Fans Go Wild Over 'Stranger Things' Cast Members' Reunion Selfie
'Stranger Things' viewers still aren't over this unlikely duo.
Fans of Netflix's Stranger Things haven't forgotten about what could have been between Grace Van Dien and Joseph Quinn in the show's latest season, and now the actors are giving viewers some more highly-requested content together.
Van Dien, the 25-year-old actress who plays cheer queen Chrissy Cunningham on Season 4 of Stranger Things, practically broke the internet after sharing a selfie with Quinn, 29, who stole fans' hearts while playing the beloved role of Eddie Munson.
"Hellcheer says hi from our lunch break," Van Dien wrote alongside the selfie on Twitter, seemingly using the word "hellcheer" in reference to her character's role as head cheerleader mixed with Eddie's Hellfire Club, which he leads along with other Dungeons & Dragons fanatics at Hawkins High.
"I'm crying OMG so cute," one user wrote in response to the selfie—which has 13K retweets and over 185K likes on Twitter—while someone else commented on the pair's "amazing chemistry" that made Season 4 so "powerful."
The photo was most likely taken while the actors attended Fan Expo Canada last week, where Finn Wolfhard, who plays the fan-favorite character of Mike Wheeler, also made an appearance.

During the show's latest season, Chrissy, known to the fandom as the "queen of Hawkins high" turned to Eddie, "the freak," for drugs to help with headaches and migraines, when the two characters end up forming an unlikely—and brief—bond.
Fans were disappointed to see that their friendship didn't go far, as Chrissy soon became the first victim of the season's villain, Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower).
Later in the season, Eddie went out a hero after his iconic scene in the Upside Down, where he played a rendition of Metallica's "Master of Puppets," which he dedicated to his late friend.
"Chrissy, this is for you," he said at the start of his guitar performance, which Quinn called "the most metal concert in the history of the world," according to Huffington Post.
Despite their unfortunate fates, die-hard fans are still hung up on Chrissy and Eddie's unfinished story. In July, Van Dien shared some "hellcheer" fan art via Twitter, which showed the unlikely pair with a different ending.
"In another universe," Van Dien wrote next to the image, which depicted the two characters alive and graduating together.
Quinn previously addressed if he thought Eddie ever had a chance with Chrissy, who was dating Jason Carver (Mason Dye), if it weren't for both of their lives getting cut short by the end of the season. "Eddie would have to step on Jason's shoes pretty intensely," Quinn told Netflix's Tudum back in June, adding, "It would be lovely if there was a world in which [they could] be a pretty uncouth couple at Hawkins High that I think might shake things up a little bit."
What a lovely Hawkins that would have been, indeed.
