Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t watched Stranger Things 2 yet and want to avoid learning anything about the show you probably would have been safer traveling to the Upside Down rather than clicking this post.

Millions of us spent this past weekend doing the exact same thing–binging all nine episodes of Stranger Things 2 on Netflix. The second season of the hit horror series gave the kids of Hawkins more terrifying monsters from the Upside Down to defeat, like a mind-flaying Shadow Monster, a baby Demogorgon with a taste for nougat, a whole pack of killer “demodogs,” and a classic ’80s villain with great hair and anger issues. And they defeated them with the help of some great new characters. Even poor forgotten Barb finally got the justice she deserved, even if the real story about her death was too crazy to be true.

TMW you realise you haven’t left the house for 2 days b/c

And after spending so much time in the town of Hawkins once more, the internet got to work. With some great new pairings–like Hopper and Eleven, Lucas and Max, Steve and Dustin, Steve and all the kids, Steve and literally everyone watching–along with poor Bob (don’t move to that town if your name starts and ends with a “B,” you will die), and some very questionable decisions by people who should know better, there was plenty of material.

So here are some of the best jokes, insights, and memes we saw from Stranger Things 2.

Stranger Things 2 is better than S1 because of her

In case you’re being driven mad by who Eleven resembles in Season 2 of Stranger Things, it’s Elizabeth Perkins, circa 1986. You’re welcome.

Finished Stranger Things 2! So many feeeeeelings. Steve Harrington’s “I’m a cool Mom” arc is my favorite thing.

When you shipped Nancy/Jonathan & Joyce/Hopper but then season 2 happens and Steve and Bob end up being really awesome

Hayley@hayhayallday

even w all the monsters the most unrealistic thing about stranger things 2 is that Nancy doesn’t love Steve

Between Twin Peaks, Blade Runner, and Stranger Things, it’s a great time for a fan of 80’s synth soundtracks to be alive.

Hopper is raising Eleven like a daughter.

Oh, and if you thought we forgot about Hopper’s dancing, don’t worry, there’s an entire Twitter account dedicated to it.

We’re going to need that updated every day until we get season 3.
