One of the best teen shows on Netflix, Locke and Key is undoubtedly one of the complete fantasy series as well. Since the cast and crew had shot Season 2 and Season 3 back-to-back, Season 3 was already complete when Locke and Key Season 2 became available on Netflix in October 2021. The third season of Locke and Key debuted on Netflix last Tuesday.

They entail one last trip with the Locke family before their story ends.

Although Tyler lives far from Key and his brothers’ home, he lives a fulfilling life. However, with the wedding taking place at the Key House, Tyler will soon be rejoining the family. With his inability to remember anything about magic and keys, the momentum when he returns also creates unsettling energy. A new threat lurks in the shadows as the Locke family tries to live a typical family experience. The main antagonist of this final season is Frederich Gideon (Kevin Durand), who appeared during Season 2 and briefly appeared in modern times in the closing moments. You want to collect all the keys. for his own evil ends, just like every other villain in this series.

The Keys’ powers were meant to be harnessed by Dodge (Laysla De Oliveira), but Gideon wants them for a different reason. When Gideon’s presence is discovered, the Locke family and a few allies race against time to stop Gideon from carrying out his grand plan. The episodes pick up speed and I find myself going through them at breakneck speed. Six episodes could easily be watched in one go, after using excellent cliffhangers in between. the need to find out what happened next and longed for another episode. But there is always more than one episode. The tension each character experienced throughout the season fueled that ambition. Although Gideon isn’t as scary as Dodge in previous seasons, he comes across as the better-informed enemy. At times it seemed like the kids were paired with Dodge as he seems to be constantly one step ahead of the Locke family. Several times throughout the season it seemed like the Locke family had found a solution, only Gideon let do it first. . One of the magical aspects of this season, to be experienced and not just read, is whether and how the Locke family manages to stop Gideon.

New Keys

While the ending wasn’t what I expected or anticipated for the family I’ve come to know and love, it certainly is the final chapter of the family. However, I think that this ending, because it’s so bittersweet, may cause controversy among fans of the series. Although I felt a growing sense of sadness long after reading it, the novel makes these people happy in many ways.

Also, the final season seemed a bit keyless for a show about magic key’s purpose seemed more to hide the keys from us than to use them to save the day,  though they were still vital to the larger storyline. My hopes for how successfully the keys could be used might have been dashed by the suspenseful climax of season two, but some of the charms seemed to be missing. However, certain new keys are crucial to a significant emotional portion of this final season, leading to some of Locke and Key’s best moments.

As the season progresses, emotional situations often arise suddenly and without warning. While this season of the show just wasn’t as great as the previous two seasons of the show, overall, I’m thrilled that I got to see the end of this amazing show. It took more magic, time with the Locke kids, and Uncle Duncan than the two cameos I got. The show still had a lot of heart and made me cry, but it also left me wanting more in the final scenes. I feel happy after seeing the ending, the series ends with a roller coaster of emotions, I would definitely recommend watching one.
