It’s been 4 months since the release of stranger Things 3, and we are still wondering what happened to one of our favorite characters - Jim Hopper. The last episode showed, though not clearly, Jim Hoppers death while closing the Gate to Upside Down. And when the fans had accepted his death, David Harbour, the actor who plays the role of Jim Hopper, has been giving us all little hints on his whereabouts.
Harbour started dropping hints about his incomplete end on Instagram. He first changed his profile picture to list the digits of Murray Bauman’s phone number. This number leads to a voicemail Easter egg directed at Joyce. David didn’t stop at it. He is dropping even juicier hints about where Hop could be. The second hint he has given leads us to Upside Down. David has posted a series of images referring to Eleven’s Mom in Stranger Things Season 2. His Instagram feed comprises three consecutive posts of sunflower, Rainbow and a picture of Shark upside down. Fans were quick to recognize first two objects as two of the words that Eleven’s mum Terry kept chanting in season 2: “Sunflower. Rainbow. Three to the right, four to the left. 450.”
Another interesting thing to notice is that when inverted Murray’s phone number becomes the longitudinal coordinate of Kamchatka, Russia. Exactly where the “unknown” American is. These hints are making us all curious. Questions like where is Jim? Is he alive? Is he in Upside Down? Can eleven get back her powers? Will she help him? Have doing the rounds on fan pages of the show. Whatever it is, we hope the new season brings us some good news. Over and out!
