Woke up with my scumbag brain busily working out the plot to the new Star Wars.
"Stop!" I say.
But it keeps coming.
I've only seen the first two trailers, but if I start with a certain premise, it becomes clear what the first third of the movie probably is. If I'm right, there'll be some complaints, but I think it'll be fine.
I won't give away any of it here. I'm probably wrong anyway.
I do this a lot nowadays. I'm always figuring out the plot, even when I'm not really trying. I'm conscious of the plot tricks writers are using. Sometimes they're fair, sometimes they're cheap. When they trick me, I'm impressed. Supergirl went straight to a plot point last night that I didn't see coming, but most shows are pretty predictable.
Unless they're like Leftovers, where there is no figuring out the plot.
"I don't understand what's happening!"
