The kids at Hawkins spend most of the “Hawkins Lab Massacre” in Upside Down.

Showrunners Ross and Matt Duffer have promised that the characters will spend more time in Upside Down than ever before in the series. They realized that another threat from an alternate dimension threatens to take more lives and destroy the whole world if they don’t take care of the situation. Dustin, who suspiciously points out that he is always right, realized that a new gate opens every time Vecna kills someone. When Steve was sucked through the gate, the senior group followed him to rescue him, while Dustin, Lucas and Max stayed on shore to deal with the police.

In Wheelers, children can’t keep their stories clean by looking at them under a microscope. However, fighting off a swarm of Dembats, Steve and the gang get to an inverted version of the Wheelers. With the help of Dustin and the team, they communicate using Lite Brite and ask to meet at Eddie’s house. Chrissy died there, so they assume that another gate opened there.

They safely rescue Eddie and Robin, but as Nancy goes through it, she doesn’t end up in the real world. She falls into the clutches of Vecna. Vecna shows her how Barb died, but then he tells her the story of his villainous origin, and damn it, it’s nonsense. But more on that later.
