Stranger Things: Hopper’s Dead Daughter To Be ‘Primary Focus’ Of Season 2

David Harbour’s Chief Hopper in Stranger Things was a surprise character for a lot of fans. When he was initially introduced, I feared he would be the annoying cop who wouldn’t listen to a word Joyce was saying in regards to his missing son. However, he ended up following his gut, and ending up at the center of the whole fiasco.

Though while Hopper was a competent character, he was also a bit of a sad figure. When we first see him, he’s passed out in his trailer, and isn’t exactly the healthiest figures. The reason had to do with his grief following the loss of his daughter. In an interview with Moviefone back prior to the film’s release, Harbour stated that he felt the only way he could make it up to his daughter is by killing himself slowly through drugs and alcohol.

But by the end of the season, he seemed to be on the road to recovery at least somewhat. But that’s not to say the horrors of his past will just disappear. It sounds like Hopper’s daughter will still be addressed in the upcoming season of Stranger Things.

Speaking with TV Guide, David Harbour said:

“Hopper’s daughter will be the primary focus of Season 2, but not in the way that you think it will be. Hopper’s understanding of that relationship and Hopper’s understanding of being a father and of being a man grows deeper and deeper in Season 2, and we get a lot of time to explore what that is, but it won’t be in the literal way that you think it is. I don’t want to tell you any more than that because it’s good stuff.”

It’s a bit difficult to pick apart. As mentioned before, his daughter is dead, and we can understand if she’s the primary focus of his character, but it’s a bit strange that he seems to imply she’s the primary focus, period.

Well, that confusion may not be on accident, and according to the outlet, all the specifics regarding Hopper’s daughter are top secret. Does this mean her death somehow has to do with the Upside Down or all the other crazy goings-on in Hawkins? We’ll have to wait and see.

Stranger Things Season 2 hits Netflix on October 27, 2017.
