Among the countless missteps in the sequel trilogy, one of the weirdest things was how Rey and Ben could speak across great distances. With that sort of power, you’d think that they’d have weird things to share with each other. That’s not to say they didn’t. Maybe they had weird conversations when the cameras weren’t rolling.
Imagine a world without social media or r/Showerthoughts. Well, you couldn’t share your 4 AM moments of clarity with complete strangers. Instead, Ben has no choice but to let Rey know that he’s contemplating whether lobsters are mermaids to scorpions in the underwater world. Yes, Ben. Yes, they are.
