Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
For a second film in a trilogy, Star Wars: The Last Jedi managed to shut a lot of doors in terms of story. Questions that many thought would be left until Episode IX were either answered or tossed to the side, and villains that many thought would stick around until the very end were ultimately killed off sooner than expected.
Of course, the big player here is Supreme Leaders Snoke. A big deal was mad of him in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and you’d be forgiven in thinking he’d be the ultimate big bad in the trilogy, but writer-director Rian Johnson had different plans for him. But he’s not the only one. While Captain Phasma at least had a one-on-one fight with Finn, her death was also fairly quick an unexpected.
But was this always her fate? Yes and no, as it turns out. In a new deleted scene revealed by The Star Wars Show, we see her scene with Finn turning out a bit differently. In a scene that likely takes place after he knocks her off to her death in the film, she actually climbs back up, along with some of her Stormtrooper cronies. Finn then goes on to reveal to the other Stormtroopers that she gave up Starkiller like nothing back in that first film.
The Stormtroopers begin to doubt Phasma, but she takes them out before they can act, but before she can kill Finn, he cuts her blaster, and when she knocks him over, ready to strike him down with her spear, she shoots her with an over-sized blaster, sending her flying. With this fate in mind, her death could have still been left in the air.
What did you think of this scene compared to the original? I actually think it adds to her character that she’s a bit of a sleezbag, and is acknowledged as such. Let us know your thoughts down below!
