Jason Carver from Stranger Things explained and fate revealed

Jason Carver may not be the villain Vecna ​​in Stranger Things Season 4, but he’s definitely an antagonist, so here the character is explained and his fate revealed.

Alongside Vecna ​​(and maybe Dr. Brenner at times), Jason (played by Mason Dye) is probably one of Season 4’s most hated characters, as he starts out as a self-righteous school jock (and bully), but is there more to him?

Viewers first meet Jason in Episode 1 as Hawkins High’s new “golden boy.” He’s the captain of the basketball team, meets with the head cheerleader and is gifted with drop-dead good looks.

He first appears to give a rallying speech in front of the school to inspire them to perform better in the big game, but when Chrissie dies, it turns out, at Vecna’s hands, viewers see a whole different side of this golden-haired golden boy.

Jason was already a bit of a bully to anyone who wasn’t cool – meaning all members of the Hellfire Club – but his evil side kicks into high gear when his girlfriend dies and he starts the manhunt for Eddie Munson, whom he believes to be responsible.

Jason even manages to send the whole town into a “satanic panic” by claiming that the Hellfire Club is a Satan-worshipping cult led by Eddie.

As for Jason’s fate, he eventually meets his end after following Lucas and Max into the Creel house – still determined to believe there is a demonic cult they all belong to – and battles with Lucas and him seriously injured before disintegrating when the Upside Down pushes into the real world.

Satanic panic was real

Jason may have launched the “Satanic Panic” in Hawkins, but in the US in the 1980s it was real thing – that’s how the creators of Stranger Things came up with the idea.

In 1979, Dungeons & Dragons gained wider public attention when an avid player of the game, James Dallas Egbert III, went missing and was found dead by suicide.

People believed that Egbert was too invested in playing D&D and the game made him explore steam tunnels. His fall caused parents and adults to view D&D as satanic work.

There was also the case of the West Memphis Three, where three teenagers were convicted of heinous murders they didn’t commit simply because they listened to heavy metal and read books that many considered “wrong.”
