Why you feel uncomfortable about that ‘Stranger Things’ kiss in the finale

Fair warning: This is going to have a lot of Stranger Things 2 spoilers.

There was a lot of controversy in a Beyond Stranger Things episode wherein Sadie Sink and Caleb McLaughlin revealed that the kiss during the Hawkins Middle School “Snow Ball” dance wasn’t in the script.

In the Netflix after-show, the Duffer brothers and the cast talk about the final episode and things got a little heated up.

After being asked how shooting the kiss scene was, Ross Duffer goes on the defensive, telling Sink that it was “all her own fault.”

The 15-year-old actress who plays Mad Max in the hit series says that “the kiss was not written in the script.”

“I get there, the first day of filming the Snowball and walking in I see the decorations and stuff. One of you, I think it was you Ross, you say, ‘Ooh, Sadie, you ready for the kiss?’ I’m like, ‘What! No! That’s not in the script… that’s not happening.”

She added, “So the whole day I was like stressed out, I was like oh my god, wait, am I gonna have to…is it gonna happen, is it not… and it didn’t happen that day, but then the second day of filming the Snowball.”

Duffer replies: “You reacted so strongly to this. I was just joking, And you were so freaked out that I was like well, I gotta make her do it now…”

To which Sink replied, “That’s why it’s my fault?”

Caleb who plays Lucas chimed in, recalling the scene: “This is feeling weird.”

However, Matt Duffer pointed out that it wasn’t just extras and cast members and friends and family they kissed in front of, it’s everyone who watched Stranger Things.
