Thoughts on “Heinous” and Trans Marco
So from this episode we know that Miss Heinous still isn’t done trying to exact revenge on Princess Marco, meaning she’ll be back later on, and from the leaked ADR shot of the characters in starcrushed, she probably won’t be in the season 2 finale (there was a name listed ending in “-us”, but the number of letters didn’t fit “Miss Heinous” but rather “Rhombulus”) which leaves season 3 for her arc to come to completion.
This fits pretty well with what we’ve been thinking wrt trans marco - it doesn’t seem to be happening this season, but it’s still totally plausible for season 3, especially if Heinous is still a threat.
Also, the fact that there was no confrontation over the contradicting pronouns being used for Marco in this episode is evidence for the writers wanting to wait till later to deal with Marco’s gender in the show. especially since Heinous being appalled at the idea of the st. o’s girls inviting over boys to party with shows that the “no boys allowed” rule at st o’s is still relevant, and that Heinous doesn’t know Marco is a boy (at least to all the other characters in the show)
