[RECAP] The Umbrella Academy – What Happened in Season 2?

Here's a brief grasp of The Umbrella Academy season 2 before jumping into season 3.


Season 2 begins shortly after the events of season 1, in which the Hargreeves siblings fail to stop Viktor (Elliot Page) and cause an apocalypse with their long-buried powers. The Umbrella team decide to use Five (Aidan Gallagher) power (time travel) to escape the disaster. Unfortunately, Five has not yet fully mastered his power, causing the Hargreeves to be split at different drop points. 

What happened to the Hargreeves siblings? 

Luther (Number 1)

Luther (Tom Hopper) arrives in Dallas in 1962. He earns a living by working in an underground boxing ring for Jack Ruby (John Kapelos), the gangster destined to kill Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who assassinated JFK.

He then meets Viktor and learns that his family is still alive and living somewhere around Dallas. Luther asks Jack to find Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), but unfortunately, Allison is now married. Luther then meets Five and works with the rest of the Hargreeves to prevent the second apocalypse caused after their time jump.

Diego (Number 2)

Diego (David Castañeda) arrives in Dallas in September 1963. It’s no surprise that Diego is obsessed with being the man to stop JFK assassination. He meets Lila Pitts (Ritu Arya), a patient in a mental institution, and together they escape the camp. After escaping, the two meet Five.

Five immediately suspect Lila’s identity. It turns out that Lila was really put in a mental institution by The Handler (Kate Walsh), her adoptive mother. Despite this, Lila actually has feelings for Diego. She even drugs him and forces him to work for the Commission with her. Here, Diego figures out how to operate the infinite switchboard, a room where the Commission oversees the entire timeline.

He learns that Viktor will be the cause of the disaster in 1963 and works with his siblings to stop their brother from sparking another apocalypse.

Allison (Number 3)

Allison comes to Dallas in 1961 during the peak of the American Civil Rights Movement. She becomes a key member of the movement and marries Raymond Chestnut (Yusuf Gatewood), a popular, passionate leader.

Ray knows nothing of Allison’s life before she arrives in Dallas, nor of her powers of hypnosis. It was only when Luther and Klaus show up, introducing themselves as Allison’s brothers, that tensions began to increase between Allison and Ray. Number 3 then tells Ray the truth about her ability. Although he wants to go to 2019 with Allison, Ray then chooses to stay in 1963 because there is still a lot of work to be done.

Klaus (Number 4)

There Klaus meets Dave, who has been abused by his uncle. Klaus tries to convince Dave (Calem MacDonald) not to join army to not die in Vietnam.

Later, Klaus helps Diego and Allison to stop Viktor from blowing up the FBI building, but Ben (Justin H. Min) is unable to return with Viktor, which means that for the first time in 17 years, Klaus has to fight alone.

Five (Number 5)

Five was the last Hargreeve to arrive in Dallas, on November 25, 1963. He and other Umbrella fight the Russians before the nuclear explosion. However, amid the turbulent situation, Hazel (Cameron Britton) appears and takes Five back in time before the end of the world and explains that it was he and his siblings that caused the apocalypse by changing the timeline.

As usual, Five is tasked with tracking down his siblings and trying to explain that they need to reunite to save the world once again.

Ben (Number 6)

Ben arrives in Dallas with Klaus on February 11, 1960 and requires Klaus back to San Francisco, where one of Klaus’ devout followers, Jill, lives. Ben falls in love with Jill and convinces Klaus to temporarily let him take control of Klaus’ body so he can talk to Jill.

Ben is the only person who can overcome the shock wave created by Viktor’s power. Thanks to that, Ben gets into Viktor’s mind and comforts him, helping him deal with childhood trauma caused by their adoptive father. Ben then gradually disappears. His last words are to ask Viktor to hug him.

Viktor (Number 7)

Viktor arrives in Dallas in October 1963, a month after Diego. He is taken in by the drivers who hit him: a gem of a woman named Sissy (Marin Ireland) and her not-so-pleasant husband, Carl (Stephen Bogaert). Viktor temporarily loses his memory. He then becomes a nanny to Sissy and Carl’s son Harlan (Justin Paul Kelly), who has undiagnosed autism. During his stay, Viktor and Sissy fall in love with each other. 

Viktor saves Harlan from drowning by using his powers to transfer energy particles into the boy’s body, creating a connection between them and granting Harlan the same abilities as Viktor’s. After the battle at Sissy’s farm, Viktor and Sissy part ways in a heartbreaking goodbye. 

What Happened in the Finale of Season 2?

Viktor senses through his psychic connection with Harlan that something is not right. After initially turning down Viktor’s plea for help, the Umbrella team decides to arrive at Sissy’s farm, where they find Harlan petrified, levitating inside a force field he accidentally created. Of course, this is the perfect opportunity for The Handler and Lila to show up and according to The Handler, to murder the suspects responsible for killing JFK and the entire Board of Directors of the Commission.

Lila, who still hasn’t realized that The Handler was responsible for her parent’s death, kills Five on order. While confronting The Hargreeves siblings, Lila discovers that she is like them: another child born on October 1, 1989, endowed with supernatural abilities.

The Hargreeves try to convince Lila that they are her real family and that The Handler is just using her. However, all members of the Hargreeves family are then killed, except for Five – who is able to go back in time for a few seconds and reverse everything. Meanwhile, Lila takes the box and teleports out of the warehouse before the Hargreeves.

Viktor regains his power (or so he thinks). Umbrella team makes the jump back to 2019. They return to Umbrella Academy’s mansion on April 2, 2019, a day after the apocalypse. For a moment it seems like everything is finally back to normal but suddenly their dead father Reginald Hargreeves appears. Next to him is Ben (but not the Ben we used to know). This Ben has shaggy hair and a scar on his face. He looks at the Umbrella team with disdain and said, “Dad, who the hell are these assholes?”

So, what will happen next? Let’s watch Season 3 to have the answer!
