The fourth and last to last season of "Stranger Things" ended in a bloated form, but in the end it was satisfying. It's full of destruction.
Note: The previous spoiler.
The two super-large episodes that ended Season 4 (currently streamed onNetflix) should be split into shorter segments. There is no reason why an episode in a television series will be longer than a feature film (2 hours 30 minutes). These could have been easily truncated.
However, the event that happened ended the season well, leaving enough story in "Stranger Things" for Season 5.
As fans know, thecharacter has separatedinto a distant corner of the globe. Now, on the final stretch, Hopper (David Harbor) and Joyce (Winona Ryder) eventually leave an isolated story in Russia and return to the Hawkins children (at the same time, their "do they do or not". I'm going to solidify the relationship).
Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) reunites with other members of the California gang — Will (Noah Schnapp), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Jonathan (Charlie Heaton). Then with the Hawkins crew, including Steve (Joe Keery), Robin (Maya Hawke), Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Max (Sadie Sink), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin). meet. Kate Bush's song "Mysterious Hill"will be replayed to have an emotional impact.
But with all the reunions, there are few suns and rainbows.
A new heartfelt nerd this season, Eddie (Joseph Quinn), was killed along the way, and Max is in a coma and may not wake up. (The show also killed Matthew Modine's "daddy" and played it as an emotional moment, but it's hard for a man experimenting with a child to feel sad.)
So this turn's event is a relief for long-time viewers who hate losing their beloved characters like Steve. It's also good to feel that "Stranger Things" is quite unique in a genre show in that it's in danger, horror, and dire situations without offending the protagonist. The "Game of Thrones" show seems to be competing for the most shocking death, and it feels novel that "Stranger Things" can fire on all cylinders without playing the game. increase.
But on the other hand, those who die each season are predictable and repetitive as relatively new side characters such as Eddie and Billy. (Dacre Montgomery) and poor Bob (Sean Astin) from past seasons. If this show refuses to pick off the main cast, it's hard to feel that this show has a high stake.
Nevertheless, there was a lot of fun in these two super-major episodes.
"Stranger Things" are emotional moments that they haven't seen in a while (and while they're suffering from a dire situation), like hugs between friends. Always excellent at building up. Was away).
In these episodes, Hopper and Joyce share a kiss, Dustin and Mike share a fun hug, or Hopper and Eleven eventually reunite as father and daughter and buzz cut each other. It is especially well shown, whether mocking or not. "Stranger Things" finds the moment when Steve supports and smiles while Robin is flirting with the girl. The show never loses sight of the little gestures between these characters in the chaos, and the human element makes the action even more thrilling.
And certainly there is a lot of confusion. Most of the gangs have survived, but Hawkins is in a state of turmoil, almost destroyed by the supernatural events that the news calls "earthquakes." Smoke eruptions can be seen while long lines of cars flee the town and the sky is ashing.
It's all very apocalyptic, much like the "Lord of the Rings" Mordor. Most people may still be standing in the fifth final season, but things are more dire than ever.
