"Stranger Things" takes us back to the 1980s immersing us in the world of music, pop culture, and fashion. However, what sets it apart is its ability to transport us beyond the ordinary. We encounter characters with psychic abilities, terrifying creatures from dimensions, secretive government experiments, and a realm called the Upside Down that poses a threat to our existence. Right from the beginning of this series, a group of friends from Hawkins finds themselves facing horrors that seemingly strike without any discernible pattern. As Season 4 reveals each death weakens the barrier between our reality and the perilous Upside Down.
Creators Promised Big Reveal
While every season of "Stranger Things" unravels pieces of the puzzle and provides some answers it also leaves us with questions that remain unanswered. When Will Byers disappears in Season 1 his loved ones are left bewildered about what they're up against –the Upside Down seems like an enigma. Although Season 4 delves into the origins of this realm it still leaves mysteries unresolved. Fortunately, according to promises made by the Duffer brothers themselves Season 5 will shed light on these lingering questions.
Fans have been given a peek into the Upside Down when Nancy Wheeler (played by Natalia Dyer) goes to fetch a hidden gun from her room only to discover that it seems like time has come to a standstill in the Upside Down.
Upside Down Eggsrom Season 1
There's a chance that Stranger Things season 4’s focus on the Upside Down will continue into season 5. By the end of season 4 Hawkins had been partially covered in the dust of the Upside Down. It's inevitable that the show's final season will delve deeper into this setting. However, it's worth noting that the unexplained yellow eggs seen by Joyce and Hopper in Stranger Things season 1 were never addressed. It seems unlikely that these eggs will be mentioned again after such a time.
Who’s Eleven Biological Father
The tragic story of Eleven's mother was explored in Stranger Things season 2 when our heroine sought out her catatonic parent. However, we still don't know who Eleven's biological father is. While it seemed possible that Stranger Things season 4 would reveal Brenner as Eleven's father, his death would significantly reduce the impact of this revelation. Consequently, there isn't reason for Stranger Things season 5 to touch upon the question of Eleven's parentage especially since Eleven herself hasn't shown interest in knowing about it.
School Counselor Vecna’s Connection
During Max's visit to the school counselor in Stranger Things season 4 she noticed that he was wearing a necklace with a grandfather clock, similar to the one found at Vecna’s house.
Also, all the people affected by Vecna were specifically selected from the student records maintained in the office of the school counselor.
