Stranger Things: Why did Eleven lose her powers? Will her powers return?

Stranger Things season 3 women

Throughout Stranger Things 3, there's several easter eggs and pop culture references embedded within the episodes that fans of the show will have no doubt spotted.

If anything, I'm fine with Stranger Things ending in one or two more seasons.

Barb was Nancy Wheeler's best friend in the first season of Stranger Things, until she was taken to the Upside Down during Steve's house party.

However, three months later, the show revealed she still did not have her powers.

According to Netflix, tens of millions watched it right away, and many of those people binged the entire season within just a few days, breaking records for the service. Eleven later announced that Barb had died in the Upside Down.

This means that Eleven is not able to search for and locate Jim Hopper (David Harbour) keeping the mystery of if he's alive and where he is going. "What is even that saying, I don't even know what it is". We went through the season multiple times to catch as many shout outs to the 1980s as we could, and as it turns out, there are tons of them.

That context makes "The Flayed" an even more fascinating episode to dissect: though it feels like the most driven, moving hour of the season, each scene is essentially created to reset the stakes of the story - but mostly, it feels like the Duffer brothers unlocking some arbitrarily-placed obstacles for our characters to bypass, and finally kick the season into high gear. Whereas Season 2 kind of had a lot of fat to trim (The Lost Sister, particularly), the third season gave us a solid, compact story, with nearly all the loose ends tied up in the end.

This was hinted at in an interview with the brothers in Entertainment Weekly.

"Not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins".
