Susan Hargrove, previously known as Susan Mayfield, is a recurring character in the second season of Stranger Things. She is wife to Neil Hargrove, the biological mother of Max and the stepmother of Billy.
At some point, Susan divorced her previous husband and married Neil Hargrove despite his abusive nature, moving from California to Hawkins, Indiana in 1984.
Susan kindly asked Billy to find Max, and tried to intervene and tell Neil it was okay when Neil threatened his son into doing so.
On December 15, she helped Max with her hair before the Snow Ball.
Susan is a kind, but timid housewife. She genuinely cares for her daughter and stepson. She seems to have qualms with Neil's abusive parenting methods, shown by her trying to tell him it’s okay after he slaps Billy and forces him to apologize for being disrespectful.
