Locke & Key Season 2 Review



Locke & Key season 2 was just released, and it’s a season that you don’t want to miss!

Locke & Key is a Netflix series that has lots of thrill and excitement, and is really enjoyable to watch.

The first season of the show was released on February 7th, 2020 and its second was released on October 22nd, 2021.

Locke & Key revolves around a group of teens fighting demons with magical keys. Locke and Key season 2 makes some big changes. The pace is faster, the tone is darker, and with that, it loses some of the magic that made the show so interesting in the first place.

In Season 1, the Locke family were living a happy life in Seattle when a man named Sam Lesser broke into their home and killed their father, Rendell Locke. His wife, Nina Locke, had struggled with alcoholism and recovered from being shot in the leg. However, son Tyler saw his father die in front of him, while his sister Kinsey and little brother Bode hid from Sam.

Still grieving, Nina decided to move the family to Rendell’s ancestral home in the small town of Matheson, a fictional town in Massachusettes. Rendell’s brother, Duncan, greeted the family, but he didn’t stick around.

The grandeur of Keyhouse distracted the children from their trauma for a little while, but they did reckon with their loss throughout the first season. While Nina was trying to renovate Keyhouse, she became friendly with Ellie Whedon, one of the last surviving connections to Rendell’s past.

Along the way, all three siblings, Tyler, Kinsey and Bode, made friends in Matheson and discovered something peculiar about their new home. Keyhouse is littered with magical keys, each with its own unique power. While the children explored each key’s power, they unwittingly unlocked a grave danger to the world. Bode accidentally awakened Dodge, a demon from another realm, who then began her own search for the Keyhouse keys.

When Season 2 picks up, the Lockesare living their best lives, having fun with the magical keys and generally being kids for the first time since their father died. Unbeknownst to them, though, they actually threw their gym teacher Ellie through the Black Door at the end of Season 1, in the form of Dodge. Meanwhile, Dodge is roaming free in the form of Gabe (Gabe is Kinsey’s Boyfriend), who has teamed up with another demon who infected Locke’s frenemy Eden.

On Rotten Tomatoes it scores an average Tomatometer of 77% and for an Average Audience score is 68%.
According to Suzanne Hadley, “I like Bode because he is a young, funny kid who is a good actor to watch at such a young age.”

Jackson Robert Scott also known as Bode is a young little kid who is given a ability to find keys around the house that can do certain things and he is the first one out of his family tho find them
On the contrary, Brenna Hadley argues, “I like Kinsey because she is a tough person and is smart who thinks of ways to defeat dodge.”

Emilia Jones also known as Kinsey is the person you would ask to help you with anything. She is a smart person who always thinks of a way to solve the problem.
If you want to watch a show with a lot of thrills and excitement then you should watch this show.
