Shawn Levy reveals his feelings about Eddie’s death!
In volume 2 of the fourth season of Stranger Things, kids gather to have a face-off with Vecna. They all have a plan to distract Vecna and kill him off. As fans were assuming and creating their own theories about who will not survive till the end, to our surprise, Eddie Munson dies.
Eddie and Dustin were the in-charge of distracting the demo-bats so that others can get into Vecna’s hideaway undiscovered. So, Eddie picks up the guitar and sings ‘Master of Puppets’. Now the demo-bats have their eyes on Dustin and Eddie. The kids are inside the house. Here, to save Dustin, Eddie throws him back to the portal to the real world before luring the winged minions away on a bike through the Upside Down. This time, he decided not to run away and fight the demon with all the courage he has.
Unfortunately, he didn’t survive, and Dustin was there with him when Eddie was counting his last breaths. Eddie asks Dustin, “I didn’t run away this time, right?” And Dustin consoles him, saying no. This heartbreaking scene still gives us the chills.
