Let’s cross our fingers that Vecna doesn’t find us first.
Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for Season 4, Volume 2 of the Netflix series, Stranger Things.
We Need Answering in Season 5 about all the questions that remained unanswered when it will be there for the fans on Netflix. The final two episodes of Stranger Things season 4 are now available on Netflix, and the citizens of Hawkins are once again staring down the barrel of disaster. Fans will have to wait until Season 5 to find out if our small-town young heroes will succeed for good after all their planning and struggle.
At least we have some answers to the countless questions raised by the seven episodes that make up Volume 1 of Season 4 of Stranger Things. For example, we now know where Upside Down had its start, and we also know what happened to Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). And boy, oh boy, were we chomping at the bit for any information to quench our thirst! However, there is a great deal of uncertainty about what will take place on everyone’s favorite mystery show with a 1980s theme. Before we are completely engulfed by the Upside Down, the upcoming season of Stranger Things needs to provide answers to the following 12 questions.
Questions We Need Answering in Season 5
What will happen to Hawkins?
This is the one that stands out the most. Following the revelation that Vecna/One/Henry (Jamie Campbell Bower) was successful in his plan to bring the Upside Down to Hawkins, the fourth season of Stranger Things comes to a close, and not a single fan of the show is not wondering what is going to happen to the town and the people who live there.
Are Vecna’s visions that she shared with Nancy (Natalia Dyer) actually glimpses into the future? How long until the clouds that Eleven and the rest of the group see completely engulf the whole town? What kinds of unspeakable atrocities might we anticipate Vecna’s rule to bring about? As of right now, the only things we can say for certain are that it won’t be nice and that it will involve a significant number of deaths.
How damaged is Vecna?
During the decisive fight of Season 4, Vecna is assaulted from multiple directions at once. In the outside world, Robin (Maya Hawke), Steve (Joe Keery), and Nancy strike him with Molotov cocktails and shotgun blasts while Eleven holds him back within Max’s (Sadie Sink) mind.
Eleven is played by Sadie Sink. But despite taking all of this damage, Vecna is still able to flee, and Will’s (Noah Schnapp) explanation makes it abundantly obvious to anyone who would have been confused about whether or not he died off-screen. Since Vecna is currently at large and Hawkins has been taken over by the Upside Down, all that we can do is keep our fingers crossed that the children have at least been able to inflict enough damage on him to make him more manageable in battle. To further elaborate…
How can Vecna be defeated?
The fourth season gave the impression that Vecna was practically unbeatable. It appears that he was aware of everything that was happening around him, yet he was still able to carry out his evil scheme in spite of the fact that the Hawkins children were engaged in covert scheming and that Eleven was interfering. He has an almost godlike level of all-encompassing knowledge. Because of this, we are naturally curious about the means by which Vecna can be defeated. Will El be able to defeat him using only her powers and with only a little assistance from her allies? Or might the Duffer Brothers have something else (or someone else) up their sleeves for the upcoming fifth season?
Will the Upside Down: Hawkins finally clear Eddie’s name?
In spite of all of the horrible events that have taken place in Hawkins over the course of the past four seasons, the people of the town have not gained any new knowledge. They continue to believe that a Satanic cult was responsible for the deaths of Chrissy (Grace Van Dien), Fred (Logan Riley Bruner), and Patrick (Myles Truitt), despite the fact that they believe that Starcourt Mall was destroyed in a catastrophic fire.
This is understandable given that the presence of the Upside Down is classified information held by the government, as well as the fact that satanic hysteria was true all the rage in the year 1986. Still, it is extremely upsetting to see Wayne Munson (Joel Stoffer), who has lost his nephew Eddie (Joseph Quinn), have to put up with the abuse of people who never really knew Eddie and think of him only as a devil-worshiping serial killer.
Not only is it heartbreaking to see Wayne Munson grieving the loss of his nephew, but it is also upsetting to see Wayne Munson having to endure the abuse. Since it is no longer possible to conceal the presence of Vecna and the Upside Down, it is possible that the name of the Munson family may finally be cleared.
Is Max really dead?
This is the fundamental question that has to be answered. The only reason it is at number 5 on this list is so that we may finish up with the Vecna thing before moving on to the rest of the characters. This is the sole reason it is at number 5. Vecna needed to make four murders before the barrier between worlds would become thin enough for him to pass through; the fact that he was successful in doing so is strong evidence that his final victim is already dead.
El utilized her abilities to bring Max back to life just as she was taking her last breath, and although she is in critical condition, she is still alive enough to be hospitalized. Max is said to be in a coma, which is the official diagnosis. According to Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), who describes the situation, her heart stopped beating for an entire minute, which indicates that she passed away and subsequently resurrected herself. Since Vecna had in fact killed four people, even though one of them is still alive, there is a possibility that he was able to pass the threshold through some sort of legal loophole. Who knows?
What about Eddie?
Okay, I’ll admit that this question contains a little bit of wishful thinking. After all, the circumstances surrounding Eddie’s passing were not quite as murky as those surrounding Max’s. In spite of this, there is no doubt that despite Eddie’s short tenure on Stranger Things, he became an indispensable component of the show’s emotional core. It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that he’s gone. But, hey, let’s not forget that we have never truly witnessed somebody passing away in the Upside Down. Let’s not forget that.
Since we are dealing with a whole separate parallel dimension here, there is no way to know how the cycle of life and death works in that part of the universe. In addition, Dustin, played by Gaten Matarazzo, did not return with the body to Hawkins, and Eddie is still presumed to be missing. In addition, if there is one thing that we have learned from Hopper’s (David Harbour) “death” in Season 3, it is that “no body, no crime.” If the Soviets were able to bring poor Jim all the way to Kamchatka while everyone thought he was dead, then perhaps Eddie is still stuck in the Upside Down in some other location.
Will Sullivan find Eleven?
Even in the event that Dr. Owens remains uncooperative, Sullivan will still have a respectable opportunity to determine the location of El. It’s likely that he’s already on his way to Hawkins; the only thing holding him up is the production schedule for Season 5. In order to keep El safe, Hopper, Joyce (played by Winona Ryder), and the kids are all taking preventative measures, and they do have some influential allies.
But despite this, Sullivan is a formidable opponent who cannot be ignored. It seems likely that he will locate Eleven, and if and when he does, the results might be catastrophic, particularly in light of the fact that the end of the world is drawing near. After all, we must not overlook the fact that he holds El responsible for all that has transpired thus far in connection with the Upside Down. It is impossible to predict how he will behave upon discovering her in a nearly wrecked version of Hawkins.
Will Nancy and Steve get back together?
Let’s move on to the more humorous portions of the show now that we’ve dealt with the more weighty concerns that needed to be addressed. During the course of Season 4, Nancy’s admiration for Steve has undoubtedly increased, and there is a compelling explanation for this development. Since the events of the first season, Steve has undergone significant growth, as Nancy herself reveals to Jonathan (Charlie Heaton).
He is not the same entitled popular boy that he used to be, and he has also made it pretty apparent that he has feelings for Nancy. In fact, he has even gone so far as to suggest that he wants to have a family with her. Given that Jonathan has been emotionally distant from his girlfriend and has frequently lied to her about his plans for the future, it is probable that Nancy is on the verge of having a change of heart about their relationship.
Are Robin and Vickie an item?
At the beginning of Season 4, Volume 2, it appeared as though Robin’s feelings for her bandmate Vickie, played by Amybeth McNulty, were destined to go unrequited for all of the time. However, after the alleged earthquake, the girls found each other again in the shelter where they were making peanut butter sandwiches, and the eccentric employee at the video store had a second chance at love. Can we call Robin and Vickie Hawkins’ new sweethearts now that Vickie is available and appears to be just as smitten as Robin is?
Is Will in love with Mike?
Ever before the first episode of Stranger Things aired, people have been interested in talking about Will’s sexuality. Although a significant number of viewers take this fan’s interpretation of his character to be correct, nothing regarding his gender identity or love interests has been established by the show as of yet. The viewers have acquired the most insight into this topic from a few statements made by Joyce in the first season concerning Will’s father labeling him “a queer.” Despite this, it does appear that things have become somewhat more understandable over the course of these most recent two episodes.
Will has expressed his views on being unique on several occasions, and every time he describes Mike’s love for Eleven, his chest appears to tighten and his heart appears to drop. At one point, he even turns his back on his friend in order to hide his crying from his view. It is clear that he is more than simply a young boy who is homesick to his friend. If fans have always had their suspicions that would have emotions for Mike, will Season 5 eventually prove those suspicions?
What role will Suzie and her family play in the upcoming apocalypse?
Even if she isn’t there with Dustin, Dustin’s brilliant girlfriend Suzie Bingham (played by Gabriella Pizzolo) has been an indispensable member of the Hawkins party ever since her arrival in Season 3 and this holds true even if she isn’t there with her boyfriend.
This home office queen first assisted Dustin and her pals by communicating with them over the radio and the phone; however, during Season 4, she was given the opportunity to collaborate in person with Mike, Will, and Jonathan. The audience was also given the opportunity to get to know her vast and vibrant family, particularly her goth sister Eden, played by Audrey Holcomb, who had a brief affair with Argyle (Eduardo Franco). With Suzie’s importance growing with each season, it’s possible that Season 5 will feature a larger role for both her and the Bingham family.
