The Umbrella Academy - Kugelblitz

In the fallout from the confrontation with the Sparrows, Luther (Tom Hopper) attempts to win trust back from Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez) as the two come up with a plan to broker piece between the two families. The arrival of Harlan Cooper (Callum Keith Rennie) leads to several questions from Viktor (Elliot Page) who by the end will make a shocking discovery concerning the death of the Umbrella Academy's mothers and the Grandfather Paradox that is slowly destroying the universe. Viktor isn't the only one to make a shocking discovery as Five (Aidan Gallagher) and Lila (Ritu Arya) discover the man behind the crumbling Temps Commission who warns the pair not to try and save the world.

Five's discovery that he was the brains behind the Commission lead to all kinds of questions about its attempts to kill him over the years. While buried at the end of the episode, Five giving his younger self the advice on not saving the world offers its own kind of paradox. As for Harlan, Viktor now knows the cause of the paradox but the team is no closer to being able to solve the problems that all stem from their time in Dallas in the 1960s. And, if the older Five is to believed, our heroes should stop trying to save the world, but what does that really mean?
