Stranger Things has taken the internet by storm over the last couple of weeks with the release of the long anticipated season four vol. 1. Now, Netflix have given us an insight into season 4 vol. 2 with a new teaser, and it looks just as good — if not better — than the first half.
At the end of the first volume, which consisted of seven episodes each around an hour long, the mystery of Vecna was unravelled. It turns out that Vecna is one of the enhanced ability children previously under the guidance of Papa. In fact, he is the first, aptly named “One”, or 001.
Eleven and the other children were initially made to believe that One never existed, or at least this is what is seemed like from the conversations between her and Henry Creel, who worked at the lab during Eleven’s training; in fact, Henry Creel turned out to be One.
The mystery of what happened to One is slowly unravelled through the latter episodes of the season, and it turns out that Eleven banished Henry (or One) to the Upside Down after he murdered all of the other test subjects. This fact was unknown to anyone at the time and even Eleven herself had forgotten about what she had done.
Whilst in the upside down, Henry was slowly changed into what eventually would become Vecna, and began terrorising the children of Hawkins with the intention of growing stronger and returning to Hawkins to exact his revenge on Papa and Eleven.
Stranger Things Season 4 Vol. 2 Teaser
In the recently released teaser, Vecna tells Eleven that she has freed him from the Upside Down and as a result, he cannot be stopped. The teaser shows multiple scenes of what look like Vecna hurting the residents of Hawkins, although this is unclear due to the speed at which the teaser plays out.
It looks like vol. 2 is going to be a smash hit for Netflix and we’re excited to see how it plays out. You can check out the teaser below.
