It was very hard after all this time to suddenly get the part 2 trailer for season 3 and how it would then start connecting all the dots up for what had been building up since the first episode from season 1 on Easter weekend in 2015.
Because we are now at a point where the biggest question could be answered that has been asked since ring of fire part 1 and part 2 and that is simply this.... What is the status of Jeff Tracy?
As I stated in the video the trailer gives away surprisingly a lot of details for a mere 60 second trailer, 1 with the addition of Bremen being introduced to this generation of Thunderbirds. Bremen was a mechanical robots from the original series for all intents and purposes as an experimental assistant that brains was always making upgrades and doing his own research on. I suppose in some weird where you could make the argument that he was the prototype to Max. Mechanical assistant xperimental.
One of my subscribers had made the point of saying that Thunderbird 4's launch sequence from Tracy Island seemed very reminiscent of how stingray went through her launch sequence in the 1964 Super Marionation series. As we can clearly see Thunderbird for going down a launch tunnel.
Brains goes on to say that Bremen had been transmitting a repetitive SOS signal that was being relayed from someone else and brings then says "could he still be alive?" which to me that was all the earmarks of making reference to Jeff Tracy.
The patriarch of the Tracy brothers and the head of international rescue has had his absence heavily felt since the series was introduced 4 years ago for the first few episodes they would make comments what would Dad do, how they would miss him, and in some recent episodes of season 3 they would comment some of the drills that he would make them do including making reference to his flamenco shirt.
The other aspect that this season will likely answer is if the possibility becomes a reality that Jeff is still alive then how will he fit back into the fold in international rescue?
My theory is simply this: I think Jeff will observe from the sidelines because there is no clear indication of what kind of condition is in so will therefore just be an observant what he studies at Scott's performance and probably evaluating his eldest son's quality of leadership and will more than likely get a good idea of how he has handled sayings during his absence.
I do not believe for one second that this will be the final season of Thunderbirds Are Go. I do recognise that for some situations The Chase is more exciting then the actual end. But to have a situation where they reunite with their father only to see the series end would be both exciting and disappointing at the same time. I say this, because there are multiple scenarios and potential stories that could be told for future Seasons of how Jeff could retake control of his organisation or maybe even see Jeff go out on missions with them.
That, and I'm sure the audience would like to get acquainted with this Generations version of Jeff as much as the characters on the show.
That is what I would like to happen. But more often than not... It will likely go the way of what we don't want to happen.
