If there is one thing fans love to do with their favorite TV shows, especially those with a little mystery to them like Stranger Things, is speculate and come up with different theories about the characters and what is happening on the show.
And since we still have to wait FOREVER before we get to watch Stranger Things season three, Vanity Fair enlisted the help of David Harbour, our favorite small town police chief, to take on some of the MANY fan theories about the show that have appeared on Reddit.

The theories posited by Redditors, as one would expect, are all over the place. There is everything from time travel to the Demogorgon to Eleven’s mother to, of course, what the Upside Down really is (it’s actually Hawkins, Indiana in the future).
Naturally, Harbour blows pretty much all of the fan theories about Stranger Things clean out of the water, but he does it in such a nice and funny way it really doesn’t matter.
As for other Stranger Things rumors and theories that we are waiting to find out about, Millie Bobby Brown recently said at this year’s Netflix FYSee event that she’d be all about Sheriff Hopper officially hooking up with Joyce Byers in season three.
“Listen, I would love for them to get together. Jopper is like my inspiration in life,” said Brown. “Winona Ryder and David Harbor are like my parents. On set, they’re like, ‘Stop running, what are you eating, why are you eating that?’ David is like, ‘Another boy?’ And in the show, if they rekindle, that means Will and Eleven will be step-siblings. I would love that because Noah [Schnapp] is my boy best friend.”
Yeah, that definitely needs to happen.
