It seems like this is an unpopular opinion but I'm really glad reylo separated at the end. I think kylo needs to find his way on his own now, to make his redemption more satisfying. It wouldn't mean as much to me if he just chose to follow Rey, and also what would they even do in ep IX if that conflict is resolved already in tlj? They have to draw it out.
I agree 100%. Completely. Yeah, at first I was heartbroken, because they got separated yet AGAIN just like in TFA, but remember- people (and sometimes us reylos) thought they’d never cross paths again after TFA. He was the villain, she was the heroine- it was impossible. They both hated each other, is what everyone thought. I want Kylo to be depressed and get his development that he deserves. I do think Rey will play a role, but he will make the choice HIMSELF in the end- because he wants to be with her, as we see in the last moment. He’s heartbroken. We’re on the winning team, ya’ll. Slowburn angst Reylo fanfic, remember?
