'Stranger Things' Season 3 could see new couple Jonathan and Nancy join Hawkins Post, a very risky move
The two went from being strangers to lovers and the last time they were together, they managed to shut down the Hawkins Lab
'Stranger Things' Season 3 might still be a few months away but the Netflix show is already churning out several theories about the upcoming season. Fans, who are quite excited to see the kids growing up to be amazing teenagers, are wondering who could be the Demogorgon's next kill? In the previous two seasons, two of our favorite characters died literally without any reason.
While in Season 1 poor Barb (Shannon Purser) was pulled into the pool when she was waiting for Nancy (Natalie Dyre) to come over with her party mode on, Joyce (Winona Ryder) lost her probable fiance, Bob Newby (Sean Astin) in Season 2 when the demodogs attacked Bob who had been dating Joyce for almost a year.
With Season 3 of the Duffer Brothers-created show right around the corner, it seems that there is a risk of more deaths particularly of Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) and Nancy. As the brother of Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), Jonathan is a quiet boy who just like Will does not have too many friends.
In fact, Jonathan probably has no friends at all, but he has always liked Nancy, who for the longest time in Season 1 and part of Season 2 dated the high-school, jock-turned-best-baby sitter in the world, Steve Harrington (Joe Kerry). Jonathan and Nancy finally confessed their feelings for each other in Season 2, and together they managed to disclose the truth behind Barb's disappearance and what happened with her in the Upside Down.
It seems that the two are about to get into some trouble in Season 3. The trailer for the latest season sees Jonathan and Nancy sitting at the office of the Hawkins Post. Does that mean the two are working as journalists now? The two had worked together with a local journalist, James Murray (Brett Gelman), whose report on Hawkins Lab and its portal to the Upside Down led it to finally shut down.
Chances are, Jonathan and Nancy are now part of the press but by the looks on their faces, it seems they have discovered something quite uncomforting. Fans are, on the other hand, losing it over Nancy's look. One fan on Reddit went on to describe her look as the perfect imitation of the '80s.
The fan stated: "Nancy's overall style in terms of bright colors and big hair (possibly a perm) is very on point with women in the mid-80's. The still of her in the sundress with the Aqua-Net curls was trendy for a young professional lady. Now the frizzy-edges and smeared makeup that she has in the trailer, where she looks like a mix of Pat Benator and Blondie, is likely a result of humidity/running from monsters/fire sprinklers, take your pick."
But what about Jonathan? Let's just say that if the boy dies, it will have a major impact on the show since Jonathan is the only father-figure in Will's life. With his absence, chances are Will will be forced to take charge of his life, while Joyce has to let him be.
On the other hand, Jonathan's death might be the only one in 'Stranger Things' which will be a fair one. The previous two deaths weren't exactly necessary since they did not leave behind a traumatic impact as none of them were main characters. However, Jonathan is in the main cast and if he dies, the storyline itself might take a very different turn altogether.
In conclusion, Jonathan might be entering the press and that would require him to reach beyond limits in order to gather news. As we know being a journalist is not easy, and if you are reporting on the Upside Down, then may God be with you!
