She's a good fighter, she's a good mechanic, she can understand droid, she can pilot the Falcon and knows it better than Han for f***'s sake, she can use the force and overcomes Kylo Ren's mind powers for f***'s sake. She's a good shot, Han likes her, Leia likes her, Finn likes her, BB8 likes her, even Kylo f***ing Ren starts to like her and she's trusted with a mission to find Luke after barely getting to know the rebellion or whatever they're called.
Poe needs rescue from the empire or whatever it's called and Finn rescues him. Finn needs rescue from tentacles and Rey rescues him. Rey needs rescue from capture and she rescues herself.
The most I can say is she's momentarily disabled by being thrown at a tree by Kylo Ren only to get back up and beat Kylo Ren in a laser sword battle...
I can't see how she's not a Mary Sue.
On a side note, why does Rey give a s*** about the conflict between the rebellion and the empire? What's her motivation and what's stopping her from just going back to... desert planet... and waiting for her parents like before? She sort of just meanders through the plot if memory serves.Last edited by KLAMarine - on 13 January 2018
