Stranger Things Season 2 drops on Friday, and as the premiere draws closer and closer, we still don’t have a ton of information about the new season’s plot. We do know that the new episodes revolve around a “shadow monster,” a giant creature that Will meets in his visions of the Upside Down. "Each episode is building on the last one," co-creator Matt Duffer told Entertainment Weekly. "It gets much crazier than it ever got in Season 1." Thanks to Netflix’s latest trailers and clips, we’ve seen that Will isn’t unscathed after his escape from the Upside Down. Eleven has also escaped from her time in that eerie alternate universe by popping out of a slimy hole in a hallway. Gross.
