So.... Spoilers ahead. (But who hasn't seen the movie already?)
Han Solo dies.
(Had to get that out of my system.)
Maybe I fooled you with the picture, or maybe I didn't. Either way, this picture,
Is not some amazing Fan Art of Kylo Ren and Rey. This is Bastila Shan and Darth Revan from Knights of the Old Republic. (And several books that are no longer part of the Star Wars universe.) Look similar to two new characters from a certain movie that just came out?
Nah. Not at all am I right?
Now I may be going crazy, but I think, and hope, that the Kylo and Rey stoyline will go a little something like this:
Revan was a Jedi (Kinda like everyones favorite emo Solo son.) who turned to the darkside via several reasons too long and complicated to type out here. But long story short he took the name Revan, and wore a mask to hide his face. And had several followers called Revanites. (Knights of Ren?) Maybe not the best evidence to base a theory on, but just wait.
Bastila Shan was the daughter of Helana Shan and a treasure hunter. And was given to the Jedi Order because her mother believed that their lifestyle of travel and exertions was not suitable for her daughter. Bastila was very gifted in the Force and apt in battle meditation, which strengthened her and her companions in whatever battle they were in. And she often sided with the Jedi council over disputes. Not much to attribute to Rey I'll admit. But then again we know next to nothing about everyones favorite female Jedi.
She was sent to capture Revan and after a series of events I again won't go in to. Revan got mortally wounded and Bastila healed him with the Force. Creating a "Force bond" between them.
The Jedi council erased Revans memory of being evil. And he was trained as a Jedi again. But Bastilas bond with him remained. Now I don't think the new movies will erase Kylo Rens mind, but I DO hope for some sort of Force connection between him and "The girl I've heard so much about."
But then the story gets even more interesting. Bastila gets captured by the Sith and tortured. Succumbing to the Dark Side after a week of said torture. Revan eventually rescuing her and bringing her back to the light.
THIS is what I want in the next two Star Wars episodes. I want Rey captured by Snoke and turned to the darkside. And I want Kylo to save her as she potentially saved him.
Now, Revan and Bastila eventually got married and had a child, and since I, like most people, believe that Rey and Kylo are cousins, that won't happen. (Though if she's a Kenobi...) But this is roughly what i would like to see play out. Not the best of theory's I'll admit, but it supports somewhat of what I've wanted since I saw the movie.
But what do you think? Let me know in the comments and may the Force be with you.
