11 ways the night tube resembles the 'Stranger Things' parallel universe

It’s looking like we’ll be waiting about a year for season two of 'Stranger Things', and we Londoners aren’t sure we can cope. Luckily, the night tube is extending to the Jubilee line on Friday to help us get our fix of the Upside Down whenever we need it. Allow us to explain. 

 

1. Everything looks the same… but different

It looks like the tube, and it smells like the tube, but there’s this weird, eerie atmosphere that can only occur just before the clubs let out. Brace yourself, something is coming.

2. You should probably go in wearing a hazmat suit

What was that statistic about 20 minutes on the Northern line being the equivalent to one cigarette? Yup, it’s time to suit up.

3. There are dangers at every turn


Mind the gap. Mind the Demogorgon. Who knows what you’ll find down there?

4. It’s somehow scarier when the lights flicker

Lights flickering during busy daytime tube = not even noticeable. Lights flickering during lonely night time tube = the beginning of a horror movie.

5. You’re bound to have an encounter with that guy

If you’re lucky enough to be caught in the inevitable drunk carriage, be prepared to awkwardly laugh your way through the loud yelling that you don’t quite understand, and join in with shenanigans in the name of being a good sport.

6. It took forever for us to get down there


…longer, in fact, than it took for the 'Stranger Things' cast to find and get into the parallel universe. Just saying.

7. There are often strange substances to avoid

Whether it’s Demogorgon slime or a half-eaten kebab, always choose the seat furthest from the spillage.

8. Fashion is no longer relevant

 

By the time the precision eyeliner has worn off and the dancing sweat has soaked through, people begin to look a lot less ‘pixie crop and vintage dress’, and a lot more ‘someone get Eleven a new outfit, she’s been wearing that all season’.

9. You should pack for every possibility  

You never know what you’ll face down there; stag parties, creepy weirdos asking to come home with you, totally nice regular people who are just like you but that you want to avoid talking to at all costs. Back off, conversationalists. Night time is no time for chit-chat.

10. Announcements become hilariously casual  

Those station announcers really go wild when they think everyone is either drunk or asleep.

11. Late night snacking is necessary for survival 

A cold Gregg’s cheese and onion pasty, waffles straight from the box – do what you need to do down there to make it home. No one will judge.

What’s going to happen to Will Byers and Eleven? When will the night tube be extended to other lines? So many unanswered questions, all we can do now is wait…
