The first episode of stranger things Season 4, titled “The Hellfire Club” introduced us to several new characters, including Chrissy Cunningham. In the show, Chrissy is portrayed as a sweet, caring and compassionate person. In fact, we like this new character after seeing her interaction with Eddie Munson.

Chrissy, the cheerleader on the Hawkins High basketball team, undoubtedly had a bright future. Several fans thought that she would eventually become a part of the gang; However, the Duffer Brothers had something else in mind for the character. In the first episode we see that Chrissy has strange visions where she hears a voice calling her name. Of course, we know it’s Vecna who’s stalking Chrissy, but the show doesn’t confirm it until the end of the episode.

Stranger Things season 4 introduces Chrissy only to kill her in the premiere episode
Chrissy doesn’t want to tell anyone about her nightmares, despite Max trying to confront her at school. Maybe that’s because she doesn’t want to become just another “freak” for the Hawkins folks. Anyway, Chrissy looks for drugs to overcome her fear and then she interacts with Eddie.
At first, Eddie offers Chrissy his standard stuff, but she asks for something more robust. Later that day, Eddie takes Chrissy home while Max watches them from afar. Eddie searches for what Chrissy asked for, but unfortunately Chrissy then becomes possessed by Vecna. It’s almost like Chrissy’s body is in Eddie’s trailer, but her mind is somewhere else. She finds herself in a darker version of her home in Hawkins, where she sees a twisted version of her parents. So it’s obvious that Chrissy was in Upside Down at this point where Vecna catches up with her.

Chrissy tries to run away from Vecna but the devil won’t let her get away. Eddie, on the other hand, tries to wake up Chrissy, thinking she’s having some kind of stroke.
Vecna then tells Chrissy that her suffering will end soon, and then he possesses Chrissy’s body and kills her in the most brutal manner. Unfortunately, Eddie had to watch as Chrissy’s mind and body were crushed as Joyce smashed the doll she received from Russia.
