My Favorite Moments of Stranger Things Season 2

Before Thanksgiving break, I was one of those people scoffing at the Stranger Things phenomenon and swearing I would never get obsessed with another show again... then my curiosity got the best of me, of course, and I assumed my true form: fangirl extraordinaire.

We won’t even get into season one because season two left me with so many Easter eggs (and so many unanswered questions, cough cough) to obsess over. So, while we’re all busy tearing our hair out waiting for season three, let’s relive some of the best moments of Stranger Things season two before it stops feeling fresh…

 

When Dad!Hopper emerged from the wild…

I’m convinced this is the only reason Eleven grew her hair out.

 

When everything was “totally tubular”...

Still not sure what it means, but I like it.

 

When Nancy got way too drunk (and became relatable AF)...

Nancy is all of us on Thirsty Thursday.

 

When Eleven just wanted to go trick-or-treating…

What was that sound? Oh, just my heart breaking.

 

When the boys wore matching Ghostbusters costumes…

“Guys. Guys. GUYS!!!!!”

 

When Lucas called out systemic racism…

“Why? Because he’s black?”

 

When Bob actually became useful for 0.2 seconds…

“Isn’t that the guy from Lord of the Rings?” - me during this entire subplot

 

When Murray basically read your mind…

I love it how the Duffer brothers totally knew they were torturing me this whole time.

 

When this FINALLY happened…

It took vodka and a crazy conspiracy theorist, but still. FINALLY!

 

When Jonathan did a spit take…

I did too, TBH.  

 

When Dustin asks Steve about his bat…

Steve x Bat 5ever.

 

When Steve became a father of four…

THE HANDS ON THE HIPS. TOO MUCH.  

 

When Mike was a better boyfriend than most guys twice his age…

“I never gave up on you. I called you every night.”

 

When Dad!Steve defended his offspring…

You tried, Steve. A+ for effort.

 

When half-unconscious Steve woke up to a middle schooler driving…

Well, this sums up my feelings about the entire season.

 

When fire was a no…

Dial 1 to vote for the dramatic turnaround, 2 for the flamboyant hand gestures.  

 

When Jonathan couldn’t handle it....

Was this fanservice? Maybe a little. Was I the fan being serviced? Absolutely.

 

When Eleven officially became a Hopper…

Aka actual footage of the moment me and Hopper both quit our diets.

 

When Eleven and Mike finally went to the Snow Ball…

Too pure for this world.

 

When Nancy danced with Dustin…

Dustin’s my favorite, too.

 

When Jonathan and Nancy exchanged this meaningful glance…

DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO FIND THIS AS A GIF?  

Well... this began as me trying to write a Her Campus article and ended with me deep in a Tumblr binge at 11:10 PM. When’s Season 3 dropping again?
