Finn got royally messed up by Kylo Ren at the end of The Force Awakens. He starts off The Last Jedi in a medically induced coma, and he may have to be transported off D’Qar like that, since the First Order is probably coming for that Resistance base pretty quickly.
We know he’ll recover – John Boyega has said as much, and he’s also said that Finn won’t be at 100% right away. We do know that he’s going on a mission “behind enemy lines” that, if Rian Johnson’s set photos are any indication, will bring him face to face with Captain Phasma.
Boyega has said that the big decision Finn has to make is whether to keep fighting with the Resistance or flee the First Order. Do you think that’s his biggest challenge? It could well be. I think an even bigger challenge would be for him to have to find out who he is – where he came from, who his parents are, why he got sucked up into the First Order in the first place. But maybe that’s a story that goes beyond the bounds of the Sequel Trilogy…
