Rejoice, Stranger Things fans. The buzzy sci-fi series is returning in less than one month and we're gearing up to watch more spooky adventures in the town of Hawkins, Indiana. But last season's eight episodes were so jam-packed with action it's almost impossible to remember everything that went down. Plus, you may have even forgot about some of the major (and minor) players. Who is Terry Ives? A character who's possibly flying under your radar may be the key to Eleven's story.
When you think of Stranger Things, you probably immediately think Demogorgon, the Upside Down, and anxious Joyce Byers with that whole meme-able tangled Christmas lights situation. But there were so many twists and turns and elements that were integral to where the show stands now and who's involved. Terry Ives was an intriguing piece of the puzzle that is Eleven, her beginnings, and the truth behind Hawkins National Laboratory. You may recall she was the woman who Hopper visited when it was revealed she sued Dr. Brenner (AKA Eleven's "Papa") for kidnapping her daughter. This only opened up a Pandora's Box of information, including the possible revelation that that daughter, Jane, actually equals... who else? Eleven. Are you getting all this? OK, here are a few things we know about Terry Ives so Season 2 isn't all a big "what is happening?!" onslaught on your TV-watching brain.
