Fix looks good, but perhaps the test logic could be made a little simpler?

Since the filter methods update shared state what if they just add their identifier to a list so you can observe [“A”, “B”, C”], or [“B”, “C”] etc.

Then you can test against the the list for the required order of filter calls rather putting logic in the filter methods themselves in what they return (they can just be identity functions with a side-effect).
