The Fallout of The Rise of Skywalker

Two weeks after THE RISE OF SKYWALKER debut, we begin a deep exploration into the themes, character development, and impact of Episode IX on the whole Saga. This time, with no special guests or distractions, we're able to have a full discussion about what TROS means to us and how it ties up the Skywalker story. Where does it enhance previous episodes in this trilogy? How does it reinforce messages from prior films? Does it contradict any of the previous mythology? We consider our reactions and look at other responses from across the internet. And, we listen to that mysterious transmission from The Emperor in Fortnite, along with comments from J.J. Abrams and more theater audio from when we saw the movie on opening night.
