Warning: spoilers forward for Stranger Things Season 2.
Season 2 of Netflix’s smash hit Stranger Things premiered on October 27, and an entire lot of followers lastly obtained to examine again in with what’s been taking place in Hawkins. The second season launched a monster so large and incomprehensible that the Demogorgon appears virtually tiny as compared, and in contrast to the Demogorgon, the Mind Flayer was nonetheless alive and energetic by the ultimate scene. In reality, the ultimate scene featured the Shadow Monster within the Upside Down, looming menacingly over Hawkins Middle School. While the Stranger Things children have been adorably dancing the night time away on the long-awaited Snow Ball, the Mind Flayer nonetheless appeared to have taking on their dimension on his thoughts, regardless of Eleven closing the gate in his face.
There are nonetheless numerous questions in regards to the Mind Flayer as of the top of Season 2. Fortunately, CinemaBlend’s personal Conner Schwerdtfeger was capable of converse with Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer at a Master Clbad occasion at Chapman University. When requested if the Mind Flayer may have a vendetta towards Eleven, the Duffers had this to say:
Matt Duffer: Another actually good query. I do not know. No, no, no. It’s sort of the very first thing, the place you see him on the finish of the present purposely coming nose to nose along with her.
Ross Duffer: And the concept he did not know Eleven existed, a lot much less somebody with this type of energy, with a purpose to hold him out. So then with that closing shot, we wished to trace at is possibly, yeah this factor continues to be there and it is not thrilled with the way in which occasions occurred.
Matt Duffer: It’s a little bit little bit of the Harry Potter factor, when it comes to ‘oh that is the one one who can cease me?’
The Mind Flayer was dominating the nice guys of Stranger Things Season 2 from the very starting till nearly the very finish, and one of the best they may say was just about that solely Bob had been killed… till Eleven strolled into the Byers home after dispatching the Demodogs that had been despatched to kill her buddies. The recreation modified as soon as Eleven reunited with Hopper, Mike, and the others, and there is not any manner they might have trapped the Mind Flayer again within the Upside Down if Eleven had determined to simply keep in Chicago with Kali in Season 2’s most divisive episode.
The Mind Flayer has each cause to be sad with how Eleven turned the tide within the finale. According to the Duffer brothers, the ultimate showdown revealed to the Mind Flayer that the Hawkins crew has a really highly effective ace within the gap, and she or he simply so occurs to be a 13-year-old lady. In that closing showdown when Eleven went to shut the gate on the Mind Flayer, there was a transparent second when the monster confronted her and obtained an excellent take a look at her. Given that she was having fun with Mike holding his promise on the Snow Ball in Hawkins Middle on the finish of the finale, it stands to cause that the Mind Flayer was looming over the Upside Down center faculty due to her.
Of course, the gate was fairly clearly shut within the Season 2 finale, as confirmed by the sudden deaths of all of the Demodogs nonetheless in Hawkins, so the Mind Flayer would not have entry to El or any of the others in the intervening time. That stated, the Duffer brothers stated this in regards to the Mind Flayer presumably returning:
Ross Duffer: Nothing is ever closing in Stranger Things.
Matt Duffer: It’s science fiction. I imply, who is aware of? Who is aware of? Anything is feasible. It’s been opened up. The door’s been shut, however i suppose the query is–
Ross Duffer: The Mind Flayer continues to be on the opposite aspect and he is proper there in The Upside Down, so the query is ‘Are characters protected?’ And they’re for a time.
It sounds just like the characters will at the very least be okay from the top of Season 2 to the start of Season three. Maybe the Mind Flayer may have found out a manner out of the Upside Down by the point the motion picks up once more within the subsequent batch of episodes. Then once more, if Stranger Things does go the Harry Potter route with the Mind Flayer vs. Eleven, possibly the following installment will characteristic a model new villain whereas the Mind Flayer is off-screen to bide his time, a la Prisoner of Azkaban. Stranger Things does love its homages.
