Croquet mallets are shown in the Wheeler's garage. This is a reference to Stephen King's novel "The Shining" as a character in that novel uses a croquet mallet as a weapon. See more »

Mike Wheeler: [as Eleven noisily tries to boost the walkie talkie signal, annoying Mike] Can you *please* stop that?
[Eleven continues trying to boost the signal]
Mike Wheeler: Are you deaf? I thought we were friends, you know? But friends tell each other the truth. And they definitely don't lie to each other.

Getting Better and Better

Joyce discloses to Hopper that she is in contact with Will and that there is a monster in the wall, but he believes she is delusional. In the morgue, Joyce does not confirm the body is Will´s. Hopper does not understand why the autopsy was not carried out by Gary, but by state officials. El shows Mike that Will is alive using his walkie talkie and he summons his friends to the basement. They decide to take El to the school to use Mr. Clarke´s radio that is more powerful. In the Hawkins Laboratory, one man crosses the gate to the other dimension attached by a line but he is attacked and vanishes. Nancy seeks out Jonathan to discuss about the photo he took of Barb at the swimming pool. El and Joyce contact Will at the same time. Hopper decides to investigate the truth about Will´s body and comes up to surprising discoveries.

"Chapter Four: The Body" is so far the best episode of "Strange Things". Now the viewer learns that there is a parallel dimension where Will is trapped inside. The persistent Hopper is disclosing the truth about his disappearance. And people is finally believing in Joyce despite her lunatic behavior. My vote is nine.
