The fight for Clarke's mind rages on as she searches for mysterious cult leader Gabriel with Josephine still locked inside her brain, battling for dominance.

Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein
HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix
Stranger Things star David Harbour stars in this, well, strange new mockumentary, just 20 minutes long, where he finds lost footage from his father's televised stage play Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein. In this over-the-top, melodramatic tale, Harbour, playing an exaggerated version of himself, explores his family's acting lineage and the legacy of his father, who Harbour also portrays. There are "more twists than Stranger Things," as a quote in the trailer attributed to Harbour says. —Gerrad Hall
