I'm reading all the theories about the hacky ending change of RoS and I know on close inspection the editing is totally fucked, but my (apparently) controversial but strongly held opinion.. I was so happy that Ben Solo just died instead of the happy ever after that everyone seems to want. Seriously. I'm extremely bored of characters always being paired off in all media ever. For every new SW movie I've been dreading it happening to Rey. I was enjoying a lot the weight given to her non-romantic strong and loving relationships with those around her. More of that. If anything, I was hoping for the development of a caring sibling-type relationship between Ben and Rey. But also Ben Solo was a jerk. Rey deserves better. And we're swamped with the idea that people (especially women let's be honest) need a [single, male] romantic partner to complete them. Ugh. So yeah. Good.
