Hey Blackno1! I'm a huge Halford fan too!

Anyway....that could indicate....what?......some people killed the Federation guards then Avon fired last?.....or Avon died last ????

I'm confused....

The episode was written in such a way that if it did go to a fifth season, anyone could be alive or dead except Blake. That way they would have an easy write in depending on which actors were available. Blake was an exception because Gareth Thomas said he didn't want any more comebacks and that he would only be in the episode if he was clearly shown to die. Gareth has since said that he'd quite happily go back to the role for, say, a radio play.

There has also been quite a bit of fanfic that has found ways for even Blake to survive, the Blake we saw being the missing clone being an obvious example. Others include that the base must have had medical facilities and he was only shot in the gut.

Blake is quite a complex story and there are many questions unanwered.

Why was ORAC sending out a beacon signal....to who?


As Stated Avon Was Trying too Attract A Flier So He Could Steal It, He Used Dayna Soolin & Vila As Bait too Lure The Flier Using His Destress Beacon... Hence Orac's "They Came to Investigate My Distress Beacon"

Quote:
Why did the gunships attack Scoprio?


Blake & Deva Had Both Stated That Law & Order Was Returning to The Planet, So The Planet Had Set Up Blockades too Stop Smuglers, They Hardly Have Time For A Radio Message "Excuse Me Please Are You Smuglers?" No It's Just Shoot Down Any Ship That Doesn't Have Clerance.

Quote:
Why didn't Blake tell tarrant what was really going on, he knew who he was?


We Know This, Blake Was Doing His Bounty Routine, We'd Just Seen This With Arlen.

Quote:
Why were so many flyers entering the control centre?


We Don't Know This For Sure, All We're Told Is Fliers Have Sections They Stick too, It's Quite Possible They Come In & Refuel At Certain Times.

Quote:
Why did Avon hide ORAC before entering?


This One I Don't Understand, It Would Have Been Hard (Not Impossible) too Do The Scene Perfectly With Him In It, Maybe The Beep Considered If They Did A Fifth Season With Orac In, People Would Have Wondered Why The Federation Didn't Pick Him Up, So They Wrote Him Out The Scene With The Excuse Next Season Avon Left Him In The Flier or Something.

Quote:
So many questions....


The Other One Asked of Course Is Why Didn't Blake Tell Avon Straight Away... That's Also Easy...

We Know Blake, He Has This School-Teacher Like Personality, He Says Something You Follow It, He Doesn't Like Explaining Himself, & Expects You too Follow Him Blindly. Of Course We Know Avon Doesn't Do Anything Blindly.

There are so many post GP fanfics around that they have their own website.
Good stories, too.

Many Speculation Into Tarrant & Blake... This Line Interests Me...

"But as tests go, isn't THAT" [indicates Blake's gun, which is beside him] "and THIS" [holds up pouch] "a bit obvious?" [tosses pouch back; Blake catches it]

Did Tarrant Think Blake Was Testing Him, But Blake Played It too Well & This Lead to Tarrant's Firm Beliefs Blake Had Set Him Up?

Tarrant saw through Blake's first little test, so Blake had to push it a bit further with the next one...

The end of this episode shows that, there at least, the story is free from the all too common "stormtrooper effect"; there, a squad of Federation troopers corner Avon and his followers and summarily efficiently demolish them in a few shots with their standard issue paraguns.

I read that the intention was to make a 5th series, where of Avon and his followers, those would survive, whose actors had decided to stay into the 5th series.

Much fan fiction found a way to keep them all alive, such as giving paraguns a stun mode.

And no Servalan either, even though it seemed inevitable she would be there.

That was a contractual thing with Jacqueline Pearce. Her contract was only for so many episodes in the fourth season, and she'd used them all up and they didn't have the budget to pay her for another episode.

The ending of this does`nt make a lot of sense , too rushed , just why would Avon shoot Blake that quickly after searching for him for so long ? Compare it to the Avon / Blake thing at the end of Terminal ! Then again Avon was pretty bonkers by this stage was`nt he ?

I hate the fact that Servalan was not there in the end - it shows the BBC's lack of interest in the show. Surely they could have paid her a bit more to appear in the last episode.

They could have at least scraped up enough to pay her for the use of her voice.A line or two.

Avon was certainly a thumb short of a mitten by this stage.

But he thought that Blake had betrayed him 'Have YOU betrayed ME?' - Blake's response doesn't help - 'I set all this up!' Remember that by this stage Avon had been betrayed by Anna Grant and recently by Zukon. He had been prepared to push Vila out of the shuttle. He killed Dr Paxton and then said 'Who?' He thought the one person he could trust had betrayed him, therefore he shot him - three times.

Except Avon's behaviour which is rational for a great deal of series 4 (of course he had been betrayed by Zukon, the 'un-real' Anna, the 'un-real' Blake etc etc, but he shows surprising resilience and looking-after-number-one throughout season 4. I was always surprised at his really really emotional outburst on GP and his shoot first ask questions later approach, a real tack-on by the writer to assure a tragic ending me thinks. Even in this episode Avon says he would Blake to 'rot' on GP if his alliance from 'Warlord' had worked. It is an odd reaction unless Avon is a quick-trigger-psychopath.
