Episode 2154: Hugger-mugger


If you suspect that someone in your adventuring party is up to something (in character), you have a few options:

  1. You can confront them in front of everyone and force the issue into the open.
  2. You can quietly let them know you're on to them and are keeping an eye on them.
  3. You can secretly pretend to be in on it and willing to help.

Any option can be entertaining, so feel free to experiment!

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

....Iiiiiii'm a bit lost for words too. Why would Rey give Finn a hug but not Han? They didn't look that close prior to now, and I'm having trouble making this fit with any of the potential guesses at the movie plot I've had so far. If Finn wasn't a traitor the previous time he saw Rey, why would he wander off with Mr. Shut-up? If he was, why would he be forgiven so quickly here to the point of getting a hug? Is Rey somewhat estranged from her family, so this is like a snub against Han?

In-comic, I'm guessing this is Pete making a play at forcing Finn to be completely on one side or the other. It didn't look like Kylo got anything useful from Rey while she was still in the interrogation room, so this would need to be something made up. And subtle brainwashing seems highly unlikely as well, given that Kylo got violently angry at seeing her escape.


Finn: What happened? Did Kylo Ren hurt you?
Rey: Finn. Did you come to rescue me?
Finn: Uh... yeah.
Rey: Come here!
Rey: I grab Finn in a big hug.
Rey: I whisper in his ear so Zeppo and Chewie can’t hear.
Rey: Your secret’s safe with me. Kylo Ren made me see the light. We’re working together against the Resistance now.
Finn: Uh, we are? I mean...
Finn: That’s good.
GM: Wow. That’s a very in-character roleplaying thing to do, Pete.
Rey: Totally worth it to have Annie lost for words for a second.
