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.
Legends of Luke Skywalker badly wants you to think two characters are the same, but a careful reader will realize that’s impossible.

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.

In the last full post of the series, we’ll examine the symbolism of The Last Jedi and what it tells us about Rey, Luke and the Skywalker family.
The case for Rey Skywalker can be summed up in a few lines from TLJ:
Luke: You went straight to the dark. […] It offered something you needed. And you didn’t even try to stop yourself.
Luke: […] My nephew with that mighty Skywalker blood. And in my hubris, I thought I could train him, I could pass on my strengths. […]
Rey: […] Kylo failed you. I won’t.
