    @Scaramanga1974 That would have been classic. Almost like the movie Twins. Comedy abounds.

    Okay time for another whatever happened to for us to consider. At the end of LALD we are shown the front of the train and there sits Baron Samedi. So my dear Mi6 agents...whatever happened to him? Is he still appearing in a hotel show in San Monique? Or is he helping with the graveyard ceremonies seen with agent and Solitaire?

    Whatever happened to Baron Samedi?

    Whatever happened to Baron Samedi?

    Became a famous television magician, often opening for such stars as Professor Joe Butcher and Byron Lee and the Dragonaires.

    Unfortunately got fired by his producer Elliot Carver after accidentally killing one of the drummers from Wings during one of his "snake in the coffin" tricks.

    He fell off the train and died instantaneously.

    Oh my gosh be careful what you wish for.

    For Baron Samedi, he really does live forever. So he goes on to antagonize more folks and continue with the showy mischief-making, surely. Stand-up comedian who follows unlucky guests to their doom. Restaurant waiter vindictive over tips. Uber driver with an opening charm mining for weaknesses.

    Baron Samedi killed James Bond and took his place at MI6 after undergoing a gene therapy course in Cuba. Every subsequent Bond film after LALD actually stars Samedi as Bond, so the code name theory is accurate.

    One may wonder how Samedi was able to sit on the front of the speeding train so gracefully without falling off.

    This was explained in a deleted scene from the film where the big bad Baron rescued Whisper from the monorail capsule. Fuelled with rage from the indignity of it all, Whisper shoved a sweeping brush right up Samedi’s rear end and attached him firmly to the front of the train.

    Unable to extricate himself from the unfortunate predicament, Baron Samedi - the man who cannot die - is doomed to spend all eternity riding on the front of that train, becoming a popular tourist attraction in the area.

    It is said his maniacal laughter can be heard in the dead of night for miles around.

    @Max_The_Parrot, that´s excellent! I had something eternal in mind too, but it is outshone by your suggestion in every regard :-))!

    Samedi: "What? I didn't catch that.... JESUS H. CHRIST!!!!!"

    The ticket controller threw him off at the next station, and he got a heavy fine.

    Bravo sir! Great post. I forgot about the dialogue from the act... "The man who cannot die" LOL!

    I picture him leading a quiet life in San Monique entering the tourists. When he encounters one that reminds him of Bond or Solitaire he torments and kills them with a coffin of snakes. :)

    Richard Maibaum had intended to bring back Irma Bunt in Diamonds Are Forever and kill her off in the pre-credits sequence.

    One of his treatments opened with Bond at a small cottage, still in mourning for Tracy. Bond goes riding on a motorcycle as "We Have all the Time in the World" plays on the soundtrack. A parachutist descends in his path and introduces herself as Tiffany Case. A Land Rover approaches, presumably to pick up Tiffany, but veers toward Bond, who gets sideswiped and knocked to the ground. The driver pulls out a pistol but Bond karate chops it away. He picks it up and fires at the fleeing vehicle, which crashes. Bond examines the ejected body of the driver and realizes it's Irma Bunt, who is carrying a bag of diamonds...Cue the title sequence.

    Ilse Steppat died on December 22, 1969 which put a stop to her reappearance in any Bond film. Though she could have conceivably been recast, just like Blofeld, the producers decided DAF would not explicitly follow up on the events of OHMSS, especially after Mankiewicz took over scripting. The film was designed so that anyone who'd skipped Lazenby's film wouldn't feel he'd missed anything.

    As for fan theories about what happened to her--well, I would like to believe she traveled back to Japan with Blofeld and to help him open a garden of death...

    But since Blofeld turned into Charles Gray in the next film, perhaps he renounced his heterosexuality and fed poor Irma to a pool of piranhas.

    Really interesting. I didn’t know any of this.

    Good stuff! I like the creativity of this thread. Lets jump to another character from the earlier films.

    They were a dynamic duo, Bambi and Thumper were female henchwomen before it was in vogue. They crossed paths with Bond in Willard Whyte's summer home. Last seen gasping for air in the pool. One assumes they were placed in jail. But beating up a British agent isn't a life sentence.

    Did they continue in their henchwoman ways? Take their skills as gymnasts to athletic competition? Did they stay together or go their separate ways? Lots of possibilities for these two...so Mi6 whatever happened to Bambi and Thumper?

    They both settle down with their spouses and raise their kids. Thumper has four. Bambi gives birth to twins and becomes Princess of the forest.

    hahahahah!

    @Thunderfinger is this a show on Disney+? :)

    I always wondered if they were a couple like Wint and Kidd or just friends? LOL! I would expect them to be hired by another millionaire as protection.

    Okay lets try another survivor of a Bond adventure! In LTK this character was last seen on foot running from the Isthmus compound of Franz Sanchez. Professor Joe Butcher was running his religious show as a front to Sanchez. Whatever happened to Professor Joe? Did he take up being a televangelist again? Did he stay in Isthmus or did he flee to another country?

    Bless his heart...Mi6 please tell me whatever happened to Professor Joe Butcher!

    Joe Butcher ran for president in 1992 and gained a lot of support, but had to bow out after death threats from George Bush.

    Joe Butcher then suddenly saw the light, decided that he needed a job that was more moral on the ethical scale than being a Televangelist, so he took his proceeds from the drug scam and bought himself a chain of brothels. Thanks to generous payoffs to regional politicians, he lived happily ever after.

    So he knew he'd only be president for life!

    I know – for an absolute fact – that Joe Butcher is still on TV and he still has his mega church. Only now, he has his own cable network.

    …what? To political? :-)

    Professor Joe continued to write insightful works of literature about the mystical power of the cone, and even invited one lucky fan to his new meditation chamber - soundproofed of course, so nothing could disturb him personally signing their book!:

    Wow that's awesome find. I didn't know that Professor Joe was so devoted to his craft. I wonder if he still has time for those small town ladies with satchels full of money? LOL!

    Okay lets dive into the first film that brought Bond to the BIG screen! DN had a few characters who lived to see another day. I am thinking of one Ms. Taro. She didn't want her nails messed and would have preferred staying in and cooking for Bond. Last seen in a police car although I am not sure what laws were broken by her.

    Lets figure out what ever happened to the delightful and attractive Ms. Taro? Did she continue to work for S.P.E.C.T.R.E or freelance? Did she return to administrative work?

    So many questions Mi6...what ever happened to Ms. Taro?

    The lovely Miss Taro smoked the same Craven 'A' cigarettes as Mr Jones (seen on her coffee table in the film), so I'd wager she, too, would have slyly bitten into one that's cyanide-laced, rather than talk. Who puts that sort of scare into people?

    Sorry I missed out the last couple of rounds, I’m not quick enough! Fun idea for a topic though @thedove I’m enjoying reading it!

    I did hear that Miss Taro managed to get off with a caution after showing ‘great remorse’ for her actions. Realising it was a close call, she decided to leave a life of crime behind and make a fresh start. Making the short hop over the Caribbean Sea to San Monique, she soon became good friends with the island’s enigmatic High Priestess, Solitaire, and the pair set up a little seafront shop called Taro’s Tarots.
