8. The Gate

Season 2, Episode 9

There are some questionable episodes in the second season of Stranger Things, but not enough for viewers to completely write-off the season. We mean it when we say this series is amazing, and this includes select episodes from season 2. As great and impactful as “The Mind Flayer” is, the following episode, “The Gate,” is just as exhilarating.

The majority of the season sees our heroes split up, they each have different issues and challenges to face on their own. Finally, though, they are reunited in the season 2 finale, “The Gate.” Seeing them all together to close out the season was a lot of fun, and what a finale it was!

7. The Monster

Season 1, Episode 6

So we have established how real things get in season 1, episode 4, “The Body,” but it’s episode 6, “The Monster,” that keeps the momentum going strong! A show of hands if you remember one of the most iconic (and meme-famous) lines in the Stranger Things series, “She’s our friend, and she’s crazy!”? You can thank “The Monster” for it!

There’s so much to love! From Dusting yelling that famous line after Eleven saves Mike’s life using her powers in front of bullies, to Eleven snagging all of the Eggos she can from the market. “The Monster” even gives us all our first look at the Upside Down. I believe it’s this episode that cements Stranger Things as one of the best shows of our time.
