Stranger Things – 209 – Chapter Nine: The Gate

We conclude our epic Stranger Things marathon — which really has been a month long obsession — with the spectacular, extremely fulfilling, finale of season two, “The Gate”.  Maybe you can say the climax is a rehash of last year.  But everything else works in just the way you’d hope and hits all the right emotional and character notes and feels so satisfying that it feels mean spirited to harp on a quibble here or there.  We feel that this was the perfect follow up the the original Stranger Things, and in the Duffer Bros. we trust.  Thanks for coming along on this ride with us.  Can’t wait until next time!
