A jerk turned good buddy
Steve is one of the important characters in the Netflix series Stranger Things and probably the one who has evolved the most since the beginning of the series. In season one, he was Nancy’s new boyfriend, the popular boy of the school par excellence while Nancy was rather among the serious and studious students. When Nancy’s friend Beverly is kidnapped by the demogorgon, Steve is not much help and he is also very jealous of her friendship with Jonathan, Will’s older brother, the other boy kidnapped by the demogorgon. Together, they decide to go fight the demogorgon and when Steve is finally made aware of what is going on, he ends up trying to help them. At the beginning of season 2, Nancy is still dating Steve but it doesn’t go very well and she ends up leaving him, finally turning to Jonathan with whom she has much more in common. Steve doesn’t take it as hard as one might imagine and he finds himself helping Dustin when he needs help, even becoming a sort of mentor to the young boy, at least as far as the girls are concerned.
