Will and Hopper are rushed to Hawkins National Labs. While Hopper is sprayed down for toxic chemicals, Will screams as if he’s on fire. A later experiment shows that Will has a link to the Upside Down: the attempts to beat the Upside Down back into submission with fire causes Will unimaginable pain. The unlikely duo of Steve Harrington and Dustin go looking for D’Artagnan, who couldn’t even be contained in Dustin’s family’s storm shelter. They’re later joined by Max and Lucas, who has promised that this will prove to Max that everything he has told her about Hawkins is real. Steve risks his own skin to invite D’Artagnan to dinner, but the creature suddenly bolts away. Armed soldiers descend into the Upside Down, but can they do anything to it or its inhabitants without
killing Will Byers?
