'Locke and Key' season 2 has arrived and the keys seem to have snapped in the lock. Get ready to face Dodge once again as we dive into the new season. 

Did ‘Locke and Key’ season 2 jump the shark already?

Locke and Key season 2 has arrived and the keys seem to have snapped in the lock. The new season of the Netflix series seems to be going at a breakneck pace in order to pack in as much plot as possible. 

This results in Locke and Key season 2 feeling rushed, with many story threads left to dangle and many characters left underdeveloped in comparison to last season. In short, Locke and Key season 2 needs a locksmith, ASAP. 

Naturally, many on Twitter had quite a few comments on Locke and Key season 2. We unlocked the threads for more information and the best reactions to Locke and Key season 2. Get ready to face Dodge once again as we dive into Locke and Key season 2. 


Since it’s been a while since season 1 first dropped, let’s recap some of what happened when we last left the Locke family. The kids, Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode, find out that their new house is full of magical keys. Keys that their father and his friends once used to battle against the forces of darkness waiting on the other side of the Omega Door. 

Between trying to stop the terrifying Dodge from opening the door, the kids use the keys in ways that unlock a lot of their inner thoughts and feelings (sometimes literally). These moments allowed the audience to really give the show a solid backbone as we got to know the characters on a more personal level. 

By the end of the season, Dodge has been locked up and all is well . . . except Dodge is actually still roaming around looking like the kids’ new friend Gabriel, meaning that the kids may have to face off against her once more before it’s too late. This seems like a pretty solid place to leave off the show and a great set up for season 2, so what happened?

Keys didn’t work 

The biggest issue with the new season is how rushed the whole thing feels. While the show keeps its dark tone and does give us some fun flashbacks on the history of the keys, the show tries to cram so much into the season at once, leaving little to be developed. 

The keys themselves also play a role as to why the season falls flat. While the previous seasons’ keys allowed for moments of development and thought outside the box when it came to powers, these new ones play it safe with generic superhero powers. Super strength, a key whip, etc. are all cool, but don’t give us those same moments of closeness the others facilitated. 

Lastly, Gabriel as Dodge gives off a different feel than season 1 Dodge. Dodge in season 1 was a terrifying, alien force of nature. Beautifully dressed but horrifyingly deadly, she gave audiences a chill down their spines. Gabriel’s version, in comparison, is just a jerk of a teenage boy you can see in any high school drama film. This new season had the potential to be great, but with all of these issues, this season left fans locked out. 

Twitter can’t find the key 

Of course, many of those fans took to Twitter to discuss their disappointment as well as lament how the gap between seasons has caused many to forget the storyline altogether. Reactions include: 

Definitely time to re-binge the first season . . . . 

It really is just missing so much . . . . 

Your guess is as good as ours.

  • Too many inconsistencies and lack of continuity in L&K2.
    1) how did the omega door open without the omega key?
    2) why did the omega portal door open and let Ellie out?
    3) why was Ellie crushed under stone in the caves?
    4) where did the amazing cliff edge house come from that Gabb used as his base?
    5) why did the history teacher not show much interest in the model of key house once he had a key?
    6) Does Edin ever hand in any of her schoolwork?……… she is a bad student!
    7) Why are none of the heroes in the story ever in awe of all the magic they discover?
    8) Why in films and TV do people cut their palms with a large knife when adding blood to a spell? Why not just prick your finger gently, or pick a scab, or perhaps even brush your teeth and spit your gum blood into the mixture?

    Too many issues to list

  • Dodge was the best character in the whole show.

    Season 1 was incredible: twists, turns, keys, mystery, suspense, edge of your seat… Season 2 is just teen drama and high school love affairs… What an absolute disappointment…
