Before Stranger Things 2 drops on Netflix this October, we take a look at 23 of the strangest things that happened in the premiere season last summer.

At the end of this month, Stranger Things will drop nine new episodes and we will all return to the Upside Down. A lot of things have happened in the past year, both in terms of our relationship with ’80s TV nostalgia, and the time in Hawkins since Will returned home. While he continues to struggle with the trauma of his disappearance, the new IT movie changed the way I see kids and how they face their fears. Of course, Finn Wolfhard actually appears in both and the Duffer Brothers did want to direct that movie before they did Stranger Things. But I’m curious to see how I feel about Eleven and her friends after having met the Losers’ Club.

If you haven’t seen the trailer for the new season, you can check it out below:

But what’s really great about Stranger Things is that we spent a significant amount of time getting to know these characters. Even if you binge-watched all the way through, you still spent about eight hours in Hawkins, which is an additional six to Derry.

Over the course of eight hours, a lot of really crazy things happened, so ahead of the new season, we picked 23 of the craziest moments. These are the moments that scared us, made us think or just snuck up on us and made us reflect on how Stranger Things became such a hit show.
