The White Violin

1 Reggie.
Don't you look dapper? Well, I thought it was right to buy something special for the occasion.
As you requested.
I didn't realize that you felt up to playing.
I don't.
I want you to take it with you.
No, my love.
Please.
Find someone who'll love it as much as I have.
I can't leave you.
There must be another way.
There isn't.
I will die here, but you won't.
I won't allow it.
The world needs you, Reggie.

We need to get to safety outside the Academy.
Don't forget Mom! Yeah Pogo.

To go on a mission, Vanya, you have to have a power.
Vanya! What do you want? Just get out! Mom! - Where is she? - Mom! Mom! Diego! Diego! Diego! Diego! Holy shit.

Every one of you.

No smiles, eyes ahead.
- Quickly, now.
- Dad! Dad! Dad! No talking! Stand still.
Miss Vanya.
That's quite enough! Miss Vanya I understand how upset you are.
But I can assure you that none of your siblings bear any responsibility for what happened to you as a child.
Did you know? Your father discovered that you were capable of great things.
Much like your brothers and sister.
But your powers were too great.
He only wanted to protect you from yourself.
As well as your siblings.
Did you know? Yes, Miss Vanya.
I knew.
You okay? You okay? - Hey, you just saved my life, man.
- Okay.
Great.
Shit.

She's gone.
She's She's gone, okay? She's What do you wanna do? You wanna wanna walk away from this? - No.
- What about Pogo? - Just - He didn't make it.
What? Vanya killed him.
- But Vanya wouldn't - No, I saw it.
Just before we got out.
Mom.
Now Pogo.
Guys.
This is it.
The apocalypse is still on.
The world ends today.
I thought you said it was over.
I was wrong, okay? This newspaper, I found it in the future the day I got stuck.
- The headline hasn't changed.
- No, that doesn't mean anything.
The time could've been altered since that newspaper - came out this morning.
- You're not listening to me.
When I found it, I assumed this place came down along with everything else.
But here we are.
The Moon's still shining, the Earth is in one piece, but not the Academy.
- I'm confused.
- Then listen to me, you idiot! Vanya destroys the Academy before the apocalypse.
I thought Harold Jenkins was the cause, but he was the fuse.
Vanya is the bomb.
Vanya causes the apocalypse.
We have to find her.
We gotta go, now.
Regroup at the Super Star.
Go! Look at the two of you.
Given a one-day assignment to eliminate Number Five, and instead, you kill a tow truck driver, a cleaning lady, and a cop, burn down two buildings, and bring unwanted attention on yourselves and the Commission.
What's worse is Five is still alive, on the loose, and trying to stop the apocalypse.
Makes us look like a gang that can't shoot straight.
Now, maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture, but I think and this, it's just a suggestion but I do think an explanation of sorts is owing.
Five is not working alone.
He has backup.
His family.
You're saying that you both are no match for a litter of emotionally stunted siblings? I think what Cha-Cha means is there were certain un Hmm? Unexpected consequences from said family that required us to deviate from the original plan.
You know, we have an old saying at the Commission.
Of course, neither of you speak Yiddish.
Fine.
I'll translate.
It means "The eggs think they're smarter than the chicken.
" Do what you're told.
Hmm? Then we should have killed each other.
Come again? Both of us was sent a message from you to eliminate the other.
I never sent Oh.
Hm.
He's good.
He's good.
- Wait, I'm not following.
- Of course you're not.
I never sent those messages.
Five did.
They're fake.
To throw you off the scent.
Then you're not mad at us.
I'd like to believe that your commitment to your partnership led to a strategic choice not to kill each other.
So, in the spirit of that partnership, I'm giving you a new assignment, one that's not open to interpretation or discussion.
Protect Vanya Hargreeves at all costs.
- Then what? - Then you, Hazel, will be allowed to resign from the Commission and live out the remainder of your days with doughnut lady here, in the time period of your choosing.
Course, she'll remain under my protection until your assignment is complete.
And what do I get? A new partner.
Plus all prior offenses, fines, and infractions will be expunged from your record.
Failure to comply will result in the termination of all parties.
Cookies? Get out of the way, bitch! Look, I hate to be the one to say this, but everyone needs to prepare.
- For what? - To do whatever it takes to stop Vanya.
I - We may not have a choice, Allison.
- Bullshit.
- There's always options.
- Yeah, like what? I don't know.
Look, whatever we decide, we need to find Vanya.
And fast, okay? She could be anywhere.
Or here.
Look at this.
That's right.
Her concert is tonight.
Hello.
I hate to intrude, but my manager says if you're not gonna bowl, you gotta leave.
Whose turn is it? Oh, for We're the only ones capable of stopping this.
We have a responsibility to Dad.
To Dad? No, I've heard enough about He sacrificed everything to bring us back together.
I'm with Luther on this one.
We can't give her a chance to fight back.
There are billions of lives at stake.
We're past trying to save just one.
Hey, you know, guys, uh maybe I could help.
- Now is not the time.
- No, let him finish.
He saved my life today.
Really? - Is that true? - Yeah, yeah, I did take credit for it.
In fact, the real hero was Ben.
Today Listen.
Today, he punched me in the face.
And earlier at the house, he was the one who saved Diego's life, not me.
- You are unbelievable, Klaus.
- You want proof, is that it? All right.
I I'll give you proof.
All right, it's showtime, baby.
Catch! Is there any way to silence that voice in your head that screams out to be the center of attention? You know, I liked you a lot better before you got laid.
Which was a complete It It wasn't his fault, 'cause he was ridiculously high, right? And And the girl, she thought he was a furry - Stop! - Okay.
Allison, wait.
Excuse me! Excuse me, it's my son Kenny's birthday today, and Uh wouldn't your son be happier playing with kids his own age? Assuming it's okay with your two dads.
I would rather chew off my own foot.
Let's go, Kenny.
If I was going to date a man, you'd be the last man I would date.
You'd be lucky to get me.
How the hell did she find me? - May I? - Please.
She's good.
Jesus.
All right.
I'll be the first to admit things really got out of hand.
Punches were thrown.
Shots were fired.
- But I'm willin' to forgive and forget.
- How very kind of you.
Look, the Handler was right.
We had a chance to kill each other.
We were ordered to kill each other.
And we didn't.
That says somethin', right? You're willin' to throw away all that goodwill? Doesn't matter.
The Handler's offer isn't real.
Of course it is.
Verbal agreements are binding.
Check the handbook.
We've caused way too much trouble.
You notice something's missing? We don't have a briefcase.
She's leavin' us to die.
Look.
There's Vanya.
Your siblings may be on this mission longer than usual.
So as you wait, be prepared to do your studies alone.
Do you understand? Very well.
My studies this evening pertain to music.
I wonder if I could borrow it.
Take it and go.
It's beautiful, isn't it? Yes, it is, Vanya.
I will learn to play it.
I am going to be extraordinary.
Put your whole heart into it, dear, and I promise, one day, you will be.
Listen, we can't do this now.
I'm so sorry, I should never have slept with that girl uh, woman.
Uh, look I had just found out that Dad sent me to the Moon for nothing.
All right? And I just felt so lost and alone.
Klaus wasn't lying, I got drunk.
I mean really drunk.
Plus the pills.
You know, 'cause it was a rave, and I'd never been to a rave before, and Well, they're they're pretty amazing, actually He Hello? Hi, uh, Claire? Uh, yeah, this is your Uncle Luther.
Spaceboy! Yeah, yeah, uh Spaceboy.
I'm the one your mom told you stories about.
Yeah, yeah, I know all about you, too.
And you know, Claire, I've been wanting to meet you since the day you were born.
Uh, well, uh she's here, with me now, and she really wants to talk to you, Claire.
But But she can't, because uh she has a sore throat, but, uh Your mom wants me to tell you, Claire, uh, she she says that she loves you more than anything in the whole wide world.
- And she - No! Oh, shoot.
Um Where Um Wait, wait.
Hey.
Hey.
Uh, your mom says She says "I miss you.
I miss you every day that I'm not with you.
I know that I let you down, but I would do anything for you.
You make me wanna wake up each day.
And you're in my dreams every night.
You're the most important person in the world to me.
" That's, uh That's what your mom says.
Yeah.
Yeah, I I promise.
She'll be home soon.
Look.
Vanya's getting off.
This is where you get off.
You mother day to you - All right, where's Five? - He left.
- Oh, for the love of Where'd he go? - Didn't tell us.
Well, we're not waiting around for him.
The concert starts in 30 minutes.
- All right, so what's the plan? - Well, I think that, uh We go to the Icarus Theater.
That's a location, not a plan.
What? Is that all you got? Look, you wanna be Number One, fine, but you're gonna have to get us on the same page, because right now, we're all over the place.
You're right.
We need a plan.
Get down! Who the hell are these guys? Maybe they're here for Kenny's birthday! No, I'm pretty sure they're here for us! S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, hey S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Hey Keep on dancin' to the rock and roll On Saturday night Saturday night Dancin' to the rhythm With our heart and soul On Saturday night, Saturday night I, I, I, I, I just can't wait - They're blocking the exit! - So, what's the plan now, Luther? On the good ol' rock and roll The lanes! Let's go! Saturday night, Saturday night S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, hey S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, hey S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, hey - S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y, hey - Come on, let's go! Gonna dance with my baby Till the night is through On Saturday night Five, I've been waiting for you.
Tell her all the little things I'm gonna do You must really like doughnuts.
Help me! It's been a while.
- Three days.
- For you, maybe.
But for me, it's been a lot longer since I've seen those adorable little shorts.
Well, you've had time to heal.
Luckily, for both of us, time is the one thing my organization has an abundance of.
Got your message, by the way.
Nice packaging, but so much for Commission protocol.
There have been a lot of changes since you left the Commission.
You really did some damage.
The briefcases were all but destroyed, to say nothing of the highly trained personnel you killed.
After all, - what is an institution if not for - What do you want? To be happy.
To have a simple unfettered life, to do the work my superiors require.
But your being here, well, it complicates all that.
Billions of people are about to die tonight.
- You can change that.
- Tonight, tomorrow.
So little difference in the scheme of things.
Don't you remember the Commission's raison d'être? What's meant to be is meant to be, or, as I like to say, que será, será.
It's bullshit in any language.
Why did you call me here? I wanna offer you a choice.
Everyone's going to die tonight, but unlike the rest of the world, you have a way out.
You can abandon your family and skip ahead to the apocalypse, take a walkabout for a few decades, wondering if I'll come back and offer you a job again, or you can stay here, with your family, and die a horrible death.
While you weigh your options, just know your siblings are fighting for their lives without you.
You brought me here to pull me away.
It's been nice knowing you, Five.
Cheers! - - Wha Allison, I can't let you do that, all right? - She's beyond reasoning.
- You hear the music? It's started.
Do you honestly think she's gonna listen? After everything that's happened? We don't have time for this.
Okay.
You're using her as a distraction, aren't you? - Our best chance to incapacitate Vanya.
- Oh.
She'll thank us later.
- So, what's the plan? - Uh, you wait out front.
- What? - Yeah, you're the lookout.
The lookout? Back so soon? And here I thought you were the smart one.
How disappointing.
I'm sorry you had to see that.
If you want to change your mind about being with me, I understand.
Everyone has a past.
Move! Go, go, go, go, go, move! Oh! - She's stronger than expected.
- Yeah.
Yeah.
We're fine, thanks for asking.
Look, I almost lost you once, all right? I wasn't about to lose you again.
Well, so much for the element of surprise.
What else you got? No shit, Allison.
Tell us something we don't already know.
She's talking about the violin.
It's her lightning rod.
If we can take it from her and stop her from playing, we might have a shot.
What the hell happened to Klaus? He's supposed to be on lookout.
- Yeah, you surprised? - What's with all the lollygagging? Five, get down! - I didn't ask for cilantro.
- Do you hear gunfire? What? Oh, shit! - This is it, mofo.
Go time! Go time! - What about the gunfire? Come on, man, we're the damn lookouts! Five, what the I thought you bailed on us! I had an errand to run.
This is not good.
- You know these guys? - Yeah, I do.
And? Well we're screwed.
Guys, it's Cha-Cha! - It's Cha-Cha, she - Klaus! Get down! Get down! Oh, my God.
It's him.
Ben.
Now who's the lookout? Your girlfriend, Patch What did you like about her? She believed in people.
She always saw the good inside.
I'm sure she'll be proud to know that you're killing Hazel and Cha-Cha as a way to honor her memory.
Oh, welcome back.
Where were you? Honoring a memory.
So, how do you wanna end this thing? We surround her.
All right? We come at her from all angles.
So it's a suicide mission.
Yeah, but one of us could get through.
It's the only chance we've got.
- Are we all in? - Yeah.
All right.
Allison? Stage left.
Stage right.
You guys take the front.
I'm sorry.
There's no time, Allison.
If she finishes this concert, the world goes up in flames.
Now! Is she alive? - Yeah.
- She is? Yeah? - Oh, thank God.
- We did it.
We saved the world.
Oh, man.
Uh Guys? You see that big Moon rock coming towards us? That's not good.
So this is it, huh? So much for saving the world.
If only Sir Reginald could see us right now, huh? The Umbrella Academy.
A total failure.
At least we're together at the end.
As a family.
This doesn't have to be the end.
What? What are you saying, Five? I think I have a way outta here.
But you gotta trust me on this.
- Yeah, I don't think so.
- No.
Well, then, we might as well accept our fate, because in less than a minute, we're gonna be vaporized.
What's your idea, then? We use my ability to time travel.
But this time, I'll take you with me.
You can do that? I don't know.
I've never tried it before.
What's the worst that can happen? You're lookin' at it.
A 58-year-old man inside a child's body, so there's that.
- Oh, what the hell? I'm in.
- Yeah, whatever.
I'm in.
Me too.
Allison? - What about Ben? - Great, yeah, he's in.
Okay, great.
Luther, grab Vanya.
Wait, should we be taking her? I mean, if she's the cause of the apocalypse.
Isn't that like taking the bomb with us? The apocalypse will always happen and Vanya will always be the cause, unless we take her with us and fix her.
Ah! It's working! Hold on! It's gonna get messy!
