STRANGER THINGS EPISODE GUIDE




Stranger Things – Season 1, Episode 1 – Chapter One: The Vanishing of Will Byers
In November 1983, in a U.S. Department of Energy laboratory in the town of Hawkins, Indiana, a scientist is attacked by an unseen creature. While bicycling home from a Dungeons & Dragons session with his friends, 12-year-old Will Byers encounters the creature and vanishes. The next day, a young girl with a shaved head and wearing a hospital gown steals food from a local diner. The owner, Benny, takes pity on her and feeds her before calling social services. From a tattoo on her arm, he learns that her name is Eleven. A woman posing as a social worker arrives and kills Benny. Armed men search the diner for Eleven, but she escapes. Will’s mother Joyce believes she hears Will’s voice on a distorted phone call, but her phone short circuits. Will’s friends Lucas, Mike, and Dustin search for Will in the woods and find Eleven.

The boys bring Eleven to Mike’s house, where she sleeps in the basement. The next day, Mike nicknames her “El”. She says that “bad people” are looking for her and refuses to meet Mike’s parents. Scientists from the laboratory find a substance oozing from the walls of Joyce’s home. At Mike’s home, Eleven recognizes and points out Will in a photo. Dustin and Lucas want to inform Mike’s parents about Eleven, but she uses psychokinesis to stop them. While searching for Will, Mr. Clarke, the boys’ science teacher, discovers a scrap of a hospital gown outside the laboratory grounds. Nancy goes with her friend Barb to a party at her boyfriend Steve’s house. Will’s brother Jonathan investigates the woods where Will went missing. Hearing screaming, he runs to help but finds only Steve, Nancy, and their friends roughhousing around Steve’s swimming pool. He secretly photographs them. Barb, left alone by the poolside, vanishes. Joyce receives another call from Will, hears music from his room, and sees something coming through the wall.

Stranger Things – Season 1, Episode 3 – Chapter Three: Holly, Jolly
Barb wakes up in an empty and decaying pool. She screams for Nancy and attempts to climb out but is dragged down by something unseen. Joyce strings Christmas lights around her home to talk to Will, who can turn them on and off. Hawkins Lab director Dr. Martin Brenner allows Hopper to view the lab’s security camera footage. Hopper realizes it is fake. He and his deputies research Hawkins Lab, Brenner, and a woman named Terry Ives who claimed her daughter was taken by Brenner. Eleven has a flashback in which Brenner, whom she calls “Papa”, has her put in solitary confinement for refusing to telekinetically harm a cat. Nancy worries about Barb, who is missing. Steve and his friends discover Jonathan’s photographs. They destroy them and his camera. Nancy recovers a photo of Barb by the poolside and returns to Steve’s house to search for her. Nancy finds Barb’s car and sees the creature in the woods. Joyce establishes a code with Will using the lights, which he uses to tell her that he is alive but unsafe. He tells Joyce to run as a creature begins to climb through her wall. Will’s apparent body is discovered in the water at a quarry.

Stranger Things – Season 1, Episode 4 – Chapter Four: The Body
Eleven proves to the boys that Will is still alive by making contact through Mike’s walkie-talkie. Joyce goes to the morgue to view the body and refuses to believe it is Will. The boys give Eleven a makeover so they can sneak her into school. Joyce hears Will in her living room wall. Tearing away the wallpaper, she sees him behind a membrane. At school, Eleven uses Mr. Clarke’s ham radio to channel Will talking to his mother. Joyce demolishes the wall with an axe but reveals only her front porch. Nancy discovers a figure behind Barb in Jonathan’s photo. Jonathan realizes that the figure matches his mother’s description of the creature: a humanoid figure with long arms and no face. Nancy tells the police about her missing friend and subsequently admits to her mother that she slept with Steve. When she tells Steve about the police, she is irritated that he cares only about not getting in trouble with his father. Hopper confronts the state trooper who found Will’s body and beats him until he admits he was ordered to lie. Hopper goes to the morgue and finds that Will’s supposed body is a dummy. He breaks into Hawkins laboratory.

Stranger Things – Season 1, Episode 5 – Chapter Five: The Flea and the Acrobat
Will’s father Lonnie assures Joyce that her experiences are hallucinations. The boys conclude that Will is trapped in an alternative dimension which Eleven calls the Upside Down. Hopper discovers a portal in the basement of the lab. He is knocked out by the lab’s guards and wakes at home. He searches his house and finds a hidden microphone. After Will’s funeral, the boys ask Mr. Clarke about other dimensions. He tells them that a high-energy spacetime tear could create a passage between dimensions. The deputies inform Hopper that Barb’s car was found by the state; Hopper finds the state’s involvement suspicious. Positing that a tear in spacetime would disrupt Earth’s electromagnetic field, the boys follow their compasses. Eleven remembers being placed in a sensory-deprivation tank to telepathically eavesdrop on a man speaking Russian; while listening, she came across the creature. Scared of encountering the creature again, Eleven redirects the compasses. Lucas notices the distortion and confronts her. Mike defends her, he and Lucas fight, and Eleven telekinetically flings Lucas off Mike. While Dustin and Mike tend to the unconscious Lucas, Eleven disappears. In the woods, Nancy and Jonathan find a wounded deer. The creature drags the deer away, and Nancy and Jonathan follow the trail of blood. Nancy crawls through a passage to the Upside Down and discovers the creature feasting upon the deer. She snaps a twig and draws the creature’s attention.

To amplify Eleven’s powers, they break into the middle school and build a sensory-deprivation tank. Eleven finds Barb’s corpse with a slug-like creature crawling out of her mouth. With Joyce’s help, she finds Will alive, hiding in the Upside Down “Castle Byers”, his backyard fort. Hopper and Joyce break into Hawkins Laboratory but are apprehended by security guards.
