More Stranger Things 2 news, this time in an update to the nature of the story arc David Harbour’s Chief Hopper will take in season two of the Netflix hist series. Here David Harbor himself reveals how his character has to deal with the “death” of Eleven, the finding of WIll Beyers, and the covering up of the events of season one from the Hawkins Lab. Thus, it will be fascinating to watch Hopper deal with being both a hero to Will and with the guilt of what he did to Eleven.
In a video interview with THR, Harbour discusses what’s next for Hopper in the new season. Here is what Harbour said about his character’s future:
“He’s a different man than he was in season one and he gets to go on a different arc. The first season he really sort of discovered why he was dead inside and like how he was finding his way out and he kind of came to life. And so in the second season, his arc is very different.”
“We start with a man who has sort of become heroic in a certain way, right? I mean he still has some of his stuff but he has gone on this heroic journey and now sort of the beginning of the [first] episode, we start examining the perils of what it is to be a hero or perhaps the fantasies that you have about yourself and the dangers of that. And that subtle arc takes him in a different direction which, I think, is equally satisfying but very, very different.”
