Here's a Strange Thing: Jonathan and Nancy Might Be Dating in Real Life
The first season of Netflix megahit Stranger Things ended with a good handful of cliffhangers, but one thing seemed pretty cut and dried. Even though Nancy (Natalia Dyer) seems to go back and forth in a love triangle between her boyfriend, Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), and the bashful Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton), the final episode confirms that she ends up with Steve. Here's the thing: we must be living in the Upside Down here, because it would seem that costars Natalia and Charlie might be romantically entangled in real life, according to a new report from Us Weekly.
The speculation stems from new photos of the alleged couple that have emerged; the two were spotted catching a flight out of LA together on Monday. Of course, with no confirmation and no concrete displays of affection, it's equally possible that they're just friends. And, for the record, they both attended the Golden Globe Awards the day before. Now that we know season two of the show is in production, they may just have been heading back to set together.
All the above considered, Charlie and Natalia have been spending their free time together for months. Natalia featured him in a Halloween snap this past October, and according to Us, they were also seen grabbing coffee in her hometown, Nashville. We'll leave the rest of the detective work up to you, but we'd be lying if we said this doesn't affect our secret hopes for more romance in Stranger Things season two.
