Season 5 is the final season. This is part 1 of S4 and part 2 is in July with the final two episodes of this season.

Well that's so much worse! Why hold back just 2 episodes? I thought it was going to be half and half, so seeing 7 in the first part I was looking forward to another 7

If it’s any consolation, the last two episodes are an hour and a half and two and a half hours. That’s probably why they didn’t do a whole 7 more…

Full Season Spoilers.

Spoiler!

Anyone else seen the theories that Vecna has been around since Season 1? 

  • 5:58 - That humanoid figure that Will sees in the darkness in the middle of the road which I completely forgot about.
  • 6:02 - When he falls off his bike, two clock chimes?
  • 7:15 - The latch comes off the door, AFAIK the Demogorgon's have no Telekinesis powers, Lol.

The plot really thickens in later episodes. Dear Billy had me on the edge of my seat. Dustin and Murray for S4 MVP's, lol. Eager to finish the season.

Episode 4 Spoilers.

Spoiler!

Sadie Sink became the best of the child actors for me, hope she has a good career, one of the best scenes across the entire series and most well acted, I didn't think she was going to be killed off at first, I was like, no way, they aren't going to kill her, then when that flashback sequence played I for a minute thought "oh shit, they're actually going to do it, no!"  

I'm glad they didn't, it was a beautiful metaphor for depression and surviving it.

Hope they don't kill off any characters Tbh. Not every show needs a death.

Spoiler!

Yeah, that scene immediately went into my Favorite Scenes playlist. Perhaps the best of the series. I went through the same back and forth as to whether or not they were actually going to kill her off. The final lingering shot of her running toward camera totally felt like they were setting up a sudden death just short of salvation. Beautifully done.



Another brilliant new character.

Indeed.

I'm wondering when that scene of him shredding in the upside down is coming. Will it be to save Nancy, bait Vecna out, or something else?

Yeah, maybe he plays Nancy's favourite song but I don't have a clue what her favourite song would be and if a rocker like Eddie would know how to play it, Lol.

Not all that surprising, as I recall the Duffer Brothers said they had the plot of the whole show mapped out before season 1 even released.



I didn't realize

Spoiler!
One, Vecna, AND Vecna's voice

were all the same actor. What a performance! That's Emmy level stuff.

Spoiler!


Just finished Part One at long last.

Holy moly what a wild ride. So many shows lose their mojo as they go and it's so gratifying to see Stranger Things slapping as hard as ever 4 seasons in.

For me it's a near perfect blend of serious darkness and entertaining cheese. The characters and actors are likeable as ever, the sense of time and place in impeccable, the final twist that ties the new villain into the origins of not just the program that created eleven but the connection between Earth and the Upside Down is cool as hell, and Max escaping Vecna to Running Up That Hill is some of the most dopamine-inducing television I have seen in a long, long time

Overall, if it can reach a climax worthy of the setup, this might just be my favourite season so far. The long wait has so far been worth it.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
