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?
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.
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.
Primrose Tales pilot: Driving Baron Samedi
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.
Whisper: *whispers* "You're going to feel a little pinch."
Samedi: "What? I didn't catch that.... JESUS H. CHRIST!!!!!"
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. :)
Really interesting. I didn’t know any of this.
Read The Making of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Fantastic book all around.
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?
@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.
Bless his heart...Mi6 please tell me whatever happened to Professor Joe Butcher!
…what? To political? :-)
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?
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.
