It's perhaps fitting than in a year when Antony Hegarty nabbed a Best Original Song nomination and Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander were recognized for their work on The Danish Girl we've been prompted to revisit Morley's story and return her, perhaps, to the place in LGBT history she'd always earned.
Speculation is always fun and the makers of The Force Awakens clearly invited the speculation. Even so, unless the filmmakers have a really terrific idea up their sleeve and none of the current speculation turns out to be accurate, there will be no element of surprise when this story aspect resolves itself.
With this new episode coming out, the stakes are high. I'm not just talking about the franchise here. When the first three episodes came out, there wasn't as much at stake. It was backstory. My childhood characters were safe back in the 70s and I could line up with the rest of the world and criticize the prequels as not being real. Not part of the "real" movies.
