SALT LAKE CITY — “Stranger Things 2” included a scene with a reference to Mormons.
In the show’s episode “Chapter Six: The Spy,” new character Maxine (Sadie Sink) goes outside to speak with Lucas Sinclair about all the drama unfolding.
When Max turns around, she meets her brother, the villanous Billy (Dacre Montgomery), who has been adamant about Max not hanging out with Lucas.
So Max uses “Mormons” as her excuse for talking with Lucas.
Watch the moment below. Warning: mild profanity.
“Stranger Things 2” debuted over the weekend on Netflix. All nine episodes of the show’s second season are available for streaming.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been referenced many times throughout the history of TV and sitcoms.
Shows such as "Golden Girls," "Friends" and "Gilmore Girls" all referenced the church's members in one way or another, according to the Deseret News.
