How many tears did you shed during the last two episodes of Stranger Things season 4? Because we did a LOT of crying. While we were well aware there would be some casualties along the way this season, we still felt like we were sucker-punched when it came to our favorite characters taking their last breaths before our eyes in the Upside Down.
For weeks, fans have been theorizing on social media about who will be the one to die, and a rumor even came about stating we could expect five deaths from the show’s finale. Yet, we were still caught off guard by the season finale.
Spoilers ahead for Stranger Things season 4.
If you’ve already seen the last two episodes, titled “Papa” and “The Piggyback,” you’ll be well aware as to which characters were killed off. But if you’ve yet to see the new episodes (hello, what are you still waiting for?) then we’d suggest you come back to this article to avoid any spoilers. But if you’re just too curious and want to know ahead of time, then carry on reading.
Does Dustin die in Stranger Things season 4?
Many characters’ names were thrown into the hat as potential deaths for Stranger Things season 4 volume 2, and while we saw a number of theories for certain characters, one name we dreaded ever appearing was that of Dustin Henderson, portrayed by Gaten Matarazzo.
Dustin is by far one of our favorite characters on screen — with his hilarious comebacks, infinite knowledge, and catchy phrases, how could he not be? So when speculation began circulating that Dustin could be the one from the Upside Down gang to bite the bullet, we held our breath.
When the bats attacked, swarmed, and surrounded Eddie’s mobile home in the Upside Down we thought, “this is it” and closed our eyes as we expected the final blow to come. But it never did for Dustin, and it turns out that we were worrying over Dusty Bun when we should have been more worried about someone else.
So, no, Dustin Henderson doesn’t die in Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 — but we still had casualties close to the heart.
Who dies in Stranger Things season 4 volume 2?
We were warned. We all knew it would happen. Many even guessed correctly as to who from the gang would fall in Stranger Things season 4 volume 2. And yet, we were still unprepared.
The biggest tear-jerkers by far had to be when Eddie Munson died heroically fighting off the bats, and when Max Mayfield took her last breath in Lucas Sinclair’s lap. These were probably the biggest shockers, and although Max technically dies and is revives by Eleven, her fate is still up in the air. The other characters who also died in the last two episodes include Dr. Brenner, Jason Carver, and many innocent Hawkins citizens.
