Of all Luke’s children, lock and key Arguably the second season, Kinsey Luke (Emilia Jones) is going through its biggest development. By the end of the season – and Spoilers after this point – Kinsey has basically saved everyone, using multiple magic keys and taking on the evil Dodge (Laysla de Oliveira) herself.
“It was very important for us to show how much Kinsey has evolved from this fearful, anxious girl we met on the pilot,” show co-host Meredith Avril told Decider. “This girl who, when her family was attacked, was paralyzed under the table, to show just how much she has grown and confident in her ability to take on Dodge at that end.”
In season one, as Avril describes, Kinsey is shown shivering in fear while her father Rendell (Bill Heck) is shot and killed by an intruder. Although a lot of season one was about Kinsey coming to the understanding that just because she was in hiding doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing, it eventually led to her literally getting rid of her fear by getting her out of her head and burying her in it. Backyard.
In Season 2, Kinsey’s lively representation of fear is taken up by villains Gabby (Griffin Gluck) and Eden (Halia Jones), before Kinsey decides that she’s only living half her life — or at least half her feelings. Thanks to advice from her brother Buddy (Jackson Robert Scott), she is able to summon her fear and reinsert it into her head.
It’s the new and complete Kinsey that takes the Angel Key that enables the wing, the Crown of Shadows that controls the shadows, and the super power that grants Hercules the Key, and basically turns into a superhero at the end. But before all this revelation, Kinsey confronts Gabe, her ex-boyfriend who has been secretly the demon who has been taunting and torturing Luke for the past few seasons.
Gabe gave Kinsey an ultimatum: Join him as a demon, or her mother will die. Part distraction, part declaration of independence, Kinsey stands up to Gabe and rejects him, his offer, and the idea that he would be able to kill her mother, because Kinsey would never let him. She was no longer afraid of him because she embraced her fear.
“This is a wonderful moment when you are standing on the balcony, telling Gabe that she will never join him, and what she will do next,” Avril continued. “It’s a massive arc for her that we can see, as she evolved into it in that moment.”
Now that we’ve got Kinsey 2.0, we’ll have to see where this development continues in Season 3.
