When it was found that Dustin Henderson has intercepted a secret Russian message, Robin Buckley helps the rest to translate the transmission, which leads to the discovery that there are some Russians in the Hawkins. These Russians were working underneath the Starcourt Mall.
With the help of Dustin, Steve, and Erica Sinclair, Robin would slowly start discovering that the Russians were working on a paranormal activity that works with a key opening a gate.
It was during this time that Robin developed a friendship with Steve Harrington, and then she takes the opportunity as she reveals her sexuality to him, which is considered a big step since Robin was the first person to open up about her homosexuality.
Robin then would go on to help the remaining friends of Dustin’s to fight against the Mind Flayer before the gate gets closed by Joyce Byers. Three months after this incident, Robin Buckley and Steve Harrington are still friends, and they continued their search for new jobs at Family video.
