Stranger Things Theory – Why Demogorgon Could Be Eleven’s Mom


THIS VIDEO CONTAINS SPOILERS! Why would the monster be calling out to Eleven? I believe that the mind of Eleven’s mother, Terry Ives, is the Demogorgon monster, longing to be reunited with her daughter. Come along with me as I dive into the depths of this theory.

This is my most popular video and I’m very happy it has reached so many people. When I watched Season 1, I was left really perplexed about why Terry Ives was even introduced if Joyce and Hopper made no attempt to reunite Eleven with her mother, or even mention Terry to Eleven, it was this line of thinking that led me to create this theory. What do you think of this theory? Do you think that Terry’s consciousness could be the Demogorgon? It’s also possible the creature is just a manifestation of Terry’s, desperate to retrieve her missing daughter.

I'm interested in anything out of the ordinary. Usually anything science-fiction-related and the darker the better, but I also really like positive character growth and emotional arcs in storytelling. I'm also fascinated by the unknown, I like trying to piece the whole picture together, which is why I enjoy making Theories. I will post more on than on YouTube, because it's faster, so keep coming back for more!
