Storyline

Eleven recalls how she escaped from the Upside Down and met Hopper. She asks him if she can dress like a ghost to go trick-or-treating but Hopper tells her that it would be too dangerous. He promises to bring back candy for her and watch a scary movie with Eleven. Hopper heads to investigate the mystery of the rotten pumpkins. Nancy wants to tell to Barb's parents that she is dead, but Steve warns that it would be a problem for her with the government. Dustin and Lucas invite Max to go treat-or-treating with them, Mike and Will who are dressed as the Ghostbusters. Nancy gets drunk at a Halloween party and tells Steve that she does not love him, and Jonathan drives her home. Will has another vision of a monster in the Upside Down. Eleven visits Mike via the Void but fails to contact with him. Dustin finds something strange in his trash bin. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Jim Hopper: Alright, I'm just going to be out here by myself eating all this candy. I'm gonna get fat. It's very unhealthy to leave me out here. I could have a heart attack or something. But... y'know... you do what you want.

A Captivating, Yet Lackluster Episode
1 November 2017 | by lbrosprodSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode quite a bit! The character development is still there. I love the further developments, as well as the world building. The only thing that I was a little off put by was that it went as slow as episode one (which was an episode I loved, by the way). It could have brought forth more plot building, but I did feel like everything that was shown will probably be necessary for the rest of the season. I've noticed that there's a lot more swearing, too. That didn't bother me too much, though.
