AU: The Blofeld Trilogy

Due to the books being adapted out of order, many fans felt that the Blofeld Trilogy of the James Bond series has been butchered, so the trilogy was adapted a second time, this time in order but still with some significant changes.

In order to distinguish them from the originals, the films were given new titles; 007: Operation Thunderball, 007: For Queen and Country and 007: You Only Die Once.

However, Blofeld returned and, with the help of henchwoman Irma Bunt, murdered Bond's wife tracy as they drove off on their honeymoon. An enraged Bond set out on a personal vendetta against Blofeld, eventually tracking down and strangling Bunt, before he was apprehended by MI6 and kicked out.
