No offence, but what did y'all think The Last Jedi was going to be about ? Rey, Finn, Poe and Rose playing space volleyball with BB-8 while Luke keeps score? Whether or not you ship it, whether or not you believe something romantic will go down, Rey’s relationship with Kylo Ren is the central one.
Something that I've been thinking for a while, but with the recent discussion of the characters dying and/or being put on the back of the bus, I keep wondering if Patty still exists post Flashpoint. Julian has been around for... a year? before the beginning of season 3 (of course, no mention what he was doing in the original timeline), and he is in the meta taskforce. From the way Julian was talking back in ep 5, I'm tempted to think that Patty was not around in the new timeline.
