The Umbrella Academy Episode 6 Recap
The Umbrella Academy episode 6 shows us Klaus’s time in Vietnam. After opening the briefcase, he teleports into a barracks under attack. In the midst of the fighting, no one questions his appearance. During their tour, Klaus falls in love with Dave. Klaus follows Dave to the front lines, where Dave is shot and killed.
Luther calls a family meeting. He tells Allison, Diego, and Klaus that Hazel and Cha Cha are after Five because Five is trying to change the timeline by preventing the apocalypse. Allison asks what exactly Five saw in the future. Luther says that they banded together as a family and a team to stop whoever is responsible for the end of the world, but they died. Diego asks what Luther thinks is different this time. Luther says this time they have Five with them. Unfortunately, Five isn’t actually with them, though.
The following events take place during this episode following the family meeting:
Five is shown around The Commission’s headquarters, where he is assigned the role of case worker. Five is being watched carefully by Handler, who knows that Five will try to interfere with the apocalypse and save his family. Five learns who was assigned to his case. He learns the protocols for sending messages to hitmen throughout time. He discovers Handler’s weakness of taking war trophies from throughout time, even though she isn’t supposed to do so.
Five uses this information to put together a plan. He interferes with Dot’s case of protecting the apocalypse. He intercepts her note to Hazel and Cha Cha to protect someone named Harold Jenkins. In place of that assignment, Five types and send the assignments to Hazel and Cha Cha to kill one another. When Handler confronts him, Five uses one of the grenades from her office to blow up Handler and the pneumatic tube station. Five grabs a briefcase and uses another grenade to blow up the rest of the briefcases.
Family Meeting (Again)
When Five opens the briefcase, everything that happened while he was away gets wiped away. All of the decisions made, all of the secrets reveals and fantasies fulfilled did not happen. At the family meeting, when Diego asks what is different this time in their attempt to stop the apocalypse, Five teleports in. They have three days to stop the end of the world, and they’re going to start by finding Harold Jenkins.
