Does anyone else dwell on the fact that Kylo never addresses Rey by her name? He called her ‘The Girl’ when they met in the forest, but during their intense duel he never said her name. Am I in the minority DYING to hear the word Rey come out of his mouth???
When I think of Rian Johnson’s comment about romance not being a centerpiece for TLJ, I think of the X-Files and how Mulder’s and Scully’s romance wasn’t blatantly pronounced, but crept up on the audience slowly (because it was always central; it just wasn’t focused upon as a centerpiece until the proper time). The key was misdirection and tailoring the viewer’s perception, keeping their attention on other things. Mulder’s and Scully’s love was a vital part of the whole – the heart – of which the centerpiece itself would not be complete without, though it was deliberately portrayed more through nuance and words that weren’t said rather than said.
As a viewer, you only notice most of the true subtext of their interactions on a subconscious level before it finally dawns on you just how sacred and deep their love is. Their love is not an average romance. Due to all of this, their romance never feels forced. It feels earned.

“It’s female,” Rey announced to the few
people grouped around her at the Resistance base. “The source that’s calling
out to me, I can tell that it’s coming from a girl.” She surveyed the puzzled
faces around her.
General Leia Organa called those
within the close inner circle to a meeting when Rey told her about the
mysterious pull. “When did it start?” Leia asked, hands braced on the
table, leaning in.
“About a weak ago,” Rey answered, Poe and
Finn paid close attention to her words. “If I’m able to pick up on something
like this then it’s strong, bigger than anything I’ve ever felt before. And I
know this, it’s not on this planet.” She looked cautiously at those around her.
“How?” Finn questioned. “How is
“It means,” Leia began, “that
they must have a new weapon. A new Sith lord perhaps. She must be even stronger
then Kylo Ren if you can feel her presence from planets away.”
Rey’s recent training with Luke
Skywalker had taught her to see the Force, to feel it, even in places she would
least expect. It was thanks to that training that she had been able to pick up
on this new person. “Whatever she is,” Rey stated, “I doubt that she’s evil.”
Everyone in the room frowned. “The energy she’s sending is stressed, scared,
almost as if she’s being kept against her will. It’s a distress signal.”
“Would you be able to follow it
to the source?” Poe asked, leaning forward.
“Yes,” was all Rey said.
“What are you suggesting?” Finn
asked in his usual manner, preparing for another suicide mission.
“We go and rescue her,” Poe
replied. “We rescue her and bring her to a safe place. Figure out who and what
she is. Maybe she can help us.”
We could use all the help we can
get,” Leia said. “But breaching the First Order base will be next to
“I have a plan,” came Poe’s
reply, smirking at the small group around him.
um not to be beyond depressing but rey laid down to die here. like the planet was collapsing and she had no idea chewie was coming with the falcon to get them, in fact when it did come she was surprised… so like here she was assuming they were going to die as the planet collapsed, she found finn and laid down to die with him
finn: finds the strength to escape from the people who manipulated and abused him since his childhood, immediately befriends both rey and poe and shows selfless concern for rey’s wellbeing on multiple occasions, begs rey to run away with him after knowing her for a day or less, runs across a battlefield to try and save rey from being captured by his abusers, runs to embrace poe upon discovering he’s alive, lies his way on to starkiller base (returning to the people who manipulated and abused him since his childhood) to rescue rey, gives rey his jacket to keep her from being too cold, plants himself between rey and kylo ren to protect her despite having no training with a lightsaber and knowing he could be killed
