The Duet

One of the season's biggest surprises may have been the NeverendingStory duet between Dustin and Susie. Fans of the show were quick to make a meme of the moment, which added a childlike relationship factor to a more-than-serious situation.

Alexi and Hopper

A handful of memes also focused on the relationship between Alexi and Hopper, which was frustrating and funny all at once. Viewers seemed to latch on to Alexi as a wholesome character, and mourned his loss, along with Hopper's final fate.

Some of the memes joked about the pair's back and forth on the cherry slurpee Alexi wanted.
