It’s at this point, however, that the extent of Rey’s powers becomes evident as, instead of letting her opponent die, she leans in and harnesses the Force to heal him.
It’s not the first time Force Healing has been used in Star Wars canon, and was prefaced by Rey using the power to help an injured serpent earlier in the film, but the move still comes as a shock to fans as Kylo is fully healed before she escapes in his ship.
At the end of The Rise of Skywalker, Force Healing comes into play to allow for one of the biggest twists of the movie.
His near-death serving as the catalyst to bring him back to the light, Ben follows Rey to confront her grandfather, Palpatine.
When the two come together in a bid to defeat the Emperor he uses their dyad to restore himself to full strength before blasting Ben away.
