It turns out that some of those lengthy analyses of the Stranger Things season two episode names might not have been for shit. As it turns out, the Duffy Brothers have hoarded some of the “real” chapter titles, because they don’t want you spoiling everything.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Matt Duffer shared some details about the chapter titles for the next season of Stranger Things, which were released in a short teaser video when the season was announced last August. Duffer said that the episode titles do relate to the season’s plotline, but in some cases, they don’t tell the whole story. That’s because they were afraid fans would pull a Westworld and figure out the entire season’s storyline months before the show aired.
