71 Thoughts While Watching the Stranger Things 2 Season Finale

The second installment of Netflix’s popular, well-loved television series ‘Stranger Things’ dropped nearly two weeks ago, and it’s all the internet, and myself, has been able to talk about. The second season was dark, twisty, confusing, infuriating, wonderful, depressing, and weirdly satisfying. It made me fall even more in love (or out of love) with the characters and had me wishing I grew up in 1984 Hawkins, Indiana, demogorgons and all. The first eight episodes built up to the heart-pounding finale, where everything came together and fell apart. Here are 71 thoughts I had while watching this epic finale.

Beware: spoilers ahead!
