10How Did ‘DJ’ Know The Resistance’s Escape Plan?

Feature Detail

Benicio Del Toro’s ‘DJ’ didn’t take long to live up to his reputation as a “shady character” with “unclear allegiances.” After he helps Finn and Rose infiltrate Supreme Leader Snoke’s Mega Star Destroyer (and they’re inevitably captured), we learn that ‘DJ’ had actually betrayed the duo because the First Order was ultimately the higher bidder. However, we then learn that he also told the First Order about the Resistance’s plan to abandon their cruiser using escape pods to retreat to Crait, which begs the question: How did ‘DJ’ know the Resistance was fleeing? The film doesn’t appear to answer this question, and while it’s a relatively small nit to pick, it’s still an element of the subplot that’s conspicuous by its absence.
