Stranger Things, Season 1 Finale, Chapter 8, “The Upside Down”

So the Season 1 finale recap of Stranger Things is a little late. That’s because I have been having my own problems with electricity — namely, a blackout. Luckily there was no demogorgon appearance while I was waiting for the power to be restored. But, here’s what went down in Episode 8 (entitled “The Upside Down).

Episode 8 of Stranger Things starts with the people at the not-secret secret lab trying everything they have to find out where Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) is. Mostly Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) is sticking to her guns and not falling for their “the monster will take more sons, more daughters,” line. Hooper (David Harbour), on the other hand, is ready to make a deal with them and I am still trying to work out if he had a plan or was just spineless in the end. However, he did pull the “I know someone at the paper that will blow this wide open if I die” card. Regardless of where Hopper stands in all this though, they finally agree to let him and Joyce enter the Upside Down to find Will (Noah Schnapp) while they go and chase down Eleven…

Fear the Walking Dead, Season 2, Episode 8, “Grotesque”

  Hola! And welcome to the return of Fear the Walking Dead and Cassidy’s episode recaps for this and the following seven weeks. After a couple of weeks off chillin’ and watching movies it’s time to get the recapping hat back on, and fortunately for her last night’s episode was straight to the point.

Note: This will likely not be a long recap, and you’ll see why as we go along.

Stranger Things, Season 1, Chapter 7, “The Bathtub” Recap

So this episode starts with Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) needing Mike (Finn Wolfhard) to tell her she’s pretty and Mike saying all the right things to get a kiss out of her. Well, almost. Because Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) arrives and reminds them there are more important things to worry about like Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) warning them via walkie talkie that the bad men are coming and the fact there is now a suspicious generic white van outside Mike’s house.

Welcome to the recap of Episode 6 (entitled “The Monster”) of Season 1 of Stranger Things. Here’s what went down in Episode 6.

Since Nancy (Natalia Dyer) did the classic horror move of doing dumb things when there is no one around, she is now stuck in the Upside Down and hiding from the monster there. Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) can hear her calling out, but they can’t find each other until Jonathan manages to find the tree she climbed into.Nancy sees his flashlight from the Upside Down and makes a run for it, scaring the shit out of Jonathan as she reaches out of the tree and tries to grab him. Once Jonathan gets over his fright he helps her out of the tree…
