The Release Of Stranger Things Season 4 Vol. 2 Broke Netflix This Morning

Spoilers ahead for volume 1 of “Stranger Things,” season 4.

It might take a while for viewers to get through the final episodes of volume 2 — approximately four hours — and a lot goes down in the finale, bringing disparate narrative threads to a (semi) conclusion. Given the darker and more serious tone of the current seasons, the stakes are higher than ever, especially as Vecna wishes to carry out his plans to open multiple gates and unleash hell on Hawkins. As the gang is separated, with some back in Hawkins, and the others in Lenora Hills, they need to find a way to work in tandem so as to defeat Vecna’s evil for good.

Volume 1 ended with Nancy (Natalia Dyer) being under Vecna’s spell, who reveals his true identity to her, and in turn, the viewer, while Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) learns the truth about the past and the role she played in opening a portal to the Upside Down. Back in Russia, Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce (Winona Ryder) are finally united, but they are trapped inside a prison block and need to find a way to escape.

Volume 2 goes about addressing these narrative threads right away, delivering some epic moments that truly pay off seminal plot points. Keeping in mind that the final season of the show is yet to premiere sometime down the line, the big fight is yet to be fought, and the worst is not over for our Hawkins/Lenora Hill residents.

Volume 2 of “Stranger Things,” episode 4 is currently streaming on Netflix.
