At 3 am ET on Friday morning, the Hargreeves siblings were sprinkled all across the city of Dallas’ timestream as Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy came storming back into our lives for a second season. While we’re holding our cards close to our chest regarding our review of the season (posting this weekend), we will say that there’s a lot going on right from the start. You already know that Five (Aidan Gallagher) grabbed his family and time jumped to safety at the end of last season, and between teasers and trailers we know that they ended up in Dallas in the early 1960’s. Small problem: they didn’t land at the same time. Literally. As you’re about to see. What follows is an official look at where (and when) the Hargreeves ended up as well as a glimpse at what they did when they got there. It should go without saying that we have quite a few MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! moments ahead, so tread carefully:
Luther (Tom Hopper) lands in 1962, working as a driver for the owner of a burlesque bar (John Kapelos), who becomes a sort of father figure for him. When he’s not looking for his family, or racing with Five to stop the nuclear doomsday and get back to 2019, he’s using his super strength in underground boxing rings.
