What I’m Watching: Stranger Things

Stranger Things: Season 2, Episode 4 “Chapter Four: Will the Wise” (B+)

Things are definitely not looking good for our friend Will as he’s communicating the needs of whatever that was that went inside of him in the upside down to his mother, who at least is doing a superb job of trying to tend to his needs. Suggesting that he draw instead of speak was a great idea, though I’m not sure what it is exactly that they’re going to learn. Eleven’s busy doing her own research with Hopper out of the house all day, and his attempt to ground her definitely didn’t go as planned. I’m also happy to report that Nancy was very useful for the first time in a while, as she and Jonathan got apprehended by Dr. Owens, who told them exactly what was going on, and managed to get away with a recording of him admitting to all of it. I’m not sure what they’re going to be able to accomplish in terms of getting the truth out, but maybe they can at least help Will out somehow in the process. As Dustin realizes that he’s gotten more than he bargained for with his new pet, the rest of the crew has done a good job alienating Max, whose brother seems especially concerned that she’s hanging out with the likes of Lucas. We still don’t know much about Billy, who seemed to suggest that Max isn’t her sister but has confirmed that they are family, and if he’s being obnoxious to Steve, you know that there has to be something wrong with him.
