Who is Robin Buckley?
Alongside her former classmate Steve Harrington, Robin started working at the newly constructed Starcourt Mall’s Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop in the summer of 1985. Due to his ephemeral popularity and inability to draw in any female customers, Robin frequently poked fun of Steve.
Due to Robin’s multilingualism, she helps Steve and Dustin Henderson as they are trying to decipher a Russian code that Dustin learned through his radio.
She discovers that the Russians are smuggling supplies into Hawkins through the mall’s restaurants and shops, and that the only way to discover what they are smuggling is by crawling through the mall’s vents.
The group learns that Russians have constructed a lab beneath the mall to create a gateway to another realm that Steve and Dustin had previously helped to close by bribing one of the store’s customers, Erica, to crawl through and explore in exchange for free ice cream.
After being eventually apprehended and held captive, Steve and Robin bond over their shared experience as outsiders before being drugged by scientists and experiencing incredible highs. Robin and Steve go off to the restroom to detox after Dustin and Erica rescue them and bring them to the surface.
There, Robin slowly reveals that she is a lesbian as Steve tries to confess his sexual affections for her. However, this just serves to deepen their bond, and eventually, Robin joins Steve’s companions in taking down the Mind Flayer.
Who is Robin Buckley’s Girlfriend?
By the spring of 1986, Robin is still putting up with Steve’s rants about his convoluted love life. Robin has a serious infatuation with Vickie, a bandmate from Hawkins High, but she makes Robin feel awkward.
