It’s just been over a month since the last two episodes of Netflix’s hit series ‘Stranger Things season 4 premiered, and fans of this show are still grieving the death of Eddie Munson mauled by so-called demobats.
The death of Eddie was so sudden that fans aren’t ready to accept it. Hence, one distraught fan named Maddy published a written plea that read: “This is a petition I have started to bring back fan favourite Eddie Munson.
“The Duffer Brothers have unfairly killed him off and many other fans and I think he deserves to be brought back and not just as a flashback, please sign this petition to spread awareness.” The petition has so far received thousands of signatures to bring back the character.
Nonetheless, that has not ceased fans theorizing about probable routes that Eddie could come back from the dead for the fifth season, with one certain theory appearing on Reddit has been circulating and since then many fans have shared their own theories.
The Duffers duo, the creators of the widely popular series have provided the Internet with some clues for the upcoming season after the final two episodes of the fourth season which ended on a major cliffhanger.
So, What is The Theory About? Is Eddie Really Dead?
Series star Joseph Quinn who plays Eddie informed RadioTimes.com that his end was “a brilliantly realized ending for a brilliantly written character” and “as an actor, you want characters with those kinds of arc”, so it unquestionably sounds as though Eddie Munson’s screen time on the series could be done for or is it?
Well, as far as the theory goes– Eddie will indeed return but as a VAMPIRE!
Of all the character deaths throughout the series, undeniably, the death of Eddie in season 4 of Stranger Things was possibly the saddest yet so far. Nevertheless, if Eddie truly is Stranger Things Kas, it’s greatly vital for the resurrection and would be in cue with the “Rebirth” redemption concept encircling his character arc. To put it simply, it’s not a bad idea or out of the narrative to bring Eddie back in the fifth season, that is only if he is meant to be Kas– a version of Stranger Things.
A dead character returning is not at all surprising. In fact, it would be a delight for fans to see their favorite character being revived. However, after numerous ideas and possible theorizing, fans are now pretty much convinced that their favorite character may still be alive and will most likely play a big part in overthrowing the vicious Vecna in the hit series concluding season.
