***Stranger Things Episode Rewatch!!!***
Join us as each week as we rewatch the episodes of Stranger things and discuss them here in the threads with everyone.
We are slowly counting down to the new season which will start this month

Chapter Three: Holly, Jolly
Episode Discussion
Air Date - July 15, 2016

Episode Description:
Barb wakes up in an empty pool near a dark creature. She tries to climb out in vain, but is dragged down. Joyce strings Christmas lights around her home, establishing communication with Will, who can turn them on and off. Hopper and his deputies research Dr. Martin Brenner, the laboratory, and a woman named Terry Ives who claimed her daughter was taken by scientists. El has a flashback in which Brenner, whom she calls "Papa", has her put in solitary confinement for refusing to telekinetically harm a cat. Nancy worries about Barb, who is missing. Steve and his friends discover Jonathan's photographs and destroy them along with his camera, but Nancy notices a photo of Barb before she disappeared and returns to Steve's house to search for her. Nancy finds Barb's car and sees the creature in the woods. Joyce establishes a code with Will using the lights, which he uses to tell her that he is alive but unsafe. He tells Joyce to run as a creature begins to climb through her wall. Will's body is discovered in the water at a quarry.

I so glad that Joyce found a way to comunicate with Will while he was trapped in the Upside down world. The scene where "Will´s" body appears was heartbreaking tho .

Darn I had a whole review typed out and FF ate it.

That opening sequence with Barb was so eerie and cool. Loved it.

I really enjoy watching Joyce try to connect with Will. When she did, that was great. Love the use of the old school christmas lights . When that creature came out of the wall, WTF! So creepy.

Steve was an ass this episode. Not saying goodbye to Nancy in the morning, letting his friend make all those jokes about their sex lives (did they have sex?) and then smashing Jonathan's phone? WTF. Not cool.

Will's body was apparently found. Seeing Mike's reaction was so sad. I really loved that scene though. I felt bad for Eleven when Mike got mad with her, but how does she know all this stuff and why isn't she talking more?

yeah that opening scene with barb in the pool was creepy

so el is left at the house by herself while the boys are at school and she is bored, so she starts looking around the house. she watches the tv and has flashbacks to the experiments with the coke can and dr brenner. and then she searches nancy's bedroom and looks at the pictures of nancy and barb. she looked sad looking at them.

i agree steve was an ass in this ep. he should have told his friends to shut up about making those jokes.

the little girl following the lights into the bedroom and seeing the hand come through the wall was creepy

steve breaking johnathon's camera was so messed up. yeah he is a creeper but he didnt need to break the camera. he went to far

dr brenner keeps making el do terrible things. and the more she uses her powers the weaker she becomes

this is when joyce goes into the crawl space and talks to "will" with the lights.
i forgot they had a dog

communications of the lights again telling her "right here" and then to "run" and then the monster coming out of the wall.

felt so bad for them when they find his body at the lake.
