The Most Heartbreaking Moment In ‘Stranger Things 2’ That You Probably Missed

Published

on

In Stranger Things, giant, otherworldly shadow monsters terrorize sleepy 1980s suburbia. Presumably dead preteens communicate via Christmas lights. Friends get sucked into parallel universes. And yet, the show is at its most gripping when it focuses on its human relationships. If you managed to pry your eyes from the screen for even a second, you might have missed the most touching, heartbreaking moment in the entire show.

Hopper Lost His Daughter To Cancer

For the full context, you need to go back to season one. Hopper reveals that he lost his daughter to cancer. In flashback sequences, we see that his daughter used to wear her hair in pigtails, tied with bright blue hair ties. We also see that Hopper wore the hair tie around his wrist throughout his daughter’s treatment. The hair tie would then become one of the most important hidden details in the show.

After his daughter passed away, keen-eyed viewers would notice that he still wears her hair tie around his wrist. He never takes it off.

Hopper Uses A Relic To Always Remember His Daughter

It becomes a specter in Hopper’s scenes. He always wears it. It’s a source of comfort and a painful memory. This would also be true for the viewers who notice where it ends up.

As we learn more about Hopper’s past, we also come to understand his relationship with the mysterious Eleven. The two form a profound bond. Throughout the show, Hopper struggles with his intense need to protect Eleven at all costs. However, he takes it too far.

A Father/Daughter Bond Overcomes Deadly Obstacles

Throughout the second season, Hopper and Eleven clash. Hopper is overprotective to the point of abuse. Eleven is restless, curious, and lonely. Their struggle is heartbreaking because the issues stem from how much they love each other. In the end, they learn how to channel that love into respect. Their father/daughter bond becomes the very heart of the show. And that’s why it makes you cry so much when you see Eleven at her prom.

On Eleven’s wrist is the blue hair tie once worn by someone who is, in essence, her lost sister. It’s a gift from Hopper.
