'Duffers are always very careful': 'Stranger Things' Season 4's Sadie Sink on Max's fate in Season 5
The Volume 2 of the series is out and we know Max did not really have a good ending
'Stranger Things' Season 4 was everything we'd hoped for with some interesting revelations and a mind-bending, aggressive storyline. The evil power that holds the quaint town of Hawkins is not gone yet. But if it does, it is sure to take many more lives with it.
Directed by the Duffer brothers, the Volume Two of the series is out and we know Max did not really have a good ending. She was very close to being another one of Vecna's victims before El dived in to save her. So what do you think will happen to Max (Saddie Sink) in Season five of the show?
While there's no second thought that Sink has done a remarkable job playing Max, the smart, witty, and cheerful girl, in Season 4, she believes that Season 5 has been the best for her so far. In a recent interview, Sink told Deadline that she's liking all the attention she has been getting for months stating, "It’s been fun". Saddie revealed that she had the script of all the episodes during the lockdown and was astounded to see where the story was headed.
She also spoke about the transition of her character throughout the seasons stating, "When she first entered the scene in season two, [the gang] was something that she so desperately wanted to be a part of, because she felt a little lost in this new town and this new school. She just wanted to find people of her own. She found that she had a lot of trouble getting in and had to prove her place. Season two was kind of like this fight to get in there. We kind of saw her relax in season three, and saw an even more confident side of her. It was a little bit more lighthearted in season three for her until the very end with Billy’s death, which is why she spiraled into the place that we find her in season four. And then obviously in season four, there’s a lot of character development. All the pieces really came together in episode nine, for me, just with that monologue that she has. I was glad got that script in advance. It says so much about Max’s mindset throughout season four. Having that and knowing that bit of information while we were filming the previous episodes was very helpful."
We know how Max regrets not being able to save her brother Billy in season three. His death takes a toll on her and this becomes the driving force for Vecna to take control of her to kill her.
When Saddie was asked about her character in the next season and the final scene in episode nine she replied saying, "I can tell you with full honesty that I do not know what is going to happen in season five. I think after watching nine, I’m even more eager to find out. With season five being the last season, I don’t know what they have planned. But there are so many characters. Some of the deaths on the show are so impactful to audience members and the other characters in general. But they really moved the story. I know the Duffers are always very careful and calculated with who they’re killing off. They’re never gonna kill a character for the sake of just killing someone off. It always has to move the plot along and be right in that moment and in the story. I have full faith in them."
