MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD for Stranger Things Season 3
Stranger Things’ Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, has addressed fan conversation around a scene that could suggest his character is gay.
The scene in question takes place in episode 3, and sees Will become upset that Mike and Lucas would rather discuss their relationships with Eleven and Max rather than play Dungeons & Dragons. In response, Mike says “It’s not my fault you don’t like girls,” resulting in a devastated Will riding off on his bike.
But what was meant by that comment? “It’s really up to interpretation,” Schnapp said in an interview with TheWrap. “While all the characters were out developing and growing up, Will was in the Upside Down and he was alone there, not interacting with or connected to his friends or the rest of the world. And when he got back, he expected everything to just go back to how it was before, how it was when he was normal and when he was a kid and he wanted to go back to the basement and play D&D.”
