While Reginald Hargreeves remains as cold-blooded as ever in his approach to parenting, he’s not committing the worst act of the season. Surprisingly, that honor goes to Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman). This is a shocking turn of events as Allison was previously a stable voice of reason among the Umbrellas. After all, she was the one who gave Viktor hope, even after his vocal cords were severed.
But Allison’s sins are varied and far-reaching in Season 3. Their villainous arc begins almost immediately as the siblings realize they have once again started a chain of events destined to lead to disaster. After changing history in 1963, they return and find the present they once knew no longer existed. For Allison, this is a particularly painful turn of events. She left the ’60s and a husband who loved her, only to find the Umbrellas’ actions created a time paradox. The present is a reality neither of them were ever born in, meaning Allison’s daughter Claire does not exist. It is this incalculable loss that sends Allison down her darkest path.
