Daisy Ridley: Rey
Luke Skywalker : [Rey throws away her lightsaber into the flaming wreckage of Kylo's ship, but a hand reaches out and grabs it. It turns out to be Luke Skywalker as a Force Ghost, who steps casually forward] A Jedi's weapon deserves more respect.
Rey : [surprised] Master Skywalker!
Luke Skywalker : What are you doing?
Rey : I saw myself on the dark throne. I won't let it happen. I'm never leaving this place. I'm doing what you did.
Luke Skywalker : I was wrong. It was fear that kept me here. What are you most afraid of?
Rey : [after a long pause] Myself.
Luke Skywalker : Because, you're a Palpatine? Leia knew it, too.
Rey : She didn't tell me.
[Luke Skywalker sits beside Rey]
Rey : She still trained me.
Luke Skywalker : Because she saw your spirit. Your heart. Rey, some things are stronger than blood. Confronting fear is the destiny of a Jedi. Your destiny. If you don't face Palpatine, it will mean the end of the Jedi, and the war will be lost.
Poe Dameron : There's writing on it.
C-3PO : Perhaps I can translate. Oh! The location of the wayfinder has been inscribed upon this dagger. It's the clue that Master Luke was looking for.
Poe Dameron : And?
Rey : Where's the wayfinder?
C-3PO : I am afraid I cannot tell you.
Poe Dameron : 20.3 fazillion languages and you can't read that?
C-3PO : Oh, I have read it, sir. I know exactly where the wayfinder is. Unfortunately, it is written in the runic language of the Sith.
Rey : So what?
C-3PO : My programming forbids me from translating it.
Poe Dameron : So you're telling us the one time we need you to talk, you can't?
C-3PO : Irony, sir. I am mechanically incapable of speaking translations from Sith. I believe the rule was passed by the Senate of the Old Republic...
C-3PO : Oh, my. A hex charm.
Poe Dameron : A what?
C-3PO : A common emblem of Sith loyalists.
Rey : Sith.
Finn : This was Ochi's?
Poe Dameron : Luke sensed it. Ochi never left this place.
Finn : And he ended up down here.
Poe Dameron : He was headed for his ship. Same thing happened to us, happened to him.
Finn : So how did Ochi get out?
Rey : He didn't.
Rey : I wanted to take your hand, Ben's hand.
Rey : Be with me.
Rey : I see through the cracks in your mask. You're haunted.
Rey : I did want to take your hand, Ben's hand.
Luke Skywalker : There's something my sister would want you to have.
Rey : Leia's saber.
Luke Skywalker : It was the last night of her training. Leia told me that she had sensed the death of her son at the end of her Jedi path. She surrendered her saber to me and said that one day, it would be picked up again by someone who would finish her journey. A thousand generations live in you now. But this is your fight.
[Rey encounters a Dark Side phantom of herself who is wielding red, two-ended lightsaber]
Rey : [as the Dark Side phantom] Don't be afraid of who you are.
Poe Dameron : Really could've used your help out there.
Rey : How'd it go?
Poe Dameron : Really bad actually. Really bad.
Rey : Han's ship?
Poe Dameron : What did you do to the droid?
Rey : What did you do to the Falcon?
Poe Dameron : The Falcon is in a lot better shape than he is.
Rey : BB-8 is not on fire.
Poe Dameron : What's left of him isn't on fire.
Rey : Tell me what happened.
Poe Dameron : You tell me first.
Rey : You know what you are?
Poe Dameron : What?
Rey : You're difficult, really difficult, you're a difficult man.
Kylo Ren : [holding the Sith wayfinder] Look at yourself. You wanted to prove to my mother that you were a Jedi, but you've proven something else. You can't go back to her now, like I can't.
Rey : Give it to me.
Kylo Ren : The Dark Side is in our nature. Surrender to it.
Rey : Give it... to me.
Kylo Ren : The only way you're getting to Exegol... is with me.
[Kylo destroys the wayfinder]
Rey : No!
Rey : Ben...
Rey : Why did the Emperor come for me? Why did he want to kill a child? Tell me.
Kylo Ren : Because he saw what you would become. You don't just have power. You have his power. You're his granddaughter. You are a Palpatine. My mother was the daughter of Vader. Your father was the son of the Emperor. What Palpatine doesn't know is we're a dyad in the Force, Rey. Two that are one. We'll kill him together and take the throne. You know what you need to do. You know.
Rey : I do.
Kylo Ren : [through the Force] Palpatine wants you dead.
Rey : Serving another master?
Kylo Ren : No. I have other plans.
Kylo Ren : I offered you my hand once. You wanted to take it. Why didn't you?
Rey : You could've killed me. Why didn't you?
Kylo Ren : You can't hide, Rey. Not from me.
Rey : I see through the cracks in your mask. You're haunted. You can't stop seeing what you did to your father.
Kylo Ren : Do you still count the days since your parents left? Such pain in you. Such anger. I don't wanna have to kill you. I'm going to find you and I'm going to turn you to the Dark Side. When I offer you my hand again... you'll take it.
Rey : We'll see.
Poe Dameron : We're trying to find Babu Frik.
Zorii Bliss : Babu? Babu only works for the crew. That's not you anymore.
Rey : What crew?
Zorii Bliss : Oh, funny he never mentioned it. Your friend's old job was running spice.
Finn : You were a spice runner?
Poe Dameron : You were a stormtrooper?
Rey : Were you a spice runner?
Poe Dameron : Were you a scavenger? We could do this all night.
Zorii Bliss : [hoists her weapon higher] You don't have all night.
Rey : I lost control.
Finn : It wasn't your fault.
Rey : It was.
Finn : No. It was Ren. He made you do it.
Rey : Chewie's gone. That power came from me. Finn, there are things you don't know.
Finn : Then tell me.
Rey : I, uh, had a vision. Of the Sith throne. And who was on it.
Finn : Ren?
Rey : [shaking voice] And me.
Poe Dameron : Babu, can you make him translate it?
Zorii Bliss : [interpreting] Yes. But it will cause a complete...
C-3PO : A complete memory wipe.
Poe Dameron : Wait, wait, wait. We make him translate it, he won't remember... anything?
Babu Frik : [in English] Droid, memory go blank.
C-3PO : Oh!
Babu Frik : Blank, blank.
C-3PO : There must be some other way.
Finn : Doesn't R2 back up your memory?
C-3PO : Oh, please. R2's storage units are famously unreliable.
Rey : You know the odds better than any of us. Do we have a choice?
Rey : You were right before. I'm gonna pick up Luke's search for Exegol. I'm gonna start where his trail went cold. The Forbidden Desert of Pasaaana.
Poe Dameron : Yeah, I know. We're going with you.
[heading into the Falcon]
Poe Dameron : Chewie, you get that compressor fixed?
Rey : I need to go alone.
Finn : Yeah. Alone with friends.
Rey : It's too dangerous, Finn.
Finn : We go together.
C-3PO : [Chewie howls and BB-8 chirps] I wholeheartedly agree.
Rey : I know to get to Exegol.
Leia Organa : Tell me.
Rey : Luke searched for it. For a long time. He nearly found it. There are ciphers here I can't read. But he said to get there, you need one of these. A Sith wayfinder. They're compasses that lead the way to Exegol. To stop what we both know is coming... I need to finish what Luke started. Find Exegol. Find the Emperor.
Leia Organa : No.
Rey : I don't want to go without your blessing, but I will. I will. It's what you would do.
Lando Calrissian : Only two were made.
Rey : A Sith wayfinder. Luke Skywalker came here to find one.
Lando Calrissian : I know. I was with him. Luke and I were tailing an old Jedi hunter.
[tapping his wristband, showing them a holographic profile]
Lando Calrissian : Ochi of Bestoon. He was carrying a clue that could lead to a wayfinder. We followed his ship halfway across the galaxy here. And when we got to his ship, it was abandoned. No clue, no wayfinder.
Rey : Is Ochi's ship still here?
Lando Calrissian : It's out in the desert where he left it.
Rey : We need to get to that ship. Search it again.
Zorii Bliss : Heard you were spotted at Monk's Gate. Thought "he's not stupid enough to come back here."
Poe Dameron : Oh, you'd be surprised.
Rey : Who's this?
Finn : What's going on?
Poe Dameron : Guys, this is Zorii. Zorii, this is Rey and Finn.
Zorii Bliss : I could pull this trigger right now.
Poe Dameron : I've seen you do worse.
Zorii Bliss : For a lot less.
Poe Dameron : Can we just, uh... talk about this?
Zorii Bliss : I wanna see your brains in the snow.
Poe Dameron : So you're still mad?
Rey : So, what was it?
Finn : What?
Rey : What you were gonna tell me.
Finn : When?
Rey : When you were sinking into the sand, you said "I never told you..."
Finn : I'll tell you later.
Poe Dameron : You mean when Poe's not here?
Finn : Yeah. Mm-hmm.
Poe Dameron : We're gonna die in sand burrows and we're all keeping secrets?
Finn : I'll tell you when you tell us about all that shifty stuff you do.
Kylo Ren : [sharing a Force vision] Tell me where you are. You don't know the whole story. It was Palpatine who had your parents taken. He was looking for you. But they wouldn't say where you were. So he gave the order.
Rey's Mother : [flashback] She isn't on Jakku. She's gone.
[Rey's father is stabbed in the stomach]
Rey's Mother : No!
Rey : No!
[as they duel, a column is destroyed and Vader's helmet lands at his feet]
Kylo Ren : [realizing where she is] So that's where you are.
Kylo Ren : You remember more than you say. I've been in your head.
Rey : I don't want this!
Kylo Ren : Search your memories.
Rey : No!
[she slashes at him with her lightsaber, which he blocks with his own]
Kylo Ren : Remember them. See them.
[she remembers her parents leaving]
Kylo Ren : They sold you to protect you.
Rey : Stop talking.
Kylo Ren : Rey, I know what happened to them.
Rey : We have to get to that wreck. There's something inside there we need.
Jannah : I can take you there by water.
Finn : Have you seen the water?
Jannah : Not now. Too dangerous. We can go first light tomorrow.
Rey : We can't wait that long. We don't have the time.
Poe Dameron : Or the choice. Let's get that ship fixed.
Zorii Bliss : [giving Poe her First Order medallion after they learn Chewie is alive] Might get you on a capital ship. Go help your friend.
Poe Dameron : Zorii, I don't think I can take this.
Zorii Bliss : I don't care what you think.
Rey : [seeing Ren's TIE land] We have to go. Now.
Poe Dameron : Come with us.
Zorii Bliss : Poe.
Poe Dameron : Can I kiss you?
Rey : He killed my mother. And my father. I'm going to find Palpatine... and destroy him.
Emperor Palpatine : With your hatred, you will take my life. And you will ascend.
Rey : All you want is for me to hate, but I won't. Not even you.
Emperor Palpatine : Weak. Like your parents.
Rey : My parents were strong. They saved me from you.
Emperor Palpatine : Your master, Luke Skywalker, was saved by his father. The only family you have here... is me.
[the ceiling opens, and she sees the raging battle in the atmosphere]
Emperor Palpatine : They don't have long. No one is coming to help them. And you are the one who led them here. Strike me down. Take the throne. Reign over the new Empire, and the fleet will be yours. Only you have the power to save them. Refuse, and your new family... dies.
