In season 4, we look forward to answering some of the most important questions

In season 4, we look forward to answering some of the most important questions ...

This post reveals spoilers for The Umbrella Academy''s season 3 timeline. You might know that, but if not, look out!

Just when the Hargreeves kids thought they had a seat on the space-time continuum, they were thrown for another loop or, rather, into another loop. In the final, the members of the Umbrella Academy discover themselves in an alternate reality where their father Reginald has his name on a triad of buildings, and they have no authority (and they are not the only ones).

What does all that mean in the grand scheme of the Umbrella Academy? Yes, this is a complicated question, and Netflix hasn''t renewed the series yet, but the idea of not having a season 4 is difficult to assess, especially since there are still a slew of other options in the series beyond the jump to a different timeline.

Did Allison betray the Umbrella Academy at the end of the season or not?

Allison bashes Reginald over the head, and she begins futzing with his machine. While the rest of the Hargreeves try to stop her, Viktor admits to being able to trust her only for her to push the button she liked.

It is unknown if what Allison did was actually something she understood. After all, it appears unlikely that Reginald would have planned a world in which she had the family she wanted. While, I think there will be a lot of guilt that will affect her at some point. She got her happy ending, but at the sacrifice of everyone else she loves.

Why are they unable to have authority?Where was Sloane going?

I am not an expert on future-day, possibly alien technology. But is the world that Reginalds machine threw them into, where the remaining Hargreeves children had no powers, and also Sloane was gone for some reason where he intended to land?

Reginald is seemingly even more a captain of industries in this new world. This opportunity might, perhaps, be a testament to what he could accomplish with no super children at all, or perhaps? Had he fully channeled all of his powers into some other alien scheme completely. Parents who love everything (Allison, Sparrow Ben, Luther, Klaus, Viktor, Five, and Lila) might be excluded because of their involvement in the machine that brought them there, however it wreake.

Aidan Gallagher (Five) expects everyone to be adapting in their own way. As far as Five goes, I think Gallagher does so, as long as he is not dependent on his abilities to sort of make up the physical difference between what hes used to and what his body and reflexes believe he can do, and therefore he may be more productive in future seasons.

Ritu Arya, who plays Lila, isn''t quite so optimistic about her character: [Lila] wouldnt know how to function. I think a lot of her confidence and bravado are from this power. I don''t know how shell be able to live. Perhaps shell be quite clumsy.

Who is that with Reginald at the window?

From what it appears, the woman next to Reginald is the same woman who has always been by his side, one way or another: Alice, his wife, and the basis for the Mother robot he kept around the Umbrella Academy (and the Sparrow Academy, although she was not there as Mother, you perv).

In the face of Luther''s time on the moon, we see that original-flavor Reginald had kept Alice in cryogenesis on the moon. It stands to be true that in this new world in which Reginald has much more capital, maybe he could save Alice in some way?

What the fuck is Reginalds deal though?

Although he looms wide over the Umbrella Academy (and by proxy, The Umbrella Academy), we know very little about Reginald''s entire situation. On October 1, 1989, he was deeply interested in adopting the kids magically(?) born to 43 women. As an eccentric billionaire and inventor, the pilot of the Umbrella Academy informed us that Reginald was extremely suited to adopt the majority of them.

Pogo was considered an alien, who may account for some of his technology skill at the end of season 3. He was concerned about having him take some medications every day. In the new season 4, his name is on nearly every skyscraper in the city.

Here''s not exactly easy to look into the comic book for answers, and here the story has almost entirely disappeared, and in the book Reginald is introduced as an alien within a few pages. After three seasons, it''s past time we get a little bit more insight into what his endgame is (in any version of reality).

What is the Jennifer Incident?

Bens death has been linked to the Jennifer incident, but little discussion has been made between the members of the Umbrella Academy. (Even Sparrow Ben appears uninterested to prod any deeper into what happened to his alternate self.) So what is the implications of this incident?

After season 3, we still don''t know. Some people have thought that Ben died by suicide, because the plaque at the manor states, "May the darkness within you find peace in the light." But Gerard Way, who co-wrote the comics, told Forbes that it was a mystery that (at least in the comics) he had never solved fully. I always knew I was going to resolve it, according to Way. The Umbrella Academy is almost like improvisational jazz. You''re making it up as

It may still be able to answer it, especially since its never been particularly loyal to its source material, and theres already been a few clues out there about the program, like Viktor noticing a Jennifer sketch in Bens room. Plus Sparrow Ben appears to be around to stay, thus he appears to be a viable entry point.

Why does Harlans briefcase say Lester Pocket?

Is it meaningful that the Harlans briefcase says Lester Pocket? Like so many things Umbrella Academy, perhaps! It''s a lot of work left out with him this name. Another Jennifer Incident, though, might be something that is meaningful or suggestive in a way not entirely clear yet.

Why did future Five not want Five to save the world?

Five finds that the phantom founder of the Time Commission is actually Five! After hes encountered his older self (in a paradox-proof panic room) Older Five advises him: "What you have done, you must do everything possible. "Forgive us all," he sends a darker warning: "Do not put yourself out before his machine powers off and he dies."

In the final battle against Reginalds machinations, Five loses his arm. However, in the park where they ended up in the new reality, Five''s arm is returned. It''s unclear if Older Five was just warning about the Hotel Oblivion showdown, or if they have accidentally triggered something far darker. (Knowing the Hargreeves yeah, probably!)

Why does Grace think the Kugelblitz is God?

Vanya (as the character is still known in the book) notices a robot Mom wearing a cross necklace. When she asks about it, the mother sends her to Norway, where she is introduced to the Sparrows.

Given how much the show has shifted from the books, it is probable that this is a way to combine in some of the same themes, plots, and imagery without making it directly.

Wait, so did anyone actually die?

Yes and no. Harlan did off screen, apparently by Allison, as did Klaus and Luther, who were each killed by Reginald. As for any of the other siblings who got Kugelblitzed, like Marcus... its unclear.

With the grand scheme of things, with the timeline once again set? Who knows! With Luther and Klaus coming back with no harm done, and with Luther even without a gorilla body. Whatever Harlan, Pogo, or any of the other people killed off in that alt-original-alt reality will return well, there''s nothing the Umbrella Academy loves more than a remix.
