And I hate to be a wet blanket, but Rey using lightning on Finn doesn’t strike me as feeling right for that moment. It could’ve been scripted that way, but with what we have to work with Finn still flies backward and Rey doesn’t blink about any of it.
Yeah I’m not a big fan of Rey using force lighting on Finn, feel like it would probably look weird especially since ILM force lighting is hard to replicate unless you do it in Nuke
At this point we aren’t talking about her electrocuting him, but rather her fingers would crackle with lightning. It would give the impression that she is using the dark side to push him back.
And yeah, I don’t see why people are degrading this idea so much. In the original film, there is literally NO purpose to Finn going after her. At least this way it would let the audience know that she’s losing it.
And as for her reaction to what she does, she’s taking out her regrets and frustrations by swinging her lightsaber on Kylo. At least that’s what the original novelization said.
