Watch Joe Keery and Dacre Montgomery Talking Dirty About Gloves and How Is Lucas Involved

#Watch #Joe #Keery #Dacre #Montgomery #Talking #Dirty #Gloves #Lucas #Involved

We all love the bromance between Dustin and Stever on screen. But the underrated bromance between Joe Keery and Dacre Montgomery needs a shoutout too! 

Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 2 premiered on July 1 to much fanfare. After the events of Volume 1, and gazillion theories later, fans finally got their answers. Although not all the answers, some of them. The Duffer brothers have still kept some of the things unexplained which we are hoping gets clarified in season 5. Moreover, season 5 is the final season of the Netflix show. 

Joe Keery and Dacre Montgomery acting like 12-year-olds win hearts 

In this old video, the cast was reviewing 80s fashion fads. They were given a pair of arm gloves which were all the rage back then. However, for the boys, it looked like it wasn’t meant for the arms. Joe Keery, who plays the Steve-iconic-hair, acts innocent at first but loses his act when Dacre (Billy) pulls out a bigger arm glove. They end up snickering the whole video after making dirty jokes. 

The old video has caught the attention of the fans recently, and fans are making jokes that it’s the arm gloves that Erica found under Lucas’s bed. In the new season, Lucas tries to hide things from Erica. But the Smartypants blackmails her brother to spill everything otherwise she’ll tell everything she found under his bed to their parents. Obviously, that gets him talking. 

Dacre exited the show in season 3 when Billy sacrificed himself. However, he does appear in Stranger Things season 4, as a memory. Whereas Steve continues his bravado and babysitting duties in the current season as well.

Versatile Sadie Sink Gives Tough Competition to ‘Stranger Things’ Co-star Millie Bobby Brown in Hair Styling

#Sadie #Sink #Takes #Journey #Max #Mayfield #Stranger

We all have our stories to tell. Along the journey, we make bonds unbreakable and subplots that are just amazeballs. But in the end, it’s just us with a pen and an empty paper to write our own plot. Well, that’s not limited to real life only. Fictional characters have anecdotes more enticing than anyone else. And Stranger Things folks have it done just right. Along with the entire plot, each one of them has a unique story to tell. One such is that of Max Mayfield. And how beautiful it would feel to listen to it from non-other than Sadie Sink, the actress herself.

Max Mayfield is a strong character who won our hearts just as she entered the Hawkins high school back in season 2. The little girl who didn’t fear showing her middle finger to Billy, the annoying brother. And a teenager who risked her life to save the township of Hawkins. Max Mayfield is everything but boring. And undoubtedly, all the credits go to Sadie Sink, the actress who embodied the character so well that we couldn’t imagine anyone else playing the role.

Recently, after the premiere of volume 2 of Stranger Things season 4, Sadie took it to herself to tell us about the journey of this amazing character throughout the series.

Sadie Sink thinks her character is a stunning blend of sarcasm and smartness

Well, there’s no denial of Sadie Sink’s remark about Max Mayfield. But that’s not all. In the video, the actress takes us on the beautiful journey of Maxine in the series. From a girl who kept pretty much everything to herself in the second season to the one who became her friend’s favorite and almost sacrificed herself to save the world. Max is truly a smart and honest girl the heroes of Hawkins needed in Netflix’s Stranger Things.

She says, “her journey with grieving Billy and the guilt she feels along with it. I feel like you are constantly peeling back layer after layer.” She thinks that the side of Max where she keeps pretty much everything to herself and then gradually opens up about it is interesting. She also feels that it has been really cool for Max as the audience gets to see different sides of her each season. One thing that remained the same about Max, according to her, is “she stays fiercely loyal, no matter what happens in Hawkins.”
