Starting to get a little too spoilery in the main thread for my tastes.
the pointlessness of the poe/finn/rose gambit
I loved the gambit -- especially that it didn't work! Rogue One showed how a good plan can succeed, even if everyone involved dies as a result; this showed that a well-planned idea can fail ... and yet isn't necessarily the end. "The greatest teacher, failure is" loomed large in so many scenes, from Poe's costly opening attack on the Dreadnought to Finn's aborted run at the cannon.

The title of this thread implies the other one isn’t full of spoilers. Lock them up.

Another layer to this is how it seems like Johnson just decided to throw away everything from TFA he didn’t like. Snoke. Phasma. Kylo’s mask.
The Snoke/Kylo relationship really puzzles me. How did they even meet? Snoke doesn't seem like a guy who hangs out in the same social circles.
