The Monster

Stranger ThingsJonathan helps Nancy escape from the Upside Down with seconds to spare, and spends the night at her house watching over her. This doesn’t go unnoticed by her classmates, but when Jonathan tries to defend Nancy’s honor, he goes overboard, landing in juvenile detention after taking a swing at a police officer as the fight is broken up. Hopper and Joyce Byers visit a woman who Hopper believes may be Eleven’s mother, only to find that her mind is gone. As Lucas prepares to go it alone to find Will, Mike and Dustin argue over whether to salvage Mike’s friendship with Lucas. Someone instead comes looking for them, and they’re helpless without Eleven by their side.
