I’m going to come clean. For the first four episodes of Stranger Things, I thought that a boy was playing the part of Eleven and pretending to be a girl. I was subsequently proven wrong, and then I saw this video and realized I am an idiot:
That is now my favorite version of “Thinking Out Loud.” But it is interesting how a shaved head can turn someone into a totally different person a la Nasir Khan in “The Night Of” or our girl Millie Bobby Brown here. Here’s a video of her transitioning from well, a really nice looking girl to creepy super human with a knack for nose bleeds and knocking people the fuck out. She gave me nightmares for a few nights after those scenes in the water tank. Just a creepy looking kid with the shaved head and weird dress that she gets from Mike’s house.
Hopefully that hair grows back so she doesn’t scare the rest of her classmates at school, but I’m gonna need her back in Eleven form for season two because I’m already fiending for more episodes..
