The season finale of Stranger Things 4 will be released on Netflix on July 1st. These questions are still open.
The fourth season of “Stranger Things” is coming to an epic conclusion. The teaser for the final two episodes was released on Tuesday (June 21). While Kate Bush’s (63) “Running Up That Hill” is playing in the background, the Hawkins teenagers’ final fight with the dark and brutal Vecna is announced. But so close to the season finale, which will be available on Netflix on July 1, there are a few unanswered questions.
Warning, spoilers for all seasons of “Stranger Things”!
Who is Elf’s real father?
After Elf (Millie Bobby Brown, 18) escaped from the Hawkins lab, Police Chief Hopper (David Harbour, 47) took care of the little one and considered her his daughter from then on. In the lab, however, Elf called Doctor Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine, 63) “Dad” – just like all the other kids trained there. Is Brenner really the biological father of all these children – including Elf – or did he just let himself be called by that name to create a family atmosphere in the gloomy laboratory?
Why does Vecna kill people from Hawkins?
The victims of Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower, 33) have one thing in common: They are teenagers and attend Hawkins High School’s school psychologist. But why did he target this group? Does he want to lure Elf to him or do his victims have another meaning?
Where does Vecna get his powers from?
Vecna was once an apparently normal boy named Henry Creel. However, when he moved his family to a new house, he changed. He suddenly developed supernatural abilities that he later used to torment his family.
Elf’s abilities are a result of experimenting with LSD and sensory deprivation during her mother’s pregnancy. Does Henry Creel have a similar history that is not yet known? Was his father part of a chemical experiment while fighting in World War II?
Will a main character die in the last two episodes?
Will actor Noah Schnapp (17) hinted in an interview with “Insider” that a main character could die. He later spoke to Jimmy Fallon (47) about serial deaths. If these allusions are true, who could get it? Will it be Steve (Joe Keery, 30) who was seriously injured in the Upside Down? Or Nancy (Natalia Dyer, 27), who is now trapped in the Upside Down?
Why did time stand still in the Upside Down?
In season four, the teens find out that time has stood still in the Upside Down – right around the time Will disappeared back in season one. But why at this point in time? After all, Will isn’t the only one who got lost in the other world and was trapped there.
Did Vecna control the mind flayer from season three?
In season four, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo, 19) dubs Vecna as the Mind Flayer’s “Five Star General.” As a reminder, the Mind Flayer terrorized Hawkins in season three, claiming among others Max’s (Sadie Sink, 20) brother Billy (Dacre Montgomery, 27) as a victim. But wouldn’t it make more sense that Vecna was behind and controlling the Mind Flayer and Demogorgon to lure Elf to him?
