While Stranger Things is exciting and action-packed, it did have its moments that pulled on everyone’s heartstrings. Here are five times we had our hearts broken in seasons 1 and 2. Spoilers ahead!

I know I can always rely on Stranger Things for an exciting show that’s very easy to binge-watch. That being said, there are certain scenes that never fail to make me cry, or at least a little emotional. With so many characters and situations going on, it’s easy to get attached and become invested in everyone’s stories and lives.

That’s what I think Stranger Things excels in. The show does an amazing job with character development and getting viewers attached to the characters in the stories and interested in what is happening to them. Even characters that we don’t get to know for very long, like Benny, Barb, and Bob, become important to us over the course of their time in Hawkins. It’s the connections we make with the characters that make these heartbreaking moments even more powerful, raw, and emotional.

Stranger Things seasons 1 and 2 definitely had those heartbreaking moments. With Will’s disappearance, Eleven trying to figure her life out, Hopper’s back story, and everything that happened along the way, there are plenty of times where I personally still get choked up over each time I re-watch the show. Judging from Netflix’s final trailer for season 3, there is bound to be plenty of laughter, excitement, new faces, and heartbreak.

With Stranger Things 3 on its way, let’s take a look back at five times Stranger Things broke our hearts in seasons 1 and 2.
