So, we've seen the movie (so if you haven't, another warning to stop reading this thread)....
Ok, so we find out "Kylo Ren" is really "Ben Solo" kid of Han and Leia.
But, we're still in the dark about who "Rey" is, as well as "Finn".
I'm curious to hear others', but here's mine:
1. Rey is actually daughter to Han and Leia, and Ben's sister. I also suspect Rey is not her real name (Han's reaction when she gave the name), and
I suspect it is "Keira" (from a previous script leak way back in June, that just happened to be exactly right when the first film came out). Like
Luke, she will learn her parentage in the next film.
2. Finn is the son of the planetary leader we saw when the New Republic worlds were snuffed out by the First Order's Starkiller base. I think we'll
see Lando as his father (but not showing up until the next film, just as Lando did originally).
My suspicion is that following Ben's going dark while at Luke's new Jedi Academy, Rey was also a fellow student (why she knew how to do some Force
things rather instantly...she didn't guess, she subconsciously remembered). Ben's departure made Han and Leia grow apart as they decided what to do
to avoid Rey having the same fate. Luke suggests a rather invasive approach...mindwiping all to keep her hidden and safe, much as he was hidden as a
They agree, and this is why they don't really recognize Rey as their daughter (but do subconsciously), and why she doesn't recognize them. (she was
old enough, when left on Jakku, to remember her parents, unless she was wiped). It also explains why the Falcon would be sitting there, along with a
false memory of the chain of custody. The mindwipe led to Han and Leia going their separate ways, her to lead the Resistance, and him back to
smuggling with Chewie.
When Rey touched the lightsaber, it was basically a trigger to unlock her suppressed memories as well as other impressions from the object's history.
Though they won't all come back at once. This is also why Luke gives her the look he does when he sees her. He knows that she is no longer safely
hidden, and that he's now back in the saddle again.
My guess is the next movie will be a parallel to Empire...with Luke reteaching Rey, while Han, Leia, Poe, and Finn eventually meet up with Lando (who
knowingly or unknowingly, puts them in a bind with Snokes). (basically, Rey is the new Luke, and Finn is the new Leia, Poe is the new Han). Like in
Empire, something happens where Rey must leave (though this time, I think Luke (Yoda) will come with)...to save her friends.
So, what do YOU think?
