Back to Hawkins in Stranger Things 2

By Cher Cabula-Mendoza - Friday, October 27, 2017

Last night, I got to attend the exclusive launch of Stranger Things 2 with the press, fellow bloggers and fans. We were invited to watch the first episode of the much awaited second season ahead of everyone else and we couldn’t be more excited. So there we were, back to Hawkins and back once again with the beloved cast of Stranger Things.
Okay, I really won’t spoil the episode for you guys so there’s no need to fret. I’ll try to be as discreet as possible. Since a lot of people liked how much they got reminded of the 80’s the first time Stranger Things came out, there’s more 80’s music this time around, adding more to the retro vibe which really sets the mood for this really good episode.


For the first 10 minutes, there’s a good bit of action sequence that led to the big reveal of a possible new ally or foe for our favorite group of friends. They are, by the way, all grown up. Adorable Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo), has a new set of pearly whites and doesn’t miss a bit pointing it out. Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin) and Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard) are still geeking out over games. Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) on the other hand is fighting the after effects of him being in the Upside Down for quite a while.

If you’re wondering about Joyce Byers aka Will’s mom (Winona Ryder), well she now has a new love and it’s in the personality of the lovable Sam from LOTR – Sean Astin. There are new characters introduced and we don't know just how big of a part they'll be playing yet.

Okay, that’s about all that needs to be said for Episode One. The end of the episode will leave you asking a whole set of new questions, making you want to watch episode two right away. Well, I guess that’s the whole point of a Netflix subscription huh?

This is shaping up to be a more exciting and action-packed season for Hawkins. I think we’ll learn more about the conspiracy behind the kids experimented on like Eleven. We’ll also be probably be learning more about the Upside Down too.

Oh and Barb!!! I wonder if they’ll bring her back? I have this crazy notion that she’s not really dead and she might have escaped the Upside Down, one way or the other.

For those with Netflix subscriptions, I’m betting that tonight will be binge-watching night. Cheers!
