Whilst 'Stranger Things' is a show very much about the strange world in which its fan-favourite characters live in, the Netflix original series also allows an underlying commentary on what friendship is all about, as well as relationships shared between those who love one another and the potential for those relationships to develop into something more in the future. That was never more apparent than in the second season's final episode, where a number of couplings looked to lay the foundations for the future.

Jim Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) are one of those couplings, and though the two didn't make any official romantic connection in the season's last moments, there has been a chemistry between the pair for some time now. They rely on each other in their darkest moments and, following the traumatic and life-changing events of season 1, they realise that they'll have each other in one another's lives forever.

With that realisation comes the demands from viewers who want to see the pair enter into an official relationship, but that's not something actor David Harbour thinks is a definite for the future, despite all of the signs.

Speaking with Variety, the actor first said: "These are two lost, broken people who need each other but are so prideful and messed up that they’ll never admit it. It’s great to allow that to play out over several seasons."

He then continued: "I don’t know that ultimately they’re quite right for each other. Talk about problems! If Eleven is difficult, imagine him and Joyce. There would be nightmare fights! Him being prideful and emotionally shut down and unavailable. But I do think he feels something for her... It’s a special connection. I think that’s something that’s very deep between them. We’ll have to see where that goes in future seasons. But I root for some happiness for Joyce and Hopper. If they can find that together, that would be great. But we’ll see."

Though they've each got their problems and they may not go together perfectly, the thirst for a Jim and Joyce relationship isn't something that's going to go away. Whether or not The Duffer Brothers (co-writers) have a happy ending for the two in mind however remains to be seen. We know they've already planned the finish to their series, so it's going to be very interesting to see just how Jim and Joyce factor into that.
