The fourth season of Stranger Things returned for Volume 2 on Netflix last week, and people haven’t stopped buzzing about it ever since. Stick around for a spoiler-filled overview of the last two episodes, listing the characters who did—and didn’t—make it out alive.
Died: Jason Carver
Even though his actions were somewhat justified, Chrissy’s boyfriend Jason Carver was one of the most hated new characters, and no one shed a tear after his death scene.
Our favorite characters put up a good fight against Vecna, but he’s the show’s Big Bad and he’ll still be around in Season 5. Will confirmed that he’s injured and in pain, but that he can still feel his presence in Hawkins.
Died: Dr. Martin Brenner
After seeing Dr. Brenner torture Eleven and the other children, we weren’t too sad to see him go, but he redeemed himself a little by releasing El’s collar and helping her escape.
Lived: Max Mayfield
Max was the character we were most scared for coming into the last two episodes of Season 4. She almost lost the battle to Vecna, but there’s still hope for her—even though she’s in a coma right now.
Died: Eddie Munson
Stranger Things has a habit of introducing beloved new characters only to kill them off, but it was still heartbreaking to see Eddie Munson sacrifice his life for the greater good.
