A rotted pumpkin patch, a lesson on fear, and other hints to 'Stranger Things 2'
Stranger Things would like you to tune in to the news of Hawkins, Indiana.
Well, first, it’d like you to watch a commercial about the Palace Arcade, in which somebody under the name “MADMAX” has been winning several games. And then it’d like you to learn the merits of the VHS — “the future,” it touts — before it switches to footage of Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) watching footage of a boy dressed in Ghostbusters gear, presumably her son, calling out for her. And then there’s a breaking news report on the inexplicably rotten pumpkins in Hawkins, so many even Chief Hopper (David Harbour) has jumped on the case. Finally, Mr. Clarke (Randy Havens) offers a “Science Minute” on fear, and how all living things feel it. Including Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), whose wide-eyed shock closes the teaser.
What does it all mean? You’ll have to wait until Oct. 27, when Stranger Things 2 hits Netflix, to connect the dots. But maybe you’re not the one doing the connecting. Remember: Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) has a telekinetic ability that allows her to flip between channels. Could this be her investigating all the clues, maybe even from the Upside Down, as the tweet’s text hints?
Stranger Things 2 premieres Oct. 27 on Netflix.
