We Need To Talk About That Scene In ‘Stranger Things 2′
I'm going to start off with a SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't seen all of Stranger Things 2, or at least past episode 4, then you should stop reading right now. If you don't care about Stranger Things or you don't care to have it spoiled then proceed. Again, this is your last warning, major spoilers for Stranger Things 2 coming up.
You've been warned. First of all I want to say that I really enjoyed Stranger Things 2. I finished it all in one day. I tried to pace myself and span it out over three days but I after that first episode where we see that Hopper is keeping Eleven safe, I needed more. I even enjoyed that one episode where Eleven goes all punk rock in her misfit group, which a lot of people had a problem with but that's a story for another day. There was only one thing that I had a problem with, and if you know me then you know what scene. Yes, it's a death scene, no it's not Bob's death. It's Mews!
That's right, Mews, Mrs. Henderson's adorable tabby, who we only got to enjoy for four episodes was eaten by the Demodog, named Dart, that Dustin got attached to and refused to capture. Dustin even lies to his mom when she's worried sick and tells her that Mews was spotted in the other neighborhood so she can go looking for him while Dustin tries to capture Dart. But it was too late, the damage had already been done. His death goes unexplained to Mrs. Henderson, sure she gets a new cat at the end, named Tews, but she'll always wonder why her beloved Mews left her. I wish I had a warning before I watched this episode, I didn't even check the one website that I love because I never expected this to happen, not on Stranger Things at least. So that's it. My one problem with Stranger Things 2. I need justice for Mews. To Mews, gone too soon but never forgotten. #JusticeForMews.
