Season 2 of Netflix’s Stranger Things ended with a flurry of emotional events. Eleven unlocked the potential of her power by closing the Gate to the Upside Down, trapping the Mind Flayer, for now. But as we see in that final shot, the Mind Flayer is far from destroyed, and it has its sights set on Hawkins. Our protagonists, however, remain obliviously happy to this fact. Dustin and Steve have the ultimate bromance, Eleven and Mike have had their first kiss, as have Lucas and Max, and Will is actually having a normal go of things for once! Not to mention the fact that Eleven has officially been adopted by Hopper. Things are looking up for our favourite Hawkins residents, and our first look at Season 3 shows something incredibly exciting in their future: a mall!
We know that there is going to be at least a bit of a time jump in between Season 2 and Season 3. The main cast are teenagers now, after all, so it makes sense that the show will reflect that. And what do teens love to do? Go to the mall, of course! This may be a popular hangout spot for the kids this season, but knowing Hawkins, it’ll probably end up getting destroyed by the end of the season. Hey, it happens! In the meantime, at least, we get to watch Steve Harrington, babysitter extraordinaire, serve ice cream. Yes please!
