3. Introducing Eleven

If you thought a scary monster from another dimension was going to be the weirdest part of this show, Stranger Things corrected that very quickly by introducing Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven. While it takes us a while to learn who she is and what she can do, Millie Bobby Brown becomes the ultimate scene-stealer very quickly.

She emerges in a hospital gown with a buzzcut and enters a diner to eat some fries. Nobody recognizes her or knows why she’s there, but things continue to get worse and weirder pretty quickly. I mean, she stops a fan with her mind and we see her kill some agents. So whoever she is, she’s not here to mess around with anybody.

Still, there’s an aspect of vulnerability that Brown telegraphs really well. So whether you’re asking yourself WTF just happened or why you’ve never seen Brown on television before, you’re officially committed to her character and the oversized yellow t-shirt she wears. Obviously, you might be a little wary of her, too.
