I bet the difference of opinion that people have over Rose saving Finn largely comes down to whether they believe that there was a chance of Finn disabling the gun.
Those who viewed it as a sacrifice with a chance of disabling the weapon probably have issues with Rose. Those that viewed it as a pointless attack with no chance of disabling the weapon are probably okay with Rose, since she prevented a senseless waste of life.
I’m torn on it. I don’t think it’s well communicated that his attack would have no effect, only that it’s a suicide mission.
I definitely got the impression that this was it, their last chance, and just maybe this will work.
And if that is the case (which is how I read it) then Rose’s act was pretty selfish and shortsighted.
Anchorhead mentioned the (awesome) Patton quote but there is not a good chance of convincing me that it was intended to channel that. It works for him though.
I don’t agree with how you interpreted their chances. but going along with your thinking for now… Why aren’t you pissed at Poe then since he called off ‘their only chance of wining’ ?
