Max (Sadie Sink) escaped Vecna’s clutches thanks to the power of Kate Bush’s song “Running Up That Hill” in Volume 1 of Stranger Things 4. But unfortunately, she became Vecna’s last victim in the final episode. She died for a brief moment before Eleven brought her back to life. Max is currently in a coma.
Since then fans have been speculating what role Max will play in the final season. The latest theory predicts that Max will wake up from a coma with powers in season 5. This way she can take down Vecna once and for all. When Eleven tried to wake her up in the hospital, Max's mind was blank. Max may get the ability to form a personal connection to Vecna and use that bond to defeat him.
Max's mind was inhabited by two incredibly strong psychics which means that when she wakes up from the coma, she will not be the same Max she was before. The spark Eleven gave her to revive her heart may have given powers to Max. A Reddit user Beastboi27 wrote,
“Vecna consuming Max will ultimately be his downfall. Whatever 11 did with Max...I think it gave Max some leverage to roam around inside Vecna's memories, and she may encounter the other victims and free them. They [could] form a group and devise a plan to destroy Vecna from within, and then she will be able to wake up from her coma.”
We are rooting for Max to get powers like Eleven in season 5. What do you think about this theory? Let us in the comments section.
