That sounds interesting, but wouldn’t work.
BB-8 is damaged during training and her and Poe discuss it.
I feel like we could pass off Poe’s comments as “paranoid parent and/or trying to distract Rey from the Falcon” if the scene is pruned carefully. Here’s a rough edit of the scene that I was testing out. (I was also seeing if I could cut out Hux’s spy subplot, so all references to that have also been removed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )
I like the idea but you can literally see BB-8 is damaged, don’t think this works
