Stranger Things Season 3 sees the Netflix series’ biggest-ever battle. As a matter of fact, it broke records after premiering on Netflix on July 4. In the first four days of release, the show was viewed by 40 million+ accounts.
Strangers Things season 3 ended with two characters dying in the final battle of Starcourt Mall. The season also featured a stinger scene that left things open-ended for another series.
The recent installment saw the cast battle it out against the spider monster the Mind Flayer had created out of the assembled goo of numerous humans and rats.
The final episode begins with Eleven pulling the goo out of her leg as 'Joyce' (Winona Ryder), 'Hopper' (David Harbour) and 'Murray' (Brett Gelman) show up at Starcourt Mall.
Meanwhile, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Erica (Priah Ferguson) head to their makeshift radio mast Cerebro to guide the adults into the Russian facility where they can close the gate, while Jonathan and Nancy escorted the other kids to safety.
At the Russian base, Hopper pins down the guards and steal their uniforms.
Nancy and Jonathan discovered the car did not work, just as Billy (Dacre Montgomery) is revving up ready to thrust them, so the kids rush back to the mall to avoid him.
In the mall, Eleven realizes her powers are not working after she got rid of the creature from the body, which is a huge problem as the monster begins to intrude through the mall roof.
At the vault, they cannot get to the laser as they are unaware of the Planck’s constant, the required code on the door.
This needs Dustin to contact 'Suzie' (Gabriella Pizzolo), his girlfriend everyone presumed was fake.
After persuading him to join her in a duet of ‘The Never-Ending Story,’ Suzie finally tells him the number.
Billy confronts Eleven and tries to kill her, but she manages to stop him by reminding him of his humanity via flashbacks of his mother. This helps him getting out of his possessed state just in time for him to sacrifice himself by standing in between the monster and Eleven.
Hopper also trades his life by allowing Joyce to turn the keys to close the gate while he is in the room with the laser.
Joyce hits the machine, blocking the gate and leaving the monster turned into goo.
The time then hops three months ahead. Joyce is getting ready to leave Hawkins with the rest of the Byers family and Eleven, who is now living with them after the demise of her foster-father Hopper, who has left a note to her and Mike.
Mike and Eleven confess their feelings to each other.
The episode then shows a post-credit scene set in a Russian base where we see some mysterious person called “The American” being taken to a Demogorgon.
