Eddie Munson

Poor Eddie! Much like Dr. Brenner and Billy, it was clear basically from the moment we met him that Eddie Munson wasn’t going to make it out of this story alive, and that’s for a few reasons. I personally didn’t think he had to die, but when you look at the whole arc of the season, Eddie was not making it out alive.

Eddie (Joseph Quinn) is, of course, accused of the gruesome murder of Chrissy (Grace Van Dien) early in the season, which kickstarts the manhunt for Eddie that nearly derails the plans of the heroes of Hawkins. Throughout the season, there were so many little breadcrumbs that hinted at Eddie’s death. He had such a great relationship with Dustin, and he learned to like Steve. And, the Duffers and the writers did such a good job of giving Eddie those moments to leave his mark on those around him (“Never change, Dustin Henderson. Promise me.”) and also redeem himself for his past actions (“I didn’t run away this time, right?”).

Eddie sacrificed himself to save the group by giving them more uninterrupted time to vanquish Vecna. Obviously, it didn’t quite go to plan, but thanks to Eddie, the rest of the gang was able to stop some of Vecna’s big plan.

Unlike Dr. Brenner, Billy, and Jason, Eddie was a beloved character. Everyone loved what he brought to the group, and it was so devastating when his death eventually happened.

There are some who still believe Eddie is going to come back as a vampire in Stranger Things season 5, but we think this is probably the end of the road outside of a flashback or a memory or something like that.

Stranger Things season 5 is starting production later this year. We’ll share more news about the new season as it comes up!
