I like the parallel of Luke needing to confront Vader and Luke needing to confront Ben Solo. (Above) Prior to TLJ the last one-on-one conversation we witnessed between Leia and Luke took place on Endor in ROTJ. What a memorable and revealing scene - Luke telling her that he has to confront Vader again because he’s his Father, that he feels the good in him, and that he can turn him back to the good side. He tells Leia that if he doesn’t make it back, that she’s the only Hope for the Alliance, and that she has the same power he does: “You have that power too. In time you’ll learn to use it as I have. The Force is strong in my family. My Father has it. I have it. My sister has it...yes, it’s you Leia.” (Below) 34 years later, we get this beautiful farewell one-on-one conversation between them in TLJ. And contained within it, Luke tells Leia that he’s here to confront Ben. But unlike his last confrontation with Vader where he saves him, here he tells Leia that he can’t save Ben. But might Ben still get a redemption arc in IX? It’s hard to tell. Can’t wait to see IX!
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Vitiate the Deranged Father? 😒
