ACM showcased "full on Riley" but with GROWTH. It was so beautiful to see. And I dont think its a coincidence that lucas (her bf), the one person that weve been shown her grow apart from since her growth, is not there. "Its the best time to be Riley"
I think that is beautifully (and accurately) said. Honestly, he’s pretty absent in most of the episodes where her growth is showcased most, whether he is literally running out of the room, or running out of the state. I suppose he was in SDLM, an episode where she was stellar Riley, but he actually seemed pretty annoyed with her the whole time so(same goes for PR)…
sO i dunno if anyone has pointed this out already but Midas and Lityerses in TLO settled in Omaha because they were told there would be an oracle there. coincidence? i think not!!! leo and festus probably wont be happy if they have to go there again. (see what i did there?)
I don’t have my copy of The Lost Hero on me to reread that scene, but it sounds pretty familiar! Should be interesting haha.
I just realized that Poe’s musical theme plays exactly 3 times during TFA, and each time that it does so, he’s with Finn.
1. As Finn blows up the turbolaser cannons on the Finalizer and they celebrate his shot. 2. As Poe swoops in over the ruins of Maz’s castle, shooting up the TIEs that nearly had Finn. 3. As Poe sees the Millennium Falcon lifting off from Starkiller Base,and knows that Finn has made it out.
In each scene Poe is rooting for Finn and actively protecting him. The third scenario strikes me the most. In the novelization, we discover that Poe deliberately disobeys a direct order from General Leia (his idol, someone he has “limitless respect” for) to retreat to safety, instead choosing to risk his life to stay behind and search for Finn. What would’ve happened if he hadn’t seen the Falcon at that moment? Less than ten seconds after that shot, Starkiller Base turns into a sun. Would he have searched till the bitter end?
