In ROS they specifically say that the "Holdo maneuver" was a one-in-a-million shot and Finn faced exactly the same stakes.

I thought that happened because he turned? I was trying to remember the plot of that movie without having to watch it again but I got stuck there.

Finn was trying to destroy canon and Rose stopped him, foreshadowing ROS's de-canoning of most of the plot of TLJ.

Right, so that's why I characterize it as the directors having an argument. JJ sets up a story based on pure nostalgia; a beat-for-beat remake. The Rian says ackshually the force is an egalitarian...

If JJ thought that, then why the half-assed retcon in 9? It's worth noting that Kylo doesn't actually say Rey's parents were nobody. She says it first. Then he fills in "they sold you for drug...
