Yes I brought that idea up some days ago. I think it is in fact rather obvious.
She is a medical doctor from a top universities. I doubt that she will live a happy life with Bond (or him with her) after SP, so she would follow her own life and career.
Doing scientific work is not too unrealistic for her.
"scientist" is what EON would call it in a synopsis to not make it too obvious and Madeleine kidnapped is what would bring back Bond out of retirement.
And last but not least: There is no one else in the main cast to play the scientist - so: very obvious
Not the same boat. Same brand thought.
Drugs? Were? Which? No drugs in SF. Just booze, as usual.
She's not even a medical doctor, is she? Isn't she a psychologist? A psychotherapist at most? No, I don't think she's the scientist.
Obviously she is NOT with Bond, otherwise she would be in Jamaica with him but she is not from what we can tell now. So how do we think she will make it into the story?
As long as they don't do a plain sequence like the one the clip above led to, I think they're safe from comparisons (one would hope).
I guess it's a step from Madeleine's background to scientific work. On the other hand, the right script could probably make that bit believable. Maybe scientific work somehow relating to psychology or psychotherapy? Nah, probably not.
David Dencik would have been the obvious guess, if not for the reports he'll play a villain. I haven't found a quote where he mentions the word "villain" himself, though.
Interesting! If we're to speculate (we don't need the spoiler tag here, remember!), my guess would be Malik…or maybe David Dencik? I hope there's more to Dencik's character than what we might expect.
Dencik is part of the cast of Chernobyl, btw.
None of the other major crew members seem to be regularly active on Instagram. Sandgren hasn't posted in almost five months.
Back when CR was released, DC said something to the effect of a cigarette-smoking secret agent didn't seem to make much sense. The alcohol and pills, post-recruitment, are more stress-related, perhaps better stress-relievers than the pack of smokes. That said, there's nothing wrong with the cigar, considering Bond's "retirement."
I think DC gave up cigars a few years ago. So my guess is that he has it because the scene calls for it.
He gave up cigarettes, not cigars, I think. I, for one, only smoke cigars, not cigarettes. But hey, I do hope you're right my friend, and the cigar makes an appearance in the film, as it should. Always makes me think of Moore.
Or even if they were pain pills it could’ve been to treat pain from the injuries he sustained in the PTS. Not abuse but medicinal use.
I don't have access to the movie at the moment but I believe it's a prescription bottle from which he gets the pills.
On YouTube I was able to find the scene where Silva is reading Bond's records and he specifically mentions "alcohol and substance addictions indicated" That's pretty clear cut.
The thing is, abuse can be temporary and not chronic.
Crazy idea but could they be planning on Blofeld changing his appearance through plastic surgery? Malek is Blofeld?
In Skyfall, the basic facts are Bond is injured and is taking medication for it. Bond choosing to smoke a cigar as a lifestyle choice is different.
It'd be weird for Craig to be smoking one between shots if he weren't actually smoking it in the movie, though. Maybe they did a take with it, and a take without.
