6 STRANGER THINGS Details You Missed in the Final Trailer

The final trailer for Stranger Things season 2 is here, and it’s bringing the Upside Down to Earth. 1984 looks like it’s going to be an even crazier year within the world of the show, and that’s just scratching the surface. Today’s Nerdist News is turning things up to Eleven as we break down the six things you may have missed in the final trailer!

There are potential spoilers ahead for Stranger Things season 2. It’s all from the trailer, but it’s easier to overlook these clues when they go by so quickly. Consider this your last warning to stay out of Hawkins until the 27th!

Join host, and the Dig Dug champion of Hawkins, Jessica Chobot, as she dives into the return of Eleven, which evokes a similar scene from the pilot episode. When the Demogorgon took Will, it also unlocked a door telekinetically. One of the most popular theories is that the Demogorgon was actually a manifestation of Eleven’s shattered psyche. And there may be something to that, if this shot is any indication.

Do you want justice for Barb? It looks like Brett Gelman’s character may be more deeply involved with that storyline than we previously suspected. We’ve been told that Gelman is playing Murray Bauman, a former journalist turned conspiracy theorist. But given the level of detail in Murray’s Barb board, we’re starting to wonder if he’s actually Barb’s father as well.

Next up are two important details about this year’s big bad. For the first time, the Shadow Monster has been shown outside of the Upside Down or Will’s visions. And it actually looks like it is made of shadows. A scene with Paul Raiser’s Owens suggests that not only is Hawkins Laboratory aware of the Shadow Monster, they’ve also managed to obtain some samples of it.

It looks like season is going to be a big one for Sheriff Hopper, as we see him taking a blowtorch to some of the Upside Down materials last seen in the Hawkins Lab. He’s also wearing scrubs like the ones Joyce Byers and Bob Newby (Sean Astin) are seen in, which suggests that all three are together as they try to sneak Will out of the hospital.

Finally, Will’s drawings have been among the first clues going back to the Super Bowl trailer for season 2. But what we assumed to be a picture of the Shadow Monster appears to be something else entirely. Instead, we think it’s a map, and that may explain how Mike, Will, Dustin, and Lucas will eventually make their way to the Upside Down, as seen late in the trailer.
