With Stranger Things season 4 in the works, the fandom is rooting for Jopper
Stranger Things has surpassed the benchmark of popularity. Surely, this was not just because of battles with monsters or crazy alternate dimensions, right! Of course, those make up for the very crux of the show. However, the streaming giant Netflix always has more for the viewers to cherish. The proof is the shows fandom.
Stranger Things is no stranger to hundreds of speculations and theories. The web is flooding with them and how!
From cutely dressed up kids to couples worth shipping, Stranger Things has it all. Which makes me come to the point. Are you a Jopper fan? Are you rooting for Joyce and Hopper to end up together? Well, welcome to the club.
Stranger Things season 2 kept them apart as much as possible and my heart would break every time I realised that. Cut to season three, just when I thought love was in the works, the starcourt mall explosion shattered my hopes with it.
Stranger Things Season 4 is brewing and hopes are high
On Beyond Stranger Things – the Netflix after-show – David Harbour, who play the role of Chief Hopper, commented on Joyce’s relationship with Bob.
“Does Hopper think that Joyce and Bob are a good match? I would say absolutely not. I mean, look, I get the impulse that she’s following. She was clearly in a very destructive relationship with Lonnie and she’s clearly very protective of Will and so she’s sort of chosen this guy that’s gonna be very nice to her and very nice to Will and sort of be a good, dorky father figure. But you know, the fans, they call it like “Jopper” or something, they all ‘ship this relationship of Hopper and Joyce, and I do too. I feel like they’re two really lonely lost people who really need each other.”
If the man himself ships the couple so much, who are we to object, right!
Even though it seems that Hopper died in the starcourt mall tragedy, we still haven’t been shown that he’s dead for real. Theories speculate that he is the American in the Russian prison shown in the post credits of Stranger Things 3.
If he is alive, we might as well hope that Joyce is gonna be running to Russia to save him.
Will Joyce do everything in her power to save Hopper in Stranger Things if there’s a tiny possibility that he could be alive? She better do it. For once, I’d like to forget the battles, the hardships, and the tragedies. Let me be dewy-eyed and dream of seeing the two of them together. Stranger Things 4 might not see them together-together. With the battle ahead and the demogorgon on loose, let’s just say, it would be long before these two high school friends get a chance at coupledom. We’d rather say they take things slowly and not rush into it like Jonathan and Nancy did.
If Stranger Things season 5 ever comes up, I’d want them to end up together in it. After all, we deserve a happy ending, don’t we?
