There's A Heartbreaking Detail In "Stranger Things 2" That You Probably Missed And It Will Kill You

Spoilers definitely lie ahead.

Now, for the rest of you who are done with Season 2 and looking for a way to fill the void in your heart, let's take a moment to talk about love of my life Chief Hopper.

If you recall (and I'm SURE you do), there was a super-sad flashback in the Season 1 finale to Hopper and his family.


We first saw his daughter, Sara, have a panic attack, and then in another flashback later that episode, we saw her in the ICU where she eventually died.


Obviously, Hopper has really taken Eleven under his wing this season (and literally adopted her as his own daughter).


So, it's not THAT surprising he'd bestow this small, but significant, memory of Sara's life on El.

But, man, it's just another great detail that shows how many layers there are to Stranger Things!


Maybe next season Eleven's hair will be long enough to even wear the hair band? Although, let's be real, it works pretty perfectly as a bracelet.
