Anyone who found the Finn and Rose storyline in The Last Jedi to be too long, thank your lucky stars because it could've been a lot longer. Earlier this week we got a look at one scene deleted from their adventure which featured a cameo from Tom Hardy, and now we're getting a look at another deleted scene with Finn, Rose, DJ, and General Hux aboard The Supremacy.

While the scene begins with DJ's betrayal as seen in the film, it continues on to give Hux and Rose an interaction that nicely shows off some business that's in keeping with both of their characters.  The only thing that really bothers me about this is that Hux would have most certainly pulled out his blaster and shot her on the spot once she bit his finger. SS Officers—on whom the Empire and First Order officers are based—were notorious for killing anyone they pleased whenever they pleased. Am I supposed to believe that Hux is really into the pomp and circumstance of those laser beheadings to a degree that he'd allow one to still take place rather than just dealing with it then and there?

I sure am glad this scene was deleted as it would have been absolutely impossible to defend, from any angle. He wouldn't give her back the necklace, and he sure as hell wouldn't just give a "Well I never!" look to her before storming off. Good on you for cutting this scene Rian Johnson. In all honesty, you probably could've kept this one off the Blu-ray as well.
