At the end of Stranger Things Season 3, we saw Hopper disappear and in Season 4, we’re in for a treat as he makes a great escape.
The teaser for Stranger Things Season 4 is out and we have fan theories on what we will see in the new season. We also have theories on Hopper aka David Harbour being alive. At the end of Stranger Things Season 3, we saw Hopper disappear as Joyce closed the gate to The Upside Down. After the gate was closed, a huge blast occurred, seemingly vaporizing anyone in the vicinity.
The teaser shows a tagline saying, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore”. The new teaser is offering a few tantalizing clues about the fate of Jim Hopper and our favorite Hawkins, Indiana residents. Fans are dying to see Hopper back in season 4. The post-credit scene takes place in Russia where the soldiers talk about “the American” they’ve seemingly captured. Fans think the American is really Hopper.
The Clues from Teasers and other Sources
After the teaser released, there were some changes in David Harbour’s social media accounts. The actor updated his profile, possibly revealing a huge spoiler that the teaser seems to support. Stranger Things 4 Fan theories sugest that at the end of Stranger Things 3, Jim Hopper sacrificed himself for everyone. His daughter Eleven moves in with Joyce (Winona Ryder) and the Byers family before they fled Hawkins.
Eleven has also lost her powers. While the Byers are packing to leave Hawkins, El reveals to Mike that she loves him too and they share a kiss. El and Mike, Jonathan and Nancy, and Will and all his friends had to say goodbye to one another. A scene that was especially painful after El had just told Mike that she loved him.
From Late Night with Seth Meyers
David Harbour, in a conversation on Late Night With Seth Meyers, revealed that he doesn’t know the fate of Hopper. “Well, here’s the thing. I always knew that Hopper had to make a sacrifice. Like, he’s a jerk, and he also needs to pay for that in some way. So I thought he’d make the sacrifice,” Harbour said.
On the plans for Stranger Things Season 4, Duffer Brothers have suggested that they will end it after the 4th season. Matt Duffer on Stranger Things Season 4 said that something big is going to happen. It’s going to open up a little bit, not necessarily in terms of scale or special effects, but in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins. This could mean that we will explore the Russian connection next season much more.
Fan theories on Stranger Things Season 4
Now that Hopper is gone, Joyce takes custody of El and the Byers family is ready for a fresh start outside of Hawkins. Joyce ended up fulfilling her promise of leaving the cursed town for somewhere much safer. The story could start with Eleven and Joyce somewhere outside Hawkins and enjoying their life. They are going back to Hawkins to meet their old friends. As Eleven also misses Mike, she is desperate to meet him.
After the gang has reunited, eleven goes back to his home (Hopper’s house) as he misses Hopper. As she reaches there she feels a different vibe. She gets some intuitions like, Hopper is alive and somewhere out there. With her gang, she starts to search for by using her power which she lost in the last season.
At last, she regains her power and sees Hopper in a cage. She hears voices of Russians around her. From there, she gets a clue that Hopper could be in Russia.
Hopper is in Russia?
On the other hand in Stranger Things 4 shows theories about Alexei’s younger brother Sasha has come to Hawkins to find him. He doesn’t know that Alexei was shot dead by the Russians. After he meets Murry Burman who tells him that his brother is dead. Now, he wants to take revenge from the Russians. The Russians are working on the same motive that they were doing in Hawkins. They also have an American Man in jail.
Now, these children, Murry, Alexei and younger brotherSasha will team up and fight against the Russians. With that, they will help Hopper escape the prison. Till now this is a combination of our prediction and the fan theories. Let’s see what addition will Stranger Things show in there next trailer.
