Stranger Things hints at Hawkins’ cover-up inside out in season 4
The latest Stranger Things season 4 trailer, “Creel House,” appears to imply that Upside Down will begin to take more control of Hawkins.
In the show’s latest teaser, a cryptic clue implies that the Upside Down will soon consume more Hawkins in Strange things season 4. Since Strange things debuted in 2016, one of the series’ central locations has remained a mystery to fans and characters alike. Despite the pilot episode giving viewers their first glimpse of Upside Down, three seasons later, it’s still unclear exactly what Eldritch’s location is, how it works, and what is preventing it from spreading around the world. normal.
The Upside Down was apparently discovered by Hawkins Lab agents during their Season 1 experiments, freeing the Demogorgon and setting the events of the show in motion. However, the exact nature of Upside Down is relegated to fan theories and educated guesses, as the characters on the show remain largely mystified by how the Alternate Dimension works. Essentially a grimy mirror world, the Upside Down features nearly every location, item, and plant found in its real-world counterpart, but is home to dozens of Demogorgons rather than humans.
Fortunately for the characters of Strange things, debating the exact nature of the Upside Down hasn’t been a major concern since Eleven managed to shut the door to the dimension in the climax of Season 2. On the flip side, the final tape -Season 4’s announcement implies the Upside Down could be coming for Dustin, Max, Steve, Lucas and company. The clock in the “Creel House” teaser can also be spotted prominently in an earlier version. Strange things Season 4 trailer and, judging by its vine-strewn appearance, antiquity clearly has something to do with the Upside Down. The clock perhaps provides a connection to the dimension and the fact that his face breaks in the trailer for “Creel House” could warn of a rift between Hawkins and Upside Down, with the latter taking more control of the former. .
During the first season, the Demogorgon escaped through the Upside Down, and it was up to Eleven to ultimately destroy the monster by closing the portal between dimensions. However, despite this feat that almost killed the young heroine, it was also only a temporary solution. By Season 2, the real-life rift between Hawkins and Upside Down Hawkins was big enough that many Demogorgons managed to get through, and the door that Eleven ultimately closed was much bigger this time around. Strange things Season 3 didn’t have time to explore the Upside Down thanks to its many subplots, but the most recent Season 4 trailer makes it clear that the Alternate Dimension will once again play a major role in the series.
The Upside Down is perhaps what provides Hopper with a route back to Hawkins that doesn’t take months of travel, as he’s currently in exile in Russia. The alternate dimension could also be the source of the season’s new antagonists, with Season 3’s Mind Flayer, Demogorgon, and Spider Monster all originating in Upside Down. At any rate, Strange things The photos from Season 4 hinted at the Upside Down taking over more of Hawkins. With the show’s most recent trailer reaffirming this, it seems increasingly likely that Strange things Season 4 will see the small town consumed by tendrils very soon.
