'Stranger Things' Season 4 Volume 2: Is Eddie 010? Wicked fan theory claims he's one of Hawkins lab kids
A Reddit user claimed that Eddie is 010 and one of Hawkins lab kids, and fans had a lot to say about it
Volume one of ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 broke all the viewership records and went on to become the most-watched English language series on Netflix. The latest edition of the sci-fi series had a lot of horror elements this time around and was much darker than the previous seasons. It also introduced us to some new and pivotal character and one of them is Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn). He is one of the students at Hawkins High School and is a huge fan of ‘Dungeons & Dragons’.
In Season 4, he gets wrongly framed in the killing of Chrissy Cunningham (Grace Van Dien) and spends most of the season in hiding. However, he gets to know by the threat by Eleven’s friend and becomes a part of the group. However, a new theory suggests that Eddie actually knows Eleven from a very long time.
A Reddit user claimed that Eddie is 010 (Ten), one of the Hawkins lab kids. Sounds crazy, right? Take a look at this theory and decide if that can be possible.
Is Eddie Munson one of Dr. Brenner’s kids?
The theory takes us back to Episode 1 of Season 4 where we see a flashback of Eleven wreaking havoc in the facility and killing almost everyone. On the other hand, Brenner takes 010 out of the rainbow room for training and that’s the time when Eleven kills everyone. Brenner goes out of the room and sees Eleven who has already sent 001 to Upside Down. However, the theory suggests that every child died in the massacre, and even though 010’s body was shown in the scene, there would have been no time for 001 to kill 010 when he was in the middle of fighting Eleven.
010’s face is never shown and even when Brenner hugs him in the room, we don’t get to know if he’s really dead or not because all the other children were confirmed dead by showing their faces.
Also, while meeting Chrissy in the forest, Eddie says that he had a buzz cut and if you are an ardent fan of ‘Stranger Things’, then you know what a buzz cut means in the ‘ST’ universe. On the other hand, the theory also makes an interesting point that Eddie doesn’t get surprised when he is told about Eleven’s powers and the Upside Down. It might not be a big thing, but he might have some memories of the time he spent at Hawkins Lab and maybe knows about Eleven and the powers she possesses.
Although there were many who also gave their input and said that the theory might come true. But, a lot of people believed that this is just a theory and Eddie has nothing to do with the Hawkins lab. Eddie and 010 have completely different eye colors. Eddie has brown eyes, and 010 appears to have blue eyes.
Meanwhile, the timeline doesn’t match up as well. Eddie seems to be 19 or 20 in 1986 and has taken senior year a couple of times before. The Hawkins lab massacre occurred in 1979, which would make Eddie around 12/13 years old when 001/Henry Creel went rogue. Although 010 looked older than Eleven, so the age theory might turn out to be true.
Nevertheless, this mind-boggling theory has already got people thinking if Eddie is 010 and he has a bigger role to play in the entire situation. What do you think of the theory? Do you think Eddie can be 010? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section.
