Stranger Things Season 3 (May contain spoilers)

I think he’s in the Russian prison. At the end, they said “Not the American” and went to the other cell. I think he’s alive and in the first cell. Since we know there is a season 4 and they definitely killed off Billy, I just don’t think they would kill him off too as he’s a major character

In season 2 when Eleven and 008 (this sounds James Bond like) went to kill the fat guy, he said Pappa was still alive. The only way for Hopper to have "lived" was to go upside-down through to portal. The American's came in the room at the end and there doesn't seem to be anyway the Russian's could have somehow gotten him out before then. He certainly wasn't a pile of goo either. The other thing that makes me thing Hopper lived is that they were playing Heroes by Bowie and IIRC that is what they played when Elven disappeared at the end of season 1. Going through the portal is the only thing that makes sense (which means this will definitely not be the case)

It's says MAY contain spoilers, you didn't say anything about it before though. What's next, you going to tell us all that the Titanic sinks at the end of the movie?

 

I read something earlier in the day where they said he died (or may have died) at the end of this season. The bigger spoiler here was someone saying they are definitely doing a season 4? I didn't know they confirmed it yet, guess Amazon Prime decided not to cancel it........

I got a spoiler for you......tomorrow morning I am going to fart.

Finished Episode 5 last night

 

Only thing I found strange was the little girl had no problem opening the elevator door from the inside after she got in through the vent. But when they were all inside, all of the sudden the buttons stopped working and they couldn't do anything but go down.

 

Also after the elevator was emptied, why wouldn't they just stay inside until it went back up to the surface where they could go get help easier then being trapped down in the Russians lab area?

 

You would also think a secret Russian military lab under a US Mall might have just a little bit of security, like the occasional camera, in the hallways or in areas that would spot 4 kids waking around?

I'm at the same point in the show.  The Russian thing in general seems like an odd fit for this show.  I know these kids have been through a lot, but trying to break into a room guarded by foreign military types armed with massive guns seems a bit over the top for them, especially since all of this is brand new to two of them. 

 

Speaking of the Russians, I like the terminator vibe from the guy chasing Hopper.

He does resemble the terminator.......

 

It was funny that this door is guarded during the day and when deliveries are made, but not at night when most break in might normally occur. They could save some money on armed guards by just installing a couple cameras instead.

 

On a side note, at the Calgary Stampede this year they have recreated the Hawkins fair that you can go to, and there's a Baskin Robbins in Toronto that has been converted into the Ice Cream shop in the mall where they are serving the USS Butterscotch.

 

I don't think the show strives to make every detail realistic, but also in the 80's, wouldn't they have been refering to these guys as Soviets, not Russians? Just a minor thing although it might mix up or confuse the younger generation watching it....

I was really starting to like him too.

He just wanted to enjoy Woody Woodpecker and Looney Tunes cartoons while drinking slurpees..........

Listen again.  It was Peter Gabriel singing it.  Peter Gabriel was the singer in Yes so that means Yes Hopper is dead.  Or maybe Yes he is alive.

No. Most people called them Russians. Calling USSR people Soviets didn’t catch on with the masses.

I worry that the scope of this show has become too big now.  We now have Russia and a good number of main characters living off in a completely different are (did they say where?).  This show is at its best when it's a bunch of crazy things happening in a small rural town.  Even with an upside down wormhole connecting them to Russia, there's no way anyone should be setting foot  in the USSR on this show.

I always remember hearing Soviets when refering to them, thought it became Russians when the Union Split.

According my source on American/Soviet relations in the 1980s, they were called Russians

I would expect that another season would have everyone back together in Hawkins. They didn't move too far away, at the end Mike talks about them getting back together for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I would expect anything happening in Russia would maybe trigger things happening in Hawkins. I saw some theory's that say Hopper might still be alive (he said he is contracted for 4 seasons) but he isn't the American. The American could be Elevens Dad, or even one of the 10 other kids who were at one time in the lab. That might explain the tangent in season 2 to meet Eight. After last season many questioned why they introduced Billy (and Max) and it led to Billy being the one to get possessed first to build the army. Maybe introducing Eight was leading up to her or other one of the the others to being used by the Russians to open the portal on their side.

As a kid growing up in Canada, we didn't worry too much about them.......

I really thought that big Russian soldier that kept fighting Hopper was going to turn out to be a robot.

Especially when at the very start he was able to just hold up that other man by the throat until he choked to death.

The same exact move that the flayed pulled off a few times.  Hmmm.....

That is an interesting thought. We see that the Russians are experimenting with creatures from the upside down so maybe there is some cross DNA stuff to make some kind of "super soldier"?

I was not enthused about S3 after watching S2. I thought it had run its course.  Turns out I liked S3 a lot .  They did a nice job.  I'd be ok with S4 but that would have to be it.  

 

The part I found odd about the end wasn't the "American" part.  They could go several ways with that and it might not even be written yet.  The thing I find strange is that it was heavily implied that the Russians hadn't penetrated the upside down at all and had to move to Hawkins to do so yet they somehow had retrieved and controlled one of the monsters.  That needs some splainin.

That clip was in the future.

 

My theory: 

Hopper gets stuck in the upside down. He eventually finds his way out in Russia and a monster chases him through the portal. The Russians capture them both.
