Kylo isn’t being intimate, he’s puzzled by Rey and trying to figure out why she seems familiar.

My Little Jedi: Kinship is Tragic

In the spirit of Halloween, and after considering which Star Wars characters would dress up as what other popular franchise characters, I have decided that the most perfect costume for the notoriously-coiffed Kylo Ren would be one of the irrepressible Pinky Pie.
