What to expect from 'Stranger Things' Season 4 finale? Eddie says 'carnage'
- 'Stranger Things' Season 4 will see final two episodes arrive on July 1
- The penultimate episode runs for 85 minutes and the finale has a two and half hour runtime
- Season 5 marks the final instalment of the show
'Stranger Things' Season 4 has seen things get more dangerous in Hawkins and the Upside Down already, with the last episode of part one explaining why the alternate dimension filled with monsters has a bone to pick with the psychically-gifted Eleven, portrayed by Millie Bobby Brown.
The last two episodes are slated to arrive on July 1 and mark an end to the current instalment of the science-fiction series that reminded viewers of the works of Steven Spielberg and Stephen King. While the penultimate episode runs for 85 minutes, the season finale has the length of a feature-length movie with a runtime of almost two and a half hours.
Joseph Quinn, who's had a breakout performance this season, playing Eddie - the Dungeons and Dragons pro, president of the Hellfire Club, and casual spitter of Ozzy Osbourne trivia, told The Guardian that the finale is absolute 'carnage'.
"The thing is, they’ve got my family tied up somewhere and if I spoil anything, I’ll never see them again", the 29-year-old said, when asked about possible spoilers for the finale, but added, "No, I can say there’s a guitar scene and that the scale and ambition are astonishing. All the seeds that have been planted bear fruit and it’s just carnage. You know the finale is two and a half hours, right? Ending with this monster, feature-length episode is so bold."
Matt and Ross Duffer, the co-creators of the Netflix series, revealed that the upcoming finale has more VFX shots than all of Season 3, which ran for eight episodes.
"There’s an hour-long chunk in the final episode that just doesn’t stop", Ross said to Empire magazine, adding, "It’s the most complicated thing we’ve ever attempted to do. [It’s] all tension and dread, with a run-time that would be long even for a movie. Then – well, everything goes to hell…"
Quinn also told the British news organization "I’ll be furious if they don’t bring me back [laughs]. I’d love to, if they’ll have me", when asked about his possible return in 'Stranger Things' Season 5, which will mark the end of the series.
