Given all the news about The End that we've received so far. I have the very strong impression that it and the Penultimate Peril are going to be the episodes that deviate most wildly from the books.
Not that that's an inherently bad thing, the scripts were still written, supervised, and approved by Daniel Handler after all.
:Edit: Also, (and Dante would probably know) wasn't there a rumor that Daniel Handler's original draft for the Penultimate Peril involved a long sequence where the children went back to Olaf's house ? Any idea about how that would've affected his original conception for The End ?
Pretty sure they have not started The End, I assume this is from the end of TPP. There is no way Babs would appear in The End as well, so TPP. Also, Larry’s Instagram includes a trolley, which makes sense for TPP and not The End.
imlarryyourwaiter There's no question that they've finished filming the Penultimate Peril and have started The End. That much has been made clear by multiple posts from the cast and crew on their social media. As to the date of the photo, that I could not tell you.
But I would caution that just because Babs' wig is in the back of the shot, does not mean it's from yesterday. Since they only finished filming the Penultimate Peril less than a day ago, they might not have had time to clear out all the wigs from the hair and makeup trailer.
Looks like Mr. Poe and Larry Your-Waiter will both be making a small appearance in The End.
Oddly enough this is what concerns me most. I've accepted that we could end up with a quite short The End, but in that case I want it to be very focused and like an epilogue. The only returning characters should be Olaf, Kit and the Baudelaires (parents included, in flashbacks). Possibly I would be fine with us seeing what happens to the Quagmires, but I don't want entirely new plots involving Larry, or contrived ways to bring Mr. Poe into the episode.
I don't think that they'll be in it for too long. Barry Sonnenfeld said in an interview a few months ago, that out of each day of filming, only about 2 and a half to 4 minutes of the footage they've shot actually makes it into the final product. And since this is the only day they've shot...
:Edit: Also, the first picture might've been taken yesterday, which is when they finished filming the Penultimate Peril.
gothicarchiesfan do you think you could do the Cafe Salmonella theme? It's in TEE part one, about 32:24 - 34:32 (starts right at the first shot of the restaurant interior and ends right before the cut away to Jacques opening his car trunk). It's so nice of you to do these!
Here you go Quisby. Thank you very much for the compliment.

I think that the ultimate point of the Man With a Beard But No Hair and the Woman With Hair But No Beard is that they're supposed to be ambiguous and unknown. Their primary function in the narrative is to reinforce two very key themes of the series.
1) That Olaf is not the worst villain in the world, and that there are forces even crueler and more evil than him. Which by extension, ties into the later books’ theme of the story being bigger than just the Beaudelaires struggle with Count Olaf.
2) That even institutions which should by rights help the helpless and encourage noble deeds (i.e. the high court or V.F.D.) can be corrupted from the inside by wicked influences that pervert said organization's stated noble goals.

Mr. Dent: I won't post in her thread since I never truly got to know Linda, but she was still one of the most recognizable people on the forums. She always seemed so vibrant. I don't really know what to say, but I still feel like I should. I'm sorry for your loss.
