The Best Fan Theories For Season 2 Of 'Stranger Things'

Almost everyone has been captivated by the story of "Stranger Things." I haven't met a single person who has sat down to watch it and had anything bad to say. Something about the nostalgia of the '80s and the mystery of the plot keeps us coming back episode after episode. If you haven't watched it yet, don't read this article: spoilers will ensue. All of us binge-watchers have been impatiently waiting for the new season to arise and with the second season officially confirmed, I think it's time we dive into some great fan theories.

1. Will Byers is the new portal.

Do you remember the whole flea metaphor? In the final episode we see Will flashing in and out of the Upside Down. All the time he spent there could not have been good. Perhaps the consequence is that he can never really leave--hence new portal.

2. Will Byers is the new monster.

Do you remember one of the final scenes in the finale episode? I suggest you re-watch it below. If you recall the first episode of the series is where we were introduced to the Demogorgan and in the game (and in real life) it got Will. In this final scene we are introduced to a new monster: the Thessalhydra, and guess what? It has snake heads. Sound familiar? Remember all the weird slug snake things Will was throwing up? Sounds like some serious foreshadowing to me.


3. Hopper is working for the government.

According to TheWrap.com, Hopp is infiltrating the government to uncover its secrets. How else would he have known to leave Eleven those eggos in the end? Does he know something we don't? Which leads me to the most obvious theory that:

4. Eleven is still alive.

Please let this be true. Why else would Hopp be leaving her favorite snack around? Also we never see a body, she just kind of disappears. So I support this theory.

5. What about the other 10?

Speaking of our Eleven, can we be introduced to some of the others before her?

6. Eleven is the monster.

I'm going to conclude with this video from Business Insider, because it will blow your mind. Enjoy.
