Just when we thought that we have gotten over the amount of grief which the final season of Game thrones gave us, we were hit by another roller coaster of emotions in the form of the tv show “Stranger Things”
Disclaimer:Heavy Spoilers Ahead!
The season starts after a brief period of time where the season 2 left,it starts with some Russians who inventing a way to visit the upside down world which is in form of a big machine
The crew as we know (Mike,El,Dustin,Lucas,Will), have all grown up. Dustin being away from the crew for most of the period of time. We see Mike & El are dating each other which is probably the couple which most of have shipped so far!
Steve the character whom we have all come to love throughout the progress of the series is currently working in an ice cream shop which was in the Mall which had recently opened up in Hawkins. Little do our characters know that this mall is being used as a front for the research which is being done in order to open a doorway between upside down & the real world.
Now the main focus of this season is on the Mind Flayer as we know that it was previously the main villain of season 2 but after El defeated it & sealed off the doorway,but after the opening of the breach the body which had stuck itself to Will in season 2 comes back to consciousness after being connected to its mind and is back again.
It starts by controlling all the rats in Hawkins & then it starts to gain control of all the citizens living in Hawkins as it did with Will in season 2,it starts with first taking control of Billy & then it uses him to extend it’s reach.
After a brief showdown with fate Dustin,Steve & Robin discover that the mall was being used to carry the research of opening the door to upside down,& they relay that information to Hopper,Joyce & Owen who use that information to infiltrate the base of the mall & hereby succeeding in closing the breach
Now here comes main climax it shows that Hopper was standing near the machine when it exploded after Joyce turned it off, but did he really die? That’s the main question!
The season ends with El moving out with Will’s family after they say their final goodbyes,and the show ends with post-credit scene where Russians have a Demogorgan & they are researching on it hereby giving a hint that season 4 might be on it’s way.
Besides the emotions which the show provides it follow the same pattern of the plot which it has been following since the last 2 seasons but it’s pretty good since it maintains the constant merit of a good script with a good acting cast.So If I had to rate season 3 it would be 4/5!
