    Never happened. What Rey did do however, was bypass the compressor that Unkar Plutt had installed on the Falcon, which Han had never seen. That was explained in The Force Awakens. You can read about it here, since apparently the dialog that was actually in the film was not clear enough for you [https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Compressor]:

    After he stole the Millennium Falcon from the Irving Boys, Crolute junk boss Unkar Plutt installed a compressor on the ignition line. However, by the time the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca recovered the Falcon, the scavenger Rey bypassed a faulty compressor at the cockpit, ceasing the ship's malfunction.​

    That is completely incorrect and is not what happened in the scene at all. Just an oft repeated incorrect interpretation.

    It’s really like the haters didn’t even watch the movie, just edited out of context clips or simply lack the ability to pay attention to what happened. Because really nothing they complain about is in the film itself, they just insist that it is.

    I felt the same way about the Abrams' Trek films.

    Adorable and utterly wrong based on my posting history. Do you even an actual argument or are you sticking to passive aggressive post editing?

    It isn't incorrect she was very irritating. In my opinion. Just as she was irritating being a better fighter than Ren and how long did it take her to master mind control? Was it one or two seconds?

    Master it? She did it once. Leia shot stormtroopers with her eyes closed once. Is she a master at that?

    It's this absurd hyperbole of Rey's skills that is becoming irritating.

    Let me know when you have a decent argument and not one easily proven wrong by the film itself.

    I’ll be waiting.

    The difference is I am discussing how a fictional character is an irritation. An object or creation within a field of entertainment that puts itself out there for reaction.

    Putting it out for public reaction means you will get a reaction.

    Regardless, this interpretation of Rey's skills is still hyperbolic, regardless of personal emotional reaction.

    Personal opinions about characters are far from objective and basing arguments on things that didn’t even happen aren’t valid.

    There's just a general intolerance here to different opinions. It's like every one must love Rey and not see her as Miss Perfect, yet that is how she is written.

    Claiming people only like the movies for political reasons is pretty intolerant.

    That is not what being presented at all. That is an assumption.

    I've always just assumed that Anakin did more damage than anyone realized when he choked Padme, but the droids somehow missed it, so just they just said she died of a broken heart.

    It’s also noticeably not engaging with anything people are actually saying.


    When our options are ‘female lead dies becauss she literally can’t live without her man’ or ‘female lead is murdered via romantacized domestic abuse,’ we have to pick our poisons apparently.

    But it’s fine, because a bunch of guys who’d never even employ a woman to play the female parts they wrote, wrote the same thing in decades to centuries ago. That means it’s a homage and inspired, and therefore criticism proof.

    Sure people - like Campbell - criticise Classic Literature all the time. But whatever.

    A woman being the lead and as capable as any male lead is terrible and must be stopped. She should die to make it realistic, because no woman can ever be successful and make it through life without serious injury or sudden death.
