But in a surprise post-credits scene at the tail end of the episode, it seems like the guy might not be dead, after all. The short clip takes place in Russia, where the Soviets have torn another hole in the dimensional fabric or whatever and have brought the Demogorgon back to our reality. During the scene, one Russian soldier references a prisoner they call “the American"—likely Hopper himself, unless Barb is about to make the biggest surprise comeback of all time.


Last week, Entertainment Weekly caught up with David Harbour, who plays Hopper on the show, to ask him if the Hopper in Russia theory was correct. Harbour kept it pretty coy with EW, saying that he has “no idea,” but according to SlashFilm, Harbour totally does know—and confirmed that Hopper was alive in an interview. Per SlashFilm:


“This is the question I’m going to have to dance around–” I began, only for Harbour to interrupt me and ask, “The ending?” “Right,” I said. “Is there a way you can talk about the future of Hopper without…” I trailed off here, only for Harbour to ask: “Well, did you see the post-credits scene?

 I had, of course. And so I straight-up asked: is that Hopper behind the door? According to Harbour, yes. Throughout the season, the main Russian baddie refers to Hopper as “the American”, and having another Russian refer to the mysterious prisoner in the same way was the big giveaway.
