Locke and Key spoilers ahead!
After over a decade of anticipation, we finally have a live-action Locke and Key adaptation, and lo and behold, it’s streaming on Netflix right now. That’s right, Locke and Key is out now–you can watch all ten episodes this weekend, if you want to.
Granted, if you’re here reading this, you probably already have–and you want to know more about all the juicy Easter eggs and references Locke and Key Season 1 contains. The series is an adaptation of the comic books of the same name, created by writer Joe Hill and illustrator Gabriel Rodriguez. The show follows the Locke family as they move into their family’s ancestral home, Keyhouse, following a family tragedy, and discover magical keys that unlock powerful abilities. And besides all the references back to the comics, there are tons of Easter eggs for diehard fans of the series, and of horror in general.
The show’s first episode has by far the most Easter eggs of the whole series, and this page will focus on those. Be warned, though–this guide may cover only the first episode, but we’ll discuss events from throughout the series. Consider this your spoiler warning.
