Vecna, the villain of Stranger Things season 4, was by far the most gruesome villain of the Netflix original. You weren’t mistaken in presuming that there would be a lot of deaths. And the ending of the season held true to that expectation. One such character was Eddie Munson, played by Joseph Quinn. The character who became a fan favorite within a season of being introduced met his end at the hands of Vecna. And fans couldn’t be any more dejected about the loss of their favorite character. Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Vecna, acknowledges the fans’ feelings, apologizing to them.
Jamie Campbell apologizes to his victim in Stranger Things season 4
Jamie Campbell Bower, the actor playing the role of Vecna, was the main villain for season 4. The villain from Upside Down killed some characters in the series, Eddie being one of them.
But the actor is now seeking to make amends. Jamie wants forgiveness from Eddie Munson and his fans for killing him. And in a recent video interaction, he asked for the same. He said, “I’m here to apologize. I know a lot of people are mad at me.” The apology video for the fans soon became an apology for the primary victim of Vecna’s crime, Joseph Quinn. Quinn entered the video with Bower saying, “But my apology isn’t just for you. It’s for the main victim of all this.”
Joseph Quinn and Jamie Campbell Bower make amends
Joseph Quinn is not an actor who was satisfied easily. He wanted to make Jamie Campbell Bower go the extra mile to meet his expectations. And it was apparently after Jamie Bower presented him with a gift, that the two actors smoothed things over.

A small gift in exchange for peace. Life does come cheap.
Stranger Things: What are the repercussions of Vecna’s actions?
The villain responsible for all this suffering, Vecna, is actually the very first child Dr. Brenner experimented on at the Hawkins lab. He is known as Henry Creel AKA One. He was behind the massacre at Hawkins Lab. But he failed to take down Eleven, who banished him to the Upside Down. The character had been waiting for his final chance to exact revenge. But the plan didn’t go quite as planned. Yet, the show has been set up for an exciting season 5.
And Matt Duffer said that Season 5 is “going to start pedal to the metal.” This means that there will be no slow starts, no build-up. Only action. He added, “We’re not going to do the ramp-up. There’s no time. There’s no normalcy, obviously, once you’ve reached the end of four. It’s just going to be going 100 miles an hour from the beginning.”
As expected, fans can’t wait for Stranger Things season 5.
Stranger Things season 4 is currently streaming on Netflix.
