Stranger Things Has Already Foreshadowed Fan-Favorite Eddie’s Death From First Season

Stranger Things season 4 released the first volume last month, and the second volume is coming out really soon. While the fans wait for the second half of the latest season, let’s take a look at what all the season has given us so far. A really scary villain, a newfound love for Kate Bush, and the jab of nostalgia for those who were born in the 80s. But the series so widely loved has one issue, the makers, the Duffer Brothers, have trouble killing off characters, especially the important ones. So, the solution did they come up with? Introduce new characters and kill them off.

The series despite being based on a supernatural theme, with monsters from a dark mirror dimension, have had trouble killing off characters. Even the cast has complained about the same. In an interview, Miley Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp talked about it in an interview. The two said, “The Duffer brothers [show creators] are two Sensitive Sallys who don’t want to kill anyone off. We need to have the mindset of Game of Thrones. Kill me off! They tried killing David [Harbour] off and they brought him back!”

So, they have started a loop, to introduce characters only to kill them off, in the first season it was Barbara, Nancy’s friend. In the second season, it was Bob Newby, Joyce’s boyfriend. In the third season, it was Alexei, the Russian scientist. The creators just bring in a sacrificial lamb every season and you know they are going to die. These characters are usually kind-hearted and lovable. And in this season, the character who is similar is Eddie Munson.

The newest addition to the show and the leading member of the Hellfire club. Played by Joseph Quinn, he is what every cool kid in the 80s wished to be. But the tough exterior hides this really likable and kind young man. He does not mind hanging out with his band of outcasts and is the king of Dungeons and Dragons-loving nerds.

His sudden involvement with the group and in saving Hawkins from Vecna when really did not know many of the members of the Hawkins gang. It all hints that he is the next on the list. Plus, just like the previous characters, his death would not majorly impact the show. But it could be wrong and let’s really hope that we are wrong, but there are hints all over the place.

Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 will be out on July 1, 2022.
