    13 "Stranger Things" Moments That (Probably) Still Matter

    No time to binge-watch Stranger Things before the new season? We got you covered!

    Toast some Eggos and ~rejoice~ because Stranger Things 2 is coming to Netflix this Friday, Oct. 27!

    We all remember the Stranger Things basics...

    ...Will Byers disappeared in the first episode.

    Joyce is Will's mom and she's a bit...hyper.

    Hopper is the sheriff with attitude.

    Will's friends are a ragtag group of loveable nerds.

    They befriend Eleven, a mysterious girl with superpowers.

    Meanwhile, the teens from Hawkins High have some drama of their own.

    Johnathan (Will's brother) is brooding all over town.

    Nancy (Mike's sister) is, like, super into Steve...
