Eleven’s birthday

Quite a bit of speculation about Eleven’s birthday popped up when the episode titles were announced. There’s an episode titled “The Birthday,” so it makes sense that we’re bound to see someone celebrating their birthday. However, it isn’t made clear that it will be Eleven’s birthday.

I think celebrating her birthday could be a great way to give her a sense of normalcy. Hopper has taken her in and she even attended the Snow Ball, so they’ve taken multiple steps in that direction. While I don’t expect things to ever be “normal” in Hawkins at this point, it doesn’t mean she shouldn’t get to feel like a kid like everyone else.

We haven’t really had too many of the kids mention their birthdays, so there’s no way to really narrow it down to just Eleven as a possibility. For all we know, it could be a random birthday celebration going on at the mall. That would be a little disappointing, though.

The kids really seem like they’re growing up fast, so it’ll be interesting to see what shape the party would take. In the trailer, there’s a mention of not just playing Dungeons & Dragons in Mike’s basement anymore. So they seem to be interested in exploring new things to do. That leaves us with a lot of possibilities for what they’ll be up to in the new season. Are you hoping it’s Eleven’s birthday that we get to see?
