I love how the BTTF music in the theatre made a perfect moment of suspense as the camera pans along the row to reveal Steve and Robin missing.

Actually the BTTF track is played during the whole sequence - even during the cutaways to the supermarket. I loved that!

I found it super easy to binge this season over the weekend because I thought it was going to be ten episodes, for some reason. So once shit wrapped up in S8, I was surprised there was only about twenty minutes of denouement left in the season. 

 

The person mentioned at the very end could be one of three people, so it doesn't necessarily need to be the obvious one. 

 

I was shipping those two all season so when it was revealed, I didn't see it coming. 

 

Mike is more and more unlikeable as the show progresses.

We finished S3 this weekend, and it was much better than S2 (which almost had lost my spouse's interest).  Hopefully it keeps up the quality in the next season.

I though it was interesting how much, especially in the early part of the season, that

they talked about/showed Sean Astin's Bob.  Since he died offscreen last year, and they talked about him so much, I almost expected him to reappear. 

  I'm assuming the third person you're talking about is

Barb from season 1.

Neither did we - I think my wife even gasped.  I think the acting on that scene was very good from both of them - she was the season MVP (well, except for the special guest singer mid-episode in the finale).

Huh? Bob didn't didn't die offscreen, he very graphically got eaten by a demidog onscreen, and they even replayed the scene this year.  And wasn't he only in this season in the very first episode only? 

 

The only three options for the American the Russians can have at the end are Hopper, Matthew Modine's character from season 1, or a brand new character they'll invent between seasons. 

 

Barb is dead.

I was referring to Hopper, Matthew Modine's Dr Brenner, or Brett Gelman's Murray Bauman, who with his knowledge of the Russian language and the shit that went down in Hawkins, may have decided later to go looking for Hopper. For whatever reason, possibly grief. Definitely a long shot.

Nah that's a good call, it could be him too! 

 

Though I guess the actor who played Hopper recently revealed in an interview its him, unless he was just messing around.

I remembered Bob getting dragged offscreen - guess I misremembered!  They brought up Bob a bunch of times in the first few episodes of this season.  Winona Ryder flashing back to sitting on the couch with him, the flashback to his death, there was a drawing of him on the fridge. 

 

Barb was dragged into the Upside Down, but I don’t think we saw anything after that. I may be wrong about that, too, for all I know.  I don’t go back and rewatch these things.

 

Matthew Modine is a good guess.  I guess it could be Murray, captured offscreen between S3 and the end credits scene.  I’m more inclined to believe it’s a surprise returning character or an all new character, rather than one of the characters already in play

Mstrox you have a horrible memory when it comes to this show. They absolutely found her dead body, worms crawling through it and everything. And then they held a big funeral for her at the end of season 2.

 

She dead.

I can't even remember this. What a forgettable character!

She was Nancy's friend that was hanging out on the diving board instead of going into the party, who got abducted and take into the Upside Down and died there!
