All the teasing, the memes, the SNL sketch and parody Twitter accounts took their toll on poor Kylo Ren. There is only so much mockery an unhinged young Dark Sider can take.
Supreme Leader Ren will see you now.
Snoke huh? His faith in his apprentice, misplaced may have been. The biggest, baddest guy in the galaxy, worse than Sidious, worse than Vader; his apprentice kills him with a two finger salute, a literal sleight of hand.
He didn’t see it coming, like Han Solo – although surely Han did have a sense of foreboding when he stepped out on that teeny tiny, narrow bridge in The Force Awakens.
I honestly kept expecting Snoke to force-knit himself back together after getting lightsabered through the middle. (Talking about smoking torsos, I can confirm Kylo Ren is shredded. Kylo Ren has an eight-pack.)
I’m a bit hazy straight after my first viewing, and I’m not sure when Kylo made the decision to snuff Snoke. I think it was when he found out that he’d been arranging those Force FaceTimes with Rey, when Kylo thought it was true love.
So far, we seem to have ascertained that Rey is Rey Random of non-famous parentage. Kylo’s a bit of a snot about it, as if it’s good of him to see her as an equal, what with his mom being a princess and all.
I just can’t believe it’s been two years since the last Star Wars. There are many other strands to this really rather long movie, and I’ll probably do a review in a week or so. For now, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!!
