The Biggest Problems With Locke & Key Season 2 According To Fans

Mild spoilers for "Locke & Key" Season 2 follow

Netflix's fantasy horror drama "Locke & Key" ended its second season with a bang. Going into Season 3, the show now has a brand new villain in Kevin Durand's monstrous Captain Frederick Gideon, and while the Locke family and their allies have proved their worth over and over again, the playing field seems more stacked against them than ever. 

Lots of things happen to lots of characters over the course of the season's 10 episodes, and their arcs range from uplifting to outright depressing. Combine this with the cool action and the many and storied powers granted by the show's assorted magical keys, and it's easy to think that the show has truly covered all of its bases. Despite this, some viewers appear to be quite unhappy about the new season. Let's take a look at the biggest problems with "Locke & Key" Season 2, according to fans.

Fan's aren't happy with the writing of Locke & Key Season 2

Some fans feel that the writing of "Locke & Key" Season 2 isn't up to the standards the first season set, and have been airing their grievances on Reddit. "The plot of this season was just filled with holes from beginning to end. Nothing made sense. I found it disappointing," one redditor wrote, and rattled off a number of examples of perceived plot holes. "Why don't they ask their great Grandfather using the ghost key when they find a new key? Instead of a whole scene trying to find its purpose. How does Josh [Brendan Hines] look at the dollhouse lit up and not care? He finds the key and just puts it in his pocket? Why didn't Lucas [Felix Mallard] tell everyone that Eden [Hallea Jones] has the key to the well house? He should've remembered that. They just let her go to the well house so they can make a third season?" They also criticize the underwhelming roles of Dodge (Laysla De Oliveira and Griffin Gluck) and Nina Locke (Darby Stanchfield) over the course of the season.

Other viewers expressed similar sentiments, criticizing the characters' dialogue and reactions, as well as the way the various powers granted by keys and gadgets are portrayed. "This show is written like they have an ending in mind at the beginning, but they forget, then as they are writing the plot, they keep randomly remembering that they wanted to end it in a certain way, so they just force the characters to behave in the least intelligent way possible to get there," one redditor wrote. Then again, other fans seemed perfectly happy with these perceived plot holes, and even provided explanations for them in the discussion thread.
