10 Times We Shipped Mike and El on “Stranger Things” Season 1

I would compare “Stranger Things” Season 1 to something like a whirlwind romance. It was new. It came out of nowhere. It caught us by surprise. It got us hooked. And just like that, it was over and done. And now we are all hungover by it, waiting earnestly (while having withdrawals) for its return.

To make this waiting game somewhat bearable (or quite possibly even more unbearable), it might help to look back to the times the show tugged our heartstrings one way or another. Like those times Mike and El became totally ship-worthy.

***WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!! ***

1. Whenever Mike would defend El from his friends because they found her shady or just flat-out weird
