Yeah me neither. And honestly I didn’t even think it was him until someone pointed it out to me. I’d forgotten about him in TFA enough not to even notice that he was in TLJ - or maybe I thought he was just a random Mon Calamarian (or whatever it’s called) since because of the RO admiral I guess I thought that species had tons of high ranking officers in the Alliance? I don’t know. All I know is that next day after coming back from the theaters for TLJ the fanbase was tearing itself apart and one of the reasons was Ackbar’s death, and I couldn’t believe that I’d missed it, thinking it had been something as great as it was being pointed out. Not the case at all, though.
