Editor’s note: Hey, it’s me, Rachel, HG’s entertainment editor! For some ~strange~ reason, HG’s assistant entertainment editor, Molly, willingly went to an all-night Stranger Things binge racing event. Why? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. When the email first landed in my inbox and I suggested it to Molly, she was like, “YEAH LET ME DO THIS.” And over the past week I must have asked her, “Okay, but are you SURE about this?” roughly a thousand times.
Molly was sure. Molly was going to pull an all-nighter and binge all nine episodes of Stranger Things Season 2 from 12 a.m. until 9 a.m. the next morning. Molly gets a gold medal for commitment to the binge.
And now, just like Will Byers in Season 1 of Stranger Things, Molly has now disappeared — I assume she’s sleeping somewhere, but can we really be sure? Before she went MIA, she managed to send me this email, documenting her overnight adventure. What follows is the recovered transcript from her time in the Upside Down, aka hanging out in a theater with 100+ other Stranger Things fans also committed to watching TV all night.
11:42 p.m.: I also nearly got hit by a Hawkins power and light van. It’s been a really eventful 2 minutes.
11:46 p.m.: There’s a bar here and usually I would be like YAS WINE, but instead I’m like NO, HOLDING OUT FOR THE 5 HOUR ENERGIES IN MY PURSE.
2:23 a.m.: I definitely fell asleep for IDK how long but woke up to some messed up stuff happening to Will, and LEAVE WILL ALONE.
