Part two of the Skytalkers in-depth breakdown of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here with our character section. First, Charlotte and Caitlin dive into the connections that characters have with each other in the film.

What does their Force bond mean for the saga and the balance of the Force? Next, they dig deep into the Skywalker family and legacy. Is this the end of the Skywalker line? Finally, they talk about Failure and make some character predictions for episode 9.
