I think one of my favourite things about redeemed!Kylo is the thought of him coming face-to-face with Hux.
Scruffy and feral Hux who’s still hurt from Kylo abandoning him, abandoning them.
Hux, who’s lost everything now that the First Order is in ruins, is almost growling as Kylo stands in front of him. He tries not to think of how his Ren has been replaced by this cowardly, false hero with Ren’s body, the body that Hux knows so well.
And Kylo is at peace with himself so he’s unnaturally calm in front of Hux, so opposite of what Hux’s Ren would be like, his eyes soft and his tone warm despite being able to sense the intense anger and hatred rolling off Hux in tsunami-like waves.
Hux calls him ‘Ben’, sneering at him as though the name is an insult and Kylo tries not to react, tries not to show how much Hux’s fury is hurting him.
Kylo promises Hux that he’ll be unharmed if he surrenders quietly, that he doesn’t want to cause Hux any more pain. And he means it.
But Hux won’t surrender, especially not to Ben Solo, the man who killed Kylo Ren and took everything from him.
This is Hux’s last stand.
And it’s against the man who he’s sold his heart and soul to.
