5 things we learnt from the new season 4 teaser of Stranger Things
The new Stranger Things season 4 trailer has now arrived and picks off exactly where things left off in the season 4 countdown live stream. A frightening voice says, “You shattered everything, your misery is nearly at an end,” as the season 3 finale ends with the lab in ruins.
It was then when a really spooky-looking visage appeared. Here’s a breakdown of what you’re about to see:
There is a conflict taking place between the children and the Upside Down.
There’s a hint in the trailer’s opening voiceover that the Upside Down forces we’ve only encountered in monosyllabic-emitting animals are ready to stop messing around and start winning. That narration might be from Robert Englund (more on him below).
We discover that Dr. Sam Owens, played by Paul Reiser, is the second narrator, and he sets the tone for the season with a roller-skating scene with Eleven and Mike. For their own safety, they relocated to a new place after the fourth season. According to Owens, Hawkins is the centre of the storm. That Eleven’s role in “winning this battle” cannot be overstated.
Eleven is in danger, and Max may be in possession of new abilities.
The only thing Eleven has left is her voice, and Owens knows this because she tells him. However, something tells us that this won’t be a long-term issue for the battle against the Upside Down. A picture of Eleven shouting as explosions rock behind her might be a clue as to what Eleven’s emotional condition can still do.
That’s all? In the wake of Billy’s death, Max seems to have picked up some new skills. Max is shown hovering above Billy’s grave as Lucas, Steve, and Dustin watch in disbelief as the trailer focuses on her paying homage to the late Billy Bob Thornton.
Freddy’s here, and Freddy’s blind
Then Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger himself) makes a brief cameo as a guy with no eyes in the film. A crucial scene in the film takes place on Victor Creel’s estate, and his character is Victor Creel in the film.
Englund may also be portraying the show’s big evil monster, as we’ll see below. One of them, at any rate.
Hopper’s in trouble
Hopper has been imprisoned in a cold Russian jail for a long time now. A peek of his struggle is seen here, as we see him attempting to find out how to assist.
Unfortunately, he’s in a jail where he’s surrounded by demogorgons, and we’re reminded of it by Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” song. If he’s lucky, he’ll come up with a fresh strategy to stop them!
Stranger Things may hinge on the Creels.
We believe that the crimson, venous creature that seems to be the season’s main villain is Victor Creel.
Almost, but not quite, Netflix’s official copy of the next season is what makes it official: “Six months had passed since the Battle of Starcourt, which left Hawkins in ruins and filled it with fear. For the first time in our lives, our circle of friends has been divided from one another. New and terrifying supernatural threats emerge at this vulnerable moment, revealing a grisly enigma that might ultimately put a stop to the Upside Down’s atrocities.”
We believe the Creel home killings are the source of this enigma. It has been previously reported that Creel is “a troubled and scary guy who is imprisoned for the death of one of his family members in the 1950s,” which makes us wonder whether Creel killed one of his own family members while under the grip of The Upside Down.
The conclusion of Stranger Things is near.
Season 4 of Stranger Things is the series’ last season; season 5 has already been revealed. That season has yet to be announced, but this Stranger Things season 4 teaser offers us plenty of cause to suspect that it will be more intertwined than ever before with the upcoming fifth and sixth seasons.
Everyone from the Night King from Game of Thrones to one of the mutated Resident Evil antagonists has compared this mega-boss to what we’ve all been waiting for: the forces of good. So far as we can tell, it’s a first and maybe final exam for both youngsters and their trusted adults from The Upside Down.
Even though the two faces are identical, the first shot’s blue eyes stand out, and they aren’t visible in the second (again, they might be concealed), but our sense is that they are two different creatures. In other words, both are subordinate to one another For a two-parter perspective of Seasons 4 and 5, if one of these creatures is to be put down in each season, this would all fit together. The only way to “win the battle” is to stop these two baddies.
Only time will tell whether this is a good idea or not. This season’s Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of Stranger Things will launch on May 27, respectively.
