Netflix has released a new clip from upcoming season 2 of “Stranger Things”. The clip, which was screened during the show’s panel at the 2017 MCM London Comic-Con, reveals how Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven escapes the Upside Down through a gooey breach.
As everyone remembers, Eleven is trapped in the Upside Down back in season 1 finale after saving the day from the Demogorgon. Trailers for the upcoming sophomore season, however, feature Eleven returning to the real world, leaving a question of how she escapes the dark and dangerous place.
It appears that Millie’s character, who wears her pink dress and jacket from season 1, finds a gooey, glowing portal which connects the Upside Down to what seems like Hawkins Middle School. She uses her telekinetic power to make the hole big enough for her to climb her way through it. The never-before-seen clip suggests that her power is somehow getting stronger as she has little to no trouble widening the hole.
The clip concludes shortly after Eleven gets her way out of the Upside Down with her body covered by some sticky liquid from the breach. It remains to be seen what will she do once she returns to the real word. Perhaps the first thing she does is getting the tasty Eggo Waffles that Sheriff Hopper left in the woods, just like what she does in the final trailer.

Series creators Ross and Matt Duffer previously noted that season 2 would be different from the first season, which mainly focused on finding Will (Noah Schnapp) and defeating the Demogorgon. Season 2 of “Stranger Things” would feature several disparate storylines that all revolved around something called the “shadow monster,” a nickname given to a giant creature Will first met in PTSD-like visions of the Upside Down.
“It’s all connected to this singular threat, which is tied into this shape that Will sees in the sky,” Ross Duffer revealed. Matt further explained that season 2 would have its episodes “building on the last on,” before adding, “It gets much crazier than it ever got in season 1.”
“Stranger Things” season 2 premieres on Friday, October 27 on Netflix.
