Through the Course of the Umbrella Academy We See Elliot Page’s Journey!

The third season of The Umbrella Academy has landed on Netflix, with all ten episodes available at once for your time-bending enjoyment.

The new season will not only introduce Viktor to fans all around the world but will also show what happened when the Hargreeves siblings clashed with the newly created Sparrow Academy in this new alternate reality (Elliot Page).

I feel honored to be writing this,’ Elliot, who starred in the films Juno and Inception, said in a statement announcing his transition to female in December of 2020. That you’re here, obviously. To have reached this point in my life is a great accomplishment.

When the new episodes of The Umbrella Academy began airing, it was revealed that Elliot, who had previously played Vanya, would be introduced as Viktor.

In the second episode of Season 3, viewers were introduced to Viktor’s name for the first time.

In episode two, Vanya (as he is still known) purchases a book at Hotel Obsidian that tells the story of the 1960s adventures of the Hargreeves siblings, including how they were erroneously linked to the killing of the President John F. Kennedy and dubbed “The Kennedy Six.”

Vanya learned that his former flame Sissy (Marin Ireland) died in 1989 under an assumed name, 20 years after they had last seen each other.

Sissy says in a voiceover, “You don’t even notice the box that you’re in until someone comes along and lets you out,” and then Vanya goes to the barbershop to get a haircut.

After Diego incorrectly calls him “Vanya,” they track down Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Diego (David Castaneda), and Five (Aidan Gallagher), and reveal his real name to be Viktor.

In response to Diego’s question, “Who’s Viktor?” Viktor says, “I am. This is my true nature. It was after a considerable wait that the following was said. Doe, does that present a problem for anybody?

“Nah, I can handle it,” As Diego chimes in, Klaus chimes in, “Yeah me too.” Cool.’

Five then says, “Truly glad for you Viktor,” before returning to their earlier discussion of the Sparrow Academy.

Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Viktor’s sister, expresses shock at learning the truth and says she can’t believe she “never realized” before.

Viktor explains, “You couldn’t have known since I didn’t entirely.”

Being with Sissy, for some reason, freed up a part of me. It proved to me that I couldn’t escape my true identity if I tried to conceal it. After she passed away, I realized there was no way I could go on living in that confinement. I won’t.’

While walking with Allison, Viktor comments that he used to despise gazing at his reflection but can now recognize himself in the reflection.

I appreciate your confidence in me. Viktor, you belong here; we’re related. Allison assures him, “There is absolutely nothing you could do to make me love you any less.”

After being called Vanya by Diego, Luther (Tom Hopper) finally learns that Viktor has been kidnapped. Luther’s initial reaction is one of surprise: “What else did I miss when I was kidnapped?”

Since becoming Viktor is a “very huge affair,” he later asks Diego whether they should make a “formal gesture” to “welcome him as brothers.”

Diego, though, begs him not to “be weird” since they should “honor the occasion” in some way, as Luther insists they must.

Diego tells Viktor about Luther’s plan, and Luther wants to organize a big foolish party for Viktor so he can feel loved. How much love do you feel?

Among the students of The Umbrella Academy are Aidan Gallagher, Emmy Raver-Lampman, and Elliot Page.

Viktor responds, “Yeah, I do,” and Diego asks if they can get back to rescuing the world while Luther complements Viktor on his new hairstyle.

Since the manner in which Elliot will be introduced as Viktor remained secret until now, the unquestioning acceptance of Viktor by Elliot’s family is bound to tug at many heartstrings.

As a great demonstration of how easily someone may be accepted by their loved ones after coming out as trans, their reaction to the announcement was soon followed by a return to the mission at hand.
