Also Clara had a purpose she causes the problem which has to be resolved, without her Doc would of got in the DeLorean and got to 1985 and it would of all been good but because she is there she comes on to the train, almost dies and has to be rescued by Doc which created much tension during the train scene.
Also even though it is just a film so I sound like a physco when I say this, I understood Docs pain when he had to leave Clara behind, so basically she creates a lot of emotion because you feel sympathy for Doc.
But yes Edna was a good character but it felt like she had been forced in because there was no indication in the film Mr Strickland had a sister.
Personnally I dont really want telltale to keep on with Edna in season 2 her moment of fame was season 1, most people have said they want to see Clara so instead of adding alternative versions of jennifer which dont look anything like her they could add characters fans want to see.
Clara inadvertantly adds to the conflict in the third film; think of how it would have played out without her; Doc and Marty decide on the plan to use the train to get back. Realizing Buford is after him, they would stay inside for the remainder. Doc likely only went to the festival so he could see Clara so without her there is no run in with tannen. Doc wouldn't have gone to the salloon so even if Tannen was still after him he wouldn't find him there. They'd get back to 1985, Doc would let the time machine get destroyed and his greatest invention may or may not go to waste- it's up to interpretation why he builds the time train. You could argue that he had another 'what the hell?' moment like he had in the first film and thus still would have built a second time machine had he returned to 1985. Some believe Clara inspired him. Or you could also argue he does it to get Einstein and see marty one more time.
Edna was a good choice. They did all they could with Biff in the first two films. She's also set up where she's a protagonist for the first 2 episodes and antagonist for the last 3. There was very little development of Strickland other than he hasn't had hair for minimum 30 years and he's from a long line of disciplinarians. The stricklands had already been established as antagonist and protagonists; Mr. Strickland is more of an antagonist towards the McFly's in the first 2 films but Marshall is a protagonist. That being said her character has run it's course. I'm thinking the tannens of the future could be the next villains.
