We will issue a Code Shut-Your-Mouth to anyone who dares suggest that Lucas’ sublimely snarky kid sister shouldn’t be given a whole lot more scenes to steal in Season 3.
6. An Apology From Billy
We get that his and Max’s home life isn’t exactly Family Ties. Nonetheless, if he isn’t supposed to come off as a raging racist, he’s going to have to make not just peace with Lucas, he’s going to have to make amends to him.
5. A May/December Affair
Speaking of Billy… It’d scandalize Hawkins, but after that hilarious meeting between the hunk and Mrs. Wheeler, Stranger Thingshas to cast her as his Mrs. Robinson, right? Right?!?
Even a fine bromance can’t always mend a broken heart. So we’re counting on Steve and Dustin to meet new girls who’ll raise their spirits as high as four puffs of Farrah Fawcett hairspray does their hair.

After what “Papa” did not only to her but her mother, Jane deserves to heal her “terrible wound” by exacting overdue payback against the diabolical doctor.
2. A Joyce/Hopper Romance
