In season one, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) is introduced as a poorly socialized child/science experiment with a limited vocabulary. But, in a season four flashback scene, viewers learn that Eleven was raised around other children. So, what happened to Eleven between the events in season four and when we first meet her?
“You learn a little bit more about this in Volume 2,” Matt told Variety. “I guess I’m revealing a little bit, but she goes into a coma, reawakens, has no memory of these events and then is raised in total isolation by Brenner.”
Per Matt, “that’s one reason for the speech.”
