'And the other "wtf" moment is when the boys are in the woods looking for El and out of nowhere appear the two school bullies. What a coincidence! I guess it was normal to go for a walk in the forest back in the day. '

I think this was a reference to Stephen King's 'It' in which Henry Bowers' gang of bullies ambushes the Losers' Club in the Barrens, a tract of wooded wasteland, where the Club is trying to dam a stream. It wasn't a coincidence - the bullies followed them there in order to torment them, just as the mouth breathers presumably followed Dustin and Mike.
