Already stepping into adolescence, the boys are beginning their love relationships: on the one hand Mike Y raise (under the gaze of hopperwho is like the overprotective dad of 11), and on the other Max and Lucas. We also have the distance relationship between Dustin Y suziewho gave us an epic musical moment in the middle of a key situation.

In this season, our young protagonists not only faced the Mind Flayerwho returns with an army through a small crack in the Upside Down, but they also have to stop a group of undercover Russians who want to reopen the portal.
