Warning: This post contains spoilers for the third season of Stranger Things. Stop reading NOW (!!!) if you have not seen it yet.
- Robin appears in Stranger Things Season 3 as Steve Harrington's collaborator.
- Her character is crucial to the entire story of the season.
- And thematically achieved, which is otherwise difficult for Season 3 to achieve.
In Stranger Things character-driven third season, obsessed with seemingly shoe-less gender commentary and bizarre edge-character beats, there's also an introduction to Robin ̵
Robin is played by Maya Hawke, the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. But in Stranger Things 3 she steals the show and without any kind of parental shadow. Her character occurs in Stranger Things 3 on a serious – narrative and thematic – impudence.
How do we encounter Robin?
Although Robin's character has not yet been seen on screen, it is said to have always been around . She's the same year at Hawkins High as class swagger Steve "The Hair" Harrington (played by Joe Keery). Robin even sat behind Steve in her second history lesson. That was when Steve was a total idiot; he did not remember her.
Nevertheless, Robin says she was "obsessed" by Steve. As a self-styled "loser," she wanted what Steve had: popularity, acceptance, and above all, Tammy Thompson's attention. (Read more.)
Robin and Steve work together after graduating from Starcourt Mall Ice Cream Shop. Scoops Ahoy! We meet Robin here and spur on Steve as he meets female clients. The two maintain this faux-combative friendship until Dustin returns from the camp and tells Steve about his intercepted Russian espionage code. When Robin starts helping crack the code, Dustin mentions Steve how "great" she is. Steve comes slowly to see this incredible phenomenon over the course of the season and has a crush on her.
After the two have been captured and drugged by the Soviets and found an escape route (while they are vomiting), they share a difficult time of truth. Steve admits to really like Robin, and Robin admits he really likes Steve – but only as someone who considered him an "asshole".
It turned out that Robin's jealousy of Steve was partly due to the attention Tammy Thompson gave him. Robin had a crush on Tammy. Whether this is the first time Robin comes out to someone, we do not know. What we do know is that Steve takes the news like a champion – it takes a second to process it, then jokes along with Robin in her usual fun and contentious way – and the couple's friendship grows even stronger.
What is the meaning of Robin?
Strange Things  3 is indisputably about sexuality. When the original group of characters reaches puberty, they begin to meet and meet traditional men-are-from-Mars-women-are-blah blah themes. Writing becomes increasingly thematic, philosophically arrogant.
Robin is the only female character who allows the show to be just herself – without a half or all-romantic subplot or an open-script attempt to engage in gender politics. (Nancy Fights Against Chauvinist Newspaper Editors, Eleven and Max Read Wonder Woman seek empowerment and help beat the onlooker's subject of female friendship; Mrs. Wheeler avoids infidelity; Erica embraces traditional male nerdiness Joyce struggles with the toxicity that is Hopper, and each fights with the toxicity of the generation that is Billy.)
Robin feels as the only character who does not serve a strict thematic or self-conscious purpose ,
