Robin Buckley, played by Fantastic Maya Hawk, was not introduced yet strange things Season 3. If there is one character that we wish to be present in all the three seasons of the show so far, it is it. Her hilariously dry sense of humor balances the obliviousness of Steve Harrington (Joe Keery). If we’re being honest, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Steve may still be trying to decipher that Russian message behind Scoops Ahoy.
We thought it was time to give the spotlight to our new favorite Hawkins resident. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite moments where Robin Buckley shines.
When she makes fun of Steve for being friends with too many kids In ‘Stranger Things’ season 3
Look, we love Steve Harrington as much as any of you, but we also love seeing him in his place. When strange things As Season 3 opens, we find Steve working at Scoops Ahoy and not joining the most popular fraternity in whatever college he had in mind. That’s right, Steve didn’t get into college like almost everyone else because of bad grades. Her father is forcing her to work at Scoops Ahoy, and this is where we meet Ms. Robin Buckley.
Steve gets used to letting Mike, Lucas, Will and Max sneak into the Starcourt Mall movie theater through the back entrance, accessed via Scoops Ahoy. When they come to catch another blow, Robin calls out, “Hey, Dingus! Your kids are here!”
We can’t knock Steve for being friends with the group—they’ve experienced some pretty terrifying monsters together—but we love that Robin has no problem calling it quits. It’s always good to bring someone with a big head back to reality.

When she translates the Russian message at the center of the plot in ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3
Robin isn’t lying when she tells Dustin and Steve that “his ears are tiny geniuses.” The years spent in the high school band, and the fact that he’s so intelligent, are the gifts two people need when they’re trying to decipher Dustin’s message coming through the radio.
without Robin’s help strange things Season 3, the boys may never have translated the message, but her desire to do anything other than serve ice cream to the mall rats is captured when she asks to twist the puzzle. It’s Robin who ties the whole message together in the end, And She is the one who figures out what the coded audio really means.
When she couldn’t help but brag about how clever she was to hold him captive while simultaneously insulting the Russians
If we’re ranking the bravest people at Hawkins, Robin is right up there with Hopper (David Harbour) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), in our opinion. When she and Steve are captured by the Russians, she lays it all out on the table about how dumb the Russians were with their radio puzzle.
“You broadcast that stupid detective all over town and we picked it up on our cerebro, and we broke it in one day. One day! You think you’re so smart, but some kid who eats ice cream for his livelihood Let’s crack your code in a day.
Keep in mind, she is literally tied to a chair surrounded by Russian military men. We don’t have the guts to say that, but we’re glad he did.

When she helps Steve get a job at the local video store and officially calls him her friend
Months later, after the Battle of Starcourt strange things Season 3, Robin and Steve are no longer working at Scoops Ahoy and are looking for a job. There wasn’t a better place to work in the ’80s than your local video store, so it’s understandable why both would apply there. They walk in, and we see our old friend Keith. (Remember Keith from the arcade called The Palace strange things season 2?)
Steve is lacking in the movie trivia department. When Keith swiftly questions him about his favorite movies, it is clear that Keith is not impressed. Only when Robin reassures Keith about all the women who come to see Steve, he breaks down and hires them both. It’s sweet, and all, but the cherry on top is the last bit of conversation. Keith isn’t sure why Robin wants to help Steve get a job. He asks her if he has anything for her. She smiles and replies, “We’re just… um, we’re just friends.”
We can’t wait for more Robin Buckley moments strange things Season 4. It arrives on Netflix in 2022.
