^Did we ever learn what the third lesson was off-screen? I’ve read the novelization and such but I can’t remember
The “third lesson” was that scene in the TLJ novelization (it was in the deleted scenes too) where Luke claims that the Caretaker village is being invaded by pirates. He tells Rey that a true Jedi wouldn’t save them, but Rey runs off anyway. Once she gets there, she finds that it was actually a big party all along. Luke tells her that it was supposed to be a lesson on how Jedi beliefs don’t matter anymore, but Rey gets pissed and storms away.
Some fan edits have added that scene back into the movie, but Hal’s didn’t, so Cinefy’s idea was supposed to be another way of incorporating a third lesson into the trilogy.
I know. If this third lesson scene was in TLJ, then the lesson would be… things don’t appear how they seem. She’s already learned that from Luke ending up being a hermit instead of the epic Jedi she (and we) all thought he would be. I suppose it is a major theme in the film, but it’s unnecessary to do this again, when Rey has already been unintentionally taught this lesson from the very beginning of the film. And whole the setting of her going to like a fun Caretaker party is just one I don’t really like, honestly lol.
So in the context of the film without that scene, I think what I took from it still stands. Rey’s third lesson is one you don’t need to be sat down on a rock and told, like a typical Jedi Master and Padawan. That aspect of the Jedi should be gone. It leads to horror every time. Or something like it. Or maybe I’m completely wrong and some edits are way better with that scene included; I haven’t seen many for TLJ outside of Hal’s!
