Since its premiere this past July, Netflix’s smash hit “Stranger Things” has captured the imagination of the public at large, with many clamoring for more episodes already. While the series features many beloved characters, there’s one minor character that has received much attention in recent weeks: Barb (Shannon Purser), best friend of Nancy Wheeler, who goes to Steve’s party with her, ends up being snatched into the Upside Down by the Demogorgon, and then later found dead. Many fans have connected with Barb’s sense of decency and argued she didn’t deserve such a terrible fate.
Well, it seems like Jimmy Fallon and the “Tonight Show” team have heard these cries and brought Barb back for a sketch featuring all of the kids from “Stranger Things” kids, and she is not pleased that she was left behind. Played by actor and “Tonight Show” writer A.D. Miles, Barb lets out a slew obscenities at the kids for leaving her in the Upside Down and countering every one of their excuses for not finding her. “I guess no one could find you. It was pretty dark down there,” says Lucas. “Good point! I don’t have a very distinctive look,” says Barb sarcastically. “I don’t have bright red Ronald McDonald hair, old granny glasses, and a librarian’s blouse!” Watch the clip below and find out how exactly she returned to the real below.
“Stranger Things” is currently streaming on Netflix.
