Episode Summary

EDIT
A Worm in the Apple
AIRED:
After an eventful day in English History, Phoebe Farragut asks Bond Junior if he'd like to go with her to witness the grand opening ceremony of the Mile High Sky Scraper in New York. James doesn't want to go with her, but tell her he will knowing that Mr. Millbanks will never allow them to travel anywhere outside of a Field trip. However to Bond's surprise Millbank has been placed under direct order by Phoebe's father, the man who helped finance the construction of the building, to make sure she is there to witness the ceremony. And, at the time un-be-known to 007's nephew, Bond's volunteering to go with her had saved Millbank the trouble of escorting Phoebe. However, Trevor Noseworthy over hears Millbank giving the two permission to go to The Big Apple. Determined to visit the FAO Swartz centre in the city, Trevor hands in a fake letter from his father giving Millbank instructions to allow Noseworthy to travel to Manhattan. Before James Bond Junior flies out to The States, I.Q. provides the teenage super spy with a diamond tipped comb and wires the liquid crystals in his sunglasses to act as a two-way live video camera so IQ and Bond can see directly through each other's eyes, of course Tracy uses this to her advantage. Knowing how naughty 007's nephew got up to she wasn't about to let him out of her sight (Needless to say Bond just takes them off when she's wearing IQ's pair. Upon arriving late at night in New York, Bond, Phoebe and Trevor go to their motel. Whilst checking in, the three are met by Peggy Rockworld, the daughter of Franklin Rockworld the owner and designer of the Mile High building that would be dedicated the next day. To enjoy a taste of the Big Apple they all go out to the disco. But whilst traveling by horse cart there is a massive explosion from the sewer! In the blast the horse taxi driver falls from his stallion and the horse runs wild. Bond manages to bring to horse to a stop before things get to chaotic. Apparently that wasn't the first manhole to explode, eleven had blown up previously in the passed week. There is a rumour that a mad bomber known as The Worm is planning to strike the Mile High Sky Scraper. Franklin Rockworld believes the rumours to be a load on nonsense however. When the dust settles, Bond spots a suspicious construction worker escaping down the manhole, he chases him down only to be attacked by the man. Bond defeats him by releasing the steam from the pipes, but behind he leaves his passport, identifying himself as the nephew of the world's greatest secret agent to the enemy... After reuniting with his friends, Team Bond make it to the rock club where they party. Bond manages to get Tracy off his back by lending his shades to one of the flirty male dancers. But little do they know is that there was a party pooper determined to do more than complain to the police about the loud music. Suddenly a massive explosion goes off deep beneath the rock club, causing the whole building to sink into the ground, trapping everybody in it! All the windows are blocked by tons of rubble and the power is out to the elevator. With air running out Bond, Trevor, Phoebe, Peggy and the rest of the people within the building make it up to the top floor to try and escape through the roof, only to find the door jammed from the outside! With only one more chance, Young Bond fires a wrist-mounted missile from his watch into the sealed escape route, blowing it open. Everyone escapes. Upon making it to the surface, Bond spots the mastermind behind the downing of the building himself, The Worm escaping in a black limousine! Obviously his plan to assassinate Young Bond Junior had failed and was now on the run. Bond and friends pick up the chase in a pizza delivery truck and chase him all the way to a manhole in the city. Bond follows the subterranean bomber down into the New York sewers only to find a freshly dug tunnel into the earth. Bond's underground investigation leads him to find the Worm and his army of construction workers have dug kilometers of passages deep beneath the city like a maze. It is my sheer accident that Young Bond stumbles across Worm's plan. The cause of the exploding sewers has been from bombs being set off in the tunnels, but they are just test runs for The Worm's real target; he plans on wiring the tunnels beneath the Mile High Sky Scraper with explosives and blow out the building's foundations causing it to fall miles into the ground, jut like the Disco. But before Bond can escape he is captured by the Worm and his men. The psycho reveals to wanting to sink the world's tallest building: The ground floor bank contains billions of dollars in deposits, once the building is sunk he will be able to travel down there and take the money for himself. But the money is only a by-product, for buried from the world beneath tons of earth the tower will then become his New York lair allowing The Worm to take more bites from the Big Apple. But before Bond is taken away, he snatches Worm's sun goggles and crushes them beneath his feet. It turns out that just like all subterranean creatures The Worm cannot stand bright lights. The Worm takes Bond sunshades to replace the ones he lost, but IQ watches what happens through the eyes of the terrorist. Little Boothroyd immediately telephones the New York Police Department, but they don't believe his story of miles of tunnels dug by The Worm planning or the plot 'sink the world's largest tower...' Bond is chained up to the explosive devices deep beneath the Mile High Building all night, The Worm plans on dropping the building on top of James Bond Junior. But during the dedication ceremony, Bond cuts through the chains using the comb IQ gave him and makes it up to the surface. There he finds the Worm waiting in his limo readying to press the button on the remote detonator as soon as the mayor declares the building officially open. Bond fights Worm for the trigger, but as they fall out the car the two dump into Trevor Noseworthy (Who had after finally finding FAO Swarts returned with a RC racecar). The remote control for the bomb and the remote control for the car gets switched temporally. At the last second Bond remembers The Worm's one weakness, and that IQ can still see what Worm sees. With the order from Bond, IQ switches off the liquid crystals in the shades The Worm wears; exposing his eyes to open sunlight. The terrorist is painfully blinded long enough to be arrested and for Bond to grab the remote off him in time, saving New York's newest tallest building, and millions of people that would have followed. Upon arriving back to Warfield, Bond is disappointed enough to find out Tracy still won't leave him only with the spy goggles. But Bond puts and end to his problem by accidental bumping into Mr. Mitchell. Young Bond gives Mitchell the video cam glasses as a gift before the coach continues on his way to the Men's Change Rooms, giving Tracy the surprise and fight of her life simultaneously!moreless
