Stranger Things has turned out to be one of the vital pleasant, universally cherished and most adopted Netflix originals in current historical past. It’s additionally a collection infamous for introducing very lovable characters for singular seasons solely to kill them off in probably the most tragic methods doable.
One of those characters, method again in Stranger Things 2, was Bob, and a current Tweet from the Stranger Things writers room has revealed his demise may have been so much nastier and will have created some tough dynamics for relationships throughout the Byers household.
As we all know, Bob was tragically mauled to loss of life by a demodog contained in the Hawkins analysis facility, creating sufficient of a distraction for the remainder of our heroes to flee unscathed. It seems, an earlier pitch for his arc was to fulfill his demise by the hands of Will whereas possessed by the Mindflayer.
Stranger Things 2 launched its viewers to a brand-new villain within the type of the Mind Flayer, which broadened the scope of the story past the chittering Demogorgon creature hiding within the Upside Down, and served as our first trace that there have been far more malevolent forces at play than initially anticipated.
Will was in thrall to the Mind Flayer for almost all of Stranger Things 2, so it wouldn’t have been an excessive amount of of a stretch for the monster to lash out and take down Bob had he been current for Will’s (for lack of a greater phrase) exorcism.
Of course, whereas Will’s actions wouldn’t have been his personal, it nonetheless most likely would’ve proved a bit of bit awkward for the child to find he’d simply butchered his mother’s new boyfriend. He and Joyce have already been by sufficient, and now a everlasting shadow will get solid on their relationship with Bob’s blood on Will’s arms? Yikes.
With that darkish and sophisticated prospect in retailer for Will and Joyce, I believe it’s honest to say that if Bob needed to go, we’re glad it went down the best way it did.
In the meantime, we proceed to patiently stare on the clock and depend down the minutes to Stranger Things 5, which would be the last season within the unique collection, although nearly definitely not the final story in the universe.
