No matter how many times I watch it, I can’t get over Kylo’s emotional progression during the second ForceTime scene. He goes from sad puppy dog to hopeful to determined to scheming. Let’s dive in lovelies, shall we?
First, let’s look at his
gorgeous face after Rey calls him a murderous snake. He looks heartbroken. He doesn’t want her to think about him that way.
Luckily for him, Rey gives him an easy way to challenge what
the girl of his dreams she thinks about him. As soon as she says that she found Skywalker, you can see the wheels turning in his head. Then the light bulb goes off.
“Did he tell you what happened?”
Now he’s a man on a mission. He wants her to know the truth about Luke– the truth about him.
“The night I destroyed his temple. Did he tell you why?” “I know everything I need to know about you.”
She’s still being stubborn (understandably), so now…time for a challenge. He knows she won’t be able to resist a challenge, and that she’ll find out the truth. And if she finds out the truth, she’ll think of him differently.
“You do? Ah, you do.”
Aka, “Please find out the truth so you will understand why I am the way I am, fall in love with me, come join me, and be my gorgeous Empress and rule the galaxy by my side. “
Dear GOD I could watch these two all day long.
