A week late but here you go (the first run down can be found here)
disclaimer: i own nothing, all shots and scenes depicted belong to Netflix
it should also be noted that these are just MY theories and opinions. I am by no means an expert, and you are absolutely entitled to your own thoughts and theories.
without further adieu here we go-
MY BABY IM SO READY FOR YOUR RETURN
as long as she has her eggos and is safe that’s all that matters :’)
i hope shes warm enough
that person is me running away from all the shit that’s about to hit the fan
so i’m assuming this season is really going to focus on the lines between dimensions blurring around Halloween thus why Will is struggling so hard rn yada yada yada nothing new
i want to know why this monster is just now on the radar you know? like while Will was in the Upside Down did he know about THIS thing or just the demagorgan
dang i guess trick or treat is ruined then?
yyyyyyiiiiiiIIIIIIIKKKKKKEEEEESSSS i CANT EVEN TELL WHERE ITS HEAD IS WTF IS THIS THING
??? where are they? and who is that random man with them? it kind of looks like a lab or some place underground. also i’m screaming bc
NOTE: their outfits here are different from the ones they’re wearing in the shot of them staring at the wall i love detective legends WHO GO OFF AND RESEARCH THE SUPERNATURAL by themselves how interesting
no really who is this guy and who is he keeping tabs on (see: the white note cards to the left)
WHO YOU GONNA CALL (i made this joke in my last rundown i’m sorry i’m so lame)
i think i mentioned this in the last run down, but even though i’m not a huge fan of Steve atm, i’m intrigued by this dynamic of him and the kids they’re going to be doing
does every small town in tv shows have a lookout point where the core group congregates to see shit go down?
this is such cool cinematography if they did, in fact, make one side of the road green and the other dying on purpose
i’m ALSO SO EXCITED TO SEE THIS FRIENDSHIP DYNAMIC THIS SEASON (just bc Will was MIA last season, we didn’t really get to see much about his relationship with the other three aside from how much they wanted him back, and towards the very end of the final episode)
ok even though this new monster is creepy as hell and i’m so upset will has to suffer again this season……….this kid is a hella talented artist way to go Will you’re doing great
omg please stop hurting mah boy…but also wtf why do I have to deal with another slow burn ship this season screw this
…….you……..you’re to blame
who are you and what are those glowing light cylinders doing in front of you
NOTE: i actually think this is Hop in the same scene as a clip you will see later in the trailer…you can look there to see my theory on why he is doing this stay tuned
pictures???? of what I can’t tell. why are they showing these to him while hes in the hospital? (peep the gown)
someone help this kid pls
are they at an ER or a police station?
big mood Joyce (ugh I hate how she has to suffer through this again just let the Byers live please)
can’t even tell whats going on here other then the fact that it looks like the upside down next slide
what are all these wires yikes
this doctor seems like (based on what I saw this trailer especially) he’s going to become a new reoccurring character…interesting…he better not back stab any of my children or i will stab him in his back
DONT BE SAD MIKE SHES ON HER WAY BACK TO YOU
oh my god a conversation between Will and Mike where Mike fills him in and tries to explain his feelings for Eleven HERE FOR IT PLEASE LORD
RUN MY CHILD FLEE I WOULD PROTECT YOU IF I COULD
I REALLY HOPE SHES OKAY OH LORD
MIND POWERS ARE BACK OH HELL YEAH
ummm…??????? first of all whose house is this, I dont reconize it and second of all…
why does she look so angry now i’m kind fo concerned WHOSE HOUSE IS THIS?
halloween dance maybe? i’m just confused as to why people are at the school in the middle of the night, i think this is mainly wishful reaching on my part
what’s interesting to me about this shot is not even so much the drawing (which i discussed in my last rundown), but the fact that Joyce has the phone next to her again? last season she had it in hopes of communicating with Will, which causes me to question who she is waiting for this time?
a portal i’m guessing?
NOTE: I think that Steve and Dustin are going to be the main friendship focus out of the kids and Steve. i think it’s going to be Will off having problems of his own, Mike with Eleven when she comes back sorting things out, and Max and Lucas…which i’m guessing is going to be the love interest for max they’ve been hinting at and if any of the crazies out there start trying to SHIP Dustin and Steve I will come for your throats
jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesus please mAKE THIS STOP
IT LOOKS LIKE LITERALLY ALL OF THEM ARE CONGREGATED WHY AM I LIVING FOR THIS
nope ignore, next
IGNOREING THE FACT THAT THIS LOOKS LIKE A PARALLEL TO HOP WHEN HE LOST HIS DAUGHTER. NEXT
how many dang trips is Hop taking to the Upside down this season?
edit: see further down for the theory
see: my last statement
who are you odd doctor man?
well he kind of looks as out of the loop as the rest of us so i think we can trust him…for now…
*heavy labored breathing*
excuse me while i scream until my lungs concave (OK BUT THE BED ROOM SHARING TROUPE PARALLEL??? CANT I JUST CATCH MY BREATH FOR FIVE SECONDS BEFORE BEING ATTACKED AGAIN?? okay but it kind of looks like theyre in a hotel???? why????????????)
Holes (2003) that should be Hopper behind her
this scene was in the Comicon trailer and it doesn’t concern me any less now
me too steve…me too…
…will the real Karate Kid please stand up
actually, the more i think about it, the more i’m thinking Hop making all these weird trips to the Upside Down has to do with that deal he made with the scientists last season…like his end of the bargain was basically doing all the dangerous dirty work everyone else is too afraid to do
that or he’s being sent to locate Eleven but I’m choosing to ignore this theory
YIKES (Part 18937487002)
lowkey think this is going to be that weird pet thing Dustin eventually gets but watch me be wrong
classic Samwise Gamgee
nothing but respect for my sons (if their love triangle causes any sort of animosity between these two this season I’m burning something)
i reeeeeeeeeeaaaaallllllyyyyyyyyy want to like Max this season and I hope shes more like cool and reserved and not annoyingly angsty and rude like so many tv franchises like to paint preteen girls. but Stranger Things has not failed me yet so I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt
interesting that Will and Mike aren’t there doing whatever the heck they’re doing, but Steve and Max are? idk if it means anything, it’s just interesting. makes me wonder if Will and Mike are going to be off figuring out whats happening to Will, while these four focus on something else? but what?
Dustin is ready to throw down (I think that this has to do with his “pet” they’ve been teasing this season. like idk maybe he’s trying to tame it or something)
everyone in this show is about to be in the best damn shape of their lives with all the running they seem to be doing my god
oh my god??? so it looks like they’re sterilizing him for something, but Hop looks like he’s in pain so I’m completely against whatever the hell is going on in this scene
NOTE: this is probably in reference to him paying off his end of the bargain with the lab
can this monster just calm tf down and give these mf kids a chance to take a BREAT?????????????? LEAVE
this whole trailer consisted of horrified looks, people in pain, and running
so maybe Hop is being used to test weapons for the labroatory on the monsters in the Upside Down? and that was the deal he made?
the amount of panic and seeming lack of experience these people working at the lab have expressed on multiple occasions makes me doubt their credibility as scientists to begin with
she looks terrified and sweaty this is not a good combination (also did you know that Nancy Wheeler could run me over with an 18 wheeler and I would say “thank you”?)
that looks like Nancy’s gun so looks like the core group is getting ready to rumble
can’t tell if he looks suspicious, seductive, confused, or constipated in this shot so MOVING ON
??????????????? who tf are you? (based on the pictures on the walls, he’s in the Byers house?)
anD HES PUNCHING JONATHAN BYERS ABORT ABORT THIS JUST TOOK A TURN I THINK TF NOT YOU TRICK ASS BITCH
I don’t think I’ve ever hated an idea more than the idea of my bois going into the upside down themselves no thanks
does anyone know this guys name? i can’t keep calling him Samwise
wiLLIAM PLEASE NO
a raid of sorts? but on what because this doesn’t look like the upside down so…the real world?
again with these inexperienced scientists working on what is apparently a very important government project. this staff need to be reevaluated
*Teenager by My Chemical Romance plays in the distance*
(the relevance behind this shot makes me curious, because from what i can tell which obviously isn’t a lot with the mask and such, its not anyone we know yet…and it’s just a bunch of teenagers sooooo)
i think it should be noted that Dustin is wearing the same outfit and headset from that scene from the previous trailer where he’s screaming “ABORT ABORT” so my guess is we are just going to have one episode where the kids venture into the Upside Down for a mission of their own (in which they ALL better return safely or I will be making some calls)
i’m confused now, because previous to this, it looked like Dustin was outside with the headset kind of running point, but here it looks like he’s in there with them??? idek anymore
i’m so sosososoososososososo really for this show down scene
this pretty much confirms for me my theory on how the love triangle pans out (Lucas and Max end up together)
*sigh* at this point, i’m officially worried for every single one of the main characters
LOOKS LIKE JOHNNYBOY HIT BACK(look at that bloody nose) OOooOOooOOOOOoO (also i can’t wait to hate you whoever you are we’re just going to call you Crusty for now)
hmmm….this is the same van that those teenagers in masks were getting out of a few scenes back…interesting
WHO ARE ALL THESE NEW PEOPLE
she literally looks so angry this trailer oh man…though this one she also looks more…upset maybe?
correct me if i’m wrong but is that not the woman who we’re pretty sure is Eleven’s mom? the distortion around the camera also kind of makes it look like a vision/ flashback, so this could possibly be something Eleven is seeing and explain why she’s so upset?
this looks like the same scene where she’s yelling and looking pretty mad. also noted: this is the same outfit she’s wearing when she appears in that unknown door way looking so angry
NOTE: i’m also confused about her hair? like yes, i know they let Millie grow her hair out this season, but in a recently released short clip where Eleven busts out of the wall into the middle school, her hair is still buzzed. so does this suggest a time jump? if so, how much time has passed? does this also suggest that she came through the upside down a while back and has been living on her own long enough for her hair to get THAT long? which would mean she didn’t go to Mike or the others for help, she just has been roaming around doing whatever it is they’ll have her doing…
solidifies my belief that Dustin and Steve will be the main friendship they will be pushing this season
NOTE: ….??? why does Dustin have flowers? i lowkey think Dustin is going to awkwardly go to Steve as like a big brother figure to give him advice on his crush on Max
oh okay wow…so this is actually right before all the shit with the kids going into the upside down all happens (Dustin’s shirt and headset)
all of these scenes with the same outfits makes me wonder how long of a time period this season spans over…honestly my guess would be like three days
lol why does Steve seem so confused by the contents of his own trunk
NOTE: whoa whoa whoa this just went from day to night…so the whole “do you still have the bat” scene is different from Steve actually removing the bat from his car
why does Steve have the bat to begin with? I thought it was Jonathan’s?
i’m betting said shit just officially went down
aaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I’M REALLY NOT READY GUYS THIS SEASON IS GOING TO SHAKE US ALL TO OUR CORES
QUESTION: is there anything you guys want me to do when the episodes are released? maybe like an episode rundown w/ my thoughts and opinions? idek leave a comment if you reblog and have an idea
AND THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH FOR 3K YOU ALL ROCK MY SOCKS OFF LOVE YOU ALL
So. Am I finally going to get that elusive Danger!Era dark hair on Kookie again? Because the Good Lord knows I’ve been waiting long enough for it. Even longer than I’ve been waiting for Hixtape. Where’s my prayer circle…
I can’t stop thinking about the fact that Guanlin told Wooseok he saw on youtube that Seonho came to visit Pentagon’s mv shoot.
That can mean one of two things:
1. Guanlin genuinely watches everything that Pentagon release and follows them all the time
2. Someone (Seonho?) sent him the video (to make him jealous?)
Either way, it’s so cute and like. I still can’t get over the fact that there’s even a tinier baby fanboying over my baby. Like. If you only know Wooseok through Guanlin, he really looks cool and it’s understandable why Guanlin admires him so much. But if, like me, you know Wooseok since Pentagon Maker days… he’s such a big dorky puppy with really dumb meme-ish humor (”I have a Pen~ I have a Tagon~ UHHHHHHH PENTAGONNNNNN”) so it’s really funny to see someone who genuinely sees him as a role model.
i love idris elba as a host lmao during the first five minutes he screamed over maradona and ronaldo (the original ronaldo don’t get it twisted) and he took selfies with neymar messi and criss cross he knows whats up
