So we know that the Ben the siblings remember isn't the Ben we see on screen after having been around Klaus for over a decade. He isn't a perfect little angel-in fact he has quite a mouth on him and his sass is legendary. Also, we kind of assume Sparrow!Ben is going to be an asshole based on the little bit we've seen so far which will be quite jarring to the sibs. But what if he's actually very similar to the Ben we already know? And what if the sibs are horrified and Klaus is like eh, same old?
Interesting! Yeah, I do hope there’s gonna be more to it than just ‘the Sparrows, including Ben, are evil’, and I’m pretty sure there will be more to it. It wasn’t that simple with the Umbrellas and it wasn’t that simple with Lila. Also, I think the contrast between Klaus’ reaction to Ben compared to the rest of the siblings will be interesting

I was just speculating, what if the reason for their eyes being covered was for more than just concealing their identity? I mean, it's not as though "the famous Umbrella Academy" were particularly secretive in their endeavours so perhaps there is more to it?
There are plenty of examples of superheroes that have identity concealing masks that leave their eyes visible eg The Flash, Captain America and certain interpretations of Batman etc if that is the purpose of their masks. Anyway, just a thought...
Anyway, all I was thinking is that their eyes are completely covered so that Reginald could forget that they are merely children -it dehumanised them.

i thought the umbrella academy couldn’t get any more relatable in terms of actually understanding how siblings act but then season two comes along with shit like:
“I’m going to BEAT you and not the way you like it”
“cHiLDrEn iN tHe bAcK” and then klaus just fucking falling over the seat.
klaus showing up to allison’s house seeing a body and immediately going “are we burning or burying”
five being So Done with Luther all season but still pushing him out of the way from the bricks falling
“Luther sniffs dad’s underwear”
“You have had your possession privileges REVOKED”
and then ben going still worth it
everyone mentally rolling their eyes when diego starts talking about how he likes a girl (don’t @ me you know they were)
five pretending not to care about them but actually caring a lot™
the entire part where they’re lifting the tractor. diegos like fucking finally and luthers like we can leave you here would you like that.
diego forgiving vanya in less than a minute
the entire scene with klaus allison and vanya
everyone being like ok i understand why you would want to kill them but i still can’t let you
luthers forced smile at strangers after five yells “IM THE DADDY HERE” literally what i do when one of my brothers does something stupid in public
luther trying to keep the peace between the fives is just a whole ass mood tbh
klaus going over the ‘possession ground rules’ with ben
“klaus you’re so FILTHY”
Ben and klaus’s little piss fight on the side of the road
“you look like antonio banderas with the long hair”
diego and luther when five shows up covered in blood
but we didn’t kill the comission! yeah that entire conversation especially “Five what did you do?”
