When Joyce (Winona Ryder) goes looking for Will (Noah Schnapp) at Castle Byers in the first episode and has a flashback, the password to get in is 'Radagast'. This refers to one of the five wizards (Gandalf the Gray, Saruman the White, Alatar and Pallando the two blue wizards, and Radagast the Brown) in Lord of the Rings, and is one of many references to the books throughout the series. Only Saruman, Gandalf, and Radagast appear in the movies.
