I watched Rogue One again tonight, and I’m so sad that Bodhi died so alone and unceremonious compared to everyone else. My dear sweet Bodhi. I wish he’d had someone to die with, like Baze and Chirrut and Jyn and Cassian. Kaytoo was alone as well but was talking on the comm and able to say goodbye. So Bodhi really did have the most sudden and singular death.
That moment of “this is for Galen” kills me because that was who he was thinking of in his final moments and we really don’t know what sort of relationship they had or why Galen impacted his life so strongly that he defected, and it feels so lonely that this was the most important person to him.
That earlier scene where he reacts to Jyn being Galen’s daughter and she perks up knowing that he knew her father, in fact knew him better than she did, is too short! I needed more of that.
Dark Rogue One show me the extended cut with more character development.
