Stranger ThingsLucas radios Mike, Dustin and Eleven to warn them: the bad men are coming to the Wheeler house. The kids make a hasty escape, pursued at dangerous speeds by “Hawkins Power & Light” vans. Eleven used her powers to cut off the pursuit, and Lucas is finally convinced she is on their side. The kids go into hiding, while Jonathan and Nancy tell Hopper and Joyce about their encounter with the creature. Using Will’s two-way radio, Hopper locates and rescues the kids, but Eleven is no longer able to reach Will in the Upside Down…but she then reveals that she might be able to find them if she tries again in an isolation tank. Barb cannot be recovered, but Eleven does find Will Byers, trapped and on the verge of death. Hopper and Joyce decide to take the fight to the lab on their own.
