Season 3 of Stranger Things gave a lot to take in. Overwhelmed with what had happened at the end of the season, a Reddit user came up with a crazy theory. Surprisingly, the theory makes a hell lot of sense. The theory was enough to convince us that our favorite character from season 3 may be the villain in Stranger Things season 4.
This Reddit theory convinced us that Eleven might be the villain in Stranger Things season 4. The Reddit user also gave us some valid points to make us convinced. This just might sound very corny but here we go. We need to go back in the most recent season a little to go over the plot.
In the last episode of season 3, the Mind Flayer harshly grabs Eleven by her leg. Luckily, her friends end up saving her. However, this was not it. A part of the Mind Flayer gets stuck in Eleven’s leg and when Mike pulls it out, she screams in pain.
Practically if we see, the Mind Flayer basically bit El’s leg. This means she may have been infected. If we look at the show’s history, the bitten ‘hosts’ ultimately come under the control of the Mind Flayer. What the theory is trying to tell us is that there is a possibility that Eleven may be under the Mind Flayer’s control.
Now that Eleven’s psychokinetic powers are gone, we are totally convinced that the Mind Flayer is controlling her because he shows what Eleven is truly capable of. This theory makes so much sense but if this actually comes to be true, fans will lose their minds!!!
