Oh my god you turds I was just expressing my pleasure at a microwavable cup of cheesy minute rice, not starting a carb debate wherein someone needs to post maps about who eats what where and what’s better. I DON’T CARE I JUST WANT TO PUT RICE IN MY FACE
Ben (voice over during flashback): “He had sensed my power, as he senses yours. And he feared it.”
Oh my god, I just realized - Ben is afraid that Luke is going to kill Rey.
Rey is on the island with Luke, and Ben thinks Luke wanted to murder him in his sleep as a boy. Ben is trying to warn Rey to get off the island before Luke kills her. Ben was trying to protect her; he was concerned she was going to get murdered in her sleep.
And think about it - this hand-touching scene ends with Luke bursting violently into Rey’s hut in the middle of the night, and exploding the entire building. And that’s the moment the force bond vision cuts off for Ben, with that image of a furious Luke in Rey’s hut.
Ben probably thought Luke had come to kill her. I can just picture him shaking as the feeling of her hand fades.
Honestly Kylo Rens whole character makes 100% more sense once you understand that he is, above all, hurt and afraid, and he wants not to be, and he has no idea how to make that happen. It’s why his actions are so wild and inconsistent and unpredictable- he really is just throwing anything at the wall to see what sticks, and none of it is working because he’s completely failing to identify or address the source of his pain and fear.
When Infinity War comes out if someone doesn’t make one of those dramatic AF and very emotional 10 Year Anniversary Videos of all the greatest moments of the MCU and it’s characters set to the wonderful epic fan video classic “How Far We’ve Come” by Matchbox Twenty I am going to be very disappointed in all of us, collectively, as a fandom.
