So, upon the announcement of the sequel to Umbrella Academy, I decided to go and re-watch the show because my crush on white-eyed, suit-wearing Vanya sprung up again out of the blue!
I also remember that the ending had me stupidly shipping Allison and Vanya even with all the shit that went down let alone how unlikeable Allison was before, interestingly, she got her throat cut open like a hot knife to soft butter!
Come on, don’t look at me like that! You know you too were intrigued by the fact that it was Allison, who the strongest reason to hate the new Vanya, given that she almost killed her, be the only one to be on Vanya’s side when everyone else was not!
But while that thread is already interesting for the next season to see where those tow go, there was this other scene that raised my eyebrows and I can’t help think of where it too will be going, that is if the show-runners even remember the scene at all!
That scene in question was where Vanya was on the bus heading to the concert with her lonesome violin, and on that bus there was this girl who was looking at Vanya like we all were – like she wanted to do nothing but take Vanya right then and there!
That scene was pretty peculiar, and it stayed with me even to now! Given that Vanya was literally and probably figuratively locked away inside herself when Allison made her think she was just an ordinary girl when they were little (Allison has the power of persuasion) because Vanya’s power was too great, in fact so much so she literally ends the world at the end of season one, one might think that maybe her other qualities that might be considered out of the ordinary might also have been locked away all this time and when she was free, they were also freed!
Yeah, I am talking about her being into girls! This is of course just wishful thinking but the way she dressed even before she awoke, the fact that she never got close to anyone until that psycho got to her to use her and then there was that girl on the bus!
One just can’t help but think you know…
Oh well, we shall soon find out now that we are getting season 2! Until then…
