Since the series is returning after more than two years, we just wanted to fill the gap in your memory.  

Changing group dynamics

The Russians’ plan

After intercepting a Russian signal, Dustin teams up with Erica, Robin, and Steve to crack the code. They figure out a secret Russian lab below the Starcourt Mall. Russians own many properties at Hawkins, even the Starcourt Mall. They are running experiments to open the gate to the Upside Down.
