Locke & Key - Echoes

"Echoes" offers answers to several of plot points hinted out throughout Locke & Key's First Season as it explores how various characters and events fit together such as the suicide that kicked off the series and just how Dodge (Laysla De Oliveira) came to be. We also get to view the past six months from the perspective of Ellie (Sherri Saum) which gives context to several of her actions and provides answers about the night Joe died. Thanks to Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) and Rufus (Coby Bird), Tyler (Connor Jessup) and Kinsey (Emilia Jones) have a clue to another key Echo wants to retrieve, although their plan to trap Dodge doesn't go quite as expected. Eden (Hallea Jones) being attacked by Kinsey's fear also brings her, Jackie (Genevieve Kang), and the others in on the keys and the bizarre happenings around town since the Lockes returned.

Lucas' backstory offers some information about Black Door and why the character is so obsessed with opening it back up. It also explains the extraordinary efforts others in their group took to prevent Lucas from ever getting his hands on the keys again. The introduction of the Echo Key provides another piece of the puzzle about Dodge and explains why the character was initially trapped in the well. The episode ends with Dodge triumphant, having paired the Shadow Key and the Crown of Shadows while the Lockes fight to stay alive and keep the Omega Key out of her possession. By the end of the episode all pieces are in place for the season finale which will offer a few more twists before all is said and done.
