I'm pretty shocked. Waiting for season 5. My brain is exploding 🤯 No sleep for me tonight!

Plastic String:
To me, it looks like the ending scenes were a bit rushed. It would have been good to see Hopper farewell to Enzo and Yuri. Also his return to Hawkins seemed rushed somehow, we didn't see the reaction of any of the characters when he arrives except for 11, and considering everyone thought he was dead that's pretty strange. We didn't see anyone of the main characters mourning for Eddie except Dustin, and we didn't see any more Dr. Owens.

As sad as it is seeing Eddie’s death only be shown through Dustin and him still being seen as the murderer, I’m glad he went out the way he did. A hero
hamza souida
hamza souida:
Eddie's character was written so beautifully, many are upset that he will never be recognised as a hero but that's for me what makes him even more of a hero, a hero does not seek recognition people may hate him or love him but he'll still do what is right.
Miguel Dorado
Miguel Dorado:
Why does everyone forget that Brenner said that he “consumes” people? It seems pretty clear that he still has the memories and people inside him and if Vecna killed Max then Vecna has her memories and mind
Evan
Evan:
When Eddie said "I didn't run this time, right" I was tearing up 😢😢
Jay Gray
Jay Gray:
I think the other “sister” eleven met up with in the previous season that also has powers will probably come into play for this battle against Vecna. El is powerful but this is beyond JUST her at this point.
Alexander Dumas
Alexander Dumas:
Brenner trying to carry 11 to safety and being unable and then her standing on her own two feet and taking a plane down both literally and metaphorically sent the message that she can fly on her own unlike what Brenner said. It’s even more poignant that she takes down something that can fly.
Signe Aarøe Jørgensen
Signe Aarøe Jørgensen:
Noah Schnapp gets only a few scenes, and he's still the stand-out for me. He's such a talent. Can't wait to see him do other projects.

HueLikesBlue:
I believe that will is gonna play a bigger role in season 5. He wasn’t one of the main characters unlike in the past seasons and I feel like season 4 was his upbringing season since he wasn’t as active compared to other characters. Also I hope for the 5th season they fix his haircut they did him mad dirty.
Tara Barela
Tara Barela:
Honestly disappointed in how little they explained things with Will. I've always wondered all of these seasons why Will? Why take Will? Idk maybe they will explain it in the next season I hope!! Also hope and El being reunited made me so so so happy
LuckyTiger
LuckyTiger:
Max is in a coma but not dead. Vecna/001 technically “killed” her, but eleven somehow saves her. Eleven then goes into Max’s mind but can’t find her. Remember in the massacre scene 001 told eleven that thei as in the kids are not dead but still in his head. Papa also mentions how he consumes the people he kills. My theory is that Max is in his head and since her body is still intact she can be saved but the others cant.
Sam Gamgee
Sam Gamgee:
I loved the Hopper sword scene - he did the Aragorn at Black Gate pose and that was pretty sick
Chrispyy_
Chrispyy_:
Caleb and Sadie’s scene was phenomenal. I actually teared up
skittle-chan
skittle-chan:
This is the greatest series of all time, cant wait for season 5, but still sad about how Eddie died :(
Marissa S
Marissa S:
I’m honestly low key bummed they didn’t kill Max. Her “Death Scene” in the last episode was so powerful and I choked up and cried…but then to see her in a coma a minute later…it kinda took away from the emotional impact of the prior scene. Killing off a fan favorite character who fought so hard all season would have been a risky, but applauded move in my eyes. Sadie is a phenomenal actress so I get why they want to keep her around. But, they need to actually commit to a characters death if they are gonna portray one.
Gaz S
Gaz S:
The scene with Will and his brother was beautifully done.
AnonyMouse
AnonyMouse:
I really didn't think Eddie would die like that. And the earthquake scene was 10/10 💯
SEARCH4TRUTH
SEARCH4TRUTH:
I straight balled my eyes out when Eddie died and when Lucas cried as he held Max. I'm glad that Mike finally told El that he loved her because with everything she's gone through in her life she really needs to hear it from someone who really means it. I was so glad that El reunited with her dad that was a great vibe.
angeluvvs ♡
angeluvvs ♡:
vol. 2 was crazy. i cried half the time. the last episode with eddie at the end, i was crying..so much. he was my favorite character. and max, when i thought she died..i was in tears.
Lisa Sheldon
Lisa Sheldon:
Will still has a connection to the Upside Down, I believe that season 5 will see him die to save the rest of them, Vecnas power diminished when the demogorgon and demodogs were torched, may be Will has to die to finish him off for good.
Xethios
Xethios:
When Vecna “killed” Max, he stole her mind as well as her memories. Now how did she get back? Well, I think that Eleven entered her mind after it was emptied by Vecna and refilled it with memories that she shared with her. This is why the scene where El goes back and sees Max’s past is shown. That scene is shown so that Eleven can hold more of max’s “important” memories which also make up her identity. By having those identity-making memories of Max, I assume Eleven was able to revive her memories, then mind and ultimately Max herself in the upside down — then the Coma in the real word.
That’s my theory, and I think it is very much foreshadowed.
Nutt Bustington
Nutt Bustington:
I think Max's mind being empty at the end was a sign of what they've been saying all season, that he basically absorbs his victims, and like the others Max ended up being absorbed into his being and is basically gone.

until they finally kill his ass in season 5 which will probably return Max's consciousness to her. or at least that's what I hope ends up happening. I genuinely can't stand that they faked us out like that just end up killing her anyway. AND EDDIE. they weren't even able to prove he was innocent.
JJ DD
JJ DD:
But we still need an explanation as to why the dark energy known as the Mindflayer existed in the first place? I understand that Vecna/Henry harnessed it's power and molded it into his image of the shadow monster but it doesn't really explain it's origins. The Mindflayer seems like a form of dark matter, very alien or God-like. We also need an explanation as to why Henry developed psychic powers as a child as well.
Bethy
Bethy:
I have a feeling that it will all come down to Will and Eleven in the very end. It began with Will, it's going to end with him. Whether he becomes the next bad guy in the end, or... I don't know...
AAALRGD
AAALRGD:
Eddie's death killed me. And the part seeing Dustin and Eddie's uncle stabbed me right in the heart.

I hope Eddie is seen as the hero he is

T[A]P Me!! To Have [S]EX With Me:
Why does everyone forget that Brenner said that he “consumes” people? It seems pretty clear that he still has the memories and people inside him and if Vecna killed Max then Vecna has her memories and mind
Steven Ayala
Steven Ayala:
I loved that scene in the end when everyone, even though they aren’t together, are attacking the bad guys simultaneously.
It beautifully shows that the group ALSO ACT AS A HIVE weakening Vecna while Eleven takes him down.
DL SWYER
DL SWYER:
I was so mad that only Dustin was talking about Eddie, the rest just didn’t bring it up and it confused me, seemed like a type of plot hole tbh. They just totally forgot that he was one of the group
Anakin Skywalker
Anakin Skywalker:
Best Stranger Things season EVER!! I am so glad I got to experience it the day it came out!! Both vol.1 and vol.2! The quality felt better than most movies nowadays. I can't wait to see what they do with the characters and the story in season 5!!
Matt Selph
Matt Selph:
for max’s scene in the snowball, i thought it was a pretty interesting choice that they chose the song “every breath you take” because in the scene, the lyrics go, “every move you make, every bond you break, every step you take, ill be watching you” which implies that vecna can be watching her anywhere and anytime.
Scott Broome
Scott Broome:
I was heartbroken when I saw Max’s limbs distort as Vecna began to take her, but with Eleven reviving her, albeit soulless, she will play a role in season 5 for sure. I also think her vision will return. When Vecna had her at Billy’s grave, her eyes went white. Same with Nancy when he showed her the future to come. As soon as his possession ceases, their vision returns. Because Vecna technically succeeded in ‘consuming’ Max, her body is empty. A shell. When he is defeated in season 5, I’m confident Max will return.
Robert Durham Music
Robert Durham Music:
I feel max dying was more impactful than being revived. The revive felt a bit of a cheat.
FruityCobblestone
FruityCobblestone:
When I finished volume two my heart just sank you for Max. Just hearing her say “I don’t want to die. I’m not ready.” With the pure fear in her voice. It was the first time she had actually sounded terrified in the series. It was the first time she took in that she might actually die. I must admit that if they killed off Max my Netflix account would’ve gone with her.
USA BALL
USA BALL:
This is definitely the best season. This season brought to much excitement and fear to the characters. The ending is such a cliffhanger
Aman M S
Aman M S:
This finale really had an Empire Strikes Back vibe, especially with ending where the villains win and the heroes are at their weakest spot.
Luke undergoing training with Yoda similar to the whole Project Nina thing (even the scene where Eleven lifts that chamber totally parallels Luke trying to lift the X-wing).

Luke leaving the training to face Vader despite Yoda warning that he's not ready yet, just like how Eleven ran off to face Vecna despite Brenner claiming that she's not ready yet, only for Luke/Eleven to face defeat under Vader/Vecna.

It ends with Han Solo being captured by the Empire and frozen in Carbonite, kinda like how ST ends with Max in a coma.

Even their story structures are kinda similar, with the heroes being separated for the majority of the story (Luke/Eleven undergoing training while Han & Leia/the Hawkins gang are fighting the Empire/Vecna)
Justin H
Justin H:
I think the season had its drawbacks but knocked out of the park overall in terms of the emotion and the characters. Can’t wait for season 5.
Hounth
Hounth:
Regarding what happened to Max, I'm pretty sure Eleven used her powers to make her heart beat again. It was said by Lucas that Max's heart stopped beating for a minute, and then started beating again, that's what makes me think that
Livmustdie
Livmustdie:
RIP Eddie, you were on the show for such a short time yet had the entire world rooting for you 😓
Adir Mann
Adir Mann:
So when Will says it was him all along, did it mean that Vecna kidnapped him? I think from my understanding it was probably Vecna behind the scenes, harnessing the power of the upside down (shaping the mind flair) into the spider- them having a mutual relationship etc
Alok Upadhyay
Alok Upadhyay:
Eddie's death literally made me cry. I'm so glad Max survived. OMG! Such a amazing action packed epic season finale that was. This entire season is just perfect.

When Maxine's limbs started breaking 💔. Thought Eleven would get there in time.

I was literally screaming at my TV screen when Max's legs were getting twisted. That scene was intense.

John JohnRN86
John JohnRN86:
This is how you do a season. Hello GOT and Disney plus shows and other shows that had disappointing seasons! Volume 1 was so good and left me wanting more. They didn’t make us wait a year . They gave us a movie-length end to the season. This is how you do fight/battle scenes.
Mates Kostka
Mates Kostka:
I dont know if I am the only one, but I expected more from these two eps…feel like it is missing something and my expectations were much higher..
IsThatAKingFisher
IsThatAKingFisher:
I was a little bit disappointed with the last episode, Vecna didn’t really show his power enough for me and I love Eddie but he wasn’t a big enough character to die for me, I expected him to die! So expected for season 5
MrOnionRing
MrOnionRing:
When dustin was talking to Eddies uncle, I kept thinking to myself that he NEEEDS to refer to him as a hero and when he actually did it was very fulfilling.
Also a part of me thinks that how Vecna can *take* someones entire essence and memories, that Eleven could *give* apart of her life force. I am hoping that in season 5 Max gets some of Elevens powers and they become a duo to take down Vecna's shadow form. She is one of the most negatively effected by Vecna and I think it would be perfect to allow Max to have some superpowers so she can channel her grief into taking Vecna down. Max really came from the left field in becoming such a powerful core member of the show and this season she quickly elevated herself to one of my favourite characters. As her limbs were being broken i was a complete WRECK!!! Sadie SInk as an actress is truly a masterclass. I am forever changed by this season of Stranger Things.
Shampy_Shoe
Shampy_Shoe :
This season finale. I... am speechless. This was so fun and exciting to watch, I can't wait for season 5.
Jana Hinnawi
Jana Hinnawi:
I was shocked seeing everything in this season, the most believed scene is when lucas is wakeing up max saying "Max stay with me" that scene was rly powerful and emotional
Lukas Franco
Lukas Franco:
Honestly, my gut feeling is that Max isn’t going to wake up in season 5. It just feels like she’s supposed to be dead, but El just didn’t want to accept it. So while she may have saved her physical body, I’m not sure if her mind is coming back.
GamefreakRX
GamefreakRX:
I think the biggest revelation is the fact that the "Mind Flayer" never existed and was Vecna the whole time. I'm not sure I like this retcon, but it makes sense if they want "001" to be the main antagonist as he's the foil to El. Though I hope in season 5 we get full clear info on what the "Shadow" clouds are and where they came from.
Sad Dany
Sad Dany:
I really like how they made all of the groups - albeit very apart from each other - collectively contributed for defeating Vecna.
Spazzy Magee
Spazzy Magee:
The most upsetting part for me is Eddie died being thought of as a murderer when he was truly a hero😔

ProdKamoReef
ProdKamoReef:
The Piggyback was probably one of the best pieces of television I’ve ever watched in my life!!! Emotion, tears, excitement, fear, anger, happiness, joy, frustration EVERYTHING 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 I can’t believe it has been Vecna since the start 🤯🤯🤯
PEEYA Says YES
PEEYA Says YES:
Here are my theories I hate how Eddie and Max (yes I think she’s dead) died but I think their deaths will become the central issues on the next season. Joyce, Jonathan and Nancy will be busy with Wil because I strongly believe that Wil is connected to the upside down and he might be used by Vecna. Lucas and Erica will be pretty busy with Max cause if she ain’t dead I think she will have some super powers or something. Maybe she would have heightened senses because she lost her sense of sight. El might help them locate Max but if not I think she’s either trapped or dead. Dustin’s going to be busy with trying to make Eddie be remembered as a hero by the town of Hawkins. Steve and Robin might him with these. Lastly, I think Wil will die next season
Eva Esnerova
Eva Esnerova:
Help me understand, what Eddie's sacrifice achieved or was supposed to achieve? He and Dustin had to lure away the bats away from the Creel house which they did. When they start getting inside the trail, why not just run to the real world to safety? Their phase, their part of the plan was done, the plan was moving on. How would the bats being inside the trail slow down/hinder the overall plan? Sorry, cannot wrap my mind around this.
I understand what purpose Eddie' s death played in his arc and also for showing the situation is serious but I don't understand what exactly he died for...
Lucas Burghardt
Lucas Burghardt:
This is by far the best season so far, this ending was one of the best endings I ever seen in any show out there in the world. Everything is so well written, music, production, effects, story and so on. This ending gave me chills, tears and exitment for the future of this show this is the first time in stranger things that the evil have won the battle but that dosent mean they will win the war. it´s going to be epic in season 5 when the invasion starts and the final boss battle is happening. Can´t wait only 2 years too go!
Chelsea Templeton
Chelsea Templeton:
An amazing season. Anyone else catch the nod to The Matrix with Will’s speech to El while she was fighting Vecna mirroring Trinity’s speech to Neo when he was fighting Smith? I love how the Duffer brothers have used elements of so many great films while still making something so original. Can’t wait for Season 5!
Craig Maxted
Craig Maxted:
Eddie was amazing and the guitar scene was epic! Loved he's character and the fact that he won over alot of us in a short time also love how the upside down world is now merging into Hawkins gonna make season 5 very interesting
Diecies
Diecies:
I love the editing and how good of quality this video is keep it up!
Malia Rachel

When Eleven crashed that helicopter, CHILLS! Also when she locked eyes with Vecna for the first time, literal chills
A. Bardhan
A. Bardhan:
Just finished watching volume 2...can't wait for S5...I think they will show what happened in those 3 days in the ending and I hope they show Kali in the next season.
A Turner
A Turner:
Have always felt a hole in the series with the brief appearance of 8. Can't help but get the feeling she could possibly return. Maybe to combine forces with 11 to end Vecna for good.
Weirdo101
Weirdo101:
I actually cried at the end because of the emotion of the characters
Destination Cube
Destination Cube:
Vecna said that in season 3 he siphoned her powers to use it this season. if he is able to do that i wonder what all Eleven can truly do. I hope in season 5 they show how she brought Max back.
Annabel Collister
Annabel Collister:
I still believe Will has a connection with Vecna and the upside down in a bad way. I think season 5 he will somehow betray his friends.
Sankalp
Sankalp:
I think Max is tied to this in more ways than previously thought. Perhaps, One/Henry/Vecna is residing within her. I hope the group is not split in season 5. I have a feeling that either Steve or Jonathan will be killed off. Will Byers and El also could be killed.
Noxtrath
Noxtrath:
Max's scene on the last episode was SO powerful and the acting was spot on cant wait for the next season
Christian Marvello
Christian Marvello:
my only problem with ST is that they can't write good deaths/fair ones. Yes, I am salty about Eddie's death however this isn't just about Eddie. You can tell by every death each season that the deaths are unnecessary and unfair and u can tell that the duff bros are afraid to kill a fan-favorite character hence hopper not dying in season 3. Benny, Bob, Barb, Alexi, Jason, and now Eddie unfortunately all died in their season of introduction. Since ST is such a popular show all the characters including the main 6, the older kids, the adults, and ERICA that if they kill off character it could either impact the show or fans will be very sad and disappointed, however it has to be done at some point. I am amazed that after all the shit they have gone through this season alone that none of the main main characters died, seems too good to be true. BTW GOOD NEWS JASON DIED 🤪😁
Definition SuperVillain
Definition SuperVillain:
My problems with Season 4 vol.2:
- Where is Enzo and peanut butter guy?
- They acted like Hopper's return is like someone coming home in an airport
- Basketball bully guy should've finally realized that he was wrong the whole time
- Only Dustin and Mr. Munson cared about Eddie who literally sacrificed
- El should've meet Angela again with her power
- Did Steve, Robin and Nancy just botched El's moment to kill Vecna?
- Will's always look sad everytime
Guyrza
Guyrza:
Is it just me who is sometimes frustrated by the turns the show takes? All this time we thought that the main villain was the mind flayer, but it turns out to be a cloud of smth created by Vecna. Worst part is, it feels like a decision they made after season 3, with no original plot or any clues in previous seasons. Plus the shadow monster is not explained at all. We dont get to see if it's a separate creation of 1, or his another form. We dont get to know the nature of this black thingy, we are not getting any clear answers whatsoever.
Another thing is the revival of Max by El. I understand that she an important character and has a plot shield, but I feel it would have been so much better if she died (from the emotional perspective).
I kinda miss the old days, season one where 1 demogorgon was an unstoppable beast who terrorized the heroes for the whole season. Now look at it, taken out by 1 guy with a sword (how did it even get there?!) in less than a minute
Jatin Gupta
Jatin Gupta:
During the confrontation with Nancy, Vecna showed her the visions of Hawkins fall and all of them came true by the end of this season, but he also showed a vision of Mike, Holly, Karen dying, so if his other visions come true, does that mean these three would be in horrible danger in S5???

*things I wish were resolved:*
-no date at enzos :(((
-no movie friday night for max and lucas
-jason should’ve realized eddie was good
-jonathan still lying.. character development much
-nancy not reallyyyy with anybody
-suzie and eden disappeared
-no get together to explain what everyone did
-no eddie justice, only dustin cared
-vicky x robin??
-will still in the closet
-they let vecna go, couldve kept shooting
-what happened to school counselor?!!?!
-where r enzo and yuri and murray??
-eleven shouldve met angela again
-eleven’s mom?!

no point in arguing since its just my opinion

When Lucas fought I was so scared!! That was incredible acting by him!!
R.I.P. Kobe
R.I.P. Kobe:
what if it wasn’t a demogorgon that kidnapped will but vecna? i also love that they made him the ultimate villain. he’s connected to everything they’ve been fighting against.
Andrei 123
Andrei 123:
This season was Amazing . can't wait for the next one
Russell
Russell:
The season finale was not what I hoped it would be. I think that fully killing Max would've been shocking. Instead, they played it safe and killed newbie Eddie.
Aysha Siddiqa Prapti
Aysha Siddiqa Prapti:
I've just finished volume 2. Mannnnn it was so intense. I mean what was that? Everything was so scary & traumatizing! Can't wait for season 5. I mean this season is the best season ever. Felt sad for eddie, but as dustin said eddie is definitely a super hero! I hope max will be get better soon in season 5. The way lucas and eleven trying to help her was the most wholesome friendship moment.
Maya Tata
Maya Tata:
One told El that her siblings weren't dead but they were with him and he pointed to his head. So I think the reason El can't find Max is because her mind is with Vecna's.
Muhammad Mufly
Muhammad Mufly:
For me season 4 is the best season for Stranger Things so far. It was so sad that Eddie died as a hero but not everyone see's him that way. Most Hawkins believe that Eddie is a murderer. And I also cried when Steve said that Nancy was there when dream about he and his family going on a vacation.
Ally Mayfield
Ally Mayfield:
I just came up with a theory, since Will got “chosen” after he had lost in D&D maybe the ending of season 5 could be them playing again but winning which then affects reality😌
Rika
Rika:
The actor Will really broke me into tears like literal tears when seeing him cry about his unrequited love towards Mike. I wish they dive more deep into his feelings for Mike the next season.

Volume 2 was EPIC! so excited for the final season to come!
PS - we were all praying Steve doesn't die that we forgot about Eddie! I swear I actually cried for his death!
mxdz35
mxdz35:
let me tell you, I cried for will, eleven, Brennar (dont know why), Eddie. But none of those compare to how i cried when max said “I dont wanna die, im not ready” she was my favorite character. I will never watch Netflix the same.
April Amante
April Amante:
I still don't understand how the Russians fit into Brenner's plan to reach 001? Am I missing something? Was he just having Eleven look for Soviets as a cover? Was Brenner the evil mastermind behind the entire government operation to rip these kids from their families to train them to beat Henry?

And how did the Russians get involved/access, and what was their goal?
Spaghetti_TNT
Spaghetti_TNT:
RIP Eddie😔 probably one of the best characters in stranger things, and one of the saddest deaths alongside Alexei and Bob.
Soham Banerjee
Soham Banerjee:
It seemed like EDDIE was forcefully killed ....I mean distractions could have been created in a many ways....why go for a kill... Couldn't accept that part 😭🙂
sxrcl
sxrcl:
easily one of my favorite episodes, eddies death was sad but directed in an amazing way. I feel like max is definitely gonna be used in season 5 and they didn’t kill her off for a reason her death impacted me 10x more than eddies mainly because i knew the character and liked her more than eddie but also because of her and lucas (my fav character) relationship and even though they aren’t dating he always made sure to still be there for her
Hajiro
Hajiro:
You know an antagonist is not really dead. When the protagonists doesn’t always go for the kill in the head.
Sam Holt
Sam Holt:
I was expecting a higher death count, especially the way the Duffer brothers were hyping it up
Skullface
Skullface:
Tbh I really like the theory that they did destroy Vecnas physical form but it turned to dust by the time they got down to where he would be so I think he probably did become in a spiritual form or something and merged with the mind flayer which he created
T J
T J:
This finale really had an Empire Strikes Back vibe, especially with ending where the villains win and the heroes are at their weakest spot.

Luke undergoing training with Yoda similar to the whole Project Nina thing (even the scene where Eleven lifts that chamber totally parallels Luke trying to lift the X-wing).

Luke leaving the training to face Vader despite Yoda warning that he's not ready vet, just like how Eleven ran off to face Vecna despite Brenner claiming that she's not ready yet, only for Luke/Eleven to face defeat under Vader/Vecna.

It ends with Han Solo being captured by the Empire and frozen in Carbonite, kinda like how ST ends with Max in a coma.

Even their story structures are kinda similar, with the heroes being separated for the majority of the story (Luke/Eleven undergoing training while Han & Leia/the Hawkins gang are fighting the Empire/Vecna)

I just finished volume 2 right now. My heart is beating so fast bc I had such a roller costar of emotions. I did not expect this ending. I cried bc my boy eddie died and my fav girl max got a bad coma or possibly died...

I really didn't think Eddie would die like that. And the earthquake scene was 10/10 💯
