Throughout this season there were many ups and downs. There were also many plot twists in this season, as well as confusion regarding the story timeline and character connections. In spite of the sacrifices that were made in order for the heroes to beat Vecna, and tragic loss of several key players, audience responses were overall positive. The characters all had to put their differences aside, and they came together as one to try and put an end to Vecna.
