Perhaps life is now imitating reality? This is pretty bizarre..
Few weeks ago when Stranger Things 4 was released, it was rumored that the Duffer Brothers were actively changing previous shows to either fix mistakes or solid up the story line.
People started hearing clock noises in season one when Will was abducted.
Most recently it was rumored by viewers that the scenes where Jonathan Byers is taking photos of Nancy Wheeler… the scenes from season one have been called ‘pervy’ and viewers noticed they were now gone..T
As pointed out by Insider, the scene in question was featured in “The Weirdo on Maple Street,” the second episode of the inaugural season. The original version showed Jonathan Byers, portrayed by Charlie Heaton, hiding in a wooded area as he spies on his classmates and snaps photos of their late-night get-together. At one point during the scene, Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) and Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) go inside the house for an intimate moment. Jonathan continues photographing Nancy through a bedroom window, but pauses once he sees her starting to undress.
In the original episode, Jonathan only hesitates for a few seconds before continuing to take photos of a shirtless Nancy. Fans the scene has since been edited out of the streaming version, as it no longer shows Jonathan taking photos of Nancy in a vulnerable position. Instead, Jonathan lifts up his camera and turns his direction to Barb Holland (Shannon Purser).
But did this specific scene exist ?? This is where things get confusing.
The official Twitter account for the show’s writers’ room posted the following message on Tuesday (26 July): “PSA: no scenes from previous seasons have ever been cut or re-edited. And they never will be.”..
Some fans on social media claimed that they remembered that, in the “original” scene, Jonathan continued to take photos of Nancy as she took her clothes off, which is not what happens in the version of the episode on Netflix now…
The show states they aren’t making changes—and they did not edit out pervy Jonathan scenes..
So what do you remember ? is this some weird new example of CERN going hog wild on a show that subtly deals with time travel?
Are the writers lying?
Or are we all just mistaken, and creating false memories ..?
