    Guys lets face it Finn has to be a jedi to survived fighting the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo Skywalker you have to be a force user(SHUT UP GRIEVOUS!) also when Starkiller destroyed the NR's home planet we see Finn hear the death of all those people like ol' Ben did so what if Finn is a force user what would he do that would show Luke and Rey that he also needs to be trained let me know what you think

    Yeah TFA was Reys time VIII will be Finns, Numerous clues to him being FS. Him being in a coma then waking up could awaken the force idk have to wait and see I guess.

    The question that has to be answered is "who will train him?". I was going with Maz until I saw the film, now I'm not so sure. I don't know what happened to her after the attack. The scene where she gives Leia Luke's lightsaber was cut out completely, so maybe she's still on her planet. I think the coma was "Force induced". Why, I don't know but I just think it was the Force's way of protecting Finn and that Finn will possibly be contacted by deceased Jedi like: Yoda, Obi-Wan, Mace, and others during his time in a coma.

    im not saying your wrong but if Luke dies and Rey is turnt to the dark side(even though its unlikely) who would be able to fight Her also Finn could not survive the Kylo Ren fight without using the force(Grevious does not count)

    We will get new characters in other two movies.
    Also Luke and Leia are force sensitive.

    Actualy Mother ( Leia ) vs. Son ( Kylo Ren ) would be interesting duel.

    A few facts lead me to suspect (hope) that Finn is FS. One is that Maz, who is a non-jedi force user (according to the visual dictionary), encouraged him to use the lightsaber. This suggests that she could have seen potential in him as a force user.

    Another is from the movie perspective, that it would be strange for Finn to abandon the blaster for a lightsaber in this movie, and use it so much - in a movie when he is beginning to discover his new purpose, I might add - and then to promptly go back to a blaster afterward.

    We will probably have a much better idea in less than a year when the marketing starts coming out for Episode 8. Will he hold a lightsaber or blaster in his first poster? Suspenseful...

    I think they' ll toy with us with this idea even in the next one... ;) Finn is a regular guy, one of us. He doesnt talk wookie nor droid, can't fix hypedrive or even pilot anything. His true power comes from his common sense and his good heart. He is scared but willing to risk it all for his friends. In the end I am sure he will guide our tourmented jedis and show true potential.

    I thought Finn has already awaken?? Awaken to his conscience.
    Maz encouraged him because Finn wanted a weapon and a lightsaber IS a weapon. I don't want Finn to be hampered by this FS stuff suspense again. I want him to be useful to the resistance. He has good instinct and the inside knowledge of the First Order doings. I want him and Poe to go on missions, on adventures.

    I'm thinking more subtle. Maybe a vision of his family.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 22, 2015, Original Post Date: Dec 22, 2015 ---
    A point about Maz. Her reaction to Finn at the table was weird and dramatic to be just about him wanting to run. She was knocking crap off the table, and stuff. We know her dialogue was extended from the TV spots, and we know the scene were she gives Leia the lightsaber and tells her to give it to Finn was cut.

    It seems to me Maz had much more to say about Finn than they put in the movie, probably because they didn't want to leave too many obvious clues to his Force sensitivity and spoil VIII.

    I'd have to say he isn't Force sensitive. Unlike Anakin, Luke and Rey there was no mention, hint, suggestion or indication that Finn is Force sensitive. Rey will be the Jedi, Poe the pilot and Finn the soldier.

    I think he is Force Sensitive, but I won't be upset if he ins't so long as he gets to keep a lightsaber (the Skywalker one if Rey builds her own, or a new one if not). I think TFA made it just ambiguous for Finn so that Episodes VIII and IX have the option of exploring that if they want.

    The only difference is there has never been a SWs story that revealed two force sensitivities in the same movie. Obi-Wan was already established when Anakin found out, Leia had gone without knowing until the very end, despite that hint in Empire when Luke called to her.

    They didn't make it known for Finn because it was Rey's moment, but the fact that TFA makes pains to have Rey and Finn mirror each other, I think, is foreshadowing of a partnership they will have later.

    There was some effort to often portray Finn as somewhat bumbling and afraid –in contrast to other characters in TFA. In a way, he represents the majority of "us". Despite this, the character seeks to overcome his flaws, and become useful, courageous and more experienced/able.

    The Star Wars gig has always been well understood to have drawn on Campbell's "Hero's Journey" typical character development and no one fits that role more than Finn, as he had the most potential for growth.

    In the same sense, he is much like a hobbit in the company of veteran heroes— in that his character represents the will to goodness. Yes, Rey is new to the hero role as well, but comes into it as the prodigal "whiz kid"...and is immediately "good at everything", essentially. Finn has much more growth to develop.

    In short, Finn represents the common person who, despite not feeling up to the task, acts against the "evil forces" and finds that he/she can be inspired to affect change...thus further inspiring others.

    While I don't think it will turn out that he is FS, my money is on Finn soldiering on to become a great leader- as mentioned previously- "A Big Deal" in (and for) the resistance. He'll be one who eventually inspires and unites the systems against the FO.
