While we all wait for any news about the fourth season of Stranger Things, fans are keeping busy by creating theories to predict what's to come, while the show's cast members are teasing what they can. And besides the popular theories about how Jim Hopper will (hopefully) return, many fans are focusing on a pivotal moment for Eleven.
By the Season 3 finale, Eleven lost her powers. Fans were of course shocked to see it, and began speculating what exactly happened to cause the major change. A theory that has gone around a bunch on the internet is that when the Mind Flayer infected her leg, it actually possessed her, taking her powers with it. That means that in Season 4, El could actually be the villain, controlled by the evil creature.
And now, Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, is weighing in. According to Cosmopolitan, the 15-year-old British actress told Elle, "I kind of like it! I’m into it," before clarifying, "I wasn’t playing it like that. We don’t know what happens in Season 4. I definitely don’t."
Millie continued on, thinking aloud about the possibility of becoming the next big bad. "Those theories freak me out a bit. Because I’m like, ‘Oh god, that could genuinely be true,'" she admitted. "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."
Eleven is perfect, but we can't lie...she would make a pretty badass monster. With no release date in sight for Stranger Things Season 4, we'll just be theorizing El's next chapter in the meantime.
