Why having a Force-bond is a bad idea
With the Force-bonds we know exist, having a Force-bond is not generally a good idea. One-half of each pairing has fallen to the Dark Side. Dooku fell after leaving the Jedi Order before the death of his former Padawan and friend, Qui-Gon Jinn. He later got decapitated by Anakin on Palpatine’s orders.
Maul had been raised as a Dathomirian Nightbrother before being trained as a Sith Assassin under Darth Sidious. For years he served his master with loyalty until he was defeated on Naboo by Obi-Wan in revenge for killing Qui-Gon. He later resurfaced as crazy and with spider legs and a thirst for revenge. Years later, he blinded Kanan Jarrus and taunted Ahsoka before he died by Obi-Wan’s hand.
Then there was Ben who wanted to be like his granddaddy, Darth Vader, but ends up dying a hero, ending the Skywalker bloodline. Though, Rey takes the Skywalker name and renounces her birth family.
Some of the heroes we’ve mentioned ended up either dead or in parts unknown that we have not seen yet. It’s rumoured there might be a Star Wars Rebels sequel show coming, so there’s a chance we might see Ezra and co again. We’ve got our fingers crossed that it’s actually happening.
Do you think Anakin/Vader should have had a Force-bond with Ahsoka or Obi-Wan? Comment Below!
