I feel like this isn’t talked about enough and it shows just how powerful Kylo actually is. Like that bowcaster sent people flying, shattered a stormtroopers armour, and when Kylo got hit he just sort of… took it? And stood back up? It must have hurt, he was bleeding out during the fight. It also makes his defeat way more understandable, like it’s shocking to me that he was even able to stand up after getting shot, let alone fight. I’m pretty sure he kept going out of pure rage or fear of failure, or a combination of the two.
I think Chewie might have been deliberately aiming to maim, not kill. He probably grew up with that kid. :(
