Pennsylvania: Aimee Mullens

Stranger Things and Pennsylvania are connected through the actress who plays Terry Ives, Aimee Mullins. She was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania. For the most part, we saw Terry Ives in a catatonic state.

She did respond to a few questions from Joyce and Hopper, and she did respond to Eleven being in the house, but beyond that, we didn’t get much. And yet, she’s a totally memorable character. That’s some good acting!

We do get to find out that, despite what her sister thought, she did actually go into labor with Eleven/Jane. She didn’t have a miscarriage. It was Dr. Brenner (who has done experiments on her in the past) who abducted Terry’s child so he could conduct similar experiments on her. Talk about evil!

Aimee Mullins has also been in Devs, Bull, Limitless, and Young Ones with Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, and Elle Fanning.

But Aimee Mullins isn’t the only connection Stranger Things has to Pennsylvania. In Stranger Things season 3, inside the mall, they show a bookstore. And unlike Scoops Ahoy, it’s an actual bookstore, Waldenbooks. If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, you’ve probably been to a Waldenbooks at one point in your life.

The first Waldenbooks opened in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1962 and unfortunately, the bookstore shut its doors completely in 2011. Most likely, it’s Amazon and Barnes and Noble that brought them down.
