My first reaction to Mike’s time-travel prediction was “Ha, yeah right!”. Then after hearing him list the deflector shield, Palpatine’s laugh, the medal, Luke’s destroyed lightsaber… it wasn’t that funny anymore. Also his other theory about Palpy possessing Kylo gave me a headache. But overall, I’m currently in a pretty good spot with the story because it can only get better from here… or well, it could always crash and burn in flames… but that’s unlikely.
EDIT: The deflector shield and the lightsaber are things which can be reforged easily.
I forgot the lightsaber was only split in half, not blown to smithereens.
