    I'm clouded because I don't find a racist joke funny? Okay, I guess I'm clouded.

    They said with holding the last name is intentional. I have said it more than a few time finn is more important than some people want to believe ...

    What was the joke ?

    Finn NEEDS ago he a groundbreaking character but being FS isn't necessary in my opinion, I bet he will be A "HIGH-CONCEPT" Character .

    You hit the nail on the head with this one. Finn is a co-lead, and he's just as important as Rey. It's kind of sad people have to keep restating this but I guess most people's minds go; Jedi=Sole Lead.

    Finn's not having a last name is "specific." Because he didn't have a name period until Poe gave him one. And yes, I believe that he'll continue to be a major factor moving forward.

    Actually, it's kind of exciting since I really have no idea where his character goes from here, which rarely happens in film.

    Sure. Finn Windu (frozen in carbonite) and Rey Skywalker, hidden from Ben Solo.

    right? more often than not we know exactly what will happen next. I don't think its as simple as he was a storm trooper so no last name needed. If it was the case they would not have made it a point to show him as a child and point out he was taken at birth. His last name may not be skywalker but that doesn't mean its not important going forward. If they are basing him of kyle katarn or Finn Galfridian then he would actually have royal ties, The possibility are endless

    Yeah, you're probably right. I dont really think that either, because I think Finn just has a secret last name because even his first name is "FN". Most likely the first order is going to do their homework and know who they are recruiting from birth and not get fooled by a Windu. Just fun to think about.

    True...I don't think Finn's parents were really able to name him, though, if he was taken literally the second he was born .

    My prediction for a darker Episode VIII:

    - Chewbacca dies.
    - Luke dies, but become a Force Ghost.
    - Epic "Rey, I'm your brother!" - "Noooooooo" scene with Kylo and Rey.
    - R2-D2 will be destroyed.
    - Finn captured (by Phasma) and tortured (by Kylo or Snoke) to bring Rey to the dark side.
    - Rey loses a limb (a leg?)

    I will honestly scream if this happens!

    I know some people would hate this with a burning passion because they would feel like it's borrowing too much from the OT, but I actually love the idea of them being brother and sister and personally I would be surprised since I'm one of those who believe Rey isn't a Skywalker (a discussion for another thread). On the other hand it might not be the best idea to "pay homage" so openly to such an iconic moment in that way :p

    If Finn is related to Mace Windu or Lando then fail.

    Well, in retrospect, there were literally TWO black people in both trilogies unless you count dark skinned people like Adi Gallia and stuff so yeah it would be weird because anything AFTRR ROTJ is treading new ground lightly .

    I REALLY doubt that Finn is related to either Lando or Mace. Just because we only got two prominent black characters in the previous films, doesn't mean that more didn't exist offscreen.

    Also Rey and Kylo being cousins could also work, if they want to do a "battle for Anakin's legacy" kind of deal. In fact, it might even work better than if they were siblings.

    Rey and Kylo are most likely cousins, Rey will embody Anakin's light side and Jedi ways, Kylo will embody Anakin's Vader side and Sith ways

    Which could be rather cool if they do it well:

    -PT-The rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker, and the birth of Darth Vader.
    -OT-The fall of Darth Vader and the redemption of Anakin Skywalker.
    -ST-The battle for his legacy. Two of his descendants, from different branches of the family, fighting over what will define him. The "good and decent" man Anakin, or the evil of Darth Vader.

    Actually i think it might be a good plot twist:

    - Almost everyone are Force Sensitives (the force has awaken)
    - Kylo kills Rey in Episode VIII
    - Finn is not Force Sensitive, he is the main lead, goes to seek revenge from Kylo Ren in Episode IX

    I would pay a ticket to see that

    That would be the best way to reveal that Finn is force sensitive. Put his past in danger of the the FO.

    What every SW has been consistent with is a happy ending. Your idea would be awfully sad and dark thing to end it on. I would much rather see an ending where Rey is saved from her possible battle with Kylo Ren, and Luke and Leia reunite, and Finn is reunited with Rey, etc.
