Simple:

The connection is still open because there is a 'live' monster in the freezer connected to the upside down.

Also, I liked the side episode telling the story of 11 finding 8.

But I thought the monster wifi signal was lost because the default gateway was closed?

I had previously read a review that totally savaged the episode about 008 so my expectations were really low.  Consequently, it beat my expectations and I enjoyed the episode.  In a weekly series that would have really pissed me off but, when you have access to every single episode at once, a detour from the main story isn't so bad.

Also, pretty sure they established all the demodogs died when the gate was closed.

Also, that was a reference to "the gate" right?

Was it alive? I thought it was dead. You'd think if it were alive they'd decapitate it or something, not leave it in their friend's mom's fridge to maul her later. I'm pretty sure El killed it.

I think the overarching monster at the end was just an 80s horror trope. The show was created as an anthology, like the Halloween movies, but the first was so popular they brought everyone back for a second, because money. Which shows because most of the story was spent on the first season and 11 became the Superman dilemma. Each season as the monsters get bigger and more powerful, she has to get more powerful too. If they're smart, this is the end of Hawkins and they'll move on to other stories in the universe, which they've already set up.

I think it was a reminder that the upside down never goes away, a metaphor for personal demons perhaps?

Exactly. Whether we get another chapter of Hawkins or not, it's the reminder that evil exists and is waiting to get back in.
It would be a shame if they just fought it all over again though

Since the show centers around those children, I don't know how they can just get out of Hawkins.  It's not like they'll all up and move to Maine together.








Yes, the choice of Maine was intended as a King reference.

I think most people, myself included, would be annoyed if Season 3 didn't involve the same cast.

Plus they basically confirmed that the same cast would be involved next season, in the "Beyond Stranger Things" after show.

The idea of an anthology series could work, but it could also tank like Season 2 of "True Detectives"

Papa will be back and 8 won't (My opinion)

I'm invisible??? LOL

I finally finished it.
Knew there'd be an opening for 3.
Liked how they ended it.

What is the opening for 3 exactly? They ended with the monster watching, but that's it.

Sesame Street does some pretty clever parodies. This one is no exception:
