Umbrella Academy Must Stop Ignoring Its Biggest Mystery

The Umbrella Academy is preparing for its fourth and final season, but it has a bunch of questions to answer, and it has to stop ignoring the series’ biggest mystery. The Umbrella Academy has seen the title team facing three different apocalypses, which have helped them rebuild their broken relationship, but the more they learn about each other, the more questions arise about their origin, their adoptive father Reginald Hargreeves, his real motivations for forming the team, and more.

Over the course of three seasons, viewers have seen the members of the Umbrella Academy traveling through time and space, using their powers to protect each other and save the world, fighting against The Commission, and meeting a fellow superpowered woman who was born on the same day as them and under the same mysterious circumstances: Lila (Ritu Arya). Lila’s presence raised more questions about the origins of the Hargreeves, and The Umbrella Academy season 4 has to finally explain what happened to the other kids.

Umbrella Academy Must Explain What Happened To The Other Kids

The members of the Umbrella and Sparrow Academy were born on October 1, 1989, as part of a group of 43 children who were born to women who weren’t pregnant when the day started, and this phenomenon happened in different parts of the world. Reginald Hargreeves set out to adopt as many of those kids as he could but only got seven, who he later trained and formed the Umbrella and Sparrow Academies, in different timelines. It was later revealed thanks to Lila’s introduction that the members of the Umbrella and Sparrow teams aren’t the only superpowered kids of the group, and it was later confirmed that the light orbs that Reginald released in a flashback in season 1 were the ones responsible for the kids’ birth and their superpowers, so it’s implied that all of them have superpowers.

Now, the Umbrella and Sparrow Academies became widely famous thanks to their heroic acts, so much so that Harold Jenkins/Leonard Peabody tried to join the team because he was born on the same day as them, but only by coincidence as it was a normal birth and he had no superpowers. If all the 43 marigolds kids have superpowers, it’s hard to believe that none of them stepped up when the Umbrella and Sparrow teams became famous and that they never showed their extraordinary abilities, which would have caught the attention of everyone around them.

Umbrella Academy’s New Timeline Makes The 43 Kids Mystery Harder To Solve

The Umbrella Academy season 3 ended with a big twist as Reginald created a new timeline in which none of the surviving Umbrellas and Sparrows have superpowers, so it’s understood that the other kids are either powerless or don’t exist. However, it’s possible that during the timeline reset, Reginald and Allison completely ignored the other kids and they still exist and have superpowers, somehow. This would make way for a storyline similar to that between Harlan and Viktor in season 3, with the Hargreeves siblings taking the other kids under their wings and guiding and training them, which could lead to the others being the heroes in this final confrontation with Reginald. Surely, The Umbrella Academy season 4 has a lot of mysteries to solve, but the one about the rest of the marigold children shouldn’t be ignored anymore.
