We’ve known for some time that Eleven would be back for ‘Stranger Things 2’ once it was announced that Millie Bobby Brown would be returning, but how did she manage to return to our world? Last we saw her at the end of Season 1, she was trapped in the Upside Down after her battle with the Demogorgon that took place at Hawkins Middle School. Now we have the answer in this new clip from the upcoming season!
The clip was first shown at this weekend’s MCM Comic Con and while Brown was unable to attend the con in person, did send this clip to share. From the looks of her hair and outfit, the scene takes place not too long after that battle as Eleven still has her buzz cut hair and her signature pink dress and jacket. While still in the otherworldly realm, she finds a small portal in which she uses her powers to enlarge and finally escape.

It looks to be her powers may have increased during her time in the Upside Down and from the trailers, she seems to be keeping to herself in the woods and surviving from the food Chief Hopper leaves for her after the breakout. Why she doesn’t go directly back to Mike remains to be seen, but we do know that this season we’ll find out more about this mysterious girl as Brown hinted at SDCC:
“She’s obviously grieving from being away from Mike. It’s a big climax this season for Eleven and you’ll learn a lot more about her, and it’s gonna be very exciting, very unpredictable. You don’t really find out what you want to find out, but then when you find out, you like it.”
We won’t have to wait long to find out more about Eleven as all 9 episodes of Season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix beginning October 27!
