6 ominous details from the new 'Stranger Things' season 4 trailer that have us worried about our favorite characters

  • Warning: Spoilers ahead for "Stranger Things" season four, part one.

  • Netflix just dropped a new trailer for the final two episodes of "Stranger Things" season four.

  • Several major characters including Lucas, Steve, Eddie, and Robin all seem at risk of mortal peril.

Among the new teases for "Stranger Things" season four, part two, there's a shot of Nancy looking extraordinarily upset by something.

It looks like Max, Dustin, Lucas, Erica, Robin, Eddie, and Steve are all heading somewhere in a Winnebago RV. They all seem extremely dejected — as if someone they know and love has recently died or been injured.

What would make Nancy look like that? The death of her brother, Mike? Maybe word from a government official that something happened to Eleven? Or perhaps another one of the kids is going to be haunted by Vecna.

When part one left off, Nancy was in Vecna's mind-lair. Clearly she escapes from him, since we see her out and about with her friends in this trailer. But that look on her face has us worried about a major character death coming (something Noah Schnapp has heavily hinted at).

The trailer also shows Robin ensnared in the Upside Down, while Steve and Nancy try desperately to free her.

We also see several scenes of Robin, Nancy, and Steve inside what looks like the Creel House inside the Upside Down. It looks like Robin will get tied up by the supernatural vines, and Steve and Nancy will try to cut her free. Will they make it in time? Or will Robin perish in the fight against Vecna?

Eddie is shredding on his guitar in the Upside Down in this scene. Is he providing a distraction? Trying to save someone from Vecna?

Regardless of his motivation, it's clear that Eddie is putting himself at risk by standing alone atop a building and blasting guitar music through an amp in the Upside Down. At the very least this would attract a lot of the demo-bats.

Will Eddie be the character who dies this season? Cocreators the Duffer brothers do seem to have a tradition of introducing new characters only to kill them off by the end of the season — like Bob in season two and Alexei in season three.

Max seems to once again be in Vecna's clutches in this shot:

Max was already on the brink of death once and escaped. Can she do it again? How would Vecna get ahold of her this time?

Lucas seems to be screaming at something — is it Vecna? Or another teen getting killed?

Either Lucas is about to die in this scene, or someone else must be dying in front of him. Elsewhere in the trailer, we saw Lucas in this same blue-lit room fighting with Jason (the basketball captain bully who is trying to hunt the Hellfire Club).

Maybe Lucas is screaming because Jason is getting killed by Vecna in front of him. But it's also possible that Vecna will come for Lucas himself.

Last but not least — what could be happening to make Dustin scream like this? Is Steve going to die?

Dustin would surely be in emotional agony if any of his friends were being attacked before his eyes, but something about this scream seems particularly wounding to him. His tears and scream makes us worry for Steve — everyone's favorite babysitter and one of Dustin's very best friends and mentors.

Is Steve going to die? Or is Dustin yelling after Eddie, his newer friend and fellow fighter in the Upside Down?

We'll have to wait until July 1 to find out for sure. In the meantime, read more about the 16 burning questions we have heading into the "Stranger Things" season 4 finale.
