Within Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Rey (Daisy Ridley) uses a brand-new pressure power in Star Wars canon called Force recovery, a long-forgotten power in which a Jedi can make use of the Force to recover an additional by moving several of their life power over to the injured. While Force recovery is primarily utilized by Rey throughout The Rise of Skywalker, to boost both a sandworm in the world of Pasadena as well as Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) after their battle on Kef Bir, Kylo Ren himself additionally utilizes this power to bring Rey back to life throughout the Battle of Exegol – yet just how did Kylo Ren discover this power?
The Force power greatly included within The Rise of Skywalker was at first debatable since it presented disparities right into past Star Wars adjustments. Rey, an amateur Jedi Knight, had the ability to Force recover when various other high-level Jedi did not recognize this power, consisting of Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), that'dwho'dwho would certainly been looking for this precise kind of competence to conserve his other half Padmé from passing away throughout giving birth in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The Rise of Skywalker novelization represent this variance by clarifying that Rey uncovered Force recover throughout her research studies of old Jedi messages, the expertise that was shed to the flow of time. Unlike Rey, Kylo Ren has actually not carried out previous study in Force recovery yet is still able to recover Rey after she'sshe'sshe's eliminated by Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid). While it'rest' rest's never ever straight resolved within The Rise of Skywalker, the secret behind Kylo Ren'sRen'sRen's freshly gotten ability can be because of the dyadic Force bond in between him as well as Rey.
Within Star Wars canon, a Force Dyad is when 2 force-sensitive people develop such a solid Force bond that they are one within the Force regardless of being 2 various entities. Because their relationship is so effective, they are both literally as well as psychologically woven throughout area as well as time. As early as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren detects his Force bond with Rey when he telepathically attacks her mind as well as states, “Don’t be afraid. I feel it too.” Their dyadic connection is taken a look at also additionally in Star Wars: The Last Jedi when both Rey as well as Kylo Ren can see as well as talk to one another despite being light-years apart, as well as experience an increase in power when they fight together against the Elite Praetorian Guards at the end of The Last Jedi.
Since their Force Dyad connection links both of their minds, it's possible that Kylo Ren was able to access Rey's knowledge of Force healing. While Kylo never read the Jedi texts personally, it's likely their mental link through the Force bestowed Rey's knowledge upon him. Not only does their Force Dyad bond connect Kylo Ren as well as Rey mentally, but it also allows them to grow stronger with the Force the more they are together. With this in mind, when Rey heals Kylo Ren using the Force on Kef Bir, Ren's simple act in Rey's presence as she is Force healing may have allowed him to acquire the same ability.
Kylo Ren's Force healing may also be due to another theory that correlates with experience. The only other Force-sensitive beings who have Force healed within Star Wars canon is The Child, better known as “Baby Yoda,” from Disney +'s The Mandalorian, in which The Child heals. Greef Carga within the episode “Chapter 7: The Reckoning.” Since Baby Yoda has the appearance and mentality of an infant regardless of being 50 years old, he hasn't studied the Jedi texts Rey read herself and almost seems to force heal innately. When Rey treats Kylo, not only does his lightsaber wound heals, but the scar on his face and his psychological damage that caused his inner struggle between the light and dark side of the Force appears to be treated as well, which was in large part helped by Leia sacrificing herself for Kylo.
With this in mind, Kylo Ren may have acquired the ability to Force heal similarly to Baby Yoda, since both of their brains are unpolluted by trauma and experience at the point in time when they Force treat. Since meditation is the key to force recovery, the clarity of mind as well as self which Kylo Ren attains by the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker enables him to Force recover his Force Dyad companion back to life.
