After the three-long-years of anticipation, the long-awaited fourth season of the critically-acclaimed show Stranger Things is finally available to binge on Netflix. Aside from the latest thrilling adventures and the menacing villain Vecna, the latest season surprisingly highlighted Max's (Sadie Sink) character arc, and how she unluckily became Vecna’s latest prey.

When Max thought that she would die at the hands of the Vecna, she prepared letters for her friends and her mother. Fortunately, Max survived, but what these letters contain remains a mystery.

During an interview with Variety, Stranger Things star Sadie Sink was questioned about Max's unopened letters to her friends, and whether she knows what's inside of them.

"I don’t! In my own downtime and daydreaming, I have an idea of what she probably will want to say to each specific person. I don’t know anything about what the plans are for Season 5, but I’m dying to know what’s in there," Sink admitted. "I want to have a scene where the letters are read. I think it’s so typical Max, for her to literally be looking death right in the eye but still, she is unable to tell someone face-to-face, how much they mean to her or have a sincere conversation with someone. The fact that she has to put it into letters and not even be around when they were read, it was like, yeah, like that adds up. But I would love to see what’s inside of those letters."

It's certainly interesting to unfold what's inside those letters. However, what's intriguing about it is that these unopened letters might be foreshadowing Max's demise in the upcoming second volume, and the entire Hawkins gang would read it in the final sequences of the season to grieve their beloved friend. After all, Volume 1 ended with Max still under Vecna's curse, and her fate is still in danger. Nevertheless, we'll see if Max survives when Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 arrives on July 1.

Meanwhile, Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
