Chief Hopper is brainwashed into working under the Russian government. The game begins.
Stranger Things season 4 is in the works and it is old news already. However, what has disrupted the web is the latest teaser of Stranger Things 4. Chief Hopper is alive and well. Now that could mean anything. What I am wondering about is whether he is really okay. What would be the unexpected twist? Will we see Chief Hopper without his memory of the past in Stranger Things?
Stranger Things season 3 ended on a cliffhanger with Hopper’s death. The post-credit scene showed an American prisoner being held hostage in a Russian prison. Fans had been speculating whether he was dead for real or just trapped in the door. The answers are here already with the new teaser that shows him alive.
- Chief Hopper is alive and kicking
- He has probably lost his memories or submitted to brainwashing.
- He has
Hopper doesn’t remember anything?
Alright, it cannot be told from the teaser itself if the Sheriff is mentally healthy. After having been through a massive explosion, he may have suffered a concussion or something. After all, he’s only human, right?
What if the Chief has lost his memory and has been serving in the Russian prison for the same reason? Well, that’s very much possible. Or maybe, just maybe he has been brainwashed by the Russian government to help them build the door to another dimension successfully.
Before you go ahead and pounce on me, let me clarify that this is merely a hypothetical situation. One of my theories; you never know, it might happen for real.
Anyway, I think Hopper has been brainwashed or lost his memories. The government of Russia has taken him under as the closest point of contact with El and the squad.
Yes, it is a given that El and the Byers would at some point try to contact him, if they got to know that he was alive. But before that could happen, Chief would go contact them himself and lay his plan out. This would go on for some time till Joyce realises that something’s off about Hopper.
The entire scenario could end in two different ways. He could either be a badass villain and lead to the end of it all or he could be helped by his daughter El and his potential love interest Joyce into remembering everything. Only now he would be fighting on their side, unknown to the Russians.
And maybe there will be a possibility that Joyce and Hopper will reunite and stronger this time. Well, that’s the little romantic in me wishing for. But what the hell.
I mean, the drama would be epic if this were to happen but it’s just a theory. It might not even come true at all. Ah, it doesn’t matter. After all, I had to occupy my mind with something before Stranger Things season 4 releases sometime in 2020.
WE. CANNOT. KEEP. CALM.
