there was always like a .0002% chance his "death" was legit

was holding out hope they'd stick to their guns killing off characters GoT style but let's get real this was always happening

I hope season 4 brings back the Hopper that was fun to watch in the first two seasons. Season 3 was a complete character assassination in his case and was hugely disappointing.

I was genuinely puzzled to see all the 'I knew it!' reactions on social media. Did people just turn off the last episode before the epilogue?

Season 3 may have lost me as a viewer, it was terrible. I'll wait for the opinions of those that hated 3 before it watch 4. My interest in this show is waning.

1. He should have stayed dead.
2. Showing this reveal on a trailer instead of the actual show..

Did you turn off social media or resetera after viewing the final episode? It was debated/speculated and fuel was even added by the actor questioning his return lol.
I watch the show but don't discuss it much online. It's just that it was so obvious that the epilogue was about hopper that I didn't think it was even supposed to be in question.

Yeah this is kind of a weird way to go about it imo. Should've shown this at the end of the first episode imo, or something similar.
There was no way they were going to keep this from leaking out during filming and on top of that you expect David Habour to have to lie for the next few months whenever he's asked the question during his media tour for Black Widow?

There was no way his involvement was going to be able to stay a secret until the season aired so may as well do it now.

We all knew it because they never showed a body. It was never gonna be the scientist dude, never gonna be anyone else. It was incredibly obvious. It'd be like killing off Tirion from GoT: he is one of the most popular characters on the show.

If anything, the shocking part is that they brought him back that quickly. I would've expected him to have gotten thrown through the portal, but maybe that's exactly what did happen - he got knocked in and spat out the other side in Russia.

Hell, maybe that's the REAL intended purpose of the portal all along - allowing a quick method for the Russians to invade the US from within via long-distance transdimensional teleportation. Mindflayers and Shadow Lords and whatnot were all just an unintended side-effect.
