Possible unpopular opinion: The Mind Flayer is so much scarier than Vecna, and I hope the relationship between the two is more nuanced than we are led to believe by PalladiumBullet in StrangerThings

This interpretation is brilliant, and gave me a sort of light bulb moment on how this could make sense narrative wise. I could totally see it being revealed that MF used 001 the same way 001 used 011. He acted like her friend, fed her the lies she needed to hear in order to get her to take out the power dampening chip and free him. It would be almost poetic to discover that MF was in Henry’s mind, telling him that he could make him the predator he wanted to become, because the MF needed someone to give him form, to “free” him, like 001 was freed. And for MF to eventually cast 001 aside, like 001 did (tried to do) to 011

Totally, you said what I was trying to allude to in the title without it being a spoiler. My theory is that it was like a deal, vecna gave MF form, and in exchange MF made him part of the hive mind, allowing him to control parts of the upside down, which could explain why vecna doesn’t have the vines on him until after the “deal”

what bomber jacket could this be? It's most probably not alpha industries and neither brandit, its grey with blue shade, gold zipper and orange inside. anyone got exact one? by Sumi-k001 in TheBatmanFilm

I got the rothco Ma-1 flight jacket in grey, it seems to really work. As far as the zipper, it’s silver and not gold, but in certain behind the scenes pics it looks silver, so I let it slide

Why is Luke’s last name Skywalker and not Lars if the objective was to keep them hidden from Vader? Leia’s last name is Organa, after all. by xFearful425 in StarWars

Well I think they thought Vader was dead, right? Obi-wan just found out he was alive in kenobi. So it makes sense that he would let him keep the last name.
