"Stranger Things" producer-director Shawn Levy couldn't be prouder of the fact that audiences have become obsessed with the Netflix show just as it is.
But when he talked to Business Insider on Tuesday, he revealed how an important moment in the finale of the first season almost didn't happen — and without it, we'd be going into the just-announced season two with different implications.
At the close of chapter eight, "The Upside Down," police chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) brings food from his station's Christmas party and leaves it in a box in the woods, along with a few Eggos. The short but crucial moment indicates that Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), the girl with psychokinetic abilities that saved the town from a monster and who has since vanished, could still be alive.
But according to Levy, in the original script, Hopper does not leave Eggos.
