Dr. Brenner's goodbye
Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) gets shot by a sniper when he tries to evacuate Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) from the bunker after the army arrives to kill her. In his final moment, he says goodbye to El after releasing her from the shock collar that he puts on her while trying to stop her from leaving for Hawkins to fight against Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower).
In one of the most heartbreaking moments of the season, Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) dies after heroically distracting the flock of demo bats all by himself while trying to buy time for Steve (Joe Keery), Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Robin (Maya Hawke) to enter the Creel House as per their plan. After drawing their attention to himself by delivering a killer performance to a Metallica track, Munson tries to keep Dustin safe as he draws the bats away from himself and gets taken down by one of them.
Jason Carver (Mason Dye) meets his end in Season 4 Volume 2. While trying to seek revenge from the Hellfire club, Jason enters the Creel house and where he threatens to kill Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) while in the presence of Max who is held captive by Vecna. Carver eventually dies as the Creel house begins to get ripped apart after Eleven and Vecna's showdown.
Max Mayfield's survival
Sadie Sink's Max Mayfield almost dies after Vecna gets hold of her and also captures Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) as well as their other friends Steve, Nancy and Robin. Although Eleven who has "piggybacked" into Max's memory to fight off Vecna, miraculously does save Max from dying though towards the end of the finale it is revealed that Mayfield lies in the hospital and is in a coma. Season 5 will showcase whether Max survives.
Did Vecna die?
While it seemed like Vecna had died after he is attacked by both Eleven through Max's mind and by Nancy, Steve and Robin from within the Upside Down though it is later revealed in the climax as Will (Noah Schnapp) discusses with Mike (Finn Wolfhard) how he can still feel his presence in Hawkins.
At the end of Volume 2, all the characters reunite in Hawkins including Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Hopper (David Harbour) though the town looks very different now in the aftermath of what is being reported as an "earthquake." At the end, particles from Upside Down are seen falling from the sky like snow, suggesting that the dimension is beginning to bleed into Hawkins.
