How Could Dr Brenner Give Her Powers Back To Eleven?

Dr Brenner might be the only person who knows Eleven’s powers, and how to control them. Since his disappearance, Eleven has been trying to learn about her powers by herself. However, she had Kali’s guidance in season 2, but it didn’t last long.

After being injured by the Mind Flyer in season 3, she was unable to use her powers again. By the end of the season, she was pretty much powerless. Brenner is the one who helped her train and developed her powers. Hence, he may know how she can get them back.

Why Would Eleven Turn To Dr Brenner For Help?

A fan theory posted onΒ Reddit suggests that Eleven will spend some time at a mental hospital due to all the trauma she has gone through. Hopper’s supposed death may be the last straw.

Eleven’s reunion with Dr Brenner won’t be an easy one for her. So, if he returns before she even knows that Hopper is alive – her evil father figure is back. Based on what is shown about him, it’s unlikely he will help Eleven. He will surely ask for something in return, possibly her leaving the Byers.

Apart from helping Eleven get her powers back, Brenner’s return can answer some of the questions about the Upside Down.
