Who is Joyce Byers?
Winona Ryder A.K.A Joyce Byers is one of the main characters in the hit sci-fi drama horror series. Joyce, a mother to Will and Jonathan Byers works as a retail clerk who is a financially poor single mother and depends on her eldest to make ends meet.
After her son Will disappears, she doesn’t know how to accept those facts and believes that he is talking to her through the lights in her house. Despite everyone thinking she’s having a mental breakdown, Joyce with the help of her friends uncovered the mystery of her son’s disappearance.
Joyce was known to be a great mother to her children throughout season 1-3 fans have gushed about how incredible she is. Deathsquishy on reddit said —“excellent character played by an excellent actress too.”
u/thomasvista said— “I absolutely love Joyce Byers….she is such a sweet,loving woman and great mom. I want her to adopt me as her son! I don’t care that I’m a grown-was man lol. And I would love to be a brother to Will and Jonathan.”
Fans see her working with the CIA
Till season 3, Joyce had been working in a grocery store as a retail clerk. But she was also open to new employment that would make her financially more stable. However amidst that, she takes in another guest, Eleven in the Byers household.
While there are many theories and speculations going around about what season could possibly look like, fans strongly believe that Joyce’s experience in investigating and fighting creatures could be a valuable asset to the CIA.
One fan took to Reddit to promote his theory saying— “After the battle of Starcourt the CIA is now amply aware of the dangers of the Upside Down and that the Russians are aware of this too.”
Will “working” with the CIA really work out?
As read in the history books, during the 1980s the US were in a cold war with the Soviet Union and as shown in the series, the russian threat played a major role in season 3. As the cold war continues to sustain throughout the decade, the CIA’s role might fit perfectly well as the supernatural influence of Upside down takes over the events of history.
The fan also noted— “Those in the CIA are smart enough to realize that Joyce knows all this too. She is a dangerous potential security leak. It makes sense that they will want to keep close tabs on Joyce.”
For creators, having Joyce join the CIA could bring fans to love the show even more. The audience would love to see the protectful and resourceful mother take an active role as America’s freedom fighter.
