The King of Hawkins High himself.
Do you even remember me from that class?
Of course you don't.
You were a real asshole, you know that?
Yeah, I know.
But it didn't even matter.
It didn't matter that you were an ass.
I was still...
obsessed with you.
Even though all of us losers pretend to be above it all,
we still just wanna be popular...
If it makes you feel any better,
having those things isn't all that great.
It just baffles me.
Everything that people tell you is important,
everything that people say you should care about, its all just...
But I guess you gotta mess up to figure things out, right?
I hope so.
I feel like my whole life has been...
one big error.
At least it can't get any more messed up than this.
You know, I wish I'd known you in Click's class.
- Yeah? - Really, I do.
Maybe you could've helped me pass the class.
Maybe instead of being here,
I'd be on my way to college right now.
And I would have no idea
that there were evil Russians beneath our feet,
and I would be happily
slinging ice cream with some other schmuck.
Gotta say, though,
I liked being your schmuck.
It was fun while it lasted.
Where were you two going?
Try telling the truth this time, yes?
It will make your visit with Dr. Zharkov less painful.
Wait a second. Wait. Hold on.
好 等等 那是什么
Okay! Wait, wait, wait! What is that thing?
It will help you talk.
Did you even clean that thing?!
What's he doing now?
And that's not normal, right?
Billy staying in his room on the Fourth of July?
No, that's not normal.
He wants us to find him.
Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of.
If we go to Billy,
then the rest of the flayed know where we are.
是个陷阱 我同意 我们会被埋伏
It's a trap, I agree. We'll be ambushed.
We won't be surprised.
We'll know that they're coming,
and we will kick their flayed butts.
You mean El will kick their butts.
彩虹 右转三下 左转四下
Rainbow. Three to the right, four to the left.
-风险太大了 -对 而且没必要
- It's too risky. - Yeah, and unnecessary.
Killing the flayed won't stop the Mind Flayer.
We have to find out where it's spreading from.
We have to find the source.
Billy knows it.
Billy's been there.
To the source.
-对 但是 -那是陷阱 我明白
- Yeah, but-- - It's a trap. I know.
We can't go to Billy,
but I think there's another way.
A way for me to see where he's been.
一一 你觉得你必须这么做 但其实不是的
El, I know you think you have to do this, but you don't.
It's just, you've only done this before once.
And your mom, she loved you,
and wanted you to know what happened.
And Billy's mind is-- is sick, diseased.
The Mind Flayer is in him.
He can't hurt me.
Not in there.
We don't know that.
I need you to trust me.
Just... be careful.
Can you hear me?
I want to see.
I want to see what happened.
住手 不 不 不
Stop! No! No! No!
El, are you okay?
Are you okay?
What's going on?
I'm... on a beach.
Okay, I may be dense,
but the last I checked,
there weren't any beaches in Hawkins.
What else do you see?
I... I think she's looking at me.
You did it!
There's... a boy.
Did you see that?
Yeah, I saw that!
That was at least seven feet.
I don't know what it was, but it almost gave me a heart attack.
Ten more minutes?
-好 再玩十分钟 -好
- Yeah, okay, ten more minutes. - Okay.
但超过十分钟 爸爸就要生气了 好吗
But any longer than that, Dad's gonna be mad, okay?
Watch out for rip currents!
It's a memory.
I think I see it. The source.
Two minutes, Jim.
It's a secure line,
but any longer than that and they could trace you.
Yeah, I want 'em to trace me.
Philadelphia Public Library.
This is Jim Hopper...
uh... police chief, Hawkins.
