When we first meet Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, she is immediately established as the movie’s everywoman — a spunky Resistance underling who believes in fighting for the cause above all else, except for perhaps the occasional fangirl moment when she meets her heroes.
We see that when she first meets Finn (John Boyega) who, admittedly, kind of stumbled into the hero role in The Force Awakens. But we see no such reaction to the dashing, starfighter pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) — maybe because they were in a tense life-or-death situation, or maybe because he was tangentially responsible for her sister Paige Tico’s death. In reality, according to a new Star Wars comic book, it’s because they had already met.
Spoiler warning: This article reveals plot points from Star Wars Forces of Destiny: Rose & Paige.
