The second Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is here, and it's as intense as we expected.

And that closing shot of Rey turning to the dark side, right? Right?

She asks Kylo "to show me my place in all this", and he holds out his hand.

Wrong. The trailer has totally fooled you. That's not what's going to happen.

Follow us, if you will, back into 2015, to a trailer for The Force Awakens where Finn fired up a blue lightsaber and ran into battle with Kylo Ren. John Boyega was going to be our new Jedi! We were so excited.

We were so tricked. And Disney is doing it to us again.

They want us to think they're in the same place, talking to each other. But they're not. Kylo is beneath a sky filled with ashes and trailing fire, flickering light on his face.

Wherever Rey is, the light is steady, the background still. If we had to guess, we would say she is in that old tree of Ahch-To, asking Luke Skywalker to train her.

Giving away a plot twist like Rey and Kylo teaming up is too obvious, too clumsy to be true. It's like the first Rogue One trailer that implied Jyn was some kind of Imperial spy or defector. It's intended to get us talking, but it's also a bluff to mess with our expectations.

Luke says it best in the trailer: "This is not going to go the way you think."

We don't know how The Last Jedi's plot will play out. But we're going to have to agree with Luke on this one.
