Which Character Will Die First In Stranger Things?

Stranger Things quickly became a cultural phenomenon when it was released on Netflix last July. The nostalgic 1980s vibe of the show mixed with the surprisingly relatable characters created a must-watch for fans of television.

Many have been waiting with bated breath for the second season of the Netflix original, which is set to hit the streaming service on October 27, 2017. And, of course, with so much speculation about what the show will bring us this season, sportsbooks have an interesting betting pool.

Online sportsbook Bovada released odds on which Stranger Things character will perish next.

Youngster Will Byers is a +130 favorite to be the first character to die this upcoming season. It does stand to reason, as the child’s connection with the upside down is still strong after the ending of season 1, which has the Sword of Damocles dangling precariously above his head.

I personally have my own reservations about this bet, simply because killing off a younger character may not be something the writers want to do – and if Will is to perish, that could give the writers some difficulty figuring out where to go next. Plus, if Will is going to die, one would assume it is left until later in the season, giving time for other characters to kick the bucket first.

There is more value looking in the way of the teenagers like Steve Harrington (+600) or a lesser character introduced in season 1 that can help move the events along this time around like Max (+1200).

Of course, the first season made a big splash with the character of Barb Holland who was, relatively early in the show’s run, taken and killed by the monster from the upside down. And though Barb was initially not expected to be as large a character as she became thanks to the fandom, it’s clear the show writers have few issues killing off characters if the right circumstances arise.
