The dagger is the reason Rey goes off on her own to Kylo’s quarters, so I feel that any attempt to remove its use would feel more awkward than accepting a dumb moment.
It’s dumb, but it’s not one of the big problems I had with the movie when I left.
Agree so much here. Tried to remove it from my edit but its sticky.
As for the dagger crossguard part, I just removed that part completely from my edit. Easier because mine is a 3-in-1, but Rey navigating the deathstar was almost a repeat of her introduction, searching the old star destroyer. She just knows her stuff really well from being a scavenger that everyone likes to remind her of so much. From there, it made sense that she could figure out quickly where Palps thone room was, then the wayfinder seems to “reveal” itself. Might be too hard to relate to two movies later though.
