Barb Makes A Heated Return To ‘Stranger Things’ In This Hilarious Parody
Despite only being in a few episodes of “Stranger Things,” Barb is a fan favorite character. A loyal friend to Nancy, Barb put up with a lot to support her BFF, but ultimately ended up being sucked into the Upside Down and dying an ill-fated death. It only makes sense that she would be angry at Nancy (and frankly, everyone else trying to save Will) because where is the justice for poor, unfortunate soul, Barb?
The “Stranger Things” kids—Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin—reunited on “The Tonight Show” last night to perform a parody with Jimmy Fallon and writer A.D. Miles. Let’s just say Barb had a chance to express her anger.
The kids are in the basement playing Dungeons and Dragons when Fallon—playing a seriously spot-on Steve—interrupts their game to tell them he has a New Year’s Eve present for them. Dun dun dun.
All of a sudden, the lights start to flicker and down comes BARB (Miles), glasses, librarian blouse and all. At first, Barb plays at cool, but then she lashes out at the boys, calling them out for only rescuing Will and leaving her to die with slugs crawling out of her mouth. You tell ’em, Barb!
The kids attempt to apologize and explain themselves, with Dustin saying, “You seemed like you could take care of yourself.”
“Nobody even cares I was missing!” Barb screams back. “No search party for Barb, no fake corpse stuffed with cotton for Barb!” Yep, all true. After coughing up yet another slug, she tells the kids she escaped the Upside Down by trading Will to the Demogorgon. Oh snap. In terms of being back for season two, forget it—“Barb’s getting her own Netflix spin-off — Orange Is The New Bitch.”
TBH, I’d totally tune in.
