Dmitri Antonov, aka in the character of “Enzo”, is a prominent character from the season 4 finale of Stranger Things. The surface is played in the role of Tom Wlaschiha. 1
Dmitri was previously a Russian correctional officer in Kamchatka who assisted jailed Jim Hopper in finding a way to escape, up until he is himself detained for treason and has to join forces together with Hopper along with his fellow prisoners Joyce Byers and Murray Bauman to take on his former employer, the Soviet Union.
Dmitri is about 40 years of age. In the past, he got married and had a child named Mikhail. His uniform signifies that he’s a member of the Soviet Ministry of Internal Affairs and has an honorary rank called “starting”, a senior soldier roughly equivalent to the level of a significant sergeant in the U.S. Army.
At one point, Dmitri was approached by an imprisoned Jim Hopper and was bribed to help him find ways to escape from the prison and into America. United States. By their agreement, Dmitri would help him escape the prison and arrange transportation back to America. At the beginning of their plan, Dmitri, who was under the pseudonym Enzo and a pseudonym Enzo, delivered to Joyce Byers an envelope containing the Russian doll and a note to inform Joyce Byers of the fact that Hopper remains alive. They eventually connected via payphones. He told her to meet Yuri Ismail in Alaska and bring $40,000 cash. In exchange, Yuri would fly her to Russia to find Hopper, who had escaped prison by then and was waiting to be picked up at the rendezvous location. Joyce had already informed a friend from Hopper Murray Bauman about the situation and travelled to Alaska with Hopper, ensuring that they followed Dmitri’s directions.
Hopper discovered an opportunity to strike against an insecure corrections officer. After pinning him down and blowing the guards around him, Hopper escaped by snowmobile and headed to Yuri’s warehouse, where he fled to hide. However, everyone is stunned when it becomes clear that Yuri is entirely out of his plan to maximize profits for himself after informing the prison warden about Hopper and Dmitri’s plan. Police capture Hopper. Yuri also narcotics Joyce and Murray, two Americans sought by KGB and then travelled to Russia together as his prisoner. Dmitri was later arrested for treason and eventually became an inmate at the prison he used to work at.
At the same time, Dmitri and Hopper are required to collaborate to discover a new method to escape. They are ultimately chosen to be part of an upcoming fight with The Russian Demogorgon. To prepare, Hopper aantagonizedDmitri until the latter attacked him. Hopper profited from their subsequent war with guards, snags alcohol and a lighter out of the other, and plans to utilize this against Dmitri. In a prison cell, Hopper vented out his displeasure with the idea that he’s an unlucky person to those whom he loves and even believed that he was the one who was responsible for the death of his daughter. Dmitri spoke to Hopper and revealed that he was married and had a daughter that he has. A group of other men then joins them for a ‘final meal’, at which they are treated to a feast of food ahead of their clash with the Demogorgon later that day. As Dmitri attempts to inspire the soldiers to stay together to come out winning, Hopper reveals the morbid nature of the food, explaining that they’re getting the food to ensure they can be healthy enough to feed the Demogorgon.
Dmitri, Hopper, and other men are taken to the arena the following day. Hopper overlooks that Joyce Murray and Joyce Murray are watching as they defeat Yuri and enter the prison to rescue their friend. When Hopper was released from jail, the Demogorgon was released, and the entire group started to fight it, which ended with many dying within the first few minutes. Hopper employed the alcohol and lighter to create the flame and then used it to keep the Demogorgon from returning. In the control room, Joyce and Murray took control of the room and tried to unlock the gate to the arena. When the remaining members of the group are dead, Dmitri desperately works to open the entrance of the way while Hopper defeats the Demogorgon. Hopper and Dmitri managed and met Joyce and Murray on the opposite side. Dmitri observed while Hopper and Joyce were embraced by each other.
The foursome huddled within the controls room, searched for an exit from the prison. As they left through the underground sewer, they found an unidentified laboratory with adolescent Demogorgons known as Demodogs, most likely being developed or bred for the personal use of Russians. The group escaped via the tunnel and eventually arrived at the surface, far from that prison’s confines. The group needed transportation into the United States. Dmitri forced Yuri to take the group to the final destination, a helicopter named Katinka that had long been inactive. Yuri claimed that it required some minor adjustments before functioning again, even though he started to sabotage the vehicle. In the meantime, for the car to be repaired, the group demanded Dmitri make a phone call to the United States claiming he had a “sick relative”. When they got a phone return call, Hopper and Joyce were informed that their children were in danger. They realized they could help them by taking down their Demodogs and the Russian Demogorgon in prison. They decided to return to their homes, leaving Dmitri to care for Yuri.
After an extended period, Dmitri called Yuri out on his sabotage of Katinka. Yuri claimed he owed Americans nothing. Instead of resorting to threats, Dmitri reminded Yuri of his history of heroics and the increasing threat to the United States that he claimed would eventually spread to Russia. He added that Yuri was a war hero and that in refusing to help the troops return home to combat the more significant danger, he could be ruining the world and being against the values he was a proponent of, and then abandoning him. Yuri eventually caved up and started working on the construction of the helicopter.
After having defeated the final one of the Demodogs and the Russian Demogorgon in the jail, Murray, Joyce, and Hopper were delighted to discover Dmitri and Yuri coming down into them in a functional Katinka.
Although Hopper and Joyce were proven that they were brought back to their home in the United States following their final escape, Dmitri, Murray and Yuri’s journeys aren’t known.
Personality and character traits
Dmitri can be described to be “smart and charming” and is known for his dry sense of humour. In light of his willingness to help Hopper in his attempt to escape Kamchatka and his desire to help Hopper escape, he appears not to be a person of any particular loyalty to his country’s government or the tasks. But, Dmitri seems loyal to his people and his family, as evidenced by the moment he publicly confronts Yuri Ismaylov by explaining how Vecna and the monsters of The Upside Down would kill their family members if they were not stopped. Additionally, Dmitri has a cheerful disposition and is willing to take on opportunities and risks, which shows that he’s a strong man. Also, he is honourable because he is impressed by Hopper’s strength and perseverance and holds his word with Hopper as he calls Yuri out for not having a sense of honour.
- Multilingualism: Dmitri can speak both Russian, which is his first language, and English, as well as using English to talk to Jim Hopper, Joyce Byers and Murray Bauman.
- Reflexes In the fight between prisoners and their opponent, the Russian Demogorgon, Dmitri uses quick reflexes to move away from the way.
The wife is not named.
It needs to be discovered what the relationship between Dmitri’s wife is.
According to Dmitri, the man once enjoyed a great rapport with his son Mikhail. However, the two fell from one another. However, Dmitri loves his son and hopes for all the best for Mikhail.
Following Hopper’s arrest and detention, Dmitri took note of Hopper’s fame for his role as an American prisoner. He offered to assist Hopper’s escape as a reward for his release, which Hopper was willing to accept. The initial step of their loose partnership was Dmitri contacting Joyce Byers by sending her a parcel with an envelope and a doll, telling Joyce Byers that Hopper had returned. In contact with him through the payphone, Joyce was meant to travel to Alaska with several thousand dollars to meet a man named Yuri, who would fly the girl to Russia and then return Hopper. Finding an opportunity eventually, Hopper blows up several guards and then escapes by a snowmobile that takes him to the rendezvous spot, leaving Dmitri confused. Joyce, as well as Murray, are brought to Alaska. They are then taken into prison by Yuri, who has advised the warden of his prison that Dmitri committed treachery, ignoring the plan to maximize profits for Hopper.
As a prisoner in prison he used to guard, Dmitri and Hopper are called upon to devise a new plan to escape. They are ultimately selected along with prisoners to join a struggle against the prison’s infamous Demogorgon. Hopper believes that his time is dwindling and is adamant to Dmitri, telling him that he believes that he is a curse for everyone whom he loves. He also believes he is the one who indirectly caused the demise of his daughter despite being aware of the dangers. Hopper’s words caused Dmitri to see Hopper differently and mention that he’s a father too. On the night before a Demogorgon battle, at the last meal of the group, Dmitri inspires the rest of the group to work together to take on the beast. The next day, just as the battle gets underway, Dmitri and Hopper are the only remaining prisoners who work with each other to get out of the cage and then be joined by Murray and Joyce in starting an attack at the prison.
