This article, “who is Sloane,” contains spoilers regarding the Netflix series The Umbrella Academy season 3.
The kindest member of the Sparrow Academy, Sloane is also their most rounded character. She strikes up a romance with Luther and fights with the gang all the way to the bitter end. This Sparrow has much more depth and potential to her than the other vindictive members. But who actually is Sloane?
Who is Sloane in The Umbrella Academy season 3?
Sloane Hargreeves is Sparrow Number five, played by Genesis Rodriguez. Her abilities include the power to make objects and herself levitate. She can control these objects and is able to move them at her will. This allows her to fly and cause others to levitate also. Sloane’s power is one of the most versatile and impressive of the Sparrows. She survives to the end of the show and is pivotal in the gang’s plan to eradicate the Kugelblitz, which does work for a little while.
She secretly hates being a part of The Sparrow Academy, disliking her fellow siblings and all that they stand for. They are quite the detestable bunch, and I can imagine that their hate-filled antics become tiring quickly. Sloane wishes to escape the confines of the Academy and yearns to be free. She wishes to leave the group and start a new life with her lover Luther. Although things don’t go according to plan, and the apocalypse gets in the way of their dreams.
It is an adorable partnership between Luther and Sloane, with their romance being a highlight of the series. They meet for the first time when fighting as warring Academies, but they get to know each other more personally when Luther is taken hostage. As a captive, Sloane and Luther hang out. She gives him a tour of the Academy, and they become familiar very quickly. The two eventually kiss and spend the night together. Sloane even uses her special powers in the bedroom.
The couple do, however, fall out when Lester kills Jayme and Alphonso. She struggles to decide whether Luther can be trusted or not. Luther tries his best to comfort Sloane, stating he didn’t know, yet he has his own reservations with her. The relationship manages to surpass this sore point, and the couple decide to wed as the world comes to an end. It makes for a cute and cinematic wedding, with the couple clearly in love. This makes the finale even more heart-breaking. In the final scenes, the universe is reset, and a new timeline emerges. The whole gang is reunited, but Sloane is nowhere to be seen. Luther fears the worse and rushes off, trying to find her. Hopefully, season four would explore this burning cliff-hanger and reunite the couple.
