    My theory. Eleven is hoppers daughter. Jane HOPPER and and officer HOPPeR. His kid got taken by the lab and they faked her death. The hospital she died and looks similar to the one will head his therapy appointment which also looks similar to the hospital where the derma dogs took over which was the Harkins loud.The lab changed her name bc they knew hopper would eventually investigate. They shaved her head. When is kid has the freak out i think she first experience of her powers. She looked confused and stunned. The last name “Hopper” comes up many times with different people so i think they are all connected. I’m sorry if it doesn’t make sense I was watching and writing at the same time.

    I mean dustin never specifically said "I like max". When talking to ste he never actually mentioned her name so haha maybe he never liked her anyway after all.

    How does all the stuff in the upside down got to get there ? Was It build in the same way like in our 'universe' or did it just popup when its made on our side??

    I have a theory. 11 is Hopper's daughter. Kay so I myself have only seen the first episode of the second season but all of the first season, and 11 looks like Hopper's daughter. Not only that but she shows signs of brain caner when she uses mass amounts of her power. Her nose bleeds and its almost like she black out and her vision becomes blurry. So my theory is that when Hopper's daughter was about to die after starting kemo the US mind expanding experiment to find another world (The upside down) they took Hopper's daughter and through years of kemo tharapy and the best doctors. She began in the experiments where she excells, but she can only use a certain amounts of her powers at a time. And though the years of being abused and slightly brain washed she forgot her old family (Hopper and his wife). So when the director of the lab starts caller her his daughter she believes him, and he renames her 11 (also her experiment number) and continues the mind bending experiments. So then the events of the show happens, and then Hopper keeps 11 hidden so than he and her can fix her mess and close up the upside down. Whoo.

    My theory on the upside down is that it was once a parallel universe very similar to ours with normal people living their lifes. Scientists there opened a portal to another dimension (the one of the mindflayer). He invaded their world and corrupted it, turning it into the current upside down.
    There is a scientific theory on multiple version of our universe (I think it's the string theory), so that would make sense.

    What if demogorgons can transform by eating different things?
    Like they ate dustins cat and they turned into a dog like body similar to the Cat
    Then the normal demorgorgon looks like a human maybe because it eats humans and likes that human form?
    Idk just a theory i thought

    My theory is that eleven is will, due to the reason that when will leaves, eleven arrives, and when eleven "dies" will comes back, and then finally, the demon in the sky is uniting them... Just a theory...

    I have a theory : i think the whole story is going on in Will's mind. When he fells off his bike, he never woke up and fell into a coma. He would have fallen not because of the demogorgon but because of the shade of a tree that would have scared him. (Sorry if my english was bad)

    I don't like the theories about them creating the upside-down. It kinda implies that there wasn't any other realities besides ours until they created one, which is highly unlikely. It's like saying there wasn't any other stars out there until our sun exploded and made them. You see how ridiculous that is.

  • Eden Vandenboom
    Eden Vandenboom 11 days ago

    I think that the upside down is all of the evil in Hawkins. Another reality.I think the government discovered all of this evil power in the other dimension and thought they could open it, to harness a weapon for the cold war. They needed telepathics and psycics to open the gate which is the real reason why Terry Ives was manipulated. The reason why eleven was manipulated was bc they wanted a superhuman army to fight in the cold war.

    A bit of dirt on the Hopper daughter theory. What would Hawkins lab have to do with someone whoe doesn't even live in hawkins I mean we already know that hopper used to live in the city so why would hawkins even mess with Sarah?
    And furthermore what would be the significance of 11 meeting Terry Ives? Like well turns out she's not your mother and season 2 didn't matter at all to the development of your character.

  • Supreme cuddlefish
    Supreme cuddlefish 18 days ago +1

    If when season 3 rolls around and they make 11 hoppers daughter then it would ruin both of their characters and probably the show.

  • It's Just Me Aidan!!
    It's Just Me Aidan!! 18 days ago

    If you think about all of the bodies when they rescued will then maybe other people lived in there once, I think that there was other life In the upside down and not only did it reflect Hawkins but also its inhabitants, and the demo gorgon was a reflection of eleven, meaning Kali has a reflection too, but who is the mind flayed a reflection of?

  • Juan Hiribarren
    Juan Hiribarren 18 days ago

    In the line of Connvex theory, I always thought that the upside down its something that relates to their states of mind... I mean, Barbara is captured by the demogorgon after feeling really desapointed on Nacy's behaviour... I had thought something similar about Will being on the upside down too, but I can't remember. Maybe I need to rewatch season 1.

  • Sea of Cards does stuff

    I have a theory will is the villain and the demogorgan tried to sacrifice him to fuse the universes

    Interesting take on animal behavior. Being afraid of humans is a learned behavior? It always seemed to me that it’s the opposite. Animals are afraid of us because we are an unknown, and as they become accustomed to us (in cities and urban areas), they become more brazen. I always thought that was more likely, then again I’ve never been to Antarctica. Interesting reversal of concept

    Personal theory: someone cross-pollinated a lily flower and a Venus fly trap in the center of a pentagram whilst simultaneously summoning Satan’s armpit whilst ALSO consummating a marriage with a star-nosed mole over the aforementioned pentagram. The results? Demogorgon.

    With the second theory they said thousands upon thousands of years ago humans inhabited the upside down. Evolution takes millions of years. But the theory is very good
