Locke and Key: Keys to the Kingdom

Creepy Zack is Kinsey’s boyfriend?! When will she see the truth?

Thanks to the “animal key” Bode learns how (and why) to make friends. The alternating artwork is quite cute. The introduction of a different style to depict Bode’s POV is a very nice touch.

Ty is not so lucky in the relationship department.

Kinsey investigates, visits the mental ward/psychiatric hospital, murder ensues. I wonder whether Kinsey’s letting her friends Scott and Jamal in on the secret of the keys is such a smart move…probably not.

Kinsey breaks up with Zack, gets back together with Zack, breaks Scott’s heart and puts a strain on the friendship between Scott and Jamal. Tyler is making progress with that chick Jordan, Jordan breaks Tyler’s heart because she believes she’s not worthy of his affection. All very, very heartbreaking. A lot of jealous fighting follows.

More keys are found and “tested” to various degrees of success.

Dealings with racism.

Drunk mom is having a breakdown. Creepy.

The promise of death. Oh, Rufus, I’m so worried about you!

Oh, what a showdown, what an ending, what a cliff-hanger! I’m so excited! When is the next one coming out?!!
