The Hawkins Post writer Bruce is the actual worst. In life, he's a misogynistic jerk who enjoys taunting Nancy and dismissing her ideas on the grounds that she's a woman. He's not much better in death, either. Bruce becomes one of the Flayed and stalks Nancy through the hallways of the Hawkins hospital. She smashes him over the head with a fire extinguisher before he can infect her, and his body dissolves to join the rest of the Flayed.
