Certain that something tried to emerge from the wall of her home and attack her while she was communicating with her missing son, Joyce Byers is in disbelief when she is told that his body has been found. The town begins grieving for her, but Joyce refuses to believe that the body is Will’s, and is frustrated that no one believes her story about the attacker from the wall. Will’s friends also don’t believe that he’s dead, especially after Eleven demonstrates a way to hear him – but not respond to him – via radio. Nancy asks Jonathan Byers to develop new copies of the last photo he took of Nancy, only to see the faceless creature in the background: Joyce was right when she said she saw it come through her wall. Finally, Hopper’s suspicions lead him back to the morgue, to the body itself…only to find that Joyce was right about that too.
