Eleven know she needs to get to Hawkins but it's impossible.
Argyle takes them to a pizza stop and they use the pizza dough freezer as a sensory tank to let her access the Upside Down.
While this is happening, everyone else in Hawkins is fighting back, trying to make sure there's a way forward for everyone.
Vecna comes for Max and Lucas tries to help.
Jason shows up and a deadly fight ensues. He wants Lucas to bring Max out of the catatonic state.
Eleven arrives in Max's dream and goes to war with Vecna. However, Vecna gets the upper hand and starts the process of killing Max, leading to a big turn of events.
Eleven manages to defeat Vecna, alongside Nancy and the others, who are fighting his physical form, but he escapes.
Eleven can't accept Max is dead and restarts her heart, but she's in a coma, and the doctors don't think she'll make it.
Everyone rounds up at the Sheriff cabin to prepare to hide Eleven, but Hopper and Joyce show up.
Will is worried because he says he can feel Vecna and knows he's coming.
They all realize something is off when it starts snowing. They realize it's killing everything and when they look out into the open, Hawkins is in flames.
