An intriguing read. Some I fear may be far deeper than what they intended for the character, but this really highlights that Rey is constantly struggling. She spends most of the ST trying to get someone else to be the hero. It isn’t until she speaks to Luke’s ghost that she lets go of most of her issues. I disagree that when she faces Palpatine that she ever intends to join him. I think that in a good it of story telling she is almost defeated there, but rallies and uses both sabers to defeat Palpatine. I think it was a brilliant bit of movie making.
