Turns out that the many cries for #JusticeForBarb following season one of Stranger Things were all for naught.

Little did we know that rather than being devoured by the Demogorgon, Barb was actually being seduced by the monster.

“I’ve been here since the ’80s!” Barb told host Adam DeVine when he was accidentally sent to the Upside Down by Allison Williams during the show. “We’ve made it our home.”

She even gave Devine a very solid explanation for how they all ended up “down there” and it involves weed.


SO glad everything seems to have worked out for her. We were all so very concerned.
