Stranger Things has been Netflix’s biggest hit ever – and no wonder, because not only is it a brilliant mix of horror, mystery, teen drama and 80s nostalgia, but it’s actually got better and better with every season.
The fourth season was split into two parts and the first seven episodes have been a wild ride, as Vecna waged a demonic campaign of terror on the population of Hawkins, Eleven was forced to relive her trauma in a secret lab, Joyce made a daring attempt to rescue Hopper from – of course! – a Soviet prison, and Mike, Will and Jonathan hightailed it out of California with the authorities hot on their heels…
It’s been non-stop thrilling action, and there are still two eagerly anticipated episodes to come! Netflix has given us a tantalising preview of what to expect, and one thing’s for sure – it’s not for the faint-hearted…
Every fan will have a different hero in season 4, whether that’s Steve with the good hair braving the Upside Down (er, shirtless), relentlessly smart young hacker Suzie, oddball Murray and his mad karate skills, or Max resisting the powers of Vecna with help from Kate Bush. There are also villains galore, from vengeful basketball captains to duplicitous Russian pilots. And that gave us an idea…
Stranger Things has always had a strong link with Dungeons & Dragons – its monsters are closely aligned with evil beings from the game, and the core four boys love playing it. And the classic role-play game has a simple schematic for judging the moral position of D&D characters, which has become an internet meme.
So could we fit our faves from Stranger Things season 4 into that schematic? We surely could. Click the icons in the chart below to find out how…
