Now at the police station and there talking and plotting out all the points and that when he realises it all links back to Hawkins Lab and he sets off. Now El is laying in bed staring at the tv before she tries to communicate and then stops she begins to walk around the home. This triggers a flashback to when she first brought to the house that Hopper now lives in with her.
Now we see Steve and Billy playing basket ball while Bill speaking to him and trips him up before Nancy interrupted and they were talking about the party and Steve asks if she loves him and she doesn’t say anything. Then we see them all meet Dart and they were all confused by his existence they begin to read up on him. Will begins to have a flashback and then he has one in school. Bob surprises Joyce at work with food and talks to her about them and how he so happy to be with her.

Nancy and Johnathan are seen talking to each other about the party and Nancy is second guessing what she said. Now we see El wondering around in the woods before she comes up to a park and she asks the woman where to school was. Joyce is now home fiddling with the recorder and tries to watch what Will had recorded from the night of Trick or Treating and she finds the a weird looking thing in the sky that appeared on the tape she noticed it was similar to one of Will drawings.
We see the boys almost showing Mr Clark Dart when Mike stops them and they talk about stuff at the VH club and dart breaks out legs and then takes off into the school. Then we see Nancy talking to Barb mother on the phone to lore the bad men out and now we the head of Hawkins lab looking at the pumpkin patch when we see hopper get a call in about a girl and that girl being El. She is now at the school she goes inside to look for Mike.
We watch Mike go into the gym then the changing rooms where him and Max scare the life out of each other. Max then confronts him about Mike feeling and hatred towards her. El looks into the gym and causes Max to fall off her skateboard.
