The following story contains spoilers for story developments in The Umbrella Academy Season 3.
Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy starts out with a lot of questions. The first one being: where are we? When we last left our superhero family, they finally found a way to jump out of the 1960s and into the present day. The only problem? They’re no longer Reginald Hargreeves’ children. In fact, Hargreeves chose a whole new set of babies to raise instead of The Umbrella Academy since they bothered him so much when they met him in the 60s.
So we know we’re in some sort of present time… just not the present time we expected. With that established, the group tries to figure out how they can return to their own timeline and put the world back to the way it was, or at least find some comfort in the reality they’re in. But in the midst of the gang’s interfamily drama, the show teases a new character tracking the Umbrella Academy.
We don’t know much about him to begin with, and he merely has various accessories with his name, Lester Pocket, on them. He’s an old guy who listens to isolated sounds on his headphones (the buzzing of bees, or just the wind). So, who is this guy? Well, considering the entire show is already out on Netflix, you could just watch and find out. But if you’re really curious, you can read on. Just be warned… MAJOR spoilers are up ahead. Scroll on if you really want to find out right away.
Who Is Lester Pocket in The Umbrella Academy Season 3?
MAJOR SPOILER WARNING
Lester Pocket is actually Harlan from Season 2. Remember him? When Viktor went back in time to the 1960’s, he met Sissy, a housewife and mother of Harlan. When Harlan drowns in a lake, Viktor saves him by transferring some of his power to Harlan. By the end of the season, though, it’s clear Harlan can’t contain his power the same way Viktor can.
Viktor appears to remove Harlan’s powers at the end of Season 2, but as we find out in Season 3, that isn’t the case. Now that we’re back in the present, Harlan is back to find Viktor and finally get some answers on everything that happened between then and now.
So that’s who Lester Pocket is. But seriously, you should just watch the show. We didn’t tell you everything that goes down with Harlan, so there’s still surprises left for you to see.
