Redditors responded positively to this theory, with much of their enthusiasm centered around the prospect of Will getting some measure of revenge. “Poor Will has been tortured for so long,” writes user mhc2617“Let him get a kick in the ass.” As the mild-mannered underdog, Will’s potential empowerment would be cathartic to fans, as they were used to him being either pushed to the sidelines or kept in a safe place as the epic battle scenes began. It would also allow fans to watch him and Eleven work side-by-side – something fans have longed for for a while.

Will’s Red D&D Dragon reigns supreme

Given the significance of the D&D Red Dragon character Will painted for Reddit user Mike calembo points out that the Red Dragon is the “only monster stronger than Vecna ​​in that campaign.”

The possibility of Will becoming or controlling the Red Dragon D&D character in Upside Down is too good to pass up to fans, which is understandable. The idea of Weird stuff bringing in another villain similar to Vecna ​​is exciting and fits into the show’s fictional scenario. The fans love all the creatures in the show, so they will eat every monster they get.

The Duffer Brothers have already stated that the time-freeze element of the Upside Down is a big part of the story in Season 5 (via Deadline). Redditors had already felt that time suspension is the key to many answers; the clues to its creation point to Will, mainly because of the D&D motif and the fact that Will disappears on November 6, 1983, the day the Upside-Down was frozen in time and Elf opened the mother gate of the Hawkins Lab.

Will have to accept to grow up and let go to beat Vecna

In one of the more stunning hypotheses associated with Will as the Upside-Down creator, Redditor Nickienac suggests his character is sticking to 1983, “…before everyone grew up and some apart, before El Mike “stole”, etc,” and Will has to accept reality in order to defeat Vecna.

The idea of ​​’growing up’ has gradually become a big theme in the show, especially because the public sees these young people grow up to be young adults. Integrating the triumph of good over evil into Will’s adult decisions to let go of his childhood and accept the harsher realities of the bigger world would prove to be a great dramatic storyline (and definitely better than the one in Season 4); his power would be tied to the evolving lives, bodies, and minds of his core characters.

One top Reddit theory is that Will season 5’s character will dominate because he unconsciously shapes and controls everything. reddit user ReaperCDN states, “Will is the DM… he manifests the game he wanted to play all along.”

This theory gets a lot of enthusiastic response and for good reason – there is an undeniable narrative link between Will’s real-world fantasy and the supernatural story structure, such as the Will-centered architecture of the Upside-Down (his house) and the D&D-inspired elements in it. A lot Weird stuff fans want Will’s character to get more screen time in season 5 and maybe get what they want.

“Annnnnnn what was Will’s character when he started playing D&D?” redditor ProvoqGuys writes: “A wizard!” There’s no escaping how perfectly this wild theory fits into the strange universe of Weird stuff. If Will created the inverted mirror universe in an instant that captured his way of interacting with the world, then it makes sense that his version of himself along with Vecna ​​is part of the D&D scenario. That could also mean, if the personas of the others involved in the game carry over as well, Lucas is the Knight and Dustin is the Dwarf character class.

Will becomes the villain

reddit user 49 billion the idea that Will “…has a part of Vecna ​​in him and his jealousy of El makes him the biggest villain…” Fellow Redditors liked this wild idea and thought it was workable.

It’s possible that some of Vecna ​​has been absorbed into Will, and although he has a good heart, he has endured so much torture that there may be a way for Vecna ​​or some other event to flip his switch to the dark side. to make. The possibility of Will starting season 5 with good intentions and then becoming a villain alongside or competing with Vecna ​​is tempting, especially if there is a Darth Vader moment when Will eventually realizes what he has become and sacrifices himself to destroy Vecna and save his friends.
