Since the 2016 release of Stranger Things, fans have flocked to the fictional Indiana town, and despite the risks, they have been hesitant to leave.
Season 4’s first portion is perhaps the darkest chapter in the show’s history, and it continues the Duffer brothers’ tradition of serving up a delicious blend of dizzying storytelling and nostalgia.
There is no one to trust, least of all the newbies who are only learning about the terrifying dangers of the Upside Down.
Fred Benson is one of the newer characters to appear in Stranger Things, so it’s time we learned what happened to him.
Fred Benson’s Fate in Stranger Things Season 4
Fred Benson, played by Logan Riley Bruner, is a newbie and a pal of Nancy’s who is also trying to make it as a journalist.
To say that the audience doesn’t get to know him well, though, would be an understatement. Several characters die in the premiere of Season 4, Part 1, and we get the impression that Fred will be next if he doesn’t get away from Vecna, the season’s main antagonist.
In one scene, a police officer pulls over Nancy and Fred, and Vecna tricks Fred into thinking the officer is a demon.
However, the true significance is revealed despite the oblique approach. It turns out that Fred was responsible for a hit and run in the past and abandoned the victim on the side of the road. The victimized student remains anonymous.
It’s clear that Vecna preys not only on abuse survivors but also on people with extreme feelings of guilt. After all, Fred got in his car and left, never reporting the incident and avoiding any fallout until Vecna came along.
Vecna continues to provoke Fred by showing him disturbing images of the deceased’s relatives in mourning. Eventually, Vecna makes the decision to end Fred’s life, and we see him being yanked off his feet as his body goes through its final agonizing twists and turns.
Fred Fans Are Taking It Badly
Many viewers and new Fred fans have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment with the character’s arc in Stranger Things.

‘I Love That Ship Now’
The death of Fred hasn’t stopped Logan Riley Bruner from talking about the making of Stranger Things.
