Not 18 hours of Stranger things could deter viewers from staying on the screen for the entire Season 4 Volume1 during Memorial Day Weekend.
The return of Netflix’s hugely popular genre series was a big hit with viewers eager to see Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), and the rest of The Party. It arrived three years after the thrilling Season 3 finale.
It’s obvious what happens next in Volume 2, with the two movies-length episodes. Volume 1 is over. Eleven is ready to do what Eleven loves best: Save her friends from imminent doom by climbing through The Upside Down.
It’s not clear how she will pull it off. DOES ELEVEN GET HER POWERS BACK?
HOW WAS THE ELEVEN’S POWER RESTORED
Eleven clearly has enough psionic power to blast some lights and slam two secret laboratory guards against her ceiling. In Volume 1, Episode 1, “The Dive,” Dr. Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine), finds Eleven as she tries to escape from his clutches once more. To her dismay, however she is exhausted by the relatively small return to her abilities.
Eleven lost her powers after Season 3 ended, when she defeated The Mind Flayer. Eleven was bitten in one of her encounters with the shadowy demon. It leaves behind a parasitic part of it that wiggles around Hawkins. Hawkins Police Chief Jim Hopper, David Harbour, manages to defeat the evil critter. However, Eleven was first sucked by it like a leech.

DOES ELEVEN GET HER POWERS BACK?
The Party is facing major problems with Eleven’s sudden loss in her telekinetic abilities. They are currently split between California, Indiana and Kamchatka. This poses a problem for The Party as they must deal with all threats. It also presents a big embarrassment to Eleven who had pinned much of her personality on her psionic powers.
Eleven is taken hostage and placed in an underground bunker. She uses sensory deprivation tanks to regain her remarkable faculties. This brings Eleven back to the traumatic events at Hawkins National Lab. This memory lane trip, which revealed how other children were treated as well as their tragic fate, triggers Eleven’s restoration of skills. Brenner explained that Eleven was able to tap into her power by getting to the heart of her mind’s maze.
WHAT WILL ELEVEN DO SEASON 4 VOLUME 1?
For the final four hours of Season 4, it is still unknown if Eleven’s abilities will be sufficient to defeat Vecna by herself. Although Eleven was able to defeat Demogorgons and Demodogs and the Mind Flayer in a narrow victory, it is her first encounter with a humanoid creature capable of hunting and speaking like a psychopathic lonewolf.
Vecna is The Party’s most fearsome antagonist. Eleven might not be able subdue him alone. Volume 2 could see Eleven and her friends try to find the Hawkins National Laboratory surviving experiments, like Season 2’s Eight and Eleven’s “sister”, so they can unite and overthrow Vecna.
