What happened to Steve at the end of Stranger Things season 1?

While Steve made a few enemies throughout season 1, he managed to redeem himself – at least in Nancy’s eyes – by showing up at the Byers’ household for the final showdown with the Demogorgon and helping to fend off the beast. He also made things right with Jonathan, replacing the camera that he had smashed earlier in the season.
