‘Stranger Things’: Is There a Secret Connection Between Will Byers and Vecna?
Share this @internewscast.com

Everything about the Upside Down’s “origin story” in Stranger Things Season 4 makes sense except one thing. When Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Steve (Joe Keery), Robin (Maya Hawke), and Eddie (Joseph Quinn) initially find themselves in the Upside Down in Stranger Things Season 4, they make the shocking discovery that “Upside Down Hawkins” is frozen in the past. Specifically on the date that Will Byers vanished: November 6, 1983.

Why is the Upside Down version of Hawkins stuck on that date? And more specifically, why was Will Hawkins the child Vecna stole — but didn’t initially kill, like, say, Barb (Shannon Purser) — in the first place?

You have to wonder with all that Will Byers and Henry Creel have in common, could that mean Will also has similar abilities to Eleven and Vecna? The only reason he doesn’t show them off is because he wasn’t pushed to, by emotional distress or laboratory experiments. And because he was born naturally, like Victor, and not through Project MK-Ultra, Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) never knew Will was out there.

Much like One took the neutral landscape of the Upside Down and transformed it into a Mind Flayer-ruled hellscape with his powers, could the copy of Hawkins in the Upside Down have been created by a terrified Will Byers desperately trying to go home? And could the reason we don’t know that Will did this is because he, like Eleven, repressed all memories of the traumatic ordeal?

Furthermore, we’ve learned that Brenner pushed Eleven to contact the Upside Down through the darkness. Isn’t it interesting that Will used light to reach his mother in our Hawkins? A technique the gang uses in Season 4 to great effect?

Was Will abducted because Vecna saw another child he could potentially connect with? And are they connected? Will it be Will Byers and not Eleven who eventually figures out how to destroy another naturally-born super-powered being? And will the difference between them be that Will was loved and Henry was not? Can Will figure out how to manipulate and control matter in the Upside Down in a way that Eleven hasn’t so far?

Or all these all insane questions coming from a person who woke up at the butt crack of dawn to binge four hours of TV for their job?!?!
