    Wasn't the only thing back.

    Thing the Zero-X design was taken from the ship that went to Mars in Thunderbirds Are Go and they've borrowed from the Space:1999 sound effects library again :)

    And there's the fun of stock footage - TB4 is sitting in the launch area where TB's 1 & 3 are yet somehow gets into the Pod to launch with TB2.

    Havoc captures Thunderbird 3 and The Hood doesn't even seem to want it.

    I was a bit annoyed that the last three eps since the Braman arc, where Brains dramatically pronounced:

    We'll build another Zero-X!! (to rescue a lost-in-space Jeff Tracy)

    Have just been regular rescues or scrapes, but we have at least had further character development in the shape of:

    Fuse saving Scott and the GDF guys as thanks for saving him, leaving them the loot he was after and lying to the Hood about it, hinting at a possible switch of loyalties at some point. This was slightly foreshadowed by Fuse showing concern for Gordon when they injured him in Signals.

    Well Brains did say it would take quite sometime for it to be built so he's probably beavering away somewhere getting things going.

    I predict we'll see it in action in the season finale.

    Yeah, I know, but given what he's building it FOR, I'd guess the boys would be at least checking in on it regularly.

    Though, it might explain why Scott and Virgil were doing their own maintenance on TB2 in Avalanche. Though not why MAX is free to do Alan's chores instead of assisting Brains.

    This show has been terrible when it comes to its schedule. I bet it has damaged its ratings.

    and probably doesn't bode well for a fourth series.

    IIIRC the licence has switched companies, with the new range due in 2020, and the old ones withdrawn.

    So it’s back, with FAB2 being rather superfluous

    As places for a Penny/Gordon kiss go, though, it wasn't too shabby. :)

    Well, if that is it it's a nice enough ending, though I had expected Clarence to really help out, not just apologise and return to type...
