I say you “might” recognize her because, honestly, I’m not sure who she is. Her arrival was saved for the final minute of the episode, and before her face was revealed, we were given a big, fat “To Be Continued.”

Stranger Things Creators Say The Show Was Originally More Violent

23 January 2017 9:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Stranger Things, which arrived on Netflix in 2016, succeeds for two reasons. Firstly, it evokes a very specific kind of nostalgia, for 1980s-era science fiction. Secondly, it creates a very clear sense of dread and foreboding, without resorting to blood and gore – well, not too much blood and gore, anyway. That wasn’t always the case, however, as co-creators Ross and Matt Duffer explained to Vulture recently.

“The Eleven character, the kind of powers she has and to have a young protagonist that’s violent — it’s not E.T. It’s not a happy situation. She’s killing people, and brutally murdering them. The original pilot was much more violent. It was originally like an R-rated thing. Winona’s character was like, ‘Eff this, eff that!’ It felt a little bit unnecessary. I don’t feel like we sacrificed anything by toning it down a little bit.”

If anything, tightening up »

After La La Land won big at the 2017 Golden Globes Sunday night, Ryan Gosling was ready to relax. Gosling, Emma Stone and Damien Chazelle caught up with E! News' Ross Mathews at the E! After Party where they were still visibly on cloud 9. "I'm feeling pretty floaty," Stone gushed. "Does this sink in for people?"
