Here is more on “Stranger Things” season 4 spoilers and theories along with the latest updates on filming and release date of the show on Netflix.
Stranger Things Season 4 Hopper and Eleven Spoilers
Stranger Things Season 4 trailer: “From Russia with Love” shows that Hopper is kept a prisoner in the snowy regions of Russia and he is forced to work on the rail tracks along with the other prisoners. Fans were surprised to see that Jim Hopper was alive but the biggest mystery was that why was he bald and he had some weird expressions on his face.
One of the Stranger Things season 4 theory claims that the Hopper seen on the train tracks is not the real sheriff from Hawkins and is instead a clone made by the Russians. It also explains why he doesn’t have hairs and he is emotionless. Stranger Things already focus on human experiments and it won’t be a surprise if cloning technology has been invented in Russia.
The goal is to lure Eleven by the clone Hopper and steal her powers for evil purposes. Hiro Koda, one of the stunt coordinators for Stranger Things season 4 has revealed that the next season will be epic and darker, where Hopper being an evil clone and stealing the telekinesis powers of Eleven will be an amazing twist.
