We need to talk about Hopper's rage problem in 'Stranger Things 3'

Warning: This post contains mild plot spoilers about Stranger Things 3.
Stranger Things 3 is being largely hailed as a triumph. It jumpstarted the narrative, gave some much-needed credit to its female characters, and is generally just a good ol' time (except for the Flayed, R.I.P.). 
But there's one baffling gap, and that's Jim Hopper's terrifying anger management issues that build to a boiling point from the season's very opening. Hopper is a rage monster almost as volatile as the Mind Flayer, and it's not okay.
