The Review

Wow, just wow what another intense episode, it was fantastic how wee watch some of the characters develop and change as it went on and how Joyce looks like she on the brink of losing her mind over her lost son and how she learning the lights are a form of way to contact him. We also see how the town of Hawkins still frantically looking for the missing boy. We also got to see important flashback that show parts of many characters past and experiences. It’s allowed you to get some real attachments to the characters and how the series makes you want to watch more and more.
