Who Dies in Stranger Things Season 4: Everything You Need To Know!

Stranger Things Season 4 is the darkest, meanest, and most brutal season yet. The season begins with a literal bloodbath, putting beloved characters like Max (Sadie Sink) and Steve (Joe Keery) in danger like never before.

As you watch Stranger Things Season 4 Part 1, you may become increasingly concerned about the fate of your favorite character. After all, this season’s new monster, the Vecna, is a terrifying creature that worms his way into traumatized teens’ nightmares before murdering them mid-air with his supernatural powers. It’s game over once the Vecna has locked his gaze on you.

This has been the case with Max Mayfield this season. Max has withdrawn from the company of Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Mike because she is still grieving the death of her brother Billy (Dacre Montgomery) (Finn Wolfhard).

She walks around Hawkins High wearing headphones and listening to her favorite song, Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.” Max is easy prey for Vecna, but does that mean she’ll perish? Here’s everything you need to know about Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1: who lives, who dies, and who tells their story.

Is Max Going to Die in Stranger Things Season 4?

No, Max Mayfield does not die in Season 4 of Stranger Things. At the very least, she did not die in Stranger Things Season 4 Part 1. However, Max comes the closest to death in Stranger Things 4.


That’s because the Vecna chooses her as one of his victims, haunting her with nightmares, headaches, and eventually psychic visions of her darkest memory, losing Billy. Around halfway through the season, Max’s friends rush to find a solution to save her.

At the very last moment, as Vecna has our beloved Max in his grasp, the group realises that the solution to fighting the Vecna is music. Listening to Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” prevents Max from dying at the hands of the Vecna.

Is Steve Killed Off in Stranger Things Season 4?

Steve, everyone’s favorite friend, ally, and babysitter, is the next major Stranger Things character to perish. Stranger Things Season 4 Episode 6 “The Dive” concludes with Steve volunteering to swim down to the lake’s bottom to see if there is a gate to the Upside Down where Patrick (Myles Truitt) dies.

Yes, there is! And it transports Steve to the Upside Down. Once in the Upside Down, Steve is viciously attacked by creepy bat things with D&D names in the Stranger Things universe. They literally take a bite out of our poor Pookie’s flesh, seemingly killing him.

So, does Steve pass away? No! At the very least, he makes it to the end of Stranger Things Season 4 Part 1. Nancy, Robin, and a reluctant Eddie (Joseph Quinn) track down and save Steve.

Having said that, he does have a strange wound that requires medical attention. (Robin is worried it’s rabies.) It is not the case. But what if the rabies is upside down? Steve is fine for the time being!

Is Nancy Going to Die in Stranger Things Season 4?

Let’s wait and see! Nancy’s (Natalia Dyer) escape from the Upside Down is foiled by Vecna at the end of Stranger Things Season 4 Part 1. He whisks her away to the Upside Down Creel House, where Nancy discovers the truth about his origins.

Nancy is in grave danger when the first volume of Stranger Things Season 4 concludes. Will her friends be able to get her a walkman with her favourite song on it — which I assume is Africa’s “Toto,” because it was her and Steve’s Season 1 makeout song — before it’s too late?!?!

In Stranger Things Season 4, Who Died?
