    I could see that BB-8 is trying to find Han Solo, who happens to be on Jakku for some reason and that's how Rey finds The Falcon and then Han Solo later.

    Don't you think the "Chewie we are home" line is a strong hint they haven't seen the falcon for years?

    Yes, which is why I said that Rey is practically led to The MF by BB-8, and they are led to the last known location of Han Solo and Chewbacca, and they meet, and then Han Solo says, "Chewie...we're home," and then they all get acquainted, some blast happens, and not long after, while they're on their way to the next major scenes of The Force Awakens, Han Solo talks about the myths of the Jedi, the force, etc.

    I was waiting for that response.

    Audience members are less likely to be sympathetic to a heroic character if he leaves behind a young, flesh and blood human female who by the way probably becomes the "darling" of the fanbase. Leaving behind a droid, no matter how lovable, wouldn't make Poe look as bad to the viewers. Unless its a Japanese audience. ;)

    There's no disagreement that there is a lot of details missing from scenes that have to deal with Poe, Kylo, Hux, Phasma, Leia, etc. Heck even the Finn stuff is flimsy unless it includes him being alongside Rey. So there is no question we will be seeing various key moments that MSW missed completely. That being said I still don't believe the original searches by either party will be for Rey. MSW tends to get its Rey-centric news/spoilers correct.

    Sure, I can see that, but that's a bit of a false choice. The question isn't whether we'd rather see him leave BB8 or Rey, the question is- why does he leave anyone at all?

    There you go... so Poe Dameron get's the "message" from Lor San Tekka, hides it in BB-8, then sends BB-8 into the desert, and joins the battle.


    Is he just trying to be a hero? Or is he trying to buy some time for BB-8 to escape?

    It can't be the necklace Anakin gave to Padme as she was buried in it.

    It doesn't look like it, either.

    What it definitely isn't, is a lightsaber

    I'm not convinced of that. The only questions for me are if the length and diameter of the object match the saber hilt. Otherwise; the object definitely looks cylindrical, the visible cord would be attached to the belt hook on the bottom of the hilt (maybe a way to hang it on a wall), and there's some faint, but definite details by the artist that could be the activation plate.

    As for the length, saber hilts are 10-12 inches. That's about the length of three hands, which would align with the drawing. However, the diameter is what's throwing me off. I'm not sure the width of the open hands match the saber hilt. It looks more like they're holding a capsule or something. I don't know.

    But the way I see it, there's an argument to be made both ways for whether or not the object being passed is a saber.

    Photoshop would also allow for artistic license, or poor proportions :p. but, I don't recall ever seeing a lightsaber with that long of a cord. They have steel D or V rings. Though someone could have added and then removed a cord, but there isn't one on it now. When Leia takes it you can see the entire object.

    It looks to me like Poe is cupping something small and precious in his hands.

    But, the main thing to me is that they call it a "message". The point of it isn't the thing itself. I have long suspected an object isn't what they are really after on Jakku. They are all after a person- Rey.

    Also, when Han, Rey and Finn enter Maz's Castle, no one is carrying the light saber. It could be in BB8 still, I guess. But maybe Maz has had it all along, and they're pulling a switcheroo with that shooting script. I would not be surprised.

    Well, I guess I don't need to write that editorial now, considering that a pair of children's books have pretty much confirmed what I've been led to believe.

    Who said he leaves Jakku without looking? He could have searched for BB back near the village, where he last saw him, while Finn stumbles across Rey and BB elsewhere. Finn, Rey, and BB then leave Jakku as they are attacked. Poe makes it to the town after this and finds out that his droid left with others. Poe then gets back to the base where he is then sent to Takodana to fight the First Order.

    As I explained, there's not much time for him to look. He would have to call for a ride off of Jakku almost as soon as he crash-lands in order to get picked up, get back to the base and over to Takodana in time to fight. And how does he contact the Resistance, anyway? He has no ship and the FO would have stripped him of any comm. devices.

    If he actually gets to the town after Finn, BB8 and Rey leave, there's definitely not enough time. The only way that would work is if the black x-wing is already on Jakku. Which it just might be. But that raises more questions than it answers.

    Where do you get that there is no time? Do you know the parsecs between the planets? Do you know how much time elapses after they arrive on Takodana? Do you know where the base is in relation to Takodana? Poe probably got a comm from Finn or the TIE. Or he could use a local comm. Who knows? We don't have all the info yet.
    Poe could have contacted a ship right after the crash, went to find BB, and arrived at the town just after the Falcon left. He gets picked up soon after, flies to the base and almost immediately prepares to fly to Takodana. In the time it takes him to get back to the base and jump over to Takodana, Han and co. have some time to have their scenes and be captured during the battle. The X-wings come in after there has already been an attack. D'qar and Takodana could be relatively close to each other.
