Bottom line: This one's not fun, but it was certainly a kiss that wasn't supposed to happen. On the final episode of the second season of "Stranger Things," Max (Sadie Sink) kisses Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin). The kiss was unscripted, and during an episode of "Beyond Stranger Things," Sink didn't seem to be entirely comfortable with the off-script scene.
"I'm like, 'What! No! That’s not in the script ... that’s not happening,'" Sink recalled, per an episode recap from Indie Wire. "So the whole day I was like stressed out, I was like, 'Oh my god, wait, am I gonna have to' ... It didn't happen that day, but then the second day of filming the Snow Ball."
Ross Duffer, co-creator and one-half of the Duffer brothers, joked, "You reacted so strongly to this — I was just joking — and you were so freaked out that I was like, 'Well, I gotta make her do it now' ... that’s what happened, that’s why I’m saying it’s your fault."
Duffer's comments caused controversy, with fans accusing him of, at the very least, being unprofessional.
