• Billy dies after sacrificing in the final Stranger Things 3 .
• But much earlier, he took a different step that significantly changed the way the season unfolded.
• A Reddit user drew attention to this interesting detail.
We have all but ended the end of Stranger Things 3, and looked at how everything developed. While much of the discussion was about Hopper and the consequences of his sacrifice ̵
The contribution begins with the discussion of how Billy sacrifices himself to the Mind Flayer, challenging his possessions as a last act, protecting Elf and the rest of the others. It should be noted that this was not the first time Billy resisted the Mind Flayer – as you may remember, for a moment, at the beginning of the season, when he first dealt with the property, there was A vision of Billy flared up in Mrs. Wheeler's head, which she probably skinned and then added to the hive. He did not give in, resisting instead, and told Mrs. Wheeler to stay away from him.
This is the key, it is said in theory, because if Billy had infected Mrs. Wheeler, it would have been a pretty simple next step to reach the rest of the family, especially Mike. If Mike had been hit, it would have been a very easy way to reach Elf, which would have caused everything to fail. In contradicting this initial urge, the theoretical state, Billy paused on the path to a particular fall that just got in his way.
Other users commented on the theory, with one noting that Billy had probably seen some of his own mother (who was clearly very important to him, eleven letting him know that she knew what made Billy get away with it to solve). in Karen, who struck a chord. "It also speaks to his character because Karen with her blond hair and of course mother Aura Billy probably remembers his own mother, and after seeing the flashbacks, it's obvious he loved his mother so much, so thanks Billy. You'll be missing. "
Obviously, Billy starts the movie by trying to sleep with Mrs. Wheeler, and while she's tempted, decides that she can not do that to her family. While clear Freudian elements are in play here, another user noted the clear reference to the film playing in Hawkins: Back to the Future, in which the main character enters into a romantic relationship with a younger version of his mother device .
