All The Characters Who Died In The Stranger Things Season 4 Finale

There was a body count in the Stranger Things Season 4 finale and we've got the list right here.

Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2

Stranger Things Season 4 premiered a few days ago and it was an emotional rollercoaster for fans of the show. If you have seen the last episodes then you'd know that a few characters did not make it to the end. 

Before Volume 2 was even released, it was confirmed by the Duffer Brothers that there would be a body count at the end of season 4. 

Actor Joseph Quinn (Eddie) described the finale as "absolute carnage".

So, they were right and we've compiled a list of all the characters who died in the finale. Only two main characters died in the finale with one side villain death. Two character deaths are still uncertain at the moment.

Dr. Martin Brenner/Papa

Dr. Martin Brenner/Papa

Dr. Martin Brenner also known as Papa was the first main character to die. Eleven regained her psychic powers in the NINA tank and wanted to return to Hawkins to save her friends. However, Papa had other plans. He drugs Eleven and puts an electric collar over her neck. Not too long after that, the military breaks into the facility and unleashes some lead on a few sorry lab workers. It had first seemed like Papa and El had escaped but a helicopter shooter was waiting outside. The shooter then fatally shoots Papa.

Eddie Munson

Eddie Munson

Eddie Munson is the second main character to die. He dies a hero after fighting off a swarm of demo-bats to give the others enough time to sneak into Vecna's lair and set him on fire.

At first, Dustin and Eddie decide to run back into the real Hawkins. Dustin gets there safely but Eddie decides to stay in the upside down to buy the others more time. He jumps on a bike and rides through the upside-down as the demo-bats chase him. He then fights them off but is injured too badly. He dies in Dustin's arms as a hero.

Jason Carver

Jason Carver was a side villain and was a bit of a pest. It was because of him that Lucas wasn't able to save Max with the Kate Bush song "Running Up That Hill."

Lucas and Jason got into a fight and Jason was very close to killing Lucas. Lucas manages to floor Jason but was too late to save Max.

When the gates to the upside down open across Hawkins, Jason's body gets caught in the middle and his body disintegrates.

Does Max Die in Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2?


Max technically dies in the finale. She was dead for a minute before El was able to bring her back to life....but barely. She did not wake up and is still in a coma. She had her arms and legs broken as well as her eyes bloodshot. Will she awake from the coma? I guess we'll have to wait till Season 5 to find out.

Is Vecna still alive?


It seemed as though Vecna was killed in the final episode but Will confirmed that he could still feel Vecna and that he is still alive."Now that I'm here, in Hawkins, I can feel him. And he's hurt, he's hurting, but he's still alive. It's strange knowing now who it was this whole time, but I can still remember what he thinks, and how he thinks, and he's not going to stop... ever... not until he's taken everything and everyone. We have to kill him."

The final season of Stranger Things has a lot of questions to answer and the fight to save Hawkins is heating up.

You can now watch Stranger Things Season 4 on Netflix.
