Barb is dead. Those who have seen the first season of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ know it already. But what is perplexing is why the hell was her best friend Nancy the only one concerned about her disappearance. Hey, even Barb’s mother appeared less concerned than Nancy! And what about the boys three? Well, all of their search was focused on finding Will, with the help of Eleven (or El). Barb was just there in passing reference. It was like you go and buy a costly shirt and are okay if they give you an underwear at a discount for buying that shirt.
