We are approaching frightening times in Hawkins, Indiana.

In a few weeks, we will learn exactly what happened to Eleven in Stranger Things. Until then, Netflix continues to disclose new information about what we can expect from season 2.

The twitter account for Stranger Things just unveiled some new titles for the upcoming episodes. Some clues about what each episode will contain might be gleaned from the titles. A few of them have to do with classic video games of the period and obviously, the later chapters would be too spoiler-filled to reveal at this time. The titles include:

Chapter 1: Mad Max / Dragon’s Lair
Chapter 2: Trick or Treat Freak
Chapter 3: The Pollywog
Chapter 4: Will the Wise
Chapter 5: Dig Dug
Chapter 6: The Spy
Chapter 7, 8, and 9: ???

Millions are awaiting the new season of Stranger Things. It is easily one of Netflix’s biggest sensations. The story takes place in the early 80s when stories from Stephen King, Steven Spielberg, and Ridley Scott were all the rage. Well, everything old is new again since all those directors and stories are in fad once again with IT and Blade Runner in theaters. Stranger Things loves taking specific story beats from classic horror and reusing it for its needs.

Last September, The Duffer Brothers teased the titles for the upcoming episodes, but since fans were too close in guessing exactly what they meant, almost all the titles have been changed. They talked with Entertainment Weekly about having to change the titles in February. They said, “Some of them are changing. Some of them we didn’t put because these people are smart on the f—ing internet. You’ve seen it with Westworld — they figured it out! I’ve seen videos analyzing the chapter titles and they’re right on a lot.” Audiences have certainly gotten smarter at figuring out all the clues, something that has been going on in years for such shows as Lost, Twin Peaks, and Westworld.

Stranger Things 2 hits Netflix on October 27th.
