Joseph Quinn Was Detained By US Immigration For 20 Minutes Before They Realised He's Eddie From Stranger Things

Warning this article contains some spoilers for Stranger Things 4, but honestly, if you've not watched it yet, what are you doing?

Look, Eddie Munson has had his fair share of run-ins with the authorities in Stranger Things, but that doesn't mean he should be getting stopped IRL.

Even so, the guitar riffing legend got stuck at immigration.

Recounting the incident to Jimmy Fallon, Joseph got candid about his recent travel mishaps: "It's so nice to be here because I very nearly didn't make it. I was held up at immigration yesterday. It's not so fun. I was taken into, I guess what you could call it - it was more of a dungeon and I was asked to wait there for about 20 minutes."

That's right, Joseph got trapped in a legit dungeon before, he was 'summoned' to a desk: "Where someone asked me, 'What are you doing in the United States, sir?' I said, 'Well, I'm actually here to meet Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show.' He didn't believe me."

We mean, it's hard to imagine Joseph not being recognised but, to be fair, if someone came up to us and said they were here to meet Jimmy Fallon, we'd definitely have some follow-up questions.

Luckily for Joseph, a hero came in to save the day: "One of his colleagues looked over at me, looked at him and said, 'Leave Eddie alone.'"

Proceeding to not leave Eddie alone, the official went on to ask: "You're Eddie Munson? Do you come back next season?"

Joseph admitted that he didn't know but the officer said 'you better!' in reference to his character coming back.

Seems pretty difficult considering this season but, hey, Stranger Things have happened, right?

With TikTok user @jadenbricker sharing a theory that centres on slasher villain Michael Myers from the Halloween franchise. 

Jaden explains how there are several references to Halloween in season four, including one scene where Eddie wears a Michael Myers mask.

The content creator then notes that Michael Myers managed to escape death several times, so what's there to stop Eddie from doing the same?

Jaden even quotes Stranger Things creators the Duffer brothers, who said: "Everything on screen happens for a reason," so what do we think the reason was for Eddie's Michael Myers mask?

And do we think Joseph will get stopped at immigration again?
