    Question to all Rey fans.

    Under which circumstances, would you be displeased (to put it politely), on how Rey's character evolves ?

    To be more precise, when Luke changed (drastically), many pointed out, that people change, and so did Luke. So, don't complaint. If we get a new movie, and Rey is living alone in an island, having lost all hope, or turning Sith ?

    Is there something, that you can't imagine her do / will piss you off completely ?

    Stop being a warrior queen (ie. a strong woman with class) and turn into one of the insipid heroine I've seen her portrayed as in various "Reylo" fan fictions. Where all she seems to live for is being reunited with Ben. She's in her 20's now and as she gets older she might want to get married and have a family.

    The thing about Luke, is that his actions in TLJ seemed to stem from having high standards and shrinking back in shame when he failed himself. A lot of his actions seemed to be self loathing from failure.

    I think that Rey is way too practical for that. 1. She would have learned lessons from Luke and Kylo. And 2. she knows full well that she has a dark side (ie. a temper and hunger for power) and there are times when she will fail. 3. And of course there is the lessons that Luke taught her about when the Jedi attempt to be holier-than-thou evil rose.

    I have no problems with her joining the Sith maybe ins some later story-line. As long as it's for the right reasons, to re-form them or maybe to reign in some of their more destructive tendencies. I can see her getting her hands dirty for the greater good.

    Your comment made me realize that Rey may actually have ended in a place in the story that I would like to have happened but was not really aware of it yet.

    Rey knows, and we know, that she has quite a lot of dark side in her. That was depicted fully well, with the difficulty in managing her temper, the momentarily rage that made her powerful, both in Snoke's throne room and when taking down that transport with rays from her hands. Luke also said never to have seen such a leaning to the dark side in a person before, and got afraid.

    So, the saga actually ended with a kind of a more balanced, complex and down to earth hero, hasn't it? The one that shows a lot of the flaws but also the great potential of every human being. While Vader was a full dark side person and Luke could arguably be said to be more leaning to the light (if not full light), Rey shows to have both the light and the dark in her. She shows the light feelings, teachings but also the dark past and dark feelings in the movies.

    So, I guess the end of TROS could signify that the hero of the story, of its last chapter at least, is not very different from us after all, in the sense of possessing both the dark and the light aspects. I guess the journey for her, and for us is to deal with it and make the best of both worlds. I guess she chose the light by adopting the Skywalker name in memory of Luke and Leia. Now she has to find her own path and deal with all her emotions, the light aspects and her dark side legacy and make the best she can of it.

    So, the Skywalker saga may have ended with no Sith and a new kind of Jedi. So, both the Sith and the Jedi, as we knew them, could have ended. So, now a new order begins? I would love to know what will happen next.

    Good question. The reason I was okay with Luke's evolution is that it felt like a natural extension of his character based on what we saw in the OT. He was often filled with self-doubt and self-pity ("Biggs is right, I'm never getting out here!" "You ask the impossible!" "I shouldn't have come, I'm endangering the mission," "That little droid is going to get me in a lot of trouble!" "I don't even know what I'm doing here! We're wasting time!" "I can't go on alone," etc, etc.) And all of that was BEFORE he felt responsible for creating the next Vader. So his defeatist attitude in TLJ made sense to me.
    I guess if Rey comes back in a way that feels completely out of character based on what we've seen of her in the ST, it would irk me. As an extreme example, if she were to come back as a militant white supremacist, that would seem very random and wrong since there's nothing at all in the ST to indicate that she would ever go in that direction.

    Brilliant and well said. That's why I love and even admire the character so much.

    Heroism is never about running around being violent. It's about self restraint. And the great thing about Rey is that you can see (or feel) that she has an urge to cut loose. But chooses not to sink to those urges. Not because she's not some virtuous Pollyanna. But because she knows that sinking to that level diminishes herself but others as well.

    That wasn't a space ship.

    I thought that it was made pretty clear in the film what was going on in that scene She didn't blow up the freighter because she was 'pissed'. It blew up by accident when she was trying to bring it to the ground in a tug of war with Ren and her powers-which she didn't know she had- were released.

    For her to have 'blown up the space ship because she was pissed' . would have meant that 1. she didn't care about Chewbacka or his life and 2. She would not have bothered to rescue him.

    Wrong phrasing which mislead you, my apologies.
    Doesn't lighting strike constitute "Rey slinking to her urges" ?

    And once again. I said she didn't know she had those powers. It was Ren who pushed her and they manifested. That's why you see the look of horror and shame on her face when the crater blows up.

    If she had known she had them or they would have emerged she would have backed off. There was no way on earth Rey would have deliberately harmed her friend. This is the same Rey who chose to a heal the serpent, instead of just killing it.

    Sadly this is what the dark side does; would Anakin ever consider killing his wife who at that point was carrying his children? Sadly he did chock her. Also, the actor's portrayal is adamant clear. She is trying to convey what Rey is feeling at this point. Uncontrolled rage and loss of control.

    She also says it in an interview:

    Question: What do you think is fun in playing a character who is kind of, it looks might be toying with the idea of the dark side ....
    Answer : All humans have their moments


    Anyway that's my take. She momentarily snapped and gave in to the dark side. Each one has a interpretation, so no probs.

    I, Rey Skywalker, have a dream.
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 12, 2020, Original Post Date: Feb 12, 2020 ---
    I like that idea that Kylo and Rey were created to end the force. Sounds more Ergo Proxy or Texhnolyze (minus the unrelenting nihilism) instead of Matrix Revolutions. It certainly shaped my interpretation after having watched TROS.

    Ah Reylo, the most functional and heartwarming relationship since Jeyne Poole and Ramsay Bolton.

    All it's going to take is for one writer to decide they want to "re-imagine" Rey and I think you'll see fans of Rey be "unhappy" (to put it mildly) at the new interpretation. Having her turn into a Sith would be a good example. It seems as far fetched as Luke thinking about killing his nephew, but all some writer has to do is imagine it, and it becomes canon when it hits the screen. For the fans of Rey, I hope this doesn't happen, but I get the sense that Hollywood thinks to be "edgey" you have to disfigure characters that people like. Have to make them dark, broken, and/or twisted.

    I don't mind Rey giving into her dark side, because we can clearly see she has one, and we have seen examples of her giving into it. For example say the Sith begin to rise again, with some evil villain. They are raining death and destruction and the only way that Rey can stop them is to wrest control from the leader and take over. I also don't mind if she plays dirty for some greater good now and again. I am going to assume that Leia taught her some political strategy. But not if she's turned into a power hungry villain like her Palpy or Snoke who just want power for the sake of it.

    I don't see Rey being re-imagined should they want to do a new film with her 10+ from now, especially if they invite Daisy Ridley back to reprise the role. But other forms of media yes. For examples. I was going to by one of the comic books featured with her in it, until I read a review saying she came across as too angry (and I guess without a reason) so I passed on it.

    As a Rey fan I have a certain image of her in my head and I see her and if she's not being portrayed that way. Cool and calm responsible I am not interested.
