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.

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.

I was crying because of what happened to Ben and then at the end you see him again, I was so relieved. Can't wait for the next season!!
Adventures of TinTin
Adventures of TinTin:
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 :)
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!

Diadonutwhal
Diadonutwhal:
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.

the fact that the commission couldn’t even landed one shot on the siblings was sad for them

Hina Gilani
Hina Gilani:
the thing I'm confused about is where the other 5 went. like they went through all that effort to push the "older looking" 5 to 2019 so that the timeline would stay the same (which was obviously very wrong bc each of the characters was unknowingly changing the timeline with each of their actions) but like what happened to that timeline? I don't think the show really expands on whether or not there are multiple universes or timelines but like some of the things just don't make sense to me. the thing about the commission still existing even though the apocalypse never happened confuses me a lot. I just don't think there could be one continuous timeline bc there's still that whole mystery with the umbrella academy in 2019 that the older looking 5 went to. I know that because 5 looks older and Luther and 5 told him so many things about the future that the season 1 events are unlikely to repeat but damn I just wanna know what happened.
