If you checked out Netflix’s Stranger Things, you probably felt miserable seeing one of the show’s few innocent teens, Barb, done away with by the nasty Demi gorgon. Given the fact that she’s one of the only key characters to meet a grim demise, it was a little heartbreaking. It also left fans feeling quite upset.
We get it. Barb was an awesome voice of reason. If anyone in the show deserved to survive to see season two, it was Barb.
Show creators Matt and Ross Duffer have heard the outpouring of displeasure with the decision to kill Barb. While we won’t see the character magically resurrected (or will we?), we will see some form of “justice for Barb.”
According to Duffer, who spoke with IGN, “Barb will not be forgotten. We’ll make sure there’s some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn’t seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We’re just not spending any screen time on it.
“It’s not like her parents are like ‘Oh Barb left. She died!’ Season One actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it’s a really short period of time. So part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”
So, we’ll get to see Barb’s sub-plot resolved, to an extent, but, we’re never going to see the good girl make a return. Bummer!
