Does this episode make the hour go fast by holding my attention? Definitely. Does it make me want to watch next week? Absolutely.
92-94% of viewers seem to agree as that is the viewer retention rate with 11 million viewers tuning in. Considering it is going up against the insipid Dancing With The Stars (top 10 rated) that is in the top 10 for some reason that aint bad. The Hawkins mystery continues to deepen and the hints of what is going on in the outside world continues to trickle in. Next week should be interesting.
