In a reverse of Dr No Blofeld tries to hide a knife, Madeline discovers it. They play an inteligent cat and mouse game where both of them tries to get more information without giving away too much.

I think this could be a nice way to give Madeline and Blofeld something interesting to do without making the plot and screentime about them.

Why would Blofeld help MI6 by giving them information? After he was captured SPECTRE is divided, both fractions with a leader. One part of SPECTRE is loyal to Blofeld and wants to break him out of prison. The other part is led by a leader who wants to be the new Number 1, so he/she wants to keep Blofeld in prison and make his mark with a spectacular crime. Blofeld doesn't want the usurper to win, so he supplies Madeleine and MI6 with information about his competitor. When Bond uses this information to stop the spectcular plan, the loyalists manage to spring Blofeld from jail at the end of the movie.

If there is a new Bond actor in 26 I would think that EON wouldn't want to bring the same Blofeld back. That being said, a different ending could be that Blofeld gets broken out but a bit earlier in the film. Mayhem ensues with Blofeld and his loyalists, Bond then tracks Blofeld down except unlike the end of SPECTRE where Bond opts not to execute Blofeld, he kills Blofeld. I will throw this back to Number24 (or anyone else who wants to give it a shot) to come up with how Bond dispatches Blofeld and a memorable line for Bond to say before he liquidates Blofeld (I would think the line should reference Bond correcting the mistake he made by sparing Blofeld at the end of SPECTRE).

Why wouldn't EON want to bring Blofeld back? Such as an iconic villan should be used in more than two movies. Cristoph Waltz's Blofeld wasn't as impactful as he should have been, but we know Waltz can impress with a better script. I'm in favour of a soft Craigxit with the same M and Scooby Gang and no clear break in continuity (insofar there is any in Bond movies). it's not necessary to have  Craig's Bond kill Blofeld. They tried to link Vesper's death to Blofeld in SPECTRE, but I think it was so long ago and so clumisly done I don't think the audience will demand Blofeld's death in Bond25.

When they finally kill Blofeld I think the Garden of Death is the perfect way to do that. If tht can't be done I like the planned ending of DAF where Bond and Blofeld fight it out in a salt mine sounds good.

On  second thought, Blofeld doesn't have to escape in in this storyline for Bond25. Bond can stop the SPECTRE plan and kill the usurper. The loyal Number 2 rebuilds SPECTRE for Bond26 and springs Blofeld from prison. Finally in Bond27 we get the Garden of Death.

Daniel Craig's Bond hasn't saved the world yet, has he? ... It would be great if he got an old fashioned Atomic bomb ticking away or something ...

could you imagine Craig in a clown costume, trying to defuse a ticking A-bomb while the children and generals laughed at him?
He'd tell them to piss off, and stomp away in disgust leaving them all to get blown up.
It'd be a new twist though, we definitely haven't seen that before in a Bondfilm.

Well...ok, but I do want to see Craig waste someone DN/Connery style in Bond 25.....it suites him. ajb007/smile  ajb007/martini
