‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 Part 2: What Song Will Eddie Play?

[Warning: This article contains MAJOR spoilers for Stranger Things Season 4 Part 1.]

Stranger Things Season 4 Part 2 drops Friday, July 1 on Netflix. And its trailer simply could also be probably the greatest we’ve seen all yr. There’s far an excessive amount of to try to unpack from the two-minute video (Steve loss of life hints?! Joyce trapped within the Upside Down?! Eleven blowing up the key lab?!), however one half that stands out probably the most options Eddie Munson.

First, Joseph Quinn‘s D&D-loving, heavy metal-obsessed 20-year-old excessive schooler is seen grabbing an electrical guitar from the Upside Down model of his house. Later on, he performs that guitar on the roof of his Upside Down trailer. The transient second has already impressed fan artwork, nevertheless it has us questioning what the heck he’s taking part in!

Music has all the time been a key participant in Stranger Things (the soundtracks for every season are stuffed with deeply satisfying throwbacks), nevertheless it’s by no means been extra necessary than in Season 4. As followers nicely know by now, Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)” saves Max (Sadie Sink) from being killed by Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) in Part 1. Now that the gang has cracked the code on learn how to save Vecna’s would-be victims, it appears all however sure that Eddie will likely be taking part in one thing on the roof to save lots of somebody from sure doom.

It might not work out for us this time. The epic 2-part season finale of Stranger Things 4 premieres July 1st, only on Netflix.

That’s simply the premise of this concept. To determine what he’s taking part in, we’ve to reply these questions: Who wants saving? Why is Eddie saving them? What track would he play to save lots of both himself or another person?

One stable guess is Steve (Joe Keery). Not solely does the trailer suggest Steve may die in Part 2 (Maya Hawke‘s Robin tells him she thinks they could not survive the combat, and the trailer is somewhat Steve-heavy — perhaps as a result of it’s his final one? We desperately need to be flawed!), however Part 1 additionally established a budding friendship between Eddie and Steve.

While investigating with Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Robin, Eddie informed Steve he made unfair assumptions about him after they have been classmates. Eddie additionally confesses he’s by no means felt very courageous. Plus, he’s been the Hawkins’ scapegoat all season lengthy, being blamed for all of Vecna’s murders, telling us he might get the possibility to be the hero. And there’s this tweet:

Even Netflix admits Steve wants defending! So what track would Eddie play to save lots of Steve? Stranger Things needle drops are usually recognizable songs. “Running Up That Hill” is a comparatively deep lower for the present, and we’re solely calling it that as a result of Gen-Z viewers (a large a part of the present’s fanbase) probably heard it for the primary time watching Part 1.

Given that, plus every little thing we learn about Mr. Popular Steve Harrington and the Black Sabbath-loving Eddie, Steve would by no means be saved by Eddie’s style in music. The season is about in March 1986. A mainstream track of the time that you simply know Steve would love? Toto’s “Africa.” In reality, we all know Steve likes the track (launched in 1982) already, as a result of it performs throughout a Steve and Nancy scene in Season 1 — the scene the place he’s serving to her examine with flashcards. You know, the identical flashcards she finds in her Upside Down bed room in Season 4. With all the heavy hints of a rekindled romance between Steve and Nancy this season, it’s not far off to think about “Africa” having a particular place in Steve’s coronary heart, making it prime saving content material.

Another risk: Eddie’s saving Will (Noah Schnapp). Will survived for every week within the Upside Down in Season 1. To consolation himself, he sang his favourite track, The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go.” There are additionally hints that Vecna is what took Will all these years in the past, from the telepathy seen in these moments to the human-like determine approaching him on the street.

It looks as if the entire Hawkins gang will find yourself in Vecna’s territory within the finale, so it’s not far off to assume Will may find yourself in peril upon returning given his connection to the cursed place. “Should I Stay or Should I Go” additionally has an immediately recognizable guitar riff, and Will needing saving once more would give the character a extra fascinating plot than he’s had all season (and will result in a reveal about his portray that hasn’t been talked about because the first Part 1 episodes).

Now, transferring on to the following concept. Could Eddie be saving everybody? Perhaps he’s totally embracing his hero second by making a distraction atop his trailer to tug Vecna (or different Upside Down monsters) away from his new pals. If Eddie believed he was sacrificing himself, we expect he’d both play one in all his favourite songs or a track that’s already related to the season’s plot.

An Eddie rendition of “Running Up That Hill” can be killer to see on this second. And maybe it being remixed within the trailer is extra than simply The Duffer Brothers taking part in into the track’s resurged recognition. Plus, he’s actually “operating up that constructing” to get on high of the home, like Bush’s lyrics say.

And now, for the ultimate concept. If Eddie is taking part in his final lengthy, we are able to’t think about him taking part in something however Black Sabbath, or a minimum of songs from two of its members, Ozzy Osborne and Ronnie James Dio.

Black Sabbath was the band that represented the Satanic Panic of the Eighties, the time interval that impressed the character. Eddie mentions his love of the band and Ozzy in Part 1, and his denim jacket has a large Dio patch on the again; the Dio merch, as revealed by costume designer Amy Parris, was gifted to the present from Dio’s property. And Quinn listened to heavy metallic on a loop to organize for filming.

If that is the final track Eddie may ever play, our greatest guesses are both Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” or Osborne’s “Crazy Train,” due to Eddie’s love of the band, the songs’ launch dates (1970 and 1980, respectively) and lyrics, and the truth that they’re immediately recognizable.

If we needed to put cash on it, we’d say Eddie is taking part in “Iron Man,” because the track was launched when each Dio and Osborne have been within the band, and it’s a couple of man who travels to the long run and witnesses the apocalypse, however nobody believes him again in his time, so he kills all of them. To at the present time, Osborne’s reveals are thought of incomplete by followers till “Iron Man” is carried out.

Tell us that doesn’t match completely! Cast your votes for what you assume Eddie is taking part in within the ballot under. And in case you assume we missed one thing massive, inform us your theories within the feedback part.
