Lockwood & Co., the latest compelling supernatural thriller on Netflix, comes to a very alluring cliffhanger. No, I’m not referring to the mystery surrounding the Bone Glass or even what Luke Treadaway, The Golden Blade, is up to with Penelope Fittes (Morven Christie).
Lockwood & Co., no. Season 1 closes just as Anthony Lockwood (Cameron Chapman) is about to unveil what he’s been keeping hidden behind the enigmatic door upstairs. What’s therefore therein? And now that I think about it, how precisely did George (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) and Lucy (Ruby Stokes) escape the dangers of Bickerstaff’s Bone Glass?
Based on the bestselling Young Adult novels by British author Jonathan Stroud, Joe Cornish, writer, director, and cult favorite of the genre, created Lockwood & Co. The drama is set in a version of London where lethal spirits have taken over the city for over 50 years. In the following decades, paranormal studies increased while technological advancement mostly stagnated.
Marissa Fittes (Amanda Abbingdon), a renowned pioneer in ghost hunting, figured out how to categorize these ghosts and best combat them. Unsurprisingly, some young people have the capacity to “see” or “hear” ghosts. Since it is a “skill” that lasts until early adulthood, teens are the world’s first line of defense against ghouls that can instantly kill with a touch.
An incredibly gifted “listener,” Lucy Carlyle flees from her small agency in a Northern English town after being falsely accused of carrying out a mission that went wrong. She is abruptly compelled to join Lockwood & Co., a rather peculiar ghost-hunting business.
The fledgling organization is led by aristocratic but gifted teen orphan Anthony Lockwood and supported by the scholarly work of another tenacious kid named George. The trio quickly accepts many risky cases to chase wealth, independence, and, in Lockwood’s case, glory.
But what transpires after Lockwood & Co. Who murdered Annabel Ward (Ishtar Apsara Currie-ghost Wilson’s body; Jemma Moore’s voice)? Did Pamela Joplin (Louise Brealey) organize the Bone Glass’s discovery and theft? And what exactly lies behind Lockwood’s family home’s barred door? Here is how Lockwood & Co. ends.
Lockwood and Co Ending Explained
In the second half of the first season of Lockwood & Co., the group faces off against a Fittes rival squad to find the “Bone Glass,” a stolen artifact. After unintentionally catching sight of it, George becomes fixated or “mesmerized” by the Bone Glass mirror.
The team concluded that Edmund Bickerstaff, a Victorian magician, had constructed the Bone Glass through a series of evil rituals throughout several dangerous missions. Mary Dulac, a woman employed by Bickerstaff and his cult to peer into “eternity” through the glass, eventually killed Bickerstaff.
She writes about the experience’s impact on her in her diary and how she interred Bickerstaff with the Bone Glass in the iron casket that the squad was initially tasked with securing in Episode 4.
George develops a stronger relationship with Pamela Joplin, the cemetery’s chief researcher, while Lockwood and Lucy risk their lives by breaking into the Fittes library and a Black Market auction. As it turned out, Ms. Joplin had been controlling everything. She hired relic guys to take the iron coffin after organizing for it to be excavated.
She murders Carver after he betrays her by selling it to Winkman, the ruler of the black market (Ben Crompton). The Golden Blade tries to buy the Bone Glass at an auction, where Lockwood and Lucy succeed in stealing it—apparently for Penelope Fittes and the unidentified harp group, as we later learn.
Upset with Lockwood and Lucy, George brings the Bone Glass to Ms. Joplin instead of the authorities as planned. She then takes him to a ceremony in the graveyard where she hatches a scheme to employ George and his “gift” to see through the Bone Glass mirror. The Whispering Skull, a Type Three ghost and former acolyte of Bickerstaff, helps Lucy locate them.
He is the head in the glass. Invoking herself as a more “skilled” seer, Lucy arrives just in time to save George. But Lucy looks through the Bone Glass with the Whispering Skull. Even the ghost is disturbed by what he sees. He warns Lucy that something is wrong and that the Bone Glass is a trap that captures souls rather than a gateway to the eternal.
To save Lucy, George breaks the Bone Glass. Ms. Joplin visits the broken Bone Glass and is obliterated by what she discovers there. Lockwood & Co. band up with the Fittes squad to save the day, repel the relic men, and aid in the capture of Winkman while this is happening. The Golden Blade shows up and shoots Lockwood, but not before claiming that Lockwood’s parents’ passing was “insignificant,” implying that they did so due to a “harp” organization-related secret.
Ultimately, Lockwood & Co. save the day after DEPRAC takes the Bone Glass in to be burned, and Penelope Fittes tells the Golden Blade that the Bone Glass should be destroyed in the hands of the unaware public.

Who Killed Annabel Ward in Netflix’s Lockwood & Co.?
When Lucy first joins Lockwood & Co., what mystery does she have to solve first? Annabel Ward, a budding talent, was brutally murdered. After finding Annabel’s body brutally “bricked” under a chimney, Lucy and Lockwood wonder if they can catch her killer. While Lockwood views the potential tabloid story as an opportunity to raise the agency’s profile, Lucy has a unique emotional connection to Annabel’s vengeful ghost.
Although the gang initially believes that Annabel’s lover and co-star Hugo Blake committed her death, they eventually conclude that Sir John Fairfax, a prominent man, was Annabel’s killer (Nigel Planer).
Sir John Fairfax instructed a worker to break into Lockwood & Co. to find Annabel’s “source,” which is the engraved ring he gave her after Lockwood gave a splashy TV interview about their inquiry. In addition to being able to call up Annabel’s ghost, the ring’s engraving would lead to a paper trail that would implicate Fairfax.

The group doesn’t realize this until they nearly perish while working for an aristocrat. They initially believed that selling his haunted rural property, Combe Carey Hall would help them with their financial issues. Once they arrive, it becomes apparent that it is a trap. The teenagers will be killed by Sir John Fairfax when they run into him while trying to flee.
Lucy cunningly poses as giving Annabel’s source away while releasing her. Annabel’s spirit kills Fairfax, and DEPRAC conceals the incident (aka the Department of Psychical Research and Control). Nevertheless, Lucy, Lockwood, and George catch a glimpse of an enigmatic harp sign that DEPRAC is trying to hide. An additional symbol appears during the search for the Bone Glass.
