    lol u can just not click the thread lol

    So the last scene of the last episode, there was this soviet base and one of the guards said "don't take the american" to the other guard so I think maybe that American is Hopper? Maybe he never died but instead, he got captured by the soviet peeps? I really hope he didn't die, guess we will find out in season 4 lol

    Leading theory is that they wanted you to think that the American was Hopper. In Season 4, they'll probably add some more hints making people think the American is Hopper, then reveal it's just some random dude. Or another American of importance, like the original dude that created Eleven, or Murray or something.

    The twist will then be that Hopper is still actually alive, just not in the Russian prison. He jumped into the Upside Down before the gateway closed. He will be trapped there until the Russians open the gateway back up. He'll most likely be possessed by the Mind Flayer, and be one of the main conflicts of the second half of season 4.

    This isn't really an original idea on my part. This is just what I've seen on Reddit and discussion pages about Stranger Things. It seems plausible to me. If nothing else, I feel that "the American" isn't actually Hopper, since that'd be too easy of a giveaway. They want you to think it's him in there just to leave you in suspense and then let you down when they reveal who it is.

    In Season 1, they found Will's dead body in the lake but it turned out not to be him, in the event of all of this, the song 'Hero' begins to play. In Season 3, Hopper dies, as this is all taking place the song 'Hero' begins to play which means that Hopper, might not be dead.

    Throughout the whole show, we hear "keep the door open 3 inches", which is an on-going joke between Hopper himself, Mike and Eleven. At the end of the season, there is a small gap from where the huge machine did not manage to open the gate which left a 3-inch gap. The gate was still open therefore Hopper could have escaped through there.

    At the end of the season, the Russians say "not the American", please keep this part in your head. Earlier on in the season, Billy is in the upside down along with the other girl from the swimming pool as well as an army of people who have been turned, not to mention the big ghostly figure which ends up to be a demogorgans at the end of the season in the cage. If you think about it, to capture the demogorgan they would have gone into the upside down through that gate to capture it and to put it behind bars.

    As the Russians say, not the American, this could mean that Hopper escaped through the 3-inch gap but was caught by the Russians and is currently locked away in a cell just waiting to be demogorgan food.

    That is my conspiracy and if you think about it, it works out. Although, all we can do is just wait.

    I think he did jump into the gateway, but since Hopper has already been there before and kinda knows how it works, I think he exited the gateway on the other side (Russia) and was captured there.

    That’s a good possibility because how would the Russians have a portal to capture the demogorgans and I think they might have other creatures when they discovered the huge cage underground

    That's been a popular theory online that my roommate believes.

    The issue I take with that is they never show or hint at Russia managing to actually open the gate in Russia, so they'd have to do some backtracking and fill in some gaps in Season 4 about how they managed to get it open in Russia.

    Yes, i believe he went into the upside down or escaped another way, cause they showed the scientist people next to him disintegrate but not him, and i didnt think about the american being Murray, good theory
    I hope so, some people didnt like hopper but personally i liked him. one of my favorite characters
    I actually noticed the song Hero on also and thought that, now i havent heard the 3 inch wide gate theory but i did notice it was kinda open
    Also maybe while capturing the demogorgan they found hopper in there
    I think so too, that one cage in the lab was very huge even for a demogorgan i think.
    I was thinking this, cause alexi(RIP) was saying it was the place that mattered, i think he said that, but maybe they just either used 008 and captured her, used even more energy, or found a random person like 011 or 008
    Is beth the lifeguard?
    I think its beth, barbara was nancys friend, beth was a lifeguard i think
    Yea the demogorgan smelled the blood in the pool.
    Lots of people think the american is Papa
    Yea i kept watching cause i had a feeling something would be there
    facts
    its not too expensive, you should get it

    Maybe instead of the machine slimifying him he got teleported to the soviet base and got taken prisoner
