*WARNING: Stranger Things season 4 spoilers ahead*

Eddie Munson has risen to become Stranger Things’ fan-favourite character after he joined the clan to defeat Vecna, and thus prove his innocence over the death of Chrissy.

Episode 7 ended with a cliffhanger. Fans discovered that Henry, aka One was the deadly beast. Vecna was due to face the teens in a final showdown but Eleven, who is still far from the crew, made it seem unlikely that they would win.

Thankfully, Eddie’s commitment was the glimmer of hope we needed, and his final guitar scene has the internet raving – including Metallica.

With Eddie Munson’s guitar solo scene going viral, Metallica – the artists behind Master Of Puppets – couldn’t sit back without commenting on it.

“We were beyond psyched for them to not only include ‘Master of Puppets’ in the show, but to have such a pivotal scene built around it,”They shared their 8.4 Million Instagram followers.

“We were all stoked to see the final result and when we did we were totally blown away.

“It’s so extremely well done, so much so, that some folks were able to guess the song just by seeing a few seconds of Joseph Quinn’s hands in the trailer! How crazy cool is that?”

If you’re wondering if it’s really Quinn shredding his guitar like it was his last chance (it actually was). According to the actor, RadioTimes He was the one who did it.

“They [the Duffer Brothers] texted me and they said, like, can you play the guitar?”He explained.

“I said yes. That was about two months into the pandemic, maybe three months, and then a month later, they sent me the last script.”

Quinn went on to purchase a guitar. “practised manically for months” until shooting.

“I was trying to be realistic with kind of what I could do. Like I’ve been playing [guitar] since I was a kid but I’m no virtuoso. So I had most of the song down, but for the solo, we had to fly someone, a black belt metal guitarist, in to help with that. The rest of it? I had a stab at it, yeah.”

Joseph Quinn, that was a great stab. It made us both cry and bang our heads.

What happens in the final to Eddie Munson?

As part of their plan for destroying Vecna, the crew divided into three groups. Max joined Erica and Luca to bait Henry into attacking her.

Dustin also pumped Eddie up to make sure he could rock out in order to distract the demobats. Robin, Steve and Nancy were also at the Upside Down, ready to kill Vecna.

Unfortunately, the D&D dungeon master was swarmed by demobats, thus becoming the sacrifice to save Hawkins. Stranger Things fans still mourn the death of their favorite character.
