Real Life Comparisons
The fact that you might not be able to recall Eleven’s real name after watching a whole season (season 2, even) of Stranger Things isn’t exactly surprising. In a way, it mirrors her life outside of Hawkins National Laboratory—with her mother trying to hide her from The Government and The Lab trying to erase all memory of Jane.
We’re not saying you have psychokinetic powers; we are just saying that Stranger Things shows us how just because someone doesn’t talk much doesn’t mean they don’t have a lot to say. Embrace your inner eleven and get out there and make some noise! Just try not to freak out people with your mental abilities…that could be problematic.
