Top 3 Things You Missed in Stranger Things 2 Episodes 1-3

Stranger Things 3 can’t come soon enough. Welcome to Watchmojo.com, and today, we’re taking a look at some of the best easter eggs, references, and big moments from the final three episodes of the new season of “Stranger Things.”

#3: The Invisibles

The seventh episode of season 2 was a dramatic tone and genre shift from the rest of the series, briefly moving into superhero territory - and who better to pay homage to than a true master of the genre, Grant Morrison. While Morrison has written all-time great Batman and Superman stories, the Duffer brothers chose to reference one of his original creations: The Invisibles - a group of super-powered counterculture activists fighting against psychic aliens from another dimension who are in the process of enslaving humanity. If you look carefully, you can see graffiti around Kali and her party’s lair that namedrops King Mob, the lead character; O’Bedlam, the mentor of Invisibles member Jack Frost; and Barbelith, the sentient satellite.

#2: Kill 'Em All

Despite being a pretty terrible step-brother, Billy’s one redeeming quality is his taste in music. His wall features a poster for Metallica’s hugely influential debut album “Kill ‘Em All” released in 1983, one year before the events of “Stranger Things 2.” The song Billy’s listening to as he admires his own reflection is the second track on the album: "The Four Horsemen" which details an incoming apocalyptic event, and a sinner who has both experienced and caused great pain who must now fight for his life against an army of demons. Could this be hinting at an eventual redemption for Billy come season 3?

#1: “I'll Be Watching You”

While the kids enjoy a night of dancing, and Mike finally gets his dance with Eleven at the Snow Ball, they’re treated to sweet sounds of The Police’s hit single "Every Breath You Take" off their 1983 album Synchronicity, and while the song seems at first like it’s the perfect compliment to a truly touching moment, that doesn’t last long. In the closing moments of season 2, we see the Shadow Monster hovering over Hawkins Middle School, giving the lyrics “I’ll Be Watching You” a much, much creepier meaning.
