Duffer Brothers have revealed that Max was supposed to die in latest season of Stranger Things. Those who have already watched the show, know that the season ended with Max (Sadie Sink) in a coma with several broken limbs.
The show creators and brothers went on the Stranger Things 4 Vol. 2: Unlocked after show to discuss how her ending was supposed to be much darker as they initially discussed killing the character off permanently.
“It was discussed as a possibility,” said Ross Duffer. “For a while, that is what was going to happen. But we ended up in this… we wanted to end it with a little more of a question at the end of the season. It’s still really dark and if Max is going to be okay, we just don’t really know. We wanted to leave it up in the air moving forward into season 5.”
Matt Duffer added, “We wanted them to actually lose. We wanted our characters to experience what that felt like. That was the big idea coming into Season 4 that they were going to lose. We were going to introduce Vecna and they were going to lose to him. That sets our characters up for what will be the ultimate final confrontation with Vecna and with the Upside Down in season 5.”
The fate of Max is still unknown as we don't know when will she recover. We have to wait for season 5 to see what happens with Max.
