The actors discussed that the romance between Eleven and Will is not possible as there is no base to it. The two consider each other brother and sister, they share a sibling like bond. So the clues being dropped about the love triangle instantly means that Will has a thing for Mike. David Harbour and Finn Wolfhard were dropping quite close hints to the fact.

David Harbour said, “Will wants to be in the basement with Mike playing D&D for the rest of his life.” Wolfhard confirms the statement, “Exactly, and he’s said that.” It is sad to see now Will go through a heartbreak, as Mike is in love with Eleven. The two were into each other since season 1. Will even painted Mike, but was too afraid to give it to him at the airport.

Now, Stranger Things is set in 1980’s and it would be really hard for Will to come out.


Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 is coming out on July 1, 2022.
