The Golden Globes opening sequence showed Stranger Things Season 2 stars Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) rapping with Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Finn Wolfhard (Mike). That wasn’t the cutest or most surprising of the cameo, though. It was their proclamation at the end of the rap: “Barb is still alive.”
Wait, what? Barbara (Shannon Purser), who died in Season 1, while waiting for her friend Nancy (Natalia Dyer), is alive? Unfortunately, that part of the rap was only a joke, according to Brown herself.
Nope, Barb remains dead in Stranger Things Season 2
We would love to see Barbara come back for Stranger Things Season 2. Fans have always felt that her story is not yet done, and that it is unfair for the whole town to just gloss over what happened to her. They all believe she just run away from home, really?
Matt Duffer, one part of The Duffer Brothers that created Stranger Things, said in August 2016 that Barbara was “almost” definitely dead. He said, though, that there will be “some justice” for the character. Apparently, Duffer is aware that people were frustrated about the way the town dealt with what happened to Barbara.
He explained that something is happening with the Barbara case, but they are not spending any screen time on it. Perhaps, the focus on the main plot of Eleven saving Will, Mike, Lucas, and Dustin is just too much.
Stranger Things was nominated for Best Television Series, Drama at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, but fell to The Crown. Winona Ryder, who plays Joyce Byers, was also nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Drama.
