Where Is The Mind
Flayer During
Stranger Things
4 Volume 1?
Since the Mind Flayer’s introduction in Season 2 of “Stranger Things,” the hulking beast has been the show’s overarching Big Bad. It’s a bit surprising then that it has not appeared in Season 4 but maybe fans have to look a little closer to see it has been there the whole time.
One of the most chilling powers Vecna displays is his ability to reach out to our dimension after attaching himself to a set of creepy tendrils in the Upside Down. Could the tentacles Vecna is using to boost his powers belong to the Mind Flayer and has the Mind Flayer voluntarily joined forces with Vecna to rain terrible vengeance upon the people of Hawkins?
One major reason to believe that the tentacles Vecna is using are related to the Mind Flayer is the way the physical manifestation of the giant creature uses its powers in the third season. When Billy Hargrove challenges the Mind Flayer in the Season 3 finale, the beast uses its tentacles on him in the same visual manner as the tendrils attached to Vecna in Season 4.
