Don’t celebrate the return of Jim Hopper in Stranger Things 4. Because he might not have returned to stay for long.
Yes, the good news is that Jim Hopper has returned, and the bitter news is that Jim Hopper is again going to die in Stranger Things 4.
It was the finale of Stranger Things 3 when fans of the show faced the death of Jim Hopper, played by David Harbour. He sacrificed himself for the greater good of Hawkins. However, as per the demands of fans and their wish to see him alive, Duffer Brother and Netflix released a teaser to Stranger Things 4 revealing that Hopper is alive and doing hard work in Russia.

This made fans extremely happy and started celebrating the return of their favourite character. But the celebration for his fans might not continue for long. Yes, our predictions say that Jim Hopper is going to die in Stranger Things 4.
Is Jim Hopper again going to die in Stranger Things 4?
We know this doesn’t sound good. No one enjoys watching their favourite character die twice, especially if it’s a character like Jim Hopper, who’s played by charming David Harbour, and is written to hold the audience with him whenever he appears on the screen.
Jim hopper wasn’t the most lovable character from start. But gradually, as we saw the dimensions beneath that smoldering face, we started admiring him. However, it will be a tragic experience for the fans to see Jim Hopper die in Stranger Things 4, once again.
Jim Hopper to be Mind Flayer’s host in Stranger Things 4.
Theories are suggesting that Jim Hopper might be the new host of Mind Flayer in the new season. It makes sense. After failing with Will and then Billy as his host, Mind Flayer must be looking for someone stronger, emotionally and physically. Jim Hopper can be the best bet for Mind Flayer, as he is also the closest to Eleven.
Also, Jim Hopper being Mind Flayer’s host is a very good conflict for the story, thus, makers might go for it. In that case, if Hopper fights against Eleven and with Mind Flayer, then he’ll be a target for both the sides. This might no go well, and Jim Hopper might die in Stranger Things 4.
Sacrifice is undone with the return of Jim Hopper.
We all know that the characters like Hopper are not there in a show without purpose. Jim Hopper too was gradually constructed in the show to be one of the most important characters. He always remained in the story in one way or another and drove a major chunk of the story. With him adopting Eleven, the main protagonist of the show, and then fighting against all to keep her save, he was serving every purpose.
What left was the one great purpose, the one great sacrifice, to complete his story arc and justify every bit of his existence. When he sacrificed himself in Stranger Things 3, we felt bad, but it seemed like the purpose served and justified as we assumed that Mind Flayer also died.
But now as Hopper and Mind Flayer both are back again in Stranger Things 4, the purpose remained unattained for Jim Hopper.
Thus, to complete the purpose, we think Jim Hopper will again die in Stranger Things 4.
