The second season of The Umbrella Academy was released on Netflix on Friday, with many fans desperate to know what happens to Dave.

Although he’s not one of billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves’ “children”, Dave quickly became involved in one of Season One’s major plots.

However his fate appeared to be tragic, with the character being killed in the Vietnam War during Klaus’ one-year spent there.

But does that mean he can’t reappear in the new episodes? Or will viewers get to see more of Dave and Klaus’ relationship? Spoilers ahead…

Who is Dave in The Umbrella Academy? What happened to him in season one?

Viewers met Dave, played by Cody Ray Thompson, in season one as main character Klaus Hargreeves’ love interest.

Dave was first mentioned during a chat Klaus, played by Robert Sheehan, had with his brother Diego while trying to get clean from drugs. 

Klaus revealed that he met his boyfriend after time travelling to the Vietnam War and it quickly becomes clear Klaus was besotted with him.

During episode six he says: “He was kind, strong, vulnerable, and beautiful. And I was foolish enough to follow him all the way to the front line.”

Tragically Dave was shot during battle and although Klaus tried to save him, it was too late.

Does Klaus find his boyfriend in Season Two?

  • Yes, but not know fans thought he would. Instead of meeting in the afterlife, Dave and Klaus reconnect in the past.

Although Dave died in the first season, fans long theorised the character could pop up again in the afterlife.

However it appears that Dave is in fact back in the storyline – but from before he enlists for a tour in Vietnam, reports The Cinemaholic.

Season Two of the show starts in 1960 with Klaus, who has started a cult, determined to stop his partner from enlisting and therefore saving his life.

IT’S GONE VIRAL: Have Alondra Dressy and Benny Soliven split up?

The pair end up meeting but it doesn’t go well. Despite this, Dave later apologises and reveals despite Klaus’ efforts he’s already signed up for war.

By this point it appears Dave in the Umbrella Academy is destined to die, but things could still change.

Fans have to remember that any change to the past can impact the future so Dave’s ending, which was seen in season 1, could still change yet again.

What else do we know about season two of the Netflix series?

This season starts in 1960 and has will feature the Kennedy assassination and the Civil Rights Movements in its plot.

The show will also show how character Luther , played by Tom Hopper, will start to see Five, Aidan Gallagher, as a “father figure”, reports MailOnline.

Emmy Raver-Lampman’s Allison will also be forced to deal with living in Jim Crow-era Texas while Ellen Page’s Vanya has amnesia.
