Stranger Things is, well, no stranger to theories regarding the future of the plot. Season 4 premiered over the summer, but fans are already talking about Stranger Things Season 5 theories. The series’ creators, Ross and Matt Duffer, told fans that the writers would pick back up in August 2022 to get the ball rolling, but fans already have more than a few theories of their own, and not all of them are great.

After Eddie’s death, fans mourned, and before long, the inevitable “Eddie didn’t die” theories flooded social media. The most popular of all the Stranger Things Season 5 theories involves Eddie returning as Kas the Bloody Handed. In the Dungeons and Dragons game, Kas serves as Vecna’s undead right-hand man before turning on him. He’s essentially the D&D version of a vampire. Because Eddie died by bats, and there was a quick mention of Kas at the beginning of season 4, some fans believe that he’ll return from the dead in Stranger …read more
