Last night's episode was a definite return to form for the show - despite seemingly forgetting one of the kids' existence -
There was a bit of a weird edit in the last episode of the series.
The third kid (Benji) did actually appear - sort of. At a couple of points, he is partially visible, briefly, on the edge of the screen. The child actors having to stand apart for social distancing purposes might explain why Benji is hardly seen. From what little you could see of him, he appeared to be wearing a black helmet, presumably a WW2-era German one.
This explains the odd line from Lucy's Dad after the second kid (Charlie) appeared in a Centurion costume - Geoffrey says: "I can tell he's yours", or words to that effect, to Lee. This comes just after Lee's German lineage has emerged, and Geoffrey saying it in response to a Centurion outfit made no sense. So obviously the appearance of the third child in a German outfit was cropped out, and would have fitted in just before that line from Geoffrey.
My guess is that the story was cropped by a minute or two in order to make way for the tribute to Bobby Ball after the credits.
