This post contains spoilers for Stranger Things 3.
Fans of Stranger Things were rather devastated that Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) seemed to die at the end of the third season. The beloved character seemed to sacrifice himself in a fiery explosion to save Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) and the rest of Hawkins, IN.
While an explosion seems rather final, we never saw a body. A good rule of pop culture deaths is that if we never see a body, anything is possible. Also, a reference to "The American" in a post-credit scene set in a Russian prison also sent viewers down theorizing rabbit holes.
