While the second season of Stranger Things may have received positive reviews from fans and critics alike, people are not at all pleased about the finale ep and the writers are getting dragged online.
In the episode, Max (Sadie Sink) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) kiss at Hawkins Middle School Snow Ball which signifies the next step in their relationship.
While the scene may have initially been well received, a behind-the-scenes look at the episode has fans all kinds of angry.
During the after show Beyond Stranger Things 2, Sadie reveals that the kiss wasn't originally in the script but was added later by the Duffer brothers which made her V. uncomfortable.
“It was not written in the script. The kiss was not written in the script,” she said.
“I get there the first day of filming the Snow Ball, me and Noah [Schnapp] are walking in, seeing the decorations and stuff. One of you – I think it was you, Ross – was like, ‘Oh Sadie, you ready for the kiss?’ I’m like, ‘What? Nope! That’s not in the script. That’s not happening.’ And so the whole day I was stressed out.”
“You reacted so strongly to this. I was just joking,” replied Ross Duffer. “And you were so freaked out I was like oh, well, I gotta make you do it now. That’s what happened. That’s why it’s your fault.”
Following this exchange, fans have taken to Twitter to blast the Duffer brothers for putting the actress in an uncomfortable position.
