The Umbrella Academy - A Light Supper

Still not believing any of them are who they say they are, Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) invites all the members of the family to a light supper in order to get down to the truth. Things go about how you would expect a Hargraves family dinner to go. Complete disaster. However, Five's (Aidan Gallagher) discussion with his father does crystallize a plan of action for him, even if it does mean making a deal with the devil. Meanwhile, while hoping to tempt Five into commuting some murders for her, the Handler (Kate Walsh) continues to play both sides by reahing out to the Swedes by offering up Diego's (David Castañeda) location who she framed for the murder of their brother.

Love seems to make a rebound here as Sissy (Marin Ireland) makes a desperate plea to the heartbroken Vanya (Ellen Page) and Alison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) reveals the truth about her powers to her husband (including the dangers of them and why she is reluctant to use them). Raymond (Yusuf Gatewood) may be more understanding afterwards, but he also realizes there is no way she can prove she hasn't used her powers on him. As for Vanya and Sissy running off into the sunset together, Carl (Stephen Bogaert) catching a glimpse of them together doesn't bode well.
