I wonder how the movie will deal with Mikaela's sudden departure. Her character arc, though kinda shallow, really made it feel like she and Sam were going to tie the knot in TF3. I'm gathering that opinion from the "white dress & bouquet scene" and the "Sam and Mikaela won't say 'I love you' until after Sam dies" in ROTF. It felt very much like their relationship was growing. Even Bumblebee was protective of Sam's and Mikaela's relationship. How do you think her absence will be explained away in TF3? Do you think they'll have a "Ron & Judy console Sam" scene? Do you think there'll be two seconds of dialogue just saying "Mikaela pissed off the wrong people and now she's dead. Move on with your lives."? Do you think they'll even take up screentime talking about her?
