Max’s return in Stranger Things 5 could be sooner than you think

In the Stranger Things 4 finale, Max went into a coma after fighting Vecna. But the show won’t want Sadie Sink to be out of sight for too long.

Max Mayfield (Sadie Sink), who was in a coma at the end of Stranger Things season 4, probably won’t stay there for long in the final season. But things look bad for her now because she died briefly when she fought Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower). Max is still alive, but she hasn’t been able to wake up, and Vecna may have something to do with that. Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) may have been able to bring her back to life.

Max was the clear winner of season 4 with her powerful storyline about losing her brother Billy and falling for Vecna. Sink’s performance was praised by everyone, especially the scene in “Chapter Four: Dear Billy” called “Running Up That Hill,” in which Max was able to escape Vecna’s grip when he heard the popular Kate Bush song. Sink’s star is on the rise outside of Stranger Things. Her popularity is rising in The Whale, where she stars with Brendan Fraser. Because of this, it’s unlikely that the people who make Stranger Things will want to leave Sink out of the last season.

Due to the time jump in Stranger Things 5, Max’s return will not be a cheap gag.

The Duffer brothers, who make the show, said there will be a time jump in season 5 of Stranger Things. This is mostly because many of the show’s young characters changed a lot between seasons 3 and 4, which is only supposed to be a few months in the story. The COVID-19 pandemic slowed the making of Stranger Things season 4, but this could be good for Max’s story. People may feel cheated if a major character’s life is in danger at the end of a show’s season finale, but they are saved in the first few minutes of the next season. But if there was a big jump in time, Max could wake up in several ways that would make sense for the story. Stranger Things shows how bad Max’s coma was without watering it down by showing how the other characters react when she wakes up.

How Max Can Wake Up In Stranger Things Season 5

Max could wake up from her coma anytime, but that seems unlikely because she didn’t fall into it alone. All signs point to Max being alive inside Vecna, which keeps her from returning to the real world. Vecna, on the other hand, uses his victims in strange ways, as he did with Nancy. He took advantage of the bad things that had happened to Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and took over her body. Then he sent her back with a message about his plans. Vecna has already started taking over Hawkins, so he will likely do the same to Max.

Even though Vecna may be trying to kill Max or at least use her for his bad purposes, Eleven saved her. Eleven’s ability to come back to life is new, and the scene where she did it happened near the end of the season 4 finale, so the full extent of her powers hasn’t been shown yet. We only know that Eleven used her memories to save Max, so it’s possible that she spent the whole time jumping, trying to bring her best friend back, and finally succeeded. Max could open her eyes at the end of the first episode of season 5 of Stranger Things.
