Stranger Things viewers spot major plot hole with Eleven in Season 4 and everyone is talking about it

It has taken three years for the supernaturally popular series Stranger Things to return to Netflix for the fourth season, and a lot has changed in the city of Hawkins.

Viewers get to see Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, whose world was turned Upside Down when she recently learnt her character’s actual age, even start over and move to the sunny Californian town of Lenora Hills.

However, fans who have been watching since 2016 still remember the psychokinetic youngster’s terrifying beginnings in the Hawkins laboratory – which has now lent itself to a noticeable plot hole.

In season one, when Eleven escaped the lab, she didn’t know how to speak and had to be taught by her new groups of friends, Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin) and Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo).

However, in season four, Eleven has multiple flashbacks to her time in the laboratory, where she is seen being able to speak a few words and even string together short sentences.

The discrepancy in her speech has sparked an online debate as fans question whether it’s a plot hole or not.

One person tweeted: “The only thing I’m confused about in Stranger Things is how Eleven can talk so well in the flashbacks.”

Another echoed: “The only plot hole in Eleven’s memories is that she speaks too well girl could barely say ‘no’ when we first met her.”

A third said: “Can someone explain why Eleven was able to apparently talk clearly in her memories but in S1 she could barely form a sentence.”

However, others pondered that maybe her speech was fine during her time in the lab, but the terror she faced stunted her ability to communicate.

The flashbacks also show her as a small child and as a teenager – and someone noted that her speech could be a mix of her dialogue from the past combined with her subconscious thoughts of her present self.

Plot hole or not, we’ve certainly seen Stranger Things, and we’re just happy Eleven has a voice, and her powers, to fight off the horrifying new monster, Vecna.
