For example, in Season 1, Nancy's friend Barb (played by Shannon Purser) was killed by the Demogorgon. In Season 2, viewers were introduced to Joyce's (played by Winona Ryder) new boyfriend, Bob (played by Sean Astin), also killed by a Demogorgon. In Season 3, Dr. Alexei (played by Alec Utgoff) died by gunshot. In Season 4, Chrissy died by Vecna's hand.
