The Ending Of Umbrella Academy Season 2 Explained

The second season of The Umbrella Academy follows the Hargreeves siblings as they navigate an unfamiliar decade fraught with challenges. It's a lot to keep track of, and if you reached the end of season two a little fuzzy on some of the details, we're here to help.

Lila is introduced as a fellow patient at the mental hospital where Diego is sent after he attempts to kill Lee Harvey Oswald and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. After helping Diego escape and earning his trust, we learn that she is actually a time traveler herself. We also learn that her mother is the Handler, who adopted her after the Commission killed her parents in 1993.

Her backstory gets even more complicated than that, though. It turns out that the Handler ordered the murders of Lila's parents because she knew about Lila's special abilities. Lila was born on October 1, 1989, just like all of the Hargreeves siblings, as the result of one of the 43 mysterious pregnancies and births that we learned about at the beginning of the series. Hargreeves adopted seven of the babies, but the other 36 remained a mystery... until Lila. Like the Hargreeves siblings, Lila has her own unique powers; she can mimic anyone else's power, turning their own abilities back on them like a weaponized mirror -- which explains why the Handler wanted to claim her as her own.

When the Hargreeves clan arrive in the 1960s, they all assume the world was safe until 2019, when Vanya would blow up the moon and annihilate all life on Earth. However, when Five arrives in Dallas in 1963, he witnesses the last moments of his siblings' final stand against a Soviet invasion before an arsenal of nuclear missiles wipes them all out. Obviously, this was a different version of 1963 than the one in our history books, which leads Five to conclude that his siblings had somehow caused the apocalypse.

Over the ten days leading up to November 25, 1963, Five and the other Hargreeves siblings desperately attempt to piece together the events leading to doomsday. Eventually, it's Diego who uncovers the event that leads to nuclear war -- an explosion at the FBI building in Dallas, which is blamed on the USSR. The U.S. then attacks Soviet-backed Cuba, leading the USSR to bomb Anchorage, Alaska, which leads to all-out war. Keep watching the video to see the ending of Umbrella Academy season 2 explained.

I've got a feeling Harlan will play a major role in Season 3. Seeing that they've all time traveled into the future, Harlan will probably be the same/similar age as the group and he would have the added advantage of training/waiting for them to "meet him in the future"

Pretty shocked with #5's inability to see how the group's actions would affect the timeline; given his age and all. I mean, affecting the civil rights movement, killing Harlan's father, starting a cult and talking to a past version of yourself....? the future they remember is LONGGG gone, lol.

They also exposed the space-time headquarters to at least 2 people ...DUDE...but I am glad to see Ben back :)

Okay but did anyone else notice that the toy bird Harlan has is a sparrow (I think) I think it may have something to do with the whole Sparrow Academy thing.

No one gonna talk about Sir Reginald Hargreeves taking off his literal face, and eating the Majestic 12.
Gavin Allen
Gavin Allen:
Everyone who is wondering on the characters’ powers, don’t speculate and google it on wikia. I also think Hargreeves is immortal/long lived with his non-human physiology. Because, his old aged look and the extra 59 years from 1960-2019 would make a normal man of his age in a wheelchair. Being over 100+ years old. I also definitely think the Sparrow Academy is related to Harlan and his floating sparrow toy towards the end. Hargreeves has more knowledge and next season is gonna have some cool super powered fights!

I really wish they’d bring Ben back to life. They always do him dirty even when he saved the world
Grace Avveduto
Grace Avveduto:
My theory on the sparrow academy: when the siblings met Reginald in 1963, he realized that they didn’t stop the apocalypse, and everything he had trained them to do had failed. So in 1989 he adopted different children, hoping they were worthy enough to stop it. He still adopted Ben because he didn’t realize he was one of the originals from the Umbrella Academy. I also think this has something to do with Harlan. Maybe Harlan became famous for his powers and inspired Reginald to start the academy, naming it sparrow after the toy bird Harlan levitated at the end.

karolina285
karolina285:
Question: they came back to 2019 and learned that Hargreaves adopted different kids. Doe's that mean that there's now two versions of them in 2019? For example, if Reginald didn't adopt them does that mean another Luther is somewhere in the world with normal body (if Hargreaves didn't adopt him,the accident never happened so Luther should have his normal body).

Watched it all in one day lol. It was amazing and I was literally googling what had happened to all the other kids from the births before the season came out so glad to see them! I hope the Hargreaves stick together tho and don’t split up again. They had such good development. Also question shouldn’t they not exist if he didn’t adopt the originals

The only reason why they’re still alive is because of Hazel.

Zain Jessani
Zain Jessani:
What if the members of the Sparrow academy are alternate versions of the current Umbrella academy? Since good old Reggie's alive and Grace and Pogo aren't there, he could have adopted the same kids in this timeline. Maybe Luther without the ape serum, Diego without a tendency for homicide, Allison who doesn't worry about the effects of her rumor, Klaus who wouldn't be high as hell and better control over the ghosts (Not like how he was last season), A younger (who wouldn't be 58 mentally) Five with an actual name, Emo Ben and Vanya who didn't have her powers supressed by Reginald.

Why did anyone notice that there 6 siblings (with Ben). Where's the last one?
And Five must be adult because little Five told to old Five about mistake.

What if Reginald was training them all for an alien invasion? He's an alien, interested in the moon, etc.

What I want in season 3:
I hope the first 3 episodes focus on the sparrow academy and fixing the timeline back to normal.

After that I really want them to focus on the other 35 people with super powers.

What if the organization kidnapped more super humans and experiment on them, making them freaks of nature, mutants to kill the Umbrella academy. Then the Umbrella academy would be forced to ask help from the other supers.

I was really disappointed in how Klaus treat Ben this season tbh. And I really wish that everyone had known that he was there. And his death too. I wish there had been more of an impact with that... idk like some grief or an acknowledgement of his moving on.
Retro 8821
Retro 8821:
Hargreaves, in late season 1, released golden wisps into the air, and they looked so similar to what Vanya breathes into Harlan. I wonder what that means.

This was such a great season. Way better than the 1st season. I hope we gonna see more of Lila and her cool powers.

The last couples of episodes were so sad, suspensive, amazing and confusing and im happy that the end teased i season 3 probably the best netflix original i have watched
sam torpey
sam torpey:
I think the reason Reginald got Sparrow Academy together is because he met umbrella Academy and was disappointed in them but never met Ben ( because he was a ghost ) that’s why he is in

Maybe something happened in the timelines caused everything in the original to change like how Ben is alive or how it’s sparrow academy, I think marlin was behind it because has powers beforethe og members were even born so he was like the brains behind the new academy idk something like but this is my 3rd theory

Season 1 was a 8/10
Season 2 was a 5/10
This is of course my own opinion I was hoping Patch would be saved through time travel and I really missed Hazel I also wanted a better backstory for Ben and a possible way to bring him back to life as well and we sort of got him back but in the wrong plot twist kinda of way.
Captain Clutch
Captain Clutch:
how come when 5 kicks his younger(older looking) version back he doesnt change back into an old person? since he would now be looking like the old person going back to the first season wouldnt it also be that version of him jumping them back in time to 1963 at the end of season 1 still looking old since he got the calculations for the jump correctly this time?

I think the change to the sparrow academy was the result of Diego scaring away real mom and turning her against their dad.

Season 2 is fantastic but they've now created so many paradoxes. I really hope they address it in season 3 or I'll be really disappointed.
Currently, I have no issues with the events that took place, I think it was really well done. However, where the season 1 finale made me excited for the next season, this one made me anxious because I see a lot of potential for failure.
So far, I'm satisfied but I'm really worried that I won't like the next season because of how easily they could ruin it.

Xavier Robbins
Xavier Robbins:
I wish the writers knew more about how time travel works. They make it seem like people who time travel would be immune to the effects that it would have on there future selves, and the fact that that would happen immediately. The people in the umbrella academy for no reason keep all there memories about the umbrella academy even though the concept never existed in the first place, and the fact that by going back in time and changing all these things it would erase them from existence. They would exist theoretically in the past only the create the present future of the sparrow academy, but they shouldn't exist in the present because they killed their present selves. Actually now that i think about it. It would just cause a time paradox, and probably cause a tear in space time because their past selves only exist to create the sparrow academies timeline, but because the timeline where they grew up in the umbrella academy to eventually go into the past to create the timeline of the sparrow academy doesn't exist both timelines would have no way of existing, destroying reality. Also they underestimate the power of an organization that can move freely through time any catalogue all time lines. This power would make anyone in the commission effectively immortal. These people live in a place outside of time so they wouldn't age, but there is also the fact that assassinating the head commissioners(forgot their name) would be impossible. Five would never have been able to do it because the commission would have already found out about it before he even walked in the room every time he tried. Think about it, the commissioners don't exist only in the present that they were killed. Because all the agents and personal can freely move to any point in time whenever, all anyone has to do is see that they were killed, go back in time speak with the commissioner head before they went to the place they would die and tell them that it is dangerous and they won't go effectively erasing that timeline, and any timeline where they are killed. This should also be the case for any person in the organization because they would just need to do the same for them, and the fact that they let skilled agents be killed is weird to me; I mean it would only take a like an hour out their endless lives to do it so I don't know why they don't. This is why they would be so terrifying, because as long as one agent remains the entire organization can never be destroyed.
