I don’t have a lot to say today! But I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
Since you all care so much, I’m going to give you the Christmas Present of Mike and my fleshed out Star Wars Theories.OK, so we’re still not sure if Rey is a Skywalker, although I am inclined to believe that she is.
My theory is that she’s Luke’s daughter, and that she was assigned to Ben Solo (Kylo Ren) as a Padawan. Luke knew that Rey was very powerful, and that Ben was close to the darkside, he believed that training her would help balance his nephew.
Once he was tempted by Snoke, Ben had to prove his devotion to his new path. He was instructed to kill his cousin and apprentice as well as his old master. He failed to kill Luke and could not bring himself to kill Rey, thus he abandoned her on Jakku. The girl was presumed dead and this betrayal is what finally broke Luke.
Leia recognized Rey when she finally met her after the destruction of Starkiller Base and Han’s death.
His failure to kill Rey and guilt over abandoning her are what’s “tearing him apart.”
Also, Kylo Ren is terrible at family history.
Mike’s theory is that Rey isn’t a Skywalker at all, but is still from the same bloodline as Luke and Leia.
Stay with me.
Padme had family. There’s a deleted scene from Episode II where she and Anakin eat dinner with her parents and sister. Rey is Padme’s grand niece. Luke hid her on Jakku…OK we’re still trying to figure out why, but that’s the thought.
We’re both also open to the idea that she’s Obi-Wan’s granddaughter too. As we do have 17 unaccounted years for him on Tatooine and protecting his descendants would probably be high on Luke’s list of priorities.
Mike also twisted his theory to include that Rey might be both Padme’s grand neice and Obi-Wan’s Grand daughter, what with the 17 unaccounted years and all.
I think that one’s a bit of a stretch though…
