Stranger Things isn’t likely to appear on our screens for another two years, but it hasn’t stopped endless amounts of speculation about what’s in store – especially when the show’s writers use their official Twitter account to tease fans about what’s to come.
If you follow the Stranger Things writers on Twitter then you’ll know they tend to use 80s songs and film/tv references as a code to reveal tidbits of information about what’s to come for the D&D-loving gang, and the latest tidbit hints that everyone’s favourite girl is about to go ‘to the dark side’.
The writers gave the lyrics to “Cosmic Love” by Florence and The Machine, which goes, “And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat. I tried to find the sound but then it stopped, and I was in the darkness, so darkness I became.”
The song is clearly about someone who has something sad happen to them, so they lean more towards the darkness – and theorists on Reddit have deduced that they believe this could only be aimed towards Eleven.
Millie Bobbie Brown also once claimed that she wouldn’t be against playing a villain, but that it would make her sad to play Eleven as a villain, because she’s such a loved character.
