Will Byers was hooked up to a tendril while he was strung up in the Upside Down equivalent of Hawkinspublic library.


Season One

Joyce and Chief Hopper found Will Byers with the tendril in his mouth, extending through his esophagus, and into his stomach. Hopper pulled it out of his throat before shooting and killing it. [1]

Behind the Scenes

The tendril was made of rubber and edited with visual effects in the final version.[2]


  • While the official name of the "tendril" has not been clarified, it is referred to as such in the English closed captioning.
  • A track on Stranger Things, Volume Two is titled "Tendril", but is not the track that plays during the moment in which the tendril is removed from Will's body. However, this is the track that played when Eleven witnessed a slug slither out of Barb's corpse.
