    Season 4, Volume 2 Of "Stranger Things" Essentially Confirmed That Will Is Gay, And Fans Had Some Hilarious Reactions To It

    "Will Byers cant die yet, he still has to find out that being gay is okay."

    🚨 There are some spoilers ahead for Stranger Things 4, Volume 2! 🚨

    As you probably already know (or else why would you click on this post?), Volume 2 of Stranger Things dropped last Friday — just in time for the long holiday weekend.

    The epic last two episodes of Season 4 actually answered a lot of questions. Like, that it was Vecna all along (sung to the tune of "Agatha All Along").

    And of course, that yes, Will is gay.

    While Will doesn't come out and say it out loud (which makes sense given the time period and his age), he does open up to Mike with an emotional speech about being different and expresses his feelings for him by explaining to Mike why Eleven loves him.

    will has me fully in my feelings rn ❤️
