What’s new with Dustin aka Toothless in Stranger Things 2? We’ve heard rumors Dustin might have a new pet and a possible love interest this season.

Must Read: Stranger Things 2 news

Dustin “Toothless” Henderson is one of the fan favorites from Stranger Things, and we are expecting more of the same in Stranger Things 2. He delivered some of the great lines from the first batch of episodes, including “She’s our friend, and she’s crazy!” and more.

Stranger Things 2 will be an interesting journey for Dustin. While Mike deals with the loss of Eleven and Will battles the trauma from the Upside Down, Dustin will also be forced to confront his entire world changing like the rest of the Hawkins Heroes. 

According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, Dustin also acquires a pet of sorts that’s maybe not from Earth or this dimension. We don’t know what it is or how it will affect Dustin, but I would assume Dustin to be an accessory to the major scary plots and he’ll also get some shine of his own when it comes to the pet. 

In my head, I’m picturing some supernatural Gremlins-type creature. I believe the creature in Gremlins was called a Mogwai, but hopefully, this creature will not go full-Gremlins in Stranger Things 2, if you know what I mean.

We have also learned Dustin might have a potential love interest in Max, a new girl in Hawkins who also happens to be awesome at arcade games. Max has an evil stepbrother Billy, and if Dustin is crushing on Max, he might have to answer to Billy’s bullying in this new batch of episodes. 

That’s about all we know and can predict about Dustin’s journey in Stranger Things 2. We’ll find out more on Friday, Oct. 27!
