NETFLIX fans are convinced that when Stranger Things returns, it will be Murray Bauman who gets the chop in season four.
Ever since season three came to an end, viewers have been speculating about what the next series' plot could entail, and it could be a grisly end for the private investigator.
Murray (played by Brett Gelman) was first introduced in season two of Stranger Things and is said to be a series regular in the upcoming fourth instalment.
Murray struck up an unlikely friendship with Russian scientist Alexei (played by Alec Utgoff) as he looked into the dodgy Russian activity taking place in Hawkins.
More recently, Brett has been spotted filming scenes alongside co-star Winona Ryder, who plays Joyce Byers, in Lithuania and it's believed the location will act as a backdrop for the pair's mission to rescue sheriff Jim Hopper (played by David Harbour) from his new Russian prison.
And some Netflix fans think this may be how Murray ends up dead and took Reddit to debate the theory.
Redditor Tesgoul posted: "I think the next one to die is Murray. His death will be sad, but not too much because he is kinda of a side character. He is the perfect target."
The fan continued: "Remember in season two when he had already suspected a Russian invasion in Hawkins way before everyone else found out about it?
"Maybe that doesn't count, but he was there in the mall when the Russians took away Hopper, and now with the voicemail for Joyce there's a chance he figured out or is going to figure out what the Russians have done with Hopper as well.
"The guy knows way too much about the enemy," they concluded.
However, other fans of the show pondered whether it could be Steve Harrington (Joe Keery) or the parents of Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) who could be killed off.
One person wrote: "Out of everyone in general I think I’m worried about them killing off Steve the most, as he is loved by pretty much everyone and so often shows get sucked into the idea of killing off characters for the sake of doing it and for purely emotional effect."
The speculation comes after one of the show's stunt bosses teased season four will be "darker, more epic and full of surprises".
Hiro Koda told ComicBook.com: "All I can tell you is that season 4 is… It's darker. There's lots of great surprises and all your favourite people are in it.
"It's going to be so good. It's so epic. I've gotten to read through almost eight scripts now, so it's pretty awesome. I don't know how many we're going to get," he added.
