While Stranger Things season 2 means audience get to spend more time with the gang, it also means another threat will endanger the people of Hawkins. This time, it seems the next monster could be more sinister than the Demogorgon.
An article from Screen Rant detailed a number of potential villains that could make their way to the second season. Since the Demogorgon hails from the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons, the list also considers other monsters from the game.
From the list of 15, two creatures that stand out are the Tiamat and the Lolth. The source describes the Tiamat as, “…Tiamat […] sports five heads, and thus has the abilities of five dragons at once. Tiamat is so powerful and so evil that she rules over her own plane of the Nine Hells in the D&D universe.”
SR takes the latest Stranger Things trailer as basis on why Tiamat could be season 2’s monster. The source speculates that instead of arms, the long limbs shown are heads.
Meanwhile, another candidate on the list is the Lolth. According to the source, Lolth is the demon queen of the Abyss. What makes her somehow more lethal than the Tiamat is her mortal form–a gigantic spider.
As to why Lolth makes a good candidate, SR details that the new monster looks like it has eight legs. Hence, a spider villain appears logical.
Towards the very end of the trailer, a slow opening door reveals some creature against a reddened sky. It only appears for a split second, but when one pauses the clip, the image resembles a multi-legged creature.
Stranger Things Season 2 Titles Changed
Another news pertaining to the upcoming season reveals that some titles have been changed for the show’s nine episodes. When Netflix released the season 2 announcement, episode titles accompanied the video.
However, Matt Duffer recently discussed with Entertainment Weekly that some titles are changing. According to the director, fans and people on the Internet are smart that some of the theories are actually right.
The original titles from the announcement trailer listed Madmax, The Boy Who Came Back to Life, The Pumpkin Patch, The Palace, The Storm, The Pollywog, The Secret Cabin, The Brain and The Lost Brother. However, Matt Duffer did not reveal which of these original ones changed.
Fans will know soon enough which theories are right. Stranger Things season 2 drops in Netflix on Halloween, October 31.
