Fair point. The hand-wave gets disconnected from its original reaction, but at least it's not (unintentionally) misleading.
TM2YC said:Just say if we are getting too far off topic but... thinking about that moment, the problem might be that that hand wave and flash of sparks are accompanied by a classic Lucasfilm/Ben Burtt sound, similar to the lightsaber impact ones like around the 01.52 mark in this clip when Vader actually does use the force to flip a switch. So people subconsciously think Spalko used "the force".
For future fanedits or tweaks, maybe a SoundFX replacement would help this moment? Plus no sound is in the mix of the plunger being depressed, or a switch being clicked on the explosives, or a count down etc before the explosion, which could also be added in a fanedit. Spalko's back is turned in the shot so her line could be re-timed to a second earlier.
