In the show, the gang investigate the murders of two fellow high school students who suffered headaches and hallucinations related to feeling guilty about something in their past, before being horrifically murdered by Vecna. As such, the gang are suitably alarmed when they discover Max, who is struggling with grief following her stepbrother Billy’s death, is having the same hallucinations.
