The Umbrella Academy fan theory about Lila that changes everything
The last time viewers and members of the Umbrella Academy see Lila, she uses a briefcase to escape to an unknown location and time. At this point, Lila is very angry with the Hargreeves family, as she finds out that her adoptive mother, the Handler (Kate Walsh), had Lila’s biological mother number five (Aidan Gallagher) murdered so she could control. Lila and her powers. Although she was originally introduced as the psychiatric patient and love interest of Diego (David Castañeda), Lila is proving to be far more important to Season 2 than viewers originally thought. And it could happen again in season 3.
Reddit user u / helvetica_licorne has a very interesting theory about Lila. They argue that, motivated by anger, Lila uses a briefcase to prevent the five Hargreeves children she knows from being born – which would explain why Ben, whom she doesn’t know, survives in this timeline. In this theory, it’s not that Sir Reginald deliberately chose different children – he just didn’t care that the people he met in 1963 never emerged, because he saw them as children anyway. disappointments.
One potential problem with this theory is that no one knows how or why the 43 children were born – with the possible exception of Sir Reginald, but probably not Lila. Their mothers were not pregnant at the start of the day, and their births were all very sudden, so Lila probably couldn’t stop the conception and birth of the five members of the Umbrella Academy. But she could have killed them when they were kids, which is pretty brutal – but then again, she was raised to be an assassin.
It looks like we’ll just have to wait and see what happens in Season 3 of “The Umbrella Academy”.
