On this weekend's What to Watch podcast, our hosts prepare for Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Vecna's (super scary monster) highly-anticipated showdown in the final season 4 episodes of Netflix's Stranger Things.

Topping this weekend's must-watch list, things are about to get a lot stranger and a lot bigger on Stranger Things, as the final two movie-length episodes of season 4 arrive. Actor Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays the role of Vecna, tells EW, "if you thought that it was as big as it could get, it's not. It goes further both visually, storywise, and emotionally for all the characters. It really is quite an explosive climax... we get to know more as well. We get to learn a lot more as an audience."

Also in this episode, Joey King gets into action-hero mode in the movie The Princess, now streaming on Hulu, where she goes to battle to save her kingdom and family. Chris Pratt is caught up in a military conspiracy — or is he? — in the Amazon action-thriller series The Terminal List. Trixie Mattel's renovation of a Palm Springs motel continues on the Discovery+ series Trixie Motel — and her friend Iggy Azalea stops by to help. The attention then turns to Miss Mississippi on the new episode of Starz's P-Valley; Top Gear America cohost Rob Corddry tells us what he's watching; Tim Allen gives his thoughts on the new Lightyear; we take a look back at Lizzo's Carpool Karaoke, and more.

Listen to today's full episode and follow along with the What To Watch podcast -- now streaming on Audacy -- Entertainment Weekly's daily guide to the shows that should be on your radar -- be it network, cable, premium or streaming -- hosted by Gerrad Hall with producer Ashley Boucher, editor Lauren Klein, writer Calie Schepp, and executive producer Chanelle Johnson.
