Diego learns that he is the prime suspect for Detective Patch’s murder and Allison recognizes Harold as Leonard from a police file. Diego, Allison, and Five break into Leonard’s house, discovering destroyed Umbrella Academy memorabilia, but their hunt is cut short after Five passes out from a shrapnel wound. Luther becomes depressed upon learning the truth behind his mission to the moon. He goes to a rave where he gets intoxicated. Klaus follows him and is knocked unconscious in a fight.

On the same day in October 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now almost thirty years old, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.
