Quotes

Jim Hopper: [reading] There's something I've been wanting to talk to you both about - and I know this is a difficult conversation. But I care about you both very much. And I know 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. Jesus.

The Planck´s Constant
27 October 2019 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Hopper, Joyce and Murray head to the Russian base to activate the keys that are opening The Gate, with the support of Steve, Robin, Dustin and Erica by radio. El and her friends are leaving the Starcourt Mall when they realize that Billy has stolen the ignition cable from Nancy´s car and they are forced to seek shelter from the Mind Flayer in the mall.

"Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt" is the second best episode of this season. The conclusion is great and hope to find Hopper safe and sound in Russia. The part when Dustin needs the Planck´s Constant is tense and hilarious. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt"
