Questions we have after season three dropped

4 Crazy Stranger Things Theories That Just Might Be True

Netflix's hit show "Stranger Things" brought us a great third season this past Independence Day and fans are dying to know what's going to happen in season four.

Though it's probably too soon to tell, here are four theories that could possibly end up being true.

Warning: There will be spoilers for season three in this article.

1. Eleven's powers are tied to the Mind Flayer


It is quite the coincidence that El's powers go away when the Mind Flayer is "defeated" and the bridge to the Upside Down is closed.

Eleven has had probably the most contact with the Upside Down and the monsters that reside there, so I wouldn't be surprised if her abilities were tied to it too.

This means that in season four, if they were to close the bridge for good, she would become a normal girl.

2. Dr. Brenner is a Russian prisoner


During the after-credits scene of the season finale, we see a Russian base with guards mentioning an American prisoner.

Though many think this American is Chief Hopper, many also think it's Dr. Brenner - Eleven's "Papa" and the former director of the Hawkins lab.

Though it seemed like the Demogorgon killed him in season one, it has been confirmed by the writers that he is in fact still alive, making him the more likely candidate.

3. Hopper is alive and in the Upside Down


In "Stranger Things," it's basically a rule that if you don't see a body, they're probably not dead.

Though it seems like Hopper was done for when Joyce closed the door to the Upside Down, there's a lack of a body. Also, the camera lingers a bit on the crack in the wall closing up after the dramatic door-closing scene, implying that Hopper could have slipped through the door while it was happening.

This would mean that Hopper's alive (though definitely not safe) in the Upside Down.

4. Season four will deal with the Chernobyl disaster


The nuclear energy disaster definitely fits the timeline of the show, having happened in 1986, while the third season of "Stranger Things" took place in 1985.

Some think that the Russians will open another door to the Upside Down at Chernobyl, saying that it was a nuclear accident to cover up what really happened.

Also, with the introduction of Soviet agents and scientists this season, they will definitely need to address it in the show.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?
