We haven’t seen Nancy have a single friend since season 1 when Barb was killed. So it was nice that the Duffer Brothers gave us an unlikely team – Nancy and Robin. The two girls are polar opposites but hey who doesn’t love a strong female friendship? Dustin and Steve are going strong and we might have another pairing to root for in the next season!

Nancy took time to warm up to Robin
It was Robin that suggested that the two girls stick together, giving Steve the babysitting responsibility again. Nancy was at first irked with Robin’s constant chatter but eventually warmed up to her. After all, it was because of Robin’s geeky instincts that they found some clue about Vecna in the library. Also, it was Robin’s presence of mind that got them the 10 minutes with the high-security psychiatric patient, Victor Creel.
The shift to a nickname
The two girls worked well together as a team. They went from “you’re a weird runner” to “Nancy is a genius”. In fact, it was Nancy that suggested that they investigate the Creel house together and Robin sided with Nancy when Dustin questioned her methods. Robin even started calling her Nance and not Nancy and it’s only the people closest to her who get to call her that.
We now hope that these two become best friends and Nancy really needs one! We are rooting for you #RONANCE!
