Season 2 employed three brothers — known only as the Swedes — to get rid of the Umbrella Academy.
The Commission has played a critical role throughout the first two seasons of The Umbrella Academy. Tasked with maintaining the timeline, the bureaucratic agency deploys assassins (like Five) to take out anyone who isn’t supposed to be there. At least that’s how the Handler, the Commission’s scheming boss, explains it anyway.
In Season 1, Cha-Cha and Hazel struggled to find the Hargreeves siblings and their efforts were thwarted at every turn. Season 2 employed three brothers — known only as the Swedes — to get rid of the Umbrella Academy. Their mission seemed pretty cut and dry. However, an intriguing new theory suggests the Swedes may not be who they seem at all.
Spoilers ahead for The Umbrella Academy Season 2.
