Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #82: Rey – Embracing Destiny

On episode 82, the Scoundrels turn their attention to Rey and how she went from scavenger on Jakku to the hope of the Jedi.

Daisy Ridley has had plenty of coverage in the news recently, so the Scoundrels talk about that and then naturally pivot to a discussion of Rey’s growth from the beginning of The Force Awakens through the end of The Last Jedi in episode 82: Rey – Embracing Destiny.

Welcome to episode 82 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Rey – Embracing Destiny. On this episode, the Scoundrels dive into a lot of coverage of Daisy Ridley as she promotes Ophelia. Since they are taking about Daisy, they then turn to Rey and her development over the course of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

  • Rey’s character flaw,
