Bold and Brave is the twenty-first (ninth in Australia) episode of the ninth season.
Thomas is collecting equipment for the seaside station and Diesel warns him of the "curse of the cliffs." Thomas is sceptical, but when Harold warns him of fog near the headlands, Thomas is frightened. He later finds Ben outside of a tunnel, who tells him Diesel says a monster is lurking inside. Thomas goes to investigate and realises the monster is really a generator powering some lights. Ben thanks Thomas and goes on with his job. Thomas puffs onwards and comes across the fog, but thinks about Diesel's other lie and bravely goes on. In the future, Thomas knows not to believe Diesel, but to believe in himself.
