If you have questions after watching the first season of Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy,” we can tell you that we don’t have any answers. And neither does David Castañeda, who starred as Diego on the streamer’s adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s graphic novels about a dysfunctional family of superheroes.
The ending to the Season 1 finale sees the Umbrella Academy, after failing to stop Vanya (Ellen Page) and avert the apocalypse, decide to let Five (Aidan Gallagher) take them all back in time to try and prevent it entirely. And in doing so, we still Vanya, Five, Diego, Luther (Tom Hopper), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan) and even Ben (Justin H. Min) all de-age down to their pre-teen selves. Huh?
Yeah, Castañeda doesn’t know what’s going on there either.
