Descendants of the Chosen One, Rey and Jakku

My thinking this theory has changed a little bit. I now think the goal was and is to bring back Palpatine.

Star Wars Shadow Council

Extract from Robotical712′s Background Theory

One unknown I’ve been grappling with is why Snoke would want Rey taken to Jakku in the first place. It obviously had to do with what the Emperor was so interested in there, but it wasn’t clear beyond that.

Secrets of the Emperor and Snoke

My background theory from before TFA has suddenly become relevant again!

Star Wars Shadow Council

In his quest for domination of the universe itself, the Emperor had many schemes and tools in play. The most visible and prominent was the Death Star. As his rule expanded, resistance inevitably arose which required his attention and delayed him from attaining true power. The Death Star was the answer to these distractions and its completion was to pacify the restive galactic populace so that he might direct his efforts towards more productive ends. It’s destruction was a devastating setback, but it was only one plan among many.

This is part of my full background theory:

  1. The Emperor and His Goals
  2. Secrets of the Emperor and Snoke (Today)
  3. Descendants of the Chosen One and Rey

The Emperor and His Goals

My background theory from before TFA has suddenly become relevant again!

Star Wars Shadow Council

Only the beginning.

Canon has been steadily revealing the Emperor’s goals were far more ambitious than ruling the galaxy and had many hidden projects to achieve them. This gives some context to my discussion of Rey and Jakku.

The Enemies to Lovers Trope vs. Rey and Kylo in the Force Awakens

Tropes serve the function of signaling story elements to the audience and of providing shortcuts to understanding said story. While badly-written tropes can come off as “cliche,” the most common fiction tropes are so popular, and are relied on so heavily, because they have a fundamental logic to them that the creators know most or much of the target audience will grasp instinctively. However, various tropes are similar enough in essential elements that they are easily confused or misidentified (sometimes by design). In such cases, the surrounding context of the story and structure, as well as an understanding of how such tropes work and – significantly – why they work, should be given special consideration. Here we examine how the “enemies to lovers” trope is used in modern popular fiction and compare and contrast it with how Kylo and Rey’s relationship is presented in the Force Awakens.  The comparison will show whether their relationship, as presented in canon, is in agreement with or in violation of the trope.

How Breaking Bad’s ‘The Fly’ Bears Similarities To The Last Jedi

‘The Last Jedi’ is not the first divisive piece of media Rian Johnson has directed. Breaking Bad’s ‘The Fly’ was a bottle episode released in the midst of the third season, bringing a halt to the show’s main plot. Instead, Rian utilizes symbolism and unconventional directing techniques to reflect on Walter White’s state of mind. This heavy use of meta storytelling and symbolism evokes our own theories on how Rian approached The Last Jedi.
