With less than a week to go until the release of Stranger Things — arguably the most watched show on television right now — the stars of the Netflix’s hit nostalgia-soaked sci-fi are in full promotion mode, giving new soundbites and interviews seemingly every day.

And while promotional interviews are generally very run-of-the-mill, because Stranger Things cast consists primarily of naive teenagers and the notoriously friendly David Harbour, the quotes from the Stranger Things cast have been far juicier than the average pre-release soundbites.

Take David Harbour — who stars as Police Chief Jim Hopper — for example: he’s held nothing back when it comes to his opinions of this upcoming third season, particularly when it comes to the season 3 finale.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly prior to the season 3 premiere, Harbour revealed that he believes that final episode of this upcoming third season is both the most emotional and the greatest episode the series has ever produced.

“[It’s] the greatest episode we’ve ever shot. It’s so emotionally powerful because you’re not expecting what happens to happen. I don’t think we’ve ever shot anything more moving,” Harbour told Entertainment Weekly.

Harbour’s quote can be taken one of two ways: either something heartwarmingly lovely closes out the season or something soul-crushingly brutal happens.

Considering we’ve long theorized that a major character is going to ultimately bite the dust this season, we have a baaadddd feeling that Harbour’s comments are foreshadowing devastation.
