Kylo Ren’s Fate in Episode IX

Image result for kylo ren

Written by robotical712, speaking for myself only.

Kylo Ren is perhaps the franchise’s most divisive character. Some see him as a victim of his identity and the circumstances of his childhood. For those who see him that way, he’s a misguided and a lonely individual who is only missing love and understanding. To others he’s megalomaniacal monster who has refused every chance at redemption and must be put down. Unsurprisingly, speculation and opinions over what his fate will be in IX also vary the most of all of the characters. From an unrepentant death to atonement and forgiveness, little can stoke emotions like the debate over where his character is headed.

– article and video study by HanSpinel

Several commonalities exist in the form of plot lines and visual parallels between The Last Jedi (TLJ) and the Original Trilogy (OT). Here, I explore the similarities among the “Throne Room” scenes of Return of the Jedi and The Last Jedi, most of which play out in a beat-for-beat fashion (video below).

V-day or D-day: What will Episode IX mean for ReyLo?

– Guest Post by kelC3PO

There may be something in the air when it comes to Rey and Kylo Ren… but is it romance, or family ties?

In this post, I draw comparisons between the Luke/Leia and ReyLo “relationships.” A majority of the post focuses on highlighting fan opinions from the late 70’s and early 80’s that are in favor of a Luke/Leia love. I then hypothesize that any ReyLo relationship will end the same way as Luke/Leia… with Rey and Kylo Ren as relatives. A population of fans were upset with this reveal after RotJ, and I suspect ReyLo fans will react similarly should ReySky be revealed in Episode IX.

Hope you like it!

Luke Didn’t Abandon Rey On Jakku (And Here’s Why)

One of the most common objections to Rey being a Skywalker is that it would mean Luke had abandoned her on Jakku, destroying his noble and heroic character. However, this is not the only possible option for the story of Rey’s separation from her father, and there are, in fact, hints within the films that point a different direction.
