In episode 8, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) agreed to work with Dr Mark Brenner (Matthew Modine) to try and restore them. As she was training, Mike Wheeler, (Finn Wolfhard), Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton) and Argyle (Eduardo Franco) went on a mission to find her.

During the journey, Mike had a conversation with Will about his concern that El isn't going to need him anymore. This is when Will gives a heartfelt speech about how "El" loves and will always need him.

At one moment, a teary-eyed Will says: "When you're different, sometimes you feel like a mistake." His older brother Jonathan overheard their conversation and quickly realized that Will wasn't talking about El at all.

Actually, Will was indirectly telling Mike that he was gay and it was actually him who felt like the "mistake" for being different. It also suggested that Will is in love with Mike.

Fans reacted on Twitter to share their heartbreak at this emotional moment.

One user wrote, 'will byers has been abused and made fun of for being gay for so long to just have him say he feels like a mistake but mike is the one that doesn’t make him feel like one but mike doesn’t realise and goes on to look at the map to find el???? WHAT’S FAIR IN THAT'

One viewer tweeted: “'i’m still not over the way will byers thinks that being different and gay makes him a mistake. i want nothing more than to just hug him and let him know how loved he is and how he deserves the world"

Later Will and Jonathan have a heartful conversation where Jonathan brought up how he missed his little brother going to him when he needed help. Even though Will did not come out to him, it was clear both of them knew what brought on the discussion.

It looks like that Will Byer's coming out story will be in season 5.

  1. Sorry, but there's no proof of any of that. The writers have said it's up to viewer's interpretation. Maybe he is just feeling like he's losing his friend, Mike. Everything doesn't just default to gay.
