Netflix’s Fear Street: Part Three – 1666 sees the Shadyside teens overcoming a centuries-spanning curse. However, their ultimate win against the forces of evil — and, let’s be real, the patriarchy — wouldn’t have been possible without one essential character: Nurse Lane.

Known as Ziggy’s only friend at Camp Nightwing, Ziggy is shown to us as someone who is either always hurt at camp while looking for trouble or, more likely, looks for an excuse to spend more time with Lane.
