In the days following the release of 'Stranger Things' season 2, an unlikely star has emerged.
The feather-locked teen everyone loved to hate in season 1 has become the dad we all wish we had in season 2.
Naturally, the internet can't handle it.
Steve's come a long way from his camera smashing days.
In the course of season 2's 9 episodes, Steve has fully transformed from obnoxious teen into protective father figure for the kids of Hawkins.
Leading some fans to draw another comparison....
Steve Harrington: Soccer Mom.
Even actor Joe Keery is getting in on the joke.
Keery took to Instagram to share behind-the-scenes photos of the kids and crew.
Although Steve Harrington might be Hawkins' new favorite Daddy, nothing quite beats his epic new bromance with Dustin.
From Keery's recent tweets, it appears this friendship extends beyond the screen as well.
Needless to say, we can't wait for more Steve Harrington in season 3.
