Stranger Things Season 2: Gaten Matarazzo on his theory that "Will has powers like Eleven"

Written by

Stranger Things Season 2 has a lot of questions to answer, one in particular being, 'What's going to happen to Will?!' Gaten Matarazzo has a theory and honestly, it's pretty darn cool.

Stranger Things Season 2 is shrouded in mystery, and as much as we love the brilliantly well-written characters, there are two in particular who we are concerned about. The first being Eleven, who disappeared after killing the monster who has caused so much terror to the citizens of Hawkins. The second is Will Byers, who coughed up something in the series finale, which looked terrifyingly like he had brought part of the monster that abducted him back to the real world. Fan favourite Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, spoke with AMC about what could happen to Will in the upcoming season. He mused, "Will has powers like Eleven, but he doesn't know how to control them and channel them. This is why they're like 'How was the monster attracted to Will, why did he follow Will when he wasn't bleeding? My theory is that he was attracted because he felt the sense that someone had powers, followed him, took him."

Noah Schnapp, who plays Will on Stranger Things, has in own theory that "baby monsters" are incubating inside of his character. Matarazzo however, took his theory a step further by questioning if two of our most vulnerable characters could actually be the most powerful. He explained, "Maybe Will is more powerful than Eleven! Maybe like, Will and Eleven will have a power face off like Anakin and Obi-Wan." If Matarazzo's theory comes to pass it undoubtedly means that one of the two will either suffer forever in the Upside Down, or worse.

We here at melty have few questions of our own for the Duffer brothers, for example, what does the egg Joyce and Hopper found in the Upside Down belong to? When will Nancy dump Steve for Jonathan? And finally, will Mike be able to take Eleven to the Snowball?! Dan Cohen has promised big things to come in Stranger Things Season 2, and we cannot wait to see what it has in store for our favourite characters! What do you think will happen to Will in Season 2?
