[S3E5] The Beach

Episode 5 of Umbrella Academy Season 3 starts with Klaus waking up in a black and white world, save for shades of yellow which is a nice touch. In this perceived version of purgatory, Klaus wanders on to a strange doorway on the beach, which opens up to show a young Klaus with Reginald, who continues to experiment on him.

[S3E5] The Beach


Zuko, Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee are sent on vacation to Lo and Li's beach house on Ember Island while Fire Lord Ozai holds restricted meetings with his advisers. Ty Lee is excited, but Zuko expresses his displeasure of being sent away on a forced vacation, stating that he feels like he is being treated as a child. The boat pulls into the small port, and Lo and Li greet the teenagers. All of them, except for Ty Lee, express their disdain at their beach house. According to Mai, the pink seashell bedspread looked like "the beach threw up all over [it]." The sisters urge the teenagers to give Ember Island a chance, as the beach has a special way of smoothing even the most jagged edges and revealing one's true self.

Zuko, Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee go down to the beach to have some fun. Azula nastily crushes a kid's sandcastle, while Ty Lee soon finds herself being approached by several boys, and she ends up being shaded and fanned by them. Zuko makes several unsuccessful attempts at impressing Mai with pretty seashells and ice cream. Azula pulls the group into a game of kuai ball with some other teens, plotting their strategy as if plotting a battle. Using their various skills, they easily overwhelm their opponents. Azula gets carried away, setting the net on fire and sinisterly gloating as if she has just crushed an enemy. Their game arouses the attention of two boys named Chan and Ruon-Jian, who invite Ty Lee and Mai to a party; after some persuasion, they reluctantly invite Zuko and Azula as well. Azula makes a point of not revealing her or her brother's royal identity; she explains that she wants to see what it is like to be a normal person for a change.

Azula finds Zuko and tells him to come to the beach with her. Zuko tries to reconcile with Mai, but she is still cold toward him. Zuko burns his family's painting to help kindle fire to keep them warm, prompting Ty Lee to wonders out loud why he would burn something so precious. He snaps at her to mind her own business and that she does not understand him. When Mai comes to the defense of her friend, ordering Zuko to leave her alone, Zuko starts to mock Ty Lee and calls her a circus freak. As Ty Lee bursts out into tears, Azula laughs, while Ty Lee tearfully reveals that she has six sisters exactly like her and joined the circus to mark herself as a unique individual. She snaps back that being called a circus freak is a compliment. Mai says that her lack of attention while growing up is the reason Ty Lee wants so much of it now. Continuing to critique Ty Lee's attention-craving issues, the acrobat turns on Mai, remarking that, despite Mai having been an only child for most of her life and receiving a lot of attention, she still has a "dingy, pasty, gray" aura.

Finally understanding what bothers Zuko so much, Mai returns to his side and says that the one thing she cares about is him and kisses him once again. They turn to the last member of the group; reluctantly, Azula delves into her own past and says that her mother thought she was a monster. Azula admits that she was correct in thinking so, but that it still hurt to hear her own mother say so. With all their secrets out in the open, the heaviness between the four seems to vanish. Ty Lee says she will remember this night forever, and that Lo and Li were right about the beach's ability to reveal people's true selves. She also states that she feels all 'smoothed'.

Lincoln buys some supplies at a dive shop, and then goes with Sofia to the beach, not far from the prison gates, where he buries four small scuba tanks. A getaway for himself, Michael, Sofia and Whistler. International waters are 12 miles off the coast. Lincoln and Sofia start to trust each other.
