There is no denying that besides Vecna, Jason Carver (Mason Dye) is the most hated character in Stranger Things Season 4. He established himself as the school jock and bully to anyone who is “different.” When Chrissy Cunningham is murdered, he quickly accuses Eddie and soon has the entire town against the Hellfire Club. But is Jason one of the victims who will meet his death in Stranger Things 4 Volume 2?

The jock of Hawkins High has it out for the “freaks” of the town
In the first half of the fourth season, Jason is the epitome of the town’s “golden boy.” He is the basketball team captain, dating the sweet head cheerleader with golden hair and good looks, and is almost unbeatable. He goes on the hunt with his teammates to find Eddie and hold him personally responsible for Chrissy’s death.
In the finale, Jason’s eyes open to the darkness and supposed demonic habitation of Hawkins. At a town meeting, he convinces them that the rumors of the Satanic Panic craze are accurate. He explains there are people doing devil worship. The local murders are a result of it. According to official trailers, released stills, and fan theories, Jason might meet his death in Stranger Things 4 Volume 2.
Fans are unsure who Lucas sees getting Vecna’d in ‘Stranger Things’ 4 Volume 2
Fans are putting together a series of events that could take place in the fourth season’s final two episodes. Lucas is in a heated fist fight with Jason at Creel House in the official trailer. But fans are wondering how or why Jason is there? According to possible theories, Jason finds part of the gang and follows them to Creel House. A newly released photo shows Jason running into Nancy at a gun store.
A fan on Twitter theorizes, “he’s talking shit about eddie, nancy is defending him and having h0micidal urges towards jason. he’ll probably follow her / the rest of the gang so that’s how he gets in the haunted house and lucas will kick his ass so much it’ll fold it back inside his body.”
But fans are curious to know what happens to Jason at Creel House. One scene shows Lucas screaming in horror while looking up. Could it be that Jason becomes Vecna’s newest victim by chance? Lucas could be screaming as Max is under the spell of Vecna?
The Duffer brothers have teased no character is safe in the final two episodes. It could mean Jason is one of the dead in Stranger Things 4 Volume 2.
Jason and other Hawkins residents could face death as the Upside Down infiltrates in ‘Stranger Things’ 4
The final two episodes are guaranteed to blow fans’ minds in a way never seen before. One possible theory that has been circulating for some time is the Upside Down pushing through the multiple gates into Hawkins. With Vecna more powerful than ever, it is certainly a possibility. Fans saw as, in prior seasons, the Demogorgon and other creatures attacked Hawkins and the main characters.
In Stranger Things 3, fans saw an epic battle at the local mall with the Mind Flayer, which Billy Hargrove sacrifices himself to destroy. If the theory of the Upside Down taking over Hawkins is true, it could lead to Jason’s death and many more injured. A Reddit thread points out Vecna’s words in the trailer, stating, “Hawkins will fall.”
Fans believe Hawkins is in the fight of their lives and a reality check to the horror they had no idea about.
