Locke & Key has finally arrived on Netflix after over a decade in development.
Based on the critically acclaimed Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez comic book series, Locke & Key tells the story of Nina Locke, a new widow who moves her children across the country to her late husband’s family estate.
However, once they arrive, the youngest son Bode finds a magical key and accidentally unleashes a demon that he has to stop with his brother Tyler and sister Kinsey.
Tyler on Locke & Key
Tyler is the oldest son on Locke & Key, a high school hockey player from Seattle who is now trying to make it in the coastal town of Matheson, Massachusettes.
He is more popular than his younger sister but feels some guilt for the death of his father. Not only was Tyler unable to get into his house to save his dad’s life, but he also feels he was partially responsible for the murderer’s actions.
Tyler is able to meet other popular jocks and even finds a girl who falls for him, but his guilt and the mysteries of the keys of Key House makes it almost impossible for him to fit in.
While Tyler was important in the comics, he had an even larger role to play in the Netflix series as it took several of Bode’s moments and handed them off to his brother and sister.
