I re-watched The Last Jedi in its entirety again last week for the first time since before putting the The Last Jedi Case for Rey Skywalker together. The case, combined with other insights and events, made for a very different viewing experience.

From the early days of Sequel Trilogy speculation, a fun – if frustrating – topic of speculation for fans who believe Rey is Luke Skywalker’s daughter has been that of Rey’s mother. In a new series, the Star Wars Shadow Council will put forward the argument we’ve already been given this mysterious woman’s origins and her tremendous impact on Luke.
I’ve had a bit of a paradigm shift in my thinking in the last few days and now think the Sequel Trilogy’s real story and conclusion is quite a bit different than almost everyone has supposed. I’m working on a more extensive explanation, but the above diagram gives an overview of my thinking.

After watching The Last Jedi again after its home release, I’ve realized that the Third Lesson is essentially the theme of the movie as a whole. The lesson involves fighting for the galaxy as a whole, and not making family your bottom-line motivator. It’s a battle between Luke and Kylo Ren to turn Rey to one end or the other, and Rey represents the audience. The Third Lesson was not only taught to Rey, but it was taught to us as the viewers.
Shadow Council Discord user shenanakins brought it to our attention that there is a very faint scream that can be heard during the TFA interrogation scene.

At two points in the movie you can hear screams played in the background.
