Best season 1 moments

There are so many great moments and plot twists in season 1, here are some of my favorites:

  • “Mornings are for coffee and contemplation.” I can relate, Hopper.
  • Hopper finds out the body in the lake isn’t Will, it’s a fake.
  • Eleven saves Mike from falling off the cliff, admits she opened the gate and believes she’s the monster. But Mike is quick to reassure her she’s not. I just wanted to join in on that group hug.
  • Eleven makes the van fly up as they’re running away from Papa. Seriously, one of the coolest shots from the whole show.
  • “Friends don’t lie.”
  • Hopper and Joyce save Will from the Upside Down. This was such a good idea. The flashbacks to Hopper’s daughter dying were so heartbreaking in this moment.
  • Jonathan, Nancy and Steve fight the Demogorgon. Serious props to the director. This whole setup and the way it was shot and edited was spectacular.
  • Eleven defeats the Demogorgon. I still have no words.
  • The season ends with two awesome cliffhangers – Eleven is out there and the Upside Down still hasn’t completely left Will alone.
