'Stranger Things' 2 introduced us to Billy Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery), a teen hunk and a ladies man, not to mention, a bully, and Steve Harrington's (Joe Keery) bitter nemesis on the basketball court.
Ahead of the much-anticipated third season of the show, Netflix released a promo titled 'Summer in Hawkins' that shows Billy play a lifeguard in a public swimming pool. And guess who gets his personal attention? Karen Wheeler.
That's right folks. Wheeler (Cara Buono) who plays Mike's (Finn Wolfhard) mother was shown to have the hots for Billy in one of the episodes of the second season, even if the encounter lasted just a few minutes. In the new clip, Karen and her friends are shown sunbathing by the poolside and waiting for Billy to take his turn as the lifeguard on duty so that they can grab his attention. Karen succeeds when Billy compliments her on her swimsuit.
Billy though doesn't seem to have changed. He was shown as Mr. Authority in season 2 and seems to continue in the same vein when her orders a kid to not run on the poolside, and warns him that he would bar him if it were to happen again. What is also evident is the attention that the muscled teen grabs while swaggering around the beach.
By the looks of it, it does seem like there might be some chemistry between Karen and Billy at some point in the season after all.
