Sadie Sink has revealed who she thinks Vecna would target next ahead of the Stranger Things Season 4 finale.

This Friday, July 2, Volume 2 of Stranger Things’ fourth season will finally arrive on Netflix. The first batch of episodes teased a major showdown in the pipeline, with Nancy possessed by Vecna and Steve, Robin, Eddie, and the others plotting a rescue mission.

We also watched Eleven try to recover her superhuman powers by reuniting with Dr. Brenner, who submerged her in a tank which allowed her to re-live her most traumatic memories. There, we learned more about the shocking origins of the show’s biggest bad yet.

Sink, who plays Max, had an already-iconic brush with Vecna in Volume 1. While her character’s future remains uncertain, she’s among the most qualified to ponder who the slimy, eye-pinching villain would go after next.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter ahead of Volume 2’s release, Sink was asked who she thinks Vecna’s next victim would be, given all that she knows about the characters. This did exclude Nancy, who Vecna has already targeted using her grief over the loss of Barb in Season 1.

She said: “Oh my god, this is such a good question. I mean, it really is interesting because all of these characters have gone through so much. They’ve had these joint experiences together and so all of them have trauma, but I think they all cope in different ways or move on in different ways or have better outlets than others.

“I would say, I mean, Eleven is kind of an easy target, and so is Will, but I feel like Will has already been possessed, and I feel like Eleven is impossible to possess.

“So, besides them, maybe Joyce? Joyce has been through a lot. I worry about her sometimes, but yeah, I would probably say Joyce or Hopper, maybe.”

Sadie Sink on what happens to Max in Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2

Sink said Max will have to make “some really brave choices” in the finale. “She has already, but I think she has to really step up and be braver than she’s ever been before,” she continued.

“So, that was a nice side of her to see; taking charge of her own life, her own fate and kind of taking a stand, which she’s always been good at, but this is to the extreme.

“So, it’s nice to see that fiercer side of her, which we caught kind of a glimpse of through the last bit of Episode 4 when she’s choosing to fight. So I guess just a little bit more of that.”
