    The Duffers have stated that this is not meant to be a dark series and even though deaths happen in the context of the story they want it to be hopeful, not bleak.

    Maybe Steve takes all the kids on a well deserved vacation on the bus after the Vecna/Upside Down threat is quashed :)

    I agree. Especially when you consider their was some witchcraft scare in the 80's for real. Plus your talking about some kids that unlike our main characters have no experience with the upside down or government experiments.

    They like most of the town are out of the loop in terms of what is really going down. All they know is crazy scary stuff seems to keep happening all the time now. Not only did he loose Chrissy but also his other friend as well and he saw him floating in the sky.

    He's supposed to be the epitome of the Bumbling Dad from 80s movies and sitcoms. Of course, it is a little annoying how they try to explore those stereotypes with other characters like Steve (who was a deconstruction of the 80s Jock character) but after all these seasons some characters have stayed in their cliche.

    I think we're all more amused by how useless Ted is in every moment instead of breaking that stereotype.

    ...but perhaps it's all a long setup for a surprise hero moment in the final season!

    I was wondering whether I should just state the conclusion Random YouTube Guy #83954 (aka Dan Murrell, a well regarded film critic, box office reporter and former writer for Honest Trailers) came to. In hindsight, maybe I should have done so.

    For the record, Murrell checked his BluRay editions of seasons 1 & 2 and did a shot-by-shot comparison to the versions currently on Netflix and found no revisions whatsoever. He even checked for Will's birthday, something the Duffers said they'd definitely change, and found that so far, Netflix still has the original version up.

    I'm not trying to dunk on you, I'm well aware of the mass of grifters and rumor peddlers out in Social Media and your reaction is absolutely understandable, I'm just saying Dan Murrell isn't one of them. He's been debunking rumors like the one about Disney buying Captain Marvel tickets to boost box office numbers. And even when he makes mistakes on occasion, he goes out of his way to retract and correct himself. He's one YT guy that can be trusted.

    Fair enough. I'm just very allergic to YouTubers with things like these (and it's hard to keep up with the few who are legitimate and I wasn't familiar with his name), especially since it was already publicly addressed by the writers. Also, for some reason, when I previewed the video on my phone (where I also posted my comment), I thought I saw the video was 45 minutes long, so that set me off, too. :lol:
