It’s been just over two weeks since the fourth season of Stranger Things exploded on Netflix, giving fans one of the best and scariest entries yet.
Volume 1 of Stranger Things 4 ends on a nerve-wracking downhill as it is revealed that Vecna’s origins are closely linked to Eleven and her time in Hawkins’ laboratory while she is left trapped in the Upside Down and under the influence of a bleak villain.
Now, newly released images for volume 2 of Stranger Things Season 4 have given fans a first glimpse into the last two episodes while also confirming Nancy’s fate after she was left in grave danger in Episode 7.
Stranger Things 4 Vol 2 First Images Revealed
To celebrate the halfway point between volumes 1 and 2, Netflix has released a batch of new images from the last two episodes of Stranger Things Season 4.
The new photos don’t reveal much that we didn’t already know because we see Eleven lingering with Dr. Brenner trying to regain her power while Hopper, Joyce, and Murray are still stuck in Russia with Dmitriy.
However, the highlights of the new images show that the Hawkins gang was able to reunite after Steve and Nancy were left trapped in Episode 7.
Pictures confirm that Nancy remains in an upside down position
After the final episode of the first volume ended with Nancy locked up in the Upside Down movie with Vecna, viewers feared for her safety and that she might be the first. pioneer Character death among the main cast in Stranger Things Season 4.
However, new images released by Netflix show her back in our world and her reunion with the gang, revealing that she either managed to escape from the Upside Down by herself, was rescued by her friends or was mysteriously allowed by Vecna to leave.
However, Nancy’s fate is actually first revealed in a trailer released shortly before the arrival of Season 4 which shows her, Robin and Steve armed to the teeth and preparing for a fight.
This was something we didn’t see in Volume 1, which indicates she was always destined to escape the Upside Down. Whether she is still under the influence of Vecna in Volume 2, however, remains to be seen.
But while the photo below shows Nancy’s return to our world, there is just something about Max, who is tucked away in a dark corner of the room with his eyes almost glazed over, suggesting that everything isn’t as it should be.
