Locke & Key Season 1 Episode 9 and Episode 10 Recap
In the previous episodes of Netflix’s Locke & Key, Sam broke into Keyhouse to get the Head Key for Dodge, who was actually Lucas. In Locke & Key Season 1 Episode 9, Ellie let Kinsey and Tyler into her head, and in Locke & Key Season 1 Episode 10, the Lockes standoff against Dodge and her shadows.
Inside Ellie’s Head
Kinsey confronted Ellie about Lucas. Bode had confirmed to her and Tyler that he’d seen him at her house. Ellie eventually decided to use the Head Key to show Kinsey and Tyler the truth while Rufus and Bode stayed behind. When they were teens, the Keepers of the Keys opened the door in the sea caves. What looked like glowing bullets shot out from the door and struck Lucas before they could close the door. He became possessed by a demon, killing Jeff and Kim. Rendell used a hammer to kill Lucas to save the rest of them, but Duncan saw. They removed and hid Duncan’s memories with the Tree Key.
Rendell, Mark, Erin, and Ellie dumped the bodies by the sea caves. They split up the keys among them. Mark hid the keys in the house and had killed himself with the Matchstick Key after Ellie called him about Rendell’s death. He didn’t want anyone getting inside his head to learn where the keys were.
Ellie used the echo key to bring back Lucas by whispering his name in the well. Unfortunately, she ended up bringing back the demon who possessed him before he died.
When Nina caught Ellie in Keyhouse, she was looking for the Crown of Shadows and the Shadow Key on Dodge’s orders. Ellie only found the crown and brought it to Lucas. Bode recognized the symbol on the crown and found the key. When Ellie went to retrieve the crown from her house, Dodge showed up and took the key and the crown. By inserting the key into the crown and wearing it, she could command shadows. Dodge used the shadows to invade Keyhouse to search for the Omega Key. Turning on the lights made the shadows go away. After a fight with a plastic lightsaber, they found Dodge knocked out on the floor.
Tyler and Kinsey called Jackie, Eden, Scot, and Gabe to help them move Dodge. Jackie, Eden, and Logan learned about the keys after Kinsey’s fear attacked Eden. They brought Dodge to the sea caves and threw her through the demonic door. Meanwhile, Bode rode his bike to the Whedons’. He called an ambulance when he found Rufus knocked out, but Ellie was nowhere to be found. Unfortunately, we learned that Dodge had used the Identity Key to make Ellie look like her. Meanwhile, Dodge used the Identity Key to be Gabe, as he’d also been Dodge all along. While they’d had the demonic door open, a glowing bullet struck Eden, and she was now possessed.
Nina and Det. Matuko went out for coffee. He’d recognized Nina’s sobriety slip when he’d checked on her. After talking, Nina felt like coming to Matheson was a mistake. She talked with the kids and Duncan about moving back to Seattle, but they all wanted to stay.
