♪ Lonely woman ♪

"We were never a real family.

We were our father's creation, family in name...

And smile. - ...but not in fact."

"In the end, after our brother Ben had died, there was really nothing connecting us.

We were just strangers living under the same roof..."

"...destined to be alone..."

- "...starved for attention..." Oh.

"...damaged by our upbringing..."

Oh, my God.

She wrote that?

I can't believe she would do that. Shh!

"...and haunted by what might have been."

"We all wanted to be loved by a man incapable of giving love."

"Our father never missed an opportunity to remind me that I was ordinary.

A hard thing for a little girl to hear."

"If you're raised to believe nothing about you is special, if the benchmark is extraordinary, what do you do if you're not?"

Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit.

Shit.


Um... I'm so sorry I'm late.

I hadn't noticed.

From the top.


Play it again.

We've watched it over and over, Luther.

It's the same every time.

Er... What is she doing?

The tea. Did she poison him?

Uh... I don't know.

Where did you find this?

I was looking at old footage of us as kids, and I saw the tape just sitting there.

Yeah, Dad must have started using the security system again.

He was getting more and more paranoid.

He thought people were out to get him.

Well...

I guess maybe he was right.

But Mom?

I mean, she's not capable of...

Is she?

Mom?

We need to ask you some questions about the night that Dad died.

Do you remember anything?

Of course. Sunset, 7:33 p.m.

Moon was waxing crescent, dinner was Cornish hen, wild rice, and carrots. No. No, uh... later that night.

In his bedroom.

Did you go and see him?

I don't recall.

Were you ever... I don't know, angry with Dad?

Your father was a good man.

A kind man.

He was very good to me.

Yes, but after we all left, it must have been difficult.

Oh, there were days.

You kids kept me oh so busy, and then...

What?

What were you gonna say?

Eggs are ready!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Now, eat up.

Both of you.

Do you seriously still not understand the chain of custody?

If you touch it, I can't use it.

Let me save you some time running ballistics.

These nine-millimeters haven't been manufactured since 19... 1963. Odd, I know.

Matching casings were found at a murder scene last night.

Ishmael's Towing.

The driver?

Found him hanging from the ceiling.

Looks like he must have known something after all.

It's a shame nobody told you to go talk to him.

In the span of 24 hours, I've had attacks in three different places across town.

Whatever this is, whoever this is, they're not slowing down.

So, if you really give a shit and you've got any fresh ideas, I'm all ears.

The guy's kid, in the doughnut shop?

I've got units tracking the extended family in case anyone goes after him.

Well, this place must have surveillance footage.

No, it doesn't exist.

The first unit on the scene clocked two shooters fleeing the premises, wearing, get this, creepy kids' masks.

The city is really going to shit, huh?

Coming from the guy dressed in spandex?

It's not spandex, it's leather.

And you used to like it. A lot, if I recall.

God, please un-remember that. Etched into the data bank, Eudora.

And we're done.

Yeah, well, you go fill out your forms while I go hunt these animals down.

And, Detective, I do give a shit.

I still can't get over the fact that you two used to...

Not another word, Beeman.

Not another damn word.


Helen...

You were great today.

Really, really great.

Thanks.

It's those runs in the Stravinsky. I've been hacking at them for weeks, and you just make... Make them look easy?

What's your name again?

Vanya. Vanya.

And how many years have you been stuck at third chair?

At a certain point, it's not about practice.

It's whether you've got something special.

And maybe you just... don't.

You can put in your 10,000 hours, or... you can go find something you're actually passionate about and stop slogging away at Stravinsky like a scared 13-year-old.

Think it over.

...at an RV park.

But they can have generators on them, they can have their own tanks for waste, everything.

All these materials, this is what I'd use on a normal house...

I don't understand how you can watch this crap.

You don't find it interesting, how ordinary people live their lives?

They're agonizing over kitchen cabinets as if the entire fate of the universe rests on whether they choose azure blue or asparagus green.

And your point is?

Sometimes there's beauty in the mundane, you know?

Well, then, this is the most beautiful room I've ever seen.

Seven percent reduction in payment due to job delay.

Further reduction every 24 hours until job completion.

That is just... I mean...

It's only been one lousy day.

Let's see 'em get out from behind their desks, get their hands dirty for once.

Damn lazy bastards.

Are you done?

Yeah.

Well, let's get back out there and kill this little shit.


Damn it, where's Dad's stuff?

Can we go see a movie or something?

Or the ocean? Shut up!

I'm trying to find whatever... priceless crap was in that priceless box so that Pogo will get off my ass!

I'd ask what you're up to, Klaus, but then it occurred to me...

I don't care.

Hey!

You know there are easier ways out of the house, buddy?

This one involved the least amount of talking.

Or so I thought.

Hey, hey, hey, so...

You need any more company today?

I could, uh... clear my schedule.

Looks like you've got your hands full.

Oh, this? No, no. I can do this whenever.

I'm just...

I just misplaced something. That's all.

Oh!

Found it! Thank God!

Delicious.

I'm done funding your drug habit.

Come on! You don't...

Maybe I just wanna hang out with my brother.

Not you.

¡Mi hermano!

I love you!

Even if you can't love yourself!


Oh, shit.

Hey.

Sorry you were in there for so long, Delores.

No, I'm not drunk.

I'm working.

Yes, it's about the eye thing.

This is the place it was made.

Or... will be made.

We just have to wait.

I don't like this any more than you do, but she's hiding something.

Hiding? To me, she just sounded confused.

Well, uh... You saw the tape.

Grace knew what she was doing. Grace?

This morning, she was Mom.

She's a machine, Allison.

Who read to us and cleaned up after us and put us to bed.

And then we left her here, alone, in this house for 13 years.

I mean, no wonder she lost her mind.

To be away from your kids?

Hey, what happened with... Claire?

With Patrick?

You never told me.

Yeah, I don't wanna talk about it.

It's just... when we were kids, we used to sit in here and tell each other everything.

Yeah, and then we grew up.

Things got ugly between Patrick and me.

Now the court says I have to do this mandatory therapy thing before I can have visitation.

What for?

You used your power on her.

I mean, there were days where she'd have these epic meltdowns.

And no matter what I said, she wouldn't stop.

She was three then, and I...

I know that's what three-year-olds are supposed to do.

So I said I would do it that one time.

Only it wasn't just that one time.

I told myself any... parent with my power would do the same.

That it wasn't wrong.

I just had an advantage.

I mean, from the time I was little, I used it to get everything I wanted.

Mm-hmm. With Dad, with my career...

But now, I know nothing in my life was real.

So I'm starting over.

I just didn't think it would be so hard.

It'll get easier.

Some things just take time. Yeah.

And some things just stay broken.

You're still lookin' for Mr. Puddles.

I... I got out of rehearsal and was in the neighborhood, so I thought...

I... Came all the way to Bricktown?

Well, since you're here, you might as well come in.

These are beautiful. Ah, thank you.

Restoration antiques.

It's my bread and butter.

But I do play around with other things.

Like what?

Oh...

I don't know.

It's kind of embarrassing.

Come on.

You made all these? When I was a kid, my imagination was my escape.

And, clearly, I never grew up.

No, it's amazing.

Which one is your favorite?

Ballerina is kind of my best.

Or maybe the duck.

Or the other duck.

Or the other duck.

But there is one you should see.

Is that...? Okay, so I might have... stayed up last night making this.

Wow.

It's beautiful.

Thank you. Take it.

Oh, no. I...

I insist. Please.

I made it for you.

You inspired me.

This is so bizarre. We've known each other for... two days?

I feel like you know me better than anyone in my family. Hey.

This might be a little inappropriate, seeing as I'm your... impressionable young student, but... would you want to have dinner with me tonight?

You don't have to if you don't want to.

Yeah. It's fast...

No, I... ...I know, but...

I'd like that.

Yeah?

Allison? Hey.

Leonard, this is my sister, Allison.

Wait a second, I know you.

You were in that movie. You're in the movie, the...

You were the lawyer.

The tough one in the wheelchair, right?

Yeah. Yeah, that was me.

You didn't tell me your sister was a movie star.

Wow!

You were in that Umbrella thing, too, weren't you?

But you weren't in that, were you?

No, uh... I was sort of the fifth Beatle of the family, so...

I never really did like the Beatles. More of a Stones guy, myself.

Um, I'm sorry to interrupt, but, uh... could you come back to the house?

We're having a family meeting. And you guys want me there?

Of course.

It's about Mom.

I'm so sorry. I... Oh, don't be.

We'll do a rain check on dinner.

Bye. Thanks.

Yeah.

Who's the guy?

He's a... just a friend. Friend?

No, it's not...

Maybe I'm just trying to not separate myself from everything and everyone.

I'm... I'm sorry.

I shouldn't have said those things to you yesterday.

I was angry with Patrick, and I...

I took it out on you.

I'm really sorry.

I'm, uh...

I'm not good at this whole sister thing.

I hadn't noticed.

Ouch.

Tell me how you really feel.

Maybe I will. Okay!

Kick it over here!

Whoa!

No!

Five.

Five!

Hey, Five.

No!

Five!

What are you...

Oh, my God...

You okay? You shouldn't be...

How did you find me?

Um...

Hey, baby...

Hey, a little privacy, guys. We're really hitting it off back here.

Get out! You can't be here!

I'm in the middle of something.

Any luck finding your one-eyed man? No.

What's he talkin' about? Does it matter? It's Klaus.

What do you want, Luther?

Um...

So, Grace may have had something to do with Dad's death.

So I need you to come back to the academy, all right? It's important.

"It's important." You have no concept of what's important.

Hey!

Did I ever tell you guys about the time I waxed my ass with chocolate pudding?

It was so painful. What are you still doing here?

Ay, ay, ay... What?

I... What? I need an excuse to hang out with my family?

We're trying to have a serious conversation.

What, and I'm incapable of being serious? Is that what you're saying?

Luther's got a point, you should get out. What?

Fine!

What the hell are you up to? You wouldn't understand.

Try me. Last I checked, I'm still the leader of this family.

Well, last I checked, I'm 28 years older than you.

You know what your problem is? Really hoping you'll tell me.

You think you're better than us.

You always have. Even when we were kids.

But the truth is, you're just as messed up as the rest of us.

We're all you have.

And you know it.

I don't think that I'm better than you, Number One.

I know I am.

I've done unimaginable things, things you couldn't even comprehend.

Right.

Just to get back here and save you all.

Whoo!

Stop!

Hey! Stop right now!

Hey, bitches!

You, get back here!

Out of the way, asshole!

Now I'm starting to wonder if that was the wisest decision.

You really love doughnuts, don't you?

Is there anything better in this world?

Well, I suppose not.

Though I guess I'm kind of biased, seeing as how I make them all day, every day.

All day, every day.

Elaborate. Well, um...

I get here before the sun's up.

I measure out the dry ingredients, I mix in the slurry real slow, and load 'em all into the extruder.

Extruder.

Yep.

That's what makes them into the doughnut shapes.

The real trick is, um...

I let 'em rise for about half an hour before I fry 'em up.

That's what makes them so... light and fluffy.

How come you're so light and fluffy?

Well, I guess you are what you eat.

Uh, might I try a raspberry jelly?

Oh. Sure.

The secret's in the jelly.

Agnes.

Beautiful name.

Well, thanks.

It means "pure."

Of course it does.

So, uh... is there anything that you might be able to tell us about the night that this place got shot up?

Um... Well, I... I mean, I already told the police everything I know.

Twice, actually.

Do you remember the boy from that night?

I didn't really notice him, to be honest.

Uh, him and his father sat right over there.

That most definitely was not his father.

We're just concerned for his... safety, is all. It's a dangerous world out there.

Wouldn't want anything bad to happen to him.

Are you with the police?

We were hired by his family to help get to the bottom of things.

So if there's anything you could tell us, we'd really appreciate it.

I'd really... appreciate it.

I'd... I'd really like to help, but I wouldn't know anything about that.

Although, come to think of it, there was one thing.

He had a... um, a tattoo on his wrist.

I mean, who lets a kid get a tattoo?

Unbelievable.

You mind drawing that tattoo?

Sure, I... Yeah, I can...

It was a circle... and...

Good. And there was... Ah, yeah.

I mean, do you really think Mom would hurt Dad?

You haven't been home in a long time, Vanya.

Maybe you don't know Grace anymore.

If he was poisoned, it would have shown in the coroner's report.

Well, I don't need a report to tell me what I can see with my own eyes.

Maybe all that low gravity in space messed with your vision.

Look closer.

Dad has his monocle. Mom stands up.

Monocle's gone. Oh, yeah!

She wasn't poisoning him. She was... taking it.

To clean it.

Then where is it?

No, I've searched the house, including her things. She doesn't have it.

She doesn't have it.

That's because I took it from her.

After the funeral.

You've had the monocle this whole time? What the hell, Diego?

Give it to me. I threw it away.

You what?

Look, I knew that if you found it on Mom, you'd lose your shit, just like you're doing right now.

Diego, you son of a bitch. Hey. No. Calm down.

Look, I know Dad wasn't exactly an open book.

But I do remember one thing he said.

Mom was, well, designed to be a caretaker, but... also as a protector.

What does that mean?

She was programmed to intervene if someone's life was in jeopardy.

Well, if her hardware is degrading, then...

We need to turn her off. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait.

She's not just a vacuum cleaner you can throw in a closet.

She feels things, I've seen it!

She just stood there, Diego, and watched our father die.

I'm with Luther.

Surprise, surprise. Shut up.

I... I don't... Yeah, she shouldn't get a vote.

Wh... I was gonna say that I agree with you.

Okay. She should get a vote.

What about you, stoner boy? What do you got?

Oh, so, what? You need my help now?

Oh, "Get out of the van, Klaus!" "Well, welcome back to the van."

What van?

What's it gonna be, Klaus?

I'm with Diego, because screw you!

And if Ben were here, he'd agree with me.

No, I don't.

So that's three? Wait.

To two. Vote's not final yet.

What? Five's not here.

The whole family has to vote. We owe each other that.

Right. No, we should wait.

Hey.

How long you been here?

You all seem upset. I'll make cookies.

Do you ever wonder...

All those moments with Mom, the things she said.

Like, was it her, or was it really Dad?

What are you talking about?

Well, he built her.

And he programmed her to be a mom, to be our mom.

Sometimes when I look at her, I just see him.

Maybe that was true at first.

But she evolved.

Well, how do you know?

Because Dad only loved himself.


Coming through! Come on, Luther!

How will the Umbrella Academy ever become an effective crime deterrent if we can't even leave the house on time for missions?

Behind you! Come along, children! Come along!

I can't find my domino mask.

It needed a little bit of TLC after the last mission.

Thanks, Mom.

Ready to go?

Yeah.

Where's my knives?

Sounds beautiful, Vanya. Thanks, Mom.

Oh! Klaus!

Thank you, Mother.

Boys will be boys.

Oh, Ben.

It... It's stuck.

Guys, wait for me. D... Don't mmm...

Don't mm... mm... mm...

Don't muh... muh...

Remember, Diego, just picture the word in your mind.

D-Don't mm... muh...

D-Don't mmm...

Don't mo-move.

You did it! I'm so proud of you!


Mom, we need to talk.

Okay, but only for a minute. I need to finish this cross-stitch.

Everything you did for us when we were kids... for me... why'd you do it?

Because being your mother is the greatest gift of my life.

Is that you saying that?

I'm not sure what you mean, Diego.

I mean, our father, he... made you.

When you think something, is it like he's telling you what to say?

Your father isn't here, silly.

Did I do something wrong?

No, it's... it's not...

Look.

It's okay... if you hated him.

He was terrible to you, to all of us. Don't say that.

Why not?

We were just tools in an experiment to him. Nothing more.

So I'm saying, I would understand if...

you know, if... if you wanted to hurt him.

Now, now.

Mr. Hargreeves was a great man.

Industrialist, inventor, Olympic gold medalist.

He made the world a better place.

Stop it!

Do you hear me? Stop trying to defend him!

Mom, you gotta feel something.

Look, he treated you worse than anyone.

You worked for him for 30 years.

He didn't even give you a room to sleep in.

But I've got such beautiful views here.

Mom, those are just paintings.

Of course they are.

What a wonderful world she lives in.

Sometimes I wonder if she's lonely.

You know, you don't have to tell me that. I know there are only six days left.

Yeah, you got a better idea?

Okay, then.

There's our guy.

What the hell is he up to?


Cha-Cha.

That's our kid.


Klaus!

Klaus!

Klaus!

Klaus!

Klaus. Klaus!

Klaus! Klaus!

Oh...

Oh!

Oh.

Although, every now and then... when the sun came rolling over the horizon just right, and the light hits it,

everything would turn to white glass.

It's...

It's beautiful.

You know, whatever you told Claire,

I didn't really feel like a superhero up there, but...

those few moments when my whole world was glowing, I felt like maybe I was meant to be there.

You know?

I wish I'd been there with you.

You were.

Is that...?

It's coming from our bedrooms.

Cha-Cha, shoot him.

Get out of the way, dumbass.

Come on.


Let her go!

Who the hell are these guys?

Who the hell are these people?

I don't know, but at least we know who owns the shoe.

You're welcome. I was doing fine.

Oh, yeah, you really had them... Ever hear of a rope-a-dope?

Get out of here now! Go!

Luther, go!

I lost my gun. I'm going after them.

Hello?

Guys? Is everyone okay?

Hello?

Did you know?

No.

Shit. Mom.

Mom.

You okay?

Of course I am.

You didn't hear the noises?

The guys in the masks that just shot up the house?

What are you talking about, silly?


Diego?

What are you doing?


It's gonna be o...

Remember what we worked on. Just picture the word in your mind.

It's gonna be okay...Mom.


Di-e-go...

Re... mem... ber.

Who were those people?

I don't know. But we are lucky to be alive.

You sure you're okay?

Diego?

What are you still doing here?

I'm just trying to help. No, you could've been killed.

Or gotten any of us killed.

She is a liability.

Allison?

I think what he's trying to say is that this kind of stuff is dangerous.

You're just... Not like you.

No, that's not what I...

Vanya, wait. Let her go.

It's for the best.


Vanya!

Oh, my God, you're bleeding.

What happened? Sorry, I...

I didn't know where else to go.

It's okay.

Come in.

...structure of a haunted house.

With the main structure in place, we are launching into the creepy corridor, and, without even having to shake a floor plate, it's already starting to feel spooky.

I'm still...

Where the hell were you?

When you didn't come out, I figured we'd just regroup here.

And you stopped... to get a jelly doughnut?

Maybe.

After everything we just went through?

Well, I needed some comfort food after that disaster.

Well, tonight's a total loss.

Well, I'm not so sure about that.
