ten Jamie Campbell Bower is credited in every episode

Jamie Campbell Bower plays 001/Vecna. Interestingly enough, if viewers watched the entire credits, Bower is credited in every episode as “friendly and tidy.” However, he doesn’t appear on screen until “Chapter Six: The Dive.”, so fans wonder why he was credited in every episode.

It’s a dead giveaway that Bower has appeared in every episode of the season. Obviously Bower was playing Vecna ​​and the “friendly nurse” who was later revealed as 001. Given the cliffhanger ending of Season 4, fans can expect Vecna ​​to return. in season 5 with a vengeance.

9 Henry Creel is the sole survivor of the Creel Massacre

Looking at the situation, Henry was the sole survivor of Vecna’s attack. It’s because Henry Creel is also Vecna.

Throughout the season, there are flashbacks to Eleven’s training in the Hawkins lab. There was a massacre that killed everyone in the lab. Dr. Brenner finds Eleven covered in blood and many dead bodies in her wake. While Eleven seems guilty, it was actually 001 who was responsible for the massacre.

Another visualization of the scene would show that many corpses appear to resemble Vecna’s victims in the present. The twisted bodies, lack of eyes, and open mouth make it clear that 001 was responsible for the attack.

seven Vecna’s lair is also Creel’s house

The people of Hawkins know not to enter Creel’s dilapidated house. The house is believed to be haunted as it was the site of brutal murders that rocked the city in the 1950s. Although this is simply dismissed by most as a story to scare children away, the house is more haunted than the people of Hawkins think.

Henry Creel never really left the house because it’s also his upside-down lair. When the group enters the house, they see the grandfather clock that all of Vecna’s victims imagined, showing that Vecna ​​used his own memories to psychologically terrorize his victims before killing them.

6 Vecna ​​had a connection to Max through Billy

During Vecna’s time, as a “friendly medic”, he was seen giving Eleven advice on how to deal with her powers. He also gave Eleven advice on how to deal with 002, who bullied him. This proves effective for Eleven, but 002 has been mercilessly punished by Dr. Brenner.

001 tells Eleven to think of a memory that made her angry to defeat her enemies. When 001 and Eleven have their confrontation, it looks like she will be a victim. However, she reverses her lesson and thinks of a love memory to escape her grasp. Eleven also uses this method to defeat Vecna ​​after it appears he killed Max in the Upside Down.

He continually points out that they are all being watched by cameras and that Eleven needs to be very careful of her behavior. He even tells Eleven that Dr. Brenner isn’t who she thinks he is, stating bluntly: “Daddy is lying.”

Although 001 was right in his assessment of Dr. Brenner, his manipulation of Eleven was just beginning. Looking back, it’s easy to see that a random medic working in the lab wouldn’t reap those kinds of feelings towards Dr. Brenner unless he was no longer involved in the lab’s nefarious schemes.
