I really hope they do that.
I have to stress that IMHO ToMI is - up until ep4 - the best Monkey Island sequel after LeChuck's Revenge, and I mean it.
Telltale did an incredible work, considering that they tried not to alter the franchise, developing it in a new way.
That's the reason I am so irritated by the finale. If the whole game had huge problems, I wouldn't bother to suggest these (minor-but-HUGE-for-the-logic-of-the-plot) corrections. If the series was a total disaster, I guess me and Bloody Eugene would just dismiss it altogether, without a fight.
I just think it's a pity that a truly great experience is marred by a convoluted and messy narrative right at the photo finish! Come on! I don't think these minor corrections would compromise what we all loved in ep5: the power of love
, Guybrush's sacrifice
, Elaine's strength, the eerie atmosphere. I didn't like the idea of another mystery (Voodoo Lady's plan) in the already messed-up Monkey Island continuity, but I can accept the creative choice: the Voodoo Lady mystery is presented as a mystery. I may like it, I may not, but I understand there's a mystery.
On the other hand, Elaine's plan is not a mystery, it's just a good reason for Guybrush to get a divorce as soon as possible. The girl's out of her mind.
P.S.: Of course, an explanation for Morgan's body disappearance would be nice too.
