It looks like after being a part of the franchise since the very beginning, we will see the last of everyone’s favorite protocol droid, C-3PO. In the trailers, we saw C-3PO hooking his mind up to something and that he was taking one last look at his friends. That implies that what he is about to do will either wipe his mind again or destroy him completely. I think I know what C-3PO is going to do. Due to the losses the Resistance sustained in The Last Jedi, they are in desperate need of weapons, warships, and soldiers. There is one one army the Resistance could summon that would give them a numerical advantage over the First Order: the Separatist Droid Army. In this image, you can clearly see a dormant B1-series battle droid behind C-3PO. At its height, the Separatist Droid Army numbered in the quintillions before they were collectively deactivated after the Clone Wars. It has been more than half a century since the Clone Wars and it is likely the Droid Army is still dormant and scattered across the galaxy. There have been cases where some battle droids did not deactivate or were reactivated through rogue parties, but the majority of the droid army is still dormant. You might ask how C-3PO could raise the entire droid army by himself. I think the answer is Attack of the Clones, which showed C-3PO switching heads and bodies with a B1-series battle droid. I think something else happened when this happened to C-3PO. I think he also formed some kind of connection with the droid army and now C-3PO might be accessing that connection in order to give the Resistance the army it needs to defeat the First Order once and for all. However, even though the droid army outnumbers the First Order, the First Order’s forces are more advanced and in better condition. The droid army has not fought a single battle in over fifty years, which means most of them must be rusted to a pulp. Still, what they lack in maintenance and advanced weaponry, the droid army makes up for in sheer numbers, which means they could overwhelm the First Order. On the downside, it will be sad to see such a favorite character die after all this time, but I know he will give his life for the good of the galaxy. C-3PO, the Force will be with you. Always.
