Sir Handel's Plan is a fan-fiction Thomas & Friends fifth season episode, which first aired in the place of Bye George.
Sir Handel is jealous when Peter Sam is brought back from Wales especially to help with the engine shortage, and when he is convinced he sees Peter Sam grinning at him from the shed he is furious and deliberately knocks his firebars loose, resulting in his being sent to the shed. However, as the days pass and no one comes, Sir Handel worries he will stay there forever. When Sir Topham Hatt finally comes in one day, Sir Handel confesses and Sir Topham Hatt, thinking quickly, thanks Sir Handel for admitting his mistake and arranges for him to receive some new firebars, which, he neglects to tell him, had only been delivered that morning.
