Uhm, there's something IN your leg!

Picking up where we left off, Eleven's injury is festering. Probably because there is a piece of the Mind Flayer in her. Eww. Jonathan gets a knife and does his best to sterilize it before 'digging in'.

With the arrival of Joyce, Hopper and Murray, a plan is hatched. Dustin and Erica's knowledge of the ventilation system inside the Russian bunker is a big help.

We're not through yet.

The end of the world is near. And we have more pictures to show you. Another five pages worth. Stick around, the action is heating up!

Looking for more pictures? No problem!

We also have a lot of photos from "Stranger Things" seasons 1 and 2.

Just one more thing...

We source series' screengrabs ourselves. And our on-set production stills come directly from the distributor. The result, then, is high-quality photos for you. If you're going to use them on your website, please give credit where credit is due.

Did you know...

Clicking a photo loads it in a gallery so you don't have to scroll. But doing that means you'll miss out on my witty and (sometimes) factual commentary. Oh, and if you're on a mobile device, you can swipe-up through the pictures without tapping. And if you want a closer look, tap the photo and zoom in. Easy peasy.

How to download...

If you're on a desktop or laptop, right-click on the image or picture you want to save. Then click 'Open image in new tab'. Then, go to that tab. Right-click on the image, and save it to your computer. If you're on a mobile device, lightly press down on the image and wait. In 1 or 2 seconds your device will give you several options from which to choose. Tap 'Save Image' and follow the instructions given by your device.

Before I forget...

This is a small, but dedicated site which explores binge-worthy TV and movies. I don't stream, but I do offer loads of information, reviews, pictures and scripts. Best of all, it's free! I try to add more and more each week. Thanks for being a part of our community of binge-watchers.

To the Wheeler Wagon!

The plan to escape using the Wheeler Wagon is no longer an option. Billy removed a part from the engine and now it won't start. And with Billy watching them from a distance, the crew has no other option but to go back inside Starcourt.
