    Luke is a pretty stupid Star Wars name. I have no clue what that’s supposed to mean.

    Jokes aside - I have seen commented on many times before how often characters just seem to forget or ignore redshirt characters as soon as they are dead, even if the characters themselves should care a lot - ie Luke only having a brief look of sadness and then never mentioning his lifelong best friend Biggs or the aunt and uncle who raised him ever again.

    So here we have people actually acting like human beings over the death of their friend* and people are baffled over it because the viewers aren't familiar with the character who died? I thought that was what was wanted. In any case, I thought it did a good job of reinforcing the incredible risks that this group is taking to aide Obi-Wan and Leia.

    *Especially since, as pointed out in this episode repeatedly, these guys aren't soldiers and haven't had any training to accept the death of friends as an inevitability in their line of work.

    You're absolutely right, of course--I suppose Wade is best comparable to Dack. Still funny, though.

    You know, I truly felt the weight of Wade's death. And the reason all lies in the reactions of those on the Path who clearly knew him well. It may be minor in the overall arc of the story, but it's still impactful to them. That's where the emotional burden lies.

    I think there's a direct correlation between the two to be honest. I'm probably one of the biggest Wade fans there are in terms of how much I cared about him at the point when he met his untimely demise, but even I had a hard time not laughing at how somber and serious it was presented as. And like you said it's not because that reaction doesn't make perfect sense from an in-universe perspective, so if I trace back those feelings of absurdity to their origin I think it's because Wade's death was given more narrative gravitas than even Han Solo* and Luke Skywalker received in the ST, let alone the Biggs's of the universe.

    *I'm not talking about the immediate reaction from characters that witnessed it happen. I'm talking about Luke finding out in TLJ and just the general lack impact on the rest of the trilogy even though we spend a lot of time with characters that should care.

    I think the next SE of ANH should feature all fighter pilots screaming “FOR WADE!!!” as they engage the Death Star.

    What's pretty mind blowing to me is that Wade spelled backwards is Edaw.

    Also, an anagram of Wade is Adew.

    Adew Wade.

    Adieu Wade.

    Bye Wade. We love you.
