8-19-2014: The “somehow i’ve always known line” is gone in ROTJ:R. I’ve never liked it. It just doesn’t sit right with me. Actually, i don’t think she should say anything at all during that section. She should seem shocked and speechless after what she has just been told, not the “oh yeh, i thought something seemed strange. duh” type of reaction.
