The theory suggests that Hopper is forced to work in a chain gang in Russia, but this is not the real Hopper. If we weren’t already questioning how Hoper survived in the first place, we are now being led to think it might not be him after all!

Could Hopper really be a clone?

Now, we wouldn’t really put it past the show that Hopper is a clone. The Netflix Original has pushed boundaries, with millions of us believing that Hopper was actually dead. The fantasy series manages to surprise us in numerous ways, so this theory could be true. Details from previous seasons technically support this theory and now we can’t get it out of our heads. Another theory has broken down how Hopper is alive, with details on how he has survived and now become the American prisoner.

The jam-packed final episode of season 3 seen a plethora of events occur, with different teams working on an individual task. Joyce, Murray, and Hopper are in charge of infiltrating the Russian Lab, dressing as agents. Someone has noticed that when Hopper becomes trapped and signals to Joyce to turn the key. This meant the machine exploded and Hopper disappears. But an eagle-eyed viewer has noticed that Joyce closes her eyes, which means Hopper could have saved himself. The question is, has Hopper been taken to the other side? And if he isn’t in the Upside-Down, do the Russians believe he is one of them as he was dressed as an agent? We need answers now!
