Missing a bit of a session can be a little disorienting.
Moreso when the other players try to describe what happened and inevitably get their stories messed up.
Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)
Man, Corey missed a ton since the start of the session. The sun got blown up (finished blowing up?), most of the fighters seem to have been destroyed, and all of the stuff with Han and Kylo happened. Especially the parts where Zeppo lost his name then named himself Han again. And hey! Maybe the GM can salvage some of that aerial battle he'd had planned out now. Not having anything happen with all of that set-up of taking down the shield and the fighters showing up would be a huge disappointment.
And being alone with your thoughts can be good for a time! Having the time to straighten out how you feel about things or events is good, even preferable for sensitive subjects. But if you're not careful, it can be easy to start spiraling downward if they're not productive or if they're even depressive. Doing things with friends is best for distractions, but even just working together with someone else on a task can help pull your mind off of unpleasant thoughts.
BB-8: Hey, everyone! I decided to come after all.
BB-8: I tried to get here as fast as I could so I didn’t miss anything, but the pizza place was a bit slow.
BB-8: Did something happen?
Kylo Ren: Never mind that! How are you?
BB-8: Oh, okay. I know I said I needed some time, but I think being with friends will be better.
BB-8: I’m so sorry, Annie. How are you?
Finn: Good. It’s fine, Corey.
Allan: Great! Han just had the most awesome death!
BB-8: Okaaay. Someone want to tell me what really happened?
