Episode 57 - Return of the FFAR

We're back! After a hiatus from normal episodes to add two new hosts, release our TFA commentary, and publish our The Empire Strikes Back audio drama, we've finally returned! On this episode, we discuss Star Wars: Bloodline in-depth, focusing on how it connects to The Force Awakens and Episode VIII. Check out the full shownotes below:

  • Get to know our new hosts!
  • Bloodline Discussion (SPOILERS!)
    • Kylo and Luke - what are they up to?
      • When do you think Ben turns, in relation to this?
        • Why can’t Leia get ahold of either of them?
          • How do Snoke and the Knights of Ren factor into this?
        • Does he ever get her message? How big is this in Ben’s decision to turn?
      • Can we finally agree that Ben turning and Rey being put on Jakku were not at the same time and probably not connected?!
      • Would Leia be able to sense Ben falling? And if not, why?
    • The formation of the First Order
      • Vanishing Imperial remnants and people within the Senate looking to defect and praising the Empire.
    • Leia and the Resistance
      • We learn that Leia forms the Resistance not really in response to the First Order, but as a way to get things done with a broken Republic.  
    • Han and Leia
  • We discussed the most under-appreciated Star Wars characters.
  • And much more!
