When the Duffer brothers released 'Stranger Things' in 2016, they didn't realise how much of a worldwide phenomenon it would eventually become. The TV show about a group of teenagers fighting against supernatural forces became a favourite among viewers and critics, and jump-started the careers of the cast of newcomers.
And now in its fourth season, 'Stranger Things' has increased the stakes and the heart in the story considerably. Netflix released 7 episodes of season 4 of 'Stranger Things' on May 27, with the last 2 episodes set to air on July 1.
The fourth season has been a roller coaster ride, increasing the mythology of what happens in Hawkins, along with posing more questions about what's to come.
So, here are 8 questions that 'Stranger Things' needs to answer in the season 4 finale:
What song will save Nancy from the Upside Down?
In the seventh episode, Nancy was stuck in the Upside Down with Vecna, and had no way of getting out. Earlier in the season, we saw that music had the power to fight against Vecna's curse. Max previously escaped from Vecna with the help of the song 'Running up that Hill' by Kate Bush. So, what song will save Nancy from the Upside Down?
How did the Russians get a Demogorgon?
The last time we saw a Demogorgon was in season 3, when Hopper and Joyce closed the gate under the Starcourt mall. But, this season Hopper fights against a Demogorgon in a Russian prison. How did they get it? Did they build a new gate?
Why is the Upside Down stuck in time?
When Nancy, Steve, Robin and Eddie enter the Upside Down, they realise that the entire dimension is stuck in time. The Upside Down is apparently stuck in a time before 1983, a time before the hijinks of season 1. Why is the Upside Down stuck in time, and at that specific time?
Why is Vecna only now killing people in Hakwins?
It is revealed that Henry Creel a.k.a Vecna was cast into the Upside Down right before Eleven was found by the group in season 1. If that is the case, why did Vecna wait 3 years to start killing people in Hakwins?
Where did One's powers come from?
It is revealed in the series that Eleven's powers are the result of illegal experiments conducted on her mother while she was pregnant. If that's the case, where did One's powers come from?
Will the Nina Project help Eleven get her powers back?
During the run of the fourth season, Eleven attempts to get her powers back with the help of Dr Brenner and Dr Owens in the Nina Project. Although there are some hints of her regaining her powers, it is not yet clear if she will regain her powers back fully.
Who's in charge: Vecna or the Mindflayer?
Dustin theorises, that Vecna might play the role of a "four-star general" to the Mindflayer. But Vecna used to be human. Henry Creel a.k.a One a.k.a Vecna was cast into the Upside Down by Eleven. And, it didn't seem like there were any other creatures besides Vecna in the Upside Down. So did Vecna create all the creatures? Or is he just a pawn for the Mindflayer?
Who's going to die in the season finale?
Hints from the cast and the creators have pretty much assured us that a main character is going to die in the season finale. Who is it going to be? Last we saw, Steve was pretty badly hurt by the Demobats, Nancy was stuck in the Upside Down with Vecna, and Will and the gang were on the run from Lt. Sullivan.
Netflix has also released a trailer for the last two episodes of the series. And by the looks of it, the audience is in for a wild ride!
