Finn shouldve died between 7 and 8


Just had him not survive his light sabre injuries:

-His character wasn't needed in 8 & 9/no need for Casino World

-Could've gone out heroically at end of VII

-No being sidelined moaning from Boyega (aside him moaning about being killed off I guess)

End scene of Rey meeting Poe:
Rey: where's Finn?
Poe: he didn't make it
Rey: aw.. (looks sad then moves to Leia).. General.. I got these books from Luke.. he's dead as well right?

I guess being sliced through your spine with a light sabre should have caused slightly more permanent injuries.

They should have gone with that, then Finn could have been a wheelchaired hero in the TLJ. That would have been nice piece of inclusiveness for a sorely underrepresented group within the SW universe. He could have been wheeled around by Poe, purposefully written as his gay partner rather than just being alluded to.

Black, gay and disabled? wow.. Rotton Tomatos would've been at least 110%

Boyega sucks as a person, and Finn as a character (was kinda funny in the first one), but off screen deaths never work unless the person has really died. If the character was written off, it just shows in the movie.

Rian could've done it as part of his meta/post modern subversion of expectations thing he had going on ..

We expected Finn to survive because the actor isn't dead.. but guess what ..he didn't

Y'know it just hit me..they killed Luke.. but left Finn alive. who the hell would ever even DREAM of doing that?!
