For The Last Knight, Sqweeks and Izabella received a ton of promotion in the movie's marketing campaign. At the beginning of the film, they actually got some decent screen time, Izabella's introduction seemed to suggest she would be one of the film's main characters, or that at least part of the film would focus on her. Bizarrely, as soon as Cogman shows up, Cade leaves Izabella and her robot buddy behind, and they are not seen again until the film's final act. This struck me as strange when I first saw the movie- what was the point of all the buildup if they weren't really going to do anything at all? Why are they in the film? My first guess was that they could have been thrown in there to set up a role in a future sequel, or that maybe they were just there to pander to critics and audiences who wanted a strong female lead or a family- friendly robot. But then I thought about some of the interviews with the production team I had read before the movie came out. I remember one of them saying that TLK was going to have two plotlines that would converge toward the end of the movie. The movie, though, only had one major plot. My guess is that there was probably an entire secondary plot that did not make the final draft or the final cut. I'm assuming that plot line would focus on Izabella and Sqweeks, and probably the other characters that were left behind at the beginning of act two. Perhaps more on the conflict with the TRF? One theory that Izabella was supposed to be Merlin's last remaining heir, and that Viviane was just supposed to be a red herring character for the true recipient of Merlin's staff. After all, we know literally nothing about Izabella's family, other than her parents died. My guess is that that would have figured this out in the final act, bringing the plotlines together. My guess is that this story was probably cut to get the movie down to a reasonable length, and to give more focus to Cade. I think they didn't want to lose these new characters either, which results in their limited on screen appearance. This is just speculation of course, I'm not really sure what they had in mind. What do you think? What do you think Sqweeks and Izabella were supposed to do? Or what should they have done?
