As part of my ongoing “Force-sensitivity Is A Spectrum-Not-A Binary” Campaign, I wanted to highlight this striking exchange in the “Trials of the Darksaber” episode of Rebels. Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla are discussing Sabine’s ability to safely wield the Darksaber (bolded for emphasis):
KANAN: I’m being careful.
HERA: Were you careful with Ezra? I don’t remember him fighting with stick.
KANAN: Well–maybe I’m trying to do things differently this time.
HERA: …Or, maybe because she doesn’t have the Force, you don’t believe she can do this?
KANAN: No, the Force resides in all living things, but you have to be open to it. Sabine is…blocked. Her mind is conflicted.
