Stranger Things Season 4 was pretty much different from the previous ones. We got to see a number of new heroes in season 4. Be that the very loved Eddie Munson or the smuggler Yuri whose change of heart, in the end, dropped our favorites safe and sound to Hawkins. This season was terrifying in every god damn sense and waiting for the final and fifth season is apparently the most difficult thing as of now.
Season 4 for real took away a lot from us and moving past Eddie Munson’s demise is the most heartbreaking of all. One cannot overlook the act of bravery he kept in front at the very end of the volume. However, this might not be the last time we are witnessing him playing the much iconic ‘Metallica.’ Who said only Jim Hopper could come back to life, even Eddie Munson can.
Joseph Quinn teases Eddie Munson’s return in Stranger Things Season 5
Eddie Munson played by Joseph Quinn for the whole season was no less than a coward trying to run away from troubles. However, in the very end, he came back to fight and die like a hero. Even though he tried his level best to save the town from despair, ironic is Hawkins hates him and sees him as no less than a murderer. We truly wish he’d get a better end in the final season. Talking of his fate in the final season might sound stupid but as per reports, we might get to see him again. Yes, you read that right, during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Joseph Quinn opened up about his character’s death for the very first time.
“I think that’s such a big part of Eddie’s story,” Quinn says of Eddie’s heroic end. “It’s a redemption tale. I think he’s completely haunted by his inability to do anything to save Chrissy and how powerless he was at that moment. And obviously being blamed for that murder is devastating and then having to go into hiding. I think he gets a little bored with feeling pathetic and unable to do anything. And then at some point in episode 8, a switch flips, and he decides that he’s going to prove himself. The opportunity then arises, but he has to pay the ultimate price. But he proves to himself that he certainly isn’t a coward.”
Even though it won’t be any less of a miracle to see Eddie return for the final season but looking at Max’s and Jim’s fate in the story one can imagine him getting a revival. Here’s what Joseph Quinn had to say about Eddie’s return.
“You know, anything is possible, and I’d be up for anything,” Quinn says. “So yeah, we’ll see.”
Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 aired on Netflix on 1st July and the whole season is now available to stream on Netflix.
