Locke and Key: Season 2 was recently released on Netflix. The series follows the Locke siblings as they move to Massachusetts, with their mom after their father is murdered. Upon moving into their father’s childhood home, named Keyhouse, they discover magical keys that lead them to face a sinister being from their father’s past. In Locke and Key: Season 2, the Locke siblings have become accustomed to using the keys they possess and have even found more keys. They enjoy a carefree life after having beaten Dodge (Laysla De Oliveira). Unbeknownst to them, Dodge is very much alive, as seen in the season one finale when it is revealed that Dodge is also masquerading as Gabe (Griffin Gluck). Locke and Key: Season 2 does an incredible job of deconstructing the effects that the keys have on the siblings and everyone they care for. The connection between the Locke siblings undergoes major development throughout this season. While this season expands the story with back-story and more characters, it still remains as the Locke siblings’ story. While they still mourn their father’s death, their coming-of-age story continues with the challenges of growing up, family bonds, and carrying a legacy that they did not choose. The chemistry between the leads is much more developed, making their bond much more believable. The show suffers a bit from a lack of horror due to the new version of its main villain and the introduction of a new original character.
