Billy Hargrove met his demise in Stranger Issues season 3, however that does not imply his time on the collection must be fully over. The character, performed by Dacre Montgomery, made his collection debut in season 2 and has been an antagonist of various levels ever since. This is how Billy might return in season Four with out ruining his redemption.
Billy and his stepsister, Max, have been launched originally of season 2 when their household moved to Hawkins from California. As the brand new stereotypical “cool man,” Billy immediately entered a rivalry with Steve. He additionally revealed himself as a bully, particularly in his therapy of Max. She ultimately obtained the higher hand, however issues grew to become severe in season Three when Billy was attacked by the Thoughts Flayer and chosen as the brand new host. He then constructed a military for the Thoughts Flayer and set his sights on Eleven. Together with her assist, Billy was in a position to regain his management from the Thoughts Flayer and made the heroic sacrifice to avoid wasting Eleven, his sister, and their mates earlier than succumbing to his accidents.
In all probability, Billy will keep lifeless with no hope of a future in Stranger Issues, however the identical destiny was meant for Jim Hopper who was not too long ago revealed to be alive within the season Four teaser trailer. Many followers are actually questioning if Billy could possibly be the following “lifeless” character to have miraculously lived via the season Three finale.
The Thoughts Flayer had full management over Billy, however viewers aren’t totally conscious of the Upside Down and its powers. It is also unclear what occurred to Billy’s physique after the occasions in Starcourt Mall. Perhaps he may be revived or the Thoughts Flayer has the flexibility to clone hosts that it has imprinted on within the Upside Down. The present may elect to select extra logical avenues that also give Billy a task in season 4.
There isn’t any information concerning Montgomery returning in any capability for the forthcoming installment of the hit Netflix collection, however that does not imply the actor cannot seem in a restricted capability. Since Max will presumably take care of shedding her stepbrother and witnessing his demise, flashbacks present a chance for the collection to dive again into their household’s difficult relationship. This technique was utilized in season Three with Bob Newby though the character was killed off the earlier season.
If the collection focuses on flashbacks or some sort of an alternate actuality, it will not diminish Billy’s redemptive motion in dealing with the Thoughts Flayer earlier than being stabbed to demise. Within the small probability that the actual Billy comes again to the present timeline, he’ll undoubtedly proceed that redemption arc and at last be part of the group as a member of the great guys, one thing that many viewers had hoped to see. The choices are actually infinite, and with a present like Stranger Issues, something is feasible.
