Who is The American in Stranger Things?
Surely there’s only one person who could have possibly been captured by the USSR, is currently banged behind bars and will presumably be the focus of Stranger Things season 4.
It’s got to be Hopper, right?
Stranger Things closed with the heartbreaking death of Hopper, as he sacrifice himself to save the planet from fugly monsters, giving up on his romance with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) before it had really begun.
And then came the post-credits which revealed an American is currently being held hostage by the Russians, and naturally all fingers pointed to Eleven’s dad.
Well, despite an Easter Egg in season three alluding to the captive being Barb (never forget), showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer have teased they always planned to give Hopper his ‘Han Solo sacrifice moment’, when Han Solo turned out to be alive – just about – and was being held prisoner by Jabba the Hut after giving himself up in The Empire Strikes Back.
‘We always talk about Empire Strikes Back, we always wanted to give him a darker ending, we always wanted to give him a Han Solo sacrifice moment,’ Matt told Entertainment Weekly.
‘It was emotional to shoot but it was really, really quick. David never asked for music but I think we did play some emotional music when we shot David’s final look at Winona [Ryder].’
Ross added: ‘There’s a tragedy there but there’s also a little bit of “it’s okay” to Joyce.
‘There’s so much going on in his eyes and you can only script that so much.’
What’s more, Harbour is contracted for a fourth season and if you’ve rang Murray’s phone number, you’ll know there’s something huge on the way. We’ve gathered all the evidence Hopper’s still alive right here.
Stranger Things season one to three is available to stream on Netflix.
