Spoilers for 'Stranger Things' Season 4 Episode 1
Trailer for ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 gave us a glimpse about how things are going to get more and dangerous for the people of Hawkins. Even after defeating the Mind Flayer in the previous edition, things are not looking good for anyone. The clip also introduced us to the new villain Lord Vecna and as soon as people saw the most powerful wizard and lich to ever exist, they knew that he going to bring hell with him and he does exactly that.
In Episode 1 of the fourth season, we see Chrissy Cunningham (Grace Van Dien), known as the Queen of Hawkins High School, feeling a bit anxious after a successful cheerleading stint earlier at school. Max (Sadie Sink) was going to the counselor’s room when she first realized that there was something wrong with Chrissy. A few moments later, we see Max going to the washroom and realizing that someone is not well in one of the washroom compartments. She asks her if she needs some help, the girl in the compartment tells her to go away.
As soon as Max leaves, we see that the girl in that compartment is none other than Chrissy. She is not feeling well and something is definitely not right with her. However, things turn really ugly when she suddenly starts hearing her mother’s voice from outside of the compartment. Chrissy is clueless and it’s undoubtedly someone else messing with her. Soon, she starts hearing her mother talking about a dress that she made for her. Just then, we hear footsteps of something bizarre in the washroom. The lights start acting funny as something diabolical reaches just right outside Chrissy’s compartment. She continues to hear voices for another 10 seconds before they fade away and the diabolical figure also disappears.
As the episode progresses, we see Chrissy walking into the woods to meet someone. But as soon as she reaches there, she sees a big clock fitted on one of the trees. As she approaches the tree, the clock starts to crack and a group of bizarre spider-like insects crawl out of it. She tries to get away and meets Eddie (Joseph Quinn), who has come here to meet her. Everything goes back to normal and as they talk to each other, we realize that Chrissy is there to buy some weed or marijuana. However, she needs something stronger. So, Eddie calls her to his home to give her “The Special K”.
Eddie is unable to find it and searches his whole house for it. However, Chrissy starts hearing voices again and the diabolical figure makes another appearance. He changes the reality and takes Chrissy back to her home where she sees her parents. But they both have been turned into monsters. Elsewhere, Eddie manages to find the stuff and goes back to Chrissy. However, Chrissy is already in trance and can’t seem to see or hear Eddie.
She tries running away, but the monster manages to catch her. We get out first clear look at our villain and he is diabolical in every sense. He says that it’s time for her (Chrissy) suffering to end and he starts to kill her slowly. The death scene is so painful to watch because her whole body starts to move uncontrollably and blood starts coming out of her eyes. That’s how Vecna announces his arrival to Hawkins.
One of the prominent characters of the show has died in the first episode and this is just the beginning because Vecna still hasn’t shown his true power. If Chrissy’s death was so unbearable, imagine what he’ll do to others when he uses his powers to the max.
'Stranger Things' Season 4 Volume 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
