Episode 2472: You Sly Dog


No one asks for the villain monologue.

Except, you know, of course the heroes are always just asking for it.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

This is going to be good indeed. Cue the flashback panels! Hopefully! Because I'm going to look silly now if we don't get any!

Seriously though, we just had the visions from Rey picking up the sword mentioned in the previous comic. This feels like an ideal time for Sally to monologue and expound on those scenes that haven't come up yet, if they got any movie time at all. Like the rainy scene with the person being cut down, or the little girl yelling about something. Luke and Artoo seems covered, and we've already had Kylo and Rey in the snowy woods; maybe we'll get lucky enough to have something close to the others.

That said, if I am wrong about having the sepia flashback panels, Sally-as-Snoke with the first monologue was very impressive, so I'm sure this will be just as good either way. Even if, or maybe especially if, Sally decides to cut Snoke's monologue short by jumping over to Holdo and crashing the Raddus into the middle of it. Just imagine how Pete would react to having his character development delayed again!


Rey: Why do you say I’m suited to the Dark Side?
Snoke: You know the reasons: Anakin and Padmé. The name you carry defines you, Rey Amidala.
Snoke: A heritage of fear and hatred. Their cruelty runs thick in your blood.
Rey: Luke and Leia don’t have it.
Snoke: Oho, but they do! They just refuse to listen, leaving the causes they fight for weak and hopeless.
Snoke: But you can be so much more. You were made to serve the Dark Side.
Rey: What do you know about my mother?
Snoke: More than you will ever know.
Rey: This is a way to remedy that...
Rey: Damn. Did I just ask for a villain monologue?
Snoke: Oh, this is going to be good.
Rey: From Sally?
