On the latest release of TFTM, Flint Dille says that a lot of the ideas that wouldn't fit in TFTM ended up in Five Faces of Darkness. That said, I remember hearing the following rumour many years ago and was wondering if anyone else remembers it as well. Basically, the story I heard was this: while TFTM was in the final stages of production, plans were already being drawn up for a sequel. A plot was developed and a story written. When TFTM didn't perform to expectations at the box office, the idea of a sequel was quickly shelved. But rather than waste the script that had been (or was being) written, the powers that be hacked it into five pieces and turned it into the first five episodes of Season 3. Does that ring a bell with anyone?
