'The Umbrella Academy' Season 2: Klaus is fan favorite with his brilliant insights about Five and a mannequin
'The Umbrella Academy' Season 2 sees Luther, Diego, Klaus, Allison, Five, Ben and Vanya get thrown way back into the past after they tried to stop the apocalypse in 2019. Five opened up a time portal that dropped each of the seven at different times in the 60s and Klaus and Ben end up arriving in Dallas, Texas, at an alleyway after which, with Ben's help, Klaus ends up becoming a cult leader who receives a huge number of followers as a result of his abstract, senseless and at times hilarious insights.
For instance, when Allison talks to him about why rumoring has always led to problems in her life, just as it has now with her husband Ray, Klaus narrates the tale of the Scorpion and the Frog. Why? For no reason, because we are after all talking about Klaus. He went around touring the world with his followers and every time someone asked him for insight, he said the most random things.
When it is time for Klaus to return to 2019 and Ben tries to convince Klaus to come clean to his followers, Klaus tries to confess that he is a fraud. However, this snowballs into a confession session among his followers about why all of them happen to be frauds. In the same vein, it is also Klaus who tells Vanya and Allison about the only relationship that has lasted in the Umbrella Academy -- that between Five and a mannequin.
One fan shared on Twitter, "I finished the umbrella academy season two and I really don’t have much to say except... Stan the best character Klaus Hargreeves." Another fan referred to the opening scene of the show where Klaus is seen attacking the Soviet army with a ghost army of his own and shared, "What the heck, Klaus has his own army of ghosts holy freakin sigh!!!!! #theumbrellaacademy #theumbrellaacademy2."
Also, who can forget what Klaus had assumed would be his last words for Diego? One fan shared the same and wrote, "No one: ... Klaus: I need to tell you that you look like Antonio Banderas with long hair #theumbrellaacademy2." Another fan shared, "Klaus singing TLC - waterfall as a quote was the best [face with tears of joy] #theumbrellaacademy2."
Many were also interested in Klaus' cult. One wrote, "How does one join Klaus’s Cult?........ Asking for a friend of course...... haha #theumbrellaacademy2 #TheUmbrellaAcademy @UmbrellaAcad." Another fan wrote about his cult leader outfit, "Klaus is still my fave omg (and this outfit is killer) #theumbrellaacademy2."
Speaking of how utterly pointless the retelling of 'The Scorpion and the Frog' was, one fan shared, "Klaus, Klaus! I too was all ears at this moment but I had the same reaction with Allison. What's the point of your story? Hahahah! #theumbrellaacademy2."
'The Umbrella Academy' Season 2 released on July 31 and can be streamed on Netflix.
