It has been mere hours since the release of Stranger Things season 4 and people are already intensely talking about it. The new batch of episodes were full of thrilling moments. Many were lost in the last two episodes of the fourth season. And a lot was left rather ambiguous for a fifth and final season. Fans of the show are already discussing what can happen in Stranger Things season 5.
One of the hottest topics regarding the fourth season has been the last scene between Eleven and Max. Many people are wondering what happened to the girl who first broke Vecna‘s curse.
What will happen to Max in Stranger Things season 5?
There is no other to say this, but the Stranger Things 4 volume two was completely fire. Both the episodes were amazing, with the second one completely taking audiences on an emotional ride.
So much went down in the final episode of the fourth season that it is impossible to talk about it whole. However, the one thing many people are scratching their heads about is Max’s fate.
In the last episode, we saw Eleven saving save Max midway through Vecna’s horrible death ritual and resurrecting her when her heart stopped beating.
Max claims she can’t see or feel anything before (temporarily) dying. Eleven is unable to locate Max through mind-travel. Eleven’s not being able to locate Max has allowed multiple theories to be born.
Many think that Max has already died, while others feel she might be alive, but just like Robert Englund’s Victor Creel, she might lose her sight.
Thousands of theories are pouring in on Reddit. Some of them are.
- “100% Vecna moved to Max’ body. That’s probably why El couldn’t find her in the hospital, but hey, that’s just a theory”
- “she’s in a coma”
- “I thought when El couldn’t find her it was implying she went brain dead. Idk if this makes me more or less hopeful that Max lives”
These are all just theories and we will have a long wait till we find any answers. Stranger Things season 5 does not have an official release date as of yet. But late 2023 premiering seems the most likely.
