The popular sci-fi series’ favorite child gang, which comprises Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Will (Noah Schnapp),
. Max was featured in season 4 as having mental health issues following the passing of her brother Billy (Dacre Montgomery) in season 3, which rendered her susceptible to Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower).
Max was left in a startling state at the end of season 4, blinded, with the majority of her limbs damaged, and in a coma, despite having survived her encounters with the antagonist
Sink discusses whether she concurs with a criticism of the show made by Maya Hawke and Brown, two of the show’s stars, during an appearance on the Variety Awards Circuit podcast.
They claim that the show is too precious with its characters and is afraid to kill anyone in the constantly expanding core ensemble cast.
Many viewers felt that Max’s comatose condition was another cop-out by the show’s writers, Matt and Ross Duffer and that the season would have been better if the youngster had truly perished
Even while Sink acknowledged that Max’s passing would have a profound effect, she argues that the Duffer brothers had special motives for keeping her alive.
While Sink’s remarks and several series creator hints suggest that the final season may depart from that pattern, those criticisms of Stranger Things are justified.
