Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has addressed a popular theory regarding the future of her character Eleven.
Netflix’s Stranger Things 3 ended on a very bittersweet note that saw Hopper possibly dead and the Byers family moving away from Hawkins. Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven also joined the Byers family on this move, which was quite unexpected. Seeing as the show is renewed for a fourth season, it’s hard to imagine that Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven and Will Byers won’t return to Hawkins, the iconic setting for the supernatural show.
Another interesting piece of information that Stranger Things 3 ended on was that Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven was bitten by the Mind Flayer. Throughout the first two seasons of Stranger Things, we’ve seen Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven as an overpowered character who’s been able to stop the supernatural forces in the show. However, in Stranger Things 3, we saw her power tested exceptionally.
In an interview with Elle, Millie Bobby Brown discussed a popular Stranger Things theory that suggests that the Mind Flayer’s flesh remains inside of Eleven and that it will corrupt her. Essentially, the theory suggests that Eleven will be the villain in Stranger Things 4. Millie Bobby Brown reacted positively to this theory, suggesting it would be pretty cool. She didn’t spill the beans but she was quite encouraging of it. You can read her response to the Stranger Things theory below.
“I kind of like it! I’m into it. I wasn’t playing it like that. We don’t know what happens in season 4. I definitely don’t. In scenes after the Mind Flayer grabbed me, I wasn’t playing it as I was infected. I was definitely playing it as normal as possible. And maybe that’s the reason they didn’t tell me. To make it as real as possible. I don’t know. Those theories freak me out a bit. Because I’m like, “Oh god, that could genuinely be true.” And what if she is the villain? That would be so cool. Wouldn’t that be cool? I’d love to be the villain, but then I also wouldn’t because Eleven is perfect. It would suck.”
This is definitely an interesting theory and it would be almost unprecedented to see the hero turn into a full-on villain. It would also certainly add more weight to Eleven’s character arc and make it all the more emotionally tolling on her friends in the show.
What are your thoughts on this Stranger Things theory? Do you think Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven will become evil in Stranger Thing season four? Let us know in the comments!
In the meantime, fans can re-watch the third season of Stranger Things on Netflix.
