What You Need To Know:

“Chapter 6:  E Pluribus Unum” of Netflix’s STRANGER THINGS series begins as Nancy and Jonathan are in peril at the hands of multiple humans infected by the interdimensional creature called The Mind Flayer. Escaping their clutches, they regroup with their younger siblings to hatch a plan. Meanwhile, Hop and Joyce get help from someone who can translate Russian so they can understand the Russian scientist and what’s happening. Dustin, Steve, and Robin enlist Erica’s help to navigate the Russian hideout under the mall. Lastly, Eleven uses her special powers to see inside Billy’s mind and understand how the Mind Flayer attacked him.

“E Pluribus Unum” ups the ante on the already high stakes of the series. As the story unfolds, so does viewer intrigue. The episode has a light Christian worldview with strong moral, anti-communist elements. For example, a cross is depicted in a flyer about one of the characters, and a child says outright she doesn’t agree with communist principles. Sadly, though, lots of foul language and some heavy violence merit extreme caution for the “E PLURIBUS UNUM” episode of STRANGER THINGS.
