[Ed. note: This post goes into detail about what happens to Eddie Munson in Stranger Things 4.]
Oh, Eddie Manson, we knew very little about you.The audience was introduced to Eddie at Stranger Things Four As an upside-down Duff Warrior, and as a sort of D & Douche leading the Hellfire Club, he quickly caught the hearts of fans and made his premature death in the hands of Demobat even more shocking.
Even the actor Joseph Quinn, who plays Eddie, is destined not to really appreciate, at least as long as the Hawkins inhabitants are excited about satanic panic abuse, especially since he lost his hero but still has a legacy of villains.But Quinn it is Stranger Things Will continue to be unique.
“I don’t think it’s very fair. But I think it fits some of the rest of the season’s themes. It’s more mature, brutal, and scarier. With this feeling, Life is not always easy, “says Quinn. “You feel it’s more mature. And we all want Eddie to be blessed and have the death of the hero he deserves, but it’s a kind of more classy story. I think it’s storytelling. “
Eddie was a newcomer Stranger Things In the world, he fits into the greater focus of all forms of outsider shows. Eddie, a metal-loving, pot-handling, and D & D-playing nerd, had a few chips on his shoulders that made it easy for the town to catch him as a villain. But, as the character’s main performers know, his death was brave. He completely shreds Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” on an upside-down trailer and rushes into battle to keep the bats away from Steve and Robin. The battle between Nancy and Vecna.
Eddie seems to have been able to just play the guitar and make noise, rather than cleverly soloing the “Master of Puppet” guitar riffs, but Quinn goes that way with his character. I’m glad that.
“I received some text — a couple of very elusive texts from Duffers asking if I played the guitar. Yes, I didn’t get a reply,” says Quinn. Then he had to get the script for the last two episodes and start practicing “a lot”. But in the end, when it was time to shoot, he felt ready in one or more ways.
“We were still quite deeply involved in the pandemic suffering, and it still felt a bit scary, but the crew and I felt like it was the first time, so the set had a really nice atmosphere. Remember that [were] In an environment where live music is performed […] And we were playing the “Master of Puppets” upside down! It doesn’t happen every day. “
“I don’t think there are many worlds where Metallica concerts don’t feel ridiculous as a crescendo of the season. [Here] It feels completely earned and ridiculous, but it feels right and inspirational. And I was very fortunate to be able to participate in it. ”
Stranger Things 4 I’m currently streaming on Netflix.
