Two seasons later, Will and El are living in California when Mike comes to visit for spring break. When they decide to hang out at a roller rink, El gets tormented by some school bullies. One particularly evil teen films the whole ordeal. On the recording, the date reads “March 22.” And yet, no one takes the time to wish poor Will a happy birthday or offer him a Demogorgon-themed cake (okay, that might be a little insensitive, considering). Everyone politely ignoring his birthday is made even sadder by the fact that Will spends the day feeling like a third wheel to El and Mike.
