Eddie Munson is thrust into the bizarre mystery of Hawkins in ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4

When Mike and Dustin learn Lucas will not be joining the D&D game orchestrated by the Hellfire Club leader, they panic over having to tell Eddie. The character is somewhat of a bad boy but with charm and charisma. He is also a die-hard D&D fan and player. He is the one who introduces the infamous future villain, Vecna, while playing D&D.

Eddie’s story becomes complicated when he witnesses Chrissy’s horrific death in his trailer. Scared of what occurred and knowing his criminal record, Eddie flees and goes into hiding. But Dustin, Steve, Robin, and Mike realize Hawkins has a new bad guy and need Eddie to learn more details.

Stranger Things Season 4 Volume I thrust Eddie into Hawkins’s drama and its supernatural mystery. Eddie has cemented himself as a worthwhile character, and fans worry might die. But beyond this, fans have gone gaga over his looks and overall charm.

Another fan comically Tweeted, “men should apologise for not being eddie munson actually.”

Joseph Quinn has previously expressed he hopes his character stays until the fifth season. But fans are slightly worried he is the lamb put out to slaughter for the greater good of the other characters. As fans know, Eddie and the characters are in the Upside Down, looking further into Vecna.

But previous trailer teasers have shown what is now confirmed to be Eddie having an epic guitar solo in Stranger Things Season 4 Volume II. Matt Ramos on Twitter commented, “This is Eddie playing a song in one of the final episodes of #StrangerThings4, and I just know this is going to be one of the hardest scenes in history.”

Another fan responded by saying, “I literally cannot wait for the sight of Eddie Munson absolutely shredding guitar in the upside-down.” Fans speculate the character will use music to distract the creatures of the Upside Down from the other characters.
