See what I did there?

Like millions of others, I have been waiting for season 2 of Stranger Things to come out since I finished binge-watching it a year ago. So of course when it finally premiered on Netflix last week, I jumped at the first chance I got in my free time to start. Listed below are some of the most shocking, best, and cutest parts of season 2:

SPOILER ALERT BELOW (I won't give away anything about the main plot, though, so don't worry)

1. I still love Hopper.

At the end of season 1, I didn't know I could love this character even more, but it happened. While everyone thought Eleven was gone for good, Detective Jim Hopper was keeping her safe the whole time. He treats her like the daughter he lost; teaches her new words, feeds her, and sets boundaries for her. It's just so cute!

2. Joyce got a boyfriend?!

We all hated her ex-husband Lonnie from the start, so it's nice to see Ms. Byers with a new love interest. However, this new beau, Bob, just doesn't seem right for the family; he's just too normal and honestly a little boring. And let's be real, I ship Joyce and Hopper so much, so Bob is really just delaying this. Not to worry though, (SPOILER) Bob dies at the hands (paws?) of "demidogs" from the upside down. Sorry.

3. Go Nancy!

While drunk at a Halloween party, Nancy tells Steve that she doesn't love him. Now I don't know about you, but Steve really redeemed himself in my eyes by the end of season 1, so I didn't know how to feel when this happened. But then Jonathan took her home and I got over that confusion real quick. I hope the two of them can figure their sh*t out in season 3 (if Charlie Heaton can even make it back into the U.S. for filming)

4. We all need a friend like Mike.

Mike is always always always there for his friends when they need him most. When Will was having those "now memories" and thought he was going crazy, Mike sympathized and told him they'd go crazy together. If that doesn't remind you of any of your friendships, you need to find new friends.

5. Who are Max and Billy?

Why are they in Hawkins? The two of them only brought negative vibes to town and I'm not down for it. And okay, maybe she's cute with Lucas but was this really a necessary addition to the cast? The answer is no. Their appearance just adds so much confusion, which the series definitely does not need more of.

6. Eleven meets her mom!

We learn the tragic history of their separation along with Eleven herself, whose real name is actually Jane! Her mother, Terry, however, is in horrible condition when Eleven eventually finds her, due to the electric shock "therapy" the scientists gave her when she tried to retrieve her daughter from their lab.

7. What the heck Dustin?

Dustin kept some creepy animal from the upside down as a pet when his friends specifically told him not to. Friends don't lie, Dusty! So it was no shocker when that little creature grew into a full-blown "demidog" and ate his mother's cat. As a cat lover, I did not appreciate this behavior from Dustin, no matter how much everyone loves him.

8. 008?!

Eleven isn't the only one with powers! When looking through her mother's files, she found a girl she recognized. This girl was labeled number 8 and can make people see whatever she wants them to. This power ended up helping Connie, which we find out is her real name, and her gang get revenge one those who harmed her. Pretty cool, but definitely not Eleven's scene. I hope though, that she makes a reappearance in season 3.

9. What is going on?!

The science-fiction plot of the season is so mind-blowing and fascinating but there's no way I'm going to be able to explain that here. So go watch it yourself, you won't be disappointed.

10. Justice for Barb!

Barbara and her family finally get some justice, even if what came out wasn't the truth. However, she is not alive, which some predictions for season 2 entailed. They had a funeral and everything. But at least there is peace for her parents.

11. How could there possibly be a third season?!

Just like at the end of season 1, I am so curious about what the writers of the show could possibly create! The ending seemed so perfect and happy. These guys are too creative though, I'm sure I'll be just as shocked and impressed by season 3 as I was this season.

Sandra Oh was Nominated for an Emmy, and can I just say, It's about time

"Yeah, well, don't write your address on your suitcase in case it gets stolen by a psychopath." -Eve, Killing Eve (2018)

296

The Emmy's are a time for some of the best shows and performances of the year to get honored. This year, a handful of my favorites were up for nomination. "Black Mirror," "Portlandia," "Bob's Burgers," and actress Sandra Oh.

Sandra Oh was nominated for best lead actress in a drama series for "Killing Eve"; the first woman of Asian descent to ever be nominated for this category! Although, this isn't her first time being nominated. She was previously nominated five times for supporting actress for "Grey's Anatomy"––she never won.

I am a huge "Grey's Anatomy" fan. So you're telling me, after Sandra Oh's character, Christina Yang, had suffered an ectopic pregnancy which almost killed her, being left at the altar by Burke, suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after having a gun held to her head in the midst of trying to save Derek, gets cheated on by Hunt, goes through a divorce, survives a plane crash but watched her friends and colleagues die, and not to mention she deserved to win that Harper Avery award but didn't; you're telling me after all these extraordinary performances she didn't win at all? Not one of the five times? Unbelievable.

Although it won't be for "Grey's Anatomy" this time, it's about time Sandra Oh gets the recognition she deserves. Sandra Oh departed from Grey's Anatomy after season ten and has since grabbed viewers' attention for her role in "Killing Eve," the show that she is being nominated for. This show centers around Sandra Oh's character, Eve, a desk-bound M15 officer who finds herself in the midst of a cat and mouse game with an assassin. If you need a new show to watch, this is an intriguing one to start.

To think, Sandra Oh is the FIRST actress of Asian descent to be nominated for this category. It's 2018, and I can't emphasize enough how much representation matters. Growing up as an Asian-American, I found it hard to resonate with characters of Asian descent who fit the stereotypical identity that everyone makes assumptions about. That wasn't who I was, nor did I want to be. Hollywood has created a narrative around Asians and Asian-Americans to fit a typecast for films and television shows but I for one believe Sandra Oh has defied that logic. She's brilliant and has proven viewers everywhere the hardworking, versatile actress she can be. From the principal in "Princess Diaries" to a dedicated cardiothoracic surgeon on "Grey's Anatomy" to an M15 officer trying to find an assassin, the limit does not exist.

The lack of Asian descents taking home the famous statue has only been numbered down to two and let's be honest here, there needs to be a change. As much as the internet pushed for Leonardo DiCaprio to finally win that Oscar he deserved, we need to push for Sandra Oh to break the internet and give her the Emmy she deserves.
