    "Can you hug me as I go?" (Warning: Major spoilers!)

    🚨 WARNING BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER: THERE ARE MAJOR SPOILERS FOR "THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY" SEASON 2 AHEAD!!! 🚨

    Last week, Netflix dropped the second season of The Umbrella Academy — and if you're here, that probably means you've binge-watched it all. So, let's talk about what happened and reminisce about some of its best moments.

    Netflix

    1. When everyone fell out of their respective time portals, except Diego, who landed gracefully.

    CEO of landing out of time portals gracefully.

    2. When we're introduced to the alternate versions of the Hargreeves siblings in 1963 and get to see their powers in action.

    3. Including Vanya, who casually deflected a missile like it was no big deal.

    Netflix

    Oh, what's that? A tank missile? Yeah, I'll just flick it away.

    4. When Klaus and Ben got into an argument, which resulted in them "fighting" on the side of the road like this.

    Netflix

    I've said it once and I'll say it again — Netflix, release the BTS footage of Robert Sheehan and Justin Min filming this, PLEASE.

    5. When Alison kicked that racist white dude's ass out of the beauty salon.

    Netflix

    YES, ALISON HARGREEVES!!! You show that white man who is boss.

    6. When Five roasted Diego by using this superhero analogy to describe him.

    7. When Klaus quoted lyrics from TLC's "Waterfalls" and used them as inspirational advice.

    8. When Luther is reunited with Vanya — and instead of killing her, he apologised for how she was treated as a kid.

    9. When Vanya used her powers to deflect a bullet from one of the Swedes, which resulted in this massive crop circle.

    Netflix

    Like, I knew Vanya was powerful — but seeing what she did to the bullet and the crops really put it into perspective.

    10. When Klaus and Alison had this super sweet and wholesome reunion after being apart for so long.

    11. When Alison, Ray and the rest of the civil rights movement group staged the walk-in on the whites only cafe.

    This one was a really powerful, but uncomfortable moment — not only because of what it was showing, but because of the riots that happened after, which seemed all-too-familiar to the Blacks Lives Matter protests that have taken place in 2020.

    12. When Klaus met Dave and couldn't help but get emotional.

    Netflix

    13. When Diego and Lila danced with each other at the party at the Mexican Consulate.

    This almost felt like callback to Season 1, where Luther and Alison had their dance sequence moment.

    14. When Vanya used her powers to find and save Harlan from death.

    Netflix

    I still am trying to work out exactly what happened here — did Vanya bring Harland back to life because she transferred some of her power to him?

    15. When Sissy kissed Vanya and explained how important she is to her.

    Netflix

    16. When we were introduced to baby Pogo, who is quite possibly the cutest thing in existence.

    I'm 100% serious when I say I would die for baby Pogo.

    17. When the entire Umbrella Academy crew were finally back together.

    Netflix

    18. Which resulted in Ben saying these emotion-filled words.

    Ben, I — how dare you make me weep in front of my laptop, yet again.

    19. When Vanya, Alison and Klaus let off some steam and danced with each other in the beauty salon.

    Netflix

    20. When the much-anticipated family dinner with Reginald turned into, well, a bit of a mess.

    Netflix

    Not to mention Vanya making all the fruit on the table explode, lol.

    21. When Diego and Luther accidentally threatened a woman by the name of Olga Foroga because they mistranslated "Öga For Öga".

    Diego is on the phone to a lady called Olga Foroga and threatens her. Five corrects him and explains how  Öga for Öga, idiots is a Swedish saying. Diego realises his mistake.
    Netflix

    DUMMIES, but also, I love them and couldn't help but laugh at the whole stupidity of the situation. Also, poor, old, Olga Foroga.

    22. When Diego was reunited with Ben and was able to talk to him for the first time in 17 years.

    Netflix

    23. Which resulted in the revelation of Klaus' cult being called "Destiny's Children".

    Ben, who is in Klaus' body, says to Diego "What about destiny's children? We can't just leave them."
    Netflix

    Destiny's Child, Destiny's CHILDREN — I see what you did there, Klaus.

    24. When Five was forced to confront a younger version of himself.

    Netflix

    25. When the camera slowly panned around Luther holding his, erm, package, while the Fives were fighting in the background.

    Netflix

    26. When Ben ultimately saved the world by sacrificing himself to calm Vanya down and remind her that she's not alone.

    Blue light surrounds Ben as says, "Can you hug me as I go?"

    And his parting words were asking Vanya for a hug. *Sobs.*

    27. When it was revealed that Reginald is, in fact, an alien.

    Netflix

    This was theorised by more than a couple of fans back when Season 1 ended and now we FINALLY have confirmation. But, what does it all MEAN?!

    28. When the entire Umbrella Academy crew banded together to help Vanya save Harlan.

    Netflix

    29. When Diego saved Five by suspending and deflecting an army's worth of bullets.

    Was this Diego's power evolving or did he simply...curve them somehow? Someone smarter than me, please explain.

    30. Not to mention, when Vanya eliminated said army, resulting in the reveal of Lila's powers.

    Netflix

    31. When Five remembered the advice Reginald gave him and time traveled a couple of seconds back in order to save his family.

    32. And lastly, when the Hargreeves siblings transported themselves back to 2019 — only to find out that the timeline wasn't all that it seemed.

    THE SPARROW ACADEMY??? AND BEN?? And oh my god, please just give me Season 3 now.
