Part 5 of 6

Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt

Episode Synopsis:

Terror reigns in the food court when the Mind Flayer comes to collect. But down below, in the dark, the future of the world is at stake.

Strength from within.

Billy, strong both mentally and physically, takes on the Mind Flayer. He manages to 'wrestle' control of his mind away from the Flayer, and then use his physical strength to protect the kids.

How do you explain this, tho?

The question now, is, did Hopper actually die? What do you think? I think he's in the Upside Down. Looking back at the scene, just moments before the machine blows up there is no sign of Hopper. I think Hopper jumped through the gate to protect himself. When the machine blew up, the gate closed again. But like before, it's not close completely. This situation sets up what could potentially be a rescue mission in season 4.

In this emotional scene, Billy apologizes to Max. Is all forgiven? It's kind of hard not to feel some sympathy for Billy. Plus, he did save everyone. So there is that.

So Keith now works at the 'video store'? Remember, in season 2 he worked at the arcade - which is beside this new video store. And, I noticed something weird, too. Look at Keith's cheeks. Is this nothing to be concerned about, or has be been flayed?

“Stranger Things” & The Neverending Story Song

Dusty-Bun & Suzie-Poo Singalong. "Stranger Things 3" and "The NeverEnding Story" Song.

It's so cheesy. It's so damn annoying. Written by the man dubbed "The Father of Disco", Giorgio Moroder's 80s tune "The NeverEnding Story" is popular once again. We have the song lyrics and the clip from "Stranger Things 3, Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt". Try Millie Bobby Brown's #NeverendingChallenge.

In the episode, Dustin's girlfriend, 'Suzie-Poo' (Gabriella Pizzolo - that's her in the featured image), demands to 'hear it.' What it is, we don't really know. That is, until 'Dusty-Bun' starts to sing the - dare I say - 'classic' song from the 1984 fantasy movie, "The NeverEnding Story."

Gaten Matarazzo shows off his other talent - singing. As any "Stranger Things" fan will tell you, he can really sing. Gaten played Gavroche in Broadway's revival of Les Miserables. And, he also has a band called Work in Progress.

Poster from the 1984 movie starring Noah Hathaway & Barret Oliver.

As bothersome as the song is now (as an 80s child, I was once totally fine with it), Gaten does have a beautiful voice so one can't not listen to it. At least once.

Here Are the Lyrics to "The NeverEnding Story" Song...

Turn around
Look at what you see
In her face
The mirror of your dreams
Make believe I'm everywhere
Given in the light
Written on the pages
Is the answer to a never ending story
Ah

Reach the stars
Fly a fantasy
Dream a dream
And what you see will be
Rhymes that keep their secrets
Will unfold behind the clouds
And there upon a rainbow
Is the answer to a never ending story

Ah
Story
Ah

Show no fear
For she may fade away
In your hand
The birth of a new day
Rhymes that keep their secrets
Will unfold behind the clouds
And there upon a rainbow
Is the answer to a never ending story

Ah
Never ending story
Ah
Never ending story
Ah
Never ending story
Ah

Songwriters: Giorgio Moroder / Keith Forsey

Read Hopper’s Touching Speech for Mike & Eleven

Hoppers-Speech-to-Mike-and-Eleven

Read Hopper's Touching "Heart-to-Heart" Speech for Mike & Eleven.

If you haven't yet watched the entire third season of "Stranger Things", stop now! This article contains a spoiler without context - but a spoiler non-the-less! But, if you want a good, messy cry - read on. The following is a word-for-word transcript of Hopper's beautiful speech for Mike & Eleven.

"Stranger Things" stars: David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown and Winona Ryder. For a more extensive look at who's who, check out our series information page HERE.

Hopper-Eleven-Starcourt-Mall

Like Any Good Dad, Hopper Asked a Mother for Advice...

To set this up briefly, Hopper was trying to have a "heart-to-heart" with El and Mike (Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy?). The decision to have this talk came after 6-months of the cute couple spending all day everyday together. A lot of that together time in Eleven's room making out.

So, like any good (responsible) dad, Hopper went to a mother to ask advice. Joyce suggested having a "heart-to-heart" with the kids to set some boundaries. Hopper wrote a speech and prepared himself to give it.

But, Hopper tried to talk to the kids. He just couldn't get the words out. Here's what he wanted to say.

Grab Some Tissues, Here's Hopper’s Touching Speech for Mike & Eleven...

There's something I've been wanting to talk to you both about. I know this is a difficult conversation, but I care about you both very much. And I know that you care about each other very much. And that's why it's important that we set these boundaries moving forward, so we can build an environment where we all feel...comfortable...trusted...and open...to sharing our feelings.

Feelings. Feelings. Jesus...

The truth is, for so long, I'd forgotten what those even were. I've been stuck in one place, in a cave, you might say. A deep, dark cave. And then, I left some Eggos out in the woods, and you came into my life and for the first time in a long time, I started to feel things again. I started to feel happy.

But, lately, I guess I've been feeling distant from you. Like you're pulling away from me or something. I miss playing board games every night making triple-decker Eggo extravaganzas at sunrise, watching westerns together before we doze off.

But I know you're getting older...

Growing. Changing.

And I guess if I'm being really honest, that's what scares me. I don't want things to change. So, I think maybe that's why I came in here, to try to maybe stop that change. To turn back the clock. To make things go back to how they were.

But I know that's naive...

It's just not how life works. It's moving. Always moving, whether you like it or not. And, yeah, sometimes it's painful. Sometimes it's sad. And sometimes it's surprising. Happy.

So, you know what? Keep on growing up, kid. Don't let me stop you. Make mistakes, learn from 'em, and when life hurts you, because it will, remember the hurt. The hurt is good. It means you're out of that cave.

But, please, if you don't mind, for the sake of your poor old dad, keep the door open three inches.

Hopper-Eleven-Goodbye-Hug-Starcourt-Mall

Go ahead. Let it out. Have a good cry. Download a copy of the speech from us HERE. And thank the Duffer Brothers for the blubbering mess you're in now. They wrote it.
