Locke & Key - The Snow Globe

The show picks up for its final season with the Lockes having an uneventful few months since the end of Dodge (Griffin Gluck). Meanwhile, Captain Frederick Gideon (Kevin Durand) continues to search for the door to no avail. He gets some momentary assistance when Nina (Darby Stanchfield) and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) find a snow globe and matching key which accidentally unleashes two demons (Diana Bentley and Susanna Fournier) determined to help the Captain. The snow globe, basically allowing someone to enter a snowy version of the reality of Key House when the key is inserted, is another fun addition to the show's oddities (as is the animal key shown earlier in the episode). Although Bode gets trapped in the globe for much of the episode, Nina and Kinsey (Emilia Jones) are able to defeat the demons trapping them in the mirror.

Notable moments of the episode include Tyler (Connor Jessup) not willing to return home and the introduction of Oriana Leman as a potential new love interest for him, the snow globe and key, the confirmation of Eden's death, the demon sisters making allusions to several other keys which may or may not make an appearance before the show's finale, Kinsey continuing making movies with the Savini Squad, and the return of Ellie (Sherri Saum) and Rufus (Coby Bird) to Matheson. While the Lockes are still not aware of Gideon's arrival, it seems likely that he will remain the major threat of the season.
