11 burning questions that 'Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 2' higher reply

The month-long anticipate Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 2 is sort of over, and to say...

The month-long anticipate Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 2 is sort of over, and to say we’re excited to return to Hawkins could be an understatement.

The primary seven episodes of Stranger Issues 4 had been a jam-packed spectacle. They launched sinister villain Vecna, expanded the present’s story to Russia and the American West, and kick-started the Kate Bush Renaissance. Nonetheless, in addition they raised a ton of questions. And I crave solutions as a lot as Vecna craves traumatized souls.

From our wildest plot theories to our burning character queries, listed here are the 11 largest questions we’ve got going into Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 2.

1. Is Nancy OK?

The sharpest cliffhanger from Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 1 is the destiny of Nancy (Natalia Dyer). On the finish of episode 7, Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) transported her into his Thoughts Lair and confronted her about her guilt over Barb’s loss of life. Normally, this might be the half the place Vecna would brutally homicide his sufferer. However the trailer for Quantity 2 reveals Nancy wanting alive and properly… at the least for now.

Nancy’s survival should imply that her pals play her favourite track for her and permit her to flee, similar to with Max and “Operating Up That Hill.” However who is aware of what track to play? Is it Steve (Joe Keery), who she’s been reconnecting with this season? Or is it Robin (Maya Hawke), who we noticed going via Nancy’s cassette tapes earlier within the season?

2. Is Vecna Eleven’s father?


One fan principle that is arisen through the hole between Stranger Issues episodes is that Vecna is Eleven’s organic father. Henry Creel/Quantity One would have been on the lab whereas Eleven’s mom Terry was there. At one level, he even tells Eleven he knew her mom. May this imply that Eleven’s extra-strong powers come from Vecna being her father?

There are just a few issues with this fan principle that make it unlikely to be confirmed. For starters, Eleven’s father is canonically a person named Andrew Wealthy, who dated Terry earlier than dying within the Vietnam Battle. Andrew is rarely talked about within the present, however he’s launched within the Stranger Issues novel Suspicious Minds, which follows Terry’s time within the MKUltra program. Stranger Issues actually might diverge from the novelization, however I doubt they’d mess with the canon an excessive amount of.

The opposite drawback with Vecna and Eleven being associated is that it will be a boring selection — basically the Stranger Issues equal of Rey being a Palpatine. Vecna’s manipulation of Eleven in Hawkins Lab is already fascinating with out him being her father. Hopefully, Stranger Issues will keep away from the shock relative cliché.

3. How will Stranger Issues deal with Will’s queerness?


Followers have lengthy been speculating that Will (Noah Schnapp) is homosexual, and that he has emotions for Mike (Finn Wolfhard). This season has already hinted at Will’s emotions, with the point out of the portray that he is been engaged on for Mike however by no means really provides him. Elsewhere, producers and forged members have weighed in on the subject, and the final consensus seems to be that Stranger Issues 4 will deal with Will’s emotions for Mike in its last episodes.

Here is hoping it is as efficient and respectful as Robin’s coming-out scene in Season 3.

4. Do Joyce, Hopper, and Murray escape Russia?


Joyce (Winona Ryder), Hopper (David Harbour), and Murray (Brett Gelman) have lastly reunited in Russia, however what occurs now?

Keep in mind, Joyce and Murray crash-landed the aircraft they flew in on, that means they’re stranded deep behind enemy traces. Somebody had higher have a foolproof escape plan up their sleeves, in any other case, we might be taking a look at much more time in Russia (which has already proved to be the season’s most tiring plotline).

Severely, I simply need Joyce to reunite together with her boys and have a chill time for just a little bit.

5. Does Eleven formally have her powers again?


Eleven’s (Millie Bobby Brown) whole storyline this season has revolved round making an attempt to get her powers again. To do this, she needed to take part within the Nina Mission, which confirmed her repressed reminiscences from her time in Hawkins Lab. By the top of her earlier classes, she regained some management over her powers. Now that she’s unlocked her reminiscences of the Hawkins lab bloodbath, has Eleven unlocked her powers to their full potential?

And in that case, does that energy set embody some handy-dandy teleportation expertise? As a result of it is a lengthy method from Nevada to Indiana, and Eleven’s pals in Hawkins might positively use her assist.

6. Why do the Russians have a Demogorgon?


Presumably, the Russians are planning on utilizing it as a weapon, proper? Nonetheless, primarily based on the trailer for Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 2, it looks as if the Demogorgon is not the one Upside Down menace the Russians have in captivity. We additionally see glimpses of one thing that appears just like the Thoughts Flayer locked in a glass cage.

Odds are, this additional complicates Joyce and co.’s already unlikely escape.

7. Why has Vecna returned now?


It has been seven years since Eleven despatched Vecna into the Upside Down, so why is he simply making his resurgence now?

Maybe he is simply been regrouping and getting used to his new squelchy tentacles. Or maybe he and the Thoughts Flayer wished to attend till Eleven was out of Hawkins earlier than attacking once more. Nonetheless, there have been loads of possibilities to wreak murderous havoc since Vecna was banished. Why wait all this time? One thing’s not including up.

8. Is Ms. Kelly the steerage counselor working for Vecna?


What is the cope with Hawkins Excessive’s steerage counselor Ms. Kelly (Regina Ting Chen)? She’s had direct contact with all of Vecna’s victims, and she or he knew about their previous traumas and the indicators of Vecna’s cruse taking maintain. A fan principle posits that that is no counseling-related coincidence: What if Ms. Kelly has been working for Vecna, and has been letting him know which highschool college students he ought to go after subsequent?

Including to this fan principle is the truth that Ms. Kelly wears a necklace formed like a clock on a key. This looks as if a direct reference to Vecna and the Creel home clock — which itself has a keyhole that would theoretically match up with Ms. Kelly’s necklace.

Does Ms. Kelly simply have oddly related style in jewellery? Or is she secretly sporting a Vecna-related talisman? We’ll discover out quickly.

9. No matter occurred to Vickie, Robin’s love curiosity?


Keep in mind college band member Vickie (Amybeth McNulty)? Robin was fully crushing on her within the season’s first episode, however we’ve not heard from her since. In all probability as a result of Robin’s been off making an attempt to save lots of the world, comprehensible. Nonetheless, McNulty is credited on IMDb as showing within the season’s last two episodes. How giant of a job she’ll have is unclear, however this is hoping she joins up with the Hawkins gang for at the least just a little bit.

Severely, it will be prison to waste the lead of Anne with an E on one episode.

10. How is the basketball workforce’s Hellfire Membership hunt going?


The Hawkins Excessive basketball workforce, led by jerky jock Jason (Mason Dye), has been occurring a rampage via Hawkins in a misguided try and avenge Chrissy’s (Grace Van Dien) homicide. They’re trying to seek out members of the Hellfire Membership, together with its chief Eddie (Joseph Quinn). This explicit plotline did not seem in episode 7, so episodes 8 and 9 will get us on top of things — the Quantity 2 trailer features a temporary shot of Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) combating Jason, so we all know for positive that their paths cross.

The basketball workforce’s witch hunt is closely impressed by the real-life Satanic Panic of the ’80s. Eddie specifically is predicated on Damien Echols, a member of the West Memphis Three, a bunch of excessive schoolers accused of homicide. If the basketball workforce or police catch him, will he share Echols’s destiny of being arrested? Or will the Hawkins crew discover a strategy to save him, and themselves?

11. Is Steve Harrington going to die?


Look, it is the query on all of our minds. Will Steve, beloved mom to all of Hawkins youth, chew the mud in these final two episodes?

He already had a fairly scary encounter with some Demobats. Followers are satisfied that that was simply the warm-up for Steve’s grand finale. The excellent news is, co-showrunner Ross Duffer has mentioned that Steve is not going to die from his Demobat chew. The unhealthy information is that he did not rule out his loss of life completely.

In fact, I will be gutted if any of our predominant characters die. But when the present misplaced Steve — a personality who really went from zero to hero — it will be an awesome tragedy for all Stranger Issues followers in all places. Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 2 cannot arrive quick sufficient, as a result of we positively want closure.

Stranger Issues 4: Quantity 2 is streaming on Netflix July 2.
