Stranger Things season four may not have been officially announced by Netflix, but this hasn’t stopped fans from theorising over what will happen.The third run of the popular show ended in heartbreak with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) moving away from Hawkins, Indiana with her sons and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) six months after the death of Jim Hopper (David Harbour).Despite Harbour’s recent comments making it seem like his time on the show is up, many are hoping that several cryptic hints are teasing that his character is still alive.Whatever happens, trouble will find the characters in the fourth season – and Reddit user weedmonkey666 has come up with a theory that positions someone very surprising as the primary villain.Remember the gruesome scene where the characters had to pull a part of the Mindflayer out of Eleven’s leg? The theory goes that this actually infected her and she’ll spend the majority of season four under its spell in the same way that we’ve seen Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) and Billy Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery) be in previous episodes.This could explain why Eleven is unable to use her powers. we’re led to believe it’s due to her grief over Hopper’s death, but maybe there’s a more disturbing reason for it.You can find a compilation of everything we know about season four – from the returning cast to loads of other exciting fan theories – here.
