The Final Solution Early Days


Derek and Den are at the Sodor Dieselworks. Den explains that Derek's parts should have arrived a while ago, but Derek says he doesn't mind the wait and has enjoyed his time with Den. That night, Simon and some members of the Blockade Committe arrive. Derek mistakes them for workmen and within moments the Dieselworks is set ablaze. Harold and the fire brigade arrive, but their efforts are not enough to save Derek and the Dieselworks as only a dirty and traumatized Den makes it out alive the next morning. A fireman tells Sir Topham Hatt and Phil that aside from Derek, everyone is fine. Simon comes up moments later and convinces Hatt that the fire was started by Mr. Percival. Hatt is furious, but Phil questions whether or not Percival started the fire as it doesn't make sense to him. Sir Topham Hatt, engulfed in rage and not thinking clearly, fires his assistant on the spot. Meanwhile, Diesel is at the yard when BoCo arrives. The latter tells Diesel about the fire, about Derek, and about how traumatized Den is. Diesel goes over to the ruins of his home and tries to talk to Den. Although unable to speak, Diesel can tell how sad and terrified his friend is. On the other side of the island, Oliver tells Percy about the fire. Percy says he had nothing to do with it. Diesel, being englufed in rage simillar to Hatt, is convinced Percy is lying. That night, Diesel goes to Tidmouth Sheds to confront the steam engines. Diesel lashes out at the engines and they start a massive argument. The engines argue, the controllers argue, Phil wonders the island, and Simon watches the chaos from above, plotting and planning. While the chaos ensues, a small rowboat washes up at the docks.
