WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
The 5th season of Stranger Things hasn’t even made its official debut on Netflix yet, but, like the previous parts of the series, it’s already buzzing the field of theories. Perhaps, even more now, as the fifth wave of episodes will be the last of the work, which made its debut in 2016 and has since become one of the biggest hits in the history of the streaming giant.
Now, a new theory involving Eleven and Will Buyers appeared on the internet and is making waves. In the hypothesis, Eleven could kill Will at the end of the series, given the boy’s connection to the Upside Down, Vecna and The Mind Flayer.

Will Buyers become an enemy in Stranger Things season 5?
In the 4th season of the series, Will was a little thrown to the sidelines when it comes to action. His arc revolved more around his personal challenges. However, the boy always had a very strong connection with the strangeness of Hawkins.
We know, for example, that the boy has connections with the Inverted World, The Mind Eater and, mainly, Vecna, the great villain of the narrative. In that sense, it is very possible that Stranger Things season 5 goes deeper into this unwanted relationship🇧🇷
Many fans therefore feel that Will could be the key to defeating Vecna. On the other hand, it could be used by the villain and, if that really happens, it would be up to Eleven to “eliminate” the threat.

In this way, Will’s death by Eleven’s hands would be a way to weaken Vecna.
On the other hand, others argue that, in the event of a “possession”, Will could sacrifice himself for the benefit of the group and the city. Which, in fact, would not be something completely impossible, since the boy’s loyalty and love for his friends are huge.
There’s also the possibility that Vecna’s death means Will’s death, due to the bond between the two. That is, Eleven could indirectly kill him by eliminating the villain.
Either way, we’ll have to wait for Stranger Things Season 5 to premiere on Netflix to find out!
