Caitlin and Charlotte bring Hammie (@balancedpadawan) on Skytalkers to discuss the Dyad — Rey and Ben Solo. They discuss the origins, the word etymology and origins, “the mythical dyad.” Then, they talk about the dyad’s function specifically in the Star Wars narrative; how it relates to the Chosen One prophecy, how it fits in with the concept of “twos”. Finally, they wildly speculate about the future: Can Ben Solo be brought back? How would we like to see it? What about the World Between Worlds? All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers.
