Until very recently, Brown had expressed nothing but extreme excitement for Stranger Things 3. Hours before the show premiered on the 4th of July, Brown took to her Instagram story to express her joy and gratitude for the opportunity to work on the series, and her enthusiasm was palpable. “I can’t believe that we are 20 minutes away from Stranger Things 3 premiering. Before it comes out I wanna say that every single person working on our set is an essential factor for making our show. We all work so hard to bring this to life each year,” the 15-year-old gushed.

Stranger Things 3 is a cast favorite

The movie star then went on to declare that Season 3 of the show was actually her favorite and that she was enjoying exploring her character’s arc. “I’ll let you in on a little secret…this was my favorite season to film and my favorite season to watch. This year 011 is growing up. She is evolving into a real teenager. To watch her progression with fashion, relationships, and personal trauma is so beautifully written and directed and I was so lucky to be able to portray el in the way she deserved. Mike and El in this season are ADORBBBBSSSS and just wait for MAX and EL OMG I NEED TO SHUT UP IT’S ONLY 11 MINUTES” The Godzilla: King of the Monsters actress exclaimed, her excitement bubbling over.

What Brown’s not happy about

But Brown recently confessed that there were some parts of Stranger Things 3 that she really took offense to. The 15-year-old hopped on Instagram for a Q&A session with her fans and she was asked how she felt about the breakup between Milke and Eleven. “Okay, I’m going to be real with everyone right now, I was not happy,” Brown admitted before launching into a full narrative.

Is Mileven endgame?

She then went on to express that she herself was a Mileven shipper and wanted desperately for the pair to be together. “Why can’t they be together? Because this bloody monster keeps getting in the way. Because obviously, I want them to be together, I mean, she’s so in love with him and he’s so in love, it’s such a cute little storyline and they’re so cute together. And he loved her, no matter what she looked like, no matter what she said, no matter what she did, he still loved her and that is just the perfect boy. To love you for whoever you are,” the Stranger Things actress confessed.

From there, Brown continued to speak about her reaction to the breakup. “I was like ‘hmmm, ok, well here’s the thing… no.’ I didn’t say that but I was so, so not okay with it. I was really excited for them to be together and then when they broke up, I was like ‘okay, when are they gonna make up because they need to'” she said, half-jokingly.

Season 4

Luckily for Brown and fans of Stranger Things 3, the breakup was only temporary and by the end of the season Mileven was back together again. Will they stay together for Stranger Things 4? Well, that’s anyone’s guess.
