Something "very, very disturbing" happens to a major character in Stranger Things season two

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the makers of Netflix’s smash hit original series Stranger Things want the second season to make the first look – by comparison – like a barrel of laughs. 

We’ve already heard that the new episodes, which appropriately land on Halloween, will be much darker and even more horror-oriented than what we saw before, and new quotes from Finn Wolfhard (Mike) will only ramp up the anticipation. The young actor told TVLine that one character in particular has a rough time. “Something happens to Will in the first couple of episodes that’s very, very disturbing,” he teased. 

It was pretty obvious that despite being rescued from the chilling Upside Down, Will (Noah Scnapp) did not return as the happy, BMXing preteen his friends remembered. The slug-puking scene in the season finale looked like an ominous sign of things to come.  “They know he is not well,” added Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin). “But they are just trying to pretend [nothing] happened.”

Elsewhere in the interview, we learn that Mike has become disillusioned since the disappearance of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven at the end of season one (although it’s pretty clear to the viewer that she’ll be back eventually). “He’s kind of given up on life,” explained Wolfhard. “He has no one to fight for until, slowly as the season progresses, he [becomes] more and more like [the] leader he was in the first season.”

Another thing season two will have a lot more of, we’re told, is the big scary monsters. And new ones at that. There were glimpses of the beast holding Will captive scattered throughout the first season, but a lot of the suspense came from not knowing exactly what the boys were dealing with.  

“Last season, a lot of the horror and a lot of what was happening with Will was off screen in the Upside Down,” said co-creator Ross Duffer. “That’s not the case [in Season 2]. The horror is more up-close and personal.”
