Honestly, the lack of a SE so far is quite encouraging. Web was always a higher profile release than Enemy (even though I might like Enemy a bit more), if Special editions of both were planned, it would make sense for Web to be released first because it’s the more famous story if there was no hope of episode 3 coming back [for regular editions, Web was released a month before Enemy in region 1. I know that the Web regular was released later than Enemy (February 2014 versus November 2013), but that was because they were hoping that Phil Morris would be able to quickly retrieve episode 3]. The fact that the Enemy SE was released first, and that it’s been several months since with no Web announcement, leads me to three plausible conclusions:
a. Phil Morris has been unable to confirm or deny episode 3’s existence, in which case the BBC would wait to act.
b. Phil Morris has been able to confirm episode 3’s existence, in which case the BBC would wait to act.
c. Phil Morris has recovered episode 3, and it is either in his hands or the hands of the BBC, in which case the BBC have to wait to act until Phil Morris finishes his hunt.
The only reason the BBC would announce a Web Special Edition is if they had Web 3 in their possession or if they had positive confirmation it no longer existed. In the former situation, they would have to wait for Phil Morris finished his hunt before making a reveal, and in the latter situation there would be no reason to delay.
Therefore, Web 3 must either exist or not be known to not exist for there to not have been a special edition released or announced yet.
Or maybe the BBC do know that episode 3 doesn’t exist, and they are just slow to make the release for whatever reason.
