WARNING: IT CHAPTER TWO SPOILERS…
IT CHAPTER TWO finally hit theaters earlier this month and saw the addition of an adult cast playing the grow-up versions of everyone’s favorite kids from Derry. While the kids may have all survived the events of the first movie, a couple of them weren’t so lucky as adults. One of the casualties included Eddie Kaspbrak, who was played by both Jack Dylan Grazer and James Ransone. When Eddie died, it was clear that the person most upset was Richie Tozier, who was played by Finn Wolfhard and Bill Hader. The movie's ending reveals that Richie had feelings for Eddie, which means the Internet is now full of “Reddie” shippers. Well, Ransone’s most recent Instagram post shows an alternate version in which Richie also didn’t survive.

While some people were confused by the post, it also pleased many fans of “Reddie,” who are taking it to mean that a part of Richie died when his friend did. Of course, knowing Ransone’s sense of humor, he probably posted the photo just to mess with people (he did not include a caption).
Here are some comments from fans:
“Reddie rights,” @crookdkind wrote.
“Eddie died, Richie loved Eddie, so it's like saying ‘Rip Reddie,’” @avengerls explained.
“Rip Richie Tozier he ain’t dead I just miss him,” @fairlykaylin added.
So far, IT CHAPTER TWO has been met with mixed reviews, currently standing at 62% on Rotten Tomatoes (although, the audience score is 79%). Comicbook.com's Brandon Davis sums it up succinctly in his IT CHAPTER TWO review - which you can read HERE, or watch in the video above.2comments
