I don’t know about you, but the relationship between Diego Hargreeves and Lila Pitts quickly became one of my favorite parts of The Umbrella Academy season 2. Actors David Castañeda and Ritu Arya have undeniable chemistry and now that we know Lila is for sure returning in The Umbrella Academy season 3, fans are eager to see what happens between them.
Spoilers ahead for The Umbrella Academy season 3
Lila returns pretty quickly in the third season and she brings a shocking surprise with her: Stanley (Javon “Wanna” Walton), who she claims is hers and Diego’s son. Understandably, Diego is shocked. Even more so when Lila drops Stan off and leaves.
Of course, that doesn’t last long with the Kugelblitz and the end of the universe brewing. Diego and Lila soon find themselves paired together again as they take on this new threat. But what happens between them on a romantic level?
The Umbrella Academy season 3: Diego and Lila relationship update
The third season is amazing for fans of Diego and Lila’s relationship. We find out that while Lila was zapping around the world to places like East Berlin, she couldn’t stop thinking about Diego. Ultimately, Lila borrows Stan from a friend of hers (he’s not really her son), so she has an excuse to see Diego and test his fatherhood abilities.
By the end of the season, we find out that Lila is actually pregnant with Diego’s kid. They work things out and their relationship becomes stronger than ever. Lila even tells Diego she loves him and there is plenty of kissing, intimacy, team-ups, flirting and adorable banter between them all season long.
At the very end of the third season, Lila and Diego walk away from Hotel Oblivion together to live their lives (now powerless). It’ll be interesting to see what happens between them in the future if the show gets renewed and what their lives are like as a family unit, complete with child.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 is now streaming on Netflix.
