On July 1, 1985, Heather, after being possessed by the The Mind Flayer, invites her co-worker, Billy Hargrove, who’s also possessed, over to dinner with her mother and father. Heather’s parents, concluding that this was just a dinner with Billy, get poisoned and taken to the Mind Flayer themselves.

Janet wakes up next to her husband Tom in Brimborn Steel Works where the Mind Flayer has made its new home. They too get possessed by the Mind Flayer and become members of The Flayed.

Eventually, on July 4th, Janet and Heather are summoned by the Mind Flayer who melts down all the Flayed including Janet and her daughter, except her husband who was killed by Jonathan Byers earlier, to make itself bigger and stronger, resulting in the death of Janet.


Janet is calm and collected and a loving mother and wife. She listens and always respects other peoples opinions and thoughts. This is shown as she is happy to invite someone over for dinner if it benefits her daughter or makes her happy.

After Janet is possessed by the Mind Flayer, she starts to act strange, mainly because of how the Mind Flayer was controlling her and being part of his hive mind.
