Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Part 5)

Elsewhere on the ship Finn is sneaking through the engine room toward an escape pod.  There he stumbles upon a young woman who is crying as she clutches what looks to be the other half of a necklace worn by the buyer we see die in the opening scene of the movie.  We learn that she’s there to stun people who are deserting.  She quickly figures out that’s what Finn is trying to do and stuns him.  She must be held in some extremely high regard by Resistance leadership as she is there alone with no one to stop her from running should she choose to.

After Finn comes back to consciousness he explains to her that they’ve been tracked through hyperspace.  This sparks a conversation as to how the First Order could possibly have done this previously impossible feat.  Within about 30 seconds they offhandedly mention something that would work and not only figure out how the First Order did it but what they’d need to do to undo it so that the Resistance could escape.

So there you have it.  Two low level functionaries of the Resistance seemingly invented anew technology and a counter to it just by being told it had been done.  Here’s how this scenario would play out in today’s military:

Scene: Aboard USS Navy Destroyer USS Sullivans (DDG 68)

Petty Officer Third Class: Hey, did you hear that the enemy was able to destroy up our aircraft carrier by going back in time and blowing up the shipyard it before it was even built.

Petty Officer Second Class: What? That’s impossible.

PO3: Unless they could stabilize the dimension of timespace . . .

PO2: And create a sub-dimension that allowed them to . . .

TOGETHER: leapfrog the normal time process function!

PO3: But how do we stop them?

PO2: Well, we could always initiate a particle deceleration field around their base.

PO3: Then they wouldn’t be able to super charge the linear bypass dampers!

PO2: Now we’ll just need a master code breaker!

They bring this plan up to Poe who likes it so they contact Maz who tells them where they can find this master code breaker.  I’m not so sure that Maz is a character that really needed to be reprise their role in this movie but we see her in a holo as she’s firing a gun at unnamed foes.

Back on Ahch-To Rey suddenly wakes up and sees Kylo Ren.  She immediately grabs her blaster and fires a hole in the side of her stone hut.

He is not there, however, they are merely mind connected.  He seems just as surprised as she is and states that she could not be doing this because the effort would kill her.  This sets us up for the end of the movie.

Eventually he vanishes and the tension is broken by angry Force Nuns who we suddenly learn inhabit Luke’s island.  The weird milk creatures and Porgs are not Luke’s only company, there are also some very agitated Nuns.  They grumble in some alien language but it is not subtitled.  You have always been able to tell Star Wars’ respect for alien creatures by whether or not they are subtitled.  Apparently Force Nuns didn’t make the cut.

The next morning Rey is given her first lesson by Luke.  He tells her to reach out, she does, and then he taunts her for being an idiot.  Things quickly get out of hand as Rey tries again then immediately goes to a “dark place.”  Stones rise, rocks crack, Luke yells at her to resist and then it’s all over.

Luke says he’s only seen this once before, with Ben Solo, and that it didn’t scare him enough then but it does now.  Meanwhile, back on the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca is trying to call the Resistance while the ship is being overrun by Porgs.  I really thought they were setting this up to be a Tribble Trouble sort of situation but that subplot never materializes.

This segment ends with Kylo Ren telling Rey about the night that he destroyed Luke’s temple.  He see a maniacal Luke drawing back his lightsaber to kill Kylo Ren and Kylo responding by somehow demolishing the temple and pushing Luke back through the wall.  It appears that Rey is beginning to sympathize with him as she hears his story and presumably shares in some of his emotional memory of the event.

Next up . . . it’s high stakes action in Monte Carlo Canto Bight!

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
