No offense, but Bob is a hero.


Stranger Things season 1 gave us the somewhat successful campaign to get #JusticeForBarb. This season, our hearts have been broken by another iconic character's demise. Bob Newby, we hardly knew ye. 

Joyce Byers' boyfriend, Bob Newby, won fans over with his ever-present dad humour, his love of Kenny Rogers, and his delightfully sincere disposition.

If you weren't sure you trusted Bob at first, don't worry, you're not alone. 

Many people believed that Bob could have been a double agent, spying on Will Byers and pretending to love Joyce. He was almost too nice and people believed that he could not be trusted. 

Of course, Bob eventually proved himself to be a prince among men before he was tragically killed in episode 8. 

Now, the internet is demanding #JusticeForBob and we're still EMOTIONAL AF just thinking about him.

Facts are FACTS. In a ranking of characters based on how pure their hearts were, Bob would be right at the top. The Duffer brothers gave us a heartbreak moment for the ages. 

The Duffer brothers' love of killing characters whose names start with the letter 'B' has even spawned an interesting theory about who might die in season 3.

If Billy is given a season 3 redemption arc and killed off I'm never trusting any character whose name starts with the letter 'B'.

*Puts on "How Do I Break It To My Heart" by Kenny Rogers* REST IN POWER, SWEET PRINCE.
