Romantic, platonic, whatever I love that one of the things we can be 400% certain of, it’s that Rey, much like Leia is someone Poe Dameron has endless respect for it. They’re people he’d happily take commands from – happily follow through with whatever choice they make. The beauty of “I know” is that it signifies so much. It always has in this universe. It’s the simplest response, but it’s so profound in its meaning. It’s not and could never be perceived as a anything but solidification of something bigger because it’s so much more no matter what angle it’s analyzed through.
And one of the things about Rey is that she is in every sense of the word, an absolute force to be reckoned with. There’s not a single soul in the galaxy who can deny this fact after meeting her, or hearing about her. It’s that very fact that easily allows someone as stubborn and meticulous as Poe to trust her, to believe every single word that’s said about her. And that
over the moon, ridiculously smitten smile was indication of the fact that he knows this woman is a force to be reckoned with and whatever command ever leaves her mouth, he’d jump at it quicker than BB-8 could roll in his most frenzied state. I mean, if she’s so important to his droid, you best believe he’ll be just as important to him, if not more. And that’s kinda the thing that floors me, it doesn’t matter how, but as Daisy Ridley said, the intimacy that can be developed between these two can be so beautiful. Solidified through unwavering respect and belief in one another.
Plus, not to mention the fact that she’d eventually be one out of the two people that could put his reckless, hotheaded fired up little head in place with one look or one word without even trying. (!!!!!)
This my friends, much like the Millennium Falcon, is my kind of perfect garbage.
