Thanks for my blueberry muffin in bed today. I’m planning on grabbing flowers after work bc everyone’s doing it but I’m glad we agree that this is just another night. You’ll run to the door, we hug for 1 whole minute, order a pizza, you throw on 3 episodes of Friends and then we work on a baby. Be home at 6 best pal. ❤️
This Ahch-To Temple scene where Luke gives Rey her “Second Lesson” on why the Jedi must end is a captivating and beautifully shot sequence. The exchanges they have are so engaging and it allows us to further understand why Luke has resigned himself from the Jedi Order and why he’s closed himself off from the Force. (First Image) In this scene, Luke tells Rey that the Jedi not only allowed Darth Sidious (Palpatine) to rise and create the Empire, but that it was a Jedi Master (Obi-Wan) who was responsible for the training and creation of Vader (this of course is Luke’s personal belief as many would argue it was Palpatine’s manipulation of Anakin coupled with Anakin’s uncontrollable anger that was responsible for the creation of Vader). I like Rey’s response. She tries to snap Luke out of it, telling him that he was the Jedi that saved Vader, that he saw the conflict in Vader, that he believed he wasn’t gone, that he could be turned. And Luke did. He redeemed his father. (Swipe to Second Image) Luke felt he could accomplish anything given his Legendary status and tried to train a new generation of Jedi but he created Kylo Ren. He felt he had failed, and that led him into seclusion on the island and this belief that the Jedi must end. The Jedi repeatedly failed and his own failure as a legend solidified that there is no hope to the Jedi Order. Again, i like Rey’s hopeful reply that the galaxy may need a Legend. It’s Rey that gets through to Luke in the end (along with Yoda’s encouraging words as they watch the Force Tree burn). Luke Force Projects himself on Crait (essentially sacrificing his life), and takes on Kylo and the First Order, allowing Leia, Rey and the remains of the Resistance to flee and rebuild. Thanks to @ramikasfy for discussing this scene with me, all his insights, and inspiring me to make this edit.
