Luther Hargreeves might not be every person’s favored personality in The Umbrella Academy, however there’s no rejecting that he’s been through the question during the Netflix series. In addition to almost passing away and also his siblings mocking his ape-like look, he likewise discovered in Season 1 that his separated moon mission was never vital. Nonetheless, Season 3 provides Luther the guarantee that it wasn’t for nothing.
In Season 2, Allison’s partner presents her From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne because she always gazed at the moon at evening, thinking of Luther. When everybody believes of the moon, they think of Luther, however he does not remember it lovingly.
Season 1 exposed that Reginald Hargreeves sent out Luther up to the moon for four years to offer him a sense of purpose. In real Reginald fashion, he never told Luther the truth regarding why he was up there. Season 3, Episode 9, “Seven Bells” opens with a recall montage of Luther on the moon– slowly losing persistence as he looks via rubble for 4 years. Yet unbeknownst to Luther, somebody else got on the moon with him. The video camera zooms bent on show a woman by the name of Abigail Hargreeves cryogenically frozen on the base.
Abigail isn’t a brand-new character, however she hasn’t been seen for some time. Abigail was briefly in a flashback during the Season 1 ending, in which she was exposed to be Reginald’s other half, that was on her deathbed. She told Reginald that the world required him, but the show is still taking their pleasant time to disclose why (much like exactly how Ben passed away before Season 1).
Luther has actually been holding an animosity over Reginald considering that his revelation, as well as takes it out on Reginald as much as he can. Reginald tries to be a papa to Luther in Season 3, and tells him that his moon mission did have a purpose– however never especially states what it was.
Reginald’s newfound love for fathership appears all well and dandy– till the Season 3 finale exposes what he’ll give up to revive Abigail. Reginald produces an elaborate strategy to bring his continuing to be children together to reset the universe to beat the Kugelblitz. When the end of Season 3 reveals a far worse timeline where Reginald policies the world with Abigail, it’s pretty clear that this was his end objective all along.
From what Season 3 shows, Luther’s moon mission was just a tiny part of the formula. Reginald deliberately developed Hotel Obsidian around the alien device that resets deep space, and he educated the atrocious Sparrows (as well as potentially the Umbrellas) to combat versus the guardian of it. Most severe of all, he was prepared to kill each of his children if it indicated being with his spouse. Luther’s mission is one of the many enigmas The Umbrella Academy has fixed regarding Reginald, yet there’s still so much extra he needs to answer for. With any kind of good luck, Season 4 will lastly air out every one of Reginald’s dirty laundry.
