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.

Caitlin and Charlotte deep dive into some specific aspects about Star Wars Rebels’ excellent episode “Twin Suns” (S3 E20) — they discuss their initial impressions of the episode, fan reactions, and then compare it to Hitchcock’s masterpiece “North by Northwest” by exploring the concepts of moral relativism, mistaken identity, and the episode’s visual language. Then, they speculate about how we will view this episode after the upcoming Kenobi series and more.

All this and more on Skytalkers.
