Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1 is now available to binge on Netflix after three years of anticipation. The fourth season follows the Hawkins gang on their most recent trip to the Upside Down, which is home to the show’s most terrifying villain, Vecna. Fans, on the other hand, appear to believe that the program has a hidden villain, who is none other than Ms. Kelly, the school counselor.
As the episode progressed, it was revealed that Vecna was Henry Creel, the son of Victor Creel, who was wrongfully accused of murdering his own family. It was also unveiled that he framed his father. The climax of Volume 1 offers some clarity on Henry’s whole past, including how he was the first subject of the Russian-government project and how, after he broke Eleven out of the facility, he resolved to murder every single one of them.
Returning to Ms. Kelly, fans appear to have made a link between how everyone who sees the school counselor meets a horrible end at the hands of Vecna. Chrissy the cheerleader and Fred the journalist, two of Vecna’s earliest victims, both saw Ms. Kelly immediately before they were slain by the monster. When Max tries to discuss Chrissy and Fred, the counselor forbids it, citing student privacy as an excuse.
Fans of the fourth season of the show will recall that Vecna preys on those who have experienced trauma, and Ms. Kelly must have concluded that Fred and Chrissy are the perfect new prey for the terrifying monster, which explains their deaths.
Here’s the scariest part: a clock was loudly ticking in the background during Max’s conversation with Ms. Kelly. The school counselor was also carrying a clock key with a watch face, which may fit in the Creel House’s demonic grandfather clock, which sounds every time Vecna has a new victim to slaughter.
Although this notion appears to be far-fetched, it makes perfect reason that everyone who sees Ms. Kelly will die. Might this be the Duffer Brothers’ means of deceiving the audience, or could the audience have foreseen another twist?
Ms. Kelly’s relationship with Vecna will undoubtedly be revealed when Volume 2 is released on July 1. Meanwhile, Season 4 Volume 1 of Stranger Things is now available to view on Netflix.
