This Stranger Things 4 Quote Foreshadowed That Major Death In The Finale

Contains spoilers for "Stranger Things" Season 4, Episode 9

"Stranger Things" has never been one to shy away from character deaths, whether fan favorites or those that have a more adversarial relationship with the group of friends from Hawkins.

So far, we've suffered through the loss of beloved characters like Bob Newby (Sean Astin) and Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) as well as short-lived characters who quickly captured the audience's hearts, like Alexei (Alec Utgoff), a Russian scientist with a penchant for slushies, and Benny Hammond (Chris Sullivan), the kindly restaurant owner who provides shelter to Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) in the first two episodes. And let's not forget Barb Holland (Shannon Purser), for whom fans demanded justice after the character died very early on in Season 1 (via Vanity Fair).

Plenty of antagonists have also died, like the Russian Terminator, Grigori (Andrey Ivchenko), and Max Mayfield's (Sadie Sink) abusive stepbrother, Billy Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery). As far as Season 4 goes, it seems as if the death of one antagonist was foreshadowed very early on.

Jason tells Lucas that being hungover is like being split in two

After Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower), Jason Carver (Mason Dye) could be considered the next major "Stranger Things" Season 4 antagonist. As the captain of the Hawkins High School basketball team, Jason is popular enough to command most of his teammates on and off the court, leading them on a witch hunt for Eddie, whom he believes is responsible for his girlfriend's death at the end of Episode 1.

Before this, however, he and the team celebrate winning the championship game by drinking at Benny's now-abandoned restaurant. The next morning, Jason describes being hungover as like being split in two.

In fact, this is exactly what happens to him after Vecna shatters the boundary between this world and the Upside Down, the fissure that quickly erupts essentially cleaving Jason in twain. In the end, he now knows full well what being split in two really feels like.
