Did You Know?


The music used when Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Kali (Linnea Berthelsen) and her gang are preparing to leave to find Ray (Pruitt Taylor Vince) is from the deleted Bank Heist scene from Escape from New York (1981) - composed by John Carpenter. See more »


When Eleven/Jane reaches out to touch Kali's face, most angles show her right hand outstretched, but in the first shot of eleven touching Kali's face, it's her left hand. See more »


Kali: They cannot save you, Jane!
Eleven: No. But I can save them.

This episode was such a jumbled piece of garbage. I love this show (excluding this episode), and the episode was written in a vacuum probably for the sole purpose of one or more spin-offs. It doesn't even feel like it's on the same time line, nor does it feature any of the other main characters doing anything important.

I dug my IMDb account out of the graveyard just to review this monstrosity.

This was an absent minded spin off ramble that contributes absolutely nothing to the existing story line, and was written like a typical, garbage network prime time superhero dramedy. Cheesy all-new characters, and the sophistication of a low grade network action series abuses the most tried tropes in decades old television and film. Maybe it's possible that the episode is a satire of modern prime time television, but it seems to not include itself in the joke.

Everything including editing feels like an afterthought, and was probably an answer to "how can we eek out another episode without driving any plot or paying any additional characters for screen time?"

This is just such a train wreck that I have to speak against it, lest it become more common in the future. As subscription television becomes more popular and common it should not need to relive the historical downfalls of traditional TV and the reason we cut cords in the first place.
