So are Lockwood's intentions pure?
It seems that way. (And especially yes compared to Eli.) That said, the answer to this question also depends on where you stand on the whole matter of whether bringing dinosaurs into this world is, you know, inherently evil. (Where do you rank on the Ian Malcolm scale of ethics?) But, yeah, besides that, he doesn't seem to have any truly nefarious ideas. Still, he has definitely played god in a way he maybe probably shouldn't have. Which brings us to...
His family lineage is a little, well, odd
One of the people running around the makeshift museum on his compound is his granddaughter, a curious girl named Maisie (Isabella Sermon). From the beginning it's obvious there's something a little uncanny about her. She speaks in a British accent most of the time, but when she slips into an American one, she's chastised. So, like, where is she from? And who, exactly, is her mother, who Lockwood mourns? All the while, you're waiting for a reveal that the elder Lockwood woman is maybe someone we have met before. (Whither Laura Dern? Julianne Moore?) And then -- here's where the big, T. rex-sized spoilers come into play -- we learn that her mom isn't technically her mom because Maisie is actually a clone. Seems that Lockwood got a little ambitious with his ability to replicate DNA and didn't limit his experiments to ancient animals. Maisie, of course, is an innocent in all of this, but considering that humans in these films keep acting on their incredibly bad ideas when it comes to genetics, Lockwood's decision could portend more horrors when the next installment comes along.
