Cutting to the present day (within the Stranger Things timeline, that is), Dustin, Lucas, Max, Steve, and Robin break into Creel House searching for clues for something yet unknown, and the teaser ends with a shot of a grandfather clock in the attic, which then appears in the Upside Down version of the house, with the glass breaking at the end.”
