Eagle-eyed The Umbrella Academy viewers noticed that as Five went to say goodbye to her, Dolores appeared to move in a way that ordinary mannequins just do not.
The relationship has so far be seen as charming and cute, but could this new development suggest there is something more than meets the eye which could put innocent Five’s life in danger?
The Umbrella Academy fans are certainly mystified as to what is going, with one Twitter user saying: “I have a theory. What if Dolores is actually a real person stuck in a mannequin and Five is the only one she can actually talk to??”
It really would not be beyond the realms of possibly for this to happen on a show that has shocked and gripped fans since its release last month.
Five actor Aidan Gallagher has previously admitted he would love for Dolores to start speaking and develop the relationship between the two.
He told Entertainment Weekly: “It was definitely one of the things I looked forward to because I had a feeling they might expand on it, and I wanted to play around with how his trauma would affect the relationship between the two of them.
“I would make dialogue for her. He would be having a real interaction with her, a real conversation, and for that he needs a real character.
“So Five is playing the part of Dolores. That is a fun dynamic that I was definitely looking forward to shooting.”
Is he hinting that Dolores will come to life in order to develop Five’s character for future seasons?
The seemingly one-way relationship blossomed through Five’s ability to move through time, travelling 50 years into the future and meeting Dolores.
Here, he witnessed the apocalypse and became trapped in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
What better place to find a love interest?
He became obsessed with Dolores and took her everywhere with him, until he had to say goodbye when he returns to the present.
Dolores is not the first love interest being speculated about Five, however.
It has been suggested Vanya Hargreeves’s (played by Ellen Page) first love interest was with her sibling Five.
Fans have picked up on the potential romance, with one Twitter user saying: “When you realise that Vanya made sandwiches for five every night because she secretly had feelings for him… (crying emoji and shocked face emoji).”
Replying to another fan’s theory, actor Gallagher replied: “Love this. They had a crush but now it’s far too late.”
The speculation was sparked by Vanya keeping the porch light on and making sandwiches for him after he disappeared.
He also went on to confirm that Five and Vanya were not in fact blood siblings because the family was constructed from different families from around the world.
So maybe the romance is not out of the question?
One thing is for sure and it is Five loves to make confusing relationships that keep fans guessing.
The Umbrella Academy is available on Netflix.
