: I'm only fooling around with ideas on Indy IV, but I've got (what at
: least I think to be) a rather interesting one. It's Indy's eye patch. I think that if Lucas decides to use it, he should already have it when the film starts and leave the audience (or some future novel) to speculate on what happened.

Agree! Kinda. I must admit, I never liked seeing Indy with an eyepatch in YIJC, but on a middle aged Indy, it would look pretty darn cool.
On the other hand, Lucas basically pulled that speculation trick already -- for the entire duration of the Young Indy series. I don't see any harm in giving the audience a good story by showing Indy lose his eye. Of course, he could always just plunge his head into a bowl full of Grail Water(tm)...
