Here's Why Lucas From "Stranger Things" Is The Friend Every Group Needs

Protect Lucas The Reasonable™ at all costs. (Spoilers, of course!)

Posted on

By now, you may have seen and finished Stranger Things, the new Netflix drama that has a large proportion of the internet hooked.

Otherwise known as Lucas "I don't trust your ass, but ultimately I'm just trying to help you because I'm a GOOD FUCKING FRIEND" Sinclair.

Sure, Lucas' character can come across a bit frustrating at times. He questions everything, he believes nothing straight off the bat, and he's especially skeptical of the show's sweetheart, Eleven.

Look at him. Suspicion in his eyes. This is a boy who's not to be fucked with.

Does his ~reasonable doubt~ not reflect a boy who's been brought up well and been firmly told not to trust strangers?

And in the end, guess which character is brave enough to sock that little shit alien thing in the throat? IT'S LUCAS.

But okay, say you're not convinced. You've seen Stranger Things and you're still upset at Lucas for his distrusting ways. Have you seen him in real life? HOW CAN YOU BE UPSET AT THIS FACE?

Caleb McLaughlin is sharp as hell and, much like the character he plays, clearly has his life together way more than most of us ever will.

Even in the show he has more style than the majority of the characters combined.


Because we've probably all seen this exact jacket on sale in Urban Outfitters for £200.

So listen, friends. Let's appreciate Lucas. He's the friend that will hold your hair back and bring you water while you puke your guts out after a night out he told you not to go on.
