Stranger Things Season 3 Episode 7 Recap
In the previous episode of Netflix’s Stranger Things, Dustin and Erica came to Steve and Robin’s rescue, while Eleven found the Mind Flayer at Brimborn Steelworks. In Stranger Things Season 3 Episode 7, the Mind Flayer headed for the cabin, while Dustin, Erica, Steve and Robin tried to find their way out of the mall.
The Mind Flayer headed for the cabin, and the group prepared for the attack. Tentacles came through the cabin, and El was able to use her powers to tear them apart. It grabbed her leg and held on. She split the Mind Flayer’s “head” in half, and Mike tore the tentacle off her leg, revealing a deep wound.
They all escaped the cabin and broke into a grocery store. Accustomed to gruesome injuries from skateboarding, Max led the charge in treating Eleven’s injury. When El was feeling better, Mike was desperately trying to tell her how he feels about her. At that moment, Dustin finally came through on the radio. Unfortunately, the batteries in Dustin’s radio were failing, and they couldn’t get much information. They all left, and Lucas took an arsenal of fireworks with him.
Dustin and Erica had to babysit drugged Robin and Steve, as they escaped the Russian underground fortress. The Russians guarded the loading dock, so they ducked into the Employees Only hallway. They snuck into the movie theater and into a showing of Back to the Future. Unfortunately, they had to sit separately, and Dustin and Erica lost Steve and Robin. They ran into the restroom to vomit. While on the restroom floor, Steve confessed to Robin that he liked her. Unfortunately, when Robin had said she was obsessed with him, it wasn’t because she liked him. Robin liked a girl, who had liked him.
When the movie ended, Dustin, Erica, Steve, and Robin tried to blend with the crowd exiting. However, the Russians were monitoring the crowd. They hid in the food court, but when the Russians were close, the rest of the group arrived. Eleven flung a car at them. Unfortunately, the reunion was cut short with Eleven in distress.
Fourth of July Carnival
Joyce and Hopper wanted to go to the Fourth of July carnival to find their kids. In the car on the way, they bickered, and Bauman remarked on their sexual tension. At the carnival, Mayor Kline saw them and called in Russian reinforcements.
Bauman and Alexei left the car against instructions. Alexei wanted to experience the American traditions. While Bauman went to get corn dogs, Alexei won a stuffed prize by playing balloon darts. On his way back to Bauman, Grigori found him and shot him in the stomach with a silenced gun. Horrified, Bauman searched for Hopper and Joyce, who were stuck in the Gravitron. When they got back to Alexei, he was dead, and the Russians were after them. Hopper headed into the fun house, where he fought them.
