As the stakes get higher in Stranger Things, no character is safe. Even our favorites could die anytime and that keeps us awake at night as we count the days to Season 4 Volume 2 release on July 1. If it were up to us, every character will get to fight epic battles and end the season safe and sound in Hawkins. But who knows what the show’s creators, the Duffer brothers, have in mind? The cast hinting at “deaths coming” and “carnage” for Volume 2 doesn’t help with the anxiety either. But even though it’s an uncomfortable conversation since we’re emotionally attached to these characters at this point, we have to talk about who’s most likely to die this season.
#8 Dr. Martin Brenner
Dr. Brenner better not expect a Happy Father’s Day card from any of his “test subjects.” He is a brilliant man who knows how to make kids like Eleven harness their powers but the end shouldn’t justify the means. What can you expect from the government’s senior research scientists, right? Anyway, he’s a character most likely to die in Season 4 when Eleven finally gets back the full extent of her powers and he isn’t needed anymore. Our guess is that Vecna will get to this guy but who knows? After all, “Ang masamang damo, mahirap mamatay.”
#7 Jason Carver

As a *~society~*, we might not agree on many things, but I think I speak for everyone when I say Jason Carver could choke. He is the stereotypical preppy athlete bully every fictional American high school has. Jason’s even worse since he didn’t stop at shoving people in hallways, he set out to find Eddie Munson and stop at nothing short of murder to “avenge” his girlfriend Chrissy Cunningham. Jason doesn’t understand the threat Hawkins is in so he creates theories (the Hellfire Club is a cult?!) to explain supernatural things he witnessed. Ergo, if Jason gets written off, no tears for him.

#5 Murray Bauman
#4 Eddie Munson
#3 Robin Buckley

We’ve been smitten by Robin Buckley since she appeared wearing that sailor hat in Season 3. This season, she cemented her position in our hearts. She’s loud, she babbles when she’s nervous, she’s brave, she’s a true friend — what more could you ask for. But we admit that she’s one of the characters most likely to die. In Season 3, Robin consoled a beat-up Steve that they will get out of the Russian lab alive. In contrast, the trailer for the Season 4 finale showed her losing hope that they’ll survive this one. WE’RE ALREADY CRYING.
#2 Steve Harrington
Look here Duffer brothers and Netflix executives, kill Steve “The Babysitter” Harrington off and you lose whatever subscribers you’ve got left on the platform. The Internet is deathly serious.

what if stranger things se 5 ends with hawkins being nuked by russia and they all fucking die
— woaha (@woahaaaa) June 15, 2022
What if, in a bizarre twist of events, Hawkins does get nuked by the Russians like the tweet above theorizes? Then everyone will die together and we don’t have to worry about mourning a single character. They go through hardships and trials together, they experience happiness together, and, ultimately, they flee from this world in style — together. That would be an ideal ending. Just don’t. Touch. Steve. Harrington.
Stranger Things Seasons 1 – 4 Volume 1 is available on Netflix now. Season 4 Volume 2 will premiere on July 1, 2022.
