I think it's more a manner of speaking than an actual characterization. They are all trained what to say so he really isn't revealing much. I wouldn't read much into it.
@vaderito
That's very true. Daisy (it appears) is coached to say good but mysterious things about Luke and talk about Rey as growing and learning, Boyega is trained to say Finn is running, indecisive and unsure about being a hero, and now Kelly is coached to praise Finn and have fun back-and-forths with Boyega. We've heard similar things for a long time now. So yeah, even though it does sound similar to what Finn experienced in TFA, I don't really think it's cause for disappointment just yet. We have a long time to go and it sounds to me as though what Finn is really dealing with is fear over being an actual Resistance hero, not fear of being found out or fear of the First Order. I've always said that Finn is a bit of a coward. That doesn't mean he isn't brave or won't stand up when it's necessary, just that he has very strong survival instincts that tend to override his better judgment at times.

The chemistry between John and Kelly seems indeed amazing, and Kelly seems amazing too! I had a good feeling about her and her character and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed.
The part with Finn and the Resistance ladies made me laugh because at the beginning, back before they revealed Kelly becoming part of the cast, that's what I thought Finn would have done in the next two movies when it comes to romantic relationships...flirting and acting cool with some Resistance girls and being all "Look at me, I fought against the infamous Kylo Ren and survived!" lol
Given the way John talked about Kelly when they first mentioned her it was kinda obvious what kind of relationship Finn and Rose were going to have....that's quite the contrast with Kylo and Rey. Not a single word before TFA and it took them a year to directly adress their interactions and scenes together, while with Finn and Rose they've been talking about it since the very beginning, before we even knew her name. And even at SWC of course there wasn't a single word on Kylo or how Rey is going to interact with him in TLJ. Wonder why Cool

@Hasi

I love the idea of "big deal" Finn being characterized as a flirt. Let's face it--that's what we saw onscreen with him and Rey in TFA. (e.g. "You got a boyfriend? A cute boyfriend?") I'm really looking forward to seeing how things unfold with him and Rose onscreen.

@FrolickingFizzgig

Maybe Finn and Rose try to run away together (they could fall in love relatively early in the film, who knows (time skip maybe?)) before they end up being pulled back into the conflict?

We know Finn's not a pilot, John said Rose isn't a pilot either, and they're not Force sensitive, so maybe they feel at first that since they have no special skills they can go elope and lead a normal life somewhere safe without the Resistance really missing them?

@AppleCrumble122 It's from an ABC news interview during SWC - John and Kelly's part starts around 06:10.

Given how tight of a lockdown most of TLJ is, is anyone else surprised by the big marketing push that StormRose seems to be getting? I'm wondering if either of the following motives is behind it:

* Introducing audiences to KMT and appropriately set expectations for fans who were expecting FinnRey.
* Providing a bit of a misdirection ("Oh, StormRose is the ST romance), so as to deflect attention away from Reylo, especially if Rey and Kylo are going to be marketed together in any way (e.g. the teaser poster).

@ISeeAnIsland

It seems to me the main reason for that kind of not subtle- at -all promotion is the prominence of Kelly's role as Rose in the future two movies: she's clearly joining the main cast, and becoming one of the heroes.
They were pulling "a trio" thing for the nostalgia sake before TFA. And everyone who paid attention to the movie (at minimum level) could get the fact "the trio" is not at all "the trio" in OT sense.

I agree, as well, for a little bit of "misdirection" in a sense of hiding the existence of a second, hidden romance.

"It's Finn and Rose, they're on a massive adventure. It's a big mission they need to complete. The Resistance is under immense pressure, and it's time for them to get a bit of help. That's where Finn and Rose come in, and they're thrust into a crazy adventure."
