Earl was at Benny's Burgers with a group of friends, including Henry, when a child entered during lunch and stole a portion of fries. The following day, Benny was found dead in the diner and Earl was brought in for questioning. Earl was baffled by Benny's apparent suicide, telling Chief Hopper that it "don't make any sense". Earl said Benny had been acting as usual, and that he was looking forward to going fishing with him down the Etowah next Sunday. He also told Hopper about the kid from the previous day, who Earl assumed was a boy due to her shaved head. Hopper wondered if the kid may have been the missing Will Byers. He repeatedly questioned Earl about whether there was any possibility of the kid being Will, to which Earl gave uncertain answers.
