Luther reveals that their dad become more paranoid, and decided to use the surveillance system again. Confused about what happened, they both confront Grace in the kitchen.

He invites her to dinner when Allison arrives. He recognizes Vanya's more famous sister as a movie-star and member of the Umbrella Academy, then asks if Vanya was involved.
