He is found and captured by Russian soldiers who were keen to make him pay for ruining their US Operation.

The cop is forced to endure weeks of torture at the hand of his captors who want information on Joyce.

They know Joyce had helped him to close the gate to the Upside Down and want to know who she was.

However, he resists their torture and is forced by the military to help build a railway with other prisoners.

Do Hopper and Eleven reunite in Stranger Things season 4?

One of the highlights of Stranger Things season 3 was the sweet father and daughter relationship between Hopper and Eleven.

However, in season 4 we see Eleven heartbreakingly mourn the loss of Hopper, who she believes to be dead.

So do the pair reunite?

Unfortunately, Hopper and Eleven don’t reunite in the first part of season 4.

Eleven doesn’t even know that Hopper is still alive!

However as Joyce embarks on a mission to find Hopper in Russia, fans have hope that Hopper will see Eleven again in volume 2.
