"Yoda spoke of another."
Perhaps this has been discussed elsewhere, but I've never heard any speculation of it.
So of course, in Empire Strikes Back, Obi-Wan laments as Luke recklessly abandons his training that Luke was their last hope, and Yoda says, "No, there is another." And of course, that other was revealed to be his sister Leia in the second movie.
YEAH, RIGHT. I don't believe for a second that Lucas had these storylines as well planned-out as he makes everyone believe, and this is the single biggest piece of evidence, as far as I'm concerned. Lucas wouldn't have had Leia give Luke that kiss earlier in the movie if he'd already decided that Leia was going to be his sister who was also strong in the force.
So the question that I'm wondering, and perhaps someone has heard of the truth leaking out elsewhere, is WHO WAS THE OTHER HOPE?
Not having a clue outside of introducing a new character, here are a couple of thoughts I had:
a) It actually always was Leia for whatever reason, and the sister part came later.
b) Lucas didn't actually have a clue, may not have even intended on following up; he just wanted to swerve us into thinking that Luke might die or join Vader.
c) Luke had knocked up some girl back on Hoth. Okay, that one's reaching a little.
Curious to hear what others think/have heard.
