Did Mark Hamill And His Wife Try To Coerce A Porn Star Into Having An Abortion?

I’ve been a pretty big fan of Mark Hamill over the decades.  So I’ve let his anti-Trump diatribes slide for the most part.  Partly because he’s surrounded by SJW idiots in his chosen career.  Partly because I believe it’s perfectly okay to criticize any politician.  Partly because Mark clearly got screwed by Disney and Lucasfilm.  Partly because I give more leeway to older folks.  And of course, partly because he played Luke Skywalker.

But that may be about to change.

nathan-hamill-maegan-chen-8

A story published by Yahoo Lifestyle back in 2016 and written by Maegen Chen, tells a disturbing story about Mark’s son, Nathan Hamill.  Maegen Chen dated Nathan Hamill.  The story also involves Nathan’s parents, his mother and Mark Hamill.  If this story is true, then my days of being a Mark Hamill fan may very well be over.

Each reader will have to decide for themselves if this account is true.

IT HAPPENED TO ME: Mark Hamill’s Son Got Me Pregnant, And His Family Tried to Make Me Get an Abortion

That’s the headline.  Here’s the story:

After Nathan couldn’t convince me to terminate my pregnancy, he stopped talking to me and his mother started emailing me.

I know I have made bad decisions in my life — just like everyone else. I also know that the decisions I’ve made do not warrant other people to treat me like I’m garbage. But that’s what I experienced when Nathan Hamill, son of Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, got me pregnant earlier this year [2016].

About three months after we started dating, I found out I was pregnant. It was a major surprise since I had been on birth control. I told him immediately. His response was simply, “Fuck.”

He then told me he’d really like for me to get an abortion. I wasn’t sure what response I was expecting, but it wasn’t that. Maybe I wanted him to ask, What do YOU want to do? It would have been better to at least give me that first.

“It makes me feel awful that my kid could be out there when I don’t want to raise one,” Nathan said over text message. “But I can’t force you to do what I think is best for all of us. If you’re keeping it then it sucks that our relationship had to end this way cause I really like you.”

“I really like you, too,” I replied, “That’s why this is so hard for me. If I couldn’t do it I’d never contact you or ask you for anything. I’d never ask you to help me raise it.”

“Don’t you think the kid not having a dad is fucked up though?” he asked. “It would suck for the kid. If I don’t have any responsibly, I would feel horrible for the kid.”

“If you’re not around then why would you think about it though?” I asked. “Wouldn’t you just move on with your life?”

“No. I’d think about it,” he answered. “And whether or not I did, it’s still unfair to the kid. That’s the bottom line.”

At seven weeks, I agreed to an abortion. Due to scheduling conflicts with clinics, I ended up getting a medical abortion, using pills. It was a horrible experience, and during the second day of bed rest, Nathan was drunk at a bar the entire time. I thought maybe I deserved that.

Then I learned the medical abortion didn’t take — and I now had a high-risk pregnancy going full-force. At this point, I felt the need to keep the baby. After all I went through, I decided it was meant to be, and I was happy with that decision. I felt the guilt of everything I did to this baby, and to make it up to her, I’d love her forever.

I thought Nathan’s constant badgering would end there, but it didn’t. When I told him I was keeping it, I clearly expressed it wasn’t about his family’s money. Child support was brought up, and at first he was slightly communicative, saying it would be $500 a month, with health insurance. I was fine with that. Then he dropped it to $325, with no health insurance for the baby. Again, I said it was fine. Never did I expect money from a trust fund or his parents, and I have kept all the digital communication to prove it.

But at that point, his mother took over with emailing me, and he stopped talking to me.

“Maegan you blew it,” she wrote in an email. “When he got to London, he showed me pictures of you and was excited you were coming over. Then you got pregnant. Now if you thought that would keep you together, you calculated wrong. If you’d had the procedure, then he would have felt closer to you for that, for knowing you cared about him and his feelings. Your time in London would have been fabulous. You would still have a relationship with him now. You still could, if and only if, you have the procedure. But it is up to you. No coercing. No more contact with you about it. It is your decision and only yours to make. As he has told you time and time again, he is not ready to be a father yet. But instead you have given him ultimatums and threatening to have the baby if he didn’t do this or that or you didn’t come to London. He has tried to please you as much as he possibly could under the extreme pressure and uncertainty that you will (or did) have the procedure.”

He wanted nothing to do with the baby, which I was fine with. But both Nathan and his mother told me it was “unfair” that a child would have only one parent.

It’s bizarre for purported progressives to keep saying how unfair it is for a child to have one parent when they’ve spent so many decades lionizing the single mother.  If this is true, then clearly this isn’t about what’s best for the child.  It’s about the selfish wants of the irresponsible father and hoity-toity grandmother.

“I am devastated for his child,” she wrote. “No child should only have one parent. I know it happens all the time but I would never chose to do it. I would never want to raise a child without the father around. It’s hard enough to do it with a partner, but alone, it would be far too lonely. You want Nathan around now? How are you going to feel after the baby is born and he is not around? I couldn’t do it. It is so selfish.”

Apparently, death and oblivion is a better fate than having a single child.  At least in the progressive pea-brain.

Farther along in that email, she wrote, “I pray for this poor child. I told you I was adopted and not knowing who your parents are and wondering why they didn’t want you is something only another adopted person knows and when I meet anyone that has been adopted, we have an instant deep bond that is unexplainable to anyone else. This is the only reason I feel strongly that you should not have this baby and for no other reason than for the child. The best option for a less than ideal situation.”

“So Maegan, once again, as I have said before, it is totally up to you,” his mother wrote in another email. “Mark and I told you that if you choose to do the procedure we would be more than willing to pay for it. Do not use that as an excuse. It is not an excuse. We could and would pay the clinic if and when it is done but at this point we are not going to contact you again. You can have an attorney contact Nathan but until the baby is born and a paternity test is done and then the courts determine what Nathan is responsible for, you will not hear from him. Then and only then will you get a check, no more. We have welcomed you into our home and treated you as family only to have you say things that just aren’t true and hurt us and our son.”

I finally just told him I’d get the abortion. He was eager to get it done — happy, because he was finally getting his way. He said he’d take care of me after, and that we’d be together. His words weren’t comforting, but they were all I had.

He took me to an abortion clinic at 21 weeks where I learned it would be a major procedure. I told the nurse at Planned Parenthood what was happening, and I showed her the emails and messages. She told me it was coercion, and I shouldn’t have the abortion if I didn’t want to do. She offered to give me paperwork stating I’d gotten it done.

Under stress, I lied, which I know wasn’t right to do. I let Nathan think I went through with it. I told him it was done.

Communication was scarce after that. I had a lawyer contact him. He ignored it. I spent months trying to get affairs in order and get some sort of child support in order. No one would talk to me. No one would give me any sort of consideration to the life of the baby I was having.

At this point, I was angry. After all the options I offered, he still treated me like garbage. I decided to approach a well-established lawyer who would take my case.

But of course now I’m the bad guy. I’m the “horrible gold-digging slut” who ruined his life. It’s all my fault. It got back to me that Nathan is telling people his rights were violated, but what about my rights? He was given opportunities to get off scot-free, but he and his family felt it was better to push me to do something I truly didn’t want to do.

In a less-that-great situation, I did what I thought was right. In the end, I’m happy with that choice, and I’m happy to welcome my daughter into this world.

xoJane has reached out to Nathan Hamill for comment. We have not received a response, but we will post an update if we do.

There is more at the dailymail.co.uk.

Now, to be fair, this story came out about a year after The Force Awakens, and about a year prior to The Last Jedi.  So it’s entirely possible that this story is some kind of shakedown sparked by Mark Hamill’s newfound fame in the wake of the Sequel Trilogy.  Who knows.

What I do know, is that SJWs are a nest of vipers.  It’s one thing for the relevant parties to choose to have an abortion.  But it’s another thing entirely for people to coerce others into having an abortion.  This story greatly saddens me.  I sincerely hope it’s not true.

UPDATE:

The story gets a little more sordid.  Apparently, Maegen Chen is a former porn star according to the NY Post.

Maegan Chen

Luke Skywalker wants me to ‘abort my baby,’ says ex-porn star

She said she met the actor when she stayed with the family in London this spring while the next “Star Wars” installment was being filmed. He told her his son, Nathan, 37, “is not ready to be a father,” she said.

“Mark Hamill told me that I shouldn’t bring a child into the world that nobody wants,” Chen told The Post.

When Chen refused and returned to the US in May, the Hamill empire struck back. In an email from an account linked to Mark Hamill, seen by The Post, Marilou admonished Chen.

“Meagan, you blew it,” Marilou allegedly wrote on June 21.

“I don’t want you to think this is a money making endeavour because you will be extremely disappointed,” wrote the mom, 61, who is the chief financial officer of Hamill’s production company.

Chen broke up with Nathan soon after her visit to London. A spokesman for the Hamills said, “This matter is of a sensitive nature, as well as confidential, and as such, the Hamill family is unable to provide a comment at this time.”

UPDATE:

Maegan has responded to my tweet, and has clarified the porn star angle of this story:

She apparently thinks that colonial imperialism and/or imperial colonialism was responsible for cooling the planet.  Perhaps as a precursor to excuse a future genocide for the benefit of the imaginary climate crisis.  Though Rebecca makes no mention of the indigenous people who tore hearts out of the torsos of living people in order to appease their gods.  Did they affect the climate in any way?  Only progressive brainiacs can tell us.

Rebecca10

So was there a lot of colonial imperialism and/or imperial colonialism going on in the 1970s?

Now, some may argue that Rebecca was just talking about white racists and sexists.  But remember, Rebecca is an SJW.  That means her stories are very likely imaginary hate hoaxes, given the SJW proclivity to commit hate hoaxes all of the time.

JJ Abrams Has To Answer For The Last Jedi

jj-abrams

JJ gives a diplomatic answer.

Empire Magazine reports:

The crew’s return is emblematic of Abrams’ approach to the final instalment of the Skywalker Saga, picking up the baton from Johnson’s middle film, nurturing seeds he first planted in The Force Awakens, and bringing the whole thing home. And while Johnson took several plot threads – Rey’s parentage, Snoke’s fate – in surprising directions that some fans are still unhappy with, Abrams had no qualms with incorporating Johnson’s choices.

“I never found myself trying to repair anything,” he tells Empire. “If I had done VIII, I would have done things differently, just as Rian would have done things differently if he had done VII. But having worked on television series, I was accustomed to creating stories and characters that then were run by other people. If you’re willing to walk away from the thing that you created and you believe it’s in trustworthy hands, you have to accept that some of the decisions being made are not gonna be the same that you would make. And if you come back into it, you have to honor what’s been done.”

Now, Empire Magazine doesn’t print the question they asked Abrams, which caused him to give this answer.  Generally speaking, this is a fairly standard “every director would do things differently” kind of statement.  But the fact that he was asked about it at all, and felt the need to give an answer of this length indicates that there are in fact problems with the franchise, and The Last Jedi.

Thanks to Grahtz for the tip.

Dr. Aphra Coming To A Merciful End

Lucasfilm’s much-ballyhooed lesbianic Indiana Jones in space is ending with a quiet snore.

Aphra

Most strong female characters are now required to wear goggles.

Aphrascrawl

Why is it coming to an end?  Lucasfilm will tell you one thing.  But comichron will tell you another.

Dr. Aphra debuted in December 2016 with 99K copies sold.

AphraDecember2016

The most recent sales data for Aphra, from August 2019, shows it hovering around 20K.

AphraAugust2019

It’s almost as though the free market is rejecting Dr. Aphra.  So it’s no wonder that the cultural stewards over at Lucasfilm hate capitalism.

Bombers Do Mining In Rose Tico Comic

Does anyone recall when B-52 bombers were repurposed for mining operations?  No one does.  That’s because bombing aircraft and mining equipment require different kinds of engineering.  So leave it to the “creators” at today’s Lucasfilm to come up with something so monumentally stupid.  But let’s be perfectly honest here; expecting the “creators” at Lucasfilm to develop interesting new mining equipment is probably unreasonable.

Remember those goofy bombers from The Last Jedi?  Well, turns out they’re being repurposed to mine “deeper, more violently.”  Let me guess.  This is a moronic lecture on the perfectly safe practice of fracking, or something equally stupid.

Possible Detailed Episode IX Plot Outline

Reddit user JediPaxis has been busy.  He or she claims to be an insider and has been posting a series of “basic plot outlines” for The Rise of Skywalker.  JediPaxis has also posted purported images from a leaked style guide for Episode IX, which you can see here and here.

DumpsterFire

The basic plot of Episode IX

Recently, he’s posted synopses for the 3 Acts.  These have not been confirmed in any way, this is a pure rumor.  JediPaxis claims to have inside sources, but he could easily be lying, or a Lucasfilm influencer trying to muddy the waters in an effort to save anticipation for Episode IX.  Readers have to be the judge.

ACT I

The Basic Plot of The Rise of Skywalker, Updated and Expanded: Act I

Disclaimers:

Due to the fact that The Rise of Skywalker is currently going through a round of additional photography and the basic nature of leaked information in general, I cannot guarantee that everything you read here will make it to the final cut of the film just as I describe, but I feel highly confident in the accuracy of my information at this point in time based on the current state of the film.

I will also tell you that due to increased activity of other leakers such as Making Star Wars or Bespin Bulletin, not all of what you will read here will be new information, but I will tell you that my plot summaries are assembled exclusively from my own sources, so any similar/identical information to other reports can (and in my opinion, should) be used as corroboration of the validity of both sources.

I am going to be making 3 ‘updated and expanded’ plot summary posts split up into 3 acts releasing over the coming days/weeks. These are not official act breaks, this is just how I would break the film up into 3 parts.

SPOILER WARNING!
If you do not want to know what happens in IX, read no farther.

ACT I
[The Past- Unknown Location].

Luke is training Leia as a Jedi. Lightsabers are involved. Leia reveals to Luke that she is pregnant and Leia makes the decision to end her Jedi training due to the impending birth of her son.

[The Present- The Resistance’s Jungle Base]

Years later, Leia has picked up where her brother left off and has been helping Rey learn the ways of the Jedi. Rey is first seen doing some meditative/ “mental” Force training, but is struggling with it. In frustration, she asks Leia if she can do a physical training course instead. This is what we see Rey doing in the jungle forrest in the D23 First Look.(1, 2) It appears that Rey has more physical fortitude than she has mental strength.

[Forrest planet bathed in red light]

Supreme Leader Kylo Ren has been aware of a dark power behind his predecessor and former master, Snoke. Kylo has been spending his time as leader of the First Order with the purpose of locating this power. Generals Hux and Pryde have been following Kylo around on his quest and are beginning to get very frustrated with what they see as a fool’s errand. They see this as a waste of First Order time and resources. When we catch up with the villains of our story, Kylo is leading an assault on this planet with the purpose of finding Darth Vader’s wayfinder device. The device reveals coordinates within the Unknown Regions and Kylo is confident that this will reveal the source of Snoke’s power. Kylo Ren slaughters his way through the natives and is eventually led to “the oracle” who gives him the wayfinder.

[Asteroid Base]

We pick up with Finn and Poe on the Millennium Falcon, accompanied by a hand full of unfamiliar alien characters traveling to an icy asteroid base to meet with a First Order informant. This informant, an alien, is acting as a middle man between a First Order mole and our heroes. The First Order arrives and begins attacking the base. The assault causes forces our heroes to make a hasty exit by what was described to me as “light springing” away. Light springing involves making the jump to light speed without plotting a course or a predetermined destination. As we all remember, making the jump to light speed without precise calculations could have dire consequences such as ‘flying right through a star or bouncing too close to a supernova’. The Falcon makes a hand full of these springs to throw the First Order off their trail, but as a result they are forced to deal with the consequences of such a risky maneuver. After surviving the dangers of light springing, our heroes plot a course to the secret Resistance jungle base.

[The Unknown Regions- Exogol]

After obtaining Vader’s device Kylo travels to the place specified by the wayfinder. It takes him to the Unknown Regions and a dead planet of flat, black rock. I previously reported that the planet where Kylo finds Vader’s wayfinder was called Exogol. Since then my understanding has evolved and I’ve been told that this planet actually bears that name. Kylo lands outside a giant cube, floating just above the ground and begins walking toward it. Kylo walks between the cube and the ground and once he reaches the center he discovers an elevator leading down below the planet’s surface. He follows teh lift down and finds an old man, near death and lying in bed and being tended to by cloaked aids. My source believes these aids to be referred to as Sith Loyalists. The old man identifies himself as Darth Sideous. Kylo initially dismisses the old man, knowing that the Emperor had died over 30 years prior over the forest moon of Endor. Feeling that this must be a trick, Kylo claims that there must be some other explanation, such as this man being a clone. My sources specifically tell me that the Palpatine refutes the idea of him being a clone and affirms that he survived his fall. After his defeat at Endor, he left the known galaxy and traveled to the Unknown Regions to rebuild his Empire. Despite his skepticism, Palpatine begins to reel Kylo in and subsequently tells him of something known as a “Force Dyad”. The Force produces two incredibly strong users and when they unite together, both become stronger than either one could be on their own. Palpatine believes Kylo Ren and Rey to be the two halves of this dyad and shares this knowledge with Rey. (Note: I previously wrote that Palpatine wanted them to become “master and apprentice” since then this has been clarified to me as Palpatine seeking the two members of the Dyad) Palpatine claims that he seeks the Dyad because he is weak and dying and he wants the Dyad to rule together once he’s gone. Palpatine orders Kylo to bring Rey to him and turn her so that the Dyad will be a strong, unified force of darkness. Palpatine also reveals that he has been amassing an armada of Star Destroyers equipped with Death Star tech, each one capable of destroying a planet on its own. Generals Hux and Pryde are tasked with rounding up children in large numbers to train and staff his armada.

[The Resistance’s Jungle Base]

Finn and Poe return to the Resistance base bearing the knowledge obtained from their encounter with the First Order informant. The duo brings this knowledge to General Leia and tell her what they know about Kylo’s mission to the Unknown Regions, but without any leads to where he went or how he got there, the Resistance is at a dead end. Leia mentions that she has a contact who was seeking a link to the Unknown Regions long ago and may be willing to help. Leia dispatches the two of them along with Rey, Chewbacca, BB-8 and C-3PO to Passana to meet with her contact and see what help he may be able to provide.

[Passana]

When our heroes arrive on the planet, they discover that a giant festival is going on. What they thought would be an easy mission has now turned into a much more complicated affair. They attempt to lay low and to blend in. Unsurprisingly, Chewbacca struggles with blending in because it’s very difficult to hide a 7 foot tall wookiee from prying eyes. Rey encounters an alien in the crowds who takes a liking to her, presenting her with a handmade necklace as a gift. She is asked her name and she responds “Rey”. When asked her family name, she replies that she does not have one. At this time, Kylo establishes a connection with Rey through their bond. Their conversation ends with Kylo grabbing the necklace from around Rey’s neck. This necklace proves to be the key to the First Order discovering their location. After the connection ends, Rey warns her comrades that the First Order is on their way and that they must hurry to find Leia’s contact. It is at this point that instead of finding their contact, their contact reveals himself to them after having spotted an old wookiee friend of his out of the crowd. It’s Lando Calrissian.

Greetings and introductions are exchanged Lando tells them of a dagger that may help them find what they seek. Many years prior, Lando and Luke went in search of this dagger that was owned by a Sith loyalist named Ochie (spelling not confirmed). They tracked Ochie to Passana when the trail went cold. When met with the question of why he never left the planet after the search for Ochie and his dagger ended, Lando tells the team that he had a young child at the time of his and Luke’s quest. While they were out searching for the dagger, the First Order stole his child. After having failed to protect his child from the First Order, Lando and Luke parted ways and he stayed on Passana ever since. This story strikes a chord with Finn having been stolen from his own family at an incredibly young age as well. Lando points them in the direction of the last known coordinates of Ochie’s ship, where the trail went cold all those years ago, wishes them luck in succeeding where he failed all those years ago but decides to sit this one out.

Our heroes follow the trail that Lando pointed out to them and eventually they happen upon Ochie’s ship. When Rey sees the ship, it triggers some memories. It’s the same ship that we see leaving Jakku in Rey’s vision from TFA. Before the implications of this can sink in, the ground beneath them gives out and the crew gets sucked below the surface of the sand. They find themselves in a series of underground tunnels where they discover the remains of Ochie and the dagger that Lando and Luke sought after. Rey feels a very strong connection to this weapon, but can’t quite articulate it. The dagger has writing on it in a language that nobody can identify. It’s then handed over to 3PO who identifies the writing as a Sith language, but he reveals that he is unable to translate the writing due to restrictions in his programing. At this time, a plan is made to hack into C-3PO’s programming to bypass the restrictions. Poe mentions that he has an old contact that might be able to help them out. Chewbacca takes possession of the dagger and the group’s attention shifts to finding a way out of the caves. During their escape attempt, the team runs into a giant, very aggressive, sand worm (who presumably created the tunnels). A battle with the sand worm ensues and our heroes end up backed into a corner, preparing to meet their fate when Rey notices a detail. The worm is injured. In a display of previously unknown power, Rey is able to heal the worm’s injuries, satiating the worm and providing the heroes the chance they needed to escape.

Once they crew exits the cave system, they see a First Order Star Destroyer in the sky and know that Kylo Ren has found them. Once they realize this they (correctly) reason that the First Order would have already found the Falcon, making that plan of escape impossible. The Falcon is boarded and subsequently taken back to the Star Destroyer. In an act of desperation, the crew boards Ochie’s ship and attempt to get it working. It’s on this ship that the crew discovers the new droid D-O. Rey senses that Kylo is coming for her, so she takes off on her own to confront him and buy her friends some time. (This is where the TIE interceptor flip sequence from the first teaser takes place). While Kylo and Rey are engaged, the Knights of Ren and the First Order head for Ochie’s ship and our other heroes. Chewbacca splits off from the crew and attempts to delay the Knights, but it captured. The dagger is taken from him and he boards a First Order prisoner transport. Rey and Kylo both notice Chewbacca being taken captive and being brought to a transport ship during their confrontation. As the ship takes off, Rey shifts her attention from Kylo to her captured friend and begins to use the Force to stop the transport and pull it back to the ground. Kylo attempts to counteract this by pushing the ship away. Control over the ship becomes a battle between Kylo and Rey, much like their battle for Anakin’s lightsaber in TLJ. Kylo begins to gain the upper hand which angers Rey. In her frustration, lightning shoots from her hand, destroying the the transport ship and killing all its passengers. Devastated by what she just did, Rey collapses. While all this is transpiring, Poe, Finn, 3PO and BB-8 get Ochie’s ship in the air just in time to fly over to pick up a distraught Rey. With no Lando, no Falcon, no dagger and no Chewbacca, our heroes limp away from the desert planet.

ACT II

ACT II

[Kijimi]

The heroes of the Resistance make their way to the snow dusted planet of Kijimi to execute their plan to discover what secrets the dagger held. Despite not being in possession of the dagger anymore, 3PO tells the crew that he has the message committed to memory, so all hope is not lost. Poe tracks down an old contact of his, Zorri Bliss, who brings them to a small creature named Babbu Frik (again, spelling not confirmed) to hack 3PO’s programming to read the Sith language on the dagger. Frik tells everyone that he can unlock the message to be read, but in doing so C-3PO’s memory will be wiped. Still reeling from the loss of Chewbacca, the heroes argue about finding another way to get the job done, but in an act of self sacrifice C-3PO voluntarily consent to the modifications, knowing that (for all intents and purposes) the droid we’ve all known for years will essentially die. According to my sources, this scene is reportedly one of the most emotional in the film. Frik completes the hack and 3PO is now able to read the message inscribed on the dagger. (This action creates the red eyed C-3PO seen in the D23 footage) The translated text points them to the location of the Emperor’s own wayfinder. Having served his purpose, 3PO’s memory wipe begins and he shuts down. Once the memory wipe is complete, 3PO reboots with a completely empty memory.

While on Kijimi, Kylo initiates another mind bond with Rey to try and divine her location a second time. Kylo spends much of this time antagonizing Rey, some of this conversation revolves around her parents and the truth behind the dagger. It was once used to murder her parents. Many years ago, Ochee was sent to murder Rey’s parents who were trying to hide Rey from the galaxy. Ochee succeeded, leaving her parents as nobodies to be forgotten by that galaxy. Where Ochee failed was with Rey. He could not find her so he left her behind on Jakku. This is what Rey remembers, the ship leaving in the wake of her parent’s murder, not her parents abandoning her. Rey lashes out at Kylo during this bond and their lightsabers clash. Having gotten everything he needed from Rey during this session, he cuts off the bond. The Star Destroyers arrive on Kijimi after having followed our heroes there. As Kylo makes his way down to the planet, Zorri helps the Resistance escape by employing the use of something described to me as a “First Order passage device”, something that transmits a signal recognized as friendly to the First Order allowing the ship to pass uninterrupted. As our heroes make their escape, we see that Palpatine’s orders to Hux and Pryde are being carried out as children are being rounded up by soldiers of the First Order.

[First Order Star Destroyer Above Kijimi]

As the heroes escape on Ochee’s ship, the group makes the decision to use the passage device to board the Star Destroyer and recapture the Falcon. The device works as advertised and their ship lands without question. On board the Star Destroyer, the droids log on to the ship’s computer network to locate the Falcon, but in the process they discover that Chewbacca is still alive! He was on a different prisoner transport ship the entire time. The team hatches a plan for a rescue mission but Rey splits off, feeling as if something is calling to her. Meanwhile, the others find Chewie, but their rescue attempt fails and they are all taken captive. The calling Rey feels is caused by the dagger which draws her to it in Kylo’s living quarters.

[Kijimi]

Back on the surface of the planet and having grown tired of a fruitless search for Rey, Kylo initiates another Force bond with her. He discovers that she is on his Star Destroyer and a lightsaber duel breaks out between the two of them across two different locations. Kylo on the surface of Kijimi and Rey aboard the Star Destroyer. During this encounter, Kylo reveals that there is more to the story behind Rey and her parents. Rey is the granddaughter of Emperor Palpatine. He tells her that they are meant to join together on the dark side and that it’s all part of the Emperor’s plan. It’s clear that by this point in the story, Kylo is fully committed to what the Emperor’s mission for him. Once Rey and Kylo’s Force bond duel ends, Kylo makes his way back to his ship and Rey grabs the dagger and Chewbacca’s bandolier and bolts. Rey bumps into a fresh minded C-3PO along the way, hands him Chewbacca’s effects and the dagger and tells him to make a run for it while she stalls Kylo. When it appears that all is lost for our heroes that have been captured by the First Order, General Hux arrives and surprisingly not only allows them to escape, but points them in the direction of the Falcon. Hux was the mole within the First Order that Finn and Poe had received information from. Rey and the other heroes make a break for the Falcon and escape. After they leave, Kylo kills Hux for treason against the First Order. From this point forward, General Pryde is the sole commander of the First Order military. The Emperor contacts Pryde and demands that he use one of the specially equipped Star Destroyers to destroy Kijimi as an act of loyalty and Pryde complies.

[Endor]

The information gleaned from C-3PO’s translation of the dagger’s writing leads the location of a second wayfinder device which turns out to be aboard the wreckage of the second Death Star on the forest moon of Endor. Along their way to the wreckage, the crew comes in contact with a person named Jannah. It is revealed that she was press ganged into First Order service as a child, but eventually escaped and found her way to Endor where she has been living for some time. At this time it is revealed that she is the child that Lando lost to the First Order all those years ago. Jannah provides Rey with transportation to get to the Death Star wreckage

Rey makes her way to the Death Star wreckage and begins climbing her way through it’s twisted remains. One of my sources told me that this scene feels very reminiscent of the activities we see Rey doing when we are first introduced to her in TFA. She eventually reaches the Emperor’s throne room and discovers a chamber connecting to that room that contains the second wayfinder. Rey approaches the object and picks it up which induces visions of a possible future for herself. In this vision we see a version of Rey that has been enveloped by the dark side as seen in the D23 footage. My sources have also told me that the voice of Palpatine may be heard during this scene. The vision shocks Rey and she stumbles back into the throne room where Kylo Ren is waiting for her. Kylo takes possession of the Emperor’s wayfinder, destroys it and indicates to Rey that the only way to get another wayfinder is to go through him and take Vader’s. A lightsaber battle ensues, beginning in the throne room and eventually transitioning to exterior wreckage among the crashing waves.

[The Resistance’s Jungle Base]

Off in another part of the galaxy while Kylo and Rey clash sabers, a bright light in the universe begins to fade. Leia is dying. Before her death, we hear the voice of a familiar hero come to bid her farewell and pass on one last bit of knowledge…[Endor]

As their battle rages on, both Kylo and Rey sense the death or their respective mother and mentor. They both react, but Rey recovers from the shock sooner and leverages the moment to take Kylo’s weapon from him and stab him through the chest with it. In the aftermath of their concluded duel, Rey declares to Kylo that she will never be like him and fall to the dark side. She exercises her newfound healing ability to save Kylo from death, steals his ship along with Vader’s wayfinder device aboard it and takes off, leaving her enemy behind.

After Rey leaves the forest moon, the remainder of the Resistance crew boards the Falcon, along with their newfound ally Jannah, having spent the duration of Rey and Kylo’s fight repairing the ship, and return to the hidden base on the jungle planet.

Broken and defeated, Kylo Ren remains on the wreckage of the second Death Star when he is visited by a vision of his father. Han speaks to his son, telling him that it’s never too late to return to return to the light and make the right choice. This conversation has a profound effect on Kylo and in a symbolic gesture, he discards his lightsaber and walks away from darkness and the identity of Kylo Ren.

ACT III

ACT III

[Ahch-To]

Following her experience on the Death Star, Rey returns to the island on Ahch-to. Throughout the course of the film she has given in to her aggression, nearly killed her friend by unleashing a stream of lightning on a ship, learned that she is the descendant of the Sith Lord who reduced the Jedi to numbers that they have yet to recover from even half a century later, saw a vision of herself as a servant of darkness and stabbed her enemy through the chest in anger. Her most recent encounter with Kylo was the last straw and Rey has now made the decision to follow the example set by Luke and exile herself on the island where the Jedi began. Rey scuttles the ship she stole from Kylo and throws the repaired lightsaber originally constructed by Anakin Skywalker in after it. A ghostly hand snatches the lightsaber out of thin air as it’s being thrown. It’s Luke Skywalker. Luke’s conversation with Rey is said to be encouraging yet realistically grim in tone. Luke knows first hand what it’s like to face Palpatine and that it’s not an easy task. Rey must confront Palpatine in the same way that Luke once had to confront Vader. Luke encourages Rey by telling her of the faith Leia had in her. She saw the potential within her and hoped that Rey would be able to restore balance to the Force once more just as Anakin once did. Rey supposedly asks to speak to Leia at one point, but Luke responds by telling her that Leia has not yet completed her training and he can not yet feel her distinctive consciousness within the Force. By the end of their conversation, Rey is reenergized for the seemingly insurmountable task that lies ahead of her and agrees to leave the island. Having destroyed the ship she used to come to Ahch-to, Luke raises his own X-wing (previously seen submerged in the coves of the island) to allow Rey to face Palpatine. In addition to the starfighter, Luke gifts Rey with a lightsaber that once belonged to Leia. He tells her how Leia left her saber with Luke when she stopped training and Luke kept it on him. He then points Rey to where he kept it safe in his hut. Rey boards the X-wing, armed with the coordinates for Palpatine’s location obtained from Vader’s wayfinder and leaves the planet.

[The Resistance’s Jungle Base]

After returning to the jungle base, several things happen. After seeing the sacrifice made by 3PO, R2 reveals that he has a backup of C-3PO’s memories in his archives and is able to restore the droid to a mostly whole state. My sources believe this backup memory to have been created sometime around the time of The Force Awakens. It’s an older C-3PO, but it’s better than no 3PO at all. Lando reenters the story, having changed his mind, coming to the Jungle Base and wanting to help however he can. It is at this time that Rey begins transmitting coordinates into the Unknown Regions obtained from the wayfinder to the Resistance. The Resistance mobilizes, readying themselves for the impending conflict.

[The Unknown Regions- Exogol]

Rey follows the coordinates found in the wayfinder to the same spot Kylo did earlier in the film. Rey lands outside the giant cube floating above the ground and makes her way through the same underground passages. The cube, composed of black rock, floats several meters above the ground and is so massive that one corner can not be seen in frame when the camera is at another. As Rey travels down into the depths of the planet, giant Sith statues can be seen. Where Rey and Kylo’s experiences begin to differ come in with where Rey discovers Palpatine. Palpatine is not in the same chamber that Kylo discovered him in, but in a huge arena, surrounded by Sith loyalists in dark cloaks in the grandstands. Palpatine is being supported by some kind of mechanical arm, possibly connecting him to life support machinery. Rey begins to confront Palpatine. During this conversation Sideous reportedly confirms Rey’s lineage and goads her on to take up a lightsaber and strike him down (very much like how he encouraged Luke to do the same thing 30 years prior), telling her that only in killing him will she gain the power needed to save her friends. Palpatine also apparently makes statements alluding to the belief that Vader could not betray Luke due to their familial bond and that same kind of bond would ultimately cause Rey to do what the Emperor wishes. During his taunts, the sickly Sith opens the roof of the stadium chamber revealing that the sky above is filled with Star Destroyers soon to be embroiled in conflict with the approaching Resistance. As the battle between the First Order/Empire and the Resistance begins to rage in the skies above them, Rey gives into the Emperor’s commands and decides to strike him down.

Through means that are still a bit foggy to me, Ben Solo was able to leave the wreckage of the Death Star and his former persona behind and travel to Exogol with the purpose of joining Rey to help her face down Sidious. Before leaving the Death Star wreckage, Ben abandoned Kylo’s lightsaber so now he’s walking into a warzone with no weapon. When he arrives on the planet, he encounters the Knights of Ren who are guarding the entrance to the arena where Rey and Sidious are. Ben reportedly dispatches each of them using only the Force. After doing this he enters the arena as Rey is about strike the Emperor using Leia’s blade. Ben grabs Anakin’s lightsaber and warns Rey to reconsider what she is about to do, to not kill the Emperor in anger. Seeing Ben arrive pleases Sideous. He then uses his power to bond them together and begins to syphon power from that bond and direct it into himself. As the power flows into him, the once silky and decrepit Palpatine stands tall and strong once again, restoring himself to a much younger, healthier state.

[The Skies over Exogol]

While all this action is happening on the ground, much more explosive events are happening in the sky. The Resistance and the First Order are locked in battle. The details I have on what happens during this branch of the plot are a bit sparse at the moment, but here’s what I have been told. The Resistance arrives and they are confronted with hundreds of Palpatine’s Sith Star Destroyers. Their goal is to take out the flagship of the destroyers, where General Pryde is located. Taking out the flagship will supposedly sever communications with the rest of the fleet and prevent them from being able to navigate the perils of the Unknown Regions. At one point during the battle Finn and Jannah (joined by others, but exactly who is not clear to me right now) land on Pryde’s flagship to destroy it. They recognize this as essentially a suicide mission but Finn and Jannah in particular see the price they may have to pay as wort it to prevent more children from being abducted like they once were. One of my sources described it to me like a D-Day type mission for the Resistence where they attempt to land on to a moving Star Destroyer amidst the battle scene.

Having returned to full strength, Palpatine then shoots lightning into Ben, forcing him to fall into a bottomless abyss, never to be seen again. Sideous then shoots lightning into the sky at Resistance ships. He reportedly continues to make statements about how Rey will join him. In defiance of this, Rey grabs both Anakin’s and Leia’s lightsabers and Palpatine turns his wrath on her. It’s lightsaber vs. lightning at this point and when it seems like all hope is lost for Rey, the spectors of Luke and Leia come to her aid. They jointly work toward overpowering the Emperor, deflecting his lightning back toward himself, killing him and unleashing an explosion powerful enough to make the arena start to crumble around them. Darth Sideous, the last of the Sith Lords, is finally dead. At this same time Finn and Jannah complete their mission and succeed in destroying Pryde’s flagship. The two are prepared to go down with the ship, but are rescued at the last second by the Falcon. Rey escapes the crumbling arena.

[The Resistance’s Jungle Base]

Having won the day, the survivors of the battle regroup at the jungle base and celebrate. What follows is apparently celebration across the galaxy, once again mirroring what is seen at the end of Return of the Jedi.

[Tatooine]

For the end of the film, the heroes then travel to where everything began. The desolate, sandswept planet of Tatooine. Between defeating Sidious and this moment, Rey has disassembled Anakin and Leia’s lightsabers and used their components to construct one of her own that I’m told contains a golden/yellow blade. Rey buries the leftover pieces beneath the Tatooine sands at the site of the Lars homestead. As Rey turns to join Finn, Poe, Jannah, Chewie, R2, 3PO, BB-8 and D-0, a stranger calls out to her. The stranger apparently speaks of how nobody has been seen around this land for a very long time and asks Rey for her name. This is the second time in the film that this question has been posed to her, but unlike her response on Pasaana, Rey has decided who she is. She gives the name Rey Skywalker to the stranger, adopting the name of her masters and revealing the primary meaning of the title of the film. As Rey begins to rejoin her friends, she catches a glimpse of some familiar glowing figures, watching over her. The assembly of heroes look off into the distance at the horizon of the desert planet and watch twin suns set on a universe filled with hope.

The End.

So there you have it. As a reminder, be on the lookout for a reshoot changes and corrections post in the not too distant future.

Rey Mighty Mends Luke’s Lightsaber

There isn’t enough Mighty Mend in the galaxy to fix this trilogy.

Today we get to see the repaired lightsaber courtesy of Michell Buchman and SlashFilm.

Experience as a scrapper gave Rey expertise in metalurgy.

And as readers may already know, Kylo is using the spin-off product Mighty Putty to fix his helmet.

Mighty Putty comes in red.

I suspect there’s going to be a lot of repair work in Episode IX.  Next repair job; the Millenium Falcon:

New York Times Propaganda Outlet Publishes Silly Star Wars Themed Trump Video

Times 1

These are the people who subscribe to an ideology that stumbled out of the LSD-laden piss holes of Woodstock back in the late 1960s, and they’re lecturing about “reality?”  Hilarious!

NYtimes1

Workers at The NY Times are political activists rather than journalists.

What on Earth would the NY Times know about moral norms, given the fact that their activists represent abnormal morals and societal degradation?  So much so, that they’re clueless to the fact that America was never founded as a democracy, making the phrase “American democracy” an oxymoron.

Times 2

That air-head has been announcing an official impeachment inquiry repeatedly since Trump was the President-elect.  What’s new?

Times 3

Is it a Republic or a Democracy?  Maybe the high school students at the Times should make up their minds.

Times 4

And he keeps UFO wreckage from Roswell in an underground facility beneath Trump Tower.

Times 5.PNG

An accusation that idiot activists who don’t care about Clinton’s multiple trips to Pedophile Island like to parrot often.

Times 6

An accusation with exactly zero evidence.  Meanwhile, the idiot activists at the Times ignore the actual evidence of Hillary doing these things instead.

Times 7.PNG

It’s almost as though Joseph Stalin is the editorial chief over at the Times.  Because most of the actual violence we’ve seen come from uneducated fringe leftists who are notoriously incapable of controlling their own physical behavior whenever they hear or read words that they don’t like.

Times 8

Yes.  The point is that SJW activists who like to laundry list their uneducated political gripes should never be taken seriously or respected.

Times 9

He encourages everyone to stay at his hotels.  Why shouldn’t he?  And what business is it of yours what he does with his assets?  Could you idiot communists maybe just keep your ignorant traps shut?  It would be so helpful for everyone including yourselves if you did.

Times10

He inflated Happy Birthday balloons without a proper license and left peanut shells on a restaurant floor.

Times11

Wait a minute.  Don’t SJWs always claim that law enforcement agents regularly fabricate evidence?  They sure do.  But only when it facilitates their deeply moronic racial division narratives.

Times12

You know, all it would take is a 10 second Google search for you idiot activists to correct your ignorance.

And he doesn’t like janitors or skydivers either.

Times13

And he lied about his Aunt Martha’s sweater.  He does NOT think it looks nice on her.

Times14

So what?

Times15

And yet you idiots give Roman Polanski a standing ovation year after year.

President Obama may have been born in America.  But he most certainly is not an American any more than any of you idiot activists running the Times are.
