Ok... I'm calling it. And I will stick to this THEORY till after the movie.
Firstly my claim(s):
- Dark Rey is an actual character. She is non other than Reys twin sister.
- Dark Rey and Rey are daughthers of Luke.
- Dark Rey is played by Daisy Ridley's real life sister Kika-Rose Ridley. The two look so much alike they could be twins.
So, how does all of this fit together?
Ben Solo (Kylo Ren) was born 5 ABY and atleast Rey (therefore also her twin) were born 15 ABY. That leaves a 10 year difference between Kylo and the
girls. Now... in the old fiction, Han and Leia had twins. But Disney took all of that out of Canon. Why? Because they wanted the twin idea, but they
couldn't have them be Han and Leais kids because Kylo wouldn't forget he had two little twin sisters.
The girls belong to Luke. Around the age of 5 their force sensitivity was already showing. A bit too much actually, because it made the Sith aware of
their exisistance and they dispatched immidiately to kidnap them both. Luke fought valiantly, but in the process lost his love, the mother of the
girls, as well as one of the sisters. He managed to save Rey. But he had no choice but to leave Rey to fend for herself on Jakuu so the empire
wouldn't catch her. Luke knew now he had to contact Leia, because he sensed that Ben Solo now could be a target. He hadn't been trained in force ways,
because Han didn't want him to, and Leia stood by her man.
Until Luke appeared in a desperate mindset. They agreed to keep the twins a secret, just like they had been themselves. But Leia also agreed to haste
Ben through jedi training. Much to the regret of Han. This is infact the reason Han left Leia... He felt betrayed.
Never the less Luke begins training Ben and other sensitives to prepare for what he now knew would be coming. But Ben couldn't handle the pressure and
was probably beginning to take an interest in the dark side. A teenager whose father walked out on him and his mother. Bound to be some issues
Kylo falls... Lukes temple burns. Luke barely escapes. He had intended to go back and get Rey, but everything went so damn fast. In his retreat from
Kylo and the rising 1st Order, he litterally stranded on Ach'to. Not because he wanted to. He simply couldn't leave. Remember the crashed x-wing in
Imagine that now. Here's Luke. Lost one daughter. His newphew as well, and his other daughter is alone on a desert planet and he can't get to her.
But this is also why he looked so dismayed when Rey finally came to Ach'to. It wasn't because Luke didn't want to be found or that he didn't want to
see his lightsaber again. He spent 15 years getting over the loss and now with Rey finding him, he had to relive it all AS WELL as potentially having
to see his other daughter fall into darkness as well. Luke knew very well, that there could only be one reason that Rey found him... Sith was on the
rise again, and he would most likely have to see his untrained daughter fight it off with her own cousin.
Dark Rey fell into darkness as fast as Rey almost did. The reason Rey sees all those Rey's down in the cave. You got it now... remember. Rey saw two
figures... that merged into one. Who is like that? Twins........ Mirror image of oneself. Her images even had a slight latency. Because they weren't
Rey... they were her sister.
Now the trick is; what kind of story will they play when it comes to Palpatine? I think Palpatines essesence was trapped in Vaders helmet. Which is
why Kylo feels so inclined to keep it. They could even go as far as saying that Palpatine was controlling Snoke and using Snokes body until he was
able to return physically himself. This has been told before in Canon stories.
This would also explain why we all felt that Snoke was kind of a useless character. Because, he really was. He was just a vessel for Sidious until her
could catch Rey and posses her instead.
But Palpatine decides to keep Dark Rey a secret from Kylo. He sends her to the unknown regions to gather all the forces and ships he had stoved away
during the last years of his reign. His plan is to keep Dark Rey and use Rey as a catalyst for his return. He will slay Kylo afterwards... he's just a
So. Kylo and Rey face off at the crashed Death Star. But the battle soon turns into a threesome. It doesn't take Kylo long to realise what is going
on. He's been outplayed. But what he doesn't realise... and Rey already teased this in Force Awakens; he's not as strong as Darth Vader, but Dark Rey
is exactly that and more. Of course Kylo now also realises that Dark Rey is Rey's sister. It's almost an embarresment to him. Betterede by a 10 years
younger girl, but one who is also a decendant from Vader.
Rey uses this to turn Kylo towards the light again. But too late. We will have a stand-off like in episode 1 where Darth Maul kills off Qui-Gon.
Except here Dark Rey kills Kylo Ren and we end up with an 1 on 1 between twin sisters.... pure light vs. pure darkness.
Dark Rey will not redeem herself, despite her darkness having been forced upon her. Rey will win... it's Disney after all.
But what a way to finish the 3 time trilogy. It started with twins and it ends with twins. Lucas' rhyme and rythm.
And what futher bolsters this for me is Daisy Ridley answering in an interview ( or was it someone else from the cast), that this final movie will be
groundbreaking... doing something they hadn't done before. And something that will make us viewers ask ourselves some questions:
- Sister vs sister
- Using acutal sisters
- Asking... who is family? What is family?
- Who am I?
- What choice would I make?
Darkness rises and light to meet it.
This is going to be one insane movie. And you know what, just like I had the notion that it would, the last movie will tie it all together and it will
all make sense and what we have left, is a story greater than the original trilogy was.
Have a great christmas
