As of recently, a script has been revealed pertaining to the first episode of Stranger Things season 5. At the time of this writing, there is no indication as to when Stranger Things season 5 will be released, but needless to say, there is a lot of hype surrounding this next season.

This script features the title “Chapter One: The Crawl”; as to what this could be hinting at, we are not sure. However, there are some Stranger Things fans that have started to speculate what this title could be implying, and said speculation is based off a Metallica lyric.

At this point in human existence, the entire world is aware of the Metallica song “Master of Puppets”; having appeared towards the end of Stranger Things season 4, the song saw a major boost in popularity (which has been celebrated by the guys in the band). Spoilers for Stranger Things season 4 ahead.

Prior to his death, Eddie Munson performs the Metallica song during one of the show’s most epic moments. The death of Munson saddened many Stranger Things fans (given that he became a super popular character) – but maybe Eddie might be coming back? We bring this up because of two particular points that Stranger Things fans have mentioned on social media:

1). Some users have pointed to a tattoo that Eddie had (which features some kind of monster dangling a being by puppet strings). It isn’t that far of a stretch to say this is a wink and nod in regards to “Master of Puppets.”

2). Some lyrics that make up “Master of Puppets.” Specifically: “Come crawling faster/ Obey your master.”

Based on these two points, some Stranger Things fans have started to speculate that Eddie Munson might be returning (or “crawling” back) from the Upside Down. Do you think that this is possible and something the Duffer Brothers might try to pull off? Would you be excited to see Eddie return from the Upside Down? Below we have included some comments from Stranger Things fans involving plot speculation regarding Stranger Things season 5.
