Eddie Munson’s guitar solo takes up a portion of his screen time

If you’ve seen the final episode of Stranger Things 4, you will of course remember Eddie Munson’s epic guitar scene, one which could rival Max’s Kate Bush scene.

The guitar solo scene lasts 3 minutes and 40 seconds. Considering that Eddie Munson only appears on screen for 42 minutes, this solo makes up 8.7 per cent of his screen time.

We all could’ve done with plenty more guitar solos from Eddie Munson throughout the season, truly.

Stranger Things fans petition to have Eddie brought back

The Duffer Brothers’ decision to have Eddie sacrifice himself in the final episode of Stranger Things 4 is clearly one of their biggest mistake with fans to date.

In response, some in the Stranger Things fandom are petitioning to have the creators bring their favourite back, as reported by Express.

A petition has been set up, asking Netflix and the Duffer Brothers to bring him back for the final season.

As of publication date, over 69,000 fans have signed and counting.

Fan theories about a new potential role for Eddie circulate

This month sees a theory floated around online which could see the return of Eddie Munson for Stranger Things 5. With its roots in Dungeons & Dragons, it seems like the theory has legs…

Games Radar reported that the theory would see Eddie Munson return as an undead vampire in the Upside Down for the final series.

“Eddie is not dead. The Duffer Brothers have said that you cannot die from the bite of a bat. Yes, you can eventually bleed out, but the bite alone, will not kill you,” one person writes on Facebook (via Reddit). “I have this theory that Eddie will become Kas, the vampire…. the right hand man to Vecna, Kas eventually turns on Vecna and defeats him.”

Could this be the solution for Eddie Munson fans? Only time, or The Duffer Brothers, will tell.
