"Finding Out": From Cris Beam's "Mother, Stranger"
We see in flashbacks that his young daughter contracted an illness years earlier and, despite all his fatherly love and care, she died. Now, I'm not suggesting that dads aren't as strong as moms or that cancer and being sucked into the Upside Down are somehow comparable. Nor, I think, is the show. Despite all the sci-fi equipment, super heroics, and technical knowledge of basically every other character, Mama Byers is the biggest secret weapon in Hawkins. Then we have Mrs.
Wheeler, a more traditional eighties housewife and the mother of popular and studious Nancy, AV club member Mike, and toddler Holly. Her husband is more or less just a guy around the house, and we find out from Nancy that they married when Karen was young and her husband was…not so young. Her whole thing is being a wife and mother, and she's essentially a good person—Karen is sympathetic to Joyce when others aren't, tries her best to deal with teenage Nancy, and is firm but not harsh with Mike and his friends. Sure, there's a lot she doesn't notice; most obviously, that her son Mike is keeping Eleven as a guest in their basement for, like, a week.
And no, she's not as overtly "badass" as Joyce. But her motherly superheroics are of another quality: The measure of a parent isn't always the parent's behavior; it's the kids', and Karen has raised incredible kids. Despite the rest of the town's somewhat comic apathy, Nancy will not rest until she finds out what happened to her best friend Barb. And Mike doesn't just let Eleven stay at the Wheeler house; he feeds, clothes, and comforts her. Mike and Nancy are incredibly caring and tenacious, and I don't think they learned it from their dad. That's all Karen's doing.
In fact, Mike knows this. He knows that because of his warm and loving family—held together by his mother—he is safe, safe enough even to take risks and help others. He's gone. The bad man's gone. We'll be home soon, and my mom…she'll get you your own bed. You can eat as many Eggos as you want. Which brings us to Eleven, a case study in being unmothered.
