The other thread is a general discussion so this thread is meant to discuss Season 3 and what happened.
I didn't like Season 3 as much as the first 2 seasons; I thought this one dragged too much until the last two episodes.
Who is the American in the Russian prison?
Hopper? He was looking around as though trying to find an escape.
I hope so since Season 4 is going to have a major Russian storyline. Hopper was always my favorite adult.
Or it could be Dr. Brenner since we really don't know where he went.
I also felt the connection between all the kids was not as tight as before.

@lmt Dustin is my favorite among the younger boys.
Steve "The Hair" Harrington. LOL
Poor kid took such a beating!!
Erica played a great part, I agree. Somebody new to expand the show.

This season doesn’t have the same momentum as the first two did. Some episodes just dragged on. As far as the unknown prisoner, I’m guessing the writers want us to think it’s Hopper. I’m hoping it is. The storyline this year could have used some fine tuning and the plot this season isn’t that great.

@Cakers Thanks for starting this thread! I just finished watching season 3 and I liked it as a whole. What bothered me slightly was that the characters of Joyce & Hopper seemed to have been "dumbed down" a little just for the sake of humor. I think the pairing of Steve & Robin's characters were fantastic. In my opinion they both have great acting futures ahead!

I agree with the thought season 1 and 2 were much stronger than season 3. The best part of season 3 was Steve and Dustin! They cracked me up, but also stayed within the story line.

My guess is that since David Harbour, who plays Hopper, has had big film opportunities recently, they may have ended it that way to give him an out. A lot of tv series have actors sign 3 season contracts, so he may not have decided yet whether he’ll be returning, Another example of this would be Downtown Abbey. Dan Stevens (Matthew Crowley) and Siobhan Finneran (O’Brien) decided not to renew after their 3 seasons were up.
Perhaps Winona Ryder, Noah Schnapp, and Charlie Heaton won’t return next season, either. They drove off into the sunset at the end. Joyce isn’t much without Hopper, Will was pretty much set dressing for the whole season, and Charlie Heaton is in a new superhero movie which may end up taking off and having sequels.
If they wait another two years for the next season, the kids are going to be between 17 and 19 years old. Maybe they’ll all move in together and go to the same college like “The Facts of Life.”
