When Stranger Things first came out last year, I tried to sit down and watch it. Everyone else was so obsessed with it, and talking about it and I didn’t want to be left out! However, I got about 4 minutes into the first episode of season one, got scared and turned it off!
Well Season 2 hit Netflix on Oct 27th and once again people are talking about this show and I’m so out of the loop! The Stranger Things kids are on all my favorite talk shows and they’re taking over the world. So I sat down this weekend, powered through that skin crawling first episode and actually got really into it. I spent my entire Sunday on the couch like a big ‘ol potato and I’m proud to report that I am all the way up to season 2, episode 6. Weeeooo! Not gonna lie, I’m a big fan.
Now that I’m knee deep in season 2, I have so many questions. Mostly about Billy and his (sister?) Max? Who are they? where did they come from? Why does he hate Lucas so much? Why is he so creepy?!?!
In fact, Billy is one of the (if not the most) creepiest and mysterious character from season 2 in my opinion.
Dacre Montgomery ‘s (who plays Billy) audition tape for Stranger Things 2 is just as creepy as his character. Montgomery admitted to GQ Magazine that he “kinda went crazy” putting his audition tape together. That’s pretty obvious, but can I just say….damn is he good.
