’t afraid to be brutal with Vecna - the same goes for all of his scenes as Henry Creel/One. He wasn’t the deepest character, but added a personality to the Upside Down which creatures such as the unnamed big flesh mind flayer spider monster of Season 3 certainly lacked. While it’s pretty noticeable how Stranger Things refuses to kill off main characters and instead opts for killing likeable side characters, I appreciated that loss was felt at the end - especially since despite Eleven reviving Max’s body, her mind is still completely dead. Seasons 1 and 2 had a happy ending with some dark hints at a future to come, and season 3 was more meant to be bittersweet than anything, relying on a fake-out death like that of Season 1 to add a sad gloom. I really do appreciate how Max and Lucas get more character development than they ever have before in this season . Lucas in season one was just really a “grumpy/skeptic” trait which served as more of a plot convenience (or inconvenience?) than much substance until his inevitable “sorry I was mean” scene. I get it, there isn’t much you can do with kid actors, but it would’ve been nice to see more into why he thinks that way than just the simple “we shouldn’t trust her because of generic reason #3”. In Season 2 the main substance of the Lucas/Max dynamic was a love triangle without much of Max’s own character except from “girl who likes video games” or “why am I not your friend/why does mike hate me”. (Yeesh, Mike’s kinda been reduced a jackass character ever since Eleven disappeared that one time, huh?), and Season 3 there is really no plot for them apart from being just rough caricatures on teenager boy/girl and boring relationship drama. Max also loses the “tomboy” trait she was casted for with skateboarding, arcade games and love of slasher horror instead to show Eleven the life of mall-bred materialism, not that either dynamic was the most unique character thing in the world but largely Max was more of a vehicle for other people’s character conflicts than building a consistent character with real traits of her own. Max’s really only consistently interesting dynamic was that of her and Billy, but now that she grips with a different family dynamic and depressive symptoms she becomes far more in-depth, relatable, and overall just better as a character. (as far as I remember except for Billy’s death scene she never seemed to be actually that sad about Billy dying in that season. Which makes sense, him being abusive and the realistic feelings portrayed in this season cover that a lot better, but still, the “emotion” of that ending was really just reserved for Eleven only.) Her depression is relatable, so is her struggle dealing with the loss of someone you hoped to have a better relationship with that never came - (BoJack Horseman’s “Free Churro”, anyone?). Max’s Running Up That Hill scene is easily the best individual scene in the show, encapsulating perfectly HOW Stranger Things melds its darkest elements with its lightest in a magical drama experience. And to see her limbs snap one by one, to see her mind erased from her own body, despite how far she’s grown and how much she’s confronted to still face drastic pain and consequence, that is something which Stranger Things desperately could’ve used more of back in Seasons 2, 3, and even 1. Though there definitely could also be more of that in 4 also. Lucas dealing with the conflict of groups, wanting to find his own interests outside those of the group and to be respected rather than seen as someone to laugh at is a conflict not really seen in the group and is far different, more unique, and better to the “we’re not kids anymoreee we’re teens and want shitty relationship drama scenes!” shlock slapped at him in Season 3. We see him struggle in ways that are good and we also do see his different edge in the group once they do get back together - such as his realistic worries for Max’s safety and wanting her to open up to him. Of course, their relationship dynamic is also adorable - nothing better than seeing Max make him enthusiastically write on notecards. Little things like that and how supportive he’s tried to be for Max make it all the more heartbreaking when he cradles her broken, mindless and dying body. Of course, there are other highlights Steve, Dustin, and Robin had a great dynamic in S3, easily the highlight of that season, but now that they have a plot to work with, and a different set of characters like the finely-crafted Eddie to bounce off of the group really feels cohesive in a way that we haven’t really seen the Steve-kids dynamic in outside of four-person groups or a final episode. Seeing Nancy in a group of older teens isn’t really something explored during the “main events” or “mystery” of Stranger Things also; having her and Robin interact provides an especially fun dynamic. Once again, much like the bully subplots I mentioned earlier, this just makes the below average quality California plots stand out as even worse in comparison - though it was nice to see the Will/Mike dynamic explored in a medium other than “can we play d&d now?”. If that dynamic only existed for either S3 and S4 I wouldn’t have minded it as much as I minded it basically being step for step repeated in both- again, Mike’s been a jackass for a while too so I don’t blame S4 for his character’s problem, rather it’s just been continuous character development in a wrong direction if you will. I don’t consider Will’s plot to be malicious queerbait either, since in the literal first episode of the show when asked if Will is gay Joyce says it doesn’t matter and that he’s still her son either way, but it seems more that Will’s plot lines are just placed in the background so the writers can dedicate more runtime to other characters. Of course there’s only so much you can do in an episode… but you could do a lot more if you started with the military hunting El, fleshing out that general guy more, and removing the generic bully characters, making Jason’s uniqueness stand out even more, and then have Mike get there after El’s been taken and thus giving him and Will more room to grow. As for Will’s confused stoner brother, Jonathan’s plots never really started and never really were resolved, either; but I did enjoy Argyle’s presence as it was unique in comparison to what we usually see from the show. I think I enjoy the Russia plot more than Cosmonaut since it’s really different; it just happens to be a grisly prison escape drama with a good amount of twists and time spent on it that fits the vibe of the show and gives it a new feel - that trait also making Vecna and how he connects to Eleven, Nancy, Max, Eddie, and the rest of the Hawkins gang’s plots so creatively in different ways. This is NEW GROUND for the show to cover and that’s really why people have a generally much more positive reaction to this as compared to S2 or S3. All the good parts about Seasons 2 and 3 could be either seen in season 1 or fit better if those two seasons were condensed into one, or if each season has an anthology with a different cast. But really, this season has been the one to convince me that Stranger Things is better as a series and not an anthology show. There’s so much more I could say about this season, both positively with things like that house shootout and the overall editing and cinematography, and also expanding on my few negatives, like the plot armor problems, but once more I’m just happy that the show is back, and is different in ways that expand on the source instead of retreading on it. It took until episodes 3-4 to really get it there, but I missed this kind of Stranger Things.

It's a group of children fighting unspeakable evil, take some risks. They did lose overall but it felt like a huge buildup for a bigger loss. Felt like we'd lose Steve or Nancy. Noone displayed proper grief in the end, everyone just got ready for what's to come. Liked the season overall but stakes are quite low when every death-scare ends with fan-favorite characters surviving.

This season was a vast improvement over the previous two -- I still have some issues with the subplots and sidelining of certain characters that were present in 2 and 3 -- but this was for the most part a return to the excellent form that the show was missing since Season 1. I still have some things to be desired. The main thing is that I think Mike and Will have both gotten the short end of the stick in regards to character development.  Mike was the group's leader and really proactive in both looking for Will and trying to help Eleven integrate into the real world. Ever since, he hasn't really done anything. He's kinda regressed into the Finn of the show, where his entire character just revolves around his love interest/closest friend and not much else.  As for Will, I don't really see him as a character that's really done much the whole series. Season 1 he disappeared and needed to be rescued. Season 2 he's again a central focus but he was more so an object things happened to rather than a participant in the story. Season 3 he had a nice idea going for him with him being upset that his friends have all moved on to other things, and he never really got a chance to grow up normally. He had one great scene when he destroyed Fort Byers, but that was pretty much it. He got pushed aside and mainly served as the group's alarm system. Season 4 he also had a compelling idea introduced, with the subtexts of potentially being attracted to Mike and not being able to find the heart to admit it to him. Again, had one fantastic scene or two, but aside from that he once again didn't do much. It's a bit sad to me because Finn Wolfhard and Noah Schnapp are amazing actors, they just haven't had much to do for most of the show. I really hope that with this final season, they return Mike to acting more as a leader (as well as having character traits and motivations that aren't entirely surrounding Eleven the whole time). And I really think they ought to make Will the main character of Season 5. The show started with his disappearance, and I think it needs to end with him as well. I'd love for him to finally be a fully fleshed out character that has a fulfilling arc instead of someone who either things just happen to or is just there and nothing more.  I thought Season 4 was great regardless, but I think the Duffers have potential to make Season 5 even better. I really hope they stick the landing.

I really enjoyed this season, but I have two main problems with it. My first is that the episodes are way too long, an hour is fine, but a 2 hour finale is insane. And like in the video, it’s because they have to cram a bunch of plot lines into the story. While I did enjoy the Russian plotline, after thinking about it for a while, I think the best decision is that Hopper should have died in Season 3. Also, I just did not enjoy the Argyle, Mike, Johnathan, and Will plotline. I like Argyle, but I feel like the other 3 characters that are in there have nothing to do, so they forced them into a plotline. But honestly, these two plotlines both have the same problem. There’s too many characters, and no one is getting killed off. Every season, the cast builds and builds, without any characters dying at all. It seems like there is one death per season at most, sometimes 2. But none of those characters are the main characters, and they keep making new ones. This leaves a lot of characters having nothing to do, and ultimately getting sidelined. Mike used to kind of be the main character, but after watching 4 seasons of this show that I think that Eleven is the actual main character. The writers always seem to know what to do with her, and her story is always the most interesting, engaging, and the most focused on. While I am excited for season 5, and this show is honestly amazing, I can’t deny that because the show has gone on for this long, the cracks are starting to form and it’s starting to show a lot more than it did before. Overall, this is my second favorite season, because nothing will ever beat Season 1.

My issue with this season is that pretty much every character is useless. Like...I truly hated everything that Mike/Will/Argyle/Will's brother was doing. Couldn't do it. Vecna was a rad addition! Eleven annoyed me all season until Part 2. If the show was mostly just the kids in Hawkins, I would have been all about it! The whole theme of satanic panic really hit home with me! Shout out to the trailer park kids, Max and Eddie!! And the actor that played Eddie's uncle legitimately had me emotional.

Gotta say I wholly disagree with your thoughts on Vecna. I think the last thing the upside down needed was an angry human man in a Muppet costume to be behind it all, especially when they're retconning him to be the head honcho instead of the awesome Lovecraftian shadow intelligence that the mind flayer used to be. If Vecna was a one off for season 4, I'd be much more ok with him being a "five star general" for the Mind Flayer to set up the big threat for season 5. But I guess the mind flayer was just... A play doh cloud that Henry turned into a spider bc he likes spiders. They made the upside down so fuckin lame.

@Jesse Bruni Nah 001 works perfectly one dimensional villain can work even without symphatethic motivatons and be fully reailzed character. Joker from Dark Knight is one dimensional and he is one of the greatest villains in cinema. Some people does not want anything but watch the world burn. Henry Creel alias Vecna alias 001 works absolutely perfectly. Total nihilist who was born insane and was disgusted by human existence. I think thats where Stranger Things suprised me and I am glad taht unlike 99% of played out villians he did not turn evil because of traumatic childhood. And his monologues oh boy Campbel own it. Not to mention that manipulation of El was absolutely brilliant that change from friendly older brother to psychopath one of the best plot twist ever. He would have not worked as Yin to Els Yang. That was already Kali in season 2. I love how 001 is different from 008. And I love his pure evilness. Because its only type of person who could do with upside down what he does. And its not like he does not have some screwed up point. I would definetly agree sometimes that human are special kind of pests. And he works perfectly. Him then becoming Vecna to show up people their most disgusting desire and kill them in most gruesome way thats ties up nicely with his views of humanity. My favourite scene is when El try to apeal to his humanity in talk no jutsu style only for him tro brush it and saying that Brenner wasnt monster he was just ordinary human. And thats whats so scary about Henry. He is technically just another serial killer like person with mental ilness only this one happens to have superpowers. We had enough complicated characters in this show introducing somebody who was devil born incarnate thats nice change for the mix. And its not like characters like him cant work. Knives from Trigun for example is another similiar villain with very similiar motivation.

@lemonchief Brenner had amazing arc so I think they knew exactly what to do with him and they did it. Lovecraftian villains does not have personality and thats the problem. No personal connection and honestly no real conflict which is reason why most memorable villains in storytelling history worked. And Vecna can be still more like right hand men. As for rest of your comment sorry but thats lazy Jar Jar Abrams level of writing I am not going through bunch of mysteries only to not know nothing by the end because thats sO MuCh MoRe InTeReStInG. It tanked sequel trilogy, it tanked LOSt it tanked Game of Thrones and I swear it would tanked Stranger Things. Henry works perfectly as satysfing answer for lot of questions ties up several plotlines nicely and creates perfect emotional threat. And I will always prefer it compare to some left upon interpretation bs. Yeah it can work in some works but rarely works in mainstream media.

This season really got me back into the show, I was getting tired of it and it's been 3 years since the last season, and I remember why I loved it when it came out. If anything, I don't like how part 2 was done- I don't understand why a certain character died, it seems like they just didn't know how to write the witch hunt out of the story. The show has a habit of only killing new characters which makes everything feel less climactic, but I have a feeling season 5 isn't going to be pulling the same punches- I can't imagine they're going to be introducing many, if any, new characters. I'm excited to see what happens. It seems like it's already set up to succeed- only split into 2 groups, breaking the status quo, and keeping a villain that really worked.

I think my main flaw with the fourth season is that the characters are all scattered and their goals aren't all the same. While I liked Hopper and Joyce's reunion, the involvement of the Russians has no effect on the main plot with Vecna, so it creates this weird back and fourth and made Hopper's storyline just feel like the Jabba's Palace sequence from Star Wars RotJ

I absolutely loved this season! I agree though that the Russian subplot felt forced in. I wasn't a huge fan of it in Season 3, but I think I liked it more in this season. And I wasn't a big fan of Mike, WIll and Johnathan's subplot either. I feel like they were just sitting on the sidelines having way too many inspirational talks trying to make sure Will felt included while the others are trying to save Hawkins and risking their lives. It felt like they didn't know what to do with them. I'm all for helping someone feel included and normal, but when it's almost every scene and I'm able to predict, "Oh here's Will and Mike again, I bet they sit down and have yet another heart to heart" and I'm right each time, then something needs to change. At least Hopper had something to do to keep him busy and he was in a prison for crying out loud. Will and Mike quite literally sat this season out and that's not fair to the actors. That being said, I still thoroughly enjoyed this season!! Vecna is great and he has such a cool character design! (Fun fact, the guys who made his costume also made the Night King in Game of Thrones :o ) Watching that last episode was a roller coaster of suspense and I had a great time watching it!

But then I was watching volume 2, and I thought "Oh so they are gonna kill her now, makes sense". And then they show her legs breaking and I thought "Wow they really did it I think". But then eleven stops Vecna before she can kill him and I thought maybe they are saving the death for after they deal with Vecna. And then She dies and I shed a tear. But then they immediately ressurect her and killed the new "good" charecter who got killed by the same stupid bats whoch couldn't even properly wound Steve. 🥲

While this season was better than the last two, maybe even all the prior ones, it still has almost the same exact structure as the last two and I think it's pretty noticeable if you think about it.

A friend of mine said it would've been amazing if Hopper jumped through the rift at the end of S3 and he survived in the Upside Down, much like Will did in S1. Imagine Hopper gets captured in the Upside Down and comes back as a villain or villain's pawn in S4. The characters finding out about him in that state would've been brutal for them, especially if, in the finale, El had to step up and kill Hop to save Hawkins or something like that. Of course, this assumes a lot about things needing to be shifted and the entire Russia arc would've been scrapped, but I don't think that would've been a terrible thing honestly.

I thought the adults were going to say "You know, we saw a gate to the upsidedown. Also, Hopper got to Russia from America via the gate. We need to go to the gate to get back to Hawkins." That'd made a ton more sense, tbh. I kind of suspect the reason they didn't do that is the actor who plays Hopper was in Black Widow, so all his scenes were filmed largely at a different time than everyone else's.

She is inside Max’s mind. It seems totally believable to me that she could give her a “pace maker“ jolt. And it only worked cause she was already in her mind. She can’t just do that to anybody. I do agree about the Eddie Death. They were foreshadowing the entire season that Eddie runs away when he shouldn’t. But in his sacrificial scene the plan was always for him and Dustin to run away. They were a diversion. He has no idea if they need more time or not. He just kind of gives up his life because that is the story beat he is supposed to follow not because there is a good reason for him to.

The vast majority of the screen time was spent undoing the season three finale. 11 last her powers so she spends the season getting them back, Hopper's in the gulag so Joy has to get him out. The stuff actually in Hawkins was good but I was so bored by all the naval gazing that we know will just end with the status quo restored, Hopper back and 11 empowered. I was also pulling super hard for the writers to nut up and just kill one of the kids already, looked like they were gonna do it with Max even but they chickened out. Speaking of death, Eddy's sacrifice felt totally pointless, there was really no indication that the extra minute or so he bought the rest of the team made the difference for them. It ended up feeling hollow and manipulative to me. More than anything though I think they just shot themselves in the foot by having the story be so fragmented. There are legacy characters like Dustin or Jonathan that felt totally short changed, like they were just there while other characters were doing things. The Russian prison guard got me characterization this season than Steve.

Hopper subplot actually wasn't too bad, I was fairly invested in how he would get out of Russia although the ending did kind of suck because they basically forgot the whole "we need to get out of Russia" thing and just had them fight some monsters for very little reason. The Eleven subplot with her in the dunk tank literally could have been 1 episode like they should have just had that be one episode had the rest of her subplot actually be her and the California gang doing stuff. Mike, Will, Jonathan, and weed boi barely had anything to do this season and I think that whole half of the story would've been way better if they kept Eleven with her the entire time. Maybe it could've been like a road trip or something where they're trying to get back to Hawkins while dodging the military. Maybe cut the whole bunker thing entirely and instead Eleven is getting her powers back by doing wacky psychedelics in the back of the van which makes her vulnerable and shit while they try to protect her from the military. [THIS NEXT PART IS SPOILERS] Apart from that stuff though I really appreciate that this season actually did something different. After season 3 the show had kind of a predictable formula where each season is kind of it's own thing that returns to a status quo by the end and I really appreciate that this one ended with shit actually getting messed up. It actually has me excited for the next season cause shit is _messed up_ now and I want to see what they do about it.

I agree about them padding the run time, especially with the final two episodes. I really liked the last two episodes, but they truly, honestly had NO business being THAT long. I liked the full length film thing they went with but they just needed MORE interesting stuff happening. It felt like the entire episode 8 was almost nothing but people standing around plotting, arguing or dumping exposition, and half of the final episode was too. They also could have trimmed down run time by eliminating a LOT of the slow motion sequences. This show OVER uses slo-mo, like it's beyond excessive. Definitely the best season so far, but still some small areas to improve on for the final. I'm looking forward to it either way.
